Ten years of gradual hair loss had sort of slipped by. Thomas* was aware that his hair fall was getting worse, particularly on his crown, but had only recently become more concerned about it because it was affecting his appearance.
Thomas found a local Ashley and Martin clinic after some online research and booked a free consultation. He spoke openly to the consultant about his expectations. At 53 years old he was concerned that he may have left any sort of procedure or treatment too late. His job as a nurse could sometimes be stressful and he knew that he was predisposed to baldness as his brother also carried the same family trait of hair loss. He had tried to deal with the shedding himself by using over the counter topical medications but the lack of results had prompted him to finally contact a hair restoration specialist.
At the appointment, Thomas’ consultant performed a scalp examination and checked that there were no underling medical conditions that may be impacting on the growth cycle of his hair. He diagnosed Thomas with Male Pattern Baldness – level III vertex on the Norwood scale – and recommended he commence with the Ashley and Martin 12 month RealGROWTH® program to achieve the best results.
This home based treatment plan could be easily implemented and was clinically proven to stop the excessive shedding so that Thomas could start to regrow his own hair. Thomas was happy to begin treatment immediately.
After sixteen weeks on the RealGROWTH® program, Thomas went back to the clinic for his first progress review. He could already start to see the difference in the review photos and, indeed, had felt the difference every time he touched his hair. Although the bald patches were still there, there had been a shift in the quality of the hair that he was regrowing. It was much thicker and the individual strands were robust and strong – not wispy and thin as they had been, just four months earlier. He felt confident that this regrowth would continue to cover over the thinner patches and was looking forward to seeing the next set of images at his next clinic review.
