  1. Red tinge after smp?

    Understood. Look forward to hearing what your practitioner says, I have never heard of "red" being an issue before, and not just through my long association with HIS, I mean anywhere ever - not even from the worst of the worst cowboy's clients posting their tragic images. There is definitely nothing in the pigment that can go red. Maybe the answer will come from a dermatologist.
  2. You can always have an initial consultation, just to get the ball rolling, over skype.
  3. I need to wash my hair!

    So do we take it Greece is not so much your location as your state of mind? Lots of sympathy for you. Well, as much as a bald man can have for a fella with hair trouble. Best advice is to stick to the aftercare guidelines... As for minoxidil... regardless of whether you have an SMP or not you would do well to find and use versions that do not use alcohol - they're out there.
  4. (Considering SMP) Överväger SMP i nära framtid, men..

    Those sharp hairlines were in demand a few years back, when Jamie Foxx was wearing one and carrying it off extremely well. It is quite rare for a client to request that look now, almost invariably the feathered edge is preferred. This is not only achievable, it's the standard at HIS.
  5. Need feedback

    I am going to agree with everyone else on the thread, this is an outstanding piece of work. Not that I am disputing what you are seeing in the mirror, which I can only put down to the pigment struggling with some scar tissue. It is normal to be hyper-critical of your own treatment and people will usually insert a caveat about how happy they are with theirs (I worry in bright light, I'm concerned about the hairline being too high/low, is it too dark/light). It is just to get used to. Some get SMP and do not tell a soul, others share. Have you asked anyone in person for their opinion? I'm struggling to get past your wearing hats, you really need to stop that and build up some confidence in that amazing treatment. People do not notice flaws in a treatment much worse than yours, you will be surprised.
  6. SMP turning blue after some years

    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.
  7. Red tinge after smp?

    Did you wear your hair shaved before SMP? I ask because I have areas of differing pigment across my scalp and would never have known if I hadn't gone bald... I can imagine that if you shaved just prior to treatment the shock of that new look might have distracted you from more subtle things. Equally it could be an unusual reaction, some sort of lengthy inflammation - in which case time will heal. Have you asked your practitioner for their opinion?
  8. Retinoids can't be used if you get SMP?

    Try sending a PM to a member called David1963, he has a long history with similar issues and is generous with his advice.
  9. Retinoids can't be used if you get SMP?

    Hi Semel. Thanks for posting the question... and sorry to read about your skin issues. I do not think you will have an issue with the active ingredients. They are acting on the surface and the SMP pigment is inserted beneath and out of harms way. I will put your question to the HQ team and if anything different or additional comes back will post the update here.
  10. Transplant scar concealment

    Do you have a before photo you could post? This looks pretty good to me. Hard to say whether an additional session might improve things further... what did your practitioner advise?
  11. 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.
  12. Hair line is too dark.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you know who Thierry Henry is... If you don't then google him but you could be his little brother. Congratulations on your outcome, well done for sticking with it and thanks for coming back here to complete the story for us.
  13. SMP for sandy blonde not shaved head? pics to show?

    If you have significant hair loss it will be a challenge to keep your remaining hair long after an SMP treatment... The recreated buzz cut look does not blend well with hair of any length, it would need to be shaved down to match.
  14. Nervous and anxious about my procedure

    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.
  15. How close down do you have to shave?

    You might look at the Pitbull too... works for me. Quick and easy.
