Dermaplaning has been widely used within salons and spas, where esthetic procedures are performed. It is the safe use of a sharp surgical blade to remove vellus hair from the top epidermal layer of the skin, increasing cellular turnover while smoothing and softening the surface of the skin.

Course Curriculum


We want our students to receive the finest education in dermaplaning. Our training program is featured in two parts to facilitate learning in a progressive and enjoyable fashion that leads our students to successful completion of the course.

Part 1 is an Online Course and contains your Dermaplaning Manual.

Part 2 is the Experience portion and is hands-on in class. All of the tools and supplies needed for 15 dermaplaning facials are included in the ProStart Kit which students receive in class.
