Lani is a native of Arizona. She grew up in the Valley before going to Arizona State University to pursue her passion for the arts. Lani graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in drawing and painting. She then went on to get her Master of Fine Art degree at Utah State University. Afterwards, she spent a number of years teaching at various colleges and universities in subjects such as humanities, drawing, and painting until her mom asked her for some help with her electrolysis business.
After getting her certification in electrolysis in 1992 from the Arizona Institute of Electrolysis, Lani joined her mom in her business. It was there that Lani discovered her second passion: being an electrologist. Lani’s mother, Deanna, expanded on the training Lani received in school while working alongside her. Deanna’s guidance and mentoring, in conjunction with Lani’s steady hand and eye for detail that she developed through her fine art training, have combined to turn Lani into an exceptional electrologist. She has now been in the industry for over 29 years, and she loves every minute of it.
Lani has continued to receive training and certifications as she has expanded the business into other areas. She obtained her CLT and LSO certifications when she bought her first laser in 1993 and started performing laser hair removal. She also obtained her PM certification when she began performing permanent makeup.
Lani is an established artist who continues to use her artistic ability creating beautiful drawings, ceramic masks, and making and selling her jewelry. Her fine arts training, eye for detail, and steady hand have made her an exceptional electrologist. She’s always looking for new, current technologies to improve long-lasting, visual results for her clients.

Early in her aesthetics career Dr. Laura became a trainer for the Matrix fractional CO2 where she taught other physicians how to operate the lasers. Because the aesthetic industry is always evolving, Dr. Laura continues to stay current by attending webinars, training and conferences.
Meet Alisha, the newest member of Lani’s family. While she and Lani are not actuallly related to each other, we love her so much she might as well be and we are sure you’ll love her too. Once you look past her bubbly personality you’ll see that Alisha has a passion for esthetics and loves to pamper the clients throughout their treatments. Just like Lani, Alisha was born and raised here in the east valley. When she is not at work she and her husband are busy at home raising their 2 children. Alisha loves the outdoors, biking, walks and enjoying time with her family.

I completed the massage program at Arizona School of Massage Therapy in 2005. I received a special award for completing additional clinic hours. I never had a massage prior to school, but gave friends shoulder rubs and I loved how I made them feel and just knew massage therapy was what I was supposed to do.
I have since completed over 175 hours of continuing education in trigger point therapy, deep tissue, hot stone, lymphatic massage, prenatal massage, infant massage, and aromatherapy modalities. My passion is to help people physically and mentally, and massage therapy does just that!
Entering the Beauty Industry many years ago led me to a great desire to become certified in the field of Permanent Cosmetics. I was hearing the concern and complaints from women I had met along the way about eyebrows disappearing and losing shape, trying to draw on a straight eyeliner because it was getting hard to see, and having too thin or misshaped lips.
There was also another side of the business that really touched my heart, and that was Areola tattoo after breast cancer reconstruction, and scar camouflage.
Shortly after attending my first “basics class”, Microbladed Brows hit the scene and I loved the natural look, so I signed up for one of the first advanced classes in that technique. Since then I have chosen to continually learn new techniques, and about types of machines and accessories used. I also included certification in removal of old or unwanted tattoo pigment.
I feel most proud when I hear how happy my clients are because they no longer have to worry about trying to get things drawn on just right, and the time it saves them when getting ready to go somewhere.
