It was with his partner’s full support that Sharat* called Ashley and Martin to book his free consultation. Sharat, now 60 years old, had been losing his hair since he was in his 40’s and when he started thinking about treating his hair recently his friend had suggested he contact Ashley and Martin. Sharat had already tried using over the counter remedies to stop his hair from falling out without success and knew that if he was to keep his remaining hair, he would need help from a hair loss specialist.
The consultant Sharat met with took a family history from his as well as discussing any relevant medical issues he was experiencing. Sharat was in good physical health, however he did have a strong genetic connection to hair loss. Both Sharat’s father and brother had also lost their hair and other relatives on both sides of his family were in various stages of hair loss. His consultant offered Sharat a RealGROWTH® medical treatment program to solve his hair loss problem.
Before committing to a full treatment program, Sharat wanted to try it out for a month. The consultant explained to Sharat that while she understood where he was coming from, he was not likely to see visible changes after four weeks on the program. Those initial weeks would be focussed on slowing the shedding hair and restablishing a healthy growth cycle by preventing the formation of the dihydrotestosterone attaching to his hair roots, causing miniaturisation and eventual dormancy of the follicle.
Sharat, still unsure if he wanted to participate in full treatment of his hair, went home to think it over. The very next week he contacted the clinic ready to commence treatment. And never looked back.
The treatment worked exactly as his consultant had told him it would. He first noticed his hair fall slow to a normal rate and once this had stabilised he noticed fine, new hairs appear. The follicles that had entered an extended telogen, or resting, phase had been reactivated by the medication he was taking and were able to move forward into their anagen, or growth, phase.
Sharat was filled with a newfound sense of confidence and was extremely satisfied with his decision to come to Ashley and Martin.
