    Hi Guys, I am penciled in for my first on the 27th of this month. I am not at all nervous, just looking forward to the new life that this treatment seems to offer!

    The only issue I have if you can call it an issue is that I don’t clean shave my head or even take it all the way down, I keep a bit of length on it as I still have a fair bit of hair on top and even a hair line of sorts at the front! I have a bald crown and fairly light on top but I shave it tight on the sides and leave it a bit longer on top to create an illusion!

    Anyone else out there had similar thoughts?

    Also, a funny observation, I am not worried about seeing most of my friends after the procedure but I have a few baldy friends and I reckon they will twig straight away, I’ve not seen this issue brought up before! Lets face it, we all know if we have a bald mate and then he magically sprouts some killer follicles! Just a thought I had!

    Great forum, helped mw with my decision making process!


    Hi Scobiejoe ,
    Welcome to the forum!
    Nobody will notice what you have done unless you tell them .
    They will see you look different but won´t know what it is .
    You will have to take it in to get the best results .
    Don´t know how close you are wearing at the moment but if you have a couple of days growth it´s not going to look great!
    When your shaved to the bone you will look fantastic !
    Good luck with your treatment .
    You´re in safe hands !


    Without actually seeming pictures of your hair its hard to tell if you will need to wet shave.

    Personally I think everyone has to keep it close and tight for the best results.


    I have had two session done with Jason and I’m very impressed with the results. I think my hair line/scale would be between a Norwood 3v and a 4. I don’t like the wet shave look myself but it is so much easier to mange. I have wet shaved for a few years and I prefer the look the day after shaving just as some stubble comes back. My intention was to use clippers once I had had the SMP procedure. I brought the balding clippers and it took me quite a while to actually shave my hair plus I nicked myself a few times and managed to miss a few bits. It was a complete ball ache and took me about 20 minute plus and extras 5 minutes to clear up.

    I went back to wet shaving because its far quicker plus you tend not to miss bits. I try to shave in the evening because it gives you a 10/12 hours for the regrowth (if you have any) and by lunchtime the following day its not far off the look I like. Because I am not completely bald I actually leave mine a few days before shaving again and it look fine. That said its different for everyone, hair colour, how bald you are etc.

    Good luck with your treatment and I can assure you you’ll be looked after.


    Here are a few pics of the shortest I wear it!

    How do you guys think this will work for me? I’m booked in now anyway so what the hell!

    Cheers for the replies lads!
