Marie takes extreme pride in evaluating each individual's skin and will explain what is the best procedure for them as it relates to a person’s anatomy, skin integrity, lifestyle, medications, illness, amount of hair there or when there is no hair at all. For example, for a beautiful new set of eyebrows, many factors need to be taken into consideration. Factors to be assessed are one’s skin integrity, lifestyle, medications, age, illnesses, etc. Again, the goal is to give you the best look, the best results and the most longevity for your new brows.
The trend of Microblading (manual tattooed eyebrow) was once very popular and now sometimes a machine will be utilized as well. Sometimes a machine is needed to reinforce or shade in microbladed brows as it causes less trauma to the skin than a microblade. For this reason, not everyone can be microbladed as that modality may not offer the best results for everyone’s skin. Sometimes one will need a Powdered Brow (Shaded Brow) because the fragile skin cannot be microbladed. You will hear the term Ombré Brows, which is done by a machine, where the beginning of the brow is not as dark as the tail of the brow. Blade & Shade is when both manual tool and machine is used. You will also hear the term Fluffy Brows and that is when the hair strokes are whispy and light. The way one heals will determine how clear their hair strokes remain.
Please keep in mind that everyone can have beautiful new brows but the
techniques used on each individual has to be specific to them.
Permanent Cosmetics or “permanent makeup” (Micropigmentation), Microblading & Tattooing is a procedure where color is implanted in the skin to enhance or restore skin color or simulate hair. The look is natural and is tailored for each individual’s need. Both men and women will be amazed how their self-esteem and confidence will be restored in just one visit.
Here are the reasons to consider Micropigmentation:
Busy hectic lifestyle with little time or no time to fuss
Active outdoor or exercise activities
Thinning or loss of hair (alopecia) due to aging, tweezing or chemotherapy
Visual impairments or dexterity difficulties making it hard to apply makeup
Allergies, sensitivities and contact wearers
Post surgical scaring (breasts) or hairline (brows and scalp)
Cleft lip or uneven lips
Using both artistry and medical techniques, be rest assured that all procedures performed are done under the strictest safety standards medically recommended and only disposable tools, equipment and pigments are used. Topical anesthetics are available to facilitate comfort during your procedure. Pre-procedure information is provided during your consultation and after care instructions and supplies are given to promote a speedy recovery.
Eyebrows - Marie Jenkinson, RN (formerly Marie Barbuto), is a skilled practitioner and Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, who uses the latest techniques to create natural looking eyebrows. Microblading (also known as eyebrow embroidery, feathering, etching) is a hair stroke technique. It actually looks as if you have grown the hair back. We also use various other techniques such as shading, powder, or ombre to give a softer natural look.
People suffering from hair loss, whether a medical issue (chemotherapy treatment) or any other condition that causes hair loss (aging process) will benefit greatly from eyebrow tattooing. For those who simply want their eyebrows enhanced (more arched, made thicker or longer) to set the framework of your face, you will love your new look!
All procedures are done in the strictest, cleanest environment. Topical anesthetics are used to insure comfort during the procedure, the color is created specifically for you. Post care instructions are thoroughly explained and home care supplies are given. Initially, the brows will appear darker but will fade a little in a few weeks. The results can last anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on factors such as skin type, sun exposure, the chemicals used in your creams and beauty products which can possibly fade the brow pigment.
So what are you waiting for? If you have read this far, you are looking to have
beautiful natural looking brows and now you can!
Lash Enhancement - Imagine having the look of very full and lush lashes. Pigment is applied at the base and in between the lash line to give the appearance thickness to the lashes. This is a very subtle application with a very noticeable difference. The real beauty is – it never comes off!
Eyeliner - Eyeliner can be applied in many different ways, from a soft natural enhancement to a more dramatic and defined line. Have it applied perfectly and permanently and never have to put on eyeliner again. Great for those who have dry eyes, allergies, hay fever, contact wearers, visual impairments, unsteady hands or people on the go!
Lip Liner - Permanent lip liner is the perfect solution for correcting uneven lips, adding fullness or giving the mouth more definition. As age sets in, lips reduce in size and with lip tattooing they will appear fuller which will give a more youthful appearance. It also minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.
Full Lip Color - If you would like to forget about putting on lipstick all together, then full lip color can be applied in a natural hue, blush, tinted or a more vivid color. Imagine, no more smudging, smearing or bleeding of color.
Beauty Mark- People have many personal reasons for enhancing beauty marks. In the designated area, a small, naturally colored mark is tattooed to replicate the look of a beauty mark.
