Advanced Aesthetics

Advanced Esthetics Course

This continuing education course will train you to perform Dermaplaning, Microneedling and Advanced Peels.


Microneedling is a procedure that inserts microscopic punctures on the surface of the skin. This treatment will restore a youthful, plump, and healthy look to your patient’s face and is the latest trend in skin rejuvenation to fight against aging effects. Residents of Florida understand all too well the damage the sun can cause the skin, creating an aging effect much sooner than we would prefer. Sun damage causes permanent dark spots and wrinkles on our faces. Microneedling can help alleviate some of this damage. Because this treatment is minimally invasive with immediate results, it is certainly in high demand. We at Gulf Coast Academy will train you in all the methods and techniques used for this procedure so you can put a smile on your patients’ faces.

Courses and programs in Microneedling prepare estheticians to:

  • Identify the clinical uses of Microneedling
  • Demonstrate treatment protocols and the proper use of Microneedling devices
  • Understand formulations and ingredients of topical products used with Microneedling
  • Identify contraindications
  • Understand liability issues
  • Explain pre- and post-treatment care
  • Demonstrate proper documentation


Dermaplaning is a great option for residents who want an effective treatment with no adverse effects or downtime for recovery. This procedure is simple and painless, making it a common and highly sought-after treatment. This is a skillset anybody in the cosmetology career should master, and Gulf Coast Academy will help you achieve that. Our training program will prepare you to help any and all patients with common skin issues such as acne scarring, dry skin, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermaplaning is a safe, painless procedure that exfoliates the surface of the skin while removing those small, fine hairs (called vellus) many refer to as peach fuzz. Estheticians and other trained professionals, such as dermatologists, use a ten-gauge scalpel and gentle, feathering strokes to accomplish this.

A Dermaplaning hands-on class covers such topics as:

  • Standardized procedures and protocols
  • Pre- and post-care instructions
  • Skin analysis
  • Hands-on techniques
  • Price structuring
  • Market trends and client retention

Advance Peels

Chemical peels can be light, moderate, or deep. As a licensed esthetician, your state license will likely limit you to light and moderate peels.

Advanced Training and Certification in Chemical Peels

This program includes both hands-on training and classroom work, explores different types of chemical peels and their differences and functions, along with contraindications to treatment and the management of adverse side effects.
