I had my first session yesterday, after reading so many reviews about the pain etc... I was so nervous, my practitioner was Lauren, she made me feel so at ease right from the start! I would give the pain level 2 out of 10 it's more of an annoying thing then pain!! I was a Norwood 7 so basically I had my whole top and back and even a little on the sides done! I can honestly say I can't be anymore happy, the only thing that has frustrated me is that I waited almost 4yrs from my consultation to build up courage to have it done! It's actually the best thing I've ever spent money on. I'm soooo excited for my 2nd session which I'm having next Thursday. Can't wait to see what I'm going to look like after my 2nd session! Lauren was so good to work with it was like having your mate do the procedure but whilst she kept professional at the same time. Thanks so much Lauren
See you next week!:)

Great to hear bud! 

 

Suggestion - start a thread and track the progress on your journey by posting pictures before and after each session.  This will help you as well as others who are on the same boat as you were, to make the decision on SMP a lot easier.

Four years, wow! You'll be blown away by the final product.

The sensation felt like a real nice head-scratching; I found it relaxing to the point that I would've literally fallen asleep if my practitioner hadn't kept chatting me up!

Maybe ask Ed (our Moderator) to move this thread to the "Diary" section? That way, you can keep your first thoughts bundled with your diary.

Looking forward to the pics.

Fair play to you mate! I'm in the same.situatiin as you. Waited 5 years or more to finally pull my finger out and get it done. Will be going in February for my first. The thing that will feel weird for me is having someone allowing ly touch my head again!

@the bald ego yeah I will ask Ed to do that, thanks.
@P4nter4 I'm glad you've made the choice to have it done,
Your practitioner whoever it will be, will be So good trust me, they make you feel so welcome and relaxed. Anytime you want a break or stretch your legs or drink just tell them. I've never felt so relaxed having the treatment done. Since I've been home I've shown my cousins and brothers etc... they can't believe it's not hair lol also they want me to take them down now for the treatment( we are from a bald family hahahaha) I knew once I would have it done I could encourage other people that were sat on the fence to have it done. I'll try work out how to upload some pics lol.

Good update I had Andra for 1st and second it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped Lauren took over and I couldn't of been happier your in great hands there, she will do what it takes to get your result, my 3/4 both took 6 hours Lauren didn't complain once and stayed back past her time both sessions, a credit to the company. Hit us up with some pictures when you can.
All the best.

I think everyone will have a loyalty for the practioner who did their treatment and made the way they feel about themselves so much better . I also feel that His genuinely care about the way things turn out , not just the money that's why I'm always bigging them up as a company

Had my 2nd session yesterday with Lauren again, I can't believe the diffrence from my first session to my 2nd. Once again it's the exact same procedure as the first but basically just adding the "densisty".Me and Lauren tweaked a couple of things like lowering the frontal and going a couple of shades darker.Once again even tho I knew what was happening at my session but the pre-nerves were lurking to get me but once again thanks to Lauren ( my practitioner/saviour) made me so relaxed I nearly fell asleep, the session was like 3.5 hrs long but felt like 30mins. Lauren even stayed late to make sure I was completely happy with my finished product. Lauren for me has made the whole procedure just the best thing I've ever done as if there was anyone not sure or have any kind of anxieties Lauren is the practitioner for you!(I'm not saying any of the other practitioners wouldn't be the same I'm just giving my personal opinion of my experience with Lauren).I will upload more pictures very soon.

These are pictures 3 days after my 2nd session
There is a massive difference from 1st session to 2nd session
I've not washed or shaved my head fully yet. Also I will be having a 3rd session as I might want my front lowered at little at the centre of the forhead. I'm still not sure weather to leave it or lower it a little
I'll speak with Lauren when I go for my 3rd session. My crown has massively disseapered I've still got to wait for the blending to settle down to see what is or if anything else is needed.

Hi Franageskou,

Your SMP procedure looks amazing. I,m due to have my procedure in Birmingham next week by the clearly talented Lauren. I must admit I was slightly apprehensive as I've never met Lauren before or seen any of her work as my consultation was in London. So I quickly done a search on the forum and came across you and your experience...very timely! As soon as I read your posts and saw the pics from your first treatment a lot of my fears were unfounded. Now I have just seen your second pics I can't wait to get started and it has reinforced the decision I made to have the treatment is the right one for me. Thanks so much for sharing your experience it's helped so much!
