Scalp Hair Follicle Simulation Tattooing™ (SHFST™) is the technique of simulating the appearance of a hair follicle on the scalp by tattooing pigment into the skin to give the appearance of a thicker coverage of hair or to camouflage scars. There are very few service providers internationally who are achieving superior results in this technique and none to our knowledge have come close to the level of research that we have engaged in to create a training package. Some service providers offering this service lack even a basic understanding of the causes of alopecia and the conditions that should not have scalp tattooing.

After just 2 treatments

Based in Melbourne Australia, Andrea has been providing and perfecting SHFST™ client services for several years, Andrea decided to create a comprehensive training course after being asked to correct several procedures performed by poorly trained technicians.

Warning: There are poorly trained and completely untrained providers offering this service with no medical tattooing background, don't be taken in by flashy websites or bold claims. If you are considering undergoing this treatment insist on seeing the technicians valid diploma in SHFST™ from CT-AIVEP this is evidence that the tattooist has undergone formal training that was designed and created in association with a Registered Health Practitioner.
This is the only course in SHFST™ available globally that has been created to these standards.

In recognition of her work in SHFST™ Andrea was invited as a Master Lecturer at Permanent International the global congress on Cosmetic Tattooing in Berlin 03/11/2012.

Only a limited number of students will be trained to our exceptional standards in each geographical location.

The theory is provided via our revolutionary CT-AIVEP™ online multimedia platform providing students the ability to learn and prepare at their own pace prior to any practical training sessions, this also means that the valuable time spent with a trainer is not wasted on theory but spent doing hands on training.

The SHFST™ training program is an extensive and detailed course and is designed for Medical and Para-Medical tattooists and health professionals with extensive experience who should have a good understanding of the science and equipment that is employed in our unique technical approach in providing this service.

Extensive research involving the review of over 200 scientific publications has been conducted in the development of our unique procedural approach and course creation. All CT-AIVEP™ client procedures are provided using aseptic technique and clinical methodology.

Module 16 is a one on one practical training session in the provision of our trademark approach to Scalp Micropigmentation with a certified Workplace Trainer with the Victorian Registrations and Qualifications Authority.
