WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a process which is similar to pigment implantation, but without using pigments (ink). A “dry needle” is directed through the center of crevices (wrinkles) or acne scars to draw a light bloodline. As the brain recognizes trauma to that area, it responds by generating collagen and elastin directing it to the affected area. We also skim the entire surface of you face or neck to help diminish fine lines.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling or Skin needling, also known as (CRT) Collagen Rejuvenation Therapy is a revolutionary new way of reducing wrinkles and tightening aging skin through stimulating the production of new collagen under the skin. This is a wonderful alternative to laser re-surfacing and chemical peels in that the epidermis – the protective outer layer of your skin – is not destroyed in the process as it is with these other procedures, thereby avoiding such very real potential problems as hyperpigmented (dark) marks on the skin, persistent redness and sun sensitivity.
The downtime is much shorter than with these other alternatives, usually only 24 hours to 2 days before you can go out with any remaining evidence of the procedure covered by makeup.
Contrast that with the typical weeks or even months before your appearance returns to normal when you have laser re-surfacing or chemical peels. A serum is used specific to your skin type. The time it takes is dependent on how much of your face you would like to do.
As with other procedures, I use topical anesthetics which, depending on the area of microneedling and your individual comfort level, make the procedure almost discomfort free. I divide the face in to 3 main areas – the mouth and chin area, the eye area and the forehead. Each area typically takes about 1/2 hr to 45 min to needle. If you have extensive wrinkling, it could take up to two hours to accomplish. Each area is priced independently (see Pricing page), or if you opt to have a full face needling the price is reduced. And the best part is that it’s much less expensive than these other procedures! Certainly, an important consideration to most of us!!
WHAT IS SCAR RELAXATION?
Scar Relaxation is a process that releases fibrous bands of scar tissue from the patient’s affected area. This procedure was discovered in 1988. Scar Relaxation is the application of repetitive circular tattooing movements to create a softer skin texture and to soften the fibrous bands of collagen (scar tissue) to give the patient more flexibility in their movements. This procedure works well on all contracted tissue with exceptional results on hands. With Scar Relaxation procedure fibrous bands of scar tissue needled promoting the ability to move and stretch the skin where it was once tight.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE THIS PROCEDURE?
To have more maneuverability in the contractured tissue, this procedure will achieve that. The tissue will be flatter, giving the patient range of motion that was only possible with surgery prior to this procedure.
Tammy’s skill and professionalism are of the highest caliber. Her vast experience and specialized training from an Italian based pioneer in the field of tricopigmentation, make her the top choice! Her customer service and facilities are beyond excellent. Highly recommended!
I had gotten so tired of using powders and pencils to define my sparse brows every morning, so I did a lot of research and chose lasting beauty for my microblading. I was nervous about what the end result might be. I was put at ease by Tammy and I could not recommend her more. I’m so happy with my brows and I wish I hadn’t waited so long!
My lip line has been uneven for years. I had lip liner done and had a great outcome! The lip color matches well to natural color and now lips are even.
Such a great experience! I love the final look of my brows. Tammy is excellent at her craft and her reviews are second to none! Loved them so much, my little sister had hers done too. You won’t regret it. Great value!
Fantastic job at microblading! She listened to exactly what I wanted and helped me visualize my “perfect” brow
Such a wonderful experience. Tammy made me feel very comfortable. I feel like I look 10 years younger. Professional setting. Would highly recommend her services.
I’ve been going to Tammy for several years now to get my eyebrows done. You are in the best of hands with her. She is incredibly talented, professional and kind. If you’ve been thinking about permanent makeup for a while now, don’t hesitate any longer. Tammy will work wonders for you!! It is 110% worth it. Everyday I am grateful for my perfect eyebrows.
Tammy Stanek was wonderful. Made me feel at ease and very professional. I highly recommend her!!
The detailed information and professionalism Tammy provides is #1, loved her thoroughness and end results are exactly as promised. Highly recommend!!
I was impressed with Tammy and her process from start to finish. She was very professional (as is her salon) and friendly, making me feel at ease. She took the time to talk with me so that she would really understand what I was looking for. She had pictures to show of results so that I would know what to expect. She did a great job on both the eyeliner and teaching me about aftercare for best long term results.
