What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is a safe and medically approved procedure to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Under the care of a Licensed Professional, the procedure is completely safe.  Anytime you implant color into the skin it is considered a tattoo and all the same state and town regulations need to be followed.

Prepackaged sterilized permanent makeup needles are used along with hypoallergenic and dermatologist approved permanent makeup pigment.  A computerized permanent makeup machine--The Nouveau Contour Intelligent is used.  The machine method of implantation results in a quicker treatment, less discomfort, faster healing time and longest-lasting result.  Very fine needles deposit color by superficially punching into the upper dermal layer over one hundred times a second. Most procedures result in scant to no bleeding. Very effective topical analgesics are used throughout the procedure.  Most clients rate their discomfort a 2 on a pain scale.  A 2 hour block of time is reserved for your procedure.  The majority of this time is spent numbing the area, selecting color(s), mapping out the design and discussing after care. The actual implanting of pigment takes only about 45 minutes.

All permanent makeup procedures initially are darker and bolder and that's why the powder fill machine technique lasts the longest.  As the skin heals, color softens and lightens to a powdery result in about 

5-7 days.

Over 1000 permanent makeup procedures have been performed in my confidential and private office.  My nursing  background is the reason permanent makeup clients feel safer and  more comfortable with me.  My art background is the reason clients have been so pleased with their results.   

Because of my training and background, I have become one of the most sought after technicians throughout Connecticut and Western Mass.  I was trained at The Permark Training School in New York City.  This school will only accept licensed medical professionals for training in permanent makeup at their school.  I was one of the first to be licensed in the state of Connecticut-#TAT.000008

Please contact me for a no obligation consultation to learn about this 5,000 year old art form.

What areas can be implanted with Permanent Makeup?


Color is implanted to fill in sparse brows or completely recreate the brow.   No pigment is implanted until your approval of shape and color.  The brows heal 30% lighter and the result is a soft powdery effect.   Loss of brow hair is very common and brows are the most requested procedure.

Surgical Scar Camouflage

Mature hypopigmented surgical scars can be implanted with flesh-toned pigments to camouflage the scar.  The most common procedures are from elective surgeries such as plastic surgery and hair transplants.

Eye Liner 

The eyes can be enhanced with permanent makeup. After healing, the effect is a soft pencil liner result.  The liner heals about 50% lighter.   You can select to have both lids implanted with pigment or just the upper or lower.

Para-Medical Permanent Makeup 

 Post-mastectomy patients can opt for  areola implantation to recreate a natural-looking reconstruction.
