equipment she uses penetrates the third and
forth layer of the skin for the procedures to
last longer, as opposed to a regular tattoo
parlor. In her application,
the color doesn’t sit at the surface of the skin
for it to come off that easily.
Jaudon expresses that “the biggest
compliment I get is when someone doesn’t know I
am wearing permanent makeup”.
Her eyeliner is 7 years old, never
touched up. Her eyebrows and
lips have lasted 5 years before a minor
enhancement. Although the
duration of the permanent makeup is quite
standard in the industry, Jaudon clarifies that
every body is different.
Once the color is implanted, one person’s body
metabolizes it differently than another’s.
Regardless, move over
Maybelline, this is extended wear makeup!
When asked what her most common cosmetic
procedure was, Jaudon mentions that it
is the eyebrows, which is also the most
common procedure industry wide.
Nearing a close
second is eyeliner. Contrary
to the popular assumption, amongst most
of her patients, that the eyeliner
application will hurt, Jaudon explains
that most people just build up that fear
in their mind. They
are most apprehensive about this
particular procedure due to the thought
of a needle approaching their eye.
But in reality, Jaudon describes
the technique as something that tickles
(with a topical anesthesia applied, of
course). The healing
process for the eyelids is quick.
The lips, however, are a much
larger area with a different tissue.
Therefore, that application takes
longer to heal.
Jaudon's office setting
addition to the aesthetics and convenience of
having permanent makeup for eyebrows and
eyeliner, there are a number of patients (men
and women) that visit Jaudon for medical
reasons. Jaudon treats a lot
of individuals that have been through
chemotherapy and radiation.
“The eyebrows just don’t grow back, or they do
just really sparse. I also
help alopecia patients, those with an autoimmune
disease where the hair doesn’t grow on their
body at all.
Trichotillomania patents pull their hair and
eyelashes out. So, I’ll
apply eyeliner on them as well”. Jaudon
frequently donates her time to eyebrows for
someone that has had chemotherapy.
She doesn’t even keep track of how much
time she has dedicated toward these procedures.
The time is recorded, of coarse, per
client and per chart. But,
the total of hours of time?
Jaudon can’t even recall.
didn’t find it surprising that the largest
demographic in her personal practice were those
individuals in their middle 40’s.
If I had unlimited resources and spent
decades applying my makeup, I would find an
easier and faster approach as well!
However, I was surprised to hear that she
has a number of women that come in for cosmetic
makeup even in the 80’s and upper 80’s.
Jaudon explained that the reason for
patients of such an age is mostly more than just
waking up with instant beauty.
“Your eyesight starts to change in your
middle to late 40’s”, Jaudon mentioned. There is
a woman she is currently working on that has
degenerative eye disease and will be blind
within the next year. “ She
came to me before going blind so she can see
what her permanent makeup will look like before
going blind. When she comes
back to me over the years, she can trust that it
will look good. That is very
humbling. The woman felt
that she got her dignity back.
She felt like she could face the world
and not ask for help from her husband to apply
her makeup anymore”. After
placing makeup on her first blind patient within
three months of graduating from intradermal
school, Jaudon decided she wanted to take her
career in this medical direction for the rest of
Jaudon’s personal practice, she mostly services
Although she enjoys it, her heart lays with
medical side. She describes
one patient she treated that had brain surgery
earlier in life and had a full head of hair that
hid his scars, at the time.
However, after aging and hair loss, he revealed
the scars on his scalp. “I
camouflaged his scars so you couldn’t even tell.
The scar camouflage turned out really
amazing. There are a lot of
people out there that need help that don’t even
know something like this exists.
People can get help from a burn, a car
accident, or even vitaligo”.
Jaudon also worked with a burn victim that had
hypertrophic scarring. She
broke it down, loosened it, and then matched all
of the skin graphs to one color.
“It’s the most rewarding”.
are her future directions?
She spoke at the Ohio Board of Health about
representing her industry in Ohio, she sits on
the board for The Alliance for Safe Practice and
is the spokesperson for the state of Ohio.
Jaudon is very involved with putting
together the International Intradermal Board of
Cosmetics and is very active and passionate
about changing the laws of the industry.
She would like the industry to have more
accountability and have more regulated laws for

Literally, her PDA will buzz when you fill out
the form (as I witnessed in our meeting)!
Although it may be her
secretary that calls you back, she’ll be the
first to know about your interest in her
intradermal options. After
that, all of her clients are required to meet
with her for a consultation before the actual
procedure takes place. She’ll
discuss your medical records, review care
instructions, and explain the after-care package
in detail. Jaudon will send
you home with sterile packs of topical ointment
and schedule a follow up with you before you
leave. She currently works with seven doctors at
three different Northeast Ohio locations:
Beachwood, Strongsville, and Wooster.
Right now, she is offering a full-face
permanent cosmetic discount especially for the
holiday season. See the
