Our Trichologist – Giovanni De Lellis MIT

Giovanni De Lellis MIT is a qualified trichologist, and a registered Member of the Institute of Trichologists (IOT), which is the foremost professional association for trichologists worldwide.

He qualified as a trichologist by successfully completing the four-year Institute of Trichologists training programme and mentorship over twelve years ago. Members of The IOT are trained in medical matters and to gain an understanding of the complex nature of the human body, trichologists study such areas as body systems, nutrition, and the chemistry and physiology of the hair and scalp. The trainee trichologist will also study pharmaceutical preparations, trichological procedures, health and hygiene, hair shaft problems, hair loss and scalp problems, chemistry, massage, electrotherapy and microdiagnostic techniques. It is a demanding course with rigorous examinations at each stage of the training, and final year students have to pass an examination comprising two written papers, a practical and a viva voce examination. Institute tutors and examiners include experienced and highly demanding doctors, dermatologists, scientists and trichologists.

Like all science, there are daily advancements in trichology and members keep up to date with these through the Continuing Professional Development programme designed by the IOT, which includes regular seminars and conferences. Giovanni also attended the annual International Trichology Congress in Manchester.

Giovanni initially trained and qualified in hairdressing & barbering. He is State Registered, a Master Craftsman Barber, a national educator & trichology advisor to the Great British Barbering Academy and a Barbering Apprenticeship Assessor for VTCT. He began working in his family’s long established hairdressing salon at a young age. It was here that his interest in trichology developed. He noticed many clients were visiting the salon with underlying hair and scalp complaints. Not really knowing what these conditions were and who to refer to he decided to research the matter further, when he came across the world of trichology. He found the subject so fascinating that he decided to train and qualify as a trichologist.

The trichology clinic initially operated from his family hair salon, however the clinic has continued to grow over the years and Giovanni has now taken over seperate private premises next door at 63 St Matthews Street, Ipswich. Here our patients enjoy private consultations and hair and scalp treatments with the convenience of a town centre location. Giovanni has also previously consulted for The Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital.
