Case Study: Multifaceted Treatment Gives Client Everything He Had Hoped For

April 22nd, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

With a slight, diffuse thinning on top that had recently begun to show, 25-year-old Nick* had been losing his hair for the past six months. And with a mother, father, and grandfather that had all suffered from hair loss at different times in their lives, Nick had guessed that he was suffering from male pattern baldness long before he was diagnosed by the Ashley and Martin hair loss consultant. Whilst only a level II on the Norwood Hair Loss Scale at this stage, he was not yet ready to give in or let it get any worse.

Anxious about the way his hair loss was affecting his appearance, a family member had suggested he contact Ashley and Martin for help. Fit and healthy with no underlying medical issues, Nick had already tried a prescription-based treatment before coming to Ashley and Martin in the hopes that it would stop him from following in his father’s footsteps. But without the results he had been looking for, Nick turned to the experts in medical hair regrowth.

Recommending a multifaceted approach to treating the widening part line and thinning hair Nick was experiencing, the consultant explained why simply using prescription tablets had not increased the density of his hair as Nick had hoped. Enrolling to get started straight away, Nick looked forward to seeing if the RealGROWTH® medical hair loss treatment would deliver what his last treatment had promised.

And it did.

Using his simple nightly routine and attending the clinic for regular laser therapy appointments, Nick began to see his hair increase in density, becoming thicker, fuller, and healthier within a few short months. By the time he met with his consultant to review the first four months of progress he had made, he was astounded by the difference sixteen weeks had made. Nick had gotten everything he had hoped for by coming to Ashley and Martin.

Case Study: Results Happen So Quickly for Client, Mates are Surprised at how Thick and Healthy His Hair Looks

March 25th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Empathising with how 20-year-old Steven must feel, a family member suggested contacting Ashley and Martin after repeatedly seeing billboards and advertising for medical hair loss treatment over the years. The hair loss gene had struck Steven young; at 20 he had already been losing his hair for over three years. And had tried a plethora of over the counter shampoos marketed towards fixing his problem. But clearly they hadn’t worked. Feeling that it was all but guaranteed he would lose his hair in the same way his father and uncle had, Steven decided to contact Ashley and Martin online. He had already been wishing he could treat his hair for the past two years; and there was no reason to put it off any longer.

A natural worrier, Steven’s levels of anxiety had risen substantially over the past few years, impacting the growth cycle of his hair and exacerbating the effects of his genetic hair loss. Examining his hair, the Ashley and Martin consultant placed his androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss, at a level III vertex on the Norwood Hair Loss Scale and recommended RealGROWTH® medical hair loss treatment to Steven. The hair loss gene was strong in Stevens family, even his maternal grandmother had suffered. So, with real concerns about how much more hair he would lose in his early 20’s, Steven opted to move forward with treatment straight away.

Five month later, during his first Ashley and Martin Progress Review, Steven told his consultant that his results had happened so quickly that even mates that did not know he was using a medical hair loss treatment had commented about how much thicker and healthier his hair looked. Family members had commented about the increase in his hair’s density and Steven was brimming with confidence. Overjoyed with the early results of his treatment program, Steven was keen to see what his next Progress Review would show.

Case Study: Ecstatic Client Gets Great Feedback from Barber on Medical Hair Loss Treatment Results

March 11th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Stress free and in good health aside from a manageable skin condition, Hunter* had come to Ashley and Martin as he was concerned about his level of hair loss at just 19 years old. While he still had the confidence of a young man who was starting out in Uni and keeping fit at the gym, a little bit of self-consciousness had started emerge. He had tried using a well known hair regrowth remedy from the pharmacy, however it had not worked for him and nine months after his hair loss had first started he had booked an appointment for a free consultation with Ashley and Martin.
The consultant he met with performed a scalp examination and diagnosed him with Norwood III vertex male pattern hair loss, which was not a surprise to Hunter, or his mother who had come along for support. Both of Hunter’s grandfathers had lost their hair as well. Gathering all the information about medical hair loss treatment and the results he could expect to see using Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® program, Hunter and his mother returned home to think things over. And within two weeks they had made the decision to go ahead with treatment.

Attending regular laser therapy appointments and adhering diligently to his nightly treatment routine, Hunter’s hair responded extremely well to treatment. Ecstatic about the new hair growth he was seeing, even Hunter’s barber had commented on just how good his hair was looking. In the first four months of treatment, the sparsely covered area on Hunter’s crown had grown in dense and thick with only the smallest area even hinting at his former hair loss. His hair was healthier and his skin condition had not presented an issue for either the topical solution or laser therapy appointments. Hunter could not have imagined medical hair loss treatment could turn his hair loss around in half the time it had taken to develop.

Case Study: Medical Hair Loss Treatment Succeeds After Overseas Hair Transplant Fails

February 5th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Especially keen to avoid the genetic hair loss that plagued his family, Keith* had travelled overseas to get a hair transplant. However, without further preventative medical treatment, the genetics Keith shared with his father, grandfather and uncles took over, and before long his new hair was heading towards the same fate. Connecting with the stories he saw for Ashley and Martin’s non-surgical hair regrowth treatment on TV, Keith picked up the phone to make an appointment. Scalp clearly visible through his short, dark hair, Keith met with an Ashley and Martin consultant three years after his partner had first pointed out that his hair was thinning again.

During the scalp examination his consultant performed, Keith shared that he felt his hair thinning across a greater area than it had been before his transplants. Previously a level V on the Norwood hair loss scale, he could see that the sparse areas through his temples had connected with the crown and progressed him to a level VI. This was of real concern to Keith as he had already filled these areas back in with his hair transplant. The conversation with his consultant also revealed that the gym supplements the 32-year-old had been taking were known to affect hair loss.

Signing up for treatment straight away, Keith opted to attend the clinic for laser therapy and the simple medical treatment routine was quick and fit in to his schedule easily. Though with work commitments and his dedication to the gym, Keith was unable to attend the clinic for laser therapy as often has recommended. Thankfully this had little impact on the results Keith saw happening soon after starting his treatment. Filling in the temporal, forelock, and midscalp regions in just sixteen weeks, the early results of his medical hair loss treatment were astounding. A fraction of the cost of his failed hair transplant, Keith was extremely happy he had called Ashley and Martin.

Case Study: Skin Condition No Barrier to Successful Hair Loss Treatment

January 8th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

James* had been losing his hair for the past two years, but it did not take him nearly that long to make the call once he made the decision to find a hair loss treatment that works. Four weeks after he felt compelled to do something about it, he was sitting across from an Ashley and Martin consultant for a free consultation. Heading straight for a professional, medical solution, James had not tried any other hair loss remedies before coming in.

A scalp examination confirmed that 23 year old James was suffering from Norwood level III vertex male pattern hair loss. Concerned about losing his hair whilst so young, James was hoping his consultant had a solution that would not exacerbate his eczema. Confident he had a solution to James’ hair loss that would not irritate his sensitive skin, the consultant explained to James how the RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program worked and the support he would receive from the team in the clinic; this included the clinic hair loss doctors should he need to follow up with them due to his skin condition. Happy with everything he had been shown, but wanting to think it over, it was two weeks before James came back to the clinic to start his RealGROWTH® program.

By the time James was coming to the end of his program, he was pleased to find he had not experienced any adverse reactions at all to the topical solution he applied to his scalp each day. The only reaction he did seem to have had was the reactivation of dormant hair follicles, giving him his thick, healthy hair back again. Healthy and fit, the amazing results he had received from his medical hair regrowth treatment made James feel great about his whole appearance again.

Case Study: In-Home Laser Therapy and RealGROWTH Regrows Hair without Clinic Visits

December 10th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Approaching middle age, Justin* had been shedding hair at a worryingly accelerated rate for the past four years. His weakened frontal hair line, balding crown, and widening part line had caused him to be concerned about his appearance for the first time in a long time, and for the past six months, Justin had been thinking about finding a way to treat hair loss. Turning straight to the experts in the field, Justin’s first port of call was Ashley and Martin.

Bringing his partner along to his first consultation, the couple listened to the hair loss solutions presented to them. Fit and healthy with no other underlying medical conditions, a scalp examination had confirmed a diagnosis of male pattern hair loss, Norwood III vertex; and Ashley and Martin’s medical hair loss treatment program was extremely effective in treating this condition. It often had the effect of improving conditions such as the dandruff Justin was suffering also. Offering the couple the option of attending the clinic for laser therapy treatments or their own laser therapy device to use at home, they decided to purchase a laser cap so that Justin could treat his hair in the comfort of his own home at a time that suited his busy schedule.

By the time Justin attended the clinic for his first Ashley and Martin Review of his medical hair loss treatment program, there was no denying that the past four months of treatment had been effective in helping him regrow hair. Whilst most of the results were happening where he was unable to see them, his partner had been able to see his crown and part line cover over with new hair. Looking at the photos taken that day against ones taken in his first appointment, Justin could not believe how quickly his hair was regrowing and he was thrilled that he had been able to beat the hair loss he had inherited from his father.

Case Study: Shocked by Impressive Results in Just Twelve Weeks

November 19th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Shocked his medical hair growth program had produced such impressive results in such a short amount of time, it had only taken twelve weeks before Bassaym’s hair was substantially thicker. A further five weeks later, Bassaym met with his consultant to assess the progress he was making on his program. To track any changes and have a clear picture of how much hair regrew, the consultant had taken photos of his hair from multiple angles in the initial appointment. And during the four month progress review, she put photos taken that day up alongside Bassaym’s original photos, just as she would at subsequent reviews.

When he had first come to Ashley and Martin after hearing about the treatment on TV, his dark, tight curls had clearly shown his scalp through the sparsely populated hair. And although he had not come into the clinic for the regular laser therapy appointments that had been recommended, the photos he was looking at now showed a substantial improvement. The regular use of his nightly RealGROWTH® routine had worked wonders without it. The Norwood level IV loss he had inherited from his family, had all but disappeared.

A gregarious young man who loved to hang out with his friends and socialise when not at university, Bassaym had been losing confidence before he had come to Ashley and Martin. His self-esteem disappearing with his hair. Now 25 years old, Bassaym had been able to regrow hair and regain confidence thanks to his RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program.

Case Study: Friends and Colleagues Notice How Good Client’s Hair Looks During Treatment

October 30th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

In the last six months Jack’s* thinning hair had accelerated, prompting him to give serious consideration to seeking medical hair loss treatment. It had only taken eighteen months to get to this point since his hair had initially started falling out, starting to shed at just 20 years old. Now 22, Jack bypassed home remedies and pharmacy products, finding and contacting Ashley and Martin online. Under increased pressure at work in the last six and a half months, Jack did not need the added stress of losing his hair on top of everything else.

Generally fit and active, Jack had no other medical issues to report that may exacerbate his condition and the consultant diagnosed him with Male Pattern Hair Loss, Norwood III vertex during his first appointment. With an uncle on his father’s side losing his hair as well, Jack had not been surprised to learn that his hair loss was genetic. Intervening in the hair loss process to stop the production of 5α-reductase and support the reactivation of dormant follicles and new, thicker growth, Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program would be ideal for Jack. Accepting his consultant’s suggested course of treatment, Jack signed up to start his treatment during his first appointment and was booked in to see the clinic hair loss doctor straight away.

Despite not attending regular laser appointments, daily use of the rest of his RealGROWTH® program prompted a great deal of positive comments over the coming months. And it was not only the people who knew he was treating his hair that were noticing the difference. Friends and colleagues who he had not told about going to Ashley and Martin were also mentioning how good his hair was looking. With new hair and new confidence, Jack was extremely pleased he had contacted Ashley and Martin for help.

Case Study: Health and Density of Hair Improves Quickly for Client in Early Stages of Hair Loss

May 27th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Growing up, Mark’s* light brown hair had always been full and wavy. Now in his mid-twenties, this was no longer the case. While still wavy, Mark’s hair was showing early signs of his follicles entering prolonged dormancy. He was worried that if he did not do something quickly, he would end up bald like his father. After all, it had only taken twelve months of accelerated shedding to leave him with areas of his scalp showing through sparse patches of hair.

A quick Google search for an effective hair loss treatment turned up Ashley and Martin’s website. From there it was simply a matter of submitting the online contact form and waiting for a call back from his preferred clinic. Open until 7pm, it was easy for Mark to find an appointment time that suited his work and social commitments.

The consultant he met with conducted a scalp examination which, along with taking his lifestyle and medical history into account, confirmed that Mark’s hair loss was genetic. The consultant informed Mark that his swift action in regards to seeking treatment put him in a good place to regrow hair from his dormant follicles. She took him through the multi-faceted RealGROWTH® program and explained how each element would combat a specific element of his hair loss.

Having already been thinking about treatment for the last few months, it was an easy decision for Mark to sign up for treatment then and there.

Mark was impressed with the results he was seeing. His hair was once again the thick, wavy mop it had been a year and a half ago. Not only had the density of his hair increased, but the health of his hair had improved also. Having gotten everything he had hoped for from the program that had been easy to incorporate into his routine, Mark would recommend medical hair regrowth with Ashley and Martin to anyone who needed it.

Case Study: Quick, Nightly Routine Regrows Hair and Brings Newfound Confidence

May 6th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Tom’s* father had started losing his hair when he was a younger man. Now Tom, in his mid-forties, was going through the same process. It had only been two years since he had first started to notice the effects of his genetically inherited hair loss, but the effects had decimated his once lush, black, wavy mop. Hair grey, patchy and sparse throughout, Tom reached out to Ashley and Martin after turning to Google to find the solution to his problem.

After a scalp examination and conversation about his health confirmed the source of Tom’s hair loss, the consultant explained how the anti-androgenic component of Ashley and Martin’s medical hair regrowth program would intervene in the process wherein DHT caused his hair follicles to miniaturise and enter dormancy. Further intervention strategies would be employed alongside the anti-androgenic medication prescribed to him by the clinic doctor including a prescription topical solution, herbal supplement, low level laser therapy and specialised scalp hygiene products.

Listening to all of this information, Tom was sure the RealGROWTH® program recommended to him had to work better than the over the counter remedy he had tried to regrow hair with. It had been a year since he had first started giving serious thought to treating his hair and with the solution to hair loss in front of him, he signed up immediately.

Following the instructions his consultant and the clinic doctor gave him was a simple process that took hardly any time out of his nightly routine. And finding time to visit the clinic for regular laser therapy appointments was easy with the clinic opening hours.

His consultant had been honest with him about what treatment could achieve with hair loss that had advanced to the stage he was at so Tom was not expecting miracles to happen overnight. But that was not to say he did not expect anything at all. He just knew he had to be patient.

After twelve months of regular treatment and review appointments to track Tom’s progress on his program, Tom sat across from his consultant brimming with newfound confidence as she showed him photos taken at his first appointment compared to the ones taken that day. His hair looked vastly different to when he had first met her and Tom only wished he had come to Ashley and Martin sooner.
