Hi guys been a while since I posted on here, it's been roughly two years since my treatment so thought I'd give a update on my situation.

At the end of last year I noticed some fading in my crown,scar and bits on top of my scalp so decided to go for a assessment in Birmingham, they agreed there was some fading in them areas and quoted me I think £300 which was fine however i wasn't concerned enough to shell out the money and thought I could live with it how it was, well moving forward to present day the fading in the crown has been considerable, the scar has maybe faded a little further and the top has stayed roughly the same.

I'm hoping the cost for a touch up has stayed roughly the same as when I was quoted, I'm pretty pleased that its took two years for the need of a touch up however im pretty gutted my crown faded so much.

I will post some pictures tomorrow evening for you guys to look at and give me your opinions,

Cheers

Looking at the date you have posted it looks over 2 and a half years. I was advised 3-5 years is the norm but some are less some are longer, so you are at the average end of the scale. I think spending £300 every few years is a fair price by HIS. I have seen some on here that fade a lot quicker. Doesn't it depend on the skin how long it lasts?

I assumed it's 500-£600 for a touch up. Might be wrong. Maybe depends on extent and area to reapply

Wow two and halfs years that's gone quick,yeh £300 is fair enough after two years.
They initially had trouble putting the pigments in crown and scar hence why I needed 4 treatments, I think it tends to be the areas with the most trouble holding the pigments.
I am getting a little anxious and paranoid now as as I'm developing what looks like a bald patch over my crown and my scar doesn't seem so covered, so think il need to get it touched up this year for sure.

Get the touch up Haircules you will feel better. My strategy is one very light and quick touch up every year so I keep it fresh all the time. I don't see how someone can wait 5 years to do a touch up.

Welcome back, good to hear from you again. If its bothering you, get it done because it will keep on bothering you. Lets have a look at your photos first though, so you can get a second opinion.

 

I assumed it's 500-£600 for a touch up. Might be wrong. Maybe depends on extent and area to reapply

 

It depends on hours in the chair so yes, the cost is usually down to a combination of the scalp area and density needed.

Haircules, until you make a decision, consider my inexpensive eyebrow pencil trick.  Purchase one from a women's cosmetic counter and place little dots on your scalp, then rub in small circles.  Will stay dark all day, during a light swim or medium sweating.

Any particular amount of penciled on dots required HH? Or just a general amount throughout scalp. Might try this for myself.

Just grab a decent women's eye liner pencil and make little dots on the scalp (particularly the lighter areas) and then rub in circles until everything is well blended. (say, with the sides)  My wife told me to try this trick and it worked.

It's hard for me to tell off of those pics, as they are pretty blurry... also the one from behind might have some shadow/light play going on that is making it more pronounced than it actually is.  I cant really say for sure based on those pics.
