  2. Smp just for camouflage FUE

    Yes this is definitely achievable, if you have the right practitioner who has experience in scar repair. I have had two linear scars blended in over 3 sessions (2 first year then a touch up 2 years later). I only had my scars covered and am not concerned about being bald on top. With a linear scar they had to fade/blend into the existing hair to get the look just right. I am 3 years into having the scar covered and am very happy with the results - not 100% invisible to me but no one has ever mentioned anything. After 2 years with shaved head and no hat I am to the point that even if it fades and becomes more visible it doesn't really bother me anymore - it was the mental hurdle I had to overcome to get my confidence back. My advice is research to find the right practitioner and only accept being done by them. Also try using a foil electric razor, the longer I let my stubble grow out the more noticeable the scar and the horseshoe looks. Good luck.
  3. Yeah itd be great for them to send someone qualified over in the meantime to atleast take care of their existing clients here...
  4. Last week
  5. This sadly looks alot like the results I have gotten from the Toronto location after 3 sessions. The previous practitioner was never able to get the color right and ultimately ended up going too light. I wouldn't be surprised if I have to get another 2 full sessions to get the same results as others have gotten from his hair. I will pay for the repairs to get it fixed because I don't really have a choice, but I am hoping they send someone more qualified from the UK down to fill the gap. At least until someone new has been put in place.
  6. Toronto location?

    They were slow getting back to me as well. Had to give a call and was informed that the practitioner suddenly left the company without notice and they are working towards bringing a new one on board and hence things are lagging behind in terms of responsiveness from admin. Hopefully there will be a resolution soon.
  7. They were slow getting back to me as i was looking to get my warranty touch up as it's been only 9 months since my last session and I have extreme fading over my head everywhere except the hairline which is way stronger than anywhere else done on my head. After two weeks of waiting, I was informed that the practitioner suddenly left the company without notice and they are working towards bringing a new one on board. I had a very poor experience with the previous practitioner, very rude, didn't listen well to my requests, was always rushed and condescending. So in a way I'm glad he has left and will hopefully be replaced soon with someone significantly more qualified and skilled. But now I am worried about the treatment I received as I paid a great deal of money for it only for it to have faded so much after such a short time, even though I have more remaining hair than a majority of treatments i've seen done on here. HIS has assured me that they will still honour my free one year warranty touchup whenever the new practitioner comes on board, but It's worrisome to have to wait for that unknown date as my expensive treatments have become virtually non-existent after such a short time when the promised time is much longer. I have taken extreme care of the treatment as advised, barely any direct sun exposure as Toronto has been grey gloomy for a long time. And yet still the poor results thanks to a dismissive practitioner who up and left suddenly. I've seen such great results from others on this site but I must say that my experience with the Toronto clinic has not been pleasant and I really hope HIS hair can help correct the situation. I really have had high hopes for this treatment being 24 and losing hair rapidly due to previous cancer diagnosis and chemotherapy. I appreciate customer service re-assuring me that I will still get the free touch-up, but having to live with the poorly done and fading treatment until whenever that might be is upsetting and unfortunate to say the least. I have attached pictures for those who are interested. All light areas are my faded treatment, and the darker areas are my actual remaining hair. The practitioner did the hairline way more dense than anywhere else, hence the fading on top and the crown but a prominent hairline. I hope to correct this and soften the hairline during my warranty touch up. Just want to have this treatment done with so i can get on with life for a couple years and hope it holds up as promised this time..
  8. Toronto location?

    Does anyone know what's going on with the Toronto location? I have tried booking another session through email and phone and no one has gotten back to me. Was wondering if they are still open.
  9. Hello everyone. So I had three sessions done years ago, must’ve been three years ago by now. It’s been great but I’m ready for the forth session, I just want darker, got good coverage, just want darker. But that’s not why I need your help. So his hair is partnered with Bosley now? Interesting. I called and wanted to schedule my fourth session with Mike in Chicago and all of the sudden this woman on the phone is telling me she doesn’t know who mike is and I have to set a consultation appointment with a doctor before I can even have a procedure done. Sigh. So what’s changed? Is pricing any different these days? I was cool with the $800 for my fourth, but knowing Bosley is involved, I have this feeling it’s going to be more. Have people had good experiences in Chicago since this merger? I’m reluctant to have some doctor tat me up as opposed to a tattoo artist you know what I mean.
  10. Tips on how to look good with shaved head

    Agreed regarding tanning, it really makes or breaks the look. I've struggled to find a fake tan that works effectively on the scalp however.
  11. Hi all, I am an ex hair transplant patient or victim, who had 4 bad treatments, which have left 4 bad scars on the back of my head (I would say hypertrophic type - pink and risen). I have not had any HTs for over 10 years and I do not plan to have any more. The top of my head I'm fine with but I'm paranoid about these scars. I have kept my hair long and have tried many things to temporarily keep those scars hidden. I have been reading up on SMP and I think this can be a good solution to permanently cover this region, which I have to cover daily. I live in Birmingham UK, and HIS Hair sounds like the most reputable clinic in my area. They recommended 2 sessions a week apart (with possibility of a third) after a month. A few things concern me. 1. After asking, I have been told that the practitioner will indeed need to shave the area. This is a concern as I typically have the back long to conceal them. There’s a one week gap between Session 1 and Session 2 and I would like to avoid shaving on the first treatment if the scarring will be noticeable. I raised these concerns with the Client service team who have stated that if I wish to do it with longer hair, the consultant will make it work but ideally a shave during the second session would be beneficial. I think I will agree with this as I don't want the result to be compromised but after shaving the back, there's no going back. It will either look seamless or really noticeable and then I will have nothing to conceal it with. What do you think? 2. I thought the procedure is low risk but then I heard about the results being too light or even worse too dark, which requires painful laser removal and then your back to square one. I have been through painful hair transplant procedures (including corrections) and don't want a repeat of this. On average what % coverage can I expect from SMP and with what length? Is it worth the risk? I have done a good job in hiding the scars and don't want to jeopardise this. Would love the thoughts from Practitioners as well as those who have scars and have had tried SMP to conceal them. Thanks

  13. Tips on how to look good with shaved head

    With all due respect u guys have missed the point I was trying to make. Irregardless of what you think shaving your head lowers your appearance rating. I was offering tips on how to improve this and compensate.
  14. Tips on how to look good with shaved head

    I’m quite pale in the winter and nobody as EVER mention “cancer look” to me. You must have a nice circle of friends!!!! Plus everybody looks better with a tan, hair or no hair regarding the the cap thing, total opposite for me. I like wearing caps/hats but never did with hair because it used to make it a mess and reveal my receding hairline. Now I can take it on & off as and when I like not sure any of your points are valid to be honest, you’re basically saying smp will only look good on buff tanned people 🤔
  15. Tips on how to look good with shaved head

    "It's very important to take that cancer look away" ... Nice choice of words.
  16. Hello guys. I had my smp three years ago and would like to share some thoughts since the topic of balding has come up more and more between my friends and I now they enter their late thirties and are starting to lose their own hair. Having lost mine at 18 I can offer some advice. In order to rock the smp shaved head look here are some crucial tips. 1. Get a tan real or fake. It’s very important to take that cancer look away a glow in winter and a good tan in summer 2. Get fit. I’m not a gym goer but I walk lots keep your body in shape out of shape and bald is a terrible look 3. Lose the caps they show nothing but insecurity unless it’s required for sun. 4. Moisturize and take care of your skin I’m now 33 when I was 21 and had list most of my hair people thought I was 30. Now I’m 33 with smp people think I’m in my late twenties. It gets easier over time and you grow into the look. I would love hair I never had it so I miss it even more but smp is the only option for many guys who are not transplant candidates ( take not Wayne Rooney )
  17. Hey fellas, i had a friend who also had SMP done at HiS, and was wondering if hair follicle boosters would damage his SMP treatment? Any thoughts?
  18. Request for SMP Mock-up

  19. Hello, I'm new to the forum. I would like to ask, could anybody photoshop a simulation of how my hairline would look with SMP done? I'm considering doing it, but I'm not sure if it would look good on me. Thanks in advance,

    I don't know what this looks like in person, but in these pictures it would seem that you can go out in public without having to conceal your scalp.
  21. MY Scalp Micro Pigmentation Horror Story

    Yes, I'd like to see how things have progressed, and thank you for coming back with an offer to update. I'd like to see your present state.
  22. Kevin from stockholm?

    I'm interested in getting SMP in Stockholm (norwood 2), but I haven't seen any work from Kevin online. The only info I can find of him is from this page https://www.hishairclinic.com/hair-clinic/stockholm-sweden/ Anyone has any experience with him? I was also thinking of going to visit Sam in Gothenburg since his work seems amazing.
  23. Yeah...it is tough not knowing what the outcome will be... Thanks man!
  24. Should I or shouldn't I?

    Sounds like you are going through the same thought process as I was - including the 'it's too light' feeling post-SMP. I still think mine looks a bit too light but I intend to have a third session to add more density and maybe go very slighlty darker. I do think part of the problem is my very white scalp due to long term concealer use. I'm hoping it will darken a bit with (controlled) sun exposure over the summer - which is why I'm thinking about leaving the third session until autumn. I didn't mention the scar although it does appear to be a bit darker than the surrounding skin. I do agree with a previous poster who said it's visible anyway.
  25. Should I or shouldn't I?

    Thanks for your thoughts. I'v been thinking about it for ages. It occupies my mind way too much and I need to make a final decision. I think the main problem is the scar, if I could get that to a better standard where it's much less visible, I think I would be alot happier. I will be getting it Lasered and starting again, then at the same time lowering hairline. I'll meet with the laser company and then my SMP practitioner to decide a way forward. Thinking about it, I didn't have much hair anyway so it shouldn't even be a question. The positives and negatives are as follows. Positives : Easy maintenance No fibres Don't have to worry about winds or hairspray Debatable if it looks better The smp looks very natural A clean pillow ( no fibres ) Negatives Head seems too white in daylight. In Certain lights it looks better. Even when I'm in a dark room its hard to see the smp Stuck with the same look all my life Scar very visible currently and feel paranoid about it sometimes
  26. Smp can help, but in different lighting it might show up
  27. Should I or shouldn't I?

    I've been following this thread but haven't commented, but as comments have been few I'll go for it Your situ is *very slightly* reminiscent of where I was pre-SMP. Albeit I hadn't had a HT, but had a very thin head of hair camouflaged with copious amounts of concealer. Although perhaps not quite as rough looking as your first pics, I reckon my hair wasn't looking too good towards the end, just before I had SMP. My wife was commenting about it too. I realised it was time to make the choice between shaved/bald or shaved/SMP - continuing the way I was was no longer a viable option. To be honest it looks like you were in a similar situ before you shaved. In my opinion your buzzed off + SMP looks about a million times better than the first pics. I realise this is a very personal thing and the shaved look is more difficult for some guys to get used to than others. I'm therefore conscious that it's a choice you have to make and be comfortable with, but if it was me I *definitely* wouldn't be entertaining growing that back! My biggest concern with having SMP was getting used to the shaved look. But I've got used to it quickly and actually really like it - to the point where I sometimes think this is better than having a full head of hair! It's worth at least giving it a bit more time. Hope that helps a bit!
  28. Should I or shouldn't I?

    Not really getting any comments. Friends and family haven't seen it yet apart from the Mrs who doesn't mind it. Outside it looks very white and almost looks like I've had cancer. 🙁still thinking about growing it back if I can. Sometimes I like it. Other times im not sure. Would love it to be darker like my facial hair but I guess it then wouldn't match the sides.
