There are two distinct techniques in scalp micropigmentation:
- Permanent scalp micropigmentation
- Shorter duration tricopigmentation
Permanent procedures are topped up every 2-4 years, whilst tricopigmentation is re-applied every 9-15 months. The differences are explained comprehensively in this article. There are also hybrid solutions available. Most training providers specialize in permanent SMP, so click on the courses above to find out more. See Pigmentalia for tricopigmentation training, or choose Cosmetic Aesthetics for hybrid training.
We are often asked for advice about which procedure a prospective trainee should learn. The demand for permanent SMP greatly outstrips that for tricopigmentation, but there is also a lot more competition. Tricopigmentation has more credibility within medical circles and is safer, but permanent procedures allow more artistic creativity.
