Scalp micropigmentation, otherwise known as SMP, is applying pigment to the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of hair follicles. Similar to tattooing, the ink used during scalp micropigmentation permanently marks the scalp, giving the look of a full head of hair that has been shaved or adding density to hair that may be thinning.

For many people suffering from hair loss, Alopecia or scarring, this cosmetic treatment offers a life-changing, viable and long-term solution.

As a practitioner, scalp micropigmentation requires in-depth training, specialised equipment and extensive knowledge and skill. The process consists of multiple sessions in which carefully selected pigment is implanted into the scalp using specialised needles.

One of the great things about doing micropigmentation training is that it does not require you to have any medicine or surgery background. You can undertake micropigmentation courses and become proficient in the technique in a short time. This means you can start practising extremely quickly after deciding to join the industry.
