Check Out Keyla Escobar’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Keyla Escobar.

Hi Keyla, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I am an Emergency Room Registered Nurse currently attending the University of South Florida where I am completing my master’s in nursing. I’ve always had a passion for esthetics as I worked as a cosmetologist for many years prior to practicing medicine. I discovered paramedical and cosmetic permanent makeup and became obsessed and fascinated with the idea of helping others through permanent makeup. My specialty is stretch mark and scar camouflage using skin tone colored pigments and camouflaging the skins imperfection through a tattooing technique. This is so life-changing to many as it conceals the memories of traumatic scars or simply skin imperfections that make people self-conscious.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Paramedical tattooing is a new technique that started in Brazil in 2016 and in recent years has become more popular in the U.S. Not many people know it exists, being that it’s a relatively new concept, it makes it a little challenging to promote because it hasn’t been around as long as other esthetic services. I have been blessed with the support of my family that continues encouraging me to follow my passion and change lives through paramedical tattooing.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I specialize in Medical Scar Camouflage Tattooing. It is the art of tattooing flesh-tone pigments into the skin or scar to blend, minimize, and conceal discolorations. This technique originated in Brazil in 2016. It is a subset of permanent cosmetics known as Medical or Paramedical Tattooing. I also offer areola re-pigmentation and 3D nipple tattoos. Nipple tattoos can make both women and men who have undergone breast surgery look and feel better about their appearance. After reconstructive surgery, 3D nipple tattooing techniques “create” a natural-looking breast. Scars from augmentation or reduction procedures can be hidden with a camouflage tattoo, as well.

I’m most proud of being able to use my services to help boost the self-confidence of my clients. It’s so fulfilling to see how my work can have such a profound effect on their lives. Knowing that I’m making a difference in people’s lives, no matter how major or minor the procedure, makes it all worth it. What sets me apart is I have years of experience in both the beauty industry and the medical field. I am also very proud of representing my Latin American community. My father is from Chile and my mother is from Costa Rica. I am bilingual and here to serve my local Central Florida community and anyone willing to come visit in need of these services.

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
What I love about Orlando is the diversity of tourists visiting from all over the world.
