    Default My SMP Journey

    Hey guys!

    Here's my story (in a nutshell):

    I'm a 36 year old male from Canada. I first started experiencing male pattern baldness since I was about 24-25 years old, but because I've started shaving my head (voluntarily) since I was 18, it was never really an issue for me. Part of it is because my dad had the same issue, I know this was going to be my destiny.

    A good friend of mine came to me about a year ago with the whole SMP treatment thing, which I thought was bogus at first. After seeing his 2nd treatment, however, I was blown away. However, at this point, I didn't feel the need to spend the money for myself as it was not a problem for me.

    However, a few short months later, I started noticing that the receding at the crown was so bad to the point where the horseshoe is very visible even after a fresh shave (as seen attached). This is with Schick Hydro 5 blade shaved against the grain

    Here are some pics taken 4 days after my 1st SMP treatment (with hair growth for about the same # of days).

    What you will notice is that the density needs some work; this is as expected from a 1st treatment. The emphasis from this treatment is to define the hairline and outline where density needs to be applied in the subsequent treatments.

    Redness was noticeable for the first 1-2 days, and subsided heavily after that. The SMP dots will shrink over the next few days.

    I went for my 2nd SMP treatment 7 days after my first initial treatment. The focus today was to apply more density around the crown as well as the top of my head.

    Here's a pic taken a day after this session.

    It appears to be a lot darker than the last post you saw; keep in mind that a lot of it will fade. Redness is not as bad as after my first treatment (I guess my scalp got used to it)

    And here's a pic I took earlier today under natural lighting. This is taken 10 days after my 2nd SMP treatment.

    Overall, the journey thus far have been amazing. I am looking to wait another 45 days to go for my 3rd treatment. This is all dependent on how the ink fades from here till now.

    The practitioner focused on adding more density to the top and crown area, as well as refining/blending from the temple.
