  1. Hey forum, haven't posted in a while but id like to begin by expressing how huge of an impact SMP has had on my life and my confidence. It has made the whole hairloss experience so much easier. Obviously i miss having hair but this is the next best thing. I am going to be booking my fourth treatment soon and have realized XXXX is no longer working at HIS and am a little sceptical about using a different practitioner. I am sure the new practitioner is a master of his art like XXXX was but i am only worried about a practitioner working on another practitioners previous work and how the blending will be. please let me know of anyones experiences!
  2. Meet up in Toronto

    i private messaged you
  3. Full heads of shaved hair

    for anyone that sees these pictures. I'm sure anyone who has had SMP done would agree, i would much rather have dude on the rights hair and hairline rather then dude on right. For anyone who is on the fence because they're un sure due to not wanting a shaved head, trust me when i say shaved head is a lot better then receding head. This picture is a great example, both men similar features with a beard and its unarguable that man on left not only looks better but younger.
  4. fading concerns

    Good to know! mayonnaise analogy really put it into perspective haha. I am on 1 year post my third treatment and would say very subtle fading. Just would like a little touchup, not because of fading just for personal reasons!
  5. Meet up in Toronto

    Hey Toekneei, where exactly are you located? http://forum.hishair...n-toronto-dave/ from toronto My last update from exactly a year ago. Going for my fourth soon!
  6. Hey! Check out my first three treatments! http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6177-3rd-session-toronto-dave/ Going for my fourth soon! Very excited. Just to let you know the treatment has changed my life. I'm young and thinking and balding is the last thing any individual wants. But this procedure totally takes away that pain and heartache. From the first session I was beyond impressed and I'm sure anyone who has had the procedure done can also say how they wished they'd have done it sooner. I'm willing to meet up with anyone, it's been a full year since my third appointment and it has held up pretty good!

  8. 4th treatment in Toronto - Nervous

    Apologies gents, i did mean xxxx is no longer with HIS, not Jxxk. I have read in many parts of the forum that Jxxk is the man to go to! all the best to everyone!
  9. 4th treatment in Toronto - Nervous

    Hey Dodgy, everything is good. I guess you could say by me not being on the forum i have continued to my day to day activity normally haha. I have never been more pleased in my life and how life changing the procedure was for me. Obviously you will never have the satisfaction of having long flowing hair like i used to but this beats having no hair at all. i am only 21 and at early stages of hairloss but it truly takes the edge off. to be honest i have no idea if i have thinned or lost any more hair as i am constantly shaving/buzzing my head. if you are on the fence about it, trust me when i say it is worth it. waking up everyday with that relief on your shoulders is unexplainable. Waking up in general is a lot easier haha just wake up and go on with your day is the best thing. In regards to fading i wouldn't necessarily call it that. i would say that it has just settled. exposure to sun and everything else I'm sure like anything will take its toll but i wouldn't say that its not super light compared to my existing hair. All i find is that its a little harder to get away with it if i let my hair grow a bit for a couple of days. Other then that i am only getting my 4th treatment because i want to touch it up a little bit in some areas and my birthday is approaching! i thought i would treat myself to a fresh new haircut haha Also, no one has noticed it other then the people whom i have told. i have never been more satisfied.
  10. Safest bet for a NW 2.5/3?

    Hey PuzzledMuzzle, DodgyBarnet shared my link on this page. if you read over my posts and seen my pictures you can see i was in the early stages of hairloss. i had my third treatment in january and i can truly say i wouldn't have done any other treatment then this, just because of it being so undetectable! i don't wet shave, i use a clippers at 0 and need to reshave every couple of days (which at first sucks but then you get used to the technique, and you begin to like shaving haha) i think the more hair you have at the beginning the better (just my opinion) and because hairloss is so progressive, it really takes away the pain and heartache while your loosing it and still have hair because you barely notice any more hairloss after getting the SMP. feel free to ask any more questions! all the best!

  14. 3rd Session - Toronto - Dave

    hello his forum! I have finally done my third session and cannot get over how pleased i am with my results! i have another set of posts from my first and second sessions with Dave http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6122-toronto-clinic-life-changing-procedure/ First, id like to start off by thanking Dave on his excellent work and for how much this procedure has changed my life. Dave, you are truly a master of this art. Dave really made me feel comfortable like in the other sessions and really cares about what you want as the client. He is someone that truly loves what he does and has a passion for it. He is someone that looks for the best interest in his client and is not going to put a hairline on someone just for the hell of it. What everyone needs to remember is that, as a customer, we are a reflection of the artists work so the outcome is just as important for him as it is for us. Coming into this procedure i had really high hopes and as usual Dave fulfilled them. i had just came back from a months vacation where i got a little sun exposure to the pigment and to my surprise is held pretty well. i used a spray on sunscreen that was made for tattoos and applied it regularly whenever i new id be sun worshipping. I moisturized in the morning and at night (maintenance is key) - look at it as brushing your teeth, if you dont, theyll fall out.... I also got the chance to meet Torontos new practitioner, Kyle. He is currently in training and got the chance to draw on a lower hairline for me. which really was the cherry on top. You'll be an awesome practitioner one day, all the best! He also had the procedure done and it looked awesome! He's a great example of a low cut with a solid beard. Comparing this procedure in pain to the other two, id definitely say it was 2/10. i could barely feel it at times. i almost fell asleep at one point haha. and I've never gotten a tattoo in my life and I'm terrified of needles. so it just goes to show for the people who are scared of pain. mind over matter. For anyone in the Toronto or Seattle area, Dave is the man! don't hesitate at all for this procedure. i can honestly say it was the best thing i could have ever done. i almost had a full head of hair going into the procedure (see last post) and i can truly say i like this way more. Hair loss is such a gradual thing and at 20 years old i was not expecting it at all. For anyone, at any age I'm sure it can be hard but honestly this IS THE ONLY PERMANENT SOLUTION in my opinion. it is the best bang for buck. it is something i wish i could just preach to the world. and at times i can't even tell where the pigment is and my actual hair unless i run my hands through my head haha. At my age, my dad actually had a hairpiece and he told me that he stopped wearing it due to the fact he always thought someone was starring at him and he said id feel the same about this. Sorry dad, you were wrong haha. To anyone who feels the same way, trust me... at the end of the day always remember, its better then what you had. I've told people (close family) and they can't even tell. REMEMBER, you have to live with it... not them.. so do what makes you feel better. HISHAIR and Dave, i can honestly say, you guys saved my life and i wouldn't have wanted it any other way. If anyone in the Toronto/GTA area wants to meet up, message me and id be more then happy!

  15. 3rd Session - Toronto - Dave

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but from my understanding Dave is in Toronto the first two weeks of each month for awhile, until Kyle (new practitioner) has finished his training. so i believe he will be at both.
  16. Hello Toronto, Canada and the rest of the HisHair followers. I just want to give everyone a taste of the experience i had with HisHair. Before I do i just want to give a little background on myself. I am from Toronto, Canada and I am 20 years old. i began starting to see hairloss/thinning and some receding when i was around 18. It was never anything drastic just slowly and slowly i noticed it was getting thinner as i got towards present day. Haircuts became more frequent and comb overs became an everyday thing haha. Hairloss does run in my family. my father is a Norwood 7 and out of all my mothers family members her dad is the only one who still has a full head of hair and he is in his 70's. So by looking at my family history i already no that Norwood 7 is the farthest potential hair loss i can go. My father around my age was almost completely bald so in a way i am kind of happy that i wasn't at that stage yet but i new it wasn't far away for me. i looked for every option and did countless and countless amounts of research on systems, ointments and surgeries. For myself i couldn't justify wearing a wig or hairpiece, so that was out of the picture. i also didn't want to use any concealers or ointments like rogaine, etc. i just wanted a quick fix (I'm young and impatient haha). i even went as far as looking into and booking up to 7 consultations with hair transplant surgeons. for someone at my age you are going to believe everything you hear, especially if it sounds right and the doctors no exactly what to say in order to suck you in. i am very lucky that both of my parents were very supportive of any route i wanted to take. The worst part for me was that after every consultation i would get a different outcome or answer from the surgeon. some surgeons said "FUT is perfect for you, in order to get the most follicles per strip" and some surgeons told me "FUE is perfect so i wouldn't have a huge scar" but for both there was always pros and cons. every surgeon would say to me, "your age is a huge factor, but well still do it" ---- looking back at it now it was definitely a red flag ---- as frustrated and as upset that i was still determined to have that full head of hair. my last consult was with one of the biggest transplant surgeons in Toronto. i met with 2 doctors, who like everyone else went through all my options. what they told me next surprised me and really opened my eyes. They both looked at me and said "we can do the procedure for you tomorrow if you really wanted and take your money and that'll be the end of it, but in no way are we going to sit here, tell you we can do it and ruin the rest of your life. How will we sleep at night?". To me that showed me right there that if someone is willing to loose money for the good of someone, this procedure was definitely something to take real precaution toward. At this point i truly learned not to just act on my emotions like many people seem to do in desperation. i really need to thank my parents for constantly making me do my research and telling me to get more opinions from clinics. i honestly can say that they saved my life from making a horrible decision. ----- SKIP MY BACK STORY ------ As time went on and i almost felt hopeless, i was on YouTube one night and one of the ads were of HisHair (i believe it had to do with all the websites i was looking at for hair transplants so it was "cached" into Youtube for me) when i seen it was immediately in disbelief. i began to search it up and see many different stories about the procedure and success stories. i did not see one bad result from HisHair and was still in disbelief. i had never heard of such a thing other then people who have Alopecia and they receive a form of tattooing for their eyebrows. i remember right away booking a consultation and sending in some pictures. the same day i received a phone call from Luis. we had a very long discussion of how the procedure would happen, all the pros and cons to it, how the clinic works, etc. by the end of it he had me convinced that this was the procedure for me. i later went on that same week to book my first session for October 26, 2014. i was counting down the seconds to my first session but to my luck it got canceled for unknown reasons. i did not want to give up and was determined to get the procedure done. Christie, Fiona and Chris at the head office really made it feel like i was first priority and really made me feel comfortable and that everything was under control. they were such a pleasure to work with and was very blessed to have dealt with a very reliable team. When i finally got word the clinic was opening i immediately booked my appointment. (First session, December 6, 2014 and Second Session December 12, 2014) in Toronto. i had never been so nervous and excited in my life. Before going through with the procedure i met up with Luis to see how a settled treatment looked and i could not tell the difference from the real and SMP hairs. it was truly a blessing in disguises and Luis you sold me on it so thank you brother! Because i am 20 and i still have a lot of growing to do i wanted a hairline not that was square, but a hairline that was appropriate for my age but also something i would eventually grow in to. On the day of my first session i was very nervous, i was prescribed Adavan from my family doctor just to take the edge off not for the pain really. (i also took advil, but i believe it caused more bleeding for me in my second session). i met with Dave who came from the Seattle Clinic to do the procedure. He also had the treatment done and it looked AWESOME, he is a great example of how people who have remaining hair can really embrace the SMP and just redefine your edge up look with hair on top. Dave was a really cool guy, he is very confident with the procedure and really makes you feel comfortable as a patient. he is a pleasure to work with and really cares about the patients best interests and is very straight forward. i feel that with this kind of procedure that in order to get the best results you need someone whose not just doing the procedure for the hell of it. Luis and Dave were once clients of HisHair and so they are perfect candidates for selling and doing the procedure as they no first hand what its like and can be related to very easily. When it comes to pain, i would honestly say a 3/10, a lot less pain then i expected and ive never had a tattoo before. for anyone that cannot handle the pain, i always say keep in mind the end result. mind over matter. As the first session was done i immediately had unexplainable happiness towards the results. besides the redness, you could barely tell i had the procedure done. As the days went on awaiting my second session i noticed some settlement. REMEMBER its NOT fading, because fading is when it does not exist in the skin no more, settling is the pigment going to its settled state. i did not shave my head for the week as i was waiting for my second session On the day of my second session i was really excited for the fact that the density factor was going to come into affect. the first session is more or less creating a shape or template for the SMP and the second session is creating more density. Yet again Dave was awesome and really knew how to make me feel comfortable and give me a treatment that truly suited my needs. i would say that the second session was a little more tender then my first, but completely worth it. Nothing really changes in the second session so I'm not going to bore you with a step by step. but by the end i felt even better then i did in my first session. Dave, you are the man and i cannot thank you enough. you truly changed my life. i cannot wait to do my third session with you. it has been a couple of days since i got my second session and i have been to christmas parties with family and friends and none of them can tell i did anything other then the fact i cut my hair. THIS PROCEDURE IS UNDETECTABLE. i put money on it! i only would tell because now i am looking for it, which I'm sure everyone would do if they had the procedure done. This procedure honestly changed my life and thats coming from someone who had a full head of hair and never once in my life have shaved my head. I am 20 years old and had only begun my hairloss cycle that wasn't even that drastic. i no how hard and self esteem killing it can be but I'm telling you, there is nothing like this treatment. i have been around countless numbers of friends and family since getting it done and NO ONE! has a clue. and it was literally the day after. Hairloss to me is a slow killer, very progressive and slow. With SMP it literally takes all of those negative feelings away and you never even realize that you had it done because personally i can't even tell where my old hair was haha. so for anyone that is feeling indecisive about making the decision i am telling you its worth every penny. Take the plunge. if your already bald or going to be you have nothing to loose, even just to see the procedure done on someone. and coming from someone whose in the "technology era" there is no photo editing being done. it is the real deal. what you see is what you get. i hope everyone has the amazing experience i had. can't wait for my third session. Thank you again Dave, Luis, Fiona, Christie, Chris and the rest of the HisHair Team! Before Session 1 After Session 1 3 Days after Session 2
  17. Extremely rigid customer service

    Hey Muddy i too had a similar situation to you. to my understanding and my best advice is that you never no how much more hairloss/thinning will happen so for the best results might as well do the whole scalp while your there. it'll make everything look denser whether you decide to shave your head or keep it long. take a look at my post (it shows while i had hair, how it was when i shaved, and all my treatments) it might change your mind and make you want to do the whole thing and you might actually like the shaved look like i did. Because hairloss/thinning is so gradual, its tough on anyone. but what really sold me on this procedure was the fact that the fact your shaving every couple of days (depending on individual) you totally forget about hairloss/thinning because you don't see nothing fall out or big see through areas. check out my post and look at all my pictures it will give you a better idea what someone with diffuse hair loss can look. best of luck! http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6177-3rd-session-toronto-dave/?do=findComment&comment=69302
  18. 3rd Session - Toronto - Dave

    thank you so much everyone! really means a lot especially coming from anonymous people who are in the same boat as me! WestSide, from the people in which I've told I've had mixed reactions (nothing bad) but since i had a decent head of hair before they don't really realize how much pigmentation I've done until i show them pictures of me right when i shaved my head for the first time. some family members are actually in complete awe of how undetectable it is (which words cannot describe how good those words sound when thats the most important thing) i have family members with alopecia universalis who deal with different types of pigmentation in eyebrows & eye lashes and they've said to me "we have no idea and trust me we notice those things right away because were aware of such procedures". To be honest the biggest thing for me is the fact that its not even about others noticing it necessarily, its that I'm not constantly thinking that somethings on my head or that I've done something. my biggest advice i can give to anyone is its your attitude towards it all. if you believe and feel better not physically but mentally too then who cares what others think. i went into the procedure already thinking that "its going to be better then what i had" and going in with that mind frame you'll never be disappointed. I also look at it like this. for example... there are billions of people in this world. of those billions of people about half have some sort of balding or thinning (whether it be male or female). of those billions of people who are NOT balding or thinning, how many do you think pay attention to procedures or research hairloss treatments? PROBABLY NONE. Now those other people who are balding or thinning how many do think have accepted it? MAYBE HALF? and now of those who are looking for treatments/procedures, how many do you think you run into on a regular basis? 5... 10...? and of those people how many do you think even no of scalp micro pigmentation... NONE! so the fact of the matter is that no ones ever going to realize that you did something, because they don't even no that there is technology that can even do so! SO FOR ANYONE WHOSE CONTEMPLATING DOING THE PROCEDURE AND DOESNT WANT TO EXPERIENCE WHAT ME AND SO MANY OTHERS ARE EXPERIENCING, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE... because at the end of the day, your going to be better off then you were before.

    SESSION 3 - CHECK IT OUT http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6177-3rd-session-toronto-dave/
  20. Toronto Clinic

    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. i have been following for a couple weeks now and have seen lots of SMP Cases and i am amazed. I am a 20 year old from the Toronto area and have been noticing hair loss/thinning for about 2 years now and it really has affected me immensely! I am currently a college student and i find myself wanting to skip out on things every college activity, hanging out with friends or just going out in general. Though i still have a good amount of hair, it is something that is bothering me because it went from me noticing to long time friends pointing out to me. From early teenage years i was always the kid with long curly hair and i remember when i first wanted to cut it my father (Norwood 6/7) would always say to me "Enjoy it while you can". i always brushed it off like "no way it would happen to me, my moms parents don't have hairloss in the family". As i cut my hair shorter and shorter i slowly noticed less growing back in certain areas (temple areas and frontal area) and thinning in crown. I have looked into every type of hairloss treatment, surgery, etc. and the cons never outweighed the pros. And i have been told many different things from different companies either telling me "i am the perfect candidate" and some telling me "whoever told you this treatment is right for you is crazy". where there was other cases who were in disbelief that one told me to go through with FUT and others telling me i was crazy for considering FUE. The end result, a lot of confusion and a lot of stress with a side of an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness. Many travels for consultations where they would just tell me everything i didn't want to hear. There were many cases where i was told yes and my mom would say to me "get another opinion" and me being a young adult was just wanting to act upon my decision out of desperation. Though frustrated at the time, there isn't a day that goes by where i don't thank my mom for saving me from having a huge scar in the back of my head! When everything looked and felt hopeless i remember the night i came across HisHair advertisement on youtube. I have heard about "Hair Tattoos" before but never was willing to look into it because i was stuck on the idea of just wanting a full head of hair like my friends! But as i soon came to realize, it wasn't about having a full head of hair. Though in my life i have NEVER shaved or buzzed my head, i didn't think of it being something that would bother me. what bothered me was the fact i am 20 and having a head of a 35 year old man. I felt that with the thinning of my hair it would take away my youth, not only physically but mentally as well. When i saw His Hair i felt the biggest relief due to the fact that pretty much EVERY ONE was a candidate! Being from the Toronto area there is not much of a big market for SMP CLINICS. I have done countless and countless amount of research on this procedure like i did with the transplants and other topicals. Unlike those procedures/treatments, SMP was by far the most affective physically and costly. I don't think i have ever been this excited. I think it will take the edge off for future hairloss, because though it is gradual, the Pigment will cover up where i would eventually be loosing hair. In my opinion, this time of my life is the most important in order of finding myself and creating an image for myself. Please HisHair, help me get my life back on track. This procedure in my opinion is truly a blessing. For anyone who has MPB, Alopecia, scar victims, etc. I would truly like to hear more about the Toronto clinic as i am very interested in booking an appointment ASAP!

  22. Receding Hairline

    check out my procedure. i am a case where i was early stages of hairloss. my practitioner shaved my head for me when i was there. http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6122-toronto-clinic-life-changing-procedure/
  23. Toronto

    i too live in the gta. but i am away for the holidays. maybe we can arrange something in the new year!
  24. Can I watch a session done in person

    toekneei, check out my procedure i had a couple of weeks ago http://forum.hishairclinic.com/topic/6122-toronto-clinic-life-changing-procedure/ there is nothing to worry about. as you'll read in my post i had a full head of hair before doing the procedure and i grew up being known as the kid with the long curly hair. in these past couple of weeks I've seen friends, family members and have gone in public. even the people who know i have done it say they will put money down that it is undetectable. I've never shaved my head in my life and i prefer this then anything else. To wake up every morning and leave your house not worrying about hairloss or being noticeably bald is such a blessing and thats why i am 100% for this procedure especially for people who are in the early stages of hairloss and no that norwood 5,6,7 or even less are in the family. i will be going for my third session and i cannot wait. all the best!
  25. This weekend i will be having my first session! i have many emotions going into this procedure. both excited and very nervous!! what should i expect?? are there anything i can do to reduce pain and anxiety. also, i have a good amount of hair on my head but will be shaving it down. Will the clinic be able to shave my head ? or do i need to do it at home? the reason I'm hoping the clinic will do it is because I've never seen my head shaved down and id rather not see it at all unless i have the SMP done haha. i will be posting before and after pictures as well soon. can't wait! very very very excited!
