What is the Dermalogica Expert Program?

The Dermalogica Expert Program globally recognizes top tier professional skin therapists who have invested in their education to become the ultimate skin health guide to their clients.


Being a Dermalogica Expert is our way of recognizing Professional Skin Therapists as a trusted source of credible advice and treatment. Clients seeing a Dermalogica Expert can be assured that they will receive the very best advice, not only in the treatment room, but homecare recommendations, product and ingredient usage tips that fit in with their unique lifestyle and preferences.


The Expert Program is facilitated in over 80 countries worldwide at Dermalogica training centres and comprises of a series of hands-on and theory workshops, which lead up to a hands-on practical assessment.


With over 4,700 students participating in Dermalogica workshops at our training centres across Canada, we are proud to call out 318 Dermalogica Experts across the nation.
