Dermalogica Expert Program

Dermalogica has announced the Expert Program, a three-tiered education pathway and rewards program for accounts which carry the Dermalogica product line and skin therapists who use the Dermalogica brand in their professional treatments.

The Expert Program is structured into three tiers: Dermalogica Certified (Tier 1), Dermalogica Specialist (Tier 2), and Dermalogica Expert (Tier 3). Participants must complete a series of demanding classes in order to move from one tier to the next. In addition to perfecting proficiency with an array of specific ingredients, treatments and Dermalogica products, the series also enriches the skill-set of the participant with business knowledge, including tips on merchandising, retailing and event-planning.

According to Jane Wurwand, owner and founder of the Dermalogica brand, the success of an individual’s Dermalogica skin care regimen requires regular face-to-face dialogue, consultation and treatments with a licensed skin therapist, adding, “Simply buying your product online won’t give you the optimum results. As with all aspects of health, skin health requires professional expertise and interaction, and that cannot be simply sold over the counter or sent to you in a tube or bottle.”

Participants may start the program, beginning with the Dermalogica Certified module, with training either in-person or online. Completion of each module is marked by receiving a lapel pin and certificate to enhance the program participant’s growing professional accomplishments.
