19 Yr Old David’s Touching Story of Alopecia Treatment With Scalp Micropigmentation
At age 3, Hairline Ink client David Hernandez was diagnosed with alopecia areata, a condition that causes hair loss, which progressed gradually throughout his life. Although he knew about his alopecia early, it seemed to reach its worst condition during David’s senior year of high school, during which he lost a full head of hair over a relatively short period of time.
Luckily for David, Hairline Ink Chicago Practitioner, Michal “Magic Mike” Muszynski, enjoys treating patients with alopecia, as he sees it as a fresh canvas for his craft. Although we can’t help him get his long luscious locks back, Hairline Ink is proud to help David regain any self confidence lost from his condition, as he rocks his new look like a boss!
David came to Hairline Ink to “get a nice natural feel, be comfortable with who [he is], and to be able to walk outside without wearing a hat.” We think David is an awesome dude who deserves to look and feel as cool as he is. That’s why we made it our mission, here at Hairline Ink, to help victims of hair loss of all kinds to regain their confidence by giving them a completely natural look that is visually indistinguishable from their natural hair.
David: My name is David Hernandez; I’m 19; I’m from Palatine, Illinois. I first learned I had alopecia when I was about three. It’s gradually progressed to be a pretty severe form. It was okay up until, let’s say, high school. Probably senior year would be the worst. That’s when I lost almost all of it. I think the most difficult aspect was having really long thick hair, and then it all just going away.
What I’m hoping for here at Hairline Ink is to get a nice natural feel and to be comfortable with who I am and be able to walk outside without wearing a hat. After session one, my initial thoughts are, I think it looks great. It looks natural; it didn’t take that long; I expected to be here a lot longer. The pain level was bearable, it didn’t really hurt that much. It kinda tickled sometimes. I’m really excited, I wish it was tomorrow. (The second session) I can’t wait to see how it looks done and finished. It already looks great, I just can’t wait to see it completed. Mike was great, Hairline Ink is amazing. If you ever have any questions, just call them. They are honestly great people.
David: (to mike) Thanks man.
Mike: Next week we’ll go with number two session, so you see that’s when we’re going to add the density, you know what I mean?
Mike: David was an amazing kid; I know he’s struggling with alopecia areata, which is also known as spot balding. He was great. He was patient with the treatment. I enjoy doing alopecia more because you can basically get a fresh canvas. In case to David, where he had patches, it’s almost like having a puzzle with missing parts and you have to create those missing parts. To me, it’s not challenging; I love doing this. It’s a good challenge in a way, where I enjoy creating that piece of art on top of someone’s scalp.
David: Well basically, family members loved it. My dad was crazy happy. I showed my girlfriend, she was kinda confused. Definitely the best reaction had to be my boss. He loved it! When I first showed him he was giving me a hug, a high five.
I felt pretty good, I felt a lot more confident, I loved the way it looked. I could definitely go outside and not worry about my appearance.
I guess one of my hesitations was the price, maybe the pain. But it was all reasonable. I wanted a nice, clean, natural look; nothing artificial. Clearly it works; it makes you feel good; it’s not a waste of money. It’s going to be there forever. If you ever decide your hair is going to grow back, it’s easy to cover up. I guess my goal was to be able to be comfortable walking outside and showing the world what I have and this is definitely it.

I often find myself browsing through the pictures you have taken of all the customers because of the beauty and awesomeness you capture every time. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW HAPPY WE ARE! YOUR PHOTOS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, STUNNING..I COULD GO ON and ON!! Thank you again, especially for my Husband who can now Enjoy life without his hat! My husband is once again happy and not ashamed of himself anymore. Thank you So Much! One million Stars for you!!!!
Visiting hairline ink was an incredible experience. My technician showed incredible compassion towards me and I felt confident in his expertise from the moment we met. I had the unfortunate experience of having scar work done from a rival company. I was left with poor results and I felt that it was impossible to put an end to my nightmare. After only one session the scar was almost completely gone! I believe that Hairline Ink is the best in the business and I'm glad that I found them!
Never had a tattoo before and this was absolutely Amazing, I love my new SMP. They were the best, did a fantastic job and really care about their clients. They made me feel very comfortable and the communication was best. I am planning on going back for my 3rd session and I can't wait. Thank you 🙂
If you're reading this because you're on the fence - DO IT! I was at a wedding last week, hanging out with a bunch of guys my age and balding came up (quite a few of them were bald or close to it) and one of them says to me "If I had as much hair as you do, I would never buzz it that short - let it grow out!" Mission accomplished. THANK YOU!
This Procedure has changed my life! I only wished I did it much sooner. It's very low maintenance and I get to enjoy a perfect realistic hairline everyday for the rest of my life. I can now go without a hat with great confidence. People actually think my new buzz cut hairline is real. They ask me who my barber is and compliment me! They have no idea I had the Procedure done. You can't go wrong with Hairline Ink. You will be a New younger looking person in no time.
This, by far, will be the most realistic tattoo you'll ever see! I've kept my scalp treatment a secret from absolutely no-one. I have to convince everyone it's a tattoo because no-one ever believes me!
I had two treatments and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience. My practitioner was very friendly and professional. No BS. The treatments were explained thoroughly and done with minimal discomfort. They make you feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Hairline ink!
Having been bald for the last 5 years i can honestly say that hairline ink has changed my life. I would strongly 5 star recommend this treatment from hairline ink for anybody looking to stop having to feel the need to wear a fitted baseball all day every day. I want to thank everyone at hairline ink. They did a amazing job with my treatment. In summary, guys stop thinking about doing this treatment AND just get it done. You won't regret it!!!
