SMP is the fastest growing semi-permanent cosmetic hair loss solution that replicates the look of a hair follicle. Restore receding hairlines, add density to thinning areas for the appearance of thicker, stronger hair, and conceal visibility of hair transplant scars and other scalp camouflaging. This treatment helps both men and women with many different conditions from thinning/balding to alopecia.
Scalp Tattoo, Hair Tattoo, Scalp Tricopigmentation and Hair Follicle Simulation, are different names to describe the same procedure of Scalp Micropigmentation, which is the process of adding thousands of simulated, pigmented hair follicles to the skin of the scalp in order to give bald people the look of a freshly shaved head of hair, or what we call a buzz cut. This same process can be used to give Men and Women with thinning hair or bald spots the appearance of a thicker, fuller head of hair, by covering the scalp and not being able to see through the thinning hair. As well, this technique can be utilized to camouflage scars on the scalp due to injury, surgery or hair transplants. SMC is able to camouflage scars within the clients own hair, or create simulated hair follicles within the scar to camouflage the scar in the clients own real hair follicles.
Although there are different names for the same procedure, not all procedures are the same. Because SMP is relatively new, there are many untrained, or poorly trained technicians in the industry using the wrong needles, wrong pigment and wrong equipment to conduct a proper SMP treatment.
Without proper SMP training, needless to say that you will not be able to conduct a proper SMP treatment. You will need to understand the basics of this art form, as well as have knowledge of skin anatomy, hair loss, hair loss treatments, depth, density, hair lines, hair line build outs, hair density, scar camouflage, etc. SMC offers an intensive online and/or in-office training program that allows the student to take their time in learning this technique. The student is not able to move on to the next section without first passing quizzes, exams, and submitting practice pictures during the module stages of the program. If more practice is necessary, our Master SMP Artist will assist you in each step of the way. Once you have fully completed the course, and passed all exams and modules, will you have the opportunity to receive your Certificate of Completion as an SMP Artist. We take this course very seriously, and if SMC is going to put their name on a Certificate, then clients will know that that person is FULLY qualified to complete an SMP Treatment.
This is an important part of the SMP treatment, as the power source needs to be powerful enough to drive the needle cleanly through the first layer of skin. If you are using a PMU machine, chances are you are getting a lot of blow outs because those machines do not have enough power, and are used for Permanent Makeup, not Scalp Micropigmentation.
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
