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.

Determined to achieve the best results possible, Dave followed his RealGROWTH® program to the letter. He took his medication daily and attended laser therapy appointments at the clinic. By the time four months had passed, Dave was completely blown away by the results his RealGROWTH® program had given him. He felt he had recovered almost all of his lost hair and could not believe what a simple process it had been to generate such astounding results. Sixteen weeks previously his hair had been sparse from his temples all the way back to his crown. And now, sitting in his first Ashley and Martin review, he could see his hair had regained its density and life.

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.

Case Study: Patient Gets Back His Confidence with Ashley and Martin

June 25th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Rafan had been noticing his hair gradually becoming thinner over the span of the last three years. Not yet 30, he felt way too young for this to be happening. His thinning hair was starting to affect his confidence. Looking closely he could see the distance between healthy hair follicles increasing, his scalp clearly visible through his hair. This loss of density was so concerning Rafan decided to look into treatment options.

Turning, as so many people did, to Google to find the solution to his problems, Rafan came across the Ashley and Martin website. Populated with success stories and evidence based medical research, the Ashley and Martin website provided him with all the information he needed about his hair loss and the availability of a treatment that could help. He had seen the Ashley and Martin adverts on TV and this strong media presence gave him the confidence to book a consultation.

Rafan had no medical issues to disclose to his consultant when they sat down together, but he did have a strong genetic family history of hair loss. His consultant felt there was one clear path forward that would intervene in the genetic process causing his hair to thin. The consultant explained to Rafan how the RealGROWTH® treatment would stop the accelerated rate of shedding Rafan was experiencing and regrow his hair by disrupting the formation of the dihydro-testosterone causing the problem and reactivating the dormant roots. Surprised at how easy it all looked, Rafan signed up immediately.

While not overly regular with his clinic visits, Rafan was very diligent with his at home treatment program. This diligence paid off when he came in for his progress check-up after six months. Rafan had already noticed big changes and had been so impressed with his regrowth he already referred two friends to Ashley and Martin. This new hair had given Rafan his confidence back and he is very relieved he took action when he did.

Case Study: Successful Hair Loss Treatment with Ashley and Martin

June 6th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Enod’s career was based on being in the public eye at all times when at work. And as such, his hair was a big part of his persona. Thirty years old and having been losing his hair since he was 25, it took Enod three of those years to make the decision to call a professional hair loss company for help. It was after seeing advertising for Ashley and Martin online that he decided to take the next step towards regaining his hair.

To date, Enod had tried Chinese herbal medicine, over the counter topical solutions and a myriad of vitamins. He had even gone so far as to use a fibrous product that when sprinkled over his head, adhered to his hair making it appear fuller.

Very concerned about his appearance, Enod spoke to his Ashley and Martin consultant about what could be done to remedy the situation. The consultant, after diagnosing his androgenic alopecia as level V on the Norwood scale, took photos of Enod’s hair from every angle. Looking at these on the computer, Enod was shocked that his hair looked so sparse. He had no idea it had gotten this bad.

Eager to get started as soon as possible, Enod made a time to see the clinic hair loss doctor to have a check-up and his medication prescribed. All the non-prescription items Enod would need for his program were given to him before leaving the clinic.

Over the course of eight months, the hair loss Enod and his brother had inherited from his father began to disappear. At first the excessive shedding stopped, then Enod noticed fine, new hairs grow in the balding patches across his scalp. It did not seem to take long for Enod’s hair to look fuller and healthier.

At a regular Progress Review, Enod and his consultant compared photos from his initial consultation to ones taken on the day. The contrast between them was unbelievable; Enod was absolutely ecstatic with the difference eight short months had made to his life.

Case Study: Advanced Hair Loss Treated Successfully by Ashley and Martin

May 9th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Caden had first noticed his hair thinning six months previously. About twelve weeks after he initially became aware of his loss, he started to give consideration to getting assistance to solve the problem. Caden’s friend had been to Ashley and Martin to get treatment for his own hair loss, so when his friend needed help he recommended the people that had helped him.

Looking at Caden’s hair loss, the Ashley and Martin consultant could instantly see that the severity of the loss had been caused by years, not months of damage. In fact, his consultant thought it was likely Caden’s hair had started falling out at a faster than average rate between four and six years ago. His advanced hair loss was placed at III-IV on the Norwood scale, but the good news was that Caden had not left it too late to get treatment.

The consultant explained everything that would be involved in treatment, the medications and therapies that would be used and discussed realistic results that could be achieved. Caden was free to go home and think it over after his free consult, but opted to sign up and start his treatment that same day. He was booked in to see the clinic doctor to have a checkup and his medication prescribed before leaving the clinic.

Every week when Caden returned to the clinic to have his laser therapy treatment he was met with friendly smiles from the staff that made him feel welcome. Before he knew it, it was time to assess his progress on the program by comparing photos taken at his initial consult to ones taken four months later.

Ecstatic with the results he was seeing in the mirror and on the screen in front of him, the 38-year-old was extremely glad he had listened to his friend’s recommendation. The simple, everyday treatment had netted him the results he was looking for and helped him stave of the genetic loss passed down through the generations.

Case Study: Ashley and Martin Client Receives Additional Benefit of Program

April 30th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

It had been three years since James had noticed the first stages of hair loss. He was only 20 years old when the genetic condition passed down to him through a direct family link was discovered. Over the years he had made several enquires to Ashley and Martin, however, he had convinced himself that his hair loss did not concern him greatly enough to do anything about it and had never gone further than submitting an enquiry.

Worried that too much time had passed since first discovering his hair loss for any treatment to be effective, James finally attended an appointment with Ashley and Martin to find out if anything could be done. His consultant gathered background information to inform the results of a scalp examination that would be done in that appointment. When his consultant told him he still had a good base with which to work, he was over the moon. His consultant explained how together with the clinic doctor, they would be able to achieve a positive outcome with the use of prescription medication, herbal supplements and laser therapy. Complemented by specialised hygiene products to keep his scalp a healthy environment for new hairs to grow, James was likely to see real results with Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® program.

After four months of consistent treatment, James was called by the clinic to attend his first Ashley and Martin Progress Review. The photos that were taken in his first appointment were compared alongside the ones taken that day. Neither James or his consultant had to look hard to see the results. Even without seeing the evidence in front of him at his Review, James had noticed the regrowth he had been experiencing.

James told his consultant that he felt so much more confident than when he had first started his RealGROWTH® program. He also let his consultant know he loved using the shampoo and conditioner that had been given to him as they had cleared up his long-standing dandruff problem.

Case Study: Ashley and Martin Client sees Success with Real Growth Program

April 18th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Peter sat in his consultant’s office, thrilled with the results he was seeing on the screen. It had been comforting at the time of his initial consultation to know that his progress on the RealGROWTH® program would be tracked with photographic evidence. But over the course of the first four months of his program, he knew he would not be needing the photos to show him that he was regaining all the hair he had lost over the last eight years. He was already telling people about the changes he was seeing.

Four months earlier Peter had attended an initial appointment with his Ashley and Martin consultant to find out if it was too late for medical intervention. He had always been aware of his thinning, however he had become increasingly self-conscious over the last two years.

Peter’s consultant was upfront with him about the limitations medical intervention may have due to the length and severity of his genetic loss. And while he was not in the business of giving false hope, there was certainly hope to be had. The benefits and drawbacks of the RealGROWTH® program were laid out for Peter so he could make an informed decision that suited his personal circumstances.

Making the decision to commence a RealGROWTH® program was not one that Peter regretted. His only regret was not starting it sooner. The photos he was looking at four months after starting showed him what he had been telling everyone about. While he had not regrown the entirety of his lost hair, his hair had thickened substantially all over. Where his crown had been in danger of balding, he now had good coverage and his temporal recession had reduced beyond what Peter could have hoped for.

Significant Increase in Hair Density for Ashley and Martin Client

November 26th, 2017 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Thomas* had been experiencing hair loss for the last twelve months. He had seen the Ashley and Martin adverts on the TV whilst watching his loveable game of rugby league. Taking note of the phone number he made a call to his local clinic. Now looking at the photos the consultant had taken of his hair he was thankful he had not delayed in picking up the phone.

Right now Thomas was feeling quite alarmed; not only had he felt his hair was thinner but it was visibly thinner. His temples were also receding towards his crown. He had already tried various shampoos’ claiming to thicken hair, nothing had worked. Wanting to nip the problem in the bud before it got any worse he discussed his options with his consultant.

As Thomas had come into the clinic early into his hair loss, the consultant was confident the RealGROWTH® medication program was the best hair loss treatment and would provide outstanding results. Thomas would see his hair density would increase along with regrowth of the hair lost at the temples.

A hair loss treatment plan involving anti-androgens, herbal agents, topical solution and specially formulated scalp cleansing products were put together for Thomas. These targeted medications and therapies would prevent the formation of DHT in his body that was causing the hair loss and encourage strong, healthy hair to grow. Thomas was thrilled with the expected outcome signing up for an eight month program before leaving the clinic that same day.

Thomas attended regular low level laser therapy session at his clinic fortnightly to ensure optimized results. He was also diligent with the use of the medical and other hair loss products. Eight months later Thomas returned to his clinic for a final checkup and photos. Thomas’s concerns about his hair had gone, he was feeling great. His hair had increased in density so much that no one could tell he ever suffered from male pattern hair loss.
