Get Started


Dermaplaning is an exfoliative treatment performed using a scalpel to exfoliate away the outermost layers of the skin.  This process is painless and very safe but is only recommended for treatment of the face.  Not only will it achieve smoother, brighter skin but it also helps remove downy hair (peach fuzz). Despite popular belief, the hair does not grow back thicker following treatment.

Course structure

This qualification comprises both theory and practical elements. The theory part of the qualification is completed as home-study making this an ideal route for those who wish to study flexibly around other commitments. This includes knowledge testing quizzes.

At the time of enrolment on your qualification, you will have access to your study materials (including: manual, power point presentations, worksheets and our Student Handbook). Once you have completed all theory coursework and it has been submitted and marked by an assessor, you will arrange to attend 1 practical training day to achieve your qualification. You will have your skills assessed in a real working environment within our academy and will complete a minimum of 3 case studies at this time.

When you have successfully completed your training course you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beacon Academy. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability Insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home and/or mobile.
