Alopecia clients are so happy after having brows and liner done permanently. I did something a little daring…I actually drew lashes on permanently along with her upper eyeliner.  I was a bit nervous but my client was so excited by her idea.  She was the one who asked me to do it.  Thanks for believing in me!

I had so much fun with this client!   She was a referral from NAWBO…National Association of Women Business Owners.  She came to me feeling washed out and tired.  As a blond with fair skin, she is the perfect candidate for Permanent Cosmetics….and she loves it!  As a matter of fact, she referred her daughters for permanent brows.  (they’re blond and fair skin, too). Now she has soft-colored permanent brows, eyeliner and full lip color… and looks 8 years younger without any surgery!  I love what I do!

I do lots of corrective work.  This client had gone to 3 different techs around the country.  This is challenging because I didn’t know what pigments were used prior.  You can’t really see the grey/purple undertone in the first photo, unfortunately.  Yes, they did need some TLC.  As a matter of fact, I found a ‘taupe’ color at one of my SPCP conventions that’s beautiful!  I mixed it with another color to take the grey away and it healed very pretty.  Corrective brows are necessary if you want to keep a fresh, crisp, natural-looking brow.  (or any cosmetic tattooing for that matter).

Yes, they say it’s permanent but is it really?  Permanent makeup lasts 1-5 years or longer.  I’ve experienced blondes with fair skin come in once a year for maintenance – because of this, I charge a minimum fee to keep the cosmetic tattoos looking good.  Due to ingredients in skin care products, taking medication, sun exposure, your cells, stressed out, sweating, changing jobs and working under fluorescent lights and MORE….all of these can destroy the color.  You want to keep your permanent makeup fresh looking and soft so no none knows you got it done.  It should brighten your face and create youthfulness…along with adding color so you don’t feel washed out.

This is the same client who came to me for a full-facial procedure of permanent makeup:  brows, eyeliner and lips.  I simply wanted to show you how I implanted a soft pigment color for a blond.  I did single hair-like strokes known as ‘feathering’ on her.   It’s pretty and looks natural.  She looks FABULOUS!

This is a tummy tuck scar. It was extremely raised and discolored.  I did ONE “needling” procedure and the patient old me it was miraculous!  The scar tissue flattened AND the color mellowed out.  It went from purple/blue to a softer color.  This is the real deal…belly button replacement and all.  Unfortunately, the photos don’t do it justice.  You can see the blood lines on the day of the “needling” procedure (immediately after).  I put this in my blog for you to see what to expect.  I want you to know exactly what it will look like from beginning to end.  Most people only want to see the end result but I want you to see everything so you know what to expect.

Sometimes this isn’t easy to correct OTHER technicians work when it comes to color correction.  When I don’t know what type of pigment used prior to doing the color correction procedure, there are many obstacles to think about.  You can’t tell in the first photo that her brows where grey and light orange, can you?  After “warming” up the new color, you can see the outcome was good.  It feels so fabulous when  a client is happy with the results.  Thank you!

Losing your breasts to cancer is difficult for women but at the same time, these women are given their lives back.  This is a double mastectomy (bi-lateral) patient. Medical Micropigmentation (medical tattooing) is incredibly rewarding.  When you look at the first photo, you can clearly see the scars from the surgery.  Now look at the second picture…after doing the nipple/areola repigmentation, your eyes hardly see the scars anymore.  Please note that the after photo was taken immediately after the procedure so they are going to look dark and too circular but after a week or two, they will fade up to 40% and look very natural.
