Billy in Hong Kong!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Well I made it. Im in Hong Kong!
Before I begin, I would like to thank Jonathan for everything so far. He is
such a cool dude and his MHT looks so natural. He was more than helpful, he
picked me up from the airport, shouted me a free coffee (trust me I needed it,
I had slept for over 24hrs) and got me started with MHT at HIS clinic straight
away. Well what can I say, it was painful at times, especially around the
temples but nothing to unbearable. Jonathan was impressed I managed to keep
still the whole time, especially since I was so Jet lagged.

The whole session took about 3 hours, and we had a small
break halfway and he bought be some chocolate so I could keep awake lol.

I was really impressed when he had finished, I couldn’t even
see where the transplanted scars where at the front of my head. Unfortunately
he wasn’t able to work on my scar as it was still too dark… but as I write this
he is actually sorting me out with another clinic that specializes in ruby
lasers, this will remove the pigments out of my strip scar from my previous
treatment, without actually burning the skin. I have already had two laser
treatments in NZ but with CO2 laser, and trust me they hurt extremely bad, its
like putting your head on a hot frypan. Not to mention the downtime…. 10 weeks.
So yeah, I’m pretty excited to try out this new laser… might as well kill 2
birds with 1 stone.

Anyway you guys must be all dying see some photos. Well here
you go... immediately after my treatment, just to note again… Jonathan did
not work on my strip scar yet.

Guys, the internet is really slow and my laptop is old. You may have to wait until I get back to NZ end of this month for all the photos....

Well guys. It’s day 3 in Hong Kong.
I’m on the 10th floor of the YWCA – Anne Black. Free Internet is on
the ground floor and there are no power sockets down there for my laptop… so I
only got 10min intervals to write up my stuff… Will look into getting a new
laptop… Can’t complain as this one was free lol.

Anyway my MHT has really faded well (see photos). Well I met
Jonathan today at HIS… he took me out for lunch and also booked me in for a
Sonic laser treatment for my scar (many thanks again Jonathan!!!) I was
immediately impressed with the results after the sonic laser treatment… I
didn’t even feel it at all. (It uses high powered sound waves to break up the
scar tissue and the old ink pigments) You can see an immediate improvement (see
photos). I will definitely comeback to get my MHT done on my strip scar in Feb
next year.

Well afterwards, Jonathan took me out for lunch to a sushi
bar. It was very delicious…  it was the
first time I ate at a sushi train (I think that’s what its called anyway). He
then showed me around some Malls, they were massive! There is just so much to
see and do in Hong Kong, not to mention food
and clothes are dirt cheap but high quality. Honestly if it weren’t for
Jonathan… I wouldn’t have a clue where to go or what to do. I have never met
someone so professional yet caring for their customers. HIS Hair clinics really
raise the bar when it comes to looking after their clients… how many HT doctors
will take you out for lunch following a treatment or check up on you to see how
your doing?… not many, if any.

By the way I recommend staying at the Anne Black… The prices
are reasonable, $80NZ a night. You get your own bed, TV, Air Conditioning,
fridge. (I am sharing a communal bathroom, but it is kept very clean).

Well guys.. will keep you posted.

Excellent thread Billy and knowing Johnathan it's no surprise you have been treated well.  The pictures you have attached look fantastic and you should be smiling from ear to ear.  Good luck with the rest of your treatment and keep us updated.

Goodness!

Jonathan sounds like an amazing, sincere man!

 I knew you were in good hands when you mentioned going to the Hong Kong clinic a few weeks back!

WOW @ the immediate post op pics... That looks painful as hell! How long was it sore/tender? Either way, it looks to be well worth it when you look at your pics on Day 3.

And I do really like the way you and Johnathan decided to do the sides of the hairlines. Very defined but it looks natural.

I know your end result will look fantastic because you still have so much hair left.

Kudos, Billy!

Hey Damon... Thanks for the feedback. Will keep you posted.

And Hitopfade... it was painful... but only at times and nothing too unbearable. No pain no gain haha. I will keep you updated with my progress. Most likely will have to come back in Feb next year for the scar but at least I will be returning home with a full head of hair. Yeah I decided to do the side profiles... I like the defined yet natural look. Im so happy with my new hairline... I use to dream of this day and I can't believe its actually happening.

Well I will keep you all posted.

Many Thanks once again for your kind words... really appreciate the positive feedback.

Hey Billy. Looking good. I really looking forward to the final results as your "before" pic is pretty much exactly what I am at right now. I was thinking I would get my wife to pen me a hairline so we can try to choose a hairline which suits my face (I cant even remember what my original hairline looked like). 


I think I will skip the sides as it leaves more inperfections in the hairline to make it look more natural, but we will see once I take a Pilot pen to my head.

@ Bhamchap, no. Jang and Jonathan are two different practitioners.

@ Billy, thanks for sharing. How would you feel about creating a case study on this site? If interested, please drop all the photos you have to damien@hishairclinic.com and I'll check the content with you from there.

Billy,

Thus far, I must say that you've taken to the pigment extremely well.

I wonder if this is due to one's physiology or whether or not it's contingent upon the practitioner's depth of needle insertion.

Either way man, I must say that I see a vast improvement.  The density and follicle-size match up is pretty dead on. 

While I'm not a fan of the sharp temple points, as long as you like that and Jonathan was able to do precisely what you asked for, I think you're on your way to a "homerun" case.

Please continue to post pictures after each session and if possible, for the weeks following your last treatment.  Posts like yours are instrumental to my research.

Billy, I think you have one of the most natural results for a Caucasian male. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you had plenty of hair left. The MHT just really complements your "real" hair and keeps you looking ~*younger~*.

Hey Damien, I don't mind being a case study but the photos I will send will have the faces blurred out. If your ok with that then let me know.

DHT - Thanks for the feedback, I prefer having sharp temples but everyone is different. I will post some updated photos tommorrow, the pigment has really settled in now and is looking flawless :D

Hi Top Fade - I was surprised that it blended in with my norwood 3 hair extremely well. Thanks for the feedback.

BusterBlood27 - Thanks mate for the feedback. Don't worry if you don't have much hair left, MHT works just fine on almost anyone at any stage of hairloss. Worse comes to worse you can get your whole head done :D

Will have updated photos tmrw. Once again thanks guys for the feedback and Thanks again to Jonathan for doing a great job. Can't wait to get my HT scar done in feb next year as well as check out Disneyland while im up in HK.

Billy, not a problem at all. Even if the photos you send dont have your face blurred, I will crop them accordingly.

If you can drop them to damien@hishairclinic.com, I'll create your case study then show you the completed page so you can request any amendments.

Thanks again

Hey Guys,

Thought I would show you the final result. If anyone is planning to go in Feb to do MHT let me know as I'm going back to do my HT scar.

Well I'm extremely happy with my new look and if anyone wants more photos just PM me.

ThanksBilly

Billy, your work looks great.  I have a question for you though.  

Over the past few years I was wet shaving but since July or so, I have been using the wahl balding clipper leaving some reminents of hair (that I have left, lol).  I have a little bit more loss (not by too much) then your before picture but our hair color is pretty similar.  My question is, in your wet shave picture, the "Color" of your hair is much lighter then it was in your before picture.  I have a concern where, when I wet shave the color or shade of hair will be much lighter then with 1 or 2 days growth.  Do you see this issue at all? 

If so, did you select pigments based on 1-2 days of growth or a wet shave?

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Dart,

Same here, I use a wahl. My pigments used are a slightly darker shade then my a clean shaven look. I was also concerned at this and pointed it out. He told me not to worry as it would blend in with my existing hair nicely. Also if I do lose more hair in the future (hopefully not so soon), and  worse case scenario need to wet shave then I can have MHT done throughout my head.

Hope this helps

Thank you Billy.  Glad to know that wasnt a silly question and someone else was concerned with that.

I suppose I will leave it up to the practioner.   I hope I can get similar results to yours!!

I found with the Wahl, if you adjust the 0 down (using the two screws), it definetly cuts.  If you leave the 0 guard "up", I havent had much of a problem.  It was like 45 dollars on amazon. I think its ok, wouldnt say Im raving about it.  As such, I am thinking of getting that R91 that people seem to like on here.

Hey Magic,

Dart nailed the question, you can adjust the 0 down with the two screws.  Personally I like to keep it as short as possible. Just be careful around the ears and you will be fine. I like how I only have to trim every 3 days or so which saves me even more time.

####, Thanks for the feedback, I believe Damien will be making a case study of me.

At the moment, im using my left over dermatch to cover my HT scar which is doing a pretty good job. May as well use it for something useful :D

Also if anyone is planning to go do MHT in HK in Feb let me know as Im heading down there myself then.

Oh btw thought I would mention when I headed back to the gym, no one really noticed that I had MHT done. Everyone thinks I just had a style haircut. Also the lady at reception actually had a long conversation with me for the first time and I've been going there for a year. Must be the MHT and my new Confidence. Guys don't waste your time reading this, Go and get it done :D

Many Thanks to Jonathan once again for doing an excellent job!

Thanks Guys for the Feedback.

Billy,
Why did they go so far back on the sides of your head? Some of your photos look like he went well past your ears on the sides. Do you feel that you had diffuse hair loss on the sides as well as the top?
