Leading Permanent Cosmetics Genius Karen Betts Joins Forces with The Katie Piper Foundation

Karen Betts, the No.1 permanent cosmetics beautician in the UK, is delighted to announce a new collaboration with The Katie Piper Foundation which will see her become their official and exclusive permanent cosmetics consultant for 2012.

Katie Piper and her Foundation are well known in the UK for their charitable work which aims to make life easier for people living with burns and scars. Katie’s ambition is to help others in their quest to feel confident again in spite of their scars; and strives to recommend and provide a network of the best treatments and beauticians available for fellow sufferers. Karen Betts is one of the first in this growing network for the Foundation.  Karen has personally worked with Katie Piper as she recovered from an acid attack in 2008 and, over a twelve month process, recreated Katie’s lips, brows and eye definition. This personal and professional relationship developed from then and resulted in Karen offering her expert skills and services in four clinic locations countrywide – including London’s prestigious Harley Street - to help and hopefully improve the lives of people living with facial disfigurements.

Karen Betts is renowned across the world for her expertise in permanent cosmetics and after progressing into medical tattooing she became officially BUPA registered in 2006. After individuals have experienced physically deforming conditions in their lives, Karen can literally tattoo back on their confidence to the affected areas. It is testament to Karen’s skills to be officially affiliated which such a reputable charity as The Katie Piper Foundation.
Karen’s work is unprecedented in both the beauty and medical sector - she has worked incredibly hard to build her own business empire – Nouveau Beauty Group - which through her Nouveau Contour Permanent Cosmetics Training Academies have now trained thousands of other individuals in her specialized permanent cosmetics skills.

Karen Betts says: “When I first met Katie, as many people are, I was bowled over by her drive and determination to help other survivors have the same opportunities that she has had. The Katie Piper Foundation is a fantastic charity and I’m delighted that we can help and I hope this collaboration will be a success and we can help as many people as possible to continue the relationship well beyond 2012.”

Katie Piper says: “I’m so pleased that Karen has offered her expertise to help other survivors feel more confident about themselves.  She has a great passion and determination to help change people’s lives and I’m delighted that she’s able to help the Foundation.”
