People experiencing hair loss constitute a significant number of our clients. We have years of experience in providing treatments for people with alopecia, those who are experiencing chemotherapy or have other health conditions leading to hair loss.
Services available for our NHS clients are our free consultation/wig fitting with Helen. Free Permanent makeup consultations with Tara to chat about and draw on how we can recreate your eyebrows or give you eye definition with our permanent eyeliners.
Any clients buying a wig can also have a complimentary makeup by one of our team along with help and advice on how to draw on eyebrows and eyeliner. We also stock a waterproof range of eyeliner and eyebrow pencils from our Blinc range which is suitable for clients having chemotherapy treatment.
We are NHS contracted wig suppliers. This means we can accept prescriptions provided they are made out in the name of facefacts . We are CRB checked so we are ‘fit to deal with children and vulnerable adults’
If you qualify for a prescription either your dermatologist or consultant will tell you. In most cases you will have a prescription charge approx. £67.75 this is reviewed every April, but there are exemptions so make sure you ask the hospital.
Once the hospital have sent through your prescription which can take a few days after you paying the hospital you can ring us to make an appointment with Helen. Fittings are normally carried out on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Simply because its quieter for the clients as the retail area can be very busy on other days and we like to make sure all clients are looked after to the best of our abilities.
