Scalp Micro Pigmentation Training
With the emergence and popularity of the Scalp Micro Pigmentation industry, there has been an increased demand for training and education. While this is great news for the industry as a whole it has given rise to some predatory practices by some scalp micro pigmentation companies and artists. When choosing a company or artist to train with there are a few things to look for and a few things to avoid.
First and foremost make sure that the person training you is licensed and can successfully perform the procedure themselves. They should be able to show you their body of work and provide all necessary documentation as required by your state or city. If a potential trainer cannot provide these basics it is probably not a situation you want to get yourself into.
Make sure that the training is complete. Some trainers will lure you in with an attractive price but will only give you a minimal amount of training in the very basics. They will then request more money from you for additional training. A good trainer will teach you everything from health department regulations to quoting clients to actually performing a micro pigmentation procedure. Be wary of trainers or companies that charge you separate prices for different portions of your training. In doing this they are able to keep you just uncomfortable enough in your ability in order to persuade you to continue to pay for training.
You also want to find a trainer or company that trains in a way that would most benefit you. Some micro pigmentation training is done primarily online. Whereas, other training is done hands-on style. Everyone learns differently so it is important to pair up with a trainer that best suits your learning style.
At Alpha Micropigmentation in Las Vegas, NV, Our training is done 100 percent in person and is always hands on. We train you on everything you need to know to successfully start your own scalp micro pigmentation business. Training classes are never larger than 4 people so that each person receives the individual attention that is needed. We also have one on one training available during certain times of the year. You will be trained by an experienced artist who is licensed and has a comprehensive body of work. There are no hidden fees or surprise charges for additional training. Your “final exam” will be to perform a micro pigmentation procedure on an actual client.
Alpha Micropigmentation is a premier scalp micropigmentation (SMP) clinic in Las Vegas. We have been in the beauty and aesthetics industry for over 25 years. In that time we have watched the number of scalp micropigmentation companies grow quite rapidly but have resisted entering the market because our opinion was that the technology and equipment were not where it needed to be to provide results that we would be satisfied with.
