I first started losing my hair in my early twenties. After a short and sad experimentation with finasteride, I accepted the inevitable and shaved my head. Within a year I no longer thought about my receding hairline. After all, it was barely noticeable, and I was lucky enough to have a well-formed skull. The years passed. One day I realized I no longer had any hair at all in the front. I switched from clippers to wet-shaving to minimize the embarrassing shadow.
Fast-forward to age thirty-nine. I have been shaving my head every three or four days for almost twenty years now. After my failed finasteride experience years ago, I have given up on any kind of baldness treatment. After all, I am a man, and a man must accept hard realities without complaint. Baldness is my cross to bear. Through pure chance I stumble across an article about scalp micropigmentation. I had no idea such a treatment existed. It didn't take me long to make my decision. I like the way I look with a shaved head. What I dislike is simply the absence of a hairline that would form an upper frame to my face. Since I already shave my head regularly, SMP requires no change to my routine other than more frequent shaves.
I contacted the Vinci Clinic in France where I live. They quoted me a price of 2500 euros. Too expensive. After all, this is just a tattoo. I expanded my search and found the website of the Scalpmann Clinic in Warsaw. The photos on their website indicated a skilled technician. I wrote and within a short time I received a response from Krysztof Reczynski, who quoted me a price of about 900 euros after looking at photos of my scalp. This was within my budget. As I lived nearby, it was no problem to take a couple of cheap flights to Warsaw.
As for the results -- they are excellent. I tell everyone I meet that half of my head is tattooed and they cannot see the difference. I don't care if people know I had the treatment done. I just wanted my hairline back.
I am one hundred percent happy with the results. I can't believe how much better I look. Until I got this treatment I believed that I had accepted my baldness when really I had simply convinced myself that it no longer bothered me. The moment I realized I could get my hairline back, I knew I had to do it. I look and feel much better. Looking through old photos, I realize that for the last fifteen years I have been cocking my head so that my bald crown is invisible. I wasn't doing it on purpose. But I was doing it.
Caveat...even though the results are indistinguishable from real hair, I would only recommend the treatment if you are OK with people knowing you had it done. Not because they will notice -- in my experience, they won't -- but because you will probably be paranoid all the time, especially when women touch your head. And although you can get away with a shave every 48 hours, it's better to shave every day.
