Case Study: Drastic Improvement Gained by Acting Quickly

May 6th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Nick* knew he was genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness. Most of the men on his mother’s side of the family were either bald or balding. This dominant hair loss gene led Nick to be genuinely concerned about the way his rapid hair loss was changing his appearance. After all, he could see his future at any family gathering.

By 26-years-old Nick had reached a point where he needed to discuss his concerns with a professional. He called his local Ashley and Martin clinic for a little more information about the options available to him and booked a free consultation to discuss treatment in greater detail.

The consultant, upon examination, could see Nick had lost a significant amount of density with the most affected areas being his frontal hair line and crown. A non-smoker and non-drinker, Nick led an active lifestyle and was very healthy. With everything the consultant had learned about Nick, he knew great results could be achieved with a RealGROWTH® medical hair loss treatment program. But it was imperative Nick treat his hair quickly or risk losing more.

Initially happy to simply retain the coverage he had, Nick was elated to hear that hair regrowth was expected with treatment, not just a bonus. He asked several questions about the safety and efficacy of the pharmaceutical components of the treatment program, and with the assurance that came from speaking to the clinic doctor, Nick enrolled on a RealGROWTH® program.

Throughout the process, improvements in Nick’s hair were tracked by taking photos and comparing them next to each other. This transparent process was not only reassuring, it was exciting. Sixteen weeks into treatment, Nick could see his hair had doubled in density. This drastic improvement in what had started out as aggressively progressing Norwood level III vertex hair loss had Nick singing the praises of Ashley and Martin. He told his consultant he would recommend the treatment to any of his friends who were concerned about their own thinning hair.

Case Study: Mother and Son Both Find Success and Confidence with Ashley and Martin

April 3rd, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Ben* was becoming increasingly concerned about his appearance. For the past year, the 24-year-old student had seen his hair rapidly disappear. Six months into this aggressive phase of shedding, Ben knew he had to do something. He tried using a topical solution he found at the chemist, but soon realised it was not delivering the results it promised.

Knowing Ashley and Martin was a trusted name in the hair loss industry, Ben contacted his local clinic online. The clinic hours accommodated his busy life well and he booked a free consultation at a time that fit with his study schedule.

Based on the pattern and degree of loss the consultant saw upon examination of Ben’s scalp, together with his family history of hair loss, Ben was diagnosed with Male Pattern Hair Loss, Norwood III Vertex. Young and healthy, Ben was an excellent candidate for the RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program. A simple, multi-faceted home treatment routine together with regular laser therapy in the clinic would intervene in the biological process leading to his increased shedding and dormant hair follicles and promoted new, healthy growth. Excited to have found a hair loss treatment that worked, Ben signed straight up.

In just a few short weeks, the excess shedding slowed and gradually came to a halt. Not long after, Ben began to see fine, new hair starting to grow in areas that had once been bereft of covering.

Over time, Ben started styling and dying his hair instead of being self-conscious and trying to avoid drawing attention to it. It felt great to have the option to make these decisions rather than having them taken away from him.

Overjoyed with the overwhelming regrowth that happened in the first six months of his program, Ben suggested his mother attend a free consultation of her own. Now mother and son are both have their own success stories and face the world with their heads held high.

Case Study: Ashley and Martin Patient Achieves Successful Hair Regrowth with Laser Therapy Treatment

February 12th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Saddled with a family history of hair loss, Janet had tried using shampoos, conditioners and vitamins that all promised to regrow her worryingly thin hair. Over the past six years, Janet had watched her hair go from healthy to heart-breaking. Knowing how her thin, lifeless hair was making her feel, a family member suggested she look to Ashley and Martin for help. By this time Janet had been thinking about treatment for twelve months; she was ready to try something that might bring her the results the remedies she had already tried promised, but failed to deliver.

After contacting Ashley and Martin online, 53-year-old Janet met with a Hair Loss Consultant. She spoke with him about her family history of hair loss and disclosed the excessive stress that came with being a mother recently. Her consultant discussed with her how stress, as well as genetics, could impact the natural growth cycle of the hair forcing it into a dormant phase. A scalp examination revealed that amongst her diffuse hair, she still had follicles with the capacity to re-enter the growth phase again.

The consultant recommended Janet use a intervention of Low Level Laser Therapy that had been proven to be effective in cases such as her own. It was a simple treatment that could be done at home without changing her daily routine.

When it came time for Janet and her consultant to take progress photos and assess the efficacy of her program to date, Janet was overwhelmed with what she saw in front of her. Far from the unhealthy strands that lay lifeless against her scalp just four months previously, Janet was almost in tears looking at the fuller, healthier hair she had regrown in just sixteen weeks. Excited to go and share her wonderful news, Janet rushed out of the office with a beaming smile across her face.

Case Study: Complete Confidence Leads to Outstanding Results

January 16th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

It was Natalie’s* partner who first used the Ashley and Martin RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program. He had suffered from Alopecia Areata and RealGROWTH® had given him spectacular results. When Natalie herself began to consider treating the loss of density in her hair, she immediately thought of Ashley and Martin.

By the time Natalie called to book her own free consultation at Ashley and Martin, she had been losing her hair for almost three years. Sitting across from her consultant, Natalie went through the information she had given on the questionnaire she had been handed upon arrival. With a thorough understanding of the factors that may be impacting Natalie’s hair, a scalp examination was performed. Although she had no known family history of hair loss, there were also no pre-existing medical conditions that cause hair to thin, based on the pattern of loss he was seeing the consultant diagnosed her with Androgenic Alopecia.

Natalie demonstrated a sound understanding of the program having watch her partner perform his nightly routine, however the consultant still made sure to cover all aspects of the program. Not only were there differences in the way male and female hair loss were treated, but he needed to be sure his client entered into treatment with a clear picture of what she was undertaking.

Natalie’s treatment differed to her partner’s as she would use a nutritional supplement instead of herbal, a different oral medication and instead of the frequent laser therapy visits at the clinic, she would have a home laser device and only attend therapy at the clinic once a month. Having already made up her mind to commence treatment before attending her visit, Natalie signed up immediately. She was booked to see the clinic hair loss doctor for blood tests and once the results were back and it had been confirmed there were no underlying medical issues to be considered, her medication was prescribed.

It was unsurprising to Natalie that her hair stopped thinning and she gained substantial regrowth using her RealGROWTH® program. She had come into her initial appointment with complete confidence that her treatment would work for her. With her own results to show people, Natalie would recommend Ashley and Martin to any of her friends if there were to go through the same thing as her.

Case Study: Comments From Amazed Family and Friends Give Client Confidence

November 26th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Ellen* was 42 years old when she first made the decision to visit Ashley and Martin. She had been losing hair at an accelerated rate for the past eighteen months and, having heard about Ashley and Martin from the television advertisements, thought she had nothing to lose by attending a free consultation.

Booking an appointment at a time that suited her was easy due to the clinic’s convenient hours. Once there, she was asked to fill in a form that would collect important information regarding her health as well as reasons for wanting treatment. Upon meeting her consultant, they discussed the information given on her intake form and a scalp examination was conducted. The results of this examination showed the pattern of hair loss Ellen was experiencing was characterised by a loss of density. This common pattern of loss indicated Ellen’s underlying problem was the genetic trait, androgenic alopecia. She had indicated on her questionnaire that her main areas of concern were twofold. She was concerned not only for her hair loss but was also suffering from a scalp irritation that caused her to itch.

As per Ashley and Martin protocol, Ellen was booked in to see the clinic hair loss doctor for blood tests to rule out the possibility of an underlying medical condition that may be causing her hair loss. Rather than making a commitment before these results were in, Ellen held off on deciding for the time being.

A month later, Ellen was ready to commence her treatment. It had been a few weeks since she had been given the all clear by the doctor and, happy to know her hair loss was not medically induced, she returned to Ashley and Martin.

It was not long before her laser cap and specially formulated nutrient tablets began to show results. In fact, by the time she returned for her four month Ashley and Martin review, her confidence in the treatment program skyrocketed as her progress photos showed an overwhelming amount of regrowth. And it was not just her initial photos contrasted against the ones taken at her review that gave her confidence, it was comments from amazed family and friends that confirmed the treatment was working wonderfully well for her.

Case Study: Regrowth So Impressive Client Snapchats From Ashley and Martin Office

November 5th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Scott was so thrilled with the early results of his RealGROWTH® program that in the middle of his first progress review, he took time out to Snapchat the before and after pictures and text them to his father. He was so glad that he had come on board with Ashley and Martin that you could not have removed the smile from his face if you tried. His hair was so thick and healthy that he could hardly believe he was only sixteen weeks into his treatment program.

It was a love for being outdoors and in the water lead Scott to Ashley and Martin’s door initially. He was starting to get a sun burn on his scalp while out enjoying his favourite past times and feeling a little concerned about how the hair loss was changing the way he looked. His family were encouraging him to act on his desire to seek treatment and he already had a friend who visited Ashley and Martin for treatment. With this support, 25-year-old Scott had booked an appointment to discuss how Ashley and Martin could help him.

After discussing the expected outcomes Scott was hoping for by seeking assistance from Ashley and Martin, the consultant performed a scalp examination. Scott’s blond hair had been slowly getting thinner over the course of two years and now his Norwood III vertex loss had decimated density of his hair all over, however it was predominately noticeable through the temples and crown. In fact, the thinning in his temples was so advanced, it appeared to extend right back to his balding crown.

Not ready to go the same way as his father so early in life, Scott took up the recommended treatment plan and the rest was history. The treatment routine fit easily into his active lifestyle and within weeks the excessive shedding had slowed to a healthy rate that was closely followed by new, healthy hair growth.

Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® medical treatment program had delivered more than Scott could have possibly hoped for.

Case Study: Hair Grows Back Darker and Healthier

September 5th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Thirty-three years old and six months into his battle with hair loss, Adam was determined to act on it straight away. He had watched his father lose his hair and had made the decision that he was not prepared to go down the same path. The effect the loss was having, and would continue to have, on his appearance was concerning Adam greatly and he wanted to keep his hair as long as possible. He immediately called Ashley and Martin, not wanting to waste a single moment before getting treatment. Adam knew that the earlier he began treatment, the better his results would be.

At his first appointment, Adam’s consultant took photos of his hair from several angles in order to track the success of his treatment program. Adam’s Norwood III loss would best be treated with a RealGROWTH® medical program and he was booked in to see the clinic doctor to have a check-up and his medication prescribed. Before he left the clinic he was provided with all the non-prescription items of his program and booked in for the first of his monthly laser therapy treatments.

After four months of using his RealGROWTH® program, Adam was due for his progress review. Together, Adam and his consultant compared the photos that had been taken at his first appointment with ones that had been taken moments before. And at this early stage, Adam was extremely happy with what he was seeing. Adam’s wavy, sundrenched hair had not only increased in density, but was growing back darker and healthier. The small, white flakes that were a result of his psoriasis were now nowhere to be seen. Since starting on his medical hair regrowth program, Adam had not missed a single day of treatment and the results clearly showed his commitment. He was not only happy with his results, but with Ashley and Martin and the treatment program he had undergone.

Case Study: Treatment Options Available for Senior Ashley and Martin Patient

August 6th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Sixty-six year old retiree, Luke, wanted to gain more hair coverage over his scalp. Over a decade after this hair began to disappear, Luke walked into an Ashley and Martin clinic to find out more about the process of regaining his hair. He had seen adverts on the television and was curious to find out more. Until recently the thought of treatment had not even crossed his mind, but lately his interest had been piqued. His hair loss had now progressed to an advanced stage and he was not enjoying the years it added to his looks.

The consultant he met with did an honest assessment of Luke’s hair. A combination of advancing age and genetics were at play, causing Luke’s hair to enter a dormant, telogen phase. The consultant told Luke that the most effective method of treating his hair would be a combination of topical solution, herbal supplements and regular laser therapy. There were limitations to the treatment however. Due to Luke’s age, he was unable to take anti-androgenic medication that would be a part of a younger man’s treatment. And the advanced stage of Luke’s loss meant some of his follicles had already suffered a lack of nourishment and died. Understanding a realistic picture of the expected outcome, Luke signed up to treat his Norwood Va loss.

It was with a smile that Luke assessed the difference in his hair four months after he started treating his hair. It was not perfect, but it was a great deal better than when he had first sat down with his consultant. His regular visits to the clinic for laser therapy together with his adherence to his treatment routine at home had given him back enough of his hair that he now did not need to use the length in his hair to give the illusion of coverage.

Case Study: Successful Treatment of Rapid Hair Loss Through Ashley and Martin

June 25th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

With the full support of his wife and family, Daniel called Ashley and Martin to help him with the rapid deterioration of his hair. Just six months previously, Daniel had sported a full, healthy head of hair. By the time his consultant examined him, his hair was thin, limp and sparsely populated. With a hastily retreating hairline, deeply receding temples and a thinning crown Daniel was extremely concerned about how much his appearance had aged in half a year. At 45 he was not yet ready to have the hair of an old man.

The Norwood IIIa androgenic alopecia Daniel was suffering from had been inherited from his father. A legacy he would have prefered not to inherit. For eight weeks he had been turning the idea of seeking help over in his head, eventually coming to the decision to contact Ashley and Martin having seen the advertising on television.

The consultant that met with him discussed the most effective treatment solutions to his hair loss and took time to answer any questions that Daniel had about the process and efficacy of the program. And after hearing about the help available to him, Daniel did not want to wait a second longer. He enrolled for treatment immediately and booked the first available appointment with the clinic doctor.

After a check-up revealed Daniel to be in good health, the pharmaceutical components of the RealGROWTH program were prescribed to be taken in conjunction with herbal supplements and a specialised scalp cleansing product. To support the work of these interventions, low level laser therapy would be provided at the clinic on a regular basis.

The early results of his program could not have made Daniel happier. He was over the moon with the amount of hair he had regrown in a short amount of time. His hair was full of body and life, his hair line stronger than he had seen it in a long time and his dark hair as thick as it once had been before. It was as if the six months prior to coming to Ashley and Martin had never happened.

Case Study: Great Results From Ashley and Martin Treatment Program

June 6th, 2018 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

The stress of the birth of her first child had impacted Glenda’s hair growth cycle two years ago. And to date, it had not returned to normal. Her hair, especially through the temporal region, had become thin and lifeless. Her part line was wide and crown sparse. The state of her hair bothered Glenda and she started talking to a friend about it. Her friend knew of Ashley and Martin and suggested she give us a call to find out if anything could be done. After finding the Ashley and Martin website online, Glenda saw the internet contact form and submitted an enquiry.

Trying to combat the problem from its onset, Glenda had tried taking a nutritional supplement to bring life back to her hair, but to no avail. Discussing it with her consultant, she confided that her mother suffered from hair loss as well. The 33 year old did not want her hair loss to be long term like her mother’s and was interested to hear how the RealGROWTH® program could assist. The consultant laid out the combination of interventions that would be used under the clinic doctor’s care and invited Glenda to clarify anything she was unsure of.

Glenda’s decision to enroll on her RealGROWTH® program straight away paid off. Four months later she was back in the office for her first Ashley and Martin Progress Review and happy to see that her program was working. The photographic evidence in front of her showed that her hair had increased in density all over and looked much more healthy. Her consultant was especially pleased to see the dramatic improvement in her temporal region; where skin had been easily visible before there was new, healthy hair and Glenda’s part line had returned to its pre-stressor state. Thanks to Ashley and Martin, Glenda had avoided her mother’s long term hair loss problem.
