Thin, sparse or non-exist brows? We have you covered with the very latest in advanced brow tattooing and microblading. Hybrid brows, Ombré, Nano-brows, powder-fill...so Many choices! We have completed THOUSANDS of brow procedures since 2005.
A soft and subtle liner or something more dramatic, your safety is our priority. Have years of freedom from eyeliner application in just a few visits to Le Beau Visage Permanent Cosmetics.
Clients often want the definition and contrast returned to their lips without the "committment" to a permanent lip color. We have your solution to lips that have faded away on your face!
Every correction case is unique. The unfortunate situation when a client has been somewhere where things didn't go as expected can often be significantly improved. We can remove, lighten or correct many mishaps....in time!
By custom placement of skin colored pigments lighter areas of the skin can be tattooed to blend away those bothersome scars or stretch marks.
Physician recommended, we provide all types of treatment for breast augmentation and reconstruction and treatment of stable vitiligo.
With SO many different names being thrown around on social media and the web, my clients are getting so confused! Nano-brows, digital microblading, machine brows, hybrid brows, ombre' brows, micro-shading...the list goes on and on. When you come to Le Beau Visage we will discuss with you what options are best for your skin type and style to achieve your desired result. When you give us a call just mention you'd like to discuss your eyebrows and we go from there!
The short answer... tens of thousands! We have been providing this service since 2005 and we have been so successful that we do have a wait to get in, BUT that is a good thing because it means we are doing these services the "right way"!
Well, it depends! We do not provide the same style or procedure on each client, so we do not have a set "fee" for certain procedures. Some places charge one fee for each procedure, and what we have found over the many years of this business is that each individual has specific needs, then based on those needs we can properly determine the fee!
With many people commonly wearing a face covering in public, eyebrows have never been as important as they are now to lend a natural framework to your face. Eyebrows not only bring youthfulness back to the face but it also creates a pleasant frame for the eyes. Without our natural expressions being able to be seen behind a mask, we will be relying on our eyes and eyebrows to do all the work!
There will be "new" words coming across social media platforms. They will be discussing "machine" brows, "Nano-Brows" or other similar words as the newer microblading artists begin to learn about machine work. Machine work is safer, better and it lasts longer BUT it isn't easy to do! You should trust your brows to someone that has done thousands of brows with this technique!
Come in and find out how we can make NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL and amazing eyebrows for you.
Precision Depth Control with Digital Machine Hair Stroke Brows- A Powerful Way to do Brows that LAST!
Like many kinds of art, permanent make-up artists often will have a "style" that they are drawn to. At Le Beau Visage, our style is all about NATURAL enhancements. We do not recommend or perform "trendy" or overdone permanent make-up. Our desire is to do natural looking, beauty enhancing permanent cosmetics. If you are looking for a "natural" look, you are in the right place.
We were the FIRST and ONLY provider for digital microblading in the North State. Digital hair-stroke brows are created using a tattoo machine and not a handheld micro-blade tool BUT give you that natural "hair stroke look". With a tiny needle which injects pigment into the skin, a skilled artist creates individual “hairs” to mimic the pattern, density and color of natural eyebrow hair. The colored pigments are implanted into the skin a depth which usually results with no bruising or no bleeding during the process. This technique when done correctly “punctures” the skin (verses tearing or cutting the skin with a tiny blade) and utilizes digital technology for a consistent and precise depth within the skin of the implanted color. By puncturing the skin (verses tearing the skin) there is less tissue trauma, better and more efficient healing, more predictable outcome and longer color retention. Clients LOVE that digital microblading lasts LONGER than traditional microblading yet yields a similar result!
Michelle Thau, a California licensed dental hygienist with 15 years of experience in the permanent make-up industry and having completed thousands of procedures, know that our clients want the best. At Le Beau Visage there is no room for cookie cutter brow templates which lend the same shape or style of brow on each face. Everything is custom to YOUR face and you are involved every step of the way. Furthermore, we are well versed in all skin types, conditions and situations because we have been doing these type of brows for so long. We won't share all of our secrets online, but lets just say that we have perfected our technique and you are not going to find ANY practitioners in Northern California that do what we do! Our choice in this industry is to bring something MORE to your service by being an educated and comprehensive provider in all aspects of your procedure.
Results can vary with different skin types, however achieving a soft, natural and subtle look of individual hair-like brows has been a technique practiced exclusively at Le Beau Visage since 2005.
Come find out how digital microblading can change your life!
" Just had my brow touch up with Michelle Thau! I trust in her. I had them done by her 4 years ago so it was time again, and she still amazes me with her expertise! She is the absolute best of the best! Knowledgeable. Professional. Sterile. Confident. Experienced. Passionate, Kind."

Natural Lower Lash Enhancement
1. Today, you will see many people showcase their eyebrow work by ONLY showing one side of the face. This does not allow the client to see how well the artist is able to "balance" eyebrows! One of the most difficult parts of eyebrow enhancements are providing unique symmetry to brows which naturally most often grow asymmetrical. If you are only seeing ONE side of the face, how do you know they are balanced from the front? We purposely show most of our photos from the front, for you to see the our eye for ARTISTRY and they we do not put the same shape brows on every client. This is important when you want a natural look!
2. Are you looking at photos ONLY of the artist's UN-RETOUCHED work? With the ease in photo modification today, be sure you are looking at actual photos of actual clients of the provider. Does every eyebrow shape look the same or are they CUSTOMIZED for the face?
3. In this industry time changes how permanent cosmetics will look. We know from experience that color will indeed fade, sometimes rapidly depending but depends on several factors. Be sure to ask your artist about how long to expect their work to last. Have they seen their work in 1 year, 3 years or 5 years later? Because we have been providing procedures, including eyebrows that are not solid-filled but with hair-strokes since 2005, we know from experience what to expect as the years progress.
4. Lastly, just how many procedures has the artist completed? Those that are new in this industry will often use work from other providers as examples of permanent make-up until they build up their own portfolios.

Researched for the Expert
“If you're searching for a place to get permanent makeup done...this is the place! I spent tons of time looking at reviews and websites and after meeting with Michelle I felt I was in expert hands...and I wasn't wrong! I wasn't looking for a made up look. I wanted natural looking eyebrows like I used to have...and then turned 40!! And now my husband tells me it's one of the best decisions I've made vanity wise. So yes I'm extremely happy!!”
– Gabriella S., Chico CA
A Dog Bite Changed Her Life
"Michelle is incredible! To begin with she took her time explaining how the process would work and went over the numbing procedure which was painless by the way. She is also a dental hygienist and has additional experience working in the medical field. Her professional manner, expertise, and skill made me feel so confident with a procedure that I can imagine was one of her more challenged cases for permanent lip color. Four years ago I was attacked by a dog and lost part of my lower lip as well as a portion of my upper was lip torn apart. I had emergency surgery in the ER to sew my mouth back together and 6 months later had cosmetic surgery but never had the fullness or symmetry that I once had. After trying every lip pencil, gloss and plumper out there I decided that I would visit Michelle. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made and she is a true artist! I can now say that when I look in the mirror I'm so happy to see beautiful, full looking and ruby lips. She did such a fantastic job and I'm not sure why I waited so long. Thank you Michelle for giving me back my smile!"
-Marie, Lincoln, CA
Trusted Michelle to Facial Scar Camouflage
"I had some old acne scars on my face that I have spent years covering up. I was so insecure that it was hard to leave the house sometimes. After researching my options I decided to undergo repimentation on my scars. The procedure involves tattooing the unpigmented areas with ink that matches my skin tone. I am so happy that I trusted Michelle with this procedure. She knocked it out of the park. My experience and the results have exceeded my very high expectations. I am so happy. If you or anyone you know is thinking about having permanent cosmetic work done, medical or otherwise, look no further. You have found the right person to do the job. Thank you Michelle for helping to restore my confidence. I am super grateful. "
- Summer, Chico, CA
Detail Oriented, For 'Perfect" Eyebrows
" I got the pleasure of working with Michelle in getting my now perfect eyebrows. When I was looking for someone to put a tattoo on my FACE (kind of permanent, kind of a big deal) I was nervous and skeptical of the whole process. Does it really last that long? Does it hurt? What if I hate it? IS IT WORTH IT? Michelle is not only extremely detail oriented, with amazing bedside manner. She goes the extra mile with her safety protocols, infection control & patient comfortability. No cross contamination or pain going on under her roof. I'm telling you, it is worth it! She is an outstanding person to work with & I wouldn't go anywhere else."
-Lindsey, Chico CA

"I just want to thank you, my eyeliner looks great! My daughter works for a surgeon in town that does cosmetic surgery and I told him about you, my eyeliner and how happy I was with it. I was raving about you, and next time I see him in a couple of weeks I am going to give him your card." --S.B., Chico, CA
"Michelle is fantastic and a perfectionist in her work! I had my eyeliner, eyebrows and lip liner done and I rate Le Beau with 10 stars. Her individual hair stroke technique on my eyebrows is far superior to other "painted" techniques that are used. My eyeliner looks natural... it's there... my eyes are enhanced, yet I don't look "hard" or made up. And my lip liner is a great enhancer to help define my lips as well." --Tamala, Paradise, CA

It was just what I needed to know that I could still look and feel my absolute best at any age. Thank you so much. Michelle, I will be referring you to everyone I know!” --Mama D.
