  1. 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....
  2. Thank you! Here are some recent "model" shots we took:
  3. This client decided to ditch his hair system in favor of a Shaved Look. We addressed his hairline to crown with 3 sessions.
  4. Sam, Thank you. FUE and Strip scars both present unique challenges. Any scarring is difficult though and can be unpredictable as it's not normal, healthy, vascular tissue. Ciaus, The client did not want to treat the frontal zone. I agree though that they best way to fix would be remove and redistribute the grafts or fill in-between with SMP or single hair follicular units to make it irregular and to soften it.
  5. This client had a FUE surgery done overseas and was understandably unhappy with the results. Unfortunately they used a large punch for donor extractions and packed them too close together which prevented him from wearing the short hairstyle he prefers. We treated the scars in two sessions (he may require a third).
  6. Hope everyone is doing well and getting through these tough times. Here's one of our first clients since reopening. Thanks for looking!
  7. 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
  8. 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 bein
  9. Yes I’ve got a bunch. I’ll create another thread for them.
  10. This client requested a high, receded-looking hairline design. We also added in a scar. Thanks for looking!
  11. 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.
  12. These are off my phone. He also had just done a FUE surgery but none were placed into the scar:
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Here are some recent samples of dark-skinned clients. Thanks for looking!
  16. Here are some samples of how SMP can help conceal the horseshoe pattern that becomes obvious with crown hair loss. Thanks for looking!
  17. Thank you! Yes I'll post some examples of scar repairs next.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. If your goal is to go for a shaved head look then I definitely do not recommend going for a HT. And I can show you countless pictures of clients with obvious dot scars to illustrate why. Yes, the SMP can help disguise the scars, but why create an unnecessary problem that you then have to fix? Also I do often see transplanted clients with a "ridging of the scalp" in the hairline that is noticeable even with the SMP in front of it. I'm not trying to poo-poo HTs either (I've had several of them myself and it looks great). But I believe they are best suited for people who want longer hair styles.
  22. It's actually tougher to pull SMP off when there is more native hair in my opinion. You have to be very meticulous about matching the SMP with existing hair and know how to deliver proper density so it all blends seamlessly. Regarding your last statement, the one caveat is that transplants always have a downside and that's the creation of scar tissue. Recipient scar tissue can sometimes be problematic when performing SMP, especially when the work is not modern and highly refined (i.e. performed by a top surgeon). And then there's the donor zone. I cannot tell you how many clients I see who wer
  23. Pretty basic as you can see. I also can provide clients with the lab tests/analysis Beauty Medical sends me with each and every batch of product I get.
  24. When SMP is done properly, no one should be asking what you had done to your head. Many of our clients actually report that their close family members (yes, even their own mothers) either have no idea they had the procedure done, or ask why they don't grow their hair out. Well, guess what mom.... It's not hair.....it's Ahead Ink!
