    Default How thin will Norwood scale 6 look with hair transplant?

    My donor site is fairly thick. Pale skin and auburn hair.

    Pictures would be a good help... I know it's an approximation but I am just wondering if it is feasible for me. I am doing acting now and it's important for me when I become professional.

    If the transplant will look too thin/obvious I will just get a bunch of painful lasers because I can't stand the 5 o'clock shadow that is very obvious about 6 hours after shaving every day.

    Thanks--

    Hi Tom,

    Being that I was a NW6, the only procedure that ever worked on me was with Dr. Sanusi Umar. I was able to maximize the amount of hair transplanted because he used not only my head hair, but beard and body hair as well. That expands ones donor supply in a vast way. I don't think that a NW6 can be restored solely from head hair.


    Good luck!

    I think the next major step we are going to see and its starting to happen now, is smp in conjunction with a hair transplant. Smp can make 2k grafts look like 3k. It can provide a thickening effect similar to many concealers. Meaning as long as you have some decent amount of hair it can make you look like you have a full head. Also you instead of going from a NW6 to NW2 you could go to a NW 3

    Dark hair on pale skin and NW6 will always equal thin. The question you should ask, and the issue you should be concerned with, is if it will look natural. Thinning hair is natural and if you have enough of it you can make it look like a lot more than you really have. Yes, it is a vague answer, but it is a vague question.
