Hi guys, i been considering this treatment for years now and finally had a consultation this past week. I was wondering if they are any members That had the procedure done and are fair complexion like me in Toronto area. I understand there is one practitioner working here any information about the quality of his work? Sorry if this been talked about already. If anybody had the procedure here would be willing to meet up that would be great. Of course lunch or a drink on me. I should mention I’m about Norwood 7 now. Thanks!
Hi guys, I am a 27-year-old guy from the Helsinki area in Finland. I have started to lose my hair maybe since I was 24 years old, I was always dyeing my hair so in the beginning it was hard to spot my hair loss. When I was 25 years old my friends started to comments on my hair loss because I had started to lose a lot of hair even on the crown. At this point, it was time for me to start wet shaving my head. I was searching the web and Scapl micro pigmentation seemed like the only good long-term option, especially for me as I don't want to wear a wig, it would feel a bit false and Hairtransplant is too risky for me. At first I didn't know is SMP would be the right option for me as my head is a little bit asymmetrical. I think it looked a bit odd when I shaved it. However, I still wanted to give it a try. Therefore, after searching the web several months and reading different forums, I came across Sam at HisHair in Gothenburgh and after sending some pictures and talking to him on the phone I booked my appointment. I flew from Helsinki to Gothenburg and arrived the evening before the treatment. I slept at a cheap hotel near the clinic. After breakfast, I met Sam at 10 at the HisHair clinic. At first, I was a little bit nervous but while we were drinking some coffee with Sam he explained thoroughly the procedure and I got a lot calmer. I was also a bit worried because the hair I still have on my head and on the temples is quite light colored. At first we started by defining my new hairline with a white marker. Sam asked if I was happy with it or if I wanted to change it. After studying it carefully in the mirror I thought it was a perfect replica of my old hairline so I was very pleased with it. Therefore, Sam put dots to mark where the white marker had been and after that, he continued to dot the whole head (except my temples). The procedure for me took about 3h. When we started the treatment it stung a little bit in the beginning but soon I forgot about dotting and the pain was not bad at all. AAfter the treatment, my head was a little bit red but it calmed down quickly (1-2 days). My head was now a bit darker shade than the rest of my hair (even though it still was impossible to spot the difference). I even went to work the next day and nobody commented on it so I guess the redness was mostly gone. When the days went by the dots on my head faded a bit every day. Now, a week after the treatment the SMP has perfectly blended into my own hair making it thicker. However, you can still see a bit of my own scalp on the places I didn't have any hair on. Now, when I look in the mirror I look so much younger, I look my own age. And the SMP gives a nice frame to my fave. I also think that the SMP covered a bit off the odd shape of my head by giving my head or face a "frame". Sam is really talented at SMP and also easy to get along with so I am more than happy I chose him. I really hope this helps you guys in the countries nearby or why not further away too! Kr, Finnish guy
Darightmix posted a topic in SMP Common RoomSo I had my firth treatment last Thursday and today is Tuesday. I ask my practitioner when I can return to the gym he said after 4 days. Well today is the 5th day and I went to the gym I don't really sweat heavily when I work out I only worked out for maybe about 40 minutes. But then my paranoia started to kick in about how long should I actually wait to workout. So I came on here and it says wait to workout after 10 days but then it says don't sweat excessively after 10 days I would say I have a little bit to moderate sweat. So is it okay for me to work out or should I wait the max of 10 days. Please help me because now im worried that I possibly messed up
Hello Everybody! I've been browsing these forums for quite some time now and what i've seen and read so far, really put the hook in me. I'm more than intrigued by the thought of a permanent sollution to hairloss, namely SMP. I've even had a short E-Mail consultation with ####, who was super friendly and informative and gave me good info and the possible cost of a treatment. I'm a 25 y/o male from Switzerland, and i have to count vanity as one of my sins. I've always been someone who likes to fight adversity, and hairloss is no different. Many People claim it is an uphill battle, which you are destined to lose. I agree to some extent. But seeing the results of some of my fellow posters is proof that you CAN win against silly genetics while looking young & fresh. In my attached pictures you can see that i have a mixture of diffuse hairloss and regular one (brighter spots at the back of my head). I've had a FUE Hair transplant done (hairline c.a 1200 follicels or something) with a great surgeon, virtually no scarring and good results. But i know that this is only temporary, and Finasteride will only hold back further hairloss for a limited ammount of time. But seriously, those hormone altering drugs are a pain in the behind and i hate taking them. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Also: I hate hair, i dont like the way it feels, i dont like the way it distracts from my sport. Now i like to ask any of you this: 1: How will my FUE factor in on getting an NATURAL looking SMP done? (I can't stress NATURAL enough, its the most important thing.. a Natural, jagged hairline and a natural brigthness, im REALLY affraid of blue dots on my head) 2: Can my FUE Hairline even be of some benefit to the SMP treatment? (i.e blending it in, or using it as a more realistic hairline?) 3: Or will it hinder a good outcome? 4: Has one of you a similar story to mine, or knows someone that does? I'm looking forward to your answers! Have a great day. -2limbo
