The Hair Loss Clinic TV series (Discovery+)
3rd November 2021
Filmed at The Maitland Clinic and featuring our medical director Dr Edward Ball and trichologist Eva Proudman MI IAT, The Hair Loss Clinic provides a realistic portrayal of the impact of hair loss on ordinary people – and of the enormous psychological and emotional benefits that high quality professional hair treatment can offer.
Over five episodes it follows the experiences of women and men suffering various types of hair loss and scalp conditions, and reveals the effects of the different treatments they receive at The Maitland Clinic.
Sensitively filmed by Angel Eye Media, the series shows the detailed realities of the medical, trichological and surgical procedures carried out at the clinic, including hair transplant surgery.
But above all it focuses on the emotional impact of hair loss: the way it can destroy people’s confidence and cast a shadow over their daily lives and relationships, leaving them feeling isolated, humiliated and unsure where to turn for help. They may suffer in silence for years, believing that help is unavailable, unaffordable or something to be embarrassed about.
The Hair Loss Clinic shows that hair treatment is real, effective and can benefit anyone. The series showcases the latest medical and surgical technologies and innovations available at The Maitland Clinic and the remarkable results that can potentially be achieved. But just as importantly, it demonstrates that good hair restoration professionals can provide caring, empathetic help to every patient.
A core ethos of The Maitland Clinic is that each man or woman who walks through our doors is unique, and their hair treatment should fit with their lifestyle and last them for life. The Hair Loss Clinic shows, episode by episode, how Dr Ball and Eva Proudman take the time to get to know each patient as an individual, and design their treatment not just for a scalp, but for the whole person.
