Case Study: Stress at Work Exacerbates Genetic Hair Loss Condition

December 29th, 2016 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies in Case Studies

Although Greg* loved his job, it did cause him quite a bit of stress. He was only 26 years old but already he had risen to a management role in a busy environment. Greg had been losing his hair for over five years and he could not really recall a point in all that time where he had not given hair loss treatment serious thought. He had even tried, quite unsuccessfully, using hair loss products he had found in his local chemist.

After gathering background information and conducting a scalp examination the consultant told Greg his loss was, as suspected, inherited from his father’s side of the family. The stress he was under at work was possibly exacerbating the issue, accelerating his Norwood level V vertex loss. A medications program consisting of topical solution, anti-androgens, herbal supplements and laser therapy was suggested as the best method of intervention in Greg’s genetic condition.

The consultant showed Greg how the treatment plan he had laid out for him differed from not only what he had tried before, but how it differed from treatments in other hair loss clinics. Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® program seemed, to Greg, to be the most comprehensive and best hair loss treatment available to him. He signed up on a RealGROWTH® program and booked his appointment to see the clinic’s hair loss doctor. Hair growth products such as specialised shampoo and conditioner, herbal supplements were given to him before he left the clinic so he could start treating his hair as soon as possible.

His first Ashley and Martin review took place four months after he began treatment as discussed in his initial appointment. New photos were taken to compare to the ones taken before he began treating his hair loss. Although Greg had not come in to the clinic for regular laser therapy appointments, there were still encouraging and positive results achieved.
