meant to say session 1
4 days ago. looks like i typed 14 daysMarch 2, 2014 at 10:32 pm #3738
The main thing is to just keep moisturising the head, shaving is a personal preference, you don’t have to shave but can if you want, i applied e45 2-3 times a day in between the sessions to keep it from getting dry, don’t worry you will see the difference the 2nd session makes soon.
All the best LuckyMarch 2, 2014 at 10:36 pm #3739
Yes markyb just make sure you keep applying the moisturiser and you should be ok, don’t know about the remington, i have a braun that does a pretty good job, i also wet shave sometimes.March 3, 2014 at 8:20 am #3744
Yes agree with Dave & Lucky. Keep moisturising and this will help the skin for your 2nd treatment. This is where the head is filled in far more and for me was the turning point in the treatment.March 3, 2014 at 8:23 am #3746
just waiting for damon to ring me today
he needs to check on condition of scalp
so far it seems ok. just a bit of dry skin so hopefully all be okMarch 5, 2014 at 8:00 am #3779
Well here we go for round. 2
Just arrived in Manchester it’s 730
Time for breakfast and a brew then off to see Damon at 9am for second session
It’s going to be a long day
Start work at 1630 and then driving a bus for 7hrs!March 5, 2014 at 10:51 am #3780
We’ll not what I was hoping for today
About 5 mins in to treatment my scalp started to break up
Psoriasis started to flare up
Damon put some moisturiser on and tried a few more dots but it was no different
He then smeared Vaseline all over my scalp and we had a brew and a chat for 10 mins
We discussed the possibility of having to abandon today’s treatment
He said the dots can shift and get 2 close to the others when skin is not 100%. Thus can result in a messy look and fade
He tried about another 10 dots then decided to call it a day.
He was really gutted but we both knew my treatment could cause a few problems due to my psoriosis
Damon is an expert and perfectionist at his work
I dread to think what May gave happened had a gone elsewhere to get it done or been treated by a less qualified person
So back in next Wednesday
Need to try and get scalp in good condition by then
So all though I feel gutted at moment , I’m thankful Skalp know what they are doing and are not just rinsing people through.
A set back yes, but like the Guinness adds say
Good things come to those that waitMarch 5, 2014 at 12:35 pm #3781
That’s a bit of a bummer Markyb. I can imagine you are not feeling great.
What will happen if your skin continues to break out??
Yes it’s good to hear that they want perfection for you and care how it’s going to look.
All the best and I hope your skin improves.March 5, 2014 at 12:53 pm #3783
It will get finished eventually .
Just may take longer
Damon confident , but won’t do it until scalp is ok
1st session went ok, but scalp must be telling me enough is enough
Only had 3 days to get scalp in good condition before today.
But once I get this second one done I get a month before 3rd so plenty more time to keep scalp healthyMarch 6, 2014 at 1:07 am #3816
A shame you have had to delay your treatment. I suppose they are the experts and I can understand if your skin isn’t great it won’t be as good. As you say better to be patient. Hope your skin improves.March 12, 2014 at 1:18 pm #3921
Well here we go again
Off to Manchester to see if I can get session 2 completed, booked in for 1400
If scalp is not ok today ,I’m booked in for next Wednesday
Fingers crossed toddy will be ok
Train just arriving in Manchester nowMarch 12, 2014 at 6:27 pm #3922
Hope it goes well Markyb.March 12, 2014 at 6:41 pm #3923
Well session 2 complete
Been a tough day
Work at 5am till. 1230 then off to Manchester for 2pm
Started off well , but after a couple back of head started to get red and flakey , similar to last week
Managed to get about 80% done today ,
Skin was that tough at back and sides Damon had to change needle part way through ,
Going back in for an assessment in about 2 weeks to see how it’s holding and check on skin condition ,
Booked in for session 3 on. 5 th April
But depending on how the 2 weeks assessment goes 3 rd session maybe changed delayed
Damon as usual was professional till the end
He knows his job and I just leave it to him
Oh and it looks great
This 2 nd session is as people say the good one
Very dense now if a little red
Been a bit painful today but that was down to my poor skin conditionMarch 12, 2014 at 7:58 pm #3924
Sounds like it was a tough day for you but worth it. I have had 2 treatments so far and it was a big change from the first treatment and I love it.March 13, 2014 at 7:57 am #3934
Great to hear yesterday went better for you. Hopefully you are now on your way to a great look.
