What to expect during SMP process & post session w/ pics

Hi gentlemen

 

I wanted to share with you some photos of a client of mine who has just completed his 2nd session. But instead of sharing the usual final settled transformation, i wanted to show you a couple of detailed photos of what scalp micropigmentation SHOULD look like after 1 session, and what it looks like immediately after the 2nd session.

 

These photos show the typical redness (which goes away in 2-3 days), but also how a client is able to make changes during his session, and what the process looks like from an SMP provider:

 

The 1st picture shows my client after 1 completed session & immediately before we got started on the 2nd. You'll see he wished to nudge his hairline down a bit. You'll also notice that before his 2nd session there isnt as much density and the "dots" may appear more distinct. This is on purpose!. You'll see in the after 2nd session photo that the density is closed much more, creating a fuller look. You'll also notice redness and a small bit of inflammation around the follicle deposits. This is also normal and will die down quickly.

 

The 2nd picture is similar to the first, but shows it from a profile angle. The same is true as youll see he wished to nudge forward the hairline and profile line. You'll see the 2nd session added further density...and youll notice redness well into his own existing hair, which demonstrates the blending which is so important.

 

The final picture is a typical before and after showing what the treatment looks like immediately after his 2nd session. He chose a natural hairline with a bit of broken and softness.

 

These pictures im showing arent the prettiest, and thats the point. They show redness, tiny scabbing, and a bit more distinct "dots" then what will heal to the final look 3-5 days post session. Hopefully this helps those considering SMP to understand why it is so important to follow a 2-3 session process. Each sessions adds density, allows for modifications, and keeps you in control!

 

Best

Matt

Abhimanyu i would need to see a couple of photos to determine if its standard or if there is something wrong.

 

sometimes hairlines can look a little harsh and sharp for a few days, but tend to settle within a week and soften. But that depends on how your practitioner designed and pigmented the hairline. There is quite a bit of skill needed to create a natural looking hairline.

....hairlines can look a little harsh...... but tend to settle......

 

There is....skill needed to create a natural looking hairline.

 

 

Tend to settle?

 

Really?

 

How so?

 

When the railway line is drawn across the desert, how does it tend to settle? Sand blows over the line?

 

Sounds like BS only an HT clinic rep could conjure to an agitated patient/client.

with all due respect, Abhimanyu is not my client, so i have no skin in the game to try and develop a "bs story" to calm his agitation. I am simply offering my opinion on his current situation.

 

If you ask any SMP client that has had hairline work, they would tell you that the hairline they see immediately after treatment is harsher than what appears say a week later. The reason is, the redness and minor inflammation around the hairline highlights the line and can make it look a bit sharper than it really is. Once the redness and pigment settle into the skin and scab over, the hairline should appear softer, and less sharp- because the underlying skin has now healed. (that of course is if the practitioner did the right job). It could very well be that the provider he had in New Dehli did not do a good job - i do not know without photos.

 

in sum Scar5, its not as simple as a "railway built in the sand". When you are dealing with pigment and skin it is important to understand how skin heals after minor trauma. Hope that helps answer your question.
