  1. Buzz cut number 1 clippers

    You have basically the PERFECT type of recssion for SMP. Very similar to mine, but you have even more remaining hair. My advise is to keep your existing hairline. Don't lower it. Your current temple recesion looks "mature" in a good way; the only real aesthetic issue you have is the sparseness in the middle. Use SMP to fill in the loss areas, but keep the hairline. You will absolutely be able to use a 1mm no-guard buzz. It'll all blend together to eyes and to touch and look great. Buzz every 2-3 days. But if you take the temple recession down any further you risk looking weird/unnatural/young. And risk having a harder time mixing with a 1mm buzz. Check out my topics for my decision with fairly similar hair.
  2. I feel my real hair, as if I had a very short buzz cut. Which I do. Just feels a bit less dense than on the sides. SMP is GREAT for diffuse thinners that still have some hair/stubble in the area but just need help visually filling it in.
  3. Without a doubt the best thing I've done for my appearance. Love it. So happy with the work. Looks like I have a slightly-receding buzz cut now; not "bald" at all. Post pics of your head!
  4. Need feedback

    looks great / can't notice / who cares
  5. How’s my first session looking?

    The big dots are scabs / wounds. Don't worry about them, they'll go away.
  6. SMP, FUE or nothing?!

    Your headshape and existing hair seems like it would be great for SMP. Go down to a no-guard buzz and see if you like it. It won't look that much shorter than what you currently have. IMO the white lines are perhaps a bit aggressive/young for mid-30s. You could fill in below your existing hairline with SMP, only the thinning spots, and no one would be able to tell it was fake at all.
  7. More details: I still use my wide-blade Remington HC4250 with no guard. I think it's the best device on the market. Works perfectly for my SMP. For the buzz cut, my SMP treatment may be a bit atypical though. I went with the pretty receded temples, which I'm extremely happy with. The SMP dots are almost entirely within/under my existing natural (though very thin) hairline. I still have 3D hair in the area, and the SMP just kind of mixes in and darkens the natural stuff. Works very well for 0-2, perhaps 3, days after shaving. On days 3 or 4+ the illusion starts to break a bit. Just looks like "bad balding hair" though, rather than "weird tattoo skin condition" or anything like that. I just make sure to shave it ASAP. The buzz cut might work less well on SMPs where the hairline has been dropped significantly. Or people who have a slick-bald head rather than the kind of diffuse thinning that I have. But for me and my SMP the buzz continues to be the best option, which is what I was doing prior to the SMP as well.
  8. First session smp

    repost the pics my man. We'll help with the hairline. I went with a very receded one myself and can offer suggestions.
  9. The second treatment has really darkened things up and filled in the density. Loving the new look! Looks even better in person. I'm actually most liking the 24-72 hours after shave timetable the most. The SMP mixes well with my existing hair, which I suppose I still kind of have a lot of, and gives the entire area a much darker showing, but without having any major 2D/3D mixing issues. Similar to how people use SMP for increased density / scalp coloring in otherwise long hair, I think.
