    Yours is typical for a 3 session client bobobaldy. In just about all cases the third session would be chargeable if needed, but if you pay for a third session you trigger a free touch up anywhere within a year of the first treatment. The exception is In extreme, rare, cases where the client's system eats the pigment beyond the third session, HIS would see the client right and offer additional treatment so that the desired outcome is achieved.

    We are all the harshest judges. I've had my SMP for almost 5 years now and I've never been called out but I wouldn't say it looks 100% convincing to myself either, and I do use concealer at the hairline to improve the blending (considering getting my hairline redone but this is an ok solution). In fact it gets a bit annoying dealing with all the "why don't you grow your hair out?" "you would look good with X hairstyle" comments.

    SMP turning blue after some years

    Hi Vinc 2097! Bad SMP's are blue at the very first moments, but not after years. I had mine in 2015 and I am also still super happy! Believe me, when I informed myself online about providers, I also saw some really bad pics...! And then I chose HIS, because I wanted to minimize the risk. They are the longest on the market, have the greatest experience and in 2015 HIS were the only one who used different color depths for the 3d-effect. But I must also say, it took me exactly 24 months to do this, because I was scared. So, I know exactly how you and the others feel about. And when you read all comments here from the people, that have pulled through you will read some times the words " new born" and this is just as I feel now! Good luck mate! (sorry about my bad english, I am from Germany)

    Finished 3rd session in early 2015, still the best choice I have ever made in my life, I can honestly say I prefer this look over when I had hair lol, my girlfriend of over a year haven't even been able to spot it, and she touches my head every day! Honestly if your on the fence, this goes for the young people as well, get it done. Male pattern baldness have no cure, accept it, because you are fighting a battle that you are not going to win. Get fit, and get a tan and your good!

    Hi hairisgongaway! I don't like a fresh shaved head so much. But I have found a good compromise for the first day! I shave my head on any second ot third day at early evening, when I am at home. When you shave at 6pm, your head will have already more color at next morning. If you go out, shave it before bedtime. 12 to 15 hours bring a lot. Try it!

    Most find that around day 3 they would want to shave again, but up till then the SMP stays on point. It does not have to match either a clean-shaven head or a few days growth, It does both. Really well.

    Post first session - underwhelmed.

    The first session is to try and see how your head absorbs the pigmentation and dialing down a proper shade for the next session. Everyone's head absorbs the pigmentation differently. After my first session my smp was extremely light and looked awful so do not panic. It takes multiple sessions to finish and tweak this procedure.

    My not so good smp story so far

    Update on this: I've just had my first laser session today. Had a test patch done a few weeks ago, they tried different settings to see what's best to remove the deepest and darkest/biggest dots. So looking in the mirror now, it's still red obviously but I can see the biggest/darkest dots are almost gone already. Thank god for smp ink! I'll give it a few weeks to heal now and think about whether I will have another laser session to remove the rest of my (good) smp or get another treatment from a different practitioner in Paris which has been offered to me by my current practitioner. I'm happy to say I haven't been let down, even though it's been a rough couple of weeks for me now.

    I had mine in 2014 with a top up in '16 on the hairline. Mine In my opinion has got better over time. That's with about 3 days of not wet shaving

    Those concealer pictures are very impressive on how much it hid your hair loss and still looked fairly realistic. My only trick was to wear a baseball cap which was I essentially considered my $20 wig.

    I did not speak about the pricing. I spoke about how many session will be need. When the practitioner looked at my head she said, that I need definitely three sessions. So I paid before my 1st session for all three. But if I needed a fourth or fifth, I would not have to paid more for that.

    Even with a shaved head the real hair on top can look invisible or lighter under direct sunlight. Smp can look lighter or even darker in natural light such as the sun or under artificial light such as florescent bulbs and say a 100 watt light light. Lighting definitely effects the look of a shaved head.

    Without a doubt the best thing I've done for my appearance. Love it. So happy with the work. Looks like I have a slightly-receding buzz cut now; not "bald" at all. Post pics of your head!

    Birmingham sounds like the best option for a His smp and I have always seen amazing results from them. I wish I could of had my smp done there but it is way to far to travel for me being from Canada. The Birmingham office is also always so nice and accommodating when I have had to make my appointments in Canada.

    It looks like an eternal thread. Like others, it is a personal decision. I never got along with the various electric shavers that I have tried. I prefer a razor and gel but mostly just stick with a beard these days. I didn't see anyone else suggest this so I thought I would throw it out there. If he is the razor type of fellow, consider a razor of the month club for a year as a gift. I've heard great things from others that have them. Another alternative is to seek out someone who turns pens on a lathe for a hobby. The supply catalogs for the pens also have razor handles that fit standard blades among many other things. I have a custom one made from Phillips https://www.mistershaver.com/top-5-best-selling-philips-electric-shavers/ that I turned down for myself and use when I need to trim my neck. It definitely looks much better than the cheap plastic things they sell in stores. Also, you need to get a razor that is suited for how you plan on using it and what kind of beard you have. I happen to have a very thick beard and therefore I need a razor that is made to handle that specifically. The Braun series 7 and 9 seemed to be rated the best for that. There are many interesting videos on YouTube on this topic.

    Need feedback

    The smp practitioners in the UK are easily the best. I do not feel that just any practitioner can get flawless results with proper blending. Some practitioners just lay dots and others are artists when it comes to smp.

    Its important to distinguish between a bad SMP treatment with the wrong pigment, or technique, that can result in an outcome that is distinctly blue.. and a recognised visual illusion that can see even a real shaved head, or chin, appear to have a faint shade of blue in some lighting conditions.

    SMP turning blue after some years

    The first one looks really good even after 4 years true !!! But the second one could it be a little bit blue/grey or maybe its just because of the bright light environment ! thanks
