Neil* had originally come to Ashley and Martin to support his mother in a consultation for her own hair loss needs. He had suffered from hair loss himself since the age of sixteen and the information he heard while at his mother’s appointment had piqued his interest. The following fortnight after his mother’s appointment, Neil called Ashley and Martin for himself.
He was now 21 years old and already suffering from Norwood stage III vertex loss. His temporal region had receded most of the way back to his crown and his hair had become sparse all over. Such advanced hair loss while he was supposed to be in his prime had shaken Neil’s confidence. His mother and both grandparents suffered from varying degrees of hair loss, but it had still been a shock to watch his own hair disappear so early. With the intention of signing up for treatment himself, Neil attended an appointment of his own.
He began treating his hair with medical interventions different to those that his mother had been prescribed, however one thing their treatment had in common was the recommendation of laser therapy. Not wanting to come in to the hair loss clinic to attend laser therapy appointments, Neil purchased a laser cap three months after starting his RealGROWTH® program. This in-home low level laser therapy device was something he could share with his mother so the both of them could boost the results they were getting from their medication programs. People had already begun commenting on his hair and Neil was keen to give his treatment the best chance possible.
It had felt good to receive complements from colleagues who had noticed the turnaround in his formerly diminishing hair. At his four month Ashley and Martin Review Neil was feeling optimistic and enthusiastic about the results he had seen take place already. He assessed the progress photos taken for him to compare his current hair growth to the level of loss he was experiencing when he first came in with his consultant. The vast changes he was seeing between his first and second set of photos confirmed what his colleagues had been saying. The positive feedback Neil had received had restored his confidence and he had found the courage to pursue a more rewarding career.
