Dr Paul Farrant

Consultant Dermatologist


As a general dermatologist I see patients with all types of skin problems, from acne to zoon’s. My interests include acne, eczema and psoriasis.

Working on the South Coast, approximately 50% of a dermatologist’s workload is related to sun damage and skin cancer and these are treated by medical and surgical means.

My main clinical interest is hair loss and scalp disorders and I run the only regional clinic in the South dedicated to this. I set up the British Hair and Nail Group and lectures widely on hair loss.
