Had a 'top up' in Manchester recently - updated machines, thinner needles, a lot quicker and great practitioner. Trouble is that it has faded very quickly within a few weeks and now looks like it use to before the treatment and expenditure

Now (faded very quickly)IMG_1589.JPG  IMG_1588.JPG


Due to the rapid fading I feel that this hasn't achieved what I wanted - please advise

To me that looks pretty perfect. Depending on what you want but it looks natural and blended

I agree with permanent vacation. Immediately after doesn't lookl super natural. It really shows how we all want different things. I feel like a lot of people would be on here complaining if theirs was as dark as your after photo. Personally i think there could be a balance between the two. I'd call customer service if you aren't satisfied.

Well it's not really an accurate comparison. The latest photos are under much brighter light, even your skin is a completely different tone.

The end result of SMP should look as if you just shaved your head. For your skin tone it actually looks right color. Even dark. As long as it is even and not patchy and you can see individual follicles pigmented that should be your concern I believe.

Agreed that the last set of pics you took are under harsh lighting in comparison to the before and immediately after treatment pictures.  


Try taking pics with the same lighting as the first two for an apple to apple comparison.

Thanks for the input and I agree with the lighting difference in the photos because in some lights it looks darker than others. I'll see how it goes in the next few weeks. Still think SMP is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Can't imaging being without it. When I look at photos before I ever had my first treatment years ago it confirms my belief that SMP is quite a transformation for the better and money well spent.

If, and it can happen, you have experienced an unusually high degree of fading then speak to the clinic... HIS do not wash their hands of you and can be counted on to do the right thing.
