Hi all, been looking into this and thinking for ages. Skalp would be my choice from all I’ve seen but my big concern is that some of the treatments look good, Like a proper shaved head. Some others that are on the website and even on here posting pictures about how happy they are, just look painted on the head. Does anyone now why this is? Does it depend on how much hair you have originally or just luck of the draw etc? It’s a big gamble and just don’t really get why some look good and some not good at all? Any comments appreciated.

Its totally subjective and you need to rein in the judgements pal. People dont go down this route with ease. Its a big decision. One that very few ever regret. In fact i havent read one person who regrets having SMP. Skalp are artists and they listen to the personal needs of the clients. Each person has different requests and its down to you to decide what you want. If you want a strong and high density coverage, thats something you need todiscuss at a consultation, if you want a softer and broken hairline, you’ll probably have a more natural look. It depends what you’re after. Go for a consultation and bring examples of the type of SMP treatments that you DO like. The point is this. Each person has different views on what is and what isn’t good, what’s important is that you find a clinic that can bring those dreams to life. Find me someone on here who doesn’t believe skalp have donethat for them. Then come back and tell me some look painted on. Photos dont do ANY treatment justice. You HAVE to see them in person at a consultation to really understand.29th August 2017 at 8:11 am #32883
I’m on here to make a judgement, that’s the whole point! Also like many people thinking about having the treatment, it’s because I see photo’s of myself and aren’t always happy with what I see looking back, so if the procedure doesn’t look good in photo’s that’s another consideration in the process I guess. Thanks for the feedback though, some useful points to consider.29th August 2017 at 1:45 pm #32884
So you come on here saying that peoples SMPs look like they’re painted on, yet thats the one insecurity you have about getting it done? Do you not see the irony? Anyway, all that aside, go for a consultation. The practioners will honestly put ur mind at rest and answer all your questions… Best of all it’s free and you can try a skin test to ease any worries. If you want a natural look, just tell them that… They’ll get you a stunning soft hair line that fades seamlessly into any hair u may/may not have… Dont hesitate to ask more questio s because I’ve blasted you for your approach, we’re all aware of the concerns when considering this procedure, so just ask away and we’ll answer in the best way we can…
Peace.29th August 2017 at 6:56 pm #32885
If after you have completed your reasearch and have met with the practitioners at Skalp you still feel the treatment looks ‘painted’ on, then this treatment my friend is not for you.
All I can advise is, ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ and certainly not until you’ve seen it for yourself in the flesh. A picture can tell a thousand words, some you will agree with, some not so.
Book an appointment and I promise you, you will go ahead with this treatment; your only wish will be that you hadn’t stumbled upon it years ago.
Let us know how you get on; we’re all anxious to see how you get on, oh and good luck, your journey starts here.30th August 2017 at 12:09 pm #32886
There are some terrible pictures of ‘helmet heads’ out there, IMO the industry should aim to eliminate these images, they are ‘old school’ treatments using out of date techniques.
Not a single person has even looked twice at me, let alone called me out. Remember as well, people tend to post fresh treatments, after 3/4 months it settles down.30th August 2017 at 12:11 pm #32887
I researched practitioners extensively, for the look I wanted Marcin (manchester) closely followed by Dean were the best globally (I would have travelled, trust me). They dont know how good they actually are.30th August 2017 at 1:39 pm #32888
You can’t go off just photos mate, a lot of the photos posted on this forum are taken straight after treatment, so look red and will look a lot different and better once they have settled down, you really need to go and see it in person. plus some people ask for dark and high density treatments, it’s like a haircut, you will never like every hairstyle, this treatment is customised to each person, if you want soft and natural that’s what you can get especially at skalp as they specialise in natural looking treatments, to be honest until I saw how skalp can make a treatment look so natural I would of been put off with some of the treatments you see online.30th August 2017 at 3:02 pm #32892
I can honestly say that not one person has realised I’ve had the treatment done since I went through with the treatment last month.30th August 2017 at 9:55 pm #32896
Thanks a lot guys for the responses. Very helpful1st September 2017 at 4:34 pm #32898
I think the difference between those that are painted v those that aren’t is quite simple. The painted one’s tend to be quite dark and are dense (ie loads of dots close together). The more subtle ones are lighter in shade and dots are less dense. In addition hairline is broken. The Manc guys r v v good at doing the soft subtle ones.1st September 2017 at 9:47 pm #32899
Hi Baldlegaleagle, Thanks for that and yes that makes sense and ring’s true with my research. Marcin seems to do my favourite work I think. The Guy Michael who has a thread on here looks very genuine and another guy posting on his thread also does. So I guess it’s Marcin I’ll be talking too. Still such a big step though, I have agreed one (horseshoe at back) but softened by some some FUE that has given me a hairline and some hair across the crown. Going to a grade zero and no hair at all still seems like a big step, a big change. Pretty daunting stuff.
