Default SMP Pics

The first pic is pre (w/ flash), the second post 1 pass (also with flash). The third pic was taken at home (post 2 sessions, sans flash. I will get more pics from Dr. Feller when I visit him next week, and I will also take some outdoor shots....

Thus far I am really very pleased!

Thanks guys! This procedure will be huge for guys with diffuse thinning, limited donor supplies, etc. My brother has had no HT work done and it worked out very well for him. I am very excited about the possibilities....

I will continue to update with more pics soon.

Yup, yup!

But it says session 1 on that pic. So how many sessions are needed or recommended for this?

I see thnx.
Is that the norm and recommended number of sessions to get the colour right?
Sorry for all the questions but I'm new to this SMP thing. It looks very good and promising for us depleted heads

Also how much does this typical procedure cost (2 sessions total)?

feelz, The 2nd session is like a touch up. She goes back and fills in between the previous days' work. She normally does two sessions and told us that a third session possibly a month later would be optimal. The 2-3 sessions are all included in one price I believe. Not really sure on pricing.

thats what is so promising about temporary smp, for guys with advanced hair loss , depleted donars, n new guys, you can fill front half with grafts , and have a combo of grafts and smp to the crown. since there is only a finite amount of grafts available .your case looks amazing, and i know jotronic and spex had temporary smp work done as well.so its good to know that there is another option on the table.
