Case Study: Ashley and Martin Helps Fight Genetic Thinning

March 17th, 2016 by Ashley and Martin Case Studies in Hair Loss Blog Comments Off on Case Study: Ashley and Martin Helps Fight Genetic Thinning

Ian* wasn’t exactly sure how long he had been losing his hair.  He thought it had been about a year or two since he had first noticed it becoming thinner and falling out on his pillow at night.  In the time it had been shedding he had noticed his part become wider, a patch on his crown become thinner and his frontal hair line move back especially at his part.

Like himself and his father, Ian’s younger brother was also beginning to lose his hair.  With this genetic factor at play he decided to go online to have a look at what options were available to him.  While on Ashley and Martin’s website he decided to submit an internet enquiry and a consultant called him back from his clinic of choice.

The 28 year old told his consultant he had been thinking about getting treatment for almost a year as he was concerned about the way his hair loss changing his appearance.  The pattern of hair loss together with the close family members who had lost their hair and a lack of contributing medical or dietary factors led the consultant to a diagnosis of Male Pattern Hair Loss, Norwood IV.

After discussing exactly what would be involved in undergoing medical treatment for his condition, Ian was happy to enrol on a RealGROWTH® program immediately.  He was booked in to see Ashley and Martin’s in-clinic doctor and offered a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) treatment before he left the clinic.

Ian attended regular LLLT appointments and took his medication as directed by the prescribing doctor. While in the clinic for a laser treatment, staff reminded him he was due for a progress check-up with his consultant and made an appointment to see his consultant next time he was in the clinic for LLLT.

He had already noticed the hair on the crown of his head getting thicker and knew his part was no longer wider than it should be.  The progress photos taken at his check-up highlighted just how much new hair had grown in his part at the front.    It had only been sixteen weeks and Ian was very happy with his decision to come to Ashley and Martin.
