Case Study: Client acts on a referral from his barber…and refers another on to regrowth success

January 6th, 2021 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Simon* was thinning on top. In the past year, he had noticed a significant decrease in hair density on his crown and towards his frontal hairline – his barber had also noticed the shedding. As it turned out, Simon’s barber was being treated at an Ashley and Martin clinic for his own hair loss and recommended that Simon contact the hair loss specialists. Simon trusted his barber immensely and booked his free consultation.

At their first meeting, Simon chatted to his consultant about his family history of hair loss. Both his brothers and his father had suffered varying degrees of hair loss and, at 33 years of age, Simon was hoping to buck the trend.

On examination, his consultant placed his hair loss at a level III Vertex on the Norwood Hair Loss Scale and advised Simon that he should get great results on the twelve month RealGROWTH® medical treatment program which, if adopted early enough, had a 98 per cent success rate – he signed up on the same day.

Just four months into his treatment program, Simon could see results. His widening parting had closed over and he was regrowing a dense covering of thick, healthy hair.

Word of mouth is a powerful recommendation and Simon was very pleased that his  barber had referred him to Ashley and Martin – he  paid that forward with a referral of his own. His friend was suffering similar hair loss and Simon didn’t hesitate in referring him to the clinic the way his barber had done…he knew he would achieve great results.

Case study: Client’s barber amazed by ‘unexpected’ results

October 28th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

In the last three years, Ethan had noticed a significant change in the density of his hair, particularly around his frontal hairline and also on his crown. He had considered treatment but wasn’t sure if there was much point; the people around him seemed to be of the opinion that hair loss treatments were a waste of time and money. Even his barber was adamant that the only way to fix the problem would be to get a hair transplant…and so Ethan held off and his hair continued to thin.

After finding Ashley and Martin online and reading about the proven medical regrowth  program Ethan decided to forget about the naysayers and made a call to the clinic. On examination of Ethan’s receding frontal hair line and the continued thinning up to the crown, the consultant diagnosed him with male pattern baldness, Norwood level III vertex. The friendly consultant advised him that he was the perfect candidate for the RealGROWTH® medical treatment program which had a 98 per cent success rate if adopted early enough.

With his barbers negative advice still ringing in his ears, Ethan went away to consider his options. The science made sense to him but he was still quite sceptical. Two week later he returned to commence the treatment…and he was so very glad that he did.

Four months into his home-based treatment plan, Ethan  went back to the clinic for his progress assessment. His results were amazing; the recession in his temporal region was visibly reduced, his hair was growing back over his crown, and the overall density was greatly improved. Extremely satisfied with the results so far, Ethan told his consultant he had also been surprised by just how easy the routine to treat his own hair at home was – certainly much easier than planning an overseas trip for a hair transplant!

Before he left the clinic to continue on his hair growth journey, Ethan giggled and told his consultant that his barber – the one who had said hair loss treatments won’t work – was now wanting to visit Ashley and Martin himself to see if they could help him;  not such a waste of time or money after all!

Case study: Successful solutions for clients near and far

September 15th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Living in the country, it’s not always easy or convenient to get into towns or cities, as was the case for Justin*. He had his first consultation at an Ashley and Martin hair loss clinic five years ago but didn’t take any action. His continuing hair loss prompted him to revisit the clinic where his consultant recommended that Justin signed up to the RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program. This multi-faceted program would provide intervention in the process that had contributed to his ongoing hair loss over the last five years, while encouraging and protecting new growth.

The RealGROWTH® program also allowed for Justin to be  given a treatment regime that meant he could treat his hair successfully from home…a huge benefit when the hair loss clinic is a two hour drive away.

Justin drove back to the clinic four months later for his scheduled review and check-up. He had diligently stuck to his home regime and could not have been happier with the result. His hair had thickened up beyond anything he had anticipated…he only wished that he had done it years ago.

Case Study: Young Client Knows Exactly Who To Contact When He Reaches His Turning Point

May 19th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

When 19-year-old Kobe* reached his turning point, he knew who to contact. Having seen Ashley and Martin’s medical hair loss treatment being talked about by people just like him on TV and online, he found the online contact form on the Ashley and Martin website and requested a call from his nearest hair loss clinic.

Kobe had started rapidly losing hair at just 18 years old and in the space of twelve months, he had been left with a sparse covering across his scalp and a deep temporal recession. His consultant had diagnosed him with Norwood stage III androgenic alopecia after a scalp examination and review of his family and relevant medical history. Young, fit, and healthy, the balding that was causing him concern about his appearance had been inherited from his father. The consultant took the time to make sure Kobe understood all aspects of the proposed RealGROWTH® medical hair loss treatment program and encouraged him to ask any questions he could think of. Needing time to think things over, after he had gotten all the information he needed to make an informed decision, Kobe went home to decide if he was ready to go bald.

It did not take Kobe long to realise he did not want to follow in his father’s footsteps so early by going bald before the age of 25. He called the clinic back a week after his initial appointment to make an appointment and begin treating his hair.

Amazed at the dramatic changes that took place in the first sixteen weeks of his treatment, Kobe was thrilled he had decided to take action when he did. Looking at his progress photos with his hair loss consultant, it was like he had never started balding in the first place. The recession in his temples had disappeared and his hair was thick, dense, and healthy all over. He had chosen Ashley and Martin because of the medical nature of the treatment, and now he knew he had been right. Medical hair loss treatment had been the right option for him to regrow hair and keep it.

Case Study: Client Receives Own Hair Regrowth After Husband Uses RealGROWTH

April 22nd, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Seventy-four-year-old Juliette* decided it was her turn. Her husband had turned to Ashley and Martin when he had been loosing hair over ten years ago and now, five years after she had first noticed her hair own loss, Juliette had gotten up the courage to attend her own initial consultation. After booking and cancelling multiple appointments through a combination of scepticism and nervousness, Juliette decided to finally discuss the increasingly large patches of hair loss she had developed on her crown.

Four years after she had first thought about seeking treatment, Juliette’s hair loss consultant worked with her to conduct a scalp examination and determine the most effective course of action. Characterised by centrifugal loss over the top of the scalp, Juliette’s Ludwig grade III hair loss displayed patches of scalp with complete loss. Unlike her husband’s former hair loss, however, Juliette’s frontotemporal hair line had not been affected. Also different to her husband’s hair loss, was the recommended treatment plan. Explaining to Juliette how targeted nutritional supplements, a specialised scalp hygiene routine, and regular in-home Low Level Laser Therapy treatments would work to slow her shedding to a normal rate and regrow hair where she had lost it, the consultant was confident Juliette would see positive results. She, however, wanted to think it over some more.

Having come to Ashley and Martin both because her husband had recommended the treatment and because the clinic offered medical hair loss solutions, Juliette had not tried any over the counter remedies before meeting with her consultant. However, with all the information the consultant had given her the previous day at her appointment, she felt reassured enough in the treatment to move forward with his recommended course of action. Calling the clinic, Juliette engaged the support she needed to reverse hair loss and regrow hair.

Slightly surprised at how well her treatment had worked, when Juliette returned to see her consultant for a progress review four months after her initial appointment, was she equally happy and disappointed looking at the results. Pleased that the treatment had been so easy and produced such wonderful results, Juliette was disappointed she had cancelled so many appointments and wasted time starting her hair loss treatment.

Case Study: Family Sees the Improvements After Just Twelve Weeks

February 5th, 2020 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Three months into treatment, Drew’s* family started to see the results of his RealGROWTH® program and finally began to show support for his decision to undertake medical hair loss treatment. Initially sceptical, it took more than good reviews and success statistics to convince them that the treatment would work. They needed proof. And sixteen weeks after Drew started his program, they had it. New hair was filling in the widening part line that radiated back from his left temporal recession and Drew’s hair was thicker and healthier than it had been in over a year.

Coming to Ashley and Martin, Drew had hoped to find a way to regrow hair to boost his confidence when entering the job market after Uni. Losing his hair as a 20 year old Uni student was concerning and he hoped something could be done to stop him losing his hair like his father had. The consultant had reassured him that he was not alone in feeling this way, and he had helped many young men who were not ready to go bald regrow their own hair. Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® medical hair regrowth program was designed to slow his hair loss to a natural rate and reactivate dormant follicles in order to regrow his hair and stop any more from falling out. Wanting to make a considered decision, Drew had gone away to think it over and returned two weeks later to enrol on a treatment program. From there, the rest had been history.

Ecstatic about the quick and impressive results he was seeing, it was hard to believe that just eighteen weeks previously he had been receiving a diagnosis of male pattern baldness at a level III vertex. And he was glad his family could finally see the reason he had chosen to go with a trusted medical clinic to resolve his hair loss rather than just accept baldness or use an unreliable off the shelf remedy.

Case Study: Older Brother Starts Treatment After Seeing Younger Brother Beat Genetic Hair Loss

November 19th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Blond hair limp and thin, Dave* did not have the hair he had expected at nineteen years old. Suffering from a rapid, aggressive, early onset of androgenic alopecia, Dave’s self esteem had hit rock bottom. Not long out of high school and still studying full time, Dave’s parents were concerned for their son. Choosing Ashley and Martin due to the evidence based medical nature of the clinic, Dave and his mother attended a free consultation after hearing about the clinic on the TV and online.

With his mother along for support, Dave met with a hair loss consultant to find out if it would be possible to regrow hair and reverse the genetic problem his father and brother also suffered from. For him, the decline in the quality and quantity of his hair had started at seventeen years old and was already at a level III vertex on the Norwood hair loss scale. He knew he did not have long before it was too late to treat his hair. Wanting what was best for her son, Dave’s mother encouraged him to start treatment straight away.

After two years of feeling continuously stressed and self-conscious about his hair, Dave could hardly believe the turn around in just four months. In the sixteen weeks he had been adhering to his RealGROWTH® treatment routine, his hair had increased in density beyond what he could have hoped for. Before he had started treatment, his hair had been so thin that his scalp had been completely visible; but now his hair was so thick and dense that his scalp could only be seen at his part line, just like so many other young men his age.

The results of Dave’s treatment had been so impressive that his old brother had booked his own free consultation for the same day as Dave’s first Ashley and Martin Review. Keen to regrow his hair and obtain the same great outcome his little brother had, he signed up to start his own RealGROWTH® medical hair loss program straight away.

Case Study: RealGROWTH Improves Failing Hair Transplant Results

October 30th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Zane* was devastated. Two years ago he had undergone a hair transplant and now here he was seeking help from another hair loss specialist. Despite his transplant being successful, he had continued to lose his hair and had no idea why this was still happening. A barber by trade, Zane was extremely conscious of his hair and the effect a good hair cut could have on the way people felt about themselves and were perceived by others.

The Ashley and Martin consultant took the time to sit with him and explain the biological process that was causing his hair loss. The hair Zane had had transplanted into the areas most affected by his hair loss were no exception to this process. Without medical intervention in his body’s production of 5α-reductase Zane’s hair, transplanted or not, would continue to suffer from the effects of androgenic alopecia.

The consultant went on to explain that another expensive transplant would only end up the same way. The most effective way for Zane to keep his hair was to treat his hair with a medical hair regrowth plan first. Ashley and Martin’s RealGROWTH® program was a multifaceted approach that would address the 5α-reductase production, slowing the hair fall to a natural rate, reactivate dormant hair follicles to promote thicker strands of hair to grow and provide a healthy environment for new hair growth. And if he still wanted a hair transplant after he had addressed the root cause of his hair loss and regrown as much hair as possible medically, the consultant would be able to help him do this and keep the hair that was transplanted long term.

Zane was thrilled to find someone who had taken the time to ensure his new hair would be something he was able to sustain rather than pay a lot of money for only be back in the same position two years later. He signed up for treatment and met with the clinic’s on-site doctor to have his prescriptions written.

After four months of treatment, Zane was shocked and amazed at the difference in his hair. The treatment was quick, easy, affordable and non-invasive but had provided him with a thicker head of hair than he had seen in years. And there was still more regrowth to come.

Case Study: Client Happily Surprised By Gradual Hair Regrowth

September 16th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

When Darius* started looking for a reputable hair loss company, he scoured the internet for information. Reading copious numbers of reviews from other people who had undergone treatment with Ashley and Martin and researching medical hair loss treatment, Darius came to the conclusion that Ashley and Martin were a trustworthy company. Wanting to look back on photos of himself with his children and have hair in those precious memories, the young father contacted Ashley and Martin online to book a free appointment.

With this wife along for support, Darius met with a consultant to discuss if he was suitable for medical hair loss treatment and the likely results he might obtain. Learning Darius was active and in good health, a scalp examination confirmed he was suffering from the same genetic hair loss as his Father and Uncles. Expanding on the knowledge Darius had already gained in his research, the consultant explained which products would be used in treating his Norwood III vertex loss and what each one of them would do.

In addition to the pharmaceutical and herbal elements of the program, Darius opted to do this laser therapy at home instead of coming into the clinic. A Laser Plus Pro home treatment device was added to his treatment program and Darius was booked in to see the clinic hair loss doctor immediately.

It was five months before Darius returned to the clinic after enrolling on his RealGROWTH® program. And he was unsure if his program had helped him regrow hair at this point. It had taken a year and a half of damage from male pattern baldness to leave him with the deep recession and sparse hair that had been concerning him. But he had only been doing treatment for five months.

As soon as his consultant put up photos of his hair taken that day and compared them to ones taken in Darius’s initial appointment, he was happily surprised. The new growth had happened so subtly that he had not realised how much thicker his hair had become.

Case Study: Staff Thrilled to See Confidence Grow In Young Client.

August 14th, 2019 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies

Young and low on confidence, Clint* brought his father along to his first Ashley and Martin appointment. His self-esteem had hit rock bottom and the 24-year-old did not even have the faith in himself to speak to someone about his hair loss alone. Clint needed help and he needed it now.

Hair ravaged by two years of androgenic alopecia, Clint and his father were unsure if Clint was the first of his family to suffer with the condition better known as male pattern baldness. They could not recall this happening to anyone else. Sadly for Clint, he was alone in the fact that in just two short years he had gone from having a full head of hair to the Norwood IV loss his consultant was looking at. The consultant knew that if Clint did not act quickly, he would need to resign himself to the fact it would be too late to regrow hair for him.

With hope and his father’s support, Clint signed up and started his medical hair loss treatment that day.

At first, Clint and his family had felt comfortable choosing Ashley and Martin as it was both a medical centre and a trusted name in hair loss treatment. But once both he and his father had experienced the service and treatment process firsthand, Clint tentatively started to attend his appointments alone. Seeing his hair slowly growing back was building Clint’s confidence and as his self-assurance grew Clint began to come out of his shell. The clinic staff were thrilled at seeing the new, more outgoing Clint walk through their doors.

Clint knew it would take time to reverse the damage his aggressive alopecia had done. But he felt thrilled that he had already gotten the excess shedding under control and many of his dormant hair follicles had re-entered their growth phase.

With new growth still to come as he continued his treatment, the sporty young man would soon feel as confident off the field as on.
