Dr Paul Farrant graduated with distinction from Guys and St Thomas Medical School in 1999 and decided early in his career to specialise in dermatology. Ten years later, in 2009, he was appointed as a consultant dermatologist at The Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust.
A general dermatologist with specialist expertise in traditional medical dermatology (acne, eczema, psoriasis), skin cancer and surgery, his major sub-speciality interest is in hair and scalp disorders.
Dr Farrant is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the European Hair Research Society, and founder of the British Hair and Nail Society. He is a national expert on hair loss and scalp conditions and lectures both nationally and internationally on this subject, as well as contributing to leading texts, publications, guidelines and research.
