Client Stories & Testimonials

Deborah Dassion is the first professional who has truly helped me improve my skin. Adult acne had become a part of my life I embarrassingly and painfully thought I had to live with! Deborah’s ability to treat skin comes from her genuine interest in healing and helping which manifests into two key areas of skincare: the products used at home and the treatments given at Lasting Image. Let me tell you how Deborah’s approach to these two areas is different.


Prior to working with Deborah I had succumbed to women at department store counters, purchasing entire lines of expensive products! I’ve tried every drugstore product, tried making my own products, tried TV and home-business ordered products . Many dollars and plenty of hope have been wasted thinking “maybe these products will work”. The products that Deborah found for my skin actually work to treat my acne because she spent time getting to know my specific skin needs and reading the ingredients in the products. She researched and ordered products just for me to try. My products might not work for someone else – Deborah’s objective is finding products just for me and she does this for all of her clients. She gives samples when appropriate and wanted my feedback. She is a skin care professional, not a sales representative, she wants you to have products that help you.


I am no stranger to spending hundreds of dollars for “packages” of lasers and peels. Upscale salons with “signature facials”, fancy decorations, gongs, hot stones, silk robes and aroma therapy have cleared my wallet faster than they’ve cleared my skin. Deborah discussed my skin care goals and customized treatments along with agreements for my financial concerns saving me time and money. I enjoyed the relaxing environment after my busy schedule. My husband was honestly happy when I told him what I had spent after my last treatment with Deborah because he could see the improvement in my skin and knows how much I’ve spent on treatments from other previous places. With Deborah, you come in for what your skin needs not whatever she’d like to bill you for next; her integrity is inspirational and her treatments are effective.
The difference I have seen in my skin after visiting Deborah for treatments and trying the products she has found for me is amazing. As a business owner myself, I am equally impressed with the way Deborah runs her business for the benefit of her clients. Let Deborah Dassion take you and your skin on a journey towards healing, wellness and beauty. You will benefit from her desire to help you and enjoy the trip!

I have always been self conscious about my lips. This insecurity caused me to wear lipstick and lip liner constantly. I believe the insecurity came from my lips being very thin and lacking color. In fact, the color of my lips actually blended into my skin tone causing me to look as if if I didn’t wear something.

Approximately 5 years ago, I had my lips tattooed by a local permanent make-up facility. At this time, I was able to have a dental hygiene person put several shots in my mouth to lessen the expected pain. As a result, I ended up falling asleep while the procedure was taking place. Afterwards my lips swelled unbelievably large. I have small lips to begin with, so I was naturally quite shocked and in significant pain over the next few days until the swelling went down. My intent was to have a dark deep pink color. In the end, I had several purple blotches, a thick purple liner which was slightly uneven on the lower corners of my mouth. Although I achieved more color than I had, I was still self conscious about the results and continued to wear lipstick and liner over it.

Recently Debra Dassion corrected the purple blotches and liner. She did this by countering purple with a coral color. The next step will be to add color. However, I can honestly say that the experience is markedly different from my first procedure. There was minimal swelling that lasted one night, minimal pain with only topical anesthetic, and best of all the purple discolorations are gone. I am no longer self conscious as I have normal color, natural looking but slightly larger lips as a result of taking the liner to the outward edges. I love it and look forward to adding more color for the final result. At this point, I am very impressed with Debra’s ability, as my shape has never been better and the color is so much better than ever before. I have already and continue to highly recommend Debra for anyone considering this procedure.


I am not a person who typically puts on makeup. For forty years I could not wait to get home so I could remove my one nod to vanity: lipstick. It came off before the shoes. I did not like the feel of lipstick and was always frustrated by how often it had to be reapplied. Although the “all day” color did last better, it dried my lips so terribly.  Now with a very natural permanent lip color I look better, I am far more comfortable, and I have the option of wearing lipstick for a different look only when it suits me. Best of all, I have the confidence of knowing that my face has some nice color at any time of the day or night.

Contrary to what most women may think, having permanent color added to one’s lips is really very easy. And having the convenience of “get up, get dressed, get going” is such a joy. If you are thinking of having permanent appearance enhancement, I truly believe you cannot find anyone more knowledgeable, meticulous, and careful. You has made my lips look wonderful, and my self esteem has grown. In three days I’m coming back for eye makeup and even a greater boost to my self image. It couldn’t be any easier or safer than allowing you to work your magic. I can’t wait to see the new and improved me.


“I just want to thank you for all the care you have given to me and my mother. Before I came to you I was feeling old and washed out and I guess a little washed up. With the facials and the knowledge you have given me I have a new confidence.

The three skin products you have recommended have brightened my skin and it looks and feels amazing. The cleanser is so fantastic I can’t imagine a day without it. It makes my face feel hydrated and fresh and youthful. I have spent so much money on skin care products that have done nothing at all. Now I have three products that I will never be without. My mom feels the same way. You have given us knowledge and care not only for our skin but for our entire well being. Thank you for caring and sharing. You are truly an asset to the community. I hope to have a lasting friendship with you.”

If you’ve never considered permanent make-up you should. It’s been one of the best investments I’ve made for myself. It has now been a few weeks since my visit to see you requesting a transformation from fading facial features to the exciting rejuvenated look you gave me.

I was so honored to have you perform with ease the perfect eye liner and the natural permanent lip color just like I had when I was in my twenties. It took off at least 10 years! Everyone who’s seen me is impressed. I love to get up in the morning now, plus having a “wash and go” face saves me time & money! What was the most rewarding of all of this was how you made me feel. Your care and gentleness relaxed me and the results of your incredible art work help to bring back my self esteem. I marvel at the results and am pleased with the gift I gave myself, a visit to Deborah Dassion, the amazing permanent make up artist.

This is an actual photo of my beautiful lips directly after tattooing.  Deborah did a wonderful job!  I had my lip liner tattooed seven years ago and the difference between the two experiences was dramatic – I did not have any swelling, scabbing (followed by peeling) or scarry patchy areas following treatment.  I love the color of my lips.  I have the color of youth and love it!

Permanent makeup is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. In my experience, you will not find a better artist for your procedure than Deborah Dassion.

She has given me perfectly shaped brows and beautiful full colored lips that I am complimented on time and again. I would do this again in a minute and recommend her to anyone who wants the confidence and time savings that permanent makeup can bring.
