expert programme

The Dermalogica Expert programme is designed with you, the professional skin therapist, in mind. This 3-tier programme rewards your hard work and knowledge by recognising your professional skills. As you complete more workshops with Dermalogica you will progress higher up the ladder – culminating in the achievement of the ultimate mark of professionalism, Dermalogica Expert status.
why become an expert

Strengthen your industry credentials and boost your confidence with professional product use and combinations to personalise each treatment achieving fantastic results and earn client trust in your professional expertise and recommendations for home care. It may even increase your earning potential. As an Expert you’ll receive amazing rewards and benefits to help elevate your passion for healthy skin and client results.

Although Dermalogica training is free of charge, we appreciate it’s not without cost to you, the business owner. So how does having an Expert help recuperate the investment? The Expert programme is a great way to motivate staff and ensure loyalty as the programme completion can be built in to your personal training programme or agreement. We also observe an average 4% increase year on year for accounts employing Experts! Your business will also be featured on our Find an Expert page via the Dermalogica store locator.

about the programme

We have worked hard to ensure the adjustment from in-person to digital training is as seamless as possible, and has minimal impact on your journey through the Expert Programme. See the new pathway here, or please read our brief summary below:



  1. Complete DNA Retail and Professional Online self-led module OR DNA: Discover. Navigate. Achieve via d-STREAMING. Or when possible in-person Dermalogica DNA Day 1 – 3.
  2. Once you’ve successfully completed one of the above options, achieve your Certified status by preparing and completing the ‘Get Certified’ Assessment case study – attached below.
  3. Book your assessment here.
  • Alternatively when we re-open, with a practical Dermalogica DNA Day 4. 
  • Please complete your Certified status before progressing on the pathway


  1. The three OD Treatment Essential online modules, or via d-STREAMING the three Treatment Essential: Ageing, Sensitive and Breakout Prone Skin workshops. 
  2. Dermalogica ProSkin 30 d-STREAMING workshop, will continue to count towards the Expert pathway and be theory only.
