  1. I think he's actually headed for a NW6/7. Look at how deep the pattern sinks in the back, and it looks like the sides are dropping, too. Acura, Have you tried just shaving your head first? You're going to require a few surgeries to get decent density and coverage and in doing so will create a good bit of scarring. And even with a few surgeries you're still going to have areas like the crown that won't get coverage. Another issue to be wary of: without being on FIN/Minox you'll get the HT, it will look great for a while and then you'll lose more native hair and appear thinner. Just make sure you do plenty of homework and consider all the pros and cons of doing surgery before you proceed because the scars are with you forever.
  2. Firstly, I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy during this crazy time..... Sean, Thanks for the nice words. Yes I agree Fousey's first treatment looked good then he got botched. I'll be sure to start a grey hair thread of examples this week for you. Thisisnotatest, Thanks for the comment. I usually recommend clients go with either a zero guard on a clipper (the Wahl peanut or And is T Outliner for example), or use a Foil Shaver (The Babyliss FX is incredible), because when the surrounding native hair has some length it does give away the illusion of SMP. That being said, some clients do let it grow in a few days and while not as seamless, still looks quite good and I doubt the average Joe would notice. I can also also create a thread of clients going for more of the buzzcut look. And trust me, I know SMP isn't perfect. Neither are hair transplants for that matter (I fix TONS of unnatural ones with horrific scarring). The best solution for hairloss is to not lose your hair! I also believe that once hair cloning becomes viable it will change the game.
  3. Yes I’ve got a bunch. I’ll create another thread for them.
  4. This client requested a high, receded-looking hairline design. We also added in a scar. Thanks for looking!
  5. TBcruz, no the FUE grafts were still fresh so we didn’t address them. I have been treating many FUE scar cases as well though.
  6. These are off my phone. He also had just done a FUE surgery but none were placed into the scar:
  7. I have a client whose strip scar we did shaved down and it looked great after 1st session. When he returned for a second session he wanted to keep his hair longer. IMO the scar was bit more obvious but still much less discernible than pre-SMP and he was thrilled with the result. I'll post pictures of it this week.
  8. tripleg, The fade process for both SMP and Tricopigmentation varies greatly from person to person. I have seen clients who went to "permanent" SMP places and they have barely a trace of pigment left (some after just one year). On the flip side I have Trico clients who have their result last for 2 plus years. The difference is that the Trico system is made to specifically break down and disappear from your scalp over time. This is due to the composition of the pigments as well as the consistent depth (.5mm) we inject at.
  9. Here are some recent samples of dark-skinned clients. Thanks for looking!
  10. Here are some samples of how SMP can help conceal the horseshoe pattern that becomes obvious with crown hair loss. Thanks for looking!
  11. Thank you! Yes I'll post some examples of scar repairs next.
  12. We often see clients who were let down by a hair transplant due to lack of grafts. Thanks to SMP we are able to give them a more aggressive and aesthetic hairline as well as the appearance of full density. Thanks for looking!
  13. The grafts were all placed in his hairline. As you can tell from those strip scars though this client unfortunately did not go to a top surgeon like those carefully vetted by this web site.
  14. This client had very rough double strip scars. Not easy to treat due to the scars being stretched and red, but thankfully we were able to get a great outcome for him.
