The ink approximately will last for about 2 years,this could vary depending on a number of factors,protecting from the sun,chlorine etc etc.

A procedure like this would cost anywhere from $1600 Euros or 2K +

So natural. If you keep it at that length, no one would ever detect it. Congrats.

Looks very natural.

That really is a nice result. Interestingly I had 2 patients come in yesterday asking about SMP and I referred them to this thread.

Its important for the facts to get out there about SMP. One of the patients essentially thought you could "tattoo on a full head of hair" based on marketing they had seen elsewhere.

SMP will not replace medicine or surgery, but rather is another tool in the armamentarium against hairloss. So far, I think its really ideal for guys like this, scar concealment (Spex is a perfect example), and I'm hopeful that it will offer improvement for both thinning crowns (when there is limited donor hair likely to be used elsewhere) and possibly women.

Like any tool, it will have its limitations, you can't saw with a hammer for example, and its exciting to be on the forefront of this new technology.
