Hi forum, would really like to share my Skalp experience with you all as I come to the end of my journey. Hope you enjoy reading it.
I’m 31 now, but have been losing my hair since I was in my mid twenties and have always been in denial! It was a very slow process so not sure as to when I really accepted that I TOM AM A BALD MAN! Anyway about a year ago I started researching the options and reported to Harley Street for a hair transplant consultation! It was a nightmare, the consultant (with a bad transplant himself) made me feel really ugly, put cling film on my head coloured it in a bit, drew on my scalp then quoted my £9000. I went shopping immediately afterwards to try a little retail therapy only to notice in a shop mirror that he hadn’t even bothered to clean the felt tip off my forehead properly. Nice one mate.
This put me off all treatment options for over a year until one day feeling very bald one day decided to research the options once again and discovered SMP and Skalp clinic!
I met with Marcin in Manchester who is quite the character! Rushing about with his suitcase, Polish accent and Beckham-esque looks, he made me feel completely at ease. He allowed me to examine his treatment and gave me a no bullshit explanation of the treatment.
3 Treatments later I am delighted with the results. Despite his slightly chaotic and sometimes comical demeanour, Marcin is the absolute professional when it comes to the treatment, both an artist and a perfectionist! It was such a relief to have found a practitioner that seemed to care about the results as much as me.
As a soldier in the British Army, I knew the results had to be spot on as they would come under very close scrutiny from my buddies who I live and work with on a daily basis and trust me the lads are not shy of giving a thoroughly good ribbing! So far the reaction has been remarkable! I have had to confess my secret only to my best friend who is a fellow baldy. Sitting in the mess hall one night surrounded by my colleagues under very strong lighting, I looked up from my dinner only to see his outstretched hand reaching across the dining table heading straight for my scalp!! I realised it was best at this point to pull him aside after dinner and fess up! 100+ questions later, he is now booked in for a consultation with Skalp on Friday!
I’ve attached my before and after results below, I’m more than happy to answer any questions about my treatment or meet up in the Birmingham/West Midlands area with anyone who is considering the treatment.
Just like to finish off by saying a MASSIVE ‘Thank you’ to both Marcin whose work I endorse 100% and Skalp who offer a fantastic service. I feel great 🙂
All the best guys, thank you for reading!19/11/2014 at 4:18 pm #30290Baldy01Participant
Looking fantastic BaldSoldier. Amazing what difference a hairline makes.
Wait until it settles down it will look fantastic.19/11/2014 at 9:35 pm #30293tomo85Participant
Bald Soldier….the results look fantastic..you look completely different …spot on mate. Bet you are so pleased. So good to see more happy customers. I am booked in for January and generally feeling positive about it…but there are always the niggling doubts. Tom20/11/2014 at 8:56 am #30294DoctorMartenParticipant
tomo85 I can assure you that I had niggling doubts, but kept seeing positive after positive treatments like the one above and in the end you have to decide. It will be the best thing you do. It has literally changed my life.22/11/2014 at 6:40 pm #30296Bald SoldierParticipant
Agreed DoctorMarten, not being perceived as a baldy anymore is a great feeling. It really is a great weight off my back.
Tomo85, congratulate yourself on the fact that you have found a company who are actually in the business of quality and professional treatments in an industry full of uncertainty. Its great to be diligent but there comes a point where you just have to go ahead and take the plunge. You wont regret it I’m sure.
Thanks so much guys for the positive feedback 🙂26/11/2014 at 2:32 pm #30307GreenGrassParticipant
The difference a hairline makes to you. You look much younger.27/11/2014 at 6:29 pm #30309
Thank you so much Tom.30/11/2014 at 4:24 pm #30315CurlyParticipant
Looking great. Hairline is what makes the difference and it frames your face to make you look younger and much better in my opinion.20/12/2014 at 11:22 am #30378Bull DogParticipant
Hi Bald Soldier. Your hair colour is very similar to mine and I see the treatment you have looks quite dark. Do you have any updated photos of how it looks now. You look great and it suits you. Thanks.08/01/2015 at 2:20 pm #30429
A better quality photo straight after The Soldiers last treatment 😉11/12/2015 at 10:45 pm #3210612/12/2015 at 1:57 am #3210713/12/2015 at 7:37 am #32109coconutheadParticipant
