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. In addition to her own clients, she has helped educate other permanent makeup professionals throughout the world. She discovered and developed the Dixon Technique which revolutionized the entire profession because it produces rich lipcolor, eyebrow hair-like strokes and smoky, smudgy eyeliner in less time with better color results.
A native of Reno, Nevada, Dr. Dixon first came to Hawaii in 1969 and lived in Haleiwa while attending the University of Hawaii Medical School. Her three children are grown. She practiced medicine in Marin County, California for 17 years and for 16 years in Hawaii at Straub Clinic and Hospital, Castle Medical Center, St. Francis and Tripler Army Medical Center.
