If you are considering a career in skincare, there are several options to choose from when it comes to training opportunities. There are also several programs that partner with institutions specializing in certain skincare brands. One of the best? Dermalogica.
Founded by a skin therapist, Dermalogica offers custom skincare solutions for clients, as well as skincare education services for skin therapists and post-graduate students hoping to take the next step in their careers.
Dermalogica is a professional skincare brand that industry professionals can use to help clients take their skincare to the next level. From professional facial products to skincare education programs, Dermalogica has tools, resources, and services to meet your needs.
Here are three of the most valuable and popular:
1. Face Mapping
Face mapping is a technique that recognizes the uniqueness of someone's skin and identifies their needs for optimal treatment and appearance. All someone has to do to access Dermalogica's assessment is take a selfie and submit it online. The diagnostic tool will help them determine which ingredients are helpful (and harmful) for their skin.
2. Personalized Consultations
Dermalogica offers personalized consultations with a skincare expert. Dermalogica's professional skincare therapists provide personalized skin analysis and recommendations every day of the week. During the week, therapists are available Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Saturdays and Sundays, they're accessible from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (excluding public holidays).
3. Dermalogica Learning
One of the key pillars of the Dermalogica brand is the wide variety of learning opportunities for skincare professionals. Therapists can regularly attend webinars and in-person sessions on various skincare topics, from advanced services, such as pro-nano-needling, to clean touch certifications. There are also workshops that boost soft skills, too, such as the Meaningful Connections course. This opportunity helps professionals discover the tools needed to strengthen emotional intelligence and help them better relate with and retain their clients.
Interested in the Dermalogica Institute?
The International Dermal Institute (IDI), affiliated with Dermalogica in Florida, seeks to provide the best resources in skincare therapy education. Dermalogica's founder, Jane Wurwand, recognized that skincare education was not prevalent in the United States, so she founded IDI in 1983 and Dermalogica in 1986. After almost 40 years, IDI is considered the "gold standard for postgraduate skin and body therapy training," with 100,000 skin therapists entering the program each year and 37 locations in over 80 countries.
IDI helps skincare professionals reach their personal best in both treatment knowledge and client communication. You'll notice that Dermalogica's training programs focus on both the hard and soft skills necessary to become a skincare specialist. IDI emphasizes the importance of each skill set in order to provide a comprehensive education for individuals in the industry. Do you already work as a licensed skincare therapist? Licensed professionals can also enjoy advanced training courses to gain a competitive edge over other industry professionals and stand out in a pool of candidates, too.
Over the last three decades, Dermalogica has distinguished itself in the skincare industry as both the go-to brand for skincare and skincare education. With products designed with each client's unique needs in mind, it's no wonder that industry professionals partner with Dermalogica to meet their clients' needs.
With thousands of industry professionals seeking Dermalogica resources and education, it's no wonder that Dermalogica is a trusted name in skincare internationally. At Hollywood Institute of Beauty Careers, we are proud to be a Dermalogica partnership school. Our students and staff are trained by Dermalogica business consultants and IDI educators, giving them an incredible, strong, and empowered foundation as they begin their careers.
