Our Scalp Micropigmentation runs over three days, however some clients request an extra day and others who are already familiar with tattooing or cosmetic tattooing prefer to do this course over two days with extended times.  Most commonly however is three days.

The course structure is one day of theory which can also be pre-read prior to the course and in addition practical practice on mannequin heads for hairline design and correct density techniques and essential needle depth practice on tattoo skins – necessary prior to working on models.

Day two consist of you being guided through the entire scalp micropigmentation process – every step of the way where you will start off assisting your trainer and gradually taking on more of the procedure as you show confidence and competency. 

Day three is where the training really comes to life. You will be able to set up your workstation and preform a professional consultation with your model/client.. depending on the desired out come you will be designing hairlines and building density or covering scaring or all three.. Over the three days you will work on 3-4 models  what’s more you will be building the beginning of your portfolio..

Scalp Micropigmentation Course in BRISBANE is (SMP) is a very effective option those wanting to learn a variety of scalp micropigmentation techniques. Our SMP training in BRISBANE covers many important scalp micropigmentation topics for instances of Alopecia, male and female, thinning hairlines, pattern baldness and scarring on the scalp. Scalp Micropigmentation process is also a very good improvement for clients which have had a hair transplant and for those who require more density, or have scarring from the procedure. The pigments used have been developed for Scalp Micropigmentation are absorbed by the immune system through phagocytosis in a span of two years maximum meaning the results can begin to fade after 6 months. In order to keep the result looking fresh and natural we recommend the clients return once a year for a maintenance application.

Institute of Ink SMP techniques and products vary from many of the main competitors and it causes less risk to the client because with the passing of time each dot of implanted pigment will simply fade away and the client will have no residue left on the scalp. We just have to wait to let the immune system do its job.

 Scar Coverage

Most scars can be treated effectively but we always need to make sure the scar tissue is stable and we need to work on it very carefully. Most scars on the scalp are due to previous Hair Transplants (FUE or FUT) but occasionally also other trauma can be the cause of these scars. The healing process for every individual is different and even in ideal skin conditions scars can unexpectedly change while still healing. We need to understand the different types of scars we might encounter in order to be able to asses if we can work on them or not.

 Hair Loss Solution

Scalp Micropigmentation in Brisbane is rapidly growing in popularity as a treatment for hair loss. It is a perfect solution for hair simulation on its own or in combination with a Hair Transplant where it can increase the appearance of density. The technique we use requires that the special pigment is placed as micro dots (smaller than 1mm in size) and distributed correctly. The technique and products we have developed will offer you the best tool possible to create natural looking follicles.

Density Effect

The Density Effect is only possible if there is enough hair left on the scalp. A density effect can only be used if the amount of hair in the area to be treated is sufficient enough and the right length according to the rest of the hair in order to remain a natural look. When the difference is too big between the area to be treated and the area with hair the result will look unnatural. In this case we would advise the client to choose the Shaved Effect.

Shaved Effect

If there is not enough hair to work with the Density Effect the only option for the client is to choose the Shaved Effect. Many men already adopt a shaved look to minimise the appearance that they are balding.
