What is Permanent
Also known as micropigmentation, permanent makeup, and cosmetic tattooing, the procedure consist of depositing pigment into the dermis in order to enhance features. This procedure is commonly used to enhance lip color and shape, eyebrow shape, color, and thickness, and give eyelashes a full look. Though permanent make-up has been around many years it has recently become popular due to the more Natural look that can be achieved.
Would I benefit from Permanent Makeup?
Do you re-apply your make-up throughout the day?
Do you deal with eyeliner smearing?
Are your eyebrows thinning?
Are you seeing your lipstick spread into those fine lines?
Do you have problems seeing to apply your make-up?
Have your hands become unsteady?
Is your lifestyle active or busy? (limited time)
Do you spend a lot of time outdoors, in the water, boating, etc?
If you answered YES to any of these then you would benefit from Permanent Cosmetics.
What to look for in a Permanent Cosmetic Artist
Like everything in the world not all Artist are equal. It is at the discretion of each Artist to decide the amount of education and training they receive. In the State of Florida the laws allow an Artist/Technician to enter into this line of work with no official training or experience. This is where it is the consumers responsibility to do their due diligence. If an Artist/Technician has had training they should be able to provide you with their credentials. Ask to see photos or videos of their work, ask to speak to past clients, read their reviews, most importantly interview them. I say this all the time “This is Your Face ” and you cannot buy a long sleeve shirt to cover up a bad cosmetic tattoo on your face.
My eyebrows were almost nonexistent after going through chemo. I hated drawing them in but I was terrified to try microblading. I absolutely love them! I was really nervous about the outcome, but I couldn’t be happier. I wanted a natural look and Katy did an amazing job!!! She was meticulous with measuring and making sure the color and shape were exactly what I wanted. They turned out absolutely perfect! I cannot thank her enough for doing such a wonderful job! Highly recommended!!!
Katy is an amazing artist! At 58 I was tired of having no eyebrows or lips and decided to remedy that. I had long conversations with Katy, told her my concerns and what I wanted. Her suggestions were knowledgeable, and exactly what I wanted. So I booked my appointments. I had her give me brows, lash enhancements, and lips in my natural colors, dark ash blonde and pale mauve. Her technique is beautiful, her hands light, and I love what she’s done for me so much. And I haven’t even had my touchups yet!!
Katy is not only knowledgeable, but also very personable and caring. She took a great deal of time to explain the procedure and answer all of my many questions. Her shop is quite beautiful and extremely clean as well as welcoming. I’d highly recommend scheduling an appointment with her soon, because she’s going to be very busy in the near future!
RUBY, THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Modern Faces was great! Katy did an amazing job on my eyebrows, I honestly couldn’t be any happier. I have very blond eyebrows so having them done permanently really saves time because I’ve always had to color them in to have them show. I took my normal eyebrow pencil in to try to match the color and Katy was so patient and mixed colors until we found one that matched. Katy took her time measuring and getting the shape right.
My experience at Modern faces was wonderful! The atmosphere is beautiful, clean and welcoming. I wasn’t sure what to expect and was a little nervous at first but Katy’s knowledge made me feel like I was in great hands! Looking forward to my fill! I love my brows and how I look put together without any effort! I highly recommend Modern Faces! Katy is absolutely amazing!

“Thank you, Katy, for my amazing permanent eyebrows & eyeliner. She worked magic to “correct” previous work I had done in early March. Katy’s attention to detail is unmatched. If you’ve been thinking about it, you no longer need to hesitate. These pictures were taken immediately after the appointment..”
“This was an awesome experience. Katy is so knowledgeable. She explained everything about all of her services & answered all my questions. She had pictures of clients before & after. I am so happy with my eyebrows & eyelashes & I am definitely going back for more of her services. She is truly an artist.”

Day of Procedure: You will need to block out a 2-3 hour window. Come into the studio with no makeup on. Bring a picture of your-self with your make up on and possibly a photo of your favorite brow.

Once we are completed we will discuss your post care and you will be given post care instructions with ointment to be applied at home.
Follow Up Appointment: This will occur 4-6 weeks after your procedure. At this time we will determine if you need a touch up and if so, will touch them up at this time.
Microblading vs. Permanent Make-Up
What Everyone Should Know
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a technique where needles are drug across the skin, creating a fine cut where pigment can be placed in the skin. When this cut heals, if done correctly, it creates a thin, crisp line that mimics the natural look and texture of hair. Due to the nature of pigment insertion, a lot of pigment cannot be forced into the skin, leading to a shorter lifespan than more traditional tattooing methods. On average, 6–18 months.
WHAT ARE Permanent Makeup EYEBROWS?
This is similar to tattooing methods involving the insertion of a needle or needles into the skin in a tapping motion. This can be done either by hand or machine. You can achieve the same affects as Microblading with longer lasting results and less trauma to the skin. This movement forces a lot of pigment into the skin, causing the pigment to last 2-3 years.
WHICH TECHNIQUE IS BEST FOR YOU?
You may know what you like or, better said, what you think you like, but is it the best option for YOU? First and foremost, a skilled technician will let you know if your skin even allows for some of these techniques to be an option. Very thin, easy-to-tear, or brittle skin, for example, will not be able to heal well from the trauma of Microblading. This results in a complete fading of the tattoo at best or unsightly blotching or smudging of the tattoo with possible scarring at worst.
Someone who likes dark, full brows, and fills them in everyday, probably won’t be satisfied by Microblading. Even once the area heals, they may find themselves using their make-up over perfectly shaped brows, just because they are not full enough. Microblading will not create a completely filled look; it will add hairs and shape, but not fill.
