  1. Hey Jdawg, I see you finally got the treatment done, happy for you bro, if after the second treatment settles and the density from the sides does not match the density ontop (your smp) then a 3rd treatment is needed.
  2. life after smp

    Hey htownboy I feel the same way! There's nothing like getting your old confidence back!! Now you can dress how you want to without having to worry about (is this outfit going to Match this hat??) It feels good to have your freedom back. Enjoy bro.
  3. black dots

    Hey pat94 its only been 5 days since your second session (way too soon to start panicking) you have to allow a few weeks for your treatment to settle, for the size and color of the dots to start matching your existing follicles.
  4. Spotting SMP Out and About

    Saw this guy in a clothing store the other day pretty sure he had the treatment done. His scalp was incredibly oily and shinier than hell! When your scalp shines like that it just screams (hey look at meee!!) lol

    Hey waiting732, ive seen 2 touch ups and scar work done by Orion, I had the opportunity to chat with all three guys while I was there and all three looked amazing! Orion does great work.
  8. When to shave after second session

    @rich007 I was not trying to scare anybody bud!! I was actually being very helpful and my info actually comes from the aftercare guidelines on His website! By waiting just a few extra days you avoid the chances of shaving off scabs that might still exist within those 4 days!
  9. Sephora has in stores or online for $35, that's were I get it
  10. When to shave after second session

    Hey bitethebullet, I would say wait atleast 7-10 days before shaving, that way you don't accidentally pull any healing scabs that might contain pigment.

  13. Samson's experience

    Like some of you i also did a great deal of lurking and researching before finally taking the plunge last month (feb 26th) when I had my first session with Graig in the NYC clinic. A little bit of background on me I'm 30 years old and started loosing my hair when I was about 21, before getting the treatment done I was a Norwood 5 and literally spent the last 9 years living under a hat. For nine long years I avoided going to places that I couldn't wear a hat so needless to say I missed out on a lot of good times and great memories because I was too afraid and embarrassed to take that damn hat off! Lol. The only good thing that came out of always wearing a hat is that nobody really knew for sure if I was balding or not, to most people I just seem like a guy that really likes hats! Lol. Funny thing is it always wore Yankee hats (I'm not a big baseball fanatic) and random people would spark up random baseball conversations with me and I would have to pretend that I knew what the hell they were talking about! Lol. Ok so as of right now i had 2 sessions done, the second session was done on March 8th. Prior to the first session I spent about 4 sleepless nights from the nerves and excitement of getting this done. Before my first session I took a moltrin 800mg thinking this would do some justice and it didn't, the first session was painful to me about a 5/6 out of a 10, that moltrin didn't do shit! Lol. After about the first 30 minutes we took a break and I saw something amazing in the mirror, I saw my hairline that I haven't seen in almost a decade. my second session was done on March 8 and I couldn't be happier, at this point it's only been 4 days since my second session so it still has some settling to do but the pigments seem to be holding up nicely and I'm waiting atleast 10 full days before shaving. Some info for the people who are thinking of doing this, for my second session I took codeine with Tylenol 30mg/300mg and it definitely helped a lot! Make sure you bring your fully charged phones and listen to some toons while in session, it helps pass the time also chewing gum keeps you preoccupied some so that help me aswell. Pain and all it is definetly worth it and I would recommend Graig, this procedure and HIS. Graig is a great asset to HIS, that guy is a magician with that pigment needle! He definitely knows his shit! Any questions feel free to ask, thanks everyone. FYI, the first pics are my before, followed by a pic immediately after the first session, the next day after the first session and the last 2 pics are the same day after my second session.

    Hey June 19, I use a sunblock/moisturizer combo it's called Hope oil free SPF 30 and it's great! You can get it in sephora and it was recommended by Matt from the NYC office. Thanks.

    Hey johnnyNY, the best antishine product I have used is peter Thomas Roth anti shine, it's a little pricey (35 dollars) but it's worth it!
  16. 1st session down: Chicago

    It's coming along great! Looks awsome!
  17. Samson's experience

    Thanks @johnnyNY, I had no work done on the sides, I have a lot of density on the sides so I didn't require any work (wish I had that problem on the top of my scalp! Lol) Good luck with your treatment!
  18. Samson's experience

    @juju thanks for the compliment! Yours is comming along beautifully!
  19. Looks fantastic flippo! honestly your smp has to be one of the most realistic I have ever seen!
  20. Samson's experience

    @crazycanuck thank you @pele yea bud it's a process, some lucky ones pull it off with 2-3 treatments and the rest of us need alittle more to make it perfect.

    Will do hairkiller
  22. Samson's experience

    Hey pele hope all is well, I had a few very minor spots that I needed touched up just to blend everything in. How is yours looking?
  23. Samson's experience

    Hey everybody, so 12 days since my 4th session (minor touch up) and I couldn't be happier. It's all settling in nicely and I should be done for now (hopefully lol) Here are a couple of updated pics! Thanks guys.
  24. First treatment today.....

    I took 800mg of ibuprofen (Motrin) my first session and honestly it didn't do shit! Lol it was still pretty painful, on my second session I took just one codeine/acetaminophen 300mg tablet, and the pain was reduced immensely.
  25. NYC Pics ??? (Orian/Orien)

    There isn't much info about Orien on here but I've seen his work in person and he's really good! I saw him work on 2 different guys one a scar the other a touch up and he does amazing work!
