The Esthetics Academy caters to the true professional who is ready to uplevel their skill by investing in themselves for their future and their clients' results. This is an involved training from the consultation to hands-on techniques. To become a true expert in this craft, it takes putting in the time studying at home and during class. If you're looking for a quick in & out class or if you're not at a place where you can dedicate focused energy, we suggest our virtual, self-paced option instead. We want everyone in our training to be successful and just as important as patient selection is to this treatment, so is only selecting professionals who are ready to focus their energy on learning.
Dermaplaning, also known as epi-leveling, is a manual exfoliation alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Skin care professionals will be able to recognize this being the best choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, Hyperpigmentation, dead/ keratinized skin, redness / rosacea, or telangiectasia. This treatment is performed using a surgical blade to gently exfoliate dead skin cells in the Stratum Corneum and removes the vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz”, which can trap excess dirt and oil. Hair returns softly and will not become coarser due to this treatment. Dermaplaning increases product penetration for topicals used. Clients will love the immediate glow of brighter and a more-even skin tone following this no down-time treatment. Make-up will appear smoother than ever before. This treatment is addicting! You can expect an increase in client retention with Dermaplaning clients booking monthly treatments for maintenance.
In our opinion, nothing compares to feeling the proper amount of pressure in hands-on training and receiving the treatment for yourself so you can experience the amazing benefits first hand! As long as you have no absolute contraindications, you will be receiving this treatment for yourself by a fellow licensed professional with the guidance of your instructor.
In our advanced course, we will be learning all about Dermaplaning, oil-planing, gentle chemical peel enhancements, LED Light Therapy and other unique tools you can incorporate into your treatments to create beautiful, long lasting results.
We expect all students to come to class prepared and with any questions they may have from their pre-study materials provided upon purchase. This will allow more time to work hands-on with your instructor the day of class.

We do require all participants to review and study this platform as well as take our online Dermaplane Exam prior to attending their hands-on course to receive their official Certificate of Completion.

Here is what you can expect from your time spent in class:
- Proper Client Selection & Contraindications: The beginning of class will be spent reviewing students' Client Health History forms & possible Contraindications to be conscious of. You will practice reviewing real health history forms to practice finding possible contraindications and examine the variety of nuances and exceptions that exist within the practice of Dermaplane parameters. Your instructor will review any missed questions from the Dermaplane Exam for clarification and dive deeper into explanation on those topics if needed. We encourage students to come to class prepared with specific questions from their time pre-studying the provided materials so we can review them during the lecture portion of class.
- Social Media Marketing & Service Promotions: We will share marketing strategies and techniques that have proven to be successful in advertising the service offerings and all of the many concerns the treatments address. Photos and videos will be taken throughout class for students to access, download and use for future marketing on all social media platforms.
- Unique Dermaplane Treatment Additions & Enhancements: Following the lecture, students will start prepping their skin for treatment. During this time, your instructor will introduce the synergistic products and modalities you will be working with in class, most of which are also included in your take-home kits. We’ll discuss the benefits of incorporating oil-planing, enzymes and gentle peels in combination with Dermaplane and choose the product(s) best suited towards the students' skin concerns and long term goals before embarking on our hands-on treatment experience!
- Hands-on Practice: We will be working hands-on for up to 5 hours, offering students a full treatment experience with Herbal Skin Solutions products and various modalities. Students will be practicing on their partner's arm before working on the face. Once students are comfortable with their blade pressure and angles, they’ll have the opportunity to both give AND receive a full face Dermaplane treatment (as long as you’re willing and no Contraindications are present) under direct supervision of the instructor. All treatments offer the option of incorporating gentle enzymes, Celluma Pro LED light therapy, Gua Sha, MySkinBuddy cleansing tool and Saian Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber for added benefits!
- Q&A: Once all Dermaplane treatments have been completed, instructors will take any final questions from participants and pass out their Certificate of Completion.
