  • Have you had SMP?
    Considering it
  1. SMP progress

    Yes, that's exactly what I thought. So once the SMP has settled it'll blend best after a fresh shave. Daily shaving it is.
  2. SMP progress

    After seeing a friend get their first two sessions done I've noted the following about SMP. It looks great for the first 4-5 days. Dark sharp small dots. Then they lighten and get blurrier/bigger and no longer match the 1-2 days worth of growth look (with the extremely small black hair follicle look), so it only gives a kind of shadow effect. That means SMP looks the best when your own hair is completely shaved off since it can't match the detailed and sharp look of real hair follicles. So in a way all those SMP photos are a bit miss leading with the fresh post treatment look. In 7 days everything changes a lot. In my opinion the treatment looks best right after the session vs settled and blurry. Can someone with SMP comment what happens after a few months? Does it get better or worse? Do the dots start to shrink again? Is it possible to end up with the freshly done SMP look eventually or is a blurry helmet the best SMP can do? The blurry helmet/shadow look is a million times better than having no hair of course.
  3. Opinions about the SMP hue

    How long does it take to shrink? I thought after a week it's pretty much the final look.
  4. Opinions about the SMP hue

    If I compare the shaved non SMP area above your ear to the top of your scalp they look quite different. My honest opinion - looks dark, patchy, uneven and big blurry dots on the top.
  5. SMP and niacin flushing

    I'm taking Niacin (B3) in very high dosages to bring my HDL (good cholesterol) up. What niacin does is cause a flushing effect on the skin which is explained below. I'm wondering if this flushing effect can some how affect SMP during the healing process and after? Can it make SMP blurry or the dots bigger since it expands the capillaries?
  6. So it's an edgy sunscreen basically?
  7. DIY SMP?

    10 year ago? What does your scalp look like now and how many sessions have you had done after the first treatment?
  8. Nobody cares. People usually are not that insecure that they look for outside opinions and they can decide things for themselves. Maybe you should do the same and stop looking for approval. If you are trying to get better with girls then confidence is a hundred time more important than your scalp.
  9. Yes a bald friendly grandfather not someone they want to have sex with. First one got 3 votes from girls and the second one 4 votes. You really need to get back to school. These "statistics" are not relevant at all. Btw what's wrong with looking like an inmate? Girls love bad boys.
  10. Obviously all of the would look better with a light hairline. Shiny bowling ball look with an infinite forehead doesn't look good on anyone. Kelly Slater looks like a young guy but the missing hair adds a good 15 years. I'd even say the missing hairline ruins his aesthetics. He's very handsome but a hairline would make him look healthy/young and add at least 3 points to his looks.
  11. Do you realise only 6 people voted for the second one? Everyone looks better with a hairline that shows where the face ends. No exceptions.
  12. I started shaving quite early when I noticed thinning during my mid-twenties so I've had a few people ask me that even without SMP. They usually said something like "why don't you grow your hair out a bit, it would look cool" etc. Now I've receded so much that nobody even asks anymore. Actually a woman did ask why I shave but I think she was just "testing" me. The answer is who cares. As a man you don't need to explain yourself to anyone. In fact doing so, in my opinion, shows weakness.
  13. 3 session in 2 weeks?

    I've read about people getting 3 sessions done in a short period of time. 2 weeks for example. That sounds ideal for someone like me who has to fly to another country to get it done. Would this cause any issues or unpredictable results? I've seen threads here where people complain about their SMP getting lighter after a month or two and only then getting another session to fix it. Is it possible to get it done well in two weeks?
  14. Post first session - underwhelmed.

    Just wondering how it works. Do you pay a fixed sum and they keep working on it until it's perfect?
  15. 2 or 3 days after shaving. This or the previous photo is the ideal look I would like to maintain + SMP. Anyone? Nobody has an opinion on this? If SMP was done to match this look or the previous 1 day after shaving look, wouldn't it look bad if I shaved it? What's the solution here?
