Poorly Deisgned Eyebrows and Eyeliner, Uneven Concentration of Color
 
The most common question we hear is
“How Much Does Permanent Makeup Cost?”
 
Lower Eyelash Enhancement that went from Bad to Worse 
 
When considering Permanent Cosmetics …
Your Face shouldn’t go to the Lowest Bidder!
Rather, the most experienced one!

Cost is important;
Everyone wants Value for their Dollar.
As you shop around
What’s More Important to Ask is …
 
"How long have you been
Doing Permanent Cosmetics?
And How Many Procedures do you do a Day? a Week? A Month? "

Blue Eyebrows and Blue Eyeliner
 
The Credentials and Experience of your
Technician counts, because you’ll be
Wearing them on your Face … Permanently!

Permanent Cosmetics Education is not regulated in the State of Texas. The State does regulate the Asepsis Practices we follow and the paper work we keep. It requires that you take a yearly 6 hour OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Class and pay a Licensing Fee.

Because that is all the Education Required, there are many 2 and 3 Day Weekend Training Courses with Overcrowded Classrooms all over Texas and the Nation Luring Students in to "Get Rich Quick!"

This is Not a New Problem, it's been happening since just before the year 2000.

This puts a lot of Unskilled Technicians out there that Do Not have either the Knowledge or Hands-on Training to do work on a Professional Scale. 
 
Badly Designed and Wrong Color Choice on Permanent Eyebrows
 
Most of them Quit after a Few Failed Procedures.
Only a few of them go forward to find
Quality Education and Succeed.

Even those in a doctor’s office or expensive salons may not be the best choice if they are not properly trained.

Surely, it is important to You to know that your practitioner is well trained in artistry, technical skill and cross-contamination prevention.

Permanent Cosmetics by Roxanne Gloria aka
American Micropigmentation Academy has been training Technicians for 20 years. The training is above and beyond what the Industry standard outlines.

However, it’s up to the individual Technician to seek out the best quality education they can find before they start making Permanent Changes on women’s faces.

Be wary of those who do Permanent Makeup as an addition to their regular salon services so as not to be able to truly master something as intricate, delicate and technical as Permanent Cosmetics.
Eyebrow Brown Color Placed on the Lips, Bad Idea! 
 
If one does not perform procedures consistently they are certain to be rusty and lack necessary skills.

Unevenly applied Thick Eyeliner, Pigment Migration on Lower Left Corner. Technician tried to cover this Mistake with White and added Eyeliner Highlighter above upper lids that will never go away. (What a Deal)
 
There are many technicians who put less value on their work and want to MOO-VE people In and Out as fast as possible like CATTLE just to make as much money as they can in one day.  Don’t - be - part - of - the - Cattle!

Bad Design, Uneven Concentration of a Bad Color: Too Purple  
 
“We often see clients who’ve had work done by women from across the border which is very light and splotchy, who told us the technician promised to return to finish the work in a second visit but never came back.” ~ Brenda Gloria

     “Roxanne did Permanent Cosmetics for 27 years, Brenda for 19.  In the first ten years we would see two to three Corrective Cases a year, in the next ten years we would see two to three Corrective Cases a month, Sadly now about two people each week ask about corrective services. We don’t match competitors’ prices because they can’t match our quality or expertise.”

Have you ever noticed that many of the pictures you see from one website to another look very much the same? 
 
As you shop around make sure you ask your prospective technician to show you images of their OWN work.
 
Unevenly Designed Permanent Eyebrows, Technician tried to balance by adding White above and below.
 
One of the most tragic things in the industry is that New Technicians are able to buy Before and After Portfolios with beautiful stock photos of work that is not their own but sold to them from supply distributors. This practice is deceptive and unethical, but has been happening for many years.

 "A few of my past clients have chosen to go to other Technicians because they were cheaper. Later they come to me for Corrective work and explain that they thought all Permanent Cosmetic Technicians were trained the same. For this reason I've spoken at many local women's groups and Beauty Schools through out South Texas to educate the public on how no educational standards is plaguing our Industry." ~ Roxanne Gloria

Pigment Migration on Outside of Eye, Technician tried to cover the Mistake with White. White DOES NOT cover this kind of mistake, it blends together like Creamer and Coffee and creates a New Color.
 
"There is some really bad permanent makeup walking around out there in the world. I see it every day. Many of the women who come in for a Corrective Consultation confess to me they where "price shopping" and lived to regret it.” ~ Roxanne Gloria
 
Err Eye 2
Uneven Design, Uneven Concentration on Permannent Eyeliner
 
Consider this:  Why do people pay for a skilled hair stylist? Because they know how to deliver beautiful results every time. Over the course of a year you’ll spend easily a couple of hundred dollars at the salon. Permanent Makeup can last for 3 to 5 YEARS before it needs a retouch. Your face is worth paying for Quality instead of something you have to cover up.

Before you decide on a Technician, ask questions and choose wisely, don’t just get in their chair and hope for the best. And remember ...  Never base your decision on price alone!

Roxanne Gloria wrote the laws for the State of Texas and has petitioned the State Legislature every two years since 1994 (When tattooing became regulated for the first time in Texas) to adopt the education portion of the bill. In 2001 Roxanne and Brenda Gloria were successful in getting them to adopt the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. This was a great step in the right direction. Brenda Gloria continues to petition the State to adopt educational standards for Permanent Makeup in the State of Texas.

Remember:
Don't go to Someone's home or apartment to have Permanent Makeup. It's illegal to work where you live or live where you work.
Don't let anyone inject you with anything unless they've been given Doctor's orders and are in a medical setting.
Don't go to someone who comes from across the border, you know nothing of their education, experience, understanding of infection control, or personal Integrity. Don't trust them to return for any promised follow up work or to follow our minimum asepsis standards the Health Department requires of Texas Technicians.

Wrong Color Choice, Uneven Concentration of Color
 
 
"The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." - Anonymous
 
 
     All Fees for Corrective Work are quoted in person.
 
The price range is usually between $495.00 and $995.00 and is dependent on the number of visits it will take for Brenda to make the procedure appear as good as if she had done it herself from the beginning. 
    
 Wrong Color Placed Way Beyond the Natural Border of the Lips    
 
 We offer a Free No Obligation Consultation
for Anyone Needing Corrective Work. 
 
 The Eyebrow Hairstrokes whouldn't have looked bad if the color wasn't Blue!
 
During the consultation Brenda will evaluate the appearance of the undesired work, ask what the client desires as a finished healed result, and explain what other options exist and what can be done with Permanent Cosmetics Corrective Work.
 
 Wrong Color Placed Way Beyond the Natural Border of the Lips
 
Brenda will estimate how many visits it will take to achieve the desired goal, take a before photo and give a written price quote. The before photo will be attached to a consultation form and held in a pending file until the potential client makes a decision to proceed.
 
Unbalanced Design and Wrong Colors on Eyebrows, Original Color Turned Red, Covered by Second color which Turned Blue, Technician tried to add Highlighter below Eyebrows by adding White.
 
If the potential client chooses to go somewhere else and later returns, a new price quote will be written. Corrective Work is paid up front and there is no additional charge for the duration of the correction after that Retouch Fees apply.    
    
Bad Color Choice for Eyebrows, Uneven Design in Eyeliner
 
     Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have some degree of flexibility in changing color and design to some extent. The primary thing considered in Corrective Work is what needs correcting?  Color?, Design?, Color & Design?     We've found that Corrective Work comes in three main categories: easy, moderate and extreme.     
    
Color Placed Unevenly Beyond the Natural Border of the Lips
 
     Sometimes we see an easy fix such as a poor design that just needs a little re-balancing or an uneven color concentration meaning spots that appear too light, too dark and some areas that are just right. This type of fix can usually be done in one or two visits. For an easy fix the charge is much less.     
 
      Wrong Color Placed Way Beyond the Natural Border of the Lips
 
     A Moderate fix is when the design is unbalanced and the color is wrong. Clients who come in are usually hiding the uneven design with concealer and adding make up to correct the color. This kind of fix will take more than two visits and is appropriately priced.    
 
     Wrong Color Placed Way Beyond the Natural Border of the Lips
 
     In an extreme corrective case, we’ve seen everything you could possibly imagine and more. Sometimes the client has been to multiple Technicians who each promised to make it better but made the problem worse. Obvious uneven designs, wrong colors and multiple layers of colors are much more difficult to correct. For a hard fix the charge and the number of visits is much more and will require a commitment from the client to see the correction to its end, this is why we charge up front.   
 
 Pigment Migration below the Eyeliner
 
     Keep in mind that Corrective Work is a specialty in the field of Permanent Cosmetics and considered an advanced procedure and should not be attempted by someone "new" in the Industry. Permanent Makeup is easy to put on, but not easy to correct or change.

This is why we encourage everyone to choose their Technician wisely.
 
This is why we Never Shave Off Natural Eyebrows
