Posted by on December 27, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) training allows you to embark on a very promising career as an SMP artist. Even people who are already working in the beauty and grooming sector can choose to become an SMP artist to take advantage of the huge potential of the sector, which economists say will grow very fast over the next decade. Scalp pigmentation is a new technique for addressing the concerns of men who often start losing their hair from the age of 35 and become embarrassed with very thin hair or bald patches by the time they reach their 50s. By undergoing scalp micropigmentation, it can seem that the head has a full growth of hair and looks good thus helping persons to get back their self-confidence.

Understanding the Process of Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation is one kind of a cosmetic procedure that has the advantage of being non-invasive. It is specifically designed to address male baldness concerns, hair loss, receding hairlines, etc. that are very common in males over a certain age. The procedure gives the scalp an appearance of having real hair follicles and it can seem that the person has closely cropped hair. When done on the scalp of persons with thinning hair, the SMP treatment can make their hair look stronger and fuller. The SMP procedure is also sometimes advised for people who have had surgeries leading to scars on their scalps or have had incidents of severe scalp acne. Even in women who are suffering from hair loss due to any reason, the SMP procedure can be undertaken to give the appearance of new hair growth.

There is a fairly high degree of skill involved in the SMP process as the SMP artist needs to use specialized electrical tattoo equipment to implant ink into the scalp. They not only have to use several techniques to ensure that the result resembles natural hair follicles and that the color of the ink matches the color of the natural hair very closely. The process that can last from two to as many as five hours requires a very high degree of manual dexterity, concentration, and focus. The actual technique and the duration of the scalp micro-pigmentation training sessions depend on various factors like the color intensity, the area to be covered, and even the level of tolerance to pain by the patient.

Training To Become an SMP Artist 

Perhaps the best things about SMP training are that there are no stiff eligibility parameters and secondly, the courses are typically quite short despite being comprehensive. While you can enroll in an online course, a typical classroom SMP course may be an intense one covering just five days. Normally, students benefit the maximum due to the large number of practical demonstrations, including ones using live models to illustrate the technique of SMP. These courses impart the practical and theoretical aspects of scalp micropigmentation and also cover the skills needed for the students to become entrepreneurs, expand their network, and productively market their skills.


Given the enormous potential of his sector, learning to become an SMP artist could open up a lucrative opportunity. However, you need to make sure that you possess the necessary manual dexterity, the ability to pay attention to details and offer creative solutions to clients who may be under a lot of stress.
