Now HERE's a FUNNY one...
REGARDING BOTOX & DERMAL FILLERS: PLEASE ...DON'T GO GET INJECTIONS AFTER GETTING
PERMANENT EYEBROWS, AND THEN BLAME ME FOR THEM BEING CROOKED. (Can I get an LOL here?
Because it REALLY HAPPENS...) The natural (or enhanced) shape of your brows should be taken into
consideration PRIOR to injecting. The injector should be ARTISTIC enough, to be able to balance the
muscular structure with your natural (or new) brow placement.
WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS PLANNED...
This happens in your life as well as mine. So if things ever get stalled, I will be patient with you and I hope you
will be patient with me, as well as with the person in my chair who may be having trouble making decisions - or - in
some cases, their skin may be less cooperative than what I would like it to be... . Also, we live in a huge hectic city
and we all have lot's of things pulling on us. From traffic, to family and those last minute things that jump up and
Whatever the reason might be, it is best to schedule your appointment on a day where you are more flexible with
time. And if you end up having to wait, please be patient, because I promise to be just as patient and attentive,
when it's your turn to sit in my chair.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
|By the way... :) I WANT TO SAY A BIG "T H A N K Y O U" !
TO ALL CLIENTS, past and future...
...who allow me to post their photographs on line.... And also to those who
allow me to show their photos in the privacy of my office. Because without
you guys, I would have nothing to display at all!
& Medical Aesthetician
PAIN CONTROL: I will do my best to keep you very comfortable with a numbing process that takes about 15-30 minutes, prior to the
procedure. While your skin is numbing, I will use that time to set up for your session, and then we will go through an extensive
design process. Once you say you LOVE the design, I will gently start the process.
WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND "THE PROCESS" and you're ready to schedule a
consultation or an appointment, please text the following info to 713-443-8999:
- Your Full Name
- Email address - if you want to be notified of upcoming specials
- Date of Birth
- Cell Phone Number & best time to call.
- Offer 2-3 options (dates & times) that you are available.
- Say: "I AM A CANDIDATE".............This means that you understand the following info.
- ARE NOT PREGNANT
- ARE NOT NURSING A BABY
- ARE NOT DIABETIC
- ARE NOT UNDERGOING CHEMO
- ARE NOT SUFFERING OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS that would prohibit a procedure. You will
need to check with your doctor if you don't know for sure.
- YOU HAVE READ the MOST IMPORTANT PAGES and you UNDERSTAND that PERMANENT
MAKEUP IS A PROCESS that may only take one session to complete or it may take many -
depending on many variables that are covered on this website.
- YOU ARE PREPARED TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE the FREE ALLERGY TEST. Testing helps
determine potential reactions. Most people are NOT allergic, but we never know who will be. So
if you would like to take advantage of this complimentary test... you must schedule your consult
and test at least 5 days PRIOR TO the actual procedure. SPECIFY OPTION A or OPTION B (above).
|BE SURE TO READ ON, there's a lot to learn to prepare you for a satifying
experience. I'm looking forward to the opportunity of helping you!
ARE YOU AFRAID TO BE STUCK WITH ONE LOOK?
Well, if you DON'T get permanent makeup, you will surely be stuck with plain! (insert chirping crickets here...)
I'm just playing... but really, there is nothing to worry about (if things are done right...) Because NO
PERMANENT MAKEUP should be so overwhelming that you can't enhance it every day with a little something
DIFFERENT... If you DO get permanent makeup, you’re going to look “better” than you would, if you had no
makeup on at all. And that feels pretty good on those days when you don’t have time to apply make up ...or just
don't feel like it.
Permanent or Semi-Permanent? Honestly, It’s ALL considered permanent because it will not smear or wash
off, but some techniques are applied more superficially, creating softer and more natural looking results, while
others are darker and longer lasting. The down side of the softer approach, is that it fades faster than
traditional tattoos. The downside to the darker application is that it can look too harsh and ...fake.
Great Candidates for permanent makeup include . . .
- Women allergic to traditional cosmetics.
- Those who have lost motor skills, and can no longer apply their own makeup.
- Busy Professionals, who have limited time.
- Women with oily skin who struggle to keep their makeup in place.
- Athletes, gardeners, swimmers who want to look good, but not totally made up.
- Men and women who have facial scars, especially in the brow area.
- People with other scarring due to injury or post surgical scarring.
- Women who have had mastectomies or breast augmentation surgeries.
YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER PERMANENT MAKEUP IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, NURSING A BABY
OR HAVE DIABETES...
MY PERSPECTIVE ON PERMAMENT COSMETICS...
There's a very fine line between too much and just enough permanent makeup.... the problem is,
that line is different for EVERY CLIENT. So, it is MY job, to find that line... without creating permanent
problems - ON YOUR FACE. It can be tricky... every procedure is experimental because we never know exactly
how things will turn out. But if we go slowly, we can avoid most of the pitfalls that are typically associated with
permanent makeup. We have to always consider the following
- Every client has different skin types. Young skin with a fine and smooth texture may look better than
someone with aged skin. Oily skin may heal differently than dry skin, etc...
- Every client has a different metabolism, and will process each color differently.
- Every client heals at different rates. Faster healers generally do better because the pigment get covered
with new skin more quickly, allowing less release of color.
- Some are on medications that slow down healing.
- SMOKERS may not heal as well as others due to carbon monoxide that blocks oxygen to cell.
- MEDICATIONS AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: Some can benefit the process, while others may
So you see, there is really no way to tell how successfully a person will heal and how much pigment each person
will retain. For this reason, there CAN BE NO GUARANTEES... So I approach each treatment with reasonable
caution and I treat each process as experimental, because it is.
BROWS AND SCAR CAMOUFLAGE vs OTHER PERMANENT COSMETICS...
ALL PERMANENT MAKEUP IS A PROCESS! And taking baby steps always makes for softer, more beautiful
results in the end. Especially true for BROWS and PARAMEDICAL procedures as they require a little more
artistic skill to make things look realistic. Eyeliner and Lips can be applied more dramatically at the first session.
PRICE SHOPPING: CHEAP WORK IS RARELY GOOD ~ GOOD WORK IS NEVER CHEAP. But at the
same time... I do understand money does not grow on trees. But, before settling on price alone, please make
sure that the person who is about to tattoo permanent marks on your FACE, can actually DRAW. If you're not
sure if they can... Just ask them to draw a set of brows on paper to show thier style of drawing. If they don't or
try to draw your brows in on your face... that is a good indicator that the artistic skill set is lacking. Be careful.
Because if you are not happy, you'll end up with regrets and a new bill for corrections.
If you feel that you can't afford high quality work. I am happy to discuss payment plans. I also can now accept
CARE CREDIT. So soon, you too can end your war with shifting brows, smeared eyeliner and vanishing lips!
Just imagine how great it is going to feel, to be in REALLY GOOD HANDS - and to also be free from those
AND JUST SO YOU KNOW...
One reason my prices are higher than some places is that I DON'T HERD PEOPLE IN AND OUT... I work with you
until you are HAPPY! Because of this, I need to schedule less procedures in a day than most other people. This
way, I can spend more time per procedure, which NORMALLY allows for everything to run smoothly.

FREE ALLERGY TESTING: ALLERGIC REACTIONS can happen at any time to anyone. They may show
up immediately following a procedure - or at any point in the future. Even if you've had previous tattoos, permanent
makeup and even if you have never had any other skin reactions. Testing just shows us if you will be "immediately"
affected, and in no way indicates that you will always be free from an allergic reactionS.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT . . .
A. CONSULT with ALLERGY TESTING (Procedure will be done at a later date). The Consult and Allergy Testing
takes about 30 minutes. After testing, you will need to wait at least 5 days to allow time for redness to subside.
Redness after 3-5 days is an indication of either an infection or a reaction. If the test site is flat, and does not seem
to be puffy or red, it is safe to assume you will not have a reaction to the pigment that was tested.
B. CONSULT with PROCEDURE (both done on the same day).
ALLERGY TESTING IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED for your safety! But the truth allergic reactions are extremely
rare. Problem is hile extremely rare, So if you want to minimize potential issues, and decide that you want the test,
you must schedule a separate date for testing (a minimum of 5 days) prior to your procedure for results to appear.
THIS TEST IS STILL NOT A GUARANTEED CONCLUSION that you will not develop an allergy, months or even years
You may decline the test and proceed with the procedure immediately after your consultation, if you choose to.
|TEXTING... IS ALWAYS BEST FOR ME!
I have been experiencing a ton of incoming calls, and I THANK YOU for
that. But, because of the nature of my work, I'm not able to answer the
phone during normal office hours, I am laser beam focused, on whoever
is in my chair. But I would love to talk to you... so in your text, please let me
know of your availibility, and I will contact you back. The times that work
best for me are:
Mornings, between 8-9 am, or in the evenings, after 7:00 pm.
ALL APPOINTMENTS WILL NEED TO BE SECURED WITH A DEPOSIT OF $50.
This is deposit is NOT an extra charge. It is designed to prevent no shows, and the amount will be applied to
your procedure of choice.
ON LINE BOOKING COMING SOON!
Pretty soon, you will be able to log on and book your own appointment on line at PERMETIKA.com
A deposit will be required in advance to prior to secure your appointment. Certain blocks of time will be
available on the calendar to choose from. If you want an appointment outside of the posted time frames, you
may inquire of another date, and if I am able to accommodate you, I will be happy to. Late or Weekend
Appointments are not always available, but when they are, will come with an extra charge.
|Regardless of the procedure you are interested in...
it all boil down to this. I am an artist, and your skin is my
canvas! THE MAIN THING TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT Any time I
inject MY ART into YOUR HUMAN BODY there is going to be a
reaction. It may be 100% favorable or it may need some finessing.
SO EACH PROCEDURE IS BASICALLY EXPERIMENTAL and it
could take multiple sessions. The higher the expectations, the
mores sessions it may take. I try to make everything look as
real and natural as possible. I almost always use multiple
colors to custom blend pigments in with your specific skin
tone, and I will be keeping your personal preferences in
mind the whole time...and, you will have a mirror at your
request just for your own piece of mind.
Just as some artists allow their paintings to dry some
between the layers... I do the same with your skin. It's called
the healing process.
You should KNOW IN ADVANCE that multiple follow-up
sessions are recommended in order to produce the most
realistic results. So there are NO SURPRISES!
|If you don't know a good injector, I would highly recommend that you see
Dr. Victoria Zavala. She's AMAZING and also keeps you looking natural. No
spock brows here! Call her at 713-628-4987. And she's an artist too!
CANCELLATION POLICY: As a courtesy to me and to others who may want
your spot, I would appreciate a 48 hour notice of cancellation. If you do not
offer at least a 24 hour notice of cancellation, the deposit will be forfeited and a
new deposit will be required to reset your appointment. THIS POLICY HAD TO
BE IMPLEMENTED TO HELP PREVENT NO SHOWS.
Hello, I really appreciate everyone for
stopping in! Here, you will find that I
specialize solely, in Micropigmentation
and Medical Aesthetics services.
You can read more about how I got into
this wonderful field, by going to my
ABOUT ME page... but in short, the
reason that I have excelled in this field,
is that I was an ARTIST FIRST, long
before I ever knew about Permanent
Cosmetics. I have a natural eye for
color and symmetry and I am able to
perform Permanent Cosmetics,
that DO NOT look like tattoos, and my
goal, is to ONLY do realistic looking
strokes, that look as real as I can
possibly get them. I do NOT do those
"3D" strokes that look cartoonish, or
like optical illusions!
So, yes... I know why you're here! You are TIRED
of struggling to maintain something, that you
used to not have to worry about. But, you're
hesitant because you don't want to end up with
Well, what if I told you, that there was a way to
ease or even eliminate those worries? What if,
there was a way, for permanent cosmetics to
look almost UNDETECTABLE, other than giving
your face, the support it needs. WOULD YOU
WANT IT? I know you would... but it is very
important, for you to understand HOW I
APPROACH THIS PROCESS. I start out
conservatively! That's how. Regardless, of your
normal makeup routine. You may want a barely
there look or you may want something more
dramatic. BUT, either way, I insist on making the
first session a very soft verson of the end result!
Once healed, I'll be looking for the following data,
as in, how did it heal?
This is epecifically true for brows services:
- Did the strokes stay light and crisp?
- Did the strokes spread out? If so, how
- Did the color stay warm?
- Did the color heal in cooler than expected?
- Did the strokes stay consistent, from
beginning to end?
Once all of this data has been collected, I will
create a new plan. I may use all the same colors
as in the first session, or I may pick new ones to
enhance or counteract the original colors.
Because the bottom line here is, I can use the
same color on 10 people who have similar skin
tones. But each one will heal in with a unique
look. For this reason, I START SLOW. Because
slow and easy, wins the race. And I want to
create award winning, quality permanent
makeup. I don't want to create regrets. Ever.
I know you are most interested in pictures and
But there is a lot more to know... and it really
helps if clients have a FULL UNDERSTANDING of
how I perform this process. Please be sure to
read the following pages:
- PLAN AHEAD
- Prform this process, and you have
decided that you're ready... please send
me a text asking for FIRST AVAILABLE
DATES or offer me at least 2-3 dates, at
least 6-8 weeks in advance. I will confirm
which one works for me, and we will get
BUT FIRST... my goal, is to impress upon you that,
when dealing with "permanent" makeup, SLOW
AND STEADY WINS THE RACE! Which is why my
approach is a conservative one! Because MY
WORK... is only ONE part of the whole mix... The
rest is up to you and your body. For things to heal
in with favorable results, PROPER AFTERCARE is
paramount. As is your YOUR GOOD HEALTH.
Good skin plays a major role in the whole the
picture too. And IF YOU SMOKE or have auto-
immune disorders, or are on medications, fish
oils, or anything that thins your blood, it may take
extra sessions to tweek things into perfection.
THIS is where PATIENCE on your part comes into
play. DO NOT GET FRUSTRATED and go
somewhere else for "a correction" if things don't
turn out exactly perfect. Remember, this is a
process. I assure you, I am capable of handling
anything that happens, unless your body totally
rejects the pigment. Which, unfortunately can
happen... and neither of us can control that.
So, read on because there is no possible way to
explain every little thing to every client...
(because I am one, and you are many!) So I need
you to think about this and learn as much as you
can. Then, when we finally meet, you will have an
understanding of how I think, and how this
delicate process of permanent makeup should
be approached. The best results come from
understanding (and COOPERATING with) THE
To help you understand, I've invested a lot of
time, transferring information from my head to
this website. I feel that this is an investment in
you (so that you get what you want, with no
regrets...) and it's an investment in my reputation
I hope you find the answers to all of your
questions here and get a sense of relief, knowing
that permanent makeup CAN look great.
If you take nothing else away from reading my
website, please understand that I truly care
about YOU and I think my reputation reflects that
feeling. I will always tell you the truth...
Like this: If you're looking for absolute
perfection, I'll say that's probably an unrealistic
goal - especially if you expect too much, too fast.
You just can't rush this process... and expect
perfection. But with time and patience, I know
how beautiful it can be when I am allowed to
perform a layering process that takes place over
a period of a few months. Most people need to
heal for at least 4-6 weeks before adding
subsequent layers, so it just takes time.
I am confident, that together, we will create
something beautiful! You will never experience a
solid, fake looking filled in look. Each stroke will
be deliberately placed, just as an artist would do
when creating a realistic looking piece of art!
|In April of 2014, I was honored to have been asked by
Lauren Freeman of CHANNEL 2 NEWS to do a segment
on MicroHair Simulation. It was a great experience, and
brought light to a much needed process to help men and
women who are struggling daily with hair loss.

is an extremely effective alternative to expensive Laser Procedures...

ALLERGY SKIN TESTING IS OFFERED AT NO CHARGE:
You may ACCEPT or DECLINE testing, but I highly recommend it. Even if you
have never experienced a skin reaction, you don't want YOUR FACE to be the
first place it happens... If accepted, testing should be administered at least
one week prior to your procedure. The actual test only takes about a minute.
|FOR MEN: I ONLY recommend Micro Hair Simulation if you
are looking for a clean shaven look, as shown above. For men
who are unable to part with the hair that hasn't fallen out... you
should know, that there is NO WAY to make tattooing look like
your natural hair, if you don't keep it shaved, or at least 1-3 days
growth. Even the BEST attempts will not be as flattering as a
bald look. I DO NOT PERFORM HAIR SIMULATION FOR MEN
WHO ARE NOT COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING A BALD
FOR WOMEN: If you are suffering from mild hair loss, this
process will help you appear to have fuller hair, by applying some
color on the scalp, it reduces the reflection of light through
thinning hair. Again, if your hair loss is significant, this might
not be the best procedure for you.
