Why become a scalp micropigmentation clinician?

To love what you do, help others and earn what your worth. No more struggling with a job you don’t enjoy that barely pays the bills.

SMP treatments start at $1250.00 – $4500.00. Start up and training costs are low and margins are high with a quick return on investment in this high demand industry. Trained technicians are desperately needed as the industry has taken off in the past several years.

The critical importance of training

Your reputation as a skilled SMP technician rests almost exclusively on your results. Demonstrate world class procedures, and you won’t need to advertise – your customers will find you. The development of an enviable and profitable reputation starts with the right training.

What makes a great clinician?

The VPC training is for students with passion and compassion. This fascinating and lucrative profession requires empathy and excellent communication skills to help your clients with issues that are often very emotionally charged. In many cases, the results can be perceived as life changing to the individual client. Our philosophy is “Good is the Enemy of Great” we strive to ensure every new technician leaves with all of the skill and knowledge to be Great and make a difference in the industry.

What does the VPC training program involve?

Using both classroom theory based lectures and practical hands on experience with live models our students develop the confidence they need to provide exceptional treatments for their students.

Our entrepreneurial perspective encourages students to embrace innovation and challenge the status quo. In addition to critical thinking and a base knowledge in the science behind scalp micro pigmentation we help them gain the practical experience, skills and social aptitude to not only be job ready but also a leading technician in the field of SMP.

Paramedical micro-pigmentation is NOT the same as permanent makeup. Very different techniques and needles and supplies are necessary to ensure a 100% natural outcome to our treatments. However, the skill set that you acquire during your training will allow you to understand the principals and practice permanent makeup if you choose to do so. We do not teach permanent makeup but the level of skill we will teach lends itself to easily transition.

  • Small class sizes to optimize learning. Only 12 students are accepted per session.
