What is scalp micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation, otherwise known as SMP, is the process of 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 with 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.
There are many benefits to SMP, such as:
- It does not scar the skin
- It can effectively hide Alopecia
- It creates natural-looking results
- It works for all ages, skin colours and degrees of hair-loss
- The treatment is largely undetected by friends and family
- It can beautifully camouflage existing scars
- It is a non-invasive treatment
A successful SMP treatment can last for several years. However, clients may choose to return at their own discretion; to update their style inline with current hair trends, perhaps, or simply to freshen up their look.

WHAT WILL THE COURSE COVER?
Understanding the scalp
In this module, you’ll learn about the natural cycles of hair growth and loss, plus develop a deep understanding of the different medical and genetic conditions that can result in hair loss.
In this module, you’ll learn about alternative treatments to SMP, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), infusions, hair transplant surgery, hair replacement systems and topical applications. Though many SMP clients have usually experienced unsuccessful alternative treatments, it’s important you’re able to discuss various options at length, so your client can make an informed decision about which treatment is best for them.
Understanding your client
In this module, you’ll learn the importance of understanding your clients’ condition and needs, plus how to find which treatment option is best for them. We’ll teach you how to assess your client’s scalp with the Norwood Scalp Classification, which will help you determine their treatment plan. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to listen and empathise with your client, which is the key to your success.
Treating pattern baldness and Alopecia
In this section, you’ll learn about the different types of Alopecia and pattern baldness, plus when and how best to treat these conditions.
The solution for surgical scars and conditions
Through a series of case studies and practical sessions, this section will broaden your knowledge of hair transplant surgery, surgical trauma, and skin grafts. Not all scars are created equal, so understanding the differences between various skin traumas and how best to treat them is a vital skill for any practitioner.
Choosing the right needle
SMP needles are highly specialised, so this section of the course will teach you all aspects of needle technique, plus how to choose the correct needle for your treatment.
This section covers the different colour options available, plus the advantages and disadvantages of permanent inks and pigments.
How to price your services
In this section, we’ll teach you how to cost your services through various cost examples and guidelines, enabling you to price your treatments competitively.
Gain hands-on, practical experience
We believe in the power of practical experience to cement your learning, so during the course you’ll get multiple opportunities to put your theory into practice.
Hairlines are as unique as the people who have them, with age, variations in skin type, and positioning of the hairline complicating things further. This section of the course will help ensure you can provide professional, effective results for your individual clients’ needs.
Your 4-day agenda
At LVC Aesthetics, we’ll first provide you with a home study manual to support your learning. This course handbook covers:
- Legislation and start-up requirements
- Consultations and contraindications
- The origins of micropigmentation
- Hygiene, health and safety – PPE
- Treatment room requirements
- Insurance and UK legislation
- Anatomy and physiology
- Specialised needles and equipment
- Understanding the client
- Colour theory
- Pain control
The first four days of your training course will be comprised of both theory sessions and practical demonstrations. Our LVC Aesthetics experts will review what you’ve learned during these first four days to ensure you have a deep understanding of the training material and procedures.
On day two, you’ll see live demos from our expert tutors, then get the opportunity to practice what you’ve learnt on synthetic skin. By the end of the day, you’ll be able to try your hand at performing SMP on one of our models.
On days three and four, you’ll get the opportunity to practice practical treatments on your model under expert supervision. You’ll also receive your certificate of attendance at the end of this day.
On-Completion you will be officially qualified and free to provide life-changing, expert procedures for your clients.
The financial benefits of SMP
SMP is a great skill to have as a practitioner because the material outlay of this service is low.
There are two ways you can charge for your services. These are:
- Per area
- Per customer
The Norwood Scale is a widely accepted guideline for pricing your services. This scale uses geographical area and level of technician’s expertise to calculate the suggested cost of service.
At LVC Aesthetics, we can’t wait to help you advance your career and deepen your knowledge of your chosen field.
