Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a unique cosmetic tattooing technique used to cover balding areas of the scalp, add the illusion of density to thinning hair, camouflage scars and hide patches of alopecia.
While SMP has been practiced for over 20 years, the industry, equipment, pigments and techniques have recently advanced to a new professional level. This high-quality hair loss solution has become increasingly popular, and the demand for the procedure is showing no sign of slowing down.
Training is only available at our Fremantle clinic.
The SMP industry is becoming an exciting new market with many possible uses. It requires the technician to be highly skilled, patient, dedicated, enthusiastic and have an artistic flair to achieve realistic results for their clients.
If you would like to add scalp micropigmentation to the list of services you currently offer your clients, you need to consider how you will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge of a competent scalp micropigmentation artist. Foli Sim Micropigmentation is dedicated to graduating highly trained SMP artists into the industry.
Foli Sim is a specialised scalp micropigmentation practice that evolved from our diverse trichology clinic Medical Hair Restoration Australia. MHRA identifies and treats various causes of male and female hair loss with Kate Dawes of the International Association of Trichologists (IAT).
Kate is a highly qualified and respected trichologist with over 30 years in the hair industry, and is the founding Director and senior practitioner of both MHRA and Foli Sim.
Kate has been a registered trichologist with the IAT since 2010 and has worked closely with Dr Jennifer Martinick and Dr Sara Kotai in the field of hair restoration.
“I was introduced to scalp micropigmentation by Dr Martinick and Dr Kotai, who wanted to utilise SMP to camouflage the scarring from hair transplants,” says Kate. “I found this new technique so exciting for treating hair loss. It lets me use my knowledge of hair while allowing me to be really creative.”
In 2011, following formal training and certification from Goldeneye (UK), where Kate received her Diploma of Scalp Micropigmentation, Kate introduced SMP to her patients affected by hair loss, and quickly found SMP had a very real application for treating both male and female clients.
Kate has spent several years developing and learning new skills and techniques with numerous other industry leading professionals. In January 2017, she went to New York City to complete her ‘Master in Scalp Micropigmentation’ with Scalp Micro USA’s Matt Iulo, who is renowned in the industry as one of the first and finest SMP specialists in the USA.
During this five-day intensive course, you will learn a plethora of skills, tips and tricks to kick start your career in SMP.
The Foli Sim scalp micropigmentation course includes the following topics, and there will be assessment testing after each component based on what was covered.
We offer two training packages. If you already have the equipment the cost is $5,000. If you would like to purchase the machine, hand-piece, and a box of needles through us, the cost is $6,300. The duration of the training is 5 days full time.
Currently training is only available at our Perth clinic.
