Customized to each individual, we utilize a light massage technique and help restore the skins vitality with specially designed products for health challenged skin. $85

Permanent Cosmetics for Brows
A great solution for anticipated brow loss, this procedure would need to be completed 3 weeks before starting any cancer treatments. Permanent Cosmetics is also a great solution for correcting uneven hair growth or loss of hair due to chemotherapy. Not advised while undergoing cancer therapies and during recovery.
Areola Repigmentation – The Finishing Touch to Breast Reconstruction
Areola repigmentation is the process of implanting pigment into the skin surrounding the nipple of a breast following breast reconstruction due to breast cancer. The technician uses a custom blended pigment color that best matches the clients coloring, then, after the client and the technician are satisfied with the size, shape and color of the new areola, the color is implanted into the skin. The procedure takes less than an hour per side and is usually painless. If the patient feels any discomfort topical anesthetic is applied as needed.
