  1. Have never seen a halo effect. Have seen FUE where the extraction site is very white. This is very difficult to cover. Many times, this would be a two-step process. If this is the case; the bright white areas would first need to be pigmented in the client's natural skin tone, followed by the points applied about 2-4 weeks later. You can see in the example photos here that the donor area blends quite well if the donor area is not bright white. Much of it depends on the natural color of the client's scalp as well as the skill of the surgeon. As for a fade, again it depends on the seve
  2. A great example of The Weston System performed by our California Center owner, Michael Pichinte. Mr. Pichinte added density to this hair transplant recipient and camouflaged the thin areas on the crown and the FUE scars. The pigmentation is slightly behind the HT surgeon's uneven hairline on the left as opposed to the client's right side. The client was going to buzz down his hair slightly shorter to blend in the hairline that the HT surgeon mismatched in the front. Photo was taken immediately after this one-session only procedure.
  3. Yes, you got it, 16 years old on the USS Wabash (replenishment ship) . My parents had to sign for me to enlist. And the Sergeant was there for a short time and was departing ship on next US portage.
  4. The marines, specifically, do not permit for instance, sleeve tattoos. They recently updated their policies to permit some tattoos that were not visible. So don't confide in anyone that you have pigmentation on your head, as it is still a tattoo. I know this for a fact because I had a Marines Sergeant Major that I performed my System on last year and he was very concerned about the end look. But all turned out well and he kept his "tattoo" to himself. I was in the Navy in the late 1970's, the first thing I did when my ship docked in Hong Kong, I dodged off the ship to get my tattoo
  5. A good tech should be able to distinguish the difference. The pores on the scalp are larger than those on the forehead skin among other characteristics. I can very easily pick out immediately where the hairline used to be. A barber would know this, as well as a good esthetician. This is the problem why so many men have the same hairline with the multi-session scalp micropigmentation. The techs just don't know how to distinguish. Watch a few YouTube videos; they all draw out the same hairline.
  6. Some beautiful results of The Weston System for African-American men done by our artist at the Atlanta Weston Center. The post two-month photo is of a gentleman with Alopecia.
  7. If I understand you correctly, you are thinking of lowering your hairline with scalp miropigmentation? If that is correct, NEVER, NEVER lower your hairline with pigment below your natural one or the one the HT surgeon originally created for you. This is because pigment "cures" differently in forehead skin than scalp skin, particularly scalps with scarring in recipient areas. You will end up with an off-color stripe in the front of your head. It may not be noticable immediately, but in several years to come it will be blatant. I have attached an example of a scalp micropigmentation m
  8. I would be happy to try and get in touch with him, as it has been quite a few years. However, would you kindly contact me through the email address on my website. I would never put a client's personal contact information out for public view.
  9. According to domain registry records, they registered the domain name on January 7, 2014.
  10. Thanks Bill fror the additonal input. Some multi-session scalp pigmentation companies are over eager to get customers' money and tell them anything to do so. So I honestly believe Etownone was told that.
  11. Understood, but my pigments are safe as I know all the ingredients that go into them and what those ingredients are derived from. There is no chemical makeup. They are also all vegan and contain no animal by-products. And yes, the FDA is supposed to be a "reputable government agency." That is why I had submitted my pigments to the FDA years ago. If I was afraid of what they would find, I certainly would not have volunteered them for screening. I have been an advocate of FDA approved pigments for scalp micropigmentation for years. Can't do anymore than that. Most commercially availab
  12. I think the results are quite good considering the raised and shiny condition of that area of the scar. Everyone must understand that scalp micropigmentation is not cosmetic surgery.......we cannot completely correct what an HT surgeon has left you with; this is a camouflage. The surgeon appeared to have been more heavy-handed on the sides. The scar tissue on the man's head is also pink, which obviously shows more on a man of color. The only other alternative would have been to tattoo the pink area of the scar first to match his natural scalp color, then at a later time apply the actual sc
  13. I am a tattoo artist of almost 50 years. It is not difficult to apply pigment to a scar with conventional tattoo methods. But I tried that decades ago and the results were below reproach. That's why I engineered and patented a needle for scalp micropigmentation. As I know from experience, a standard 3-round tattoo needle (smallest commercially available) will look like Sharpie points and will eventually migrate together for a solid fill. Also, if you have dark hair, all commercial black tattoo inks are made with indigo blue. So you will end up with blue Sharpie-looking points. The
  14. I require my clients to wait at least 18 months minimum; whether a FUT, FUE, strip scar or any HT surgery for that matter. There's alot going on under the scalp and just because it looks healed on the outside, there still is healing going on underneath. Your body will see the needle and pigment as a new "injury." Too soon will prompt excess collagen production which will form over the pigment in the scar tissue making it looked faded and with a blue tone. You can have it done as soon as you like, but the pigment will be absorbed and appear faded by the new collagen growth. You wil
