    Finished 3rd session in early 2015, still the best choice I have ever made in my life, I can honestly say I prefer this look over when I had hair lol, my girlfriend of over a year haven't even been able to spot it, and she touches my head every day! Honestly if your on the fence, this goes for the young people as well, get it done. Male pattern baldness have no cure, accept it, because you are fighting a battle that you are not going to win. Get fit, and get a tan and your good!

    Hair line is too dark.

    I jumped the gun on my initial thoughts. My hair is on point. After the 2nd session, the blending is flawless.

    I had mine in 2014 with a top up in '16 on the hairline. Mine In my opinion has got better over time. That's with about 3 days of not wet shaving

    Hairy Again

    Session 3 finally under my belt. Quite pleased with the results — Ian Dennis, the Houston practitioner, continues to be a master at what he does. Redness faded a lot quicker this time as he was really just adding in darker dots for variation and blending into the sides. I'm hoping I can let this grow 3 days now before it's noticeable and I need to shave. Of course, I could probably go a week and no one would notice — if this experience has taught me anything it's that people's eyes just want to see things that make sense, and the idea that part of my hair might be fake just doesn't compute. So, if anyone's on the fence for reasons of getting called out, you can put that fear to rest. One mid-session shot and a few pics from yesterday (these are only a few hours after shaving, for the most part). Those two pics in my car are taken right after each other; one with sunroof open and the other closed to show that even some lights will still totally make it disappear. I expect the same would happen on someone with a short buzz as well, though. I guess I'm off to go live my life now, I suppose. Hasn't really sunk in yet that going bald isn't something to worry about anymore, but I know that's to come.

    Doesn't last

    I have had mine from 2014. It hasn’t faded at all apart from original fading. Its half way into 2018 I may go to his just to have a check up but it’s more brecause of routine

    Hi, you are in my opinion the perfect candidate for it. You have a hair and a hairline that enables you to hide the treatment very well once done as you still would have a shadow on head and with the smp it won’t be as drastic a change. But a big enough change for it to have an awesome effect you could get away with a tiny bit of Growth good luck

    What does an SMP head feel like?

    Well I quickly realized that most people that comment on SMP don't actually know what they are talking about lol. Even if you have a little tiny stubble on top, it will feel like a full head of hair cause nobody at all touches our head with just their fingers, they would use their whole hand and therefore any stubble feel will feel like a full head of hair.

    Shoutout to the Toronto clinic

    Newbie from Toronto here. First of all, a big thank you to everyone who's contributed to this forum. You guys have made this experience so much easier on me. Cheers to you guys, and to HIS for hosting this forum. So far, I've had 3 sessions at the Toronto clinic. I'm light skinned, and roughly a norwood 6. My first 2 sessions came out super light, almost unnoticeable (after about a week), but I'm very pleased with the approach. I was afraid to go too dark, and too soon. I wanted my SMP to look as natural as possible, so getting that perfect shade meant the most to me. The practitioner recommended we try a shade 30 for my first session. And it actually looked decent for the first week, but then it slowly disappeared. Then came the 2nd session, and we dropped to shade 26. About 2-3 weeks later, it almost disappeared again (but not as bad as the first session). So if you looked close enough, you could still see some faint dots. Anyways, I wasn't concerned. I know from your guys' stories that this happens a lot. And then 5 days ago I had my 3rd session. We went down to a shade 20 or 21. This one seems to be holding up a lot better. Perhaps we finally found the perfect shade. I haven't shaved my head yet, so I'll have to throw up some pictures for you guys when I do. Obviously this last session will fade a lot in the coming months, but it's not a big deal. I rather go too slow than too fast. The bottom line is that SMP involves layers and layers of treatments. "Slow and steady" was the advice that was often given out here, and I'm glad I listened to you guys. My advice to the other guys on the fence is to take it slow, and take it easy - because HIS offers you their guarantee. They've already offered me my 4th session (free) since the first 2 had faded so much. So it's nothing I'm stressing over...HIS will get it right for you, as long as you're willing to put in the time. I know I'm in good hands with HIS. And by the way, the practitioner in Toronto is spot on. The guy knows what he's doing!

    the bald ego

    Really want to do this but...

    A one-session approach would be foolish. The practitioner and client need to assess and adjust (over several sessions) the style, rate of fading, density, need for blending, etc., etc. Anyone who had been through the HIS protocol will appreciate and attest to the wisdom of a mindful and careful approach. Many here who’ve completed SMP also know that the final “look” that we achieved was an **evolving** perceptual process, with the greatest results attainable only by giving time to build upon prior work, live with each session’s progress for awhile, and then to make enhancements. Rebuilding your look should not be an instantaneous endeavor. To ’SickOfHidingIt’... if I were you, I’d first make a transition to a close-shaved style and let your co-workers and others get used to that new look. When you feel ready, then go for SMP. Alternately, some people who have your concerns end up taking a full ‘travel’ week off and knock out their first two sessions. Ordinarily, a third session is needed a month later to build density and make important refinements, but the first two sessions would interimly leave you quite passable as “not bald”. I used to wear a wig, and was a corporate executive. I hated the wig; it felt fake. More to the point, I felt fake. One day, I just said fukkit to whatever people want to think... I shaved my whole head to Ground Zero, and dumped my wig in a trash can. From a shaved look, SMP is a simple process. Many of us, including myself, have traveled some distance to get the best work done. >>> You can always find a way to do something really important. I was bald for over 40 years by the time I found SMP around 18 months ago. Finding an undetectable, sustainable, low-maintenance baldness “cure” has allowed me to feel physically good about myself for the first time in my whole adult life. The best thing is to do good things for yourself, rather than for others. Not good to live for what “they” might think. Keep your focus on the best end goal for you. Good luck!

    Hairy Again

    First day back at work — no comments made when I walked in, but of course it's hard to tell if they were just being polite or not. Got the confirmation I needed later in the day, though: one of my closer coworkers (also losing his hair a bit) walked right up and asked if I had shaved a bit closer than normal. We had a two minute conversation about the razor I use, him inspecting my head the whole time, and didn't seem to suspect a thing.
