I always thought non-permanent SMP would be an excellent practice. At this point in time, I think the most pressing issue is determining what the ink will look like while it's fading. Any thoughts, Spex?

Hi Blake,

Indeed the timeline that this effect fades and what it looks like as it fades will of course be of interest to everyone. I think this will generally vary from patient to patient however. It will be interesting to see the effect on my scar and also monitor the time it takes to fade. Until i do it impossible to say.

I am really looking forward to experimenting with it however

Best

Spex,

First of all, good luck with your procedure. Second, i have many questions to ask you as i am very interested in SMP.

1- i remember you referring smp as "blue dots on your head" and " lacks of depth" . İ know you are not doing the prcedure tp your whole head but why the sudden change for SMP?

2- Among all the well heard companies like HİS, GLİ, NHİ, why do you choose this dr from milan ?

3- Can you recommend this procedure to a full blown Nw 6 ?

4- what do you think about fue + smp combination to higher nw levels ?

5- if some nw 6 does this to his whole head , how often will he require a touch up?

6- what is the cost of the procedure ?

Thanks in advance.

1. Previous work and techniques i have seen in person have been fake looking and essentially blue inappropriate dots. BM technique is different and much more natural looking and not permanent.
It is very different to other SMP therefore the change of opinion. I wasn't aware of BM until only recently.

2. Because her technique is different, more refined, natural looking compared to other SMP have have seen. I have seem her work in person on a few patients, very good and natural looking considering its SMP.

3. I am not in a position to recommend anything. The results i saw in person on a NW6 looked very good. Are the results the same for everyone.. This is unknown at this time however with time and more people sharing their results and opinion
it will enable people to make a more informed decision. Its certainly an option worth looking into. I'm having my old Bosley scar which has stretched over the years and thin boarder areas addressed. I will know more next week.

4. Not see any finish products in person. All depends on patients goal i suppose.

5. BM technique requires touch ups approx 2 years. This is what i have been informed.

6. Costs mentioned above. Ranges from patient to patient. I will confirm the pricing for people though next week and get some specifics.


Best
Spex

Thanks spex.

İt is really great that you are doing this . İ mean i really dont know much about this doctor ,but since you are really impressed and jotronic really said good things about her , since i go to milan 1-2 a year for work and since the price is reasonable ( 2000 euros for nw 6?) , this may be a great opinion for me .

On the other hand , i am not really impressed with the website . İf you or some representative from the clinic can povide us some good quality photos it would be great and i am sure you will also provide us good documentary.

Again, good luck with your procedure.

I'm somewhat surprised how fast the news about Melina has spread since I first mentioned her on Spencer's show back in March. Good luck, Spex on your procedure this Thursday. I know a lot of people will be watching to see how it turns out but after what I've seen first hand I'm sure you'll be fine.

FYI to those that are following this thread, Melina just released a new video of her explaining her technique at the recent hair conference in Rome. She's speaking Italian obviously but her presentation is in English so I thought that some of you might like to see her describe her procedure in person as it were.

Some of the slides move by too fast so you'll have to rewind and pause to have enough time to read them properly.

The news about this clinic is bound to spread quickly with some very well known and respected industry experts such as Jotronic, Dr Shapiro and Spex all showing high levels of interest with Spex now having a procedure performed on himself exposing the clinics talents.

Potentially if it works, they could be catapulted into success very swiftly and of course it will help if he gives his seal of approval because of his great reputation in the industry.

Not only will it be good for scarring but I think guys who want to keep their hair very short can possibly use this in conjunction with fue.

Look what Michael Jordan done for Nike haha
