Anouska Cassano, Founder of HAIR ink. is a highly experienced micro-pigmentation practitioner. She is a member of BABTAC and SPCP and is a recognised expert within the broader field of micro-pigmentation where she is the technical expert for CIBTAC advising on all forms of micro-pigmentation.
It is in the area of scalp-micro pigmentation that Anouska is specifically regarded as being an expert in her field, having worked with some of the leading hair transplantation clinics and surgeons in the UK, Europe and USA.
In June 2014, Anouska was invited to attend the International Society Of Hair Restoration Surgery European Workshop in Brussels to demonstrate her HPT® technique for scar camouflage to over 150 of the worlds leading hair restoration surgeons and was invited to be a key note speaker and lecture on HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation at the CIDESCO 63rd World Congress & Exhibition in South Africa in May 2015.
Her HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation training course is the only course of its kind to have been independently endorsed by VTCT, BABTAC and CIBTAC. Additionally, the course has gained global training accreditation through the Skin Health Alliance and Anouska has delivered HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation training to a number of leading hair restoration clinics in the USA, Europe and in the UK.
Our HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation pigments, used exclusively during our treatments, are the result of an ongoing collaboration between Anouska and leading international manufacturer of pigments to develop the ultimate range of pigments manufactured specifically for the scalp.
Anouska works with a number of the UK’s leading medical professionals in the fields of psychology, dermatology, hair restoration surgery, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical aesthetic practitioners. Working with such a broad cross section of patients highlighted the need for a standardised and consistent approach for the initial patient engagement, given the diversity of aesthetic and cosmetic treatments available and the importance of having a unique understanding of each individual patient’s goals as they relate to aesthetic or cosmetic change. This led to the inception of Advanced Consultation Training (A.C.T.) which she created in collaboration with Dr. Glenn M. Callaghan Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training at San Jose State University.
A.C.T is an integral part of our consultation process at HAIR ink. Using this holistic and collaborative approach to the consultation process not only promotes patient safety, but is an important part in delivering more successful outcomes for our patients.
In addition to her public speaking engagements which have included FACE (Facial Aesthetics Conference & Exhibition), IAAFA (International Academy of Aesthetic Facial Academics) and ASAP (Association of Scottish Aesthetic Practitioners) she has written a number of articles on hair loss and scalp micro-pigmentation for publications including PRIME International Journal Of Aesthetic & Anti-Ageing Medicine, Aesthetics Journal and Aesthetics Medicine Magazine.
