Challenges of corrective work...
"Corrective work is a large part of my practice; as an artist you are presented with a "canvas" that has already been worked on and you have to transform it.  It can be quite challenging but it is wonderful for clients that are and have been unhappy with a poor outcome of their permanent makeup.

"Corrective work has helped me become extremely creative."

- Elaine

Permanent cosmetics is a highly technical art form and its intricacies cannot be overstated.  Choose your provider carefully.  You are about to let someone "tattoo" your face permanently.  It is always heartbreaking when women with less than desirable outcomes from their permanent makeup come in.
"The bitterness of poor workmanship lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten."

- Kitty
There has been a tremendous increase in the amount of corrective work performed by Elaine Pichet's Artistic Touch over the past few years.  I  want to stress the limitations involved in procedures designed to improve and/or correct a previous application done by another provider.

Corrective work can be extremely challenging for all concerned.  As a client, you have the definite expectations of the outcome of your corrective work.  As a provider, I can only do so much since I am trying to rectify a procedure you previously received.

Corrective work is priced as a brand new procedure and will include only one (1) touch up approximately six (6) weeks later.  If additional work is necessary, there will be an additional charge for every other appointment.

The epitome of corective work.  This client had at least three other providers work on her to no evident success.
Correcting the "blue" color can be difficult; utterly transformed after one corrective procedure.  More will be necessary.
Not only do we need to correct the solid "bluish" brow, but we need to soften the exagerated arch.
After corrective work; tremendous outcome.  A beautiful, fuller natural looking brow featuring micro hairline strokes.

The field of permanent cosmetics is not a regulated industry in the State of Arizona. There are many providers offering this service that are not credentialed. As per the HB 2666-441-H, it is unlawful for a person to engage in the business of tattooing out of a home. Make sure you research your provider. The two national organizations offering certifications are the American Academy of Micropigmentation (A.A.M.) and the Society of Permanent Makeup Professionals (S.P.C.P.). In order to keep their credentials, providers must obtain a certain amount of continuing education credits every year.
