Dermaplaning is a form of deep exfoliation using a sharp surgical blade to manually and safely scrape off any build-up of keratinised skin cells (stratum corneum) on the face.
The treatment removes vellus hair which can cause build-up of debris and oils in the follicle which can cause breakouts and a dull complexion.
Removing epidermal tissue allows active skincare ingredients much greater penetration into the epidermis increasing their effectiveness.
Treatment softens the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and mild scarring. Immediate results – smooth, soft and radiant skin.
Painless treatment with no downtime. Suitable for all skin types and conditions – including sensitivities and redness.
Dermaplaning can be used prior to some additional clinical treatments to increase the effectiveness and produce deeper results.

If you feel one day is not enough training, you are able to come back to repeat the course again free of charge within 6 months when spaces are available with the same tutor.
However, due to small classes and the 1-1 attention you receive this is rare but for your peace of mind available if required.
The tutor can advise you on prices for kits and the best place to buy them on the day of your training.

The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish. If you do not wish to be worked on due to medical reasons, sometimes the tutor can provide one if advised beforehand.

Why is our course so popular?
This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.
Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.
This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!
