Dermaplaning course

ABT accredited

Dermaplaning is a non-evasive beauty treatment, which removes the fine vellus hair on the face while exfoliating the epidermis using a scalpel. The ensuing results leave the skin fresh, clean and smooth, increasing absorption or products and the application of make-up.

This dermaplaning course is ABT accredited and is the equivalent of a level 4 qualification. It is designed for professional therapists aged 18 and over, wishing to study to an advanced level both theoretically and practically. The training will give the knowledge to perform this enhanced skin treatment using the correct techniques. The training will require at least 70-80 hours of self-study.
