dermaplaning course

This comprehensive diploma course will show candidates how to safely and skilfully use a surgical blade to exfoliate the skin, minimize imperfections, remove fine vellus hairs and increase product penetration, giving your clients silky smooth dewy looking skin. The controlled removal of stratum corneum skin cells using a surgical blade can dramatically improve skincare results and is a great addition to any treatment menu.

There is currently a huge demand for dermaplaning and it’s fast becoming a more cost effective and alternative option to facials such as Microdermabrasion.
