Hi, I am a first time user here, and would love to get some feedback on my concerns of a recent treatment I have had done. I recently had 2 sessions of smp to conceal my scar, I am concerned that the ink chosen is too dark for my natural hair colour, and that the amount of area covered is over the top and unnecessary, it also appears to be blotchy in some areas. i went in to have a 5mm scar covered up almost 2 weeks ago, here on the Gold Coast, I told the technician I planned to wear my hair at a number 1, faded up into my hair on top, which I wear a few inches long usually. instead of cutting my hair to that length, it was slightly trimmed around the scar and he went to work, a week later, the day before my second session, I decided to cut it down to the length I wanted it to be kept at, I was suprised to see what I thought was ink build up on the surface of the skin, it looked blotchy, and pooled In areas, I later found it was SMP down outside of the scar region, it was very dense and not consistent around the area. i went into my appointment the next day (4 days ago) and the technician did not say anything negative of the situation, but suggested we blend more SMP around that area, he then did a more even/ constant band as you can see in my below pics. my concern is that the ink used is too dark to wear my hair at a 1 or even a 2. I am also concerned that it is a very unnecessary amount of coverage to blend the original 5mm scar that I went in there for. i also feel that that sudden stop of SMP will always be noticeable unless I grow my hair to a much longer length, perhaps number 3. Especially below the band of smp, as this would usually be worn at the shortest length and blended up. Having to wear it at a 3 kind of defeats the purpose as the scar was never visible with a number 3 in the first place. i will post the pics in order, and would love any advise and information on if I am over reacting or if my fears are justified. the first pic with the untouched scar was not taken directly before, my hair was much longer in my first session, about a 3. The second pic is 1 week after first session when I shaved down for session 2, the third is a day after session 2, and the 4th is 4 days after session 2. Could you please advise of what I should do from here? Thank you so much
Scalp Micropigmentation can be the answer for those with a linear scar, who desire more density or those who want to shave their heads and appear that they have a full head of hair. For more photos, check out my website: www.ink-credible.com. I'm located North of Philadelphia, PA.
