Spex gets ATP ( Advanced Tricho Pigmentation ) to increase density !

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I recently received ATP ( Advanced Tricho Pigmentation ) into my old FUT

scars and also into my crown region to enable me to wear my hair shorter

and also increase the overall density of the donor region as well as thicken

up the appearance of my crown greatly.

 

Further information also with a video of the process and interview can be seen

here on the link below. I had the procedure performed in the UK at The Harley St Hair Clinic.

This technique will undoubtedly continue to help many hair loss patients thicken

up their hair and also aid the illusion of density with hair transplants greatly too.

 

Spex ATP procedure

 

I'm incredibly happy with the results !!

Any questions - please ask.

Regards

Spex

Hi Spex

 

Thanks for sharing that, this is something I've considered for the future but have only known about Smp. Is ATP perminent or do you still have to top it up every so often?

 

It would be great to see close up before and after photos if you have any?

 

Cheers

I looked into this option for a while but it was the safety side of it I mean the ink and if it can affect health etc that put me off ?

Hi RWE,

 

It will fade over time but much more permanent than SMP which i personally found didn't last long enough for me in the scar zone. Im working on the pics:cool:

Hi Rash,

Safety issues? Don't believe there are any to be too overly concerned over as all instruments and inks used are safe.:cool:

The cost varies depending on size and complexity of the session

 

Costs range from ?500-?3500 so very similar to SMP.

 

Strip scar ATP ?1000-1500

FUE Scar ATP ?1000- 1500

Hi guys,

Just waiting on HR pics but here are some in the meantime. These were taking dimmed before the ATP session and also dimmed after so you can still see ink residue. Roll on the summer when i do my buzz cut.

Heu spex. You've been around long enough I'm sure to have conserved the idea of Body hair into the donor. Did you ever give that serious consideration over pigmentation?

really no pain or discomfort? it's easier to take than a tattoo or anesthetic pricks during surgery?

 

its very nice work, and definitely a natural but noticeable change.

Jb,

 

Body hair in my opinion is highly inconsistent ( Ive spoken to countless guys who have attempted it with NO success ) and I'm not that hairy. :D

Steve,

 

Changing hair colour isn't really an issue but check with the technician if you decide to go down this route. Ive been inundated with emails and the most popular question is about GREY hair.

 

The base of a grey hair follicle is usually black at the root. The change to grey takes some time and as ATP itself fades over time we can adjust the amount of pigmentation applied. ATP lasts for around 4-7 years depending on skin type and itself is fading over time. When hair greys in the future and becomes more translucent an experienced technician would adjust the amount and coverage pattern to a very light effect to help blend in any future ATP top up with increased Grey hair.

 

The combination of knowledge and experience in how much pigment and shade to apply and what density and distribution is crucial to get the best result. Any concerns regarding future greying are best talked at the consultation stage with the clinic and if you are experiencing a fast change to grey hair, then a conservative ATP approach is more desirable to ensure the finished effect is natural and undetectable.

 

Overall advice is to start with a light ATP session as that helps assess how the skin reacts to pigment and also how the hair and ATP blend together before the session to finish the process.

 

Regards

Spex

You older dog! Great to hear from you - been a while. My reg is a secret and you need email me so i can charge you for the privilege. . .

 

Ive learnt to keep it simple. I now just take DUT 1x a day, HairFollic ( Vitabiotices ) 2 x a day, Biotin 1 x a day, omega 3 1x a day and was with HS daily and Nizoral 1 x a week.

 

I hope this helps amigo :cool:

Absolutely. Not too different from mine, although Joe Tillman had a video about Biotin and Omega-3 potentially do more harm than good. You off rogaine foam now too?

Hey,

 

No worries. Im off the rogaine now as after so many years on it felt that it had lost any affect.

 

Hope you are well!
