  1. Yes , I was wondering the same , especially not about razor but clippers with zero guard.
  2. No, I didnt combine fue with smp, just done smp with Beauty Medical , Italy. Now , I will go to a laser removal clinic next month to get it removed. I will write about my experience probably in another thread , as a smp user for 7 years.
  3. This is one of my initial thoughts while I first started researching for a ht. Make yourself a good hairline with fue and keep your head buzzed/shaved. I thought that only smp would achieve this however as a smp user, it does not.(I will write that up in another thread.) I really don't see any approach like this since many nw6 can use their shaved head with a hairline that frames the face . As for the fue scarring, I myself wouldn't care anything about it since i believe it does not good bad at all. (Again, my opinion.) I have a friend who had fue who razor shaves once a week and don't mind the fue scar at all and have the shade of a hairline.
  4. Melvin , that is a great example and this should clarify my point. Lets say that Jack and Danny went to a ht clinic at the time of the first picture. What should be the doctors approach on this? It might be said that as you pointed out , Devito seems more eligible for a ht whereas Jack might not be a suitable candidate. However after 40 years, where does this stand ? How does ht doctors decide on that risk? Edit: I am really not talking about extreme nw7 cases , I was just mentioning the horse shoe pattern of a regular nw5-6.
  5. I have never had a original plan of FUT , on the contrary I never think any other option besides fue.
  6. Hello all, Long time haven't been here, member since 2009. I will write my hairloss story and how to approach from now on soon but I have seen that many things have changed since the last time I was researching this detailed, like 7 years ago. As an old timer , I was here when FUT was the golden standard and FUE was not discussed as much and nearly all ht receivers are going for h&w , rahal fut mega sessions. Now it is obvious that fue got more and more popular worldwide and I see people traveling more places to get their procedure done. My question will be about fue donor area. I am no doctor or an expert but in nearly every single fue procedures I have seen, the grafts are taken way above the what I call "wide horse-shoe " pattern. I really don't know if doctor's does not accept patients with that pattern but also I seem to understand how can they be %100 that those patients's hair still remain when they become 60 or 70? I attach some pictures to get the idea of what I mean, english is not my native language. Also adding to the pictures, I have seen people (and I am sure most of you have seen) a horse shoe pattern that stays strong on sides( not going to nw7) but going deeper to the neck, more like v-shaped. I am really curious about this , any thoughts are well appreciated.
  7. By the time I am waiting for Milena’s reply, I am posting this picture which I have taken today. The main concern of mine regarding removal of the smp can clearly seen in this picture. Notice that the smp areas are “whiter” than my regular hair right now. Smp being this color concerns me most. I am trying to get to my skin tone , which is obviously darker than the smp. I have scheduled an appointment for a chemical peeling this saturday , which is still a big question for me. How will it work? Does temporary smp will fade out through skin color or will it become more white?
  8. Hello Milena, Thank you for your answers. If you allow , I’d like to discuss more on this , especially requiring your comments and thoughts. After your answers , I have come to a conclusion that laser may not be the direct solution. It will definitely see the dark pigments, but the light ones are probably going to stay. It is uncertain that how will the light pigments gonna look like in terms of estethics which is the most important issue. Also , laser have its own unknown questions like how many sessions it will require ,the healing time between sessions , possible scarring and how pigments will react to laser especially. I’d really like to hear what you think about this, especially for my situation and also for the people who thinks about temporary smp. As for the other method that we talked, chemical peeling ; has its own pros and cons. In my opinion , well applied peeling will help the pigments fade without depending on their light or dark color(please correct me if I’m wrong.) The waiting time between laser is minimum 6-8 weeks where chemical peeling can be performed in 21 day cycles, as I was informed. However, the method “trichopigmentation” as you mentioned repeatedly different, both for the pigment type and depth of the pigment.Also, you are clearly pointing out that this is completely temporary and should not compared with neighter regular tattoo nor any other smp applications. So it is a world of unknown questions both for me , and the dermatologists that I have talked so far. First , it is impossible for me to find any dermatologists or plastic surgeon in my country that is familiar with this technique.Secondly, you uniquely own temporary smp which is accepted by many hair transplant clinics and doctors. So , please understand my concerns about especially with chemical peeling path, eventhough in my opinion would be the safest and non-harmful after your reply(again, correct me if I’m wrong.) I know I am talking and thinking too much about it, I’d like to know what would be the “right” way to go if chemical peeling applied. What would be the right chemicals, acids etc to use and what kind of application should be applied. If you can guide me through this , either yourself or you can give me an info about a doctor , dermatologist that I can talk with which is familiar with your technique, I would highly appreciate it.
  9. Milena, Thank you for the open and honest answer. Please be sure that I have not used any implies or bad words against your procedure,just quoted what I hear from a laser removal clinic.If they follow this forum, I believe they have a right to explain what they explain to me on the phone. Addingly, I know we have talked many times about this via e-mail, discussing the reversibility via this thread would be much more informative both for me and anyone considering temporary smp. You have explained the reabsorption in its scientific nature, however in my situation; it did not quite happened the way it should happened. So I will repeat the questions that we have talked, which I am sure you will be informative again. 1-What would be the best way to accelerate reversibility besides laser? I know we have talked about chemical peeling. Please explain further about what type of chemical peeling should be done , what part of the dermis that the smp stand(especially having many sessions like me) , what would be the success of it and what type of acids can be used. I am asking this because based on my research online and discussing about it with dermatologists, removing a tattoo with some peeling is nearly impossible and also very risky for scarring, so please inform further how temporary smp can work with this. 2- After doing the “negative treatment” as you mentioned , the coloring of the pigments have become lighter. Since the laser procedure is more successful on seeing darker colors, would that be a problem for laser to remove it or does this mainly depend on pigments depth on the skin rather than the color? 3- As a person which had applied the temporary smp procedure like me on both sides(dark pigments and light pigments) , does the later procedures(light pigments) stand on top side and the previous ones on deeper ? How does this work in terms of fading out?
  10. Ok since no one is commenting, I am giving the updates to my laser treatment research. On other threads, I have found the user bustamove had done laser treatment to his smp and he recommended beauty care nederland. I have contacted with them, tell them about my situation and sent them the chemical composition of the pigments that Milena Lardi, Beauty clinic uses. Today I recieved a phone call from the laser clinic that they wont be doing a laser session to me because the chemical composition contains titanium oxide and iron oxide which they say it is poisinous to work with. This is becoming a scary situation for me right now. First , I have decided to go for Beauty Medical because of the treatments reversibility , which didn’t occured. Then now I am finding out that the pigments contain poison and dangerous. I have talked with Beauty Medical about this and they say that it contains very minimal amount of titanium which body will make it dissolve over time and definately not poisinous. However, laser clinic (beauty care netherlands) insistently says that they won t be doing the treatment because of this. Now I am attaching my pictures in order to make the situation clearer and I really, really need to hear some opinions and explanations. Note: You can see the laser test patch done at my frontal.
  11. Addingly , what I am curious about is; If someone undergoes on a smp clinic that claims permanent ink, laser should be the one and only option. However, I have done my smp with Milena Lardi , who is one of the most reputable ,most approved with her technique and claims that inks absolve in the body gradually. So , first I was skeptical about "lasers for tattoo removal" will see the ink. Also , if this procedure claims it's %100 percent irreversibly , where are those people? And what should be done to speed up the fading process besides laser? I really love to hear the opinions , expert thoughts , comments about my issue. Please don't make this thread dead since I am a bit desperate and undecided about this.
  12. I really dont want to post pictures right now because of my anonymity issues. All the community , please give your opinions and advices about my issue. I know Shapiro Clinic and some others use this technique. Also I know there are some smp clinica that uses Milena’s inks and needles only. I want to learn which laser suits best and also any other methods besides laser that can gradually fade the pigments out. best
  13. Hello , i haven’t been here for a long time ,maybe many new members don’t know me. long story short; I have had my first smp session in 2013 done by Beauty Medical , Italy. At that time i wanted more defined and darker color hairline. Jumping to 2016, my fading out process hasn’t been very well and therefore I started going back to Italy for having “negative pigment” sessions, which I remember done 3-4 times. Now, I admit that my procedure does not look bad or detectable but it clearly does not meet up with the expectation of “completely fading out in 2-3 years”. When I asked about this to the clinic, they always said that dissapearing differs from person to person and it depends on immune system. Also on my research , I have only found only one person that had this procedure dissapeared completely , who is Beauty Medical’s employee. I am not here to blame anyone or any clinic. However ,after 7 years from my initial treatment , I still have a tricopigmentation on my head which was not my plan when I started this. I am looking for a solution right now. From the clinic, they told me that the laser is the quickest way to have it removed. However , I am still looking for other solutions besides laser. So I am looking for some answers from the forum. Any suggestion from the clinics that uses Beauty Medical’s products and techinque and also some people that have done trichopigmentation. Also, anyone can suggest me a laser clinic in the Europe zone, or any other methods/producs that speed up the fading out process are highly appreciated. note: All my research about laser tattoo removal says that darker color removes better. Since my trico is not that dark, and differs from regular tattoo, I don t know how laser reacts to the pigments. I really appreciate any information about this.
  14. hairthere, thanks for the replies; both for pm and thread. However, as you can see from my photos, the fading is minimal to none even after 5 years. I am not here to offend anyone, clinic , company but I still think all of the clinincs, studios, companies that use this product should have an "answer" to a case like me , without offering laser treatment. I signed up for this knowing that this is NON-permanent treatment and I just seek for help right now, nothing else. And by this, I'm asking for some specific usage/regimen that i can use without having any social in complications. All thoughts are well appreciated.
