The Theory Behind Scalp Micro-pigmentation

Not only is it imperative to gain a full, comprehensive understanding of how to carry out a scalp micro-pigmentation treatment on a client, but you must also have extensive knowledge of the theory behind the procedure. Your trainer will thoroughly go through the anatomy and physiology of the skin including the three different layers of the skin, along with how this is relevant to scalp-micro pigmentation. The colour theory and the history behind pigmentation creation will also be explained with diagrams.

Preparing Your Premises For Scalp Micro-pigmentation

During your training, you will cover all elements required to present scalp micro-pigmentation to clients in a professional manner. Similarly to all treatments, strict health and safety standards is crucial for maintaining a business compliant with all regulations. You will understand the required PPE, personal protective equipment; you will need to supply along with the health, safety and hygiene procedures you must implement. The steps of sterilisation and disposable of equipment will also be covered.

Handling Client Consultations and Procedures

There are many different steps towards providing a professional and safe treatment to a client. During the initial consultation, you must carry out a patch test to assess any allergies and potential contraindications, as well as consulting the client’s requirements to make a plan on how to tailor their treatment. Your trainer will help you to understand how to alter styles and colour match for a perfect, natural outcome.

Each client has a different pain threshold and will react differently to the sensation of scalp micro-pigmentation. An important section of your training will be managing pain control and what preventative measures to put in place such as anaesthetic cream to keep the discomfort of your client at a minimum. Lastly, you will be taught sufficient aftercare instructions to give all clients, how to explain the healing process and infection control in the worst case scenario of an issue.
