Licensed Clinical Aesthetician, Certified Permanent Makeup
Specializing in clinical skin care treatments, Tamara has practiced as a licensed esthetician for over 20 years in Manatee County. She received her certification in Advanced Paramedical esthetics from the Fashion Focus Academy of Facial & Skin care Technology. A few years later, she completed additional training though You’Nique in Clinical Micro-pigmentation techniques. Tamara has established an impressive permanent make-u practice, and a reputation as one of the premier areola tattoo artists for breast cancer reconstruction patients in Manatee and Hillsborough county. In addition, she has successfully completed product knowledge certification classes in the medical-based product lines Skin MedicaTM and ZO Zein Obagi, M.D.TM Certification in Sculpture Laser Body Contouring.
Unlike typical “spa” treatments, Tamara has a clinical approach designed to not only help her patients look their best, but actually “correct” damaged skin, “revitalize” problem skin, and “reverse” the signs of aging. Her process is customized using the latest technology and pharmaceutical-grade product lines. She begins with an initial skin analysis, followed by a treatment customized to the patient’s needs, and ending with patient education regarding appropriate home care, and the importance of daily sunscreen application.
On a personal level, Tamara believes that “health and beauty come from the inside out.” Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by working out and eating healthy. She was an avid fitness competitor in Cross Fit and Body Building, winning several awards from 2009 to 2015. In 2018 she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Went through reconstruction surgery and chemo. She is now a Survivor and wants to help other women through their journey.
Her personal philosophy:
“You only have one skin, and one body, so protect and care for it, because it has to last a lifetime.”
