Hi,

 

After lurking in the forums for an year I finally took the leap of faith and booked for three sessions on Jul 3, Jul 16 and Aug 16.

I have a HT scar from ear to ear ( what was i thinking)

I went for the patch test on 6/21. So far so good no side effects. Hurt a bit more than I liked though. I need  to take some pain killers before the main sessions. I am posting my results from patch test. Special shout out to Landlord, Hatinghats and Chicagobuzz for helping me to take this decision.IMG_0850.JPG IMG_0852.JPG IMG_0854.JPG IMG_0855.JPG .

 

These are the pics taken today.

I have finished my first session and this how my scar looks now. There is still a long way to go. I hope my second session would give me more confidence. There are couple of areas right abode the ears on both sides which needs a lot more blending. Guys let me know how it looks. Does it look reasonable or ugly?image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

This is how it looked with 1 day growth. I was kinda hoping to get away with a week or 10 day long hair. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

How was your session today MaxG today? Was it less or more painful than your first one?

This is only 1 day growth? Hard to believe... You will have to get used to a very closely shaved look. I already love it ;-)

I wouldn't worry too much for your scar. It's the perfect solution to hide it.

The first set were with 1 week growth. The second one is 1 day. I didn't shave it to the bone though. Actually my practitioner trimmed it. Damn I am nervous about the pain level tomorrow. I am going fully loaded with medications. I should have given good 2 weeks between sessions. For me the the scar is the main concern. I feel so burdened byit.

OK I get it you cheated. You have to shave to the bone mate ;-)

For the pain, don't worry it's something you can handle. Try to relax and breathe during the treatment it makes it better. Really stressing is not good. Plus ask for breaks. But if you read the forums you will see everyone reacts very differently to this. I didn't feel anything at all at the first treatment. Good luck for tomorrow ;-)

A weeks worth of growth is usually an absolute no-no. Most clients can't get away with any more than 2 days growth, some even less.

 

There are exceptions though when the purpose of the treatment is primarily for scar camouflage, as long as there is sufficient density across the scalp and the hairline stays where it is. Clients who tick all these boxes are very rare though.

 

I would suggest you would be far happier shaving to the bone. I know you're probably concerned about your scar showing through, but trust me you'll get used to it and you'll feel liberated in the long run.

I had my third session last week. I was absolutely over the moon right after my session as the scar was almost invisible. It was one of the happiest moment of my life. But alas my happiness has short lived as the scar started to pop up 2 days later and now its still very much visible. I am completely shattered. I don't know if it is the hair growth over the past 2 days that makes the scar visible or is it my scar not holding onto the pigments. Guys have a look at it and let me know what is going on. I will see 2 more weeks and will call up HIS for some touch up on my scar. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

 

These pics are right after the sessionforum3.JPG forum4.JPG forum7.JPG forum11.JPG .

Also I look bald under light. do you think there is not sufficient density?

Two days of growth is too much. That's why they are visible. Shave to the bone with the R91 and post pictures and I will tell you what I think. I am pretty happy how the ink is holding up after 7 days post session #3 but I have to shave closely otherwise it's visible.

BTW we already told you this, you really get to be used to the daily shaving if you want to live the fuller with your SMP.

Hi IncredibleHulk

 

I had two scars, each as big as you. The staple marks were also visible but they are not anymore. On some very specific lighting you can still see the scar, mainly because it doesn't reflect the light the same way. Scars do not take the ink the same way, so on session #1 they are very careful on this to assess this.

 

Your scars are still pretty visible to me, but you are just after session 1, there is still lot of work to be done. You will achieve must better results than this at the end. Plus I can see you have been pretty careful when shaving especially around the scar where I can still see some hair. I think shaving this time was good to make up your mind about how it went, I would shave again AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE with a R91 (still being gentle with the razor though) just before your next session. The practitioner needs this to make the perfect blending.

I can feel you are very stressed about this. Results from SMP vary a bit, some want a broken hairline some don't, Some want a denser look, some don't. But at the end it works, make your head appear shaved as long as you shaved to the bone (even 1mm is too much) and hides really really well the scars. For me the most stressing part wasn't to know if it will success or not, but if people will notice it. It's a work we have to make on our mind, sport a new look and be used to get no more hair on scars because they won' be very much visible at the end.

 

So relax, wait for more comments but you are just after session 1. I know you will achieve much better results at the end than what shown on these pictures.
