  1. Well as Melvin pointed out, it’s a bit fishy when someone creates an account just to seemingly drag up an old thread. Being on this forum for so many years you see behavior like this and it gets predictable. So you get the inclination it might be a competitor trying to slander my work. Or who knows, maybe it’s really a guy who just doesn’t think it’s good work. Cosmetic procedures can be subjective, and I never take that fact for granted. Either way he’s entitled to his opinion and to have a voice on the forum. That’s the beauty of free speech, right? Have a great weekend gents!
  2. Thank you JohnAC71! Dark skin presents its own unique set of challenges to work on but the results when done properly can have a big impact. The key is being patient as the pigment can take some time to develop and darken, so you never want to rush the process just to give the client immediate gratification. Below is the most challenging dark-skinned client I've had. His skin tone was nearly darker than my pigment (I only use medium brown as a base) so I had to tone it up with a black agar, and we needed a fourth session. The result is still subtle but thankfully it did make a difference and a
  3. As long as we're bumpin' an old thread I may as well update it with some more of my "bad" work.....thanks
  4. There should be no issues with getting SMP then having a transplant. As Dr. Barghouthi mentioned a surgeon should be able to make clear distinctions especially since they use high magnifiers. Also, the SMP, if done properly, should be placed in the upper dermis (superficial injection) so it's not deep enough to effect the grafts.
  5. Presenting a Norwood 7 Client after 3 sessions. Thanks for looking!
  6. Seniormido, The client featured here would probably want to maintain this hair length ( zero guard on a clipper) so the new SMP hairline blends properly with the existing hair. I know this is a common concern among SMP clients but the reality is SMP is 2D so for it to look its best and most seamless you want the surrounding hair to look as much like stubble as possible.
  7. Gatsby, You have a pretty solid understanding of SMP at this point. In fact you're probably more knowledgeable than many practitioners. Glad to see you found a good artist and that you're happy with the results!
  8. Denver touched on a very good point here regarding hairline design. A good result means the practitioner should have solid technique, proper, SMP-specific tools and training, but also understand the basic principles of hairline design. If all three aren't in play then you are looking at a poor result. I was not a tattoo artist. My background was actually in publishing and at one point I was even offered the moderator position on this forum. I was just a hair loss sufferer who had a botched hair transplant. I then found this forum and educated myself and went on to have several transplants
  9. It looks to me like they probably injected far too deep into your dermis-beyond the upper dermis-which can result in dots bleeding into each other and an overall unnatural look. This is likely from lack of experience and possibly using equipment not intended for scalp micro pigmentation. SMP is a highly specialized practice and should use proper equipment and techniques. Neither of these appear to have been used on you. As far as removal, make sure you find a good laser technician (maybe a cosmetic dermatologist). This is worth traveling for if you don't have one in your immediate area.
  10. Thanks Denver, made the correction! And good looking out by you as well! And to answer your question, while this will certainly fade on its own over time/lessen in color saturation, it will likely not disappear completely on its own so laser removal is his only recourse.
  11. JustGotSMPD, Sorry to say this a botched procedure. Any qualified SMP artist will tell you this. Do not have any more work done by them. You should remove with a laser. (Make certain to thank Ciaus for adding me to this thread by the way, he saved you from getting into even deeper trouble.)
  12. Carbon, I use both single and three-point needles. Light-skin clients with fine hair usually get single point. Dark skin and coarse hair get three point. For hair transplants I will often use both. The three-point is sometimes needed to camouflage the grafts which tend to be thicker.
  13. Hi Kruchie, I don't think I've treated any true redheads. That being said I have worked on clients with red highlights to their hair as well as blonde and gray. I wouldn't get too caught up in the hair color as it appears when it's grown out, though. SMP is designed to look like shaved hair stubble and you might notice that hair--when shaved, no matter what color--has a grayish tone. This gray tone is from keratin. Hope this helps....
  14. Thank you! Here are some recent "model" shots we took:
