Joe’s Hair Loss Story

Joe dealt with the struggles of hair loss ever since high school, trying topical and oral applications for years without success. Giving into the inevitable, he started to shave his head. As a tattoo artist, it wasn’t until he started using SMP needles for his realistic tattoo work that he discovered this option for hair loss. Upon completing the Scalp Micro USA training course in 2020 at the top of his class and receiving his own life changing treatment, he went on to open Indiana’s leading clinic to help those also struggling across the Midwest.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to go with Crone Ink SMP, because Joe (the owner) only recently started his business and he didn’t have many reviews. However, looking back, I am confident I made the right decision to work with Joe... Read more
