She began as a nurse in 1969, working in area hospitals and physicians' offices. Aside from that, she also served as a business and front office manager, and a dermatology nurse for a dermatologist in Las Vegas. She later on became the director of marketing and operations for a large home health care organization with locations in Utah, Arizona,Nevada and Colorado.

The Makings of an Expert

In 1993, Arnolddecided to apply her years of experience as a nurse in the cosmetics industry to found Professional Permanent Cosmetics and create a quality permanent makeup practice in the Las Vegas Valley. Her strict sterilization techniques and high quality work was immediately recognized, making her a respected member of the medical community.

She is now a recognized expert in the Valley in the field of color adjustments and corrective procedures such as lip color, eyebrows and eyeliner.

Tattoo Vanish, Inc. and Her Causes

So what makes Tattoo Vanish® different from all the tattoo removal procedures out there, such as laser?

This procedure uses a method of tattoo removal similar to applying tattoo or permanent make up to the skin, which minimizes damage to the skin of the patient. Arnold has since perfected this method, making it far superior to any type of laser tattoo removal. Unlike laser tattoo removal, Tattoo Vanish is less painful, more cost-effective as it requires up to 75% fewer treatments for complete removal, and is the only method that will remove all colors where laser cannot.

In 2005,Arnold wrote and sponsored a bill with the help of State Assemblywoman Valerie Weber, to raise the level of entry into the permanent cosmetic profession. After testifying before the Nevada Legislature, the bill passed unanimously in the Nevada State Assembly before being dropped in the Senate. Arnoldhas consistently fought to raise the standards in the profession and has argued for tougher regulations in the state, citing that Nevadacurrently lacks strict regulations and allows for essentially anyone interested to get into the profession.

Arnold is also a constant philanthropist and donates her services to numerous causes. She provides pro bono areola and nipple recreation and repigmentation to any woman that cannot afford the procedure, ensuring that their psychological healing takes place in additional to physical healing following breast cancer. Arnold also provided no-cost ex-gang tattoo removal to any young person in the Las Vegascommunity wishing to start a gang-free life in the summers of 2007 and 2008.
