One year past.... Had final treatment...

Recommended Posts

So one years gone by since my first treatment. I had four relatively quickly into it starting last January. After the fourth treatment I figured I'd let things settle for the year and not rush in for a consultation. I've posted previously with pictures and how my experience went and who was all involved in my sessions so I won't rehash it all but thanks to all for bringing me along and doing a great job and for all the great advice. These guys really care about their work! So I went for the end-of-the-year consultation in Los Angeles and I met with Zang. Gave me advice about shaving techniques took a look at my treatments and he decided to give it one short session darken it up just a bit so the pictures I've attached is four days after the treatment was completed and just after a light shave as I didn't want to shave Heavy after the last session. My experience with the company's been nothing but positive. I'm super happy with the results , take a look for yourself And let me know what you think. Zang said I really didn't need a fifth but he did say that he could complement my previous four treatments. I feel he went above and beyond and thanks again for a wonderful experience. Also I've had issue with a little razor burn, Zang gave me some great advice on how to deal with it and products to use. To have this done isn't cheap, but the fact that they took their time went above and beyond went out of their way to accommodate me and to educate me made the whole thing worthwhile and quite pleasant..... Glad my hair loss issue is at an end.... Wish I could've had it done in my 20s or 30s but It wasn't around . take care fellas any questions be more than happy to answer!! John C up in San Fran did first 3 ! Brilliant Artist. Zang did final 2 !! Oh one last thing, I'm not the best photographer ... Can redo if any came out funky !

anyway must say congratulations!! and thank you for sharing your experience -Grateful i live close to the LA suite!!

zang's passion for this really stood out!! after researching i can see why "his" sent him across the pond!! i hope they don't send him back anytime soon!!

I will be in the hot seat in the next few weeks - im excited but i would be lying if i didn't say im also a little nervous lol which im sure is normal!?!

@ Westside. hey bro to answer your question about if anyone has noticed it, the answer is no, even my girlfriend of a year now hasnt pegged it, shes said several times ' why dont you grow it out you have so much'. I'll eventually tell her if we last! Saw 2 brothers who i hadnt seen in a year and a half at christmas at some country club full of people, only thing my brothers said was wow, look at that clean dome, lol, you shaved your head. no other scrutiny or questions period, walked around the club sporting my smp, not one person near or far gave me the time of day! Remember, a big part of this is that you know! so you'll always think about it, but ive had not one person in a year question, or stare period. If you wore a rug on your head, you'd be paranoid cause you know its a rug.... youll learn to live with that feeling, btw.. this is much more natural than a hair piece ! After your done, lose the hat, hit the mall and go walk around, take your smp out in the wild, youll become very comfortable fast, at least thats how it went for me.Let us know how it goes, your in good hands with Los Angeles office brother... take care....enjoy

Now that's a natural looking hairline there. Most other guys seem to opt for hardest, straightest and most obviously fake hairline possible and I will never understand why. 

I'm thinking of doing the straight line, so it looks like I came right out of the barber shop with a nice tape up.

Do what makes you feel good. My only gripe is with those who are 40 yrs old and have a tapered hairline of a 17 yr old. It just looks so obviously fake.

All you have to understand is that everyone has their own goal from this procedure. From extremes like that latest video, I think his name is Arri, who's treatment is so light it's barely there. To the other extreme, not SMP, but that French porn actor with his head completely tattooed black. Most everyone else falls somewhere in between.

 

Some guys like yourself want something that looks as natural as possible. Others want a little more pizazz to it. Some guys want to look their age, others would like to look younger.

 

In the end as long as each individual is happy that's what counts.

 

I've seen a lot of debate on here on what the best way to get SMP should be, or the "only" way you should do it and such.

 

There really is no need for that. Get it how you want it and respect the way others choose to get theirs. We are all after happiness about our baldness and we'll all get that different ways.

Agreed, but I do think it is necessary for someone to point out that some hairlines look very fake and unnatural.

Sure, there are definitely some hairlines that will grab attention more than others. Do they look fake? Maybe..in the sense that they look like they didn't originally belong on that particular head. Unnatural? I can't agree with that as I see all kinds of hairlines occurring naturally.

 

And again if that's what the recipient wanted and is happy with, then so be it.

Sorry Fellas, been gone for awhile, to answer the question of what Norwood i was, i was a 7, im older, mid 50's, i chose the appropriate hairline for an older Gent, a block look would of been poor choice for me, if your in your 20z maybe, i tryed to be realistic about it. i posted first treatment pics for comparison on a different thread, but im can say the top is all smp, wasnt 100 bald, but close to it. so a before pic wasnt needed. Still to date no one has said a thing. to the bro who asked about zangs advice for aftercare and shaving, Use a shaving oil preshave, good prep, and aloe based after shave, non alcohol base, and day after shave, i shave everyother day most of the time, exfoliate scalp to remove dead shin with warm wash cloth, keep burn and bumps away. Basically, prep well for shave, use good products, cleaning scalp next day stopped all bumps ! But bumps were minimal to begin with.
