Client Happy to Know He Could Keep His Hair as Long as He Wants

June 17th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Jake* first realised his hair was becoming thinner when he was 26. But as no one around him had mentioned it, this gradual loss did not cause him much concern to begin with. The first comment came from his hairdresser during a haircut. Hearing her point out that she could see his hair thinning was enough to send Jake running to book an appointment with a hair loss specialist.

During his first consultation the benefits of Ashley and Martin’s medical hair regrowth program were shown to Jake. Rather than relying on a single treatment option to combat the effects of his hair loss, the proposed intervention would target all facets of Jake’s loss; disrupting the actual process causing his hair to fall out and reversing the detrimental effects of male pattern baldness. Photographs of other patients with similar hair loss programs to Jake illustrated just how effective the RealGROWTH® hair loss treatment program could be in his situation.

Knowing his work schedule would be hectic, Jake was concerned he may not be able to regularly attend the recommended low-level laser therapy appointments in the clinic. The consultant reassured him that despite not being able to participate fully in the program, he would still see positive results as long as he diligently followed his treatment routine at home.

It was not until twelve months later that Jake was finally able to find the time to attend an Ashley and Martin Review appointment. Looking at photos taken a year previously in his initial appointment next to ones taken that day, Jake could see his adherence to his daily treatment routine had paid off. His hair was back to its former, thick state and he was very happy to know he would be able to maintain his hair for as long as it was important to him.

Case Study: Client Sees Himself From Behind in Photos and Reaches His Turning Point

May 22nd, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

For Lee*, hair loss was something that was easy to put to the back of his mind. The thinning he was experiencing was taking place predominantly on his crown and it had become an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ situation for him. However, cameras were not so forgiving as the bathroom mirror.

It was the comments about his bald patch by a friend looking at photos from a function he had attended that prompted Lee to reach his turning point. He had always been aware he was losing hair, but now he was determined to put an end to it.

Lee met with a consultant at Ashley and Martin to find out how to put an end to the hair loss he had inherited from other men in his family. The whole process of arresting and reversing male pattern hair loss with medical treatment was laid out by his consultant and satisfied that he was in good hands, Lee was keen to start the process straight away.

Although it was difficult for Lee to attend the clinic for regular laser therapy appointments, he was diligent with his simple, nightly treatment routine at home. And before he even had progress photos taken by his consultant during the review process, he knew his treatment was working. Where his crown had been sparsely covered with thin hairs previously, he could see thicker, darker, healthier hairs budding and filling his bald patch.

As more hair follicles exited their dormancy and began to grow, the same friend who had initially prompted him to seek treatment by commenting on his photos spoke out about the changes there were seeing. They were amazed by the fuller head of hair Lee was sporting and could not believe things had turned around for him so quickly.

After reaching his turning point and coming to Ashley and Martin, Lee had no reason to be camera shy.

Case Study: Young Man Surprised Hair Loss Starts So Early

May 6th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

It was a surprise to Tom* that many young men in their 20’s sought help from Ashley and Martin. Until it had happened to him, he had thought that male pattern baldness was something that only affected older men.

His own hair loss had crept up on him. It was not until he had been a party and someone had remarked on how thin his hair was looking that the extent of it had really registered with Tom. The comment had come from left field and, like Tom, they were surprised that hair loss was affecting someone so young.

After seeing an advert on TV for Ashley and Martin, Tom knew he had reached his turning point. He booked a free consultation to discuss what Ashley and Martin could do for him.

The RealGROWTH® program the consultant offered him sounded like it would accomplish everything Tom was hoping for. A way to slow his hair loss to a more natural rate, prompt dormant follicles to re-enter their growth phase, protect new hair and promote overall density. Keen to get the process underway, Tom signed up for his program straight away.

After four months of treatment, Tom returned to his consultant to have progress photos taken. The difference sixteen weeks had made was hard to believe. His family had noticed the changes and had been giving him positive feedback and encouragement but, as he could not see the crown of his head himself, the hair regrowth had not been as evident to him. Only sorry he had not sought help from Ashley and Martin sooner, Tom was thrilled by the results he had achieved in such a short space of time. Hair thicker, darker and healthier, Tom had already accomplished everything he was hoping for by coming to Ashley and Martin and knew there would be no more out of the blue comments about his thinning hair at the next party he went to.

Case Study: Client Regrows Hair Thanks to Empathetic Friend

April 15th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

It was a close friend that referred Joe* to Ashley and Martin. Having noticed how sparse the covering over Joe’s entire scalp had become, he empathised with how concerning this might be. Joe confided that he was not happy about losing his hair at all and it was something he would like to fix. Knowing Ashley and Martin would be able to help, Joe’s friend strongly suggested he make an appointment to go and see a hair loss consultant. After all, it had worked for him.

Chatting with his consultant during his free consultation, Joe talked about his family history of male pattern hair loss; his own having become apparent over the past five years. After further discussing his medical history and Joe’s expectations of treatment, the consultant had a clear idea of the cause of the condition and what Joe aimed to achieve. A strong candidate for the RealGROWTH® program, the consultant explained the process of treatment to Joe.

With the history of baldness in the family, Joe knew without a shadow of a doubt what was in his future if he did not engage in treatment. And having seen the results RealGROWTH® had given his friend, Joe confidently signed up for his own treatment program.

Joe diligently followed his program as laid out by his consultant, attending fortnightly laser therapy treatments at the clinic and following what he found to be a simple, in-home routine.

Four months after he started his treatment, Joe sat down with his consultant to assess his progress to date. During his free consultation, the two men had taken photos of Joe’s hair from several angles so as to have an accurate picture of how much progress Joe was making with his program. Comparing these photos to ones taken that date, Joe was thrilled with what he saw. Not only had it been an easy process to fit into his daily routine, but the early results spoke for themselves.

Case Study: Client’s Wife Loves His New, Youthful Look

April 3rd, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Oddly enough, Kyle had Married at First Sight to thank for the full head of hair he was sporting for the first time in seven years. Married at First Sight and Ashley and Martin.

While he had watched his hair consistently diminish over the past seven years, it was not until he saw one of the bald grooms on Married at First Sight that Kyle finally started to pay attention to the adverts for Ashley and Martin that came on during the breaks. He had not so much as tried an over the counter shampoo to try and regrow hair before, but now he was putting serious consideration into getting treatment. Like the men in the ads he saw every time Married at First Sight was on, perhaps he had reached his turning point too.

With determination to explore solutions to his problem, the 31-year-old walked into a clinic in the city to speak with someone. The consultant he sat down with laid out all the options available to him, not only medical hair loss treatment. Hair systems, transplants, medications and laser treatment; all of which Ashley and Martin could provide for him. Not keen to wear a hair system to cover up his hair loss yet, and wanting to try something less invasive than surgery to begin with, Kyle chose to begin a RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program with laser therapy straight away.

Kyle found his treatment worked so well that he became a regular face in the clinic. His laser therapy appointments becoming part of his regular fortnightly routine and the routine reviews to track his progress were always encouraging. Kyle was able to regrow so much hair that he hardly needed the progress photos to show him the changes he had undergone. Not only could he see it, but his wife absolutely loved his new, youthful look.

Case Study: Client Breathes Easier Knowing He No Longer Needs to Make His Peace with Going Bald

February 12th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Bob* had come to Ashley and Martin as a result of a decline in the quality of the hair on his crown over the past six years. The regression had been gradual; however it was now at a point where he could no longer ignore it. In the beginning, Bob had found hairstyles to hide the thinning and tried to convince himself that going bald did not bother him. But as the comments from friends about his bald patch became more frequent, Bob knew that going bald was not something he was willing to accept.

At 28-years-old, Bob was fit and healthy with no underlying medical issues that may be impacting the growth cycle of his hair. The consultant he met with felt he would be a perfect candidate for the RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program. To give Bob a clear picture of what could be achieved using the comprehensive treatment program, the consultant showed him before and after photos of past Ashley and Martin clients who had experienced a similar hair loss to his own. After seeing the spectacular results the RealGROWTH® program had produced, he was all too happy to proceed.

While work commitments prevented Bob from collecting some of his prescription medications straight away and attending laser therapy appointments, when his first Ashley and Martin Review was due after four months, he was pleasantly surprised at the progress he saw. He knew he had not been as diligent as some in engaging in laser therapy and he had set his progress back by not collecting his medication straight away but even these setbacks had not stopped his hair from returning.

Commenting on how easy his treatment routine was, Bob confided that he was no longer having to find ways to hide the fact his hair was falling out. His program had halted the excessive shedding and new hair had started to grow from previously dormant follicles. Moving forward Bob could breathe easier knowing he was not going to have to make his peace with going bald.

Case Study: Client Completely Blown Away by RealGROWTH Results

January 16th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

It was comments from his family and friends that prompted Dave* to search for a medical hair replacement company to help him regrow the hair he had lost. At 51, it was not overly surprising to see his hair disappearing, however it was not something he was ready to embrace yet. It had been six years since his male pattern baldness had started to present and now, with the encouragement of people close to him, he was ready to get started solving his problem.

He met with a consultant at an Ashley and Martin clinic in the city to discuss the treatment options available to him. Confident that a RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program would be the most effective way to reverse the genetic hair loss Dave was experiencing, the consultant laid out how the different components would work and a realistic idea of what could be achieved. Dave’s program would include both prescription medication and a medicated topical solution; keen to start regrowing his hair straight away he booked and appointment with the clinic hair doctor in order to have his medication prescribed.

Case Study: Hair Dresser Sees Great Results in Clients Who Use Ashley and Martin

December 18th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Winston’s* hairdresser had seen first hand the results that were possible with Ashley and Martin’s medical hair loss treatment multiple times. For years she had been referring her clients to Ashley and Martin for specialist advice when they expressed their frustration and disappointment over their thinning locks. Forty-five and not ready to go bald, Winston followed his hairdresser’s advice and contacted Ashley and Martin to discuss the right hair loss treatment for him.

The consultant Winston met with could see that the pattern of loss he wasexperiencing was consistent with the genetic trait, androgenic alopecia. Better known as male pattern baldness, this form of alopecia that had affected the men in Winston’s family would be addressable using a combination of treatments. Over time some of Winston’s hair follicles had miniaturised and eventually become dormant resulting in the thin coverage that made its way from Winston’s temples to his crown.

It was recommended that Winston enrol on a RealGROWTH® medical hair loss treatment program to provide the comprehensive and targeted treatment that androgenic alopecia requires to be halted and reversed. Each component was explained to Winston, giving him ample opportunity to ask questions and feel comfortable with the treatment he would be receiving. Each of the medications and supplements he was to receive would work together to intervene in the process causing his hair loss on a hormonal level, trigger dormant cells to reenter their anagen phase and stimulate new hair growth. Specialised shampoo and conditioner would further be used to provide a hospitable environment for the newly growing hair follicles with laser therapy appointments performed at the clinic to further promote new hair growth.

Despite the fact that Winston did not adhere to his laser therapy schedule, both he and his hairdresser began to see undeniable results. He hardly needed to see the comparison photos at his first Ashely and Martin review to feel confident in the amount of new growth he had already received. But seeing photos contrasting the changes that had happened over just sixteen weeks was striking. To anyone meeting him for the first time, they would have no idea that four months previously he had been on his way to going bald before 50.

Case Study: Hair Regrowth Success Through Ashley and Martin

December 10th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Lucas had been well aware of his hair loss for a several years, however it wasn’t until a comment from a work colleague hit too close to home that he decided he needed to start looking for a hair loss solution. Turning to the internet to research his problem, Lucas found the information he needed on the Ashley and Martin website. Impressed by the gallery of before and after images and the free consultation on offer, Lucas used the online contact form to request a call from an Ashley and Martin representative. A staff member called shortly after to schedule an appointment at a time that suited Lucas’ schedule.

During his first appointment, the consultant took photos of Lucas’ hair from every angle. Bringing these up on the monitor, Lucas was able to objectively assess the severity of his own hair loss. These photos showed Lucas his crown from a vantage point he had never seen it from before. And while he had known it was thinning, it was a surprise to see just how sparse the covering across the top of his head truly was. Hair loss felt almost inevitable to Lucas, it had been passed on to him from close relatives on both sides of his family; the pattern of loss he was seeing was in keeping with these family members.

To combat this excessive hair fall and regrow what he had lost, his consultant recommended Lucas undertake a RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program. Not wanting to waste any time, Lucas decided to sign up right away as to prevent any further loss.
Determined to make the most of his program, Lucas followed the clinic doctor’s advice closely. And when it came time to review his results he was overjoyed with the changes. Even before his Progress Review, Lucas was receiving positive feedback from friends who had seen the visible changes to the thickness and health of his hair. With their words in mind, Lucas was not surprised to see that the new photos taken of his hair showed he had gained the hair regrowth he had set out to achieve by coming to Ashley and Martin.

Case Study: Persistence Pays Off Through Ashley and Martin

December 5th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Gregory had always been resigned to the fact he would lose his hair due to the strong history of genetic hair loss that ran through his family. Before this family trait became a reality for him, Gregory had assumed he would just shave his head once it started and deal with it. However, once the loss started to happen and grew more and more apparent Gregory found it shook his confidence more than he realised it would and his image of himself changes as his hair continued to shed. After seeing numerous ads on television, Gregory decided to book a consultation with Ashley and Martin.

Feeling he had left it too long to be able to fix his hair loss, Gregory came to his first appointment with very little hope that the damage could be reversed. The consultant, however, was not so sure there was no room for hope. After a scalp examination and an assessment of Gregory’s medical history, the consultant recommended undertake a RealGROWTH® treatment program to address his male pattern baldness. With any medical intervention there would be limitations and Gregory’s consultant made sure he was aware of the realistic results that may be achieved with this advanced degree of hair loss.

Gregory started the treatment and at first experienced irritation from the RealGROWTH® solution. Contact with the doctor he had initially consulted for his prescription medication at the Ashley and Martin clinic was arranged straight away and an alternative solution was prescribed at no extra cost to his program.

Unfortunately for Gregory, the irritation continued. It was at this time Gregory began to lose all faith in the treatment and feared no options would be available to him. But Ashley and Martin were not so quick to give up. Further changes were made to the topical solution Gregory would need to apply every day and Gregory was finally able to apply a daily dosage without adverse reaction.

After four months of consistent treatment Gregory came in for his first Ashley and Martin Progress Review. Still dubious that the treatment had made any differences at all, Gregory had become very down beat about the entire process. This negative view of his treatment did not have a chance to last much longer than it took to take progress photos and put them up on the screen alongside the ones from his initial consultation. There had been some significant gains and Gregory instantly felt much better about his new, healthy hair growth.
