June 8, 2012 | Good Look Ink Receives Overwhelming Response Following “Good Morning America” Appearance
Unique hair loss solution highlighted on national television program
Edina, MN (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
Good Look Ink has provided more than 1,000 men and women with thin hair the appearance of full density using a proprietary non-surgical procedure. After receiving recent national attention on Good Morning America, the company’s unique process is reaching an even larger, global audience.
Good Morning America followed the success stories of two Good Look Ink clients and introduced the country to Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication (CTHR™). CTHR is the process of matching a client’s unique hair follicle and replicating it tens of thousands of times with an insoluble pigment, creating the appearance of a full head of hair.
Following the national exposure on Good Morning America, the company fielded tens of thousands of new client inquiries as far away as Australia, where the segment also ran. The response was so tremendous that callers temporarily overwhelmed the company’s toll free 1-800 number. Viewers also flocked to Good Look Ink’s website at http://www.mygoodlook.com.
“We were expecting a rush of client inquiries from the media coverage,” said Darrin Gerr, president of Good Look Ink. “We took steps to manage the expected traffic by contracting with a professional call center and increasing our website bandwidth. However, the volume of new customers will have a profound impact on our business for the rest of the year as we schedule new CTHR treatment appointments.”
In the past few years, Good Look Ink has established itself as a top hair loss alternative with over 1,000 CTHR applications performed on clients from around the world. Many clients have turned their procedures into medi-vacations. In addition to the royal treatment clients receive, catered meals and deluxe accommodations, many international clients take in the sights as a tourist while in town. Whether it’s a trip to the Mall of America, a Twins game at the new Target Field or a Broadway show at one of the many theaters in town, clients make the most of their long-distance procedure and return from Minnesota looking and feeling better than ever.
“The seeing-is-believing aspect of the process is the truth,” Gerr told Good Morning America. “That is why Good Look Ink is successful and why people are leaving happy.”

June 1, 2012 | Good Look Ink featured on ABC’s Good Morning America
Millions of people learned about Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication yesterday, as Good Look Ink was featured on ABC’s Good Morning America.
March 21, 2012 | Good Look Ink featured in Star Tribune
Psst, Matt Lauer, three words for you: Good Look Ink.The Edina cosmetic hair replication business will be in a position to provide NBC’s “Today” show anchor with the illusion of additional hair after the company completes its exclusive appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Darrin Gerr, operations manager of Good Look Ink, confirmed that last week a “GMA” crew shot three clients who are undergoing the technique that camouflages thinning hair.
“They did a time lapse, a camera over the head of my technician, and every 20 seconds it was [capturing a frame] for six hours or whatever it was,” said Gerr, who’s “curious to see what this looks like in the end.”
“GMA”‘s Elisabeth Leamy is scheduled to arrive here Tuesday to see how the process worked on clients Naseem, Brian and Mike, all Minnesotans. The big reveal is scheduled to be made on “GMA” in the coming weeks. If you miss it, there’ll be a link at goodlookink.com.
Over the objections of Gerr, I simplistically describe the procedure as using pigment to pointillistically tattoo what look like hair follicles on a head.
This technique was first used to disguise scars from hair-transplant surgery, said Gerr, who prefers this explanation of the method:
“Like micropigmentation known as permanent cosmetic makeup and tattooing, which both use pigment going into the skin, this is a brand-new process. This is Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication (CTHR), which takes into account the different thicknesses of the skin on your scalp. The needle, the application
process are all unique. The end process is that people have the appearance of a full head of hair in a day, nonsurgically. The process has been perfected with nearly 1,000 men and women, to date.
“Micropigmentation is on the surface of the skin; over time exfoliation will eliminate it. Tattooing goes farther into the skin, draws blood. But CTHR is not on the surface and not as deep, but each impression is placed into the first and second layer of skin in its own little cocoon, so to speak, never to be harmed except by UV rays over time if proper precautions are not taken.”
Wordy, I know. Just remember that CTHR does not promise to promote hair growth — only give the illusion that hair is growing.
Follically endowed “GMA” anchors George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott and Sam Champion, with the thinnest hair of the trio, don’t look like prospective Good Look Ink clients to me. But Lauer sure does.
Somebody seems to monitor the cameras so that viewers don’t get angles of Lauer that reveal how bald he can appear when not shot from the front. Not that Annette Roque’s husband isn’t still quite handsome. And not that Lauer himself seems particularly bothered about the lack of hair on his pate, as
he certainly has the money to afford a hair transplant.
“We may go discuss it with Matt Lauer, and educate [more people about] this new option, after ‘Good Morning America,” said Gerr, “But ‘GMA’ asked for an exclusive, due to the time [commitment] from beginning to end to have this done.”

November 21, 2011 | ABC News – MN-Made Company Offers New Solution to Hair Loss
For a lot of men and women losing their hair can be a traumatic experience. One Minnesotan helped create a new procedure that brings back the look of hair through indelible ink.

It is no surprise when you learn he is the owner of Good Look Ink in Edina. The company created a new procedure that brings back the look of hair through indelible ink.
He says the process recreates the appearance of tens of thousands of individual hair follicles. It costs about $4,000 and can be done in a day.
Gerr, who had the procedure done himself, says people notice something different about him, but they just can’t exactly pinpoint what it is.
Gerr says the company, which started in 2009, is the only business in the U.S. performing this type of hair process. He says they have clients from all over the world.
October 4, 2011 | Interview on Today’s Market Place on NBC News
Today’s Market Place on NBC News:
The Good Look Ink technique has been developed to recreate the appearance of tens of thousands of individual hair follicles for anyone with hair loss. This Practice employs the process of ingraining an indelible pigment (Non-Surgically) into the dermis of the scalp, mimicking both the color and density of a living follicle. Good Look Ink will restore the permanent look of a full head of hair using the Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication process. The CTHR™ process will take between 1 to 8 hours to complete depending on your current hair loss needs.
Scar Camouflaging CTHR™ creates the appearance of a healthy scalp with a level of realism far beyond mere shading. Each micro hair impression is individually crafted to perfectly replicate a living follicle, providing not only a uniform darker scalp but the real illusion of thicker, fuller hair leaving no evidence of previous scars at a glance.

Video: C.J.: Good Look Ink is attacking baldness
According to Darrin G, producers who’ve worked with Oprah are aware of his camouflaging technique for thinning hair, but he’s not equipped for the onslaught that could accompany such a national airing.
For two years privately and eight months publicly, Gerr, operations manager of Edina’s Good Look Ink, has been working on a business that specializes in “Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication.” This is a process whereby dots of pigmentation are placed among the thinning hairs of a head to resemble individual hair follicles and thus create the illusion of hair.
Darrin has two technicians, Leah and Tonya, trained in this pointillist process.
Since a mention on, say, Oprah could bring a flood of clients, Darrin’s not prepared for that level of national exposure just yet, although the master plan is that “We’re going to make this global” eventually, said Darrin G.
I ran into him at Fox 9 — he’s been on many Fox stations — and got a chance to examine the finished product up close. See video of me playing in Gerr’s hair at startribune.com/video.
This process was first used to disguise scars from hair-transplant surgery. It costs between $500 and $8,400, reportedly hurts much less than getting a tattoo, and there’s no blood. The $8,400 is for a full head of 30,000 dots, the number required for someone with alopecia. The cost depends on how much hair you have left. The technique involves applying 200 or fewer dots per square inch to skin that’s visible beneath thinning hair.
Hmmm. Wonder if this could be what’s going on with Joey Lawrence, who has returned to TV in “Melissa & Joey,” an ABC Family Channel sitcom?
“That’s what everyone’s asking me,” Gerr said with a lengthy laugh.

Battling Baldness with Pigment
Published : Thursday, 15 Apr 2010, 6:08 PM CDT
MINNEAPOLIS – When your chances for long locks are long gone, you may embrace the idea that “bald is beautiful” or, it could end up your number one insecurity. But anew tool can help those fighting baldness.
Dave Miller, age 39, says he wasn’t obsessed with baldness, but it just never looked quite right on him.
He underwent a five-hour procedure called Cosmetic Hair Replication with a newly designed hair thin needle and mineral-based pigments to match his natural hair color. The technician colored permanent tiny dots to simulate hair follicles.
Once healed, the redness disappears and the color will lighten to match his real hair color.
Good Look Ink, Inc has been in the hair replication business for about two years. Darrin Gerr says “it’s not just for the really bald, but those with thin or thinning hair, are also perfect clients” because the procedure can make the remaining hair look thicker. They can also disguise scars from hair transplants or injury.
