Featured in beauty magazines, on ABC's 20/20, and on local news programs for her work in permanent cosmetics, Dixie Medford is both the owner of Classic Beauty Concepts and a certified permanent-cosmetic educator. Along with medical-grade skincare services, Medford can implant upper layers of skin with micropigments in permanent cosmetic sessions, eliminating the need for daily makeup applications or naps in a box of crayons. As she fills in brows and adds soft hues to lips, Medford carefully selects the shapes, colors, and designs that best complement skin color and features. Medford practices traditional makeup application techniques with her micropigments, as well as camouflaging scars and adding beauty marks. Her beauty repertoire also includes light- to medium-depth chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion, and ultrasonic facials.
