Scalp Micropigmentation And Tricopigmentation Training Now Available In Canada At The Scalp Micropigmentation Center Of Toronto

(PRLEAP.COM July 12, 2016 – SMP or Scalp Micropigmentation has grown and evolved throughout the years, and Tino Barbone has been a part of this growth, he states “We’ve seen our business grow leaps and bounds from when I first started in SMP years ago, and there is no sign of this business slowing down. In fact, we’ve only hit the tip of the iceberg, and once more Men and Women learn about this procedure, and how simple and effective it is, we are going to really see how big this iceberg is.”

The Scalp Micropigmentation Center is now offering SMP Training in Scalp Micropigmentation, SMP Hair Density and SMP Scar Camouflage. “We receive hundreds of emails and calls a month asking for SMP Training, and finally I had a chance to sit down and write out the manual that all our students can understand and follow. We’ve created our own line of needles and pigments, and we work with one of the best and most well known Tattoo Machine makers in the world. We provide all our students with the hands on training they need to get started, and a kit that will allow them to start their own SMP Business or Franchise with The Scalp Micropigmentation Center. We probably have the highest standards in the SMP industry, and all our present and future clients can expect the same professionalism and high standards from all our franchisees.”

Aren’t there other SMP Training Centers that are “recognized worldwide”?
Absolutely not. There are no international certifications, or companies recognized by any authority in Canada, the USA or Worldwide. SMP is not regulated by anybody, or by any legislation and currently falls under permanent makeup. Be very careful with marketing schemes and companies that promise you that you will know everything about SMP in 3 days and be ready to practice this art as soon as you finish up the class. It took Tino Barbone years of practice and trial and error, and if you ask him, he is still learning the art as of today. This is an ever changing industry, and you need to practice this art as much as possible and be aware of the latest technology, tools and techniques. That is why we have our own Scalp Micropigmentation Professionals group on Facebook for all of our fellow SMP specialists and students around the world. Here you can post your pics and ask questions to the group and get real answers from SMP professionals across the globe.

Where is the Scalp Micropigmentation Center located?
Our main training site is located at 1 Eglinton Ave East, Unit C401, Toronto, Ontario, M4P 3A1. As we continue to grow and as our franchisees progress to Master SMP Artists, we will be opening up more training centers or traveling abroad in the coming years. If you would like to be a part of this massive growth, visit us at and reserve your seat today.

Why is the cost so high for your SMP Training?
Cost is always a concern, and we are aware of this concern from some students. However, The Scalp Micropigmentation Training Center offers a small class size of maximum 3 students, where other SMP Training Centers usually fill up their classes with 8 or 12 or more students in order to maximize their dollars. Can you imagine being in a class of 12 and working on one or two scalps? You would only get a small square to work on. At the SMC, you will have hands on training, and work on a good portion of the scalp, if not a whole scalp. As well, if you’ve ever been in a large group there is a lot of wasted time on talking, silly questions, arguments, people not getting along, etc. With a small group of max. 3 people, we get straight to work and Tino Barbone ensures that we follow the schedule accordingly. You get what you pay for! Pay less for a subpar SMP training course, and receive subpar training. Pay more for a small group, and receive the best SMP training in the world!

Successful SMP Artists can make up to $20,000 a month or more, depending on how much you want to work and how much you are able to charge in your area. Let me break it down for you. If you charge $3500 for a full frontal and crown area SMP treatment, and you see a moderate number of clients per month – lets say 5 for this example, then $3500 x 5 clients = $17,500. Subtract your expenses (Rent, Hydro, Water, Franchise Fees, Kits, etc), lets round it to $7500 per month, you are left with $10,000 in your pocket per month. Can I ask you how much you are making now? Could you see yourself doing this part time or on the weekends? The return on investment (your SMP Training Course and Kits) is paid back in 2 clients, the rest is profit.

How many franchisees can be in the same area?
We have a very clear map of where our SMP franchisees live and work. In major urban areas we look at the population within that area and then determine how many SMC SMP Artists can work in the same area. For example, Toronto has a population of 2.8 Million people. Thus we can probably manage 5 locations, spread out across Toronto in different areas. However, the population of Kitchener, Ontario is 220,000 people, thus it can only hold 1 or 2 SMC SMP Franchisees. We are very careful not to step on anyone’s toes, and we will work with all our franchisees so that we can all be successful.

How come you do not include SMP Scar Camouflage Training in the beginners class?
No SMP student should be working on scars during or right after their receive their certificate. Scars are not normal tissue, and if you use the wrong technique, you can really cause more damage than good. We’ve seen the results of bad scar camouflage jobs done by other clinics, or inexperienced SMP artists, and that is why we hold a separate course just for SMP scar camouflage. You will work with actual Hair Transplant Scars and use our hair stroke and microdot technique to camouflage the scar, and make it virtually undetectable.
