Kate Dawes is the senior trichologist and Director of Medical Hair Restoration Australia.
Registered with the International Association of Trichologists, Kate specialises in male and female hair loss, having over 30 years of experience in the hair industry.
“My aim is to help people overcome hair loss holistically using a multi-therapy approach. I look at their diet, lifestyle, genetics and other contributing factors before prescribing treatments”.
“Hair loss can have a devastating effect on a person’s self esteem and needs to be addressed on an individual basis. I like to educate my patients about the anatomy and physiology of the hair so they can gain an understanding of why they are losing their hair and how to stop further hair loss”
During a consultation, microscopic photos of their hair, scalp and follicles are taken and often blood tests are required to determine other possible causes. If necessary we perform a hair mineral analysis test. Once we have all the test results an individualised treatment can be prescribed.
