Chris* was incredibly self-conscious about his appearance because of his advanced hair loss. At one point, he had tried using an over the counter product that promoted itself a way for him to take control of his hair loss. But far from delivering on its promises, it only caused his loss to become worse. Thirty-four years old with the hair line of a man twice his age, Chris called Ashley and Martin.
Attending his free consultation with his partner, Chris disclosed that he had been losing his hair for almost five years. Further information gathering found that Chris’ father had also lost his hair and that although in good health generally, he led a busy, stressful lifestyle. Confirming the diagnosis of male pattern hair loss with a scalp examination, Chris’ hair loss was placed at a level IV on the Norwood scale.
Outlining the medical hair loss treatment program she would recommend to slow his loss to a natural rate and promote new hair growth, the consultant also suggested he rent a laser therapy device to give his program the best chance of success. Living as far as he did from the clinic, the consultant knew the inconvenience it would cause to come in to the clinic for treatment. Taking all of this on board, Chris felt he would like to discuss the treatment privately with his wife before committing to the program.
Shortly after, he contacted the clinic and began his program. Initially experiencing a little stinging when applying his RealGROWTH® solution, this disappeared quickly, and he found the program easy and quick to adhere to. As his hair grew back, people began to notice. And far from the way he had previously felt about his appearance when he was around other people, now Chris felt pleased when people commented on his hair. It wasn’t just his partner who had noticed his hair improving, his family were commenting on how good it was looking as well. With the positive feedback, Chris’ confidence began to grow and at his first Ashley and Martin Review four months into his treatment, he was extremely happy with the results he was seeing.
