    Cutlass18 got a reaction from lskdj in Canceled my SMP (nervous) Need advice   
    Ive seen youtube videos of "Scalp Aesthetics" massacres;S
    Pics in videos made by the poor people that chose that owner to do their treatment
    He sucks royally
    He'll charge you $3500-$5000 ballpark figure...and fly himself right to you if need be
    Fu&k up ur head...take ur cash...and leave, ha
    The videos/pics I seen on youtube....oh fu&k!;S
    And the pics have the actual owner doing the procedure at the guys house...so theyre not fake people or pics trying to discredit that company
    Their $hit results over and over discredit them
    You should thank God that you cancelled with them, ha

    I don't think "stokie" went too dark...or contrast to skin is too much...for his skin tone?
    That guys pretty tanned
    He aint no pasty white hillbilly, ha
    The shade and blend looks perfect for his tanned skin tone
    If he went really light...it would barely be anything with his tanned skin
    And inside with no direct bright light overhead...that's how anyone will look
    SMP or full head of shaved hair
    Different lighting...different looks
    Cant forget that fact
    Look at Raymond's first #1 post
    Left pic looks light and normal...right pic looks too dark (cause theres a shadow on his head in that one)

    Can take up to 2 full months for full results...after a lasering
    So hopefully in the next 4 weeks it ll sort itself out
    I noticed the 2nd month things really start fading...not the first month
    Waiting really sucks, eh, but time doesnt ever stop! So youll get there soon enough
    It really does look like blasted ink under the skin..so just be happy its not ur skin

    Yah, possibly a few sessions...cheaper though...$100 bucks or so for simple quick sessions like a hairline break-up
    If the 1st one doesnt do enough for ur liking...the 2nd one should...cause he ll know the frequency has to be bumped up a notch or two
    Mine was 1.5 and 1.6 hertz?..for fading
    And 1.8 hertz for full removal
    So it only takes a couple decimal points difference to remove...just so youre aware
    Do you have a kind of plan on how you wanna break it up?
    Id recommend blasting lil chunks out fully...like lil triangles...cause the laser is a square, eh
    So he ll use half the square and blast lil chunks out...and then Id recommend using a lighter setting and fading the rest of the hairline in between these blasted out lil triangles
    I did it the first way...just got lil nibbles blasted out along the hairline...but realized that the lil triangles were too sharp kinda...and wasnt natural enough for me
    It still looked better than a sharper hairline obviously..but still could be better
    So went for another session...and figured it out...you need the entire hairline about 2-3mm or so faded all way around
    So with the lil chunks fully taken out..along with the whole hairline faded 2-3mm high...it gives it that perfectly natural blended look?? Know what I mean
    The beginning of a hairline doesnt have distinct thick dark hairs, right
    It looks better with a lighter shade for the first 2-3mms...with a couple darker dots in that...but not very many...barely any, right
    THEN ur hairline will blend and look natural...instead of dark distinct dots right from the beginning
    Do ya understand?...can you picture what Im trying to say
    And you wont need an SMP touch up session for ur hairline after the lasering
    You shouldnt
    Just give it the full 2 month post lasering time for full results...dont rush it
    Cause I noticed only like half fading results after a full month...sometimes not even half...and thought that kinda sucked
    But when 2 full months went by...the body fully removed or faded just right!
    If I wouldve rushed it...and had more sessions...then I wouldve fully removed things in places I just wanted fading
    Hard being patience with this whole SMP journey...we all went through it...but has to be done the slow way for best results

    Exactly
    Shaving all the time..and not using harsh shampoos

    Couldnt notice it checkingthisout?...I could see it across the room on my computer screen
    Maybe ur computer screen doesnt have the proper contrast
    It looks bad on mine
    Too bad glipglop you didnt see any of my numerous posts about that PicoSure laser;S
    You want the "Quanta Q plus C" laser!
    Gentle on skin...but blasts the ink underneath
    Youll have slight redness few days....then maaaybe some darker spots where the ink got blasted underneath
    But all goes away in a few weeks...and then takes about 1-2 months for full results
    Body will remove that blurred ink
    I can tell by looking that your pics arent of ink pigments blasted under the skin....its the actual skin that has been hyperpigmented
    Will it heal perfectly like it never happened??...not sure
    Did ya do any research on youtube or google..before ur lasering?
    I came across videos on youtube with the same thing you are dealing with now...and avoided that PicoSure completely
    Its too aggressive and messes with ur skin
    If ur white...youll get hyperpigmentation
    If ur darker race...youll get hypopigmentation
    Its gonna take a while for you to see what happens exactly
    But avoid that laser for sure
    If its not gone in 2 months time...go for a consultation elsewhere with that other laser...and see what they can do
    Cause you can remove hyperpigmentation with the correct laser
    So theres still hope for you my friend...just have to be patient unfortunetly...which can be very hard gong through something like this
    Might have to try covering up with a lil make-up??
    Or can you wear a hat at work?...for the time being...
    And why did they go so low on ur forehead?...or was ur SMP that low...
    Ive mentioned this laser stuff like 6-7 times at least...in different topics...just for this reason...to try and help anyone with lasering needs...and to warn people
    All I can say is I tried
    Everyones gotta do their own research before ANY kind of procedure is done to them, no matter what it is
    Please keep us updated in maybe 4-5 months??.....(2 month wait time now...and then 2 months after the proper laser)
    Interested to see what will come out for you with that proper laser...hopefully itll be like it never happened
    Also tan down the road after your proper laser session....it will camoflauge any bits of hyperpigmention...iiiiiifffffff it isnt fully fully removed, right
    Tan after its all said and done...after they tell you nothing more can be done basically...whatever that outcome is
    Whether its removed 90+%...or just a lil bit...tanning will blend things too
    Just a thought...trying to help

    Cutlass18 got a reaction from Spinner in touch up / long term results   
    new2smp...what ur talking about I think is when a person gets a few sessions with the same shade..and it all blends into a grey helmet
    You want every session a different shade...unless its just a minor touch-up right
    Ive seen that too
    No distinct dots...just grey base layer thats totally blended in
    Too many same shade dots side by side by side..all touching each other..all blended in
    Thats no good;S
    Must be 3D with multiple shades
     
    But thats how it works...the original dots fade to grey base layer..then you get fresher dots on top
    Its as if you already had 2 sessions done...and ur doing ur 3rd session basically
    So its no different from the first time you got SMP done...just that you are like 2 sessions ahead already
    You need that grey base layer...its super important
    Or else youd look like someone took a felt-tipped pen to ur head
    And no grey base in between the darker dots
    There has to be grey in-between the dots..or else its too spotty
    Pale white pasty scalp in-between darker distinct dots looks fu&ked up
     
    Also depends on what the person looks like when they shave their head too
    Do they have dots where their remaining hair is?
    Some people after shaving their head cant see any hair follicles
    So they need a lighter SMP grey treatment
    They wont get away with distinct dots maybe??
    Whether you have thick or thin hair matters
    And dark or light

    So many questions, ha
     
    Long term fading...
    You might not want any touch-ups...cause itll look real natural at an older age...just let it slowly fade
    And it wont fade away to nothing..like pre-SMP..youll still have something covering ur bald areas
    Maybe 50 yrs from now...it might fade to nothing, ha
     
    ACV...
    Id imagine it would sting like a bitch after each session...and would avoid it totally
    Why take any chances
    Vinegar is really good for cleaning things...and why fu&k with fresh ink in ur skin with that penetrating ur skin??
    Your skin fully absorbs whatever you put onto it...so that vinegar will be with the ink in those layers of skin
    Why take the chance
    Start foil shaving your head everyday...and your dandruff should clear up
    It takes all the deadskin off great...and freshens ur scalp
    Unless youre using harsh soaps/shampoos...or soaking ur head with lots of tap water (thats all chlorinated)
    Thats why ur scalp has dandruff probably...too dried out
    Put some oils on that dome!;P
    Nighttime is best...an hr or two before bed...then wipe most off...so you dont oil up ur pillow case every night...and so its not all shiney during the day
    And you want nice healthy skin before SMP for best results
    Or else youre gonna be bleeding like a bit&h...and it can cause issues sometimes...pooling ink (big dots);S
     
    And MAX hair length...
    Basically stubble
    Youre existing hair should be shaved smooth in every direction
    Once stubble starts growing out (24 hrs usually)...its time to shave again
    It is annoying, ha, but a must for not having that 3D stubble look
    48 hrs MAX from a skinhead shave

    There was a few bad reviews recently
    And we dont know what the truth is;S
    Someone could do 1000 amazing SMP jobs...but just 2 or 3 bad reviews online...and he's all of a sudden a bad tech??
    Cant be like that
    And sometimes its not the techs fault
    Just the person cant handle the needling
    Their skin isnt healthy?...too dry? or too thin?..where the needle goes too deep into the more watery layers of skin and pools?
    Giving bigger dots
    So not always a techs fault
    But Im sure the best of the best SMP techs make mistakes
    They cant do thousands and thousands of 100% perfect dots every single time year after year after year, ha
    Its just not possible for zero mistakes ever
    I dont know why some people just cant understand that fact
    And theres always laser to fade or fully remove things
    So its never the end of the world

    I think one bigger gash on the back of my head faded a lit bit...Ill have to really look hard again and see
    But its not noticable...it blends in right
    Cause the cuts go in between most of the darker dots you have, only affecting some
    Cause your last session has the darkest shade, right
    So that shade is not super dense...the darkest dots are spread out a lil more
    Its not like a solid coloured in tattoo (of the same shade) that now has a very noticable slash in it, right
    Any real cuts naturally camoflauge themselves into the matrix of dots, right
    Youd need a magnifying glass to pin point where you cut yourself in the past
    And that was a decent gash for me..and still practically nothing
    Youd have to get cut with something pretty wide..for anything noticable to affect ur SMP
    Like a big flathead screwdriver...dragged across ur head the flat way...thats like 1 cm wide...and deep!
    And even if you get a real deep cut on ur scalp...and it removes the ink when it heals...who cares
    Itll make it look even more natural with a scar on ur head
    Most people have at least 1 if not a few
    And even when you get SMP...not every single dot sticks anyways
    Some disappear completely
    So having perfectly spaced SMP dots that all stick isnt want you want anyways
    Doesnt look natural or normal
    You should have light dots...medium dots...and some darker dots...so you have that 3D effect...and random looking

    I felt like His hair and Ian Dennis were just as determined as I was to get the results that I wanted after getting a botched job done at another scalp micropigmentation establishment in Houston Texas. To emphasize on how bad the botched job was....I thought I was going to have to have it removed by a professional. Not only did Ian fix the botched job, he did a miracle transformation. My only regret is not going to see him first. Scalp Micropigmentation is the best thing out there when done properly, by the right person and company.

    Anymore than that guy has...it gets too sharp...too dense...and too smooth...and just ruins your whole head by having a stupid hairline choice

                 Not everybody wants temples done...I like temples personally...but looks good either way...everybody has their preference
     
    2nd pic - looks utterly ridiculous, you can spot that fake crap across the street!;S I feel sorry for that guy, cause he thinks it looks good?? And nobodys told him the truth
     
    3rd pic - obviously not shaved down like we shave...but same point...when you got such a dense and straight hairline...its ridiculous looking! Like a helmet!
     
    4th pic - another helmet...YIKES! But the customer picked it...so thats what he got, right
     
    5th and 6th pic - again not shaved down like us...but you get my point...of a nice hairline shape but jagged edges taken out....not some weird perfectly   
                               smooth SMP'd hairline...maybe round the corners as to not have such a square corner on each side...looks better a touch rounded...
                               but you get my point about the jagged hairline
     
    I think theres waayyyyy too many perfectly smooth SMP'd hairlines
    The jaggedness is what you want
    I know it will look stupid when you draw a jagged hairline on yourself with a white eyeliner pencil...or after each session when the ink is wet and real dark
    But when it heals youll see that the jaggedness looks 100% natural
    Its just hard to do that with the needle and even the white pencil
    Cause youd have to draw the EXACT same jagged hairline everytime
    You dont want ANY dots in those missing jagged spots
    Or else they get filled in...and then you have the usual smoother SMP'd hairline
    I think its better to get the usual hairline done...and then hit that $hit with a laser for the jaggedness
    Cause the laser is a square, right...not a circle
    And that square beam makes perfect lil jagged chunks get taken out
    It can still be done with the needle...just saying its extra hard
    And the stupid white eye liner pencils are too soft and cannot be used for that kind of detailed jaggedness
    Maybe an eyebrow pencil might work better...cause its not as soft...and can be sharpened to a sharper point
    But even that is still hard to do

    Now a regular tat covers more surface area and maybe a touch deeper...causing more damage to the skin
    So it scabs up more...but do you wanna be knocking off scabs on a regular tat somewhere on ur body?
    Or just leave it till they naturally fall off basically
    Your head...your money
