CERTIFICATION: Dermaplaning Training (In-Person, Woburn MA)

Course Description

This course has been approved by the Massachusetts State Board of Cosmetology.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for effectively exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). This popular treatment has been widely used within physician offices, medical spas and esthetics spas.

Dermaplaning is a quick, profitable treatment with few to no adverse effects; it has quickly gained popularity. This is a great treatment to offer to clients who are pregnant or nursing, or who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream. It is also a first choice for clients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the client healthier looking skin.

The treatment allows skin care products to penetrate more readily into the deep layers of the skin. It is often a great treatment to achieve better results in conjunction with other modalities such as IPL or chemical peels.

Dermaplaning is most often used to treat clients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation​, mild acne scarring, uneven texture or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. Perfect combination therapy treatment with microneedling, chemical peels & more!

This course covers theory & lecture, marketing tips, pricing and menu ideas as well as extensive practical hands-on experience. Within this training, you will acquire the necessary skills and technique to properly perform a safe and thorough procedure. Understanding proper sanitation, safety issues, and in addition, skin profiling will be included.

Day 1 on site will include 9 hours of extensive and thorough lecture session and practical experience by pairing up with another professional in class. Extensive hands on practical experience on each other and optional models. Topics and demos will be reviewed for combination therapy using other modalities such as Growth Factors, Chemical Peels, Devices and more!

The remaining 7 hours will be completed independently. Proof of training is submitted via email with before & after photos within 20 days of the workshop. Certificates are awarded after successful completion of all 16 hours of training both on-site and independently.
