That’s why we structure our licensing agreement the way we do.

Running any business presents a number of challenges. In this industry your success or failure rests on these two key objectives:

  • You must perform procedures to a high standard
  • You must be able to find and attract new customers

With the optional Scalp Aesthetic affiliation program there is a monthly licensing fee of $500 (USD). This gives you access to our brand, your location on our website, viewable by more than 5000 visitors daily. You can refer to your company as a Scalp Aesthetics affiliate.

Yes, $500 (USD) per hour really is achievable as a scalp micropigmentation technician. The average Scalp Aesthetics affiliate treats 8 clients per month.
