  1. 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!
  2. Need feedback

    looks great / can't notice / who cares
  3. How’s my first session looking?

    The big dots are scabs / wounds. Don't worry about them, they'll go away.
  4. SMP, FUE or nothing?!

    Your headshape and existing hair seems like it would be great for SMP. Go down to a no-guard buzz and see if you like it. It won't look that much shorter than what you currently have. IMO the white lines are perhaps a bit aggressive/young for mid-30s. You could fill in below your existing hairline with SMP, only the thinning spots, and no one would be able to tell it was fake at all.
  5. More details: I still use my wide-blade Remington HC4250 with no guard. I think it's the best device on the market. Works perfectly for my SMP. For the buzz cut, my SMP treatment may be a bit atypical though. I went with the pretty receded temples, which I'm extremely happy with. The SMP dots are almost entirely within/under my existing natural (though very thin) hairline. I still have 3D hair in the area, and the SMP just kind of mixes in and darkens the natural stuff. Works very well for 0-2, perhaps 3, days after shaving. On days 3 or 4+ the illusion starts to break a bit. Just looks like "bad balding hair" though, rather than "weird tattoo skin condition" or anything like that. I just make sure to shave it ASAP. The buzz cut might work less well on SMPs where the hairline has been dropped significantly. Or people who have a slick-bald head rather than the kind of diffuse thinning that I have. But for me and my SMP the buzz continues to be the best option, which is what I was doing prior to the SMP as well.
  6. First session smp

    repost the pics my man. We'll help with the hairline. I went with a very receded one myself and can offer suggestions.
  7. The second treatment has really darkened things up and filled in the density. Loving the new look! Looks even better in person. I'm actually most liking the 24-72 hours after shave timetable the most. The SMP mixes well with my existing hair, which I suppose I still kind of have a lot of, and gives the entire area a much darker showing, but without having any major 2D/3D mixing issues. Similar to how people use SMP for increased density / scalp coloring in otherwise long hair, I think.
  8. I went back to work today btw. Had been planning to work from home, but so I decided to just go in as the redness is down and there's no dramatic change. It's unrecognizable to coworers as a "new hairline", which is just as I wanted it. Basically just filling out my existing receded hairline with more density. Liking it a lot. The redness shown in the "after" pics was gone within 4 hours or so of treatment. Currently the individual dots are dark enough to match my hair, but the SMP area still looks significantly lighter overall than the hair. I guess this will be matched by the density of the 2nd session?
  9. I did my instagram hairline research, and this was the main pic I liked for what I was going for. The top pictures, before SMP! The shape of this guy's hairline/recession BEFORE the smp is perfect. He just needs a tad more in the temples where it's becoming an island. Looks good with the younger hairline SMP too, everyone has a different look they're going for.
  10. First treatment done! Worked with my practitioner to develop a pretty receded hairline. Hard angle into the existing temple hair + narrow peninsula. Curious what you think of the shape and if there's anything I should tweak in the second session. I think I'm really happy with the line we've done. The feathering on the line itself is great as well. Excited for the redness to go down, but very happy so far. Wearing a hat at the moment but can clearly see how this will be fine for non-hat wear very quickly.
