The Permanent Cosmetic Studio was established by Carmella Gibellino-Schultz in 1999 in West Chester, PA. Coming from the beauty industry with a large following, it was a natural progression for Carmella to shift her focus to this more specific niche.

Now, nearly 20 years later and performing procedures on over 1,800 happy clients, The Permanent Cosmetic Studio is highly sought after both locally and nationally for permanent cosmetic solutions.

The Studio

Our modern, yet cozy studio is located in a professional office park just a turn off of Route 1, Baltimore Pike in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania—not far from the Brandywine River Museum. You will find a reception area and three state-of-the-art procedure rooms that resemble modern dental offices, but with a comfy spa environment. Implements used in all procedures are NEW AND STERILE. Extreme care is taken for your sanitation and safety, as well as your comfort and peace of mind. Click here for directions.
