been almost 2 weeks now since my 2nd treatment and wanted to show my pics and get your opinion on it.
It has settled a bit and looks quite uneven and patchy. Especially in certain lighting conditions or angles. Not just because of direct or strong light, but certain angles it really shows and people have made comments on it. After my 1st session, things were looking ok. Although there was the common fading everyone talks about, it was even and maybe just a few patches of excess fading. It was not noticeable the way it is now.
At the 2nd session the practitioner commented that it was one of the better post first treatments hes seen, and that my skin accepted the ink very nicely, but that I was still healing as I was still significantly red on the parts of my scalp that had SMP done. The skin was peeling a bit as part of the natural healing process. I noticed that myself too, the result of 1st treatment looked good, looking back on things now and in some ways it looked better than the combined result of both treatments.
During the 2nd session the practitioner had to stop many times as the flakes of my peeling skin was blocking the ink or doing something that was causing problems in the needle. And it seems like he had to clean the needle or the machine to get it to work the way it should.
I do not know what happened in that 2nd session, but it just doesn't look good now. My own opinion is that I still needed time to fully heal from the 1st session. If one can not heal properly from that first session, then it can cause damage from the 2nd treatment I believe. The 2nd session can cause scar tissue to develop and cause certain parts of the SMP to fade very quicky or even almost disappear. As an example, in the 2nd session I asked the practitioner to fill in the section in the temples (which was not done in the 1st session as my own request) and that SMP there as held up very nicely and the pigmentation is very crisp. That was done just one time on fresh skin.
I have contacted HIS hair customer service email with pictures and no response, it has been about 5 days. I have no problem going for 3rd session, but I just wanted to see what they had to say about this. Hopefully I can get some help and support here, thanks.
