Dermaplaning is a quick, non-invasive service that provides instant visible results to your clients. With growing popularity, dermaplaning works great in any spa or medispa environment. Clients are seeking fast, non-invasive, and effective treatments to solve their skincare concerns and needs. Since dermaplaning does not involve any medical-based products or treatments, it can be done in a typical spa setting.

During your training, you will get an inside look at the overall dermaplaning service, the tools and techniques involved, and any necessary product recommendations associated with the treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a great treatment that can be done in any spa or medispa without the need for extreme procedures or products. The microdermabrasion facial is not only trending in the beauty industry, but it is quick and effective, leaving clients happy and wanting more. Great for many skin types and various skincare concerns, microdermabrasion is the perfect option for those not only looking to relax, but also seeking results.

By adding microdermabrasion and dermaplaning to your spa or medispa service menu, you will be able to help a wide variety of new and existing clients in search of methods relating to their skin health. Combining strong exfoliation techniques with the comfort of a normal facial will provide your clients with a relaxing and effective spa experience.
