Just over Two weeks since my consultation in Manchester , 2 of the longest weeks I’ve known
Anyway today is my fist session
Had a long chat on the phone last night with
HA HO HE HERTHA BSC
Thanks Martin for talking to me and helping me feel at ease
Thought I would have been nervous
But I’m not
I’ve had test patch done so sort of know what to expect
Just setting off for the train now
Only 45 mins Wigan to Manchester , but want to have some breakfast and a bit of me time first
Damon get that kettle on and keep it on
I’m a right tea belly

That’s the spirit Markyb. Enjoy your day and enjoy the process. You have to be patient but in a few weeks when you have had you treatments you will look great.26/02/2014 at 3:08 pm #29103
Well that’s session 1 done.
Went very well
Hurt a bit in places but nothing you can’t cope with
My scalp started to break a bit due to dry skin
Probably caused by psoriasis
Damon put Vaseline on and it was ok
I bled a bit but nothing major
What a difference it makes, once the hairline is created
It’s like looking at a different person
Damon said once redness added it will look a bit sparse
But dong worry
It’s the 2 nd session where it comes together
He puts 2 or 3 dots to every one he did today
I’m back in next Wednesday at 9am
Providing my scalp is ok
Oh and Damon makes a wicked cup of tea as well26/02/2014 at 3:11 pm #29104
My spellings awfull in this phone keypad
Meant to say once redness faded
And don’t worry not dong worry26/02/2014 at 6:16 pm #29105shed7Participant
Sounds like everything went to plan Markyb. I no that the skin condition is very important so glad you were able to go ahead. Hope it’s ok for your next treatment too.26/02/2014 at 9:02 pm #29107
Next Wednesday is session 2
Damon going to ring me on Monday to see how I am
Can’t wash or moisturise till Sunday night so will have to see how bad skin is , or if it’s caused my psoriosis to flair up.
I think 4 days without moisture won’t be good for me , but hopefully once I start again it will be ok
I’m trying not to look in mirror as it’s red and big dots and Damon said its session 2 that the magic starts, but I can’t stop looking at the hairline that’s been missing for years
Over 10 yrs of constantly wearing my hat. And now I feel like I can get my life back very soon26/02/2014 at 9:57 pm #29108m41Participant
Excellent to hear you are on your way.
Hope that your skin holds out Markyb.
Agree to just ignore the first treatment and it’s true the 2nd and 3rd treatments are where it’s at.27/02/2014 at 1:10 pm #29116
Not as red today. Can’t stop looking in the mirror.
I said I wasn’t going to do that but can’t help it . It’s making me smile seeing an hairline again
Can’t wait for session 2. Roll on next Wednesday27/02/2014 at 2:26 pm #29118TonyCParticipant
I have been pretty good with staying out of the mirror. I no what you mean about the hairline bringing a smile to your face. Just looking forward to more dots so it can match my own hair more but I no that will come on the next treatment. Good luck with your 2nd.27/02/2014 at 9:52 pm #29121HA HO HE HERTHA BSCParticipant

Martin , did Damon get hold of you??
He said he was going to try contact you
I told him we had spoken on the phone01/03/2014 at 9:54 am #29124
Wash scalp , shave and moisture tomorrow
Can’t wait ,
Looking a mess at moment as stubble is growing
Hopefully scalp isn’t too bad
2nd session on Wednesday , so only 3 days to get it in tip top condition01/03/2014 at 10:00 am #29125
Any tips on how to shave it
Got. R91 at moment
Do I do it as I normally do
Or us it best to just tickle it over scalp while it’s first time after treatment01/03/2014 at 7:06 pm #29126Dave1981Participant
Hi Marky, yeah just shave as normal, but don’t go to hard, bet your looking forward to your 2nd session hopefully your head is in good condition02/03/2014 at 6:25 pm #29128
well just shaved for 1st time since session 1 4 days ago
was worried but it went ok
used r91. it was plucking a bit on sides were hair is still growing strong,
when i came to the top. (were i had most smp ) i did it very gently.
i then rinsed head with luke warm water ( no soap / shampoo ) and i wet a face cloth and gently patted scalp all over ,
then i use e45 lotion
all seem ok so far
psoriasis does not seem to have attacked my head so far , in fact only had a bit of dryness on scalp. well i think so
damon ringing me tomorrow to see how I’ve got on before session 2 this wednesday, if scalp is 2 bad he can’t continue till its clear
should i now wash scalp and shave / moisture everyday now till wednesday or should i leave it for next couple of days
think I’m going to treat myself to a new shaver once its all finished. i bought the r91 a couple of weeks ago just to get used to using it
is it better to get rotary or foil shaver
seen a lot of people saying the remmington r6150 is good, but its discontinued and don’t fancy buying off ebay
im liking the look of hairline but needs a lot of filling in which i believe will be on session 2
