Port Orange, FL & Rochester, NY permanent makeup
This procedure takes between sixty and ninety minutes. The longest part of the appointment will be the consultation.
Communication is essential to providing you with the best experience possible. A medical form, consent form, and after care information will be completed. Then on to the best part, your brow design.
Your brow design is ultimately up to you, I'm here to help you choose the style that is best for your face shape and bone structure. I will take a close up photo of your brows, start drawing, and measuring. I use a slightly darker color pencil so I get a better contrast. The measuring and duplicating the design of the brows is key in a set of beautiful, matching brows. This dark drawing can throw women off a bit. You have to remember it is just a pattern, not the final result. The shape is all you're looking at, the brow will look so natural compared to the harsh pencil.
Once we agree on the drawing, I will select a color. I usually choose the exact shade of your eyebrow hair color. If there is no hair, I will go with a color that will compliment your skin tone and hair color.
Your tattoo will begin here. It will feel like a tweeze. I will go right through the pencil, making about 15 little lines in the pattern that look identical to natural brow hairs.
After the pattern is complete I will wipe off the remaining pencil and apply a strong anesthetic cream.
I will continue to work on the brow adding hairs and shading until they are complete. I will have you sit up often for additional measuring. You are more then welcome to look at the brows during the procedure and make suggestions. You know your brows best.
After they are complete, they will be darker for a week, until they heal. Then a much softer color gives a natural look.
I will take your photo, and we will schedule your follow up appointment 4-6 weeks later.
The follow-up is a quick check up to see how they have healed. Some additional color and shading may be added at this time to make sure they look their best! This appointment usually takes less then a half hour.

Eyeliner is the second most requested service. There are so many benefits to having your eyeliner applied permanently. The fact that it stays for such a long time is impressive. Unlike brows, which need to be touched up every year, liner lasts much longer. Black eyeliner, for example, can be there for 15 years or more. I personally have black eyeliner and I've had it 20 years, and had it touched up 17 years ago. It looks the same as it did 17 years ago! You do not have to choose black, there are other colors to choose from: charcoal, navy, brown, plum, and moss green. You may also choose the smoky look and get black inside the lash line and smudgy charcoal over it, to give it some dimension. There are lots of choices. I do recommend going natural, not too thick. You can always add to it if you have to for a special occasion.
The first question everyone asks is "does it hurt?" My answer is, it's not painful, but it's not painless. I use a variety of anesthetic creams that really help. You rest with cream on your lids for 30 minutes before we start. During the procedure, I apply it every few minutes to make it as comfortable as possible. Everyone's sensitivity is different. The fact that I'm working on your eye is a sensitive issue and sometimes women who wear contacts have an easier time. It feels strange, but most people say it feels like I'm tweezing, or that it's not painful, but annoying.
The procedure takes between sixty and ninety minutes. After completing the top lid, I rinse the eyes with saline solution, and go on to the bottom lid. The bottom lid is usually done while the eye is open, but If you have trouble with that, I can do it closed as well.
Swelling is usually the next question. The average person has a little swelling and soreness the first day. Ice helps, and is recommended for the first day. The next morning is usually when the swelling is present. It looks like you have cried the night before, the top lid is swollen. You can use an ice pack, or even ice cubes in a baggie. It usually goes away quickly. Every so often I have someone who is super sensitive and the swelling can last 48 hours. This person usually knows that she is this way and schedules the appointment on a Friday, or a day that she has nothing to do for a couple days.
I normally follow the natural lash line to create the liner. I do not go far into the inner corner, or make any wings. As you age, those wings could become commas! Again, I prefer a very natural look.
