I have battled with hair loss for years, since a young lad. I looked into Hair Transplants, I used Regaine, I took tablets, I literally tried everything. I almost started to accept my bald head, in particular the horse shoe aka “monkeys arse” Thats not to say I liked it, in fact quite the opposite.
I came across Skalp from an advert on Instagram, I looked and dismissed it to be honest, after reading all the negative posts about failed hair transplants I thought this was just another pipe dream. Photoshopping is easily done and I thought that it was another case of creative photography! Eventually, I checked the Skalp website out, there was a section where you could send a photo in and they would mock the treatment. I thought what the hell, if anything it would be good to see what I would look like with hair! I sent my photo and a few hours later the ‘future me’ was looking right at me. I loved the photo, but i didn’t think there was a cat in hells chance i could possibly look like that…. Again instant dismissal.
You know when something keeps nagging in your mind?. I spent hours trawling through the websites, eventually I asked my fiancé and she said I should see for myself. With her approval I rang and booked an appointment for a Skalp consultation.
I got off the tube at Oxford circus, phone in hand directing me to Harley Street. I wasn’t nervous, as to be honest I had low expectations. It must have been 15 minutes into the consultation when I said “I want to see someone with the treatment” I couldn’t believe it when he said “your talking to one!” I asked if I could stay and watch the first few minutes of a guys treatment I had met whilst in the waiting area. (Thank you to you whoever you were for letting me watch)
Two things struck me. 1) How open Skalp were, I felt comfortable, I trusted them. 2) It looked incredible.
I remember phoning up and paying my deposit and thinking “good god this is real!” My appointment was booked and I had 3 weeks to wait, which dragged like hell by the way! I had booked in with Jason, I saw Jason on the Channel 4 Documentary, so I felt super comfortable with him carrying it out.
Fast forward to Tuesday 9th February 12.00pm I am sat in he chair, I can honestly say I wasn’t nervous, it was 1000% excitement. The hairline was designed and Jason began the procedure. I wouldn’t even say it was uncomfortable, its quite relaxing. Honestly after 4 hours it did get a little sore but by this time you pretty much have a hair line so your so happy you don’t really care. He could have used a fork by the 4th hour I was that happy!
After my first session, I am absolutely over the moon, I genuinely can not believe how good it looks. I am constantly looking in the mirror to check its still there! Its like a dream!
I went back into work the next day, I have worked with my team for over 10 years, we are friends outside of work too. Not one of them noticed! It was 2.30pm when I just couldn’t keep it in and told them. They were absolutely amazed, genuine shock.
I am back in next Tuesday 16th for my 2nd treatment! I literally cant wait!
This is not a post to convince you to get it done, its such a personal thing and you have to be comfortable in whatever you decide. This is just my journey up to and including the first session! I will update you after my 2nd and third.
So far so so so good. Service first class & procedure looks incredible. Even my old man, who to be honest can be a miserable sod said “jesus christ it looks just like hair!!” That was good enough for me!13/02/2016 at 4:42 pm #32188ken millerParticipant
I had my whole head done, and have been thrilled with the results as well.
