Strip Scar Camouflage – How Close To Shave?

Recommended Posts

I’m sorry if this has already been discussed on another thread but I’m considering getting SMP to help camouflage a strip scar. My skin is pale and my hair is dark brown. I understand from other threads that generally speaking the closer you can shave your hair the more effective the treatment will be. However I really don’t want to shave my head with a bic style razor. Therefore my question is, can you get away with shaving your head daily with electric clippers without a guard? 

 

Apologies, I can't seem to post pictures or links (apparently because I have less than 10 posts) but the two gentlemen currently pictured at the bottom of the 'Hair transplants and scars page' (Home > Treatment > Hair transplant and scars) seem to have their heads shaved with clippers. Would you agree?

 

Also I’m realistic about the results. I’m not aiming for the scar to be completely invisible. My hope is that it will simply be far less noticeable to passers-by.

 

Thank you in advance for any response.

i think for a better blend, its probably better to bic cut....but it leaves your head completely visable to any flaws or imperfections

 

im more interested in a 0 buzz cut and see if they can blend away the contrast of the hair and scar area

Welcome to the forum. Clippers on a zero would probably be ok, but you would have to cut your hair every day without fail. Personally I think you'd do that for a while, then decide that shaving is just easier.

 

So you're aware, you don't have to use a razor. I shave my head with a Remington electric face shaver.
