  1. Medical conditions and SMP

    dear people I'm considering SMP and would appreciate any advice. In recent years I've been treated for cancer (radiotherapy, chemotherapy). I'm in remission but still take medication. I lost some hair due to chemotherapy 2 yrs back which never really grew back and I was beginning to thin anyhow. I'm basically fed up with the state of my hair and I'm interested in SMP as a low maintenance solution and a boost to my confidence. However given the battering my immune system has had over the years and the high probability that at some point my cancer will return I need some informed advice. I have MRI scans every 6 months and this might be an issue in terms of the ink if it has a high metal content. If anyone has been in a similar position it'd be great to hear of your experiences Many thanks in advance Moth
  2. Hi guys, Here is my patch test results from the new york office. My doctor helped me to take the picture with high details. I know they are using 3 pointed needle. To my surprise the image indicates there are three tiny dots for every punch instead of one dot as I original thought. Is this normal?
  3. Patch Test #1 Done

    Hello gents Got my first patch test 2 weeks ago in Miami Excellent customer service Asked for a light color and small dots cause I shave with a razor everyday and Im not going for a "buzz" look Practitioner used #36, made small dots on a scar I have and bigger ones next to it Did not hurt much Test cost $100 First 6 photos - 1 week after treatment - freshly shaved - dots are too dark - 5 of 6 photos taken under SMP "unfriendly lightning" photos 7 through 9 - 12 days after treatment - dots seem to have "shrunk" and gotten a bit lighter - I had a hard time seeing the dots so I waxed that area after, did hurt a bit - Photos were taken in SMP friendly lightning because the camera needed 4that was not available - Photos 9, 10 - 2 weeks after treatment - just a close up under SMP friendly lightning I will take some more photos under SMP "friendly and unfriendly" lightnings soon. Dots look smaller/lighter and closer to what I d like but I think #36 is still too dark even after "fading". Id like the light, freshly shaved look shown on photo # . Which shade do you guys recommend ??? THANK YOU !
