Help is at hand for local people suffering from hair loss, whether through chemotherapy or alopecia.

A new wig boutique and hair loss clinic, Tresses, has opened at 64 Lisburn Road, Belfast.

Located opposite Belfast's City Hospital and the Macmillan Cancer Centre, the trichology centre — set up by local businesswoman Therese Hughes MBE — provides wig and styling advice.

The quality wig service offers expert advice in a discreet, safe and sympathetic environment.

“Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy are at a very tough place in their lives and loss of hair can be an extra trauma,” said Theresa, who was awarded her MBE by Prince Charles last year for her services to health care.

“We do everything we can to help our clients find a wig that

will make them look great, help rebuild their confidence again and provide a much needed morale boost.”

For alopecia patients, an onsite consultant trichologist, Laura Berry, can treat adult and child patients for ailments including alopecia areata, female pattern hair loss, diffuse hair thinning, male pattern baldness and other ailments such as dandruff, psoriasis, eczema and seborrhoea.

To make an appointment, call 9033 2221 or visit www.wigs-ireland.ie for more information.
