MUA Skin Diploma

MUA Skin Diploma



Beautiful smooth skin has now become the emphasis of a flawless make up base and without that, make up just doesn’t sit right. Everyone wants to look their best on a special occasion, be it for a wedding or a party.

The MUA Skin Care Diploma benefits;

Offer skin care treatments in one place for a beautifully flawless base

Give you an edge over your competitors

Add value to your existing make up packages

Create portfolio images that need minimal editing as you have a naturally flawless finish

Not all of your clients want to wax, thread or laser before a special occasion so this is a perfect way to offer an alternative.

There are 2 Packages

MUA Smooth Base Where you will learn dermaplaning. Dermaplaning uses a medical-grade surgical blade in short strokes at a 45 degree angle to remove the surface layer of dead skin, debris and hair

Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.

MUA Skin Care Where you will learn dermaplaning as well as steam facials for blackhead removal.

Why Train In Dermaplaning?

  • Add value to your current MUA Packages by offering skin treatments in one place.
  • Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types
  • A single dermaplaning session is able to remove around 2-3 weeks of built up dead skin cells and debris from your skin.
  • Dermaplaning is completely pain free and non-invasive.
  • The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used is able to get right against the top layer of skin.
  • There is no need to worry about the hair growing back darker- dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that grows back the same size and colour. In addition, the way the surgical blade cuts the hair does not create the illusion of a thicker hair.
  • You can charge £30-£60 per session (depending on your location)

Why Train In Steam Facials?

  • Blackhead removal is always in demand so you can offer this treatment as a stand alone treatment or as an add on to another treatment such as dermaplaning.
  • Allows for a pamper to your clients.
  • Add value to your current MUA Packages by offering skin treatments in one place.
  • Learn about skin and skin conditions. Knowledge is power.
  • Learn to use a blackhead extraction tool correctly.
  • Everyone is suitable for this treatment.
