    I think your last pic looks good ivor but I'd like to see a few more pics if possible. Thank you
  6. Fue + smp

    Tack, det tar sig! Har satt hela fronten/hårlinjen och fortsatt bakåt, så i stort sett hela skallen. Graften sitter tätare fram för att skapa en tydlig hårlinje (antar jag) å sen glesas dem ut bakåt. Jag upplever inte att huden där de nya håret sitter ser annorlunda ut mer än att hårstråna är lite tjockare. När jag har det rakat typ 0,5-1mm så smälter allt ihop bra med smp:n.

    Sorry för segt svar men nu har jag letat fram ett par bilder. Skickar pm.

    Ser grymt ut! Vart satte du de transplanterade håren? Gjorde själv en FUE 3500 grafts, är lite orolig för att huden i det transplanterade området kommer se annorlunda ut så det blir uppenbart att min hårlinje är fixad, har du upplevt detta?
  9. Day 1

    Wow. Good to hear from you. You just took the record for "Time between updates".
  10. Day 1

    Update So I completed 4 laser treatments and had an FUE procedure completed. This picture is 6 months after FUE. This picture is cut down to a number 1 cut. I am damn happy with the results. I had a hard time seeing the scar myself.

    Made me laugh, Bobobaldy; me being the only person on here who's treatment hasn't faded. Yeah, I know. Story of my life. (Just joking, I've had a ball in life....so far). I believe the practitioner intended the hairline to be broken; that's what we discussed, but neither of us expected the SMP not to fade so maybe if it had faded as per routine, and like it did between 1st and 2nd session, it may well have looked less defined. I don't think it is as straight as an intended defined hairline, like some ask for. What's people's thought on my last photo, please?
  12. Getting caught out

    I know you don't want to knock the practitioner, but I thought that the faded/feathered hairline was now the norm, unless the customer is adamant that they want it defined. As I have said a high/rededed hairline with a perfect hairline is really unnatural. We don't bald like that! At this point any further treatment should be to lower but mess up the hairline. Look at pictures of people who have shaved their heads for real, hairlines all over the place, at you wouldn't give it a second glance.But a perfect hairline looks unnatural on an older guy.IMO But unfortunately I think you are the only person on here who's treatment hasn't faded, Most people bitch about the treatment disappearing and wish they had gone darker.Hopefully it will fade in time.

    Sorry SMPler....it ain't that simple. I don't want people to know I've had the treatment. P!$@ taking would be relentless for a start but in all cases I just don't want people to know. And no, it wouldn't be forgotten in a couple of days. I met guys for a few drinks before I went back to work and now, almost 2 weeks later everyday I'm told (sarcastically) that what I've grown is impossible, how can I bottle it and sell it and how I've got blue hair. Hey, I can laugh and joke with the best of them but it's my....and quite a few other posters on here...choice to not want others to know I've had the treatment. I've said before on this post, I like having something up there, albeit just an illusion, and if I was to just start a new life where nobody knew me before, this would work fine. I wanted a subtle appearance of light grey stubble.....my choice....quite a lot of money....and it hasn't happened. I repeat, I am not knocking SMP at all nor my practitioner, mine just isn't fading / looking like those role models I researched beforehand. Overthinking it? Yes, cus it's there all the time. It needs to be more faded and less sharp at the hairline. My choice in not wanting people to know I'm hiding my 30+ years of baldness.

    Why do you care so much if other people notice a change on your head? Let them notice whatever they want. Even if they notice something, after a day or two they have forgotten about it anyway and don't give a crap about your hair. I have the feeling you overthink the whole thing a bit too much.
  15. Getting caught out

    Clearer photo than before. Got more with better lighting where it does look lighter but I wont post them till I work out how to blank my face out.
  16. Getting caught out

    willgreen, having done a search and viewed your photos I think your treatment looks superb. You and I should just swap heads. Had a chat at a laser clinic today. She looked closely at my head and said she could not tell it wasn't hair but agreed that the hairline was a bit sharp. She Googled Hishair while I was there to get some information on the process. Having explained about the ink that Hishair uses she does think it will fade to a shade closer to the sides and back of my head and recommends I don't try a full, top of head laser....which was good of her because that's less money for them if I do go for some laser treatment later. It appears I do have some sun damage on the top of my head and she also recommended I get that checked by a doctor. I've got some better photos which I will try and upload.....how do you scrub out faces on photos?????

    Hur går det Tompa! Blir det några före-bilder snart?
  18. Getting caught out

    This is so different from my experience. I was also totally bald. Not one person ever clicked my smp change and the f they did never said anything. Even now after so many sessions I wonder can people notice it when they say stuff like "I will be like u soon "
  19. Getting caught out

    Thanks SHVD. Am going to look into all possible solutions before I act. I understand what you mean by giving it time but it has now been almost 6 weeks and although larger patches such as my dome have slightly faded...though not much...more patchy than faded, the lines of my hairline are so distinct. My photos are really poor quality so don't show that. The lines have not faded and nor has the front part of my scalp. I was absolutely bald, fair and smooth on top so the appearance of a strong hairline along with dark shaved hair is too great a transformation to be believeable. I will keep the forum updated and thanks for all the responses.

    My suggestion is to bite the bullet and hold off from lasering your head for now. I would say that after ten weeks you will notice the settling in period to have occurred and will in my opinion be accustomed and adjusted to actually no longer being bare up there. The first treatment is a light template and does not have the 'impact' that the density from the second gives. I am more than confident that after a couple of months it will 'settle' and not appear to be so vibrant. Ironically this vibrant first couple of months is what I term the honeymoon period in that it is super zingy and visible. Believe me, do not laser your nut for at least three months. I think you will be okay, you do not have an unrealistic hairline, it will calm and also you will adjust. Your acquaintances now know you as the guy with hair... HURRAH!

    PermanentVacation; I guess that is indeed possible. However, my first treatment had my hairline higher than it is now and I looked like something off the Simpsons. My second treatment I was adamant I wanted it lower and that was against the wishes of my practitioner. She was reluctant to drop it but then agreed. I still rely on their experience and she said she would not go any lower than it is now. Considering my age I would say it is just about the right height now. My first treatment, like everyone else, (shade 50) was dark for the first few days then by the day of my 2nd treatment, 7 days after the first, it was just the right shade I wanted. Had I not (desperately) NEEDED to have the hairline lowered, I would have left my treatment at that and not had the 2nd session. But the hairline needed to drop 1/2 cm or so and rather than just have a strip across the front of my head where it was lowered, I accepted a full 2nd session (on top, not sides, because my left temple was still too painful from the 1st session). That 2nd session, (shade 52), is where it has gone 'wrong' for me. I never wanted an illusion of a full head of shaven hair because I knew the change in appearance would not be believable to people who knew me; I wanted an illusion saying that my hair had started receding and thinning, and so I was shaving to the bone as though 'hiding' that impending baldness....if that makes sense. So, the fading after session 1 was exactly what I was after...wish I had taken a photo myself....but the hairline was too high and cartoon like. My hopes are that now I can get the top all lightened to match the sides AND get the rather straight lined hairline broken up. That left temple I mentioned also has a 10p piece sized area that is darker than the rest of the sides; as though it was slightly over-inked in the first session, so I could do with that being lighter as well. I know Cutlass has experience of lasers to lighten and remove the ink; can anyone provide information on strength or power of the laser to just lighten or fade the ink slightly? I can risk having experimental shots of laser on that 10p sized ink area and also on a larger ink dot at the corner of my right receded hairline to see how it gets on before going the whole hog.

    Have you thought about lowerering your hairline a cm or so. you can have your hairline feathered down so to speak. I know that is an option just a thought.
  23. Getting caught out

    Thanks for the replies. 2hangar, I will do outside photos this coming weekend. Bobobaldy, yeah, I am in 2 minds about a 3rd session.....as I said earlier, posters all say that the 3rd is when the magic happens. But, my main problem is the lack of fading all over the top and front. The vast majority of photos on the forum of smp look superb on guys. Those who were nw7 look far better with their new look so smp works and is a brilliant solution to baldness. However mine is just too dark on top and a bit too defined at the hairline making it too great a change in my appearance. Everyone who knew me before has noticed that change. Comments from them come on a daily basis and now three seperate people who have no connection with each other have said about how my hair looks blue....in different lighting!!! I love having that 'stubble' up there but want/need it to be far lighter and less defined at the front. I don't understand how more smp would achieve the lighter appearance even if shade 58 or 60 was used. My 2nd treatment was 52, so the slightly lowered hairline should appear slightly lighter than the top as the lowered hairline has only been hit once with the needle. But it doesn't. This week has meant teaching in a classroom with people I've never met before plus 2 I've met just in passing and there hasn't been a single double look or eyes up to my head as we speak. So it's not that my smp doesn't look real........except possibly occasionally blue......it is that the change from my being totally fair and bald to having thick dark stubble is too great to really be believeable. Work has been manic this week so again I've been a bit slow on my personal stuff. I have booked a consultation with a local laser company for tomorrow. I intend trying to ring HisHair lunchtime today for advice, work time permitting and will update on both over the weekend.
  24. Are you finishing smp

  25. Blending Issue?

    I think the results would be vary form person to person it might take some time to progress.

    Okej! Ja fördelen med fue att det ger ju en 3d-effekt som inte smp ger ensam. Så jag ska definitivt köra på en kombo! Jaså det växer lite i olika riktningar, just det är jag lite orolig för, har sett vissa resultat där alla hår verkar växa åt samma håll, och vissa där det står att alla håll. Ska bli spännande att se dina bilder!

    Ska leta fram å skicka så fort jag sitter vid datorn, kör via luren nu.
  29. Fue + smp

    Nja jag tycker att det var lite dåligt med information kring hur ärren kunde bli på donorområdet då jag sa att tanken med min ht var att köra snaggat. Jag tror dock att jag hade gjort fuen ändå.. man tar som sagt inte till sig det negativa så bra när väl bestämt sig 🙉 Graftsen tog bra men dom är i lite olika riktning än mitt ”riktiga” hår men det verkar va rätt vanligt. Man ser tydligt vad som är fue å vad som är riktigt hår. Dock ger det bra effekt nu tillsammans med smp men jag tycker problemet är ärren på sidorna, syns inte på bilderna. Jag ska skicka bild på hur det ser ut. Kan man dölja ärren så tror jag som sagt att fue+smp kan bli riktigt grymt 😊
