Paisley Reviews

Right from the start Barry makes you feel comfortable. The pre-anxiety you have going into the first meeting disappears after your first consultation. He is very professional about his work and puts effort into making sure you’re getting exactly what you’re after. The location he is in is great, it’s discrete, out of the way and relaxing to be in. Couldn’t recommend this service or Barry enough for what he’s done, it’s been a pleasure.

I had been following Barry’s work for a couple of years now and was always impressed with what I had seen online, especially the amazing feedback from the previous clients. I spent those two years looking into the treatment and looking at different places but I was always drawn back to Skulltec. Throughout those two years I only saw Barry’s work get better and better, it was at that time I told a friend about him and he went ahead with the treatment first and after seeing his amazing results I was booked in the week after he finished.Anyone in my position knows this is a massive step in their lives and it can be very tough walking through the door. Which is why Barrie was made for this job! Not only has he been exactly where I was! But he understands every feeling and emotion that’s going on in your head. He makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed straight away. I never once felt pressured or pushed into getting the treatment! Infact Barry was the one who told me to go away and really think about it before any decisions. I knew right away this was more than a job for Barry, this guy loves knowing he is changing every clients life for the better!Even after the first session I couldn’t believe how amazing my head was looking, and every session after that it just got better and better. It’s not just a job that Barry does, it’s Art. The amount of detail and commitment he puts into your sessions is unbelievable, a perfectionist who won’t let you walk away until he knows he has done the best possible job. That’s a true artist.It’s been a few months now since my treatment and I can’t put into words how much it has changed my life. The reaction from my family and friends has been incredible and every single one of them think i have just shaved my head! It’s mind blowing how real it looks. My only regret was not getting this done years ago, because it’s changed my life not only physically but mentally. I’m happier than I have ever been and it’s all down to Barry.A very charming, down to earth family man who has some of the best banter going 😂 ! Constantly making jokes yet can be very deep in his own way, it’s very hard to not like the guy! I should be paying him for counselling sessions too 😂 but honestly I now class Barry as a friend, someone who I respect very much in his trade but more as a person.There’s no one better out there than this guy.I can’t thank him enough for changing my life, and I will be forever grateful to him!Cheers Barry! See ye down the road mate 👍🏼

Highly recommend Barry for this treatment. On first appointment he gave me great advice on what can be done then booked me in for my appointments. Barry is brilliant at what he does and he made the process very easy for me. The treatment I received has made a huge difference. Really nice guy who makes you feel at ease. It’s great to know that this treatment is out there. I’m delighted I found Skulltec.

I visited Barry a while back after my wife telling me about the clinic and what Barry offered. I was a touch sceptical at first but after sitting with Barry and having him explain the procedure and what results I could expect I decided to proceed and get micro pigmentation.Skulltec were professional in their approach from start to finish, providing advice and support through the journey.Barry is very proud of his work and aims for 100% customer satisfaction every time, striving to exceed the customer expectations.His patter is not bad as well, so the sessions fly by and you might even get a brew.

Quite simply the best decision I have ever made, although i was very anxious even before the initial consultation, Barry was very honest and had me relaxed from the off and assured me I was in good hands, he wasn’t wrong. Mind blowing results! The results are out of this world, I was anxious that something as simple as the treatment I was getting wasn’t going to be as good as it seems as it was the fraction of the cost of a transplant, but I can happily say I’m glad I took the plunge and took Barry’s word for it. I can’t remember having confidence like this for many a year! If you are naturally worried/anxious about getting the treatment done, at least go and see Barry for a consultation, mark my words you will not regret it.

Just had SMP carried out by Barry at Skulltec on my hair transplant scars.I had already had 3 sessions carried out at another well known clinic in Glasgow but was left disappointed with the results, so after some careful research online I decided to approach Skulltec and I am glad that I did.It is clear that Barry has a genuine passion for his work and this shows in the realistic and natural results he is able to achieve. His customer service is top drawer and he will make you feel at ease right from the get go.The clinic itself is in a discreet and easy to get to location with parking on site.My only regret is that I didn’t go to Skulltec first.

My husband has just completed his third SMP session at Skulltec and the results are truly amazing. His new hairline is so natural looking and you can't tell the real hair follicles & pigment apart - it just looks like real hair! I can already see a regained confidence and extra bounce in his step. Absolutely amazing what can be done!

I have just completed my third scalp micro pigmentation treatment last week and the results are incredible.I started noticing my hair loss at a young age which buckled my confidence. I wore hats when I could and stopped going out with my friends in certain environments. I have been looking at hair loss solutions seriously for probably around 8 years and always thought the only option was a hair transplant until I spotted scalp micro pigmentation a few years ago.I was following Skulltec for about 2 years before I finally took a step forward to speak with Barry and well... The rest is history! The procedure itself was pain-free, affordable and the results speak for themselves. A natural looking hairline and confidence totally restored!I would highly recommend Skulltec to anyone suffering from any impact of hair loss.Thanks again Barry.Robert Inglis

I have just had my last session completed today by Barry and it’s so much better than I’d even had imagined! I had a friend who had visited Barry and seen the confidence he got from that so went to visit Barry, from the first meeting to the last he’s been absolutely amazing! Great guy great atmosphere but more than all great results! I couldn’t be happier with the way things have went, I’ve researched a fair bit before my SMP with Barry and I can comfortably say he’s absolutely the best in the business at what he does! If you want a smile as wide as mines go and pay Barry a visit.Thanks a lot mate.Darren Affleck

I have just finished my SMP training with Barry and I am so excited to get started. I feel 100% confident, I am so glad I choose Barry for my training. He is such a skilled practitioner, honest and a master of SMP. He really left no stone unturned which is exactly what I needed coming from a completely different industry. I knew straight away when first met Barry I could put my trust in him to make sure I was trained to the highest standards and everything would be covered......”I also have my book of notes Barry I took for reference” 😂For anyone considering having an SMP treatment or training look no further than Skulltec, he really is the best in Scotland if not the UK.

Cannot recommend Barry at Skulltec enough, his knowledge and skills are second to none. I considered SMP for last 5 years but was not convinced with other practitioners work. When I met Barry at my initial consultation he explained everything in detail and put my mind at ease. I have just had my 4th session and I cannot be happier. I have seen people's SMP up close from different companies and to me it always looked fake and unnatural. The hairline that Barry created for me is natural looking and people are asking me if Iv stopped clean shaving my head and using clippers now. Honestly could not be happier.

Best thing I’ve ever made, like most, done research, seen a few companies, but these guys stand out. Consultation was a friendly chat, Barry explained what the process and what to look for, I left feeling equipped with the knowledge to make the right decision. The realistic work Barry produces stood out head and shoulders above everyone else. I wanted my pigmentation to look natural with a faded hairline, and that’s exactly what he’s done, you would never believe I had hair tattood on my scalp. Honestly can’t recommend this guy enough, he’s an absoluete gentleman, and takes pride in his work.

Very helpful & very supportive! Barry and his team are awesome! They've build an incredible establishment & the guys are the most genuine bunch! Wee bit nuts, but who wants to mingle with normal! They get the job done & make you feel like part of the team!I'm so happy I chose to train with Skulltec💀 If I could give these guys 10☆ I would!!! ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

I'll apologise in advance for the long winded feedback, but I cant praise this company enough. I began losing my hair in mt early 20s, it progressively got worse in my early 30s. Having spent half my life without hair, I decided it was time for a change. Hairloss has overshadowed my confidence for too long. Having weighed up my options, scalp micropigmemtation seemed the best option, and least invasive.I came across Skulltec on Google and was instantly impressed with the standard and quality of work. After speaking with Barry I decided i'd make the 10 hour round trip for each session for the work to be carried out.I was nervous prior to my first session, but Barry put my mind at ease and explained in detail the rollercoaster of emotions ahead of my SMP journey, having had the treatment before i knew Barry would have understood the path ahead.4 sessions later and the results are beyond words, im delighted with the results. My high expectations were met in every way imaginable, Barry went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure i got the reaults I was after.This treatment has meant the world to me, both mentally and physically. My confidence is through the roof. Of anyone is on the fence deciding to go ahead or not, id happily show off my results. I cant praise Barry enough, he has chamged my life.Thanks again Barry, you've made this journey life changing for me. I cant thank you enough.

I can’t say enough about Barry and the service he provided. This was a decision that kept me awake at night. Reading reviews and watching clips on you tube. I was absolutely petrified about how it would look. I went to meet Barry and I was put at ease instantly. So I decided to go ahead. I put my trust in Barry and the results are incredible. First season was basic outlining and as Barry said a patch test. After second session I just wasn’t sure because it was a bit of a shock. But after a day I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror. And that meant leading up to the third session all my nerves and worries were completely gone. My third session was completed and it’s transformed me. I feel more confident. I constantly look at the results in the mirror. I love it. I don’t think anyone will say this is for me without being a bit worried but if I was to give anyone considering the treatment some advice I’d say go for it. 15 years of being embarrassed by my bald head is gone after 3 sessions of treatment. Thanks Barry for everything. You’ve changed my life.

I've just finished my third session with Barry at Skulltec and I could not be any happier with the results, my only regret is not getting the treatment sooner! Barry is extremely accommodating, his office extremely comfortable and and chirpy personality will keep you comfortable throughout the entire procedure.The reviews here really speak for themselves, Barry is extremely talented at his craft and his reputation well earned from the many many happy clients such as myself. Do not choose based on location or cost, it is essential that you find someone who is passionate about the treatment and has the talent and ability to deliver the SMP treatment with astounding results. Look no further than Skulltec!

Great service, I do strongly recommend Quinton's work for every single individual looking for SMP here in the South West. Let Quinton advise you regarding what are the best options for your treatment.I understand the initial results may be shocking or underwhelming (specially if it's the first time you shave your head) but sit or lay down, relax, have a chat, enjoy the music and allow Quinton to take you through the process, session after session and it will clear out any of your doubts or concerns. This treatment has given me a massive boost in confidence, a valuable difference in life after stopping using micro fibers (e.g. Toppik or Nanogen), 0 regrets and glad I made the choice to pay Skulltec a visit the first time. 10/10 would recommend.

Quinton delivered a subtle, understated, and natural hairline for me just as I had requested. I guess everyone's main concern is if it will look natural or not, this was certainly my biggest worry. Well it looks so natural that I am half expecting it grow. I dithered for many months but I am so pleased I made the decision to have it done. You need a skilled technician and I decided on Quinton because of his portfolio and training.The studio is spotlessly clean and Quinton ( a lovely man by the way) enthuses a relaxed atmosphere throughout. Carefully discuss with Quinton your desired hairline and let him do the rest. The treatment itself is painless and the couple hours in the chair just fly by. I found the whole experience very enjoyable. I wish him every success !

I have recently completed my last session with Quinton at Skulltec Southwest and to say I’m happy would be an understatement!After researching SMP for the last year or so I decided Quinton was the man for the job and what an awesome job he has done.From the very beginning he made me feel welcome and relaxed, and took his time to make sure we were both happy with my new hairline before proceeding. I had messages from him after every session to catch-up on healing and if I was happy. It’s truly great to have someone who cares as much about their work, and it made me feel 100% confident I had chosen Skulltec Southwest.After losing my hair at 22 I have spent the last 12 years hating my look. I used to wear hats everywhere I went and couldn’t stand seeing my bald head in family photographs. The difference this treatment has made to my confidence is unbelievable. I’m more than happy to leave the house without a hat now and can’t stop looking at my new hairline in the mirror.Quinton you are an absolute legend and I can honestly say you have changed my life. If you are thinking of having SMP look no further than Quinton Gordon at Skulltec Southwest 💀

Had a wonderful experience right through with Quinton. Really put at ease and was immediately assured that this procedure would work.We communicated ages before the appointment and I found out the level of treatment required.The procedure itself was fine and much less painful than I thought it would be and the hours flew by anyway as we both chatted and put the world to rights.The results are staggering, people at work gave the ultimate compliment to Quinton by asking if I’d had a hair cut.I’m absolutely thrilled with the results and would recommend Skulltec to everyone.

Cannot speak highly enough about Quinton and the procedure. Like most people considering smp I was hesitant and wasn’t sure how effective it would be and if it would look ok. Having met and spoken with Quinton I was reassured that even with my largely white hair at the sides good results could be achieved, and he was right. Very happy with the outcome and would encourage others to try the procedure. Quinton is methodical, passionate and a perfectionist; which is exactly what you want went undertaking such a procedure.

Lee: Quinton and his strong attention to detail has changed my life like I never thought possible. I have always hated my hair but the hatred became even stronger when my hair decided to part company with me and my scalp due to MPB! After becoming brave enough to shave my head, I always said that it was the best decision I had ever made.Micropigmentation & hairline restoration was always something I was interested in. After finding Quinton at Skulltec and seeing some of his work, I decided to go for a consultation. From the moment I met Quinton, I knew he was the man for the job that I wanted doing. His relaxed demeanour and professionalism combined with his attention to detail, perfectionism and his personality instantly put my mind at ease. I went away to think about it and a day later I booked in for the treatment.Now, I can honestly say that THIS has been the best decision I have ever made in regards to anything cosmetic. Prior to my treatment I wore a baseball cap everywhere and hated walking past anything that showed my reflection but now I find myself looking in shop windows just to catch a glimpse at my new hairline restoration!I'm still in shock that it's on my head and I feel more confident than I have done in years! Anyone contemplating having this done, DON'T HESITATE! I wish I had it done years ago. I also highly recommend Quinton, he's an all round awesome guy. I actually can't praise him or this treatment enough. So I'll leave it there...Quinton buddy, together, with me - you have changed my life!Nikita:The difference in Lee's appearance after this procedure is astounding. He looks so much younger and I find him even more attractive than before! He has a confidence about him now that he lost when he started losing his hair. It's lovely to see him leave the house without a hat on!I attended the consultation and first appointment with Lee, so that I could have some input on where Lee's new hairline sat etc...I felt so comfortable in the treatment room and found Quinton extremely welcoming and very easy to relax around and talk to. A highly professional man with a true passion for his work. He really is changing lives, one dot at a time and makes the entire experience very enjoyable and exciting. Thank you Quinton, so very much!

Straight off, I am blown away with the results from this treatment and the care received from Skulltec-southwest.I’m quite a skeptical person so going ahead with the procedure wasn’t an easy decision for me to make.I first noticed my hair ‘thinning’ when I was just 21 and by 30 it had pretty much all gone from the top of my head. I hated being a baldie so, from that date on, I couldn’t bring myself to leave the house without a hat on, even just putting the bins out made me anxious.I found Skulltec South West via Facebook and it immediately caught my attention so I checked out the website, read it all and viewed all the photos of previous work. I then messaged the page to register my interest. They were very quick to respond but I still um’d and ah’d for the next few months (COVID inclusive) and asked every question that came to mind, Quinton had the answers and didn’t falter once. Nothing was too much trouble. His passion for the work he offers is second to none and he seemed to have all the time in the world with no pressure on me at all. In the end, all I had to do was meet him and see the results for myself. So I did, and I was sold. I wish I had just done that from the off, I could have spent the summer with my new hair ;)Just a few days after my last session with Quinton I felt confident enough to work on the front of my house (repairs and painting) without a hat. And for the first time in 20 years I didn’t feel at all uncomfortable or worried.If you’re in the south west of England and thinking about SMP, don’t wait, go and meet Quinton and get started, you won’t regret it. His level of professionalism, workmanship and the cleanliness of his studio will leave you wishing he was doing this years ago!

Very precise service, I would strongly recommend Quinton, he is an expert in this field.
Not sure I can describe how nervous I was in the lead up to my ‘treatment’ .......but needless to say, I definitely shouldn’t have been, because Quinton was BRILLIANT!!!! He put me at ease instantly and before long my nerves had completely disappeared!Quinton was so informative about everything, and he had no issues answering my 756 questions!Having completed my treatments now, I am indescribably over the moon with the outcome! Confidence levels have increased ten-fold, and for a while now I haven’t been able to resist looking in the mirror! 🙂 So so happy with the results!!Thanks Q. See you again soon!
Absolute pleasure of an experience and I'm over the moon with the results, it's made such a difference to my life already! I wish I'd had it done years ago! Within the first 5 minutes of the consultation you'll definitely know you're in the right place, as did I. From the outstanding results to the aftercare I'm so pleased, Quinton explains everything about the procedure, the stages, what to expect and checks in with you between sessions giving you total peace of mind, all in all you couldn't wish for a better more professional service. If your thinking of having SMP I can't recommend Skulltec highly enough.

Had a fantastic experience! I’ve wanted to have it done for a long time but wasn’t sure it would work on me as I have a buzz cut, but I still have hair just a bad recede and thinning on the top. I went to see Quinton to find out what could be done. After 30 seconds I knew I was having it done as he put me at ease, explained what he could do and the step by step progress I would see throughout the sessions. He then kept in touch in between each one to see how I was getting on and to remind me what he would be doing in the next sessionI’ve had my 3rd and likely final session now and it’s looking great, you can’t even tell what is my hair and what is SMP!If you want to have it done I would recommend to anyone that you go and see Quinton. I couldn’t be happier

Quinton is a life long friend of mine, I've known him over 27 years. I've always aspired and looked up to him throughout his careers. Right from the outset, birth and development of Skulltec, the main strategy was to get Quinton on board.I personally trained Quinton over the last few months ans his desire and attention to detail are second to none. I've put my whole reputation on the line, that's how much I trust this man.I can highly recommend his skills and ability to carry out procedures. I'm looking forward to seeing out his journey in the South West 👌
