First of all, don’t panic. It is very very easy to become accustomed to the initial darkness after a treatment and the lovely 3D effect of those ink scabs looking like hair.
This is why I think it’s important to wait between your second and third treatments to allow it to continue to fade so that Paul or Simon can assess it properly when choosing the pigment shade for your next session.
It is part of the process and sometimes a roller coaster ride with your emotions, one minute you’ll look in a certain light and the next in another light you’ll have a different opinion.
Provided we all have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with SMP then the end product will make you a happy man.
This is just a general comment and not to you directly HK, initially after treatment we tend to over analyse and stress over every imperfection. I must have taken 10,000 photographs of my bloody head ha ha but give it time and I promise that you will just get on with life and the only time you’ll think about your SMP is when you are in front of a mirror either shaving your head or brushing your teeth.
