When she was 8, licensed aesthetician and permanent make-up artist Victoria Knight watched her mother struggle with the ravages of chemotherapy, a treatment that required her to wear wigs and create her eyebrows with a pencil. She saw how important beauty can be to a woman's identity and was inspired to become a beauty expert who helps others realize their optimal looks.
Today, at The Skin Studio, Victoria draws on her experience in certified oncology esthetics, micro needling, and permanent makeup to help safely beautify her clients. She prefers to use natural products, as to avoid toxic ingredients. During permanent-makeup applications, she fashions shapely brows and defined lips while clients rest comfortably under a shield of topical anesthetics, deciding where in their yard they should cremate their old makeup. She also loves using the DermaPen, which boosts the body's collagen and elastin without chemicals or filler, therefore camouflaging scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. Her emphasis on health even carries over to the physical aspects and amenities of her workplace. The water cooler is made from glass, not plastic, and the water itself comes from a spring in Arkansas, waiting to be served cool or boiled for cups of organic tea.
