Ashley and Martin Treatment Halts Shedding and Improves Hair Quality

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Enough was enough for Nicola*, if her hair did not stop falling out soon she was afraid at 34 she wouldn’t have anything left. Nicola’s hair had gone through frequent shedding phases since she stopped taking the contraceptive pill two years ago but over the last four to five months the shedding had become excessive, the area in her fringe was becoming noticeably sparse with the scalp showing. Nicola’s mother had always had thin hair but there was no evidence of genetic hair loss running through the family.

Nicola researched female hair loss on the Internet and was drawn to the successful journeys of other female Ashley and Martin patients. Nicola realized she was not alone; this gave her the courage to call and make her free consultation appointment at her local Ashley and Martin clinic.

A scalp examination was carried out by a  consultant who advised Nicola the excess shedding had in fact triggered the start of genetic thinning, evidenced by the patch in the front. This could indicate the onset of genetic hair loss but Nicola was reassured that the effects could be reversed if caught early enough, with an Ashley & Martin medical program and a low level laser therapy device. These treatments would stimulate the hair follicles back into a growth phase and improve the overall quality and thickness.

As with all Ashley and Martin female patients the clinic Doctor completed blood tests to ensure Nicola had no underlying medical conditions which may have been contributing to her hair loss. Satisfied with the results and that there were no contributing underlying factors that needed to be addressed first, the Doctor confirmed Nicola was suitable to commence treatment.

Nicola was relieved that her consultant had not made her feel pressured to make any decisions immediately; wanting to take time to absorb and understand the information she had been given. Her consultant has suggested Nicola think things over and she would call her back in a few days. She left the clinic reassured she had time make an informed decision. It wasn’t long before Nicola returned to make a start on her RealGROWTH® program.

When Nicola returned for her 4 month checkup and comparison photos she was delighted to see her results, her hair was visibly thicker all over and she could also feel the improved quality. Nicola informed her consultant she found the Laser treatment routine easy to fit into her busy lifestyle and the solution was also very easy to apply. Nicola no longer felt dread when thinking about her appearance, feeling thankful she had started her treatment when she did.

Case Study: Ashley and Martin GP Supports Client in Root Causes of Hair Loss

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Amy* had been using over the counter remedies to treat her hair loss for the past six months.  Unfortunately her hair was still shedding excessively causing noticeable thinning.    It had been five years since she had noticed her hair becoming sparser and she was becoming increasingly concerned about how it was impacting her appearance.  Her scalp was tender and she occasionally developed small sores where her hair was falling out.  Amy was 63 and the hair loss that had been affecting her since her late 50’s was affecting her battle with anxiety and depression.  Hearing how Ashley and Martin could help her on the television, Amy went online to find out more and submit an internet enquiry.

Her consultant listened to Amy talk about the things that were causing her stress in her life and her family history of hair loss.  Both her mother and grandmother had suffered from thinning hair in the same way Amy was.  After a scalp examination he diagnosed her with Female Pattern Hair Loss and explained that effects of this could be intensified by stress and other medical issues.

Amy signed up for her Lasercap and medications program straight away.  If there was a chance she could avoid further hair loss and regrow the hair she had lost, she would take it.  She was booked in to see the clinic doctor who, like her own GP, looked at her blood results to find out if there were medical issues exacerbating Amy’s hair loss.  The clinic doctor saw a few areas of concern that he believed had been impacting Amy’s hair growth cycle and worked with her to get these under control also.

After 5 months on the program and consistent use of her Lasercap, Amy was very pleased with the results she had received to date.  Her hairdresser had commented on how much denser and stronger Amy’s hair was getting and wanted to know what she was doing to achieve such substantial changes in her hair. With her hair stronger and her scalp no longer tender, Amy was able to start styling her hair a little more.  The improvement in her hair increased Amy’s confidence and self-esteem.
