    Am I a good candidate for SMP?

    I see tons of cases like yours at my clinic. I think a buzz all around at 1 guard could possibly work but I would recommend starting out shaving it down with a zero guard for the procedure and then playing around with the length and seeing what looks best.

    Ahead Ink Amazing Transformation NW6

    Thanks Farsan! There is no issue working between existing hairs-- I do it all the time. The needle I use is only set to go .5mm or the upper dermis so there's no risk of damaging the follicles. If you'd life a specific quote please send me pictures to info@aheadink.com Good growing to you!

    Ahead Ink Amazing Transformation NW6

    Hey Sean, Thanks for the nice words! To answer your question, we do 2 sessions on consecutive days and the third between 3-6 weeks later.

    Ahead Ink Amazing Transformation NW6

    Hi Markee, The cost for this Shaved Look client was $2,500 USD. That includes three sessions and an aftercare kit. We're seeing most clients go on average 1.5 to 2 years before coming in for a touchup. Some can certainly go longer. I would say it takes about 3-4 years before the pigment fades to being completely gone. Touchups average about $500.

    Australian SMP clinics

    Hi transhair, I now own a web site called SMP Clinics. It is a hub for all Beauty Medical clinics and technicians and clients. We will soon be updating the list of all Beauty Medical-trained clinics worldwide. You can also contact Beauty Med and see if they've trained anyone new in Australia in the meantime.

    Ahead Ink Amazing Transformation NW6

    Thanks so much True! It is amazing what a huge transformation these clients go through simply by shaving their heads and having some SMP done. It's subtle but very impactful.
  7. It could also be a lipoma (benign fatty tissue/tumor). I would go to your MD and have it checked asap.

    Wet shave SMP

    I would dissuade you from using a blade on the SMP. The pigment is deposited in the upper dermis which is a superficial injection so constantly dragging a razor across it can increase exfoliation and accelerate fading. If you want that super-close, skin-tight shave, look into a foil razor (not the 3 headed type). Andis makes a good one Andis 17150 Profoil Lithium you can get for about $50 on Amazon.

    Shameless Bathroom Selfies

    Looking good Bill! That's about how I've been wearing my hair actually. I also had my first HT around 2005. Man time does fly!

    Nick Cave?

    It's definitely a hair fiber product like Toppik. I've seen guys pull off some amazing feats with that stuff. Like, create a full head of hair on a slick baldie. The dusty/matte appearance gives it away. Jon Tapper on the show Bar Rescue does something similar, as did Jon Cryer (who looks 100% better now that he shaved it all off).
  13. My guess is that he already had a strip procedure and wasn't pleased with the growth so he opted for FUE/BHT. I also believe that since it was FUE--and especially BHT--he will continue to grow some, and the hair can take up to 18 months to finish maturing. Since being in the SMP business I've seen lots of clients come in who used this approach. I think it works well for guys who are doing a shaved or buzz look. And the SMP allows them to have an even fuller, denser look.

    SMP and US Military

    If your SMP was done properly you should be fine as it's designed to look like a shaved head/stubble. We treat plenty of military men (already in the service) as well as police officers and they have no issue.
