Her approach to Permanent Cosmetics is to keep it natural looking and use the best products available.  She uses only Iron Oxide free, MRI safe inks for permanent makeup on the face (eyeliner, lip liner etc.) as well as for permanent cosmetics for scar camouflage, areola repigmenting, and correction of skin hypopigmentation issues from conditions such as Vitiligo.

Her emphasis in skin care lies not only in correction, but also in prevention. Her philosophy is simple: True beauty lies in true health. Her approach to every treatment plan is to incorporate healing, nutritional products and treatments that promote healthier skin and therfore a more beautiful complexion and overall appearance.  Linda is eager to serve your skin care and permanent makeup needs with commitment and compassion.
