Customized Color Rejuvenation for Men & Women by Laurel Leof


Micropigmentation is a process of depositing color pigment into the skin to restore or enhance your youthful appearance.

I use state-of-the-art medical equipment (manufactured by Nouveau Contour). The Intelligent device is equipped and controlled by an Intel microprocessor chip, which allows for the selection of pre-programmed settings for various procedures, including eyebrow, eyeliner, lip color and medical procedures.

A topical numbing agent is used before and throughout the procedure to avoid discomfort and minimize any pain. This method is safe and sanitary, and gives a beautiful, natural look. You will love the results -- all of my clients do! Photos and references are available upon request.


Micro: extremely small.
Pigmentation: coloration, especially of the skin.
Micropigmentation or intradermal implantation, is the process of implanting microinsertions of color pigment into the dermal layer of skin. This process is a form of tattooing used for many purposes, cosmetic and medical.

Cosmetic: involving or relating to treatment intended to restore or improve a person's appearance.

Virtually Pain-Free

Topical anesthetic (such as Lidocaine, Tetracaine, etc.) is used so you feel little or no discomfort. If you feel the need, your doctor can always prescribe anything you feel is appropriate for your level of comfort.


Compared to the cost of laser treatments, dermal fillers, scar repair, hair transplants, cosmetics cost and the time taken for application, micropigmentation provides huge savings with remarkably natural looking results!

Safe and Sanitary

The utmost sanitary conditions and procedures are adhered to at all times. All implements, tools and supplies are individual customized one-time use, are sanitized and disposable, and are of the highest quality medical standard.

Long-Lasting, Natural Looking

Although considered "permanent", like any procedure consisting of depositing pigment into the skin, it is recommended you have a retouch (also known as a color boost) approximately once a year.

Induced collagen growth by micropigmentation or needling can continue to develop for up to 6 months, provided no anti-inflammatory medications (including natural supplements) are used.

Rapid Results

A procedure requires about 1-1/2 hours, including a customized color-rejuvenation plan, grooming/shaping consultation, followed by the procedure itself.
