Six months into a 12 month treatment plan for his hair loss, Dave* was feeling fantastic about the results he was seeing. He was only 23 years old but had been shedding for 7 years. He knew that there was hair loss in the family (his dad, grandad and cousin were all balding) he just hadn’t realised it would happen to him at such a young age.
A keen footy fan, Dave had grown used to watching the advertisements for Ashley and Martin hair loss clinics in the ad breaks and, indeed, had visited one for advice five years ago. He hadn’t been ready then. He was ready now. Dave knew that the earlier he signed up for the treatment plan, the better the results would be. It was time to go back to the clinic.
Dave was diagnosed with Male Pattern Baldness – Norwood IV hair loss. He was receding around his temples and his vertex was only sparsely covered with thinning strands – and it was getting worse. The consultant explained that men typically lose their hair in one of several common patterns and the ‘Norwood Scale’ was the measurement most commonly used by doctors when discussing and diagnosing male pattern baldness. The scale provides a reference point to diagnose the extent of the baldness and measure the efficacy of treatment. At stage four, Dave’s hair fall was significant, but not irreversible. He was young and fit and his consultant felt very confident that the 12 month RealGROWTH® treatment plan would deliver the results that Dave was hoping for.
His consultant was right…the treatment plan was delivering the clinically proven results that he had expected but, more than that, it was also delivering confidence and reassurance to a young man who had been concerned about his appearance and worried about going bald. Dave felt fantastic.
