So, you want to learn Dermaplaning?

For only $490 (+GST) per workshop, including starter kit, you have the ability to earn a minimum of $1200 in revenue. We hold workshops in Auckland, Palmerston North and Christchurch.

Dermaplaning, sometimes called epidermal levelling, is a safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) of the face.

Our dermaplaning training course is a one-day masterclass covering a mix of theory and practical application. You will see, feel and perform a dermaplaning treatment on the day.

Dermaplaning is a great addon treatment to work in with your existing facial menu to offer clients instant, visible results without downtime. A controlled method of exfoliation, removing both vellus hair and dead skin, this is a non-invasive treatment suitable for the majority of skin types.

Our starter kit (included) will enable you to perform 30+ treatments so you can hit the ground running post-training. With the potential to charge $50-100 per treatment, you have the potential to earn a minimum of $1250 in revenue once certified.

Dermaplaning Training Dates 2021

What Our Trainees Have To Say We’ve been training beauty therapists for years! Here’s what they have to say…

Just a wee word about dermaplaning training… it was absolutely fbaulous and I’m pleasantly surprised how busy I have been! Thanks Sylvie for the thorough training session.

I am so happy with all of my training through cosmetologists. Dermaplaning was a scary prospect for me initially but everything was explained thoroughly, the pros and cons of dermaplaning, the structure and function of the skin, contraindications and the hands on training. The most beneficial part of it though, is being able to ask questions and ask for advice after the training is finished, I appreciate having that ongoing support which is so important. The equipment and product are very high quality, the trainers are knowledgable and friendly with years of experience in the industry. I just cant recommend them highly enough!

Great feedback so far from clients, the training you guys have by the sounds of things has been far superior to others I’ve talked too, so thank you!!

Frequently Asked Questions Have a question we haven’t yet answered? Ask it bellow!

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active breakouts and men with heavy facial hair. If your client has active acne there are other treatments available that would be more beneficial, and it is necessary to wait until breakouts are healed before trying this treatment. This is, however, a great treatment for pregnant/nursing clients who want exfoliation without the use of chemicals.

We can offer one-on-one training at your location. However, it can often work out more affordable for trainees to travel to our Auckland or Christchurch locations for the day to attend training. The course content and timing is identical to our group classes. There are additional charges for private training (on top of standard course costs). These include travel to your location. Costs are:
  • Auckland: +$200 +GST
  • North Island: +$400 +GST
  • South Island: +$600 +GST
Our trainer has limited availability, so please email us to enquire.
Our dermaplaning kit has been designed to give you everything you need to start out. We include a selection of blade sizes to perform 30+ treatments as well as supplies to perform the treatment with. We are mindful many new clinics may not have all necessary skincare products which is why we include mini sizes of basics such as cleansers, serum, mask and moisturiser as well as dermaplaning supplies. If you have your own skincare range, these products can be removed from the kit at your request, but there is no reduction in the course cost.   If you need extra supplies we can certainly add them to your kit - dermaplaning is a great low-cost treatment, so extra supplies are extremely affordable!
