Hi all, I am an ex hair transplant patient or victim, who had 4 bad treatments, which have left 4 bad scars on the back of my head (I would say hypertrophic type - pink and risen). I have not had any HTs for over 10 years and I do not plan to have any more. The top of my head I'm fine with but I'm paranoid about these scars. I have kept my hair long and have tried many things to temporarily keep those scars hidden. I have been reading up on SMP and I think this can be a good solution to permanently cover this region, which I have to cover daily. I live in Birmingham UK, and HIS Hair sounds like the most reputable clinic in my area. They recommended 2 sessions a week apart (with possibility of a third) after a month. A few things concern me. 1. After asking, I have been told that the practitioner will indeed need to shave the area. This is a concern as I typically have the back long to conceal them. There’s a one week gap between Session 1 and Session 2 and I would like to avoid shaving on the first treatment if the scarring will be noticeable. I raised these concerns with the Client service team who have stated that if I wish to do it with longer hair, the consultant will make it work but ideally a shave during the second session would be beneficial. I think I will agree with this as I don't want the result to be compromised but after shaving the back, there's no going back. It will either look seamless or really noticeable and then I will have nothing to conceal it with. What do you think? 2. I thought the procedure is low risk but then I heard about the results being too light or even worse too dark, which requires painful laser removal and then your back to square one. I have been through painful hair transplant procedures (including corrections) and don't want a repeat of this. On average what % coverage can I expect from SMP and with what length? Is it worth the risk? I have done a good job in hiding the scars and don't want to jeopardise this. Would love the thoughts from Practitioners as well as those who have scars and have had tried SMP to conceal them. Thanks

I shaved my head to a #1 i think and took these pictures. How worried should I be with this scar? Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect with SMP? I am planning on going to the San Franciscio clinic. Any help, advice, tips or comments is appreciated, thank you
