This is a question I get from time to time. Fact of the matter is that few of our patients are shown with highlights or color changing of any sort. There are a few, like myself, Futzyhead and a couple of others but we are far into the minority.
For this case specifically, and many more like him, the color difference can be due to a few issues. First, it’s not really a color difference as much as it is a “shade” difference. Both before and after of this patient shows that they hair is brown. In the before, it is a darker brown, while the after is more of a medium brown.
What I know for a fact is that the befores were taken at 6:15 a.m. because that is when Dr. Wong starts his day. The sun is not up at this time of the day. The afters were taken at about 3 p.m. where there is much more ambient light throughout the clinic. This is the number one reason why you will see slight shade differences between before and after. We’ve also gone through a couple of different cameras over the years and each camera will have a slightly different tonal interpretation.
That’s the thing about our pics. We don’t modify them in any way except to resize them. We do not color match from before/after. We do not use a flash which makes hairline density appear to be twice what it is in reality. We do not use makeup or filler. We want you to see all the details that can be seen without actually being in front of the patient yourself. That’s why we are still the only clinic to use a HD camera for our videos and we give you the option of viewing our HD video FULL SCREEN.
Anyway, hope this explains some things for you. Glad you like the result.
