Dermaplanning certification

Benefits of dermaplaning

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Some practitioners perform a chemical peel post-dermaplaning (I wouldn’t recommend this if you’ve never had either treatment before or have sensitive skin). Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Microdermabrasion, which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.

Who should consider dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated). Those with very oily or active acne should avoid this procedure as well as anyone with thick, dark facial hair.

Online Courses

How do Online Courses work?

Online training is the perfect solution for busy professionals who need more flexibility in scheduling and/or prefer individual coaching.

Learn at your own pace and when you’re ready for hands-on we’ll use FaceTime (Mac), Skype or Zoom (PC) for one-on-one video conferencing.

It’s like having a trainer come to you without the additional travel time and expense.

Hands-on training can be scheduled weekends or evenings to accommodate your busy schedule.

You’ll need a model for one hour and at the conclusion of the training and with a little practice you’ll be ready to get started.

Individual attention and coaching gives you the practice, experience and confidence you need to successfully introduce your clients to this popular treatment.
