Dr. Dixon is both a Dental Hygienist and a physician specializing in Anesthesiology. She attended
the University of Hawaii School of Medicine in 1969 and
graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in
1972. She is a pioneer in permanent makeup beginning in 1979 when she requested to have her eyeliner tattooed at Skin Deep in Lahaina. They had never heard of such a thing but she promised to sit still while they tried to put a line around her eyelids without any pain control. That experience, both painful and minimally successful, started Dr. Dixon on the path to create pain control in permanent makeup in the mid-nineties. She bought her first tattoo machines from two brothers in New York in 1991 and has been practicing
permanent makeup since 1995. She does approximately 20-30 cases per week and educates other permanent makeup professionals including her three apprentices. She discovered and developed the Dixon Technique which has begun to revolutionize the entire profession because it produces rich lipcolor, eyebrow hair-like strokes and smoky, smudgy eyeliner in less time with better color results.
