Dema-Technician/earn $250 an hour (palm springs/palm desert)

Beware of this woman and her fake ads below! Her current name is GUADALUPE PONTE, but she has several aliases. She is a fraud and a crook, and you will NEVER earn a dime from anything she claims to teach! All you need to do to prove it is a search of Riverside County lawsuits. There you will find her history-she's been sued at least 30 times, including by a friend for a loan she never repaid. She's filed for bankruptcy at least 3 times and never pays for her leased vehicles, registrations or outstanding tickets. She has countless bench warrants for her crimes, which is why she keeps changing her identity!

You will pay thousands of dollars just to "learn" how to TATTOO, then she will claim the certificate that she promises you can't be had for another 6 months! But what's worse is you don't need a certificate to TATTOO in CA! The "kit" she includes can be purchased for $99 online. You can teach yourself on a rubber placemat, save thousands of dollars and months of wasted time and avoid ever meeting this malevolent con artist. Her "knowledge" is worthless, but she will make you pay thousands, and then she says she'll give you the answers anyway! She also offers to take the Health Dept. (blood pathogens) exam with you by sitting by the computer and giving you the answers!

She uses lidocaine, a controlled substance she is not allowed to use, then tells patients to keep it a secret as she tells them to buy it in Mexico, or that she will have her doctor boyfriend get it, on the patients-if she can ever find it! She loses everything and bitches at the onset of every class because something is missing. She calls her employees and bitches at them for an hour while everyone has to wait for this incompetent loser to set the petrified "students" loose on poor Mexican women who go to her office to get permanent makeup done for free.

Lidocaine is not to be used by anyone who is not a licensed physician, she gets it from some doctor she is having sex with. And her students know because that is what she talks about during her "classes." She also talks about how much weight she's gained and how she needs to lose it in order to get her doctor boyfriend to find her attractive. NOT useful information for anyone, but you must feign an interest in this egomaniac at all times!

She has a non-profit, scar-treatment center, scars gone or scars for freedom that hasn't operated legally in years and yet she gets self-gratification every time she draws a tiny bit of attention to her "charity work." She claims she does it instead of advertising and to bring in clients, and she certainly never does any scar revision on veterans!

She's an overweight, insecure, youth chasing narcissist. Students must listen to her announce the latest round of botox, fillers or peels she has done constantly. But no matter how much revision she does on her faade, inside she is an ugly, fat, dirty, (just look at her face, hair, clothes and office), thief who steals from everyone she meets. She has no morals or decency; she's a malignant, lying scam-artist.

Her "best" student is a filthy woman named Bonnie who wears a pink matted wig and stinks from her inability to shower or wash the ridiculous pink rug on her head. Bonnie can't figure out how to TATTOO eyebrows on the victims Guadalupe's students practice on: poor Mexican women from Coachella Valley. Guadalupe never helps students actually learn how to TATTOO on people, she insists they learn by practicing on them, and it shows. Bonnie TATTOOS eyebrows in the wrong place, then Guadalupe mocks the poor Mexican patients by saying, "What are they going to do, sue us? They don't even have green cards!" Bonnie is a disaster and liar. She destroys women's faces with her incompetence and Guadalupe doesn't give a d**n about any of the mistakes made on these poor women who have to live with crooked, pink eyebrows, (due to red ink used on their eyebrows!) scribbled lip liner and horrid blue eyeliner.

Plenty of people have been robbed by this con artist. Just ask her buddy, Jackie Devereaux at (888)837-0470, an unemployed ex-entertainment lawyer who spills out over the chair in Guadalupe's office because she is another woman who over indulges in anything she can consume. She gets paid nothing but is so sad and lonely she hangs on to Guadalupe for any activity in her vacuous life. And the lawsuits are a constant!

Do yourselves a favor and contact any tattoo parlor or permanent makeup instructor and ask them how you can learn to TATTOO without destroying trusting women's faces. Practicing on a frozen pig's foot and human beings doesn't cut it.

Questionable petition

AUTHOR: anon - (USA)

My name is listed in this petition and I have absolutely no knowledge of this incident.  I have never heard of the company mentioned and never signed any petition.  I have to assume this is a false report and will share this on my facebook page so others can respond as well.

AUTHOR: Jackie Devereaux - (USA)


The real story.

I just finished having a micro-dermabrasion and a radio frequency treatment to my face and neck at the Ponte Medi Spa, and the facialist was FANTASTIC! I highly recommend this place for any facial and body treatments. Why? Because I've had dozens of face and body treatments here since 2008, and can honestly say, they've improved my appearance immensely. Even family and close friends notice the difference. My sister from Idaho said: "Your skin looks great. What are you doing?" I told her about Ponte Medi Spa and now she's going for her own treatments whenever she's in town visiting me.

How did the Ponte Medi Spa improve my appearance? By utilizing modern aesthetic methods including chemical peels, micro-dermabrasion, and radio frequency, which reduced the fine lines, wrinkles, diminishing the sagging and fading skin of my face. They also have improved the overall youthful appearance of my skin.

While I'm 60 years old today, most people think I'm 45. These treatments allowed me to take back those 15 years, and slow down the aging process of my skin. All treatments including the facial and body treatments, are non-invasive, and painless. They are performed in a clean, crisp and modern medi-spa office with attention given to individual issues, such as, aging, brown spots, sagging skin, and dark circles, etc. It depends on what your skin needs.

Anyone saying anything different to this must have other issues going on, because I can tell you for a fact since I've been going here since 2008. I know the truth. Don't listen to naysayers who have an agenda. Try it out for yourself and see. There are lots of discounts and specials offered every month that fits anyone's budget. Give a try. You've got only years to peel away.

Written Sincerely,
Jackie Devereaux
Journalist/Screenwriter/Animal Lover

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Susan Poe not an ex-employee

AUTHOR: chrisfarr - (USA)

Susan Poe was not an ex-employee of Scar Treatment Center of the Desert and this could be easily verified. This is just another lie. We are simply just noting that we have never heard of this woman and it is another obvious fabrication.

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Petition is false, Guadalupe has a stalker

AUTHOR: chrisfarr - (USA)

The below petition regarding Guadalupe Ponte is completely false. This posted information is ludicrous and even worse contains information that was stolen from Guadalupe’s Facebook page. Names on this list include her personal friends and family. We believe that this is a case of someone stalking Guadalupe Ponte.

Respond to this report!

#6 UPDATE Employee ..inside information


AUTHOR: Jackie Devereaux - (USA)

You used my name without my permission, and said untrue things using my name to back up your B.S. Rip Off story. I am consulting an attorney to serve you, MS. EVA VOORHEES OR AUSTINI ( or whatever name you use now) with a Cease and Desist Order. Never use my name again in your baloney-filled Rip Off Reports. You first used my name, Jackie Devereaux, erronously when you said I was a fat, lawyer. I am neither overweight nor a lawyer. Not that being overweight should have anythging to do with anything. But your low class flings you to throw stones at that level. You must be thinking of someone else, but because you didn't do your homework and have all your facts WRONG, you picked the wrong Jackie. So that's two times you used my name WRONG. This time, you're in big trouble becase you not only lied and used my name to back up your FALSE claim, MS VORHEES you have defamed my name, and when we find you, and we will, you will be served with a number of complaints. So you'd better find a rock big and far away to hide under, because now you've got me coming after yoU And you dont' even know who I am! I am your worst nightmare. You have just created a monster!

This report was not signed by me or any of the other "signees" on the report.  These are the names of Facebook friends.  Hmmnmm  Is it legal to go in to someone's Facebook account and falsely sign a document full of lies without our knowledge?  My name and the others were STOLEN off of Guadalupe Ponte's personal Facebook.  How dare you use my name without my knowledge, and attack Guadalupe Ponte.  Have you nothing better to do than stalk Guadalupe Ponte and try to stain her name?  Shame on you!

Community responds! Incriminating evidentiary petition against Guadalupe Ponte Martinez comes to light!

AUTHOR: JackieB - ()

Recently uncovered! An incriminating petition circulating in The Palm Desert-Palm Springs-Coachella Valley-Riverside County-Los Angeles and Orange County communities, etc.

By signing this petition we realize we will go on public record that we the undersigned believe Guadalupe Ponte-Martinez to be a criminal con-artist and thief. We would recommend and warn those considering taking her tattoo classes and any classes she offers to reconsider and distance yourself from this woman because she is only interested in profiting off the public with no concern for them or their losses. Victims will never learn anything from this swindler. She’ll drain their bank accounts of thousands of dollars. Guadalupe Ponte sells unsuspecting victims a high-priced derma-brasion certification class while failing to realize informed students can obtain the limited information she has to offer on their own and without any need from the state for any certification what-so-ever. She’s a scam-artist! Ponte should be and deserves to be put out of business. Check with the Chamber of Commerce, the Better Business Bureau and the other local schools offering the same classes in the Palm Dessert area, then take your money and run. Guadalupe Ponte is a predator and parasite and needs to be stopped from preying on trusting victims to feed her greed for her narcissistic self-serving gain.

Testimonials from former studens who have taken the course

AUTHOR: chrisfarr - ()

The below report has no credibility what so ever. This person is not known to the Scar

Treatment and Recovery Center nor have any of her claims been validated. It is simply

nonsensical slander. We offer the following testimonials from people who have actually taken

the course:

To Whom It May Concern,

I took Guadalupe Ponte’s permanent makeup and scar revision seminar in 2011. I am a police

officer and did not observe any municipal or criminal violations. I would not have participated

in and would have reported any such violations. I received excellent training.

Guadalupe Ponte:


I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I enjoy coming into the Scar

Treatment Center.

I have been coming into your facility for some time now and want you to know that I feel you

have trained all of your girls exceptionally well.  Each time I visit, it has been a wonderful

experience. The technicians you have trained are always friendly and well trained in each and

every machine that you have.  Whether, the technician is newly trained or has been working with

you for some time, I have always been pleased with the results of the treatments they


I will continue to come into the Scar Treatment Center for a long time to come.

Thanks for helping to keep me young

To Whom It May Concern:

I became acquainted with Guadalupe Ponte over fifteen years ago in a professional manner when I

worked for the Ritz Carlton in Rancho Mirage by offering her corporate hotel rates for her

clients who flew in from other states to obtain her services.

I admired Ms.Ponte her for dedication, professionalism, expertise and compassion. Several years

ago I made a decision to change careers .After much research I came to the conclusion that no

other school offered the comprehensive training I could get from Ms. Ponte. 

I chose Ms. Ponte's school even though it was over 120 miles each way from my home for various


Ms. Ponte is one of the few people licensed by the State of California Department of Consumer

Affairs as an instructor of micro-pigmentation and permanent make up. Her experience in the

field and her sterling reputation. At a certain point she encourages her student to come into

her procedure room to observe. Finally, she will allow students to assist. Ms. Ponte is

constantly preparing each and every student for them to be able to be confident permanent

makeup artists. She offers a free clinic for the community every Thursday night, which has been

doing for many years, and allows her students to come any or every Thursday night to perfect

their skills in permanent make up. Students are welcome
 to come as long as they chose. There is never a time limit. I personally have been attending

her Thursday night clinic on and off for approximately two years and am always welcomed. During

the Thursday night clinic I have personally worked with Julie and Eva on at least two

occasions. Eva commented on how wonderful it was to get the on hands experience and worked with

me on clients. Julie was doing another procedure at the same time.

Ms. Ponte has a sterling reputation which has not gone unnoticed. The Mayor of Palm Desert has

proclaimed Sept. 15 Guadalupe Ponte Day. The Aqua Caliente Mission Indians declared her charity

of their choice of 2012. President Obama has written a letter thanking her for her

contributions of our Soldiers. The White House has honored her with a CALL TO SEVICEAWARD AND

METAL.Due to the confidence and training I have received from Ms. Ponte I have opened by own

permanent makeup business in Laguna Beach.

Please contact me if I can answer any questions.

Warm regards,


Janice Brown

To Whom It May Concern,


I started my course at The Scar Treatment Center in June of 2012 and completed my studies late

August of 2012. My experience was amazing and straight forward. Guadalupe is flexible in all

her teachings. As Students we have the opportunity to participate in an internship where we get

to watch as she and her staff work with clients. In that I found that it opened my eyes to more

than what we read and practice in the course. This course has changed my life forever. I have

and would continue to recommend the course to others.

More incriminating evidence discovered on Guadalupe Ponte

AUTHOR: jazgrl - ()

Oh burn! Slow day at my new job that I didn’t have to lose thousands to get certified to do. decided to look online to review Ponte’s LOST court cases. She really has been sued at least 25 times. I stopped counting after a while. Thanks mom for still guiding me in the right direction. I miss her every day but I know she’s proud that I can see people for who they are and not who they pretend to be so as not to get duped by con artists like the other students were. If anyone wants evidence we can go take pictures for them. I have lots of friend here in Palm Springs to help. We stick together and care about people and would all be willing to get information and evidence. A great bunch of friends that are getting me through my shock of losing my mom. I just knew there was something dishonest with Ponte's story, she creeped me out. Maybe for one because she won’t talk over the phone about her course but makes people go in to her office and meet face to face in a private room alone with her. She also has no photographs of actual clients anywhere, she steals copyrighted photographs off the internet for her ads. No actual clients are used anywhere she advertises and she doesn’t have a portfolio of her work to show potential students. Did I mention I had great friends? And my father is a retired police officer. Seriously, what is she hiding? Ponte is a total sleaze IMO. My beloved mom died in a car accident by someone who also was driving under the influence like Ponte and without registration. All in the court records.

Now I feel personally obligated to help others see what a parasite Ponte is. Get her off the streets and out of business or she could take more than your money, she could kill you or a loved one! Her son was also incarcerated for dealing drugs. She’s really good about trying to defame people with threats and public records, all but when it comes to hers and her families. Amazing what you can access if your dad was a cop. In fact her entire family has been involved in some sort of criminal activity. Businesses in the same field have nothing kind to say about her at all. She is truly a deeply disliked person and considered lowly trailer trash in the Palm Desert business community. I love the article she posted as a rebuttal. She so clearly wrote it herself because it’s not a real article. Her spelling is atrocious and pathetic. Spell checker is a very useful tool Ponte. It makes her sound and look even more like an idiot when she opens her mouth or attempts to write! Links to her victims so called history lead to internal server errors or no full names in the so called incriminating evidence. They are also non working email addresses. I've tried to contact them myself. So it would seem her rebuttal evidence is at best falsified and fictional. And her defense to her good charactar, yes, that’s how it was spelled, is some archaic youtube video that shows nothing demonstrating anything she does. Her good character rebuttal letter? Doesn’t open to anything! Testimonials? Nada! How can a self proclaimed 50 something year old reputable business woman be so stupid? Good luck with her email address; it’s another dead link. And this? is a commercial paid for by the people who appear in it. In other words, it’s advertising she bought, the interviewer is just a paid actor.

Don't waste your money!

AUTHOR: jazgrl - ()

This is so accurate and telling. It’s the nature of the accused when they are guilty. When someone has purged by airing their grievances of dissatisfaction, which would signal they have moved on with their losses, financial and emotional, these people mock the accusers for not continuing to do what? Keep on complaining? 

I’ve spoken to the office and tried to sign up for a course, but to be truthful, after reading this report I wasn’t expecting much, and I got less than that in the responses to my questions.
Anyone can chastise their accusers, what else is there to do but deny to save your lowly reputation? But if anyone accuses a business of wrongdoing and unethical practices, that’s when I take notice. I did, I called them and after my experience I agree with the reporters: Guadalupe Ponte is indeed a fradulent liar and a scammer.
My mother, God rest her soul, died recently and left me some money. (I didn’t know what I wanted to pursue career-wise, I was pretty lost considering she always guided me in my life. I’m only 28. I suppose that may seem old to some of you, but it took me a long time to become comfortable with my sexuality, so I may be a slow-starter.)
I looked into this tattoo business that Scar Revision-Treatment Center offers. thought this might be a fruitful career but suffice it to say, after reading this report and seeing the responses of the business owners they seemed beyond childish and unprofessional.
I saw the place where Miss Ponte runs her business on the down-low, I walked in and said I was lost, but my goal was to see for myself if it was as unhygienic as I had heard. It is beyond filthy. Overall what I saw is a sketchy front office, dirty and empty. I got the feeling I was in the reception room of a backdoor clinic in Mexico.
I don’t have first hand knowledge of being a student of Guadalupe Ponte’s, but I am grateful that I read this review and checked out the school myself because it is clearly a sham. 
Save yourself and your money gurls and boyz, this place is a set-up for a rip-off.

Guadalupe Ponte Liabeled

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

 My name is Guadalupe Ponte. I am a licenced (City of Palm Desert #11-00051841, County of Riverside Environmental Health Department #FA0028318), insured, reputable business woman.I have been a state certified instructor and a working dermagraphic specialist for the last 18 years. I have a client base of 8,500 and a large group (over 1 hundred) of sucessful, working, professional dermagraphic specialists, that I have trained. I also donate my time to charity through Scars to Freedom, a 501(c)3 non-profit. I help wounded war veterans with scar revision, completely free of charge.

This report, though written anonymously, has clearly been penned by Shelly Daily, Eva Voorhees, and Julie Carlson. These three women were incompetent, disgruntaled, and kisturbed. They took my class and though completing it , decided to drop out right before graduation and certification.

These women have DUI's and arrest records.They were disruptive, unqualified, negative, and looking for someone to blame for their life problems.

30 days prior to this devastating report, these 3 students Shelly Daily, Eva Voorhees, and Julie Carlson completed my training, with all equipment included, and gained knowledge of my practice. They proceed to attack me and sued in Small Claims Court for a refund. They lost! The court found in my favor. This is public knowledge.Feel free to look it up. First to loose Eva Voorhees.... second to loose Shelly Daily....and Julie Carlson, who attended all court dates did not proceed further due to the lack of meritof their claims and her DUI record. This is all public knowledge.

Prior to these horrible lies being said about me, I  had a perfect record. My services to the community have helped a great many people with scar revision. I have help many students achieve a new and sucessful career. Our charity has helped over 50 soldiers/veterans with their war wounds.

I am deeply hurt that these three viscous women would say such lies about me with out any facts or backup. We only knew each other for 6 weeks. I can only hope that anyone who reads anything about me will go to my three websites(,, and form their own opinions about me and my business. I hope anyone reading this will want to help Scars to Freedom and stop defaming and misjudging me. I have spent 20 years of hard work helping others. That's a fact.

Thank you.
