    Should I or shouldn't I?

    I think you are putting way too must thought into this and it has taken a financial and psychological toll on you. The SMP isn't close to camouflaging it like you are attempting to and you will be much happier when you let what hair you have go. Do the SMP. Even a decent job will look better. From a distance it looks like you have your hair, but anyone your trying to fool or impress will see your hair is thinning out a lot when within 5 feet. Perseverating over something you have no control of (your hair) is like fixating on whether you can stop it from raining tomorrow. You can sit there and try to control the elements with your thoughts, or you can do what everyone else is doing. Grab an umbrella and head out into the storm. No one else cares as much as you do.

    I feel for this guy. I think that’s why it’s important not to cut corners with something so life changing. I’m glad I had my treatment with his. It was life changing in the positive rather than the negative.

    Maybe one day. As long as I'm happy with what I've done that's the main thing. Thanks for your comments. I still have the choice one day in the future. If I shaved down that's it. No going back. Now it's more flexible. Also sometimes feel Insecure about my scar and grow my hair longer. Sometimes my hair is at a 0.5 on sides and back. Sometimes I leave it till about a 4. SMP wouldn't allow me to do that especially if I got hairline lowered

    Did you ever meet anyone with the finished product ? in theory yes you have ink on your head but its a pretty damn good illusion , you dont kick a pretty girl out of bed cos she is wearing makeup or has had a boob job

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding. I think you want your hairline to remain forever where it is right now. Then you want to cover your whole head so that when future follicles fall out, there will already be dots there so you won't notice. Thats what the guy meant by density. Less and less visible skin, though not to the point of a painted on scalp. The best look for natural in my opinion is to do what I did. My hairline was pretty much where it always was. So I told them, no dots in front of the hairline, just right up to it.

    Shave it all and have a 2nd and 3rd SMP session bringing hairline slightly down perhaps depending where it was before you started losing hair. After having 1 session anyway you now know it doesnt hurt much and also what can be achieved .

    UNE VRAIE SOLUTION

    J ai fait mon traitement, il'y a maintenant plus de 1 ans et je suis super satisfait du travail effectué. j'ai reçu 3 traitements et j'ai exactement le résultat que je voulais; Sofiane est a l’écoute et de bon conseil ... je vous le recommande vivement

    A standard three session treatment of the first two a week apart with a third following on around twelve weeks later will cost about two and a half grand (£) and for you if you follow your existing hairline I am certain you will gain an excellent result. I can imagine that with the amount of hair you have now reinforced with smp underneath you could extend the length of time of not shaving down to the bone, sure it will be shorter than it is in this picture but you will be surprised by how much density it will offer. Go for it, you know you will want to when you lose more, by doing it now the transition to shorter and shorter hair will be less dramatic.

    I'm not interested in the social media element but it would be good to see new case study videos on the site.

    only problem I can think of is how good is your scalp under a system for so long - idealy if it were me Id tell work I need 2-3 weeks off as ive got some family problems to sort out ( ageing parents type thing) id have a few days off before session one where I would hide away shave my head and moistourise like mad ( a good canvas to work on is better) then get session 1 and 2 aweek apart then work 6/7 days later ( also takes time to get used to the stranger in the mirror) - you will fade but the longer you leave until no3 the better for the techy to see what areas need more work . Good luck and remember the most important folk arnt your patients its YOU - if you are feeling great /fit/well etc you can better serve your patients - if you are stressed etc or your health suffers then you cannot help at work - take it as a chance to recharge your batteries.

    Meet me?

    Sorry to far away mate but SMP is best when shaved to the bone so just go for it , so easy to manage no worries about the wind and rain , great in the gym , just wash and go - just keep your head moisturised and in good condition , also if scar is visable folks will not think it is a h/t scar as you appear to have full head of hair - but bic'd to bone

    I'll never understand why people want a bunch of other people to know what SMP is... It's an illusion. If you were a magician, would you want everyone to know how you pulled a rabit out of a hat before you did it?

    Really want to do this but...

    This is such great advice from all of you! I appreciate it so much. I was somehow under the impression that immediately after the first session, up until a second or third session, I would appear very thin on top compared to my sides. I understand it will fade but what you are describing sounds like it's no big deal. I will carefully plan my work schedule around this and go for it. Likely in May or June. I am and have always been a very confident guy in everything I do, but this hair loss thing (starting at 14 years old) has always my Achilles heel. I believe SMP is my answer, and now feel comfortable in my decision to proceed. Thanks all for that boost of courage!

    Really want to do this but...

    Hey I can completely relate to your predicament. I wore a system most of my life at 50 decided was enough. All the problems you have mentioned above about the hassle of wearing one. And I had to contend with a botched hair transplant under the system. Thought long and hard trying to come up with all the scenarios that you are trying to come up with. Leaving the system on during the process, wearing a hat etc. I went in on Friday they shaved my head had the procedure done walked in on Saturday to a family get together. People were shocked that I had shaved a perfectly good head of "hair" I said I wanted to try something different. Did not hear a peep after that. It has been over 2 years the best decision I have ever made. You are over thinking it. Take enough days off so you can have 2 sessions done about 10 days before you go back to work. Patients will wait!!

    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!

    It was performed by a local Metzger (German for butcher). David1963 - We don't allow pictures from other people's "work" but rest assured this is an extremely poor treatment that will require laser treatment, his problems unfortunately go way beyond big dots.
