skin therapy course


Beauty school? That’s not us exactly.
Esthetician? We prefer skin therapist.

While the definition of esthetics is the study and appreciation of beauty, we believe healthy skin is beautiful skin. At Dermalogica Academy you’ll train for a new standard in the industry to become a highly-skilled skin care professional providing expert advice and targeted treatments that deliver results for the healthiest skin ever. That is what your future clients will appreciate.

The Dermalogica Academy course is focused on skin therapy, starting with the basics to the latest treatment innovations and technologies. Our goal today is what it was 30 years ago: train the most passionate skin therapists in the world with the latest technology. Our advanced curriculum is unlike any other. Researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute, you’ll explore the current science of skin therapy while developing your hands-on skills right from the start progressing to advanced therapies, paramedical procedures, waxing and makeup artistry.

Your learning experience is enhanced with a Smartboard, iPads, and the latest skin care equipment to ensure you’re industry ready! You’ll learn how to market and manage a profitable practice as every element of the skill set you’ll need to succeed is part of the program.

Dermalogica Academy fully prepares you for the esthetics licensing exam and our commitment to you will not end at graduation. Continue your education at The International Dermal Institute with post graduate master classes at one of our 40 training center locations around the world. We’ll connect you with our global network of 25,000 salons, spas and medical practices seeking to hire highly-trained Skin Therapists and assist you with getting the job you desire anywhere in the world.

While we take your education seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Dermalogica has been redefining skin and body therapy for over 30 years, training over 100,000 skin therapists around the world and having a lot of fun along the way.
