first procedure down!
Posted 25 March 2017 - 03:59 PM
what a pain... after literally years of having other things take over my opportunities to go and get the procedure, I've finally had my.first treatment. I'm not sure why but there always seem to be something that stops me. wether an illness, moving country... moving back home... broken kneecaps...these have all stopped me in my tracks of.cracking in and getting the procedure started... well, except for the broken kneecap.. procedure was today. 13:30. the plan was simple. easy straightforward 80 mile drive to birmingham. had tge procedure. have some grub. drive home. easy! anyway, the previous Tuesday. 4 days before my due appointment. had abit of a stumble at work... fractured kneecap. no work, no driving, no walking. keep it rested. come back in Monday. brilliant.....plans buggered. now I have another hold up. I could see myself putting it in the back burner yet again. the last time I was due was in January. but a nasty flu put me off my appointment. I knew it'd get put aside and held off again for something else to come along and ruin manotger appointment. so doctor said kneecap was all there, everything in place... no separated bone. just a fracture along my patella. sod it. that's good enough for me. I mean, once I'm there I won't need to worry about my leg.. so booked a train ticket. short walk to train. 1 change. short walk to his clinic from station... so 8am. Head off.out the door hobbling with 1 crutch as I thought it'd be easier than the pair... stupid. 45min. I'm at the station. hop.up some stairs over the bridge and down the other side. pain. i knew it was a bad idea from there. especially as I was already in pain from the bloody walk which felt like forever! on the train. get to Bristol. change over. 10 mins.... normally easy! Haha.. stairs everywhere!!!! final set almost to the top. a nice lady informs me they have lifts. haha. ah well. get in the train. Al seats taken due to a previous train problem. standing for most of it. get to birmingham. short walk. just feels.like forever!! I mean. should be an easy 20 min walk if that. 45 mins of hobbling swearing stumbling... I haven't stopped for any food at this point as I didn't want to get any other hold.uos and make sure I find the place easily enough. eventually get there. hour early! realise, where's my hoodie... hahaha, on the bloody train. and had paperwork I needed along with other things in sure I'll realise I've lost soon. but, had the procedure. after an initial bump start due to my knee. trying to sit well was not fun nor good. first attempt at bending my knee back so I could get on the chair... BLOODY HELL.... it was bloody agony! I didn't want to say anything because I didn't want to cancel the whole thing again and now I'm there. but had to stop to stand... do, got back to it eventually. my poor practitioner Lauren was bloody brilliant. and tolerable. I know I should've rebooked it but I needed it started while I'm there so I know I can finally get this done. so she cracked on with it. first session is all over and am now on my way home. very happy I've had it done. next session I will wait.until my knee is more manoeuvrable but for.now I'm very pleased. the knee aside. tge procedure was very pleasant. it's not painful a.little uncomfortable at times but.nothing atall worth. mentioning. less discomfort than a typical tattoo. I would like my hairline lower as it sits now but tgats something we can chat about and go over at the second session. which I'm already looking forward to. the procedure didn't. last too long atall. 2 hours. I didn't have an awful lot to do. and there's plenty more to Do. but I'm at a stage where it's started now and needs finishing so now no more delays. done dusted. I will upload photos.. when I get some. I'll take some at home. I'll ask his for my before shots as I don't have any myself. but again. it's the first.sessiom and. he hairline does.need to come.down for me. to be happy. but.lauren was very friendly, very professional. hairline does look natural. we will see how it heals.

It's just a first session. They need to be careful first session. Next time they will go darker and denser.
I do agree about the hairline though. It's way too high, where you have drawn it on looks just about right.
Don't panic though bro, it is a process.

anyway. these are the pics. taken today after a shave. some were taken last night after half a days growth. or in fact. a days growth. the difference between my real follicles and tge smp just stands out like a sore thumb. I'm really worried that if I go back to get it corrected it could get alot worse. and it could go darker all over to try blend into the darker patches leaving me with an even more prominent smudged helmet appearance. corners of my temples look so smudged to the point it looks like spilt ink. both my side profiles are hugely uneven. I look alot worse off now and am hugely regretting my decision to go ahead with this. it's a huge shame as so many of the others have had incredible results. I'm not alot worse off as I did have hair in top. mine us just world's apart.
I've reached out to my practitioner via here as I've been told but I've not heard back. I've also contacted a moderator of the forum but I've not had a response either. if someone could shed some light of honest similar situations that'd be amazing. thanks
