Hi. I had my SMP done around fifteen months ago. Before that, like you, I wore dermatch to give the shaved head. Like your picture shows it did a job and not one person said a thing. However, I can’t tell you how much better SMP is. The freedom it brings you just can’t appreciate. I can’t believe how restricted I felt by dermatch and paranoid of how it looked, constantly checking the mirror, worried about sweating, raining etc.
I was convinced everyone would know when I had my SMP done. When I saw how much better it looked, even after session 1, I was sure they must as it looked so much better. However, I went to a family party 48 hrs and no one said a thing. Not parents, siblings, friends nobody. Then to this day no one has ever said a thing. Enjoy your life is about to get so much better

Hi. I had my treatment down nearly a year ago now. To this day the only people I told were my Wife, Mum and Dad. I was convinced everyone would know but wasn’t one of these people that feel they could just be open about it. I felt that it may affect my confidence if people know. However no one has said a thing, like everyone here I don’t understand how but they don’t. I just don’t get the bald jokes anymore I used to get. It is amazing what it has done for confidence and I just forget how tough it was before. I sometimes catch old pictures and can’t believe how different i felt then to now. I honestly don’t think anyone will know looking at your pics. They will just assume you felt it was time to shave your head and you will just be complimented on it
I fully understand your post. I remember being thrilled when I paid my deposit and then the fear kicked in. I had sleepless nights, I went through every scenario. I was convinced it would look awful. So I considered backing out, as you say £250 I was prepared to right it off. However, the things kept coming back into my mind about how unhappy I was, how my confidence had gone and would I every truly be able to stop being obsessed by watching SMP videos. So I took the plunge. I was so nervous on the day. However I’m now four months post treatment and the affect that it has had on my life has been life changing. I have been thrilled with the results and actually don’t know what is and isn’t hair.
It has to be your choice as is a big thing, but i now shudder when I think I almost dropped out of doing it. As I say it’s your decision but I felt compelled to reply as it brought back memories of my emotions. The guys at Skalp are amazing. They knew I was bricking it on the day but I remember finishing my first treatment leaving and just walking. I didn’t even know if it was in the right direction but I didn’t care as felt this weight lifted off of my shoulders.
If you want to ask any specific questions feel free to leave me your email address and I can send some contact details. Happy to send pics etc just haven’t been one for putting on here.
Looks amazing, congratulations. Thanks for the doing the video I remember exactly where I was when I first saw your video and was the finally push I needed as your results looked so good. I’m around four months since completed now and loving it. Can’t believe the improvement in everyday life and much it had affected me
Hi Terri. Good for you. I am not a woman but have had the treatment and honestly can’t see what can go wrong for you. It will just provide you so much more density and I’m sure that will provide a huge boost in confidence. Can’t express how much easier it has made my life and don’t have a single regret (except not doing it sooner). Good luck enjoy the journey and the new you
I haven’t posted my results on here but had my treatment end of 2015. 18 months before I had my first consultation. Then spent that time reading the forum and watching the videos, loving what I saw but couldn’t pluck up the nerve to do it. Now I have I am one of those ‘why did I wait that time’ people but easy to say now. It is the best thing I have done and happy to answer any questions. If you wanted to put any details on here for me to contact you I can get in touch and show you some pics and answer any questions
Yep really pleased couldn’t be happier. I had my final treatment a month ago and really pleased. I am a bit of an exercise junkie so have been training regularly.
You can certainly over think things and over worry (I did). I chatted with the guys at skalp about what I had planned training wise and we just went through what to do and not to do. They are top guys and answer all your questions
I was advised to avoid heavy sweating for five days. I decided to leave a week, so did nothing between treatment 1 and 2. Then went back to running one week after treatments 2 and 3. Also told to avoid swimming for one month after treatment 3
Great tip really appreciate your feedback from people who have tried these things. What do you do about SPF protection I think you said your Peter Thomas Roth included SPF?
Yep it was London. Great guys. It is a really big decision and I took ages over it. Now not sure why I took so long but easy to say now. I’m sure a shaved head would suit you and seems you have a lot of hair. If you haven’t already get a mock up done as gives you a good indication. I was so picky on it being as natural as possible and they really listened to me on that and worked with me
Hi coconut head I have seen you discuss both the wahl balding clippers and the bald eagle. I use r91 from Remington but thinking of purchasing one of the above. I’m thinking the bald eagle but thought would see if you or anyone has a view?
Obviously a personal decision but I was one of those looking into it for ages. It took me 18 months to finally have the treatment done. Have had two sessions and so pleased I did! I didn’t really have grey hairs but the shortness it is razored too will make it all blend anyway so I assume wouldn’t be noticeable
