Mei* had spent her whole professional life in the spotlight in one capacity or another. In her industry image was important. Four months before coming to Ashley and Martin, Mei noticed her hair falling out at a higher rate than usual, causing patches of diffuse hair to appear and a generalised thinning all over. Desperate to stem the loss of hair density before anyone else noticed it, Mei searched for answers online.
Contacting Ashley and Martin through our website, Mei came to discuss how we could help her. The consultant Mei met with discovered she had been through a stressful period in both her personal and professional life recently. This emotional upheaval had triggered an acute condition called Telogen Effluvium causing a large percentage of hair to shift into the shedding, Telogen, phase and was characterised by an overall loss of density. In addition to this stress related loss, Mei’ had inherited Female Pattern Hair Loss from her father who was bald and her mother who had always had fine, thin hair.
As Mei had come to Ashley and Martin so soon after the onset of her hair loss, her consultant recommended the use of a Laser Cap to deliver low level laser therapy treatment at home. At this early stage the consultant did not feel it was necessary to treat her condition with medication.
Mei purchased a laser cap and although her treatment was self-delivered, her consultant stayed in touch to monitor her progress and provide support through this concerning time in Mei’s life.
Twelve months later Mei was feeling much better about her appearance. Her hair had re-established a healthy growth cycle and she no longer had unsightly patches of thinning hair. With her hair restored, Mei’s family noticed she was back to her usual self.
