12 Month update
Here I am at the 12 month mark, the stage we are told to wait for the final result. Well one thing I can say since my last update is there has definitely been a change in the density and feel of my hair, visually there may not be much difference but when I run my fingers through it, it feels thicker and more dense.
I am more than happy with the result, I was lucky that I had great growth from around the 3 month mark and got better and better each month. I no cinik is a hairmill and I agree with many reviews I’ve read over the past year, especially the time Dr Cinik spends with you pre surgery (5-10 mins max) is not great when you look back but I would not change anything. Maybe I was the lucky one and got the best technicians on the day, if I remember rightly there was 3 of us getting the procedure done the day I was in, although I did pay extra for cinik to do they incisions. My current regime is 0.5mg fin every day, biotin and collagen supplements, I have also been micro needling with the derma-pen once every 2 weeks for the past 4 months or so, and I feel this has definitely helped my mid scalp area which was quite thin when I look back at early pictures. I have also been using serioxyl hair denser with stemoxydine after every wash.
I would like to thank the forum members for there support and especially the education, as I have learnt a lot whether it be ht topics, medications, types of clinics you name it. I thought I had researched thoroughly before I took the plunge, but I did not find this forum until later so I guess not, but luckily I wasn’t butchered, hairline looks fine (all single grafts) and most importantly I am happy. It has definitely changed my life, as I’ve said before the compliments never stop and I frequently get asked where I went by other interested friends.... they are surprised when I tell them it maybe better to look elsewhere, as I explain how it is the luck of the draw who works on you that day, and that they may not be as lucky as me and there better off with doctors that do most of the work.
