Case Study: Clients treatment plan restores her hair and her confidence at work
Forty year old Lakshmi* had been losing hair for over two years. A busy working mother with two young girls, her thinning hair was starting to affect her self confidence at work. Her job required her to give presentations to a room full of people and to meet with them after the presentation and, as she was so self conscious about her appearance she felt as though this was affecting her on-the-job performance.
Lakshmi’s hair had been thin for as long as she could remember. She had noticed it become even worse after having her children – postpartum shedding can be normal for most people for a short period but it only seemed to exasperate Lakshmi’s problem. Natural remedies were a large part of her cultural belief system and so she had been self-treating the thinning and the hair fall with over the counter herbal remedies and oils for years – none of which had made any difference to the shedding or to the thickness of her hair.
She had disclosed to family members that her confidence at work was suffering and they encouraged her to seek professional help from a hair restoration clinic, instead of using the herbal remedies that were costing money but providing no return on her investment.
She found Ashley and Martin on Google – the oldest and largest medical hair loss company in the Oceania region – and she made an online enquiry.
At her consultation she was diagnosed with female pattern baldness; Ludwig Level III hair loss – (Type III is the final and most extreme classification of female hair loss. In this stage, hair is so thin that it has difficulty camouflaging the scalp which can be seen through the strands). Her husband had gone to the clinic with her for support and they discussed her options with the friendly consultant. She was offered the multifaceted 12 month RealGROWTH® treatment program with low lever laser therapy – specifically tailored to her needs and medically supervised; Lakshmi finally felt like there was a way to tackle the problem that she’d been struggling with for years.
At her first progress review four months later, she could already see the positive results and told her consultant that she wished she had started treatment much earlier instead of wasting her time with ineffective herbal remedies. The combined approach was what she had need all along and the RealGROWTH® program was restoring her hair, her confidence and her job satisfaction.
