Kara offers 3-D Areola Pigmentation/Restoration. This is a tattooing service for anyone wanting to reshape or recolor their areola. Ideal for Transgender and MTF clients, those who have endured cancer or any other breast surgeries and unfortunately lost part of or all of their areola and nipples or now have misshapen areola from the process.

Lip blushing is a form of semi-permanent makeup. It is a cosmetic tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip color, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness.
• Lip Blush Healing Day by Day
Always wake up to Eyeliner perfectly on your eyes! No smearing, no sweating it off, and no having to use steady hands each morning to put it on.
Clients LOVE this alternative tattooing technique for enhancing and reshaping the appearance of the eyebrows, in which semi-permanent pigment is scratched into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, using a hand tool. Kara emphasizes that her microblading technique results in very natural brow strokes and recommends a 2-part application.
Most clients will want to allow 6 weeks of heal time after the initial application before scheduling their follow-up appointment to address adding any hairstrokes, especially if you are still using brow make-up to get your desired look.
Optional Powdered Brow
In this method you use one color to fill in the brows completely. Optional follow up one month later to add hairstroke (microblading) on top for a beautiful effect. Please schedule a free permanent make-up consultation before booking this service.
All permanent cosmetic procedures are a multi-session process. You are required to come back for at least one touch-up visit before it can be determined that your work is complete – this appointment is included in your price. Touch-up visits are scheduled at 6 week intervals or longer.
Be prepared for the initial color intensity of your procedure to be significantly sharper, brighter, or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. It will take time for this transition based upon how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
Proper care following your procedure is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness of color is to be expected. The purpose of the touch-up visit is to correct any color or shape issues. Please review the following directions and refer to them as necessary. If during your healing process you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
Day 1-2: What you see is about 20-60% darker, bolder, and more solid than what your healed result will present. There may be minimal swelling; however as the eyebrow area typically does not retain much fluid, swelling will be limited. The top layers of skin will begin to shed about day 3-5 and you will see a loss of color. This is normal.
Day 3: Your eyebrows may begin to itch and the pigment may appear somewhat raised. DON’T SCRATCH THEM!
Day 4-6: Your skin is now in rapidly exfoliating and if left alone, will shed evenly. The color under the skin will continue to appear light until the epidermis becomes more transparent.
Day 30-40: Your eyebrows have had a full cycle of cellular regeneration in which the tattoo has now become part of the dermis, seen under the epidermis. If you are not 100% happy, call and come in for your touch-up.
Day of: This can vary from slightly puffy to swollen, heavy lids; light sensitive and possibly bloodshot eyes. It’s advisable to sleep in an elevated position to help reduce swelling at night.
Day 1: Eyes will be swollen and perhaps a bit ‘crusty’ upon waking. The swelling will reduce after being in an upright position and from blinking and increased circulation to the area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion, and crying.
Day 2: Eyes will be less swollen, but will feel tight. The lash area will feel sore if touched.
Day 3-4: The top layer of skin will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation. DO NOT PICK– you will pull pigment out and end up with uneven color. Blinking helps eliminate the small pieces of pigment and epidermis that has detached. It is important not to pick at it or rub the eyes.
Day 7-9: All shedding should be complete. You are safe to put your face back in the shower spray. During this time, the tattoo may appear to have vanished, this is a normal part of the healing process, and the pigment will re-emerge.
10 Pigment, if it faded, should have returned. What you see now is very close to the healed result. If it is not as you like, please wait the final three weeks and return for a touch-up procedure.
NOTE: The outcome of permanent cosmetic procedures is dictated by the canvas (your skin). The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Very oily, dry, or sun damaged skin can be very difficult to achieve a beautiful even result. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear.
The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetics procedures.
