    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)

    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.

    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.

    That's impressive! As vinny says def over-analysing. Start enjoying that, for peace of mind maybe call in to his at some stage perhaps but that is one perfect treatmtent over time you'll forget its even there

    Thanks for the comments. Those pics are about a week apart. I have to be honest that nobody has ever mentioned the colour shade of my head. Regardless of anything. It was one of the best choices I have made. I wish I could have told my past self that I'd be getting smp in my future, the worry id of saved myself. 😬thank you his Birmingham

    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

    With very few exceptions I would say that is the normal situation for anyone approaching their treatment date. Hopefully you will have done all the research necessary to be reassured that everything is going to be fine. It should not be fear that you are experiencing... just some anxiety ahead of what will be a big change for you. Once you have it done you will be largely overwhelmed by the lack of reaction from those around you, and you will be wondering what the fuss was about.

    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.

    SMP turning blue after some years

    Hi, i am considering smp in the next years. But this technic really seems scary sometimes : Note from Ed: Picture and reference to another practitioner removed This looks scary and horrible... We always see smp after week or months on instagram or facebook.. but most people having it for 3-4 years and more.. a lot of times i see it turns like that

    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.

    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.

    2 Weeks away from my SMP, nervous

    Hey Iskdj I had this procedure done 3 years ago in New York by Jonathan Gerow (i think we can name names now), If you are getting this procedure done in New York INSIST that he does it. SMP is more art than science, If you are going to paint your head might as well let Picasso do it! I had all the anxieties that you have mentioned above and looking back probably the best decision I have ever made about top of my head wish had done it years ago. Keep it age appropriate, keep it suttle, nothing too dark or radical, let Jon guide you and you should be ok. Good Luck!

    waterproof shaver like R91?

    Hey guys, it's been a while.. think it is my 1 year anniversary of getting this treatment done in a week or so if I remember correctly. Amazing how something so simple have changed the way I am and feel? I totally forget that I am bald now when I am out and never worry about looking down without thinking people will see my badly receding hair/horse shoe. I won't lie, shaving every day is getting a bit annoying.. specially because the R91 seems to be hard to use sometimes as my hair is getting thicker with each shave. It always shaves better and less painful when I wet my hair with hot water but what I'd like to know is if anyone knows of a good shaver that can shave as short as the R91 and is water proof? It would be SO MUCH easier to shave it while I shower rather than having to shower then wet my head a few times to get it all shaved properly. I'll add some recent pics of how my head looks now as well for those who are curious what has happened to me.

    Unfortuantly I dont have an answer for that but im sure your dermatologist would look into it for you . Ive had extreamly dry skin/exma since birth and since I went bald at 19 ive now got very bad skin damage to my scalp , ive also since SMP had skin cancer on my head just below the hairline . When I was being dealt with for the skin cancer I told the dermatologist about my SMP which they loved and even took a HIS card off me and said they had other patients who this would be ideal for !! In your position I would definatly ask the question you have nothing to lose and by asking you may also help others with the same problem Good luck and when you get an answer post it on here to do your bit for others .

    SMP turning blue after some years

    He got the treatment a LONG time ago. He will even admit that the pigment colour does not blend with his real hair. If he got it these days im sure it would look much better and more natural.

    SMP and weight gain/loss?

    I can see how this becomes a discussion... but on the back of a "what if" rather than on any evidence. It is not something that has come up on here before which makes me think it is not a real issue. Then there is the anecdotal evidence of the many clients who were inspired to get into the gym and make significant changes to their body shape... with nobody ever mentioning a shifting hairline. I can only imagine the chat was inspired by people noticing that body tattoos can become distorted with body shape changes. But skin on the arm or elsewhere on the body stores fat subcutaneously in a very different way to the scalp. Very interested to hear the experience of our clients and their thoughts on this.

    I've had all my sessions performed in Toronto location about 4 years and one of the first individuals to have the procedure done before the Toronto office was officially open. SMP is still holding up well.

    SMP, FUE or nothing?!

    I wish I did nothing when I was younger. I had gotten hair transplants at 20 and I am now 49. I have very few options now because of my mistakes. I am still considering smp only to hide bad hair transplants, but I am still not convinced tattooing wouldn't just draw more attention. My advice: Shave your head, do nothing else, and be thankful you haven't botched your scalp...Best of luck

    Listen the practitioner, go light And not defined. Small dots and don’t go below where you’d have hair. But the practitioner will steer you right. I’d a small fake scar added to seem more authentic. Plus chicks dig Scars :-/ dont itch it and wait the proper time before shaving washing etc. I think you’ll be surprised how good you’ll look. Good luck. You have the perfect nut for it, very similar to me when I had my smp in Birmingham mine turned out pretty good in my opinion. keep us updated.

    Just had 2nd Session in Chicago

    Hey Guys, Just a quick story I wanted to share with you that wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for HIS. I work in an office with about 100 guys and 40 girls. There is one girl that works there that is considered the hottest one there. And she is unbelievably hot. So much so that I had even a hard time saying hi to her. If I showed you a picture you wouldn't believe it (I won't). She's one of those hot chicks that makes you feel ugly just by looking at her. Anyway, I heard from a friend that she thought I was cute. Long story short she spent the night at my place this weekend and this never would have happened without HIS. She asked why I cut my hair at one point and told her I like to keep it short. When we woke the next morning she was lying on me as the sun hit us in bed. She was as close as you could get and never questioned it. BTW she's 19 and i'm 45. I told her I was 36. Josh

    Called out twice in one month

    Great advice about not letting your hair grow out, that is a give away for sure. I can go about 2.5 days before needing to shave. I have never been called out for it. The more in shape and muscular a person is , the more the procedure looks great in my opinion. P.S. It seems younger women are more concerned about hair. The older a woman gets the less they seem to care.

    Called out twice in one month

    In my experience people are pretty obsessed. To them it makes no sense why someone would shave their head if they aren't balding and I must restate. I have been asked had I had smp done twice in two years. That's not so bad. And neither was based on looking at my head and I teach 200 teens every day who notice everything and they can't tell.

    Since my treatment, I've dated tons of women and have been living with my current partner for 2 years. Not once has my SMP been sussed out. This includes daily scalp rubs. Like the Shroud of Turin, the 1980 US Olympic hockey team beating the USSR for gold and Seal marrying Heidi Klum, SMP is a miracle.

    waterproof shaver like R91?

    Raybatesman said: Ps. I am not sure if I am too happy still as I was with the treatment before if I had to be 100% honest.. just feels much lighter than when I first got it done or maybe it is because I have it for a year now and used to it? Not too sure. Probably will need a top up in the future. freakin amazing!!! i cant wait to get HIS done to me. that picture out side at the beach looks fantastic.....so dam realistic
