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.
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.
I can’t believe I haven’t already written a review for Tammy. She is incredible! I first had my eyebrows microbladed in October of 2019 and my experience was perfect. She took lots of time to make sure my new brow shape was meticulously laid out and that I felt happy with it every step of the way. She is also incredibly experienced which was necessary because sometimes I had strong opinions about what I wanted and sometimes I wanted to defer to her professional opinion. She really knows her job backwards and forwards (and her reviews and client photos speak for themselves). I felt totally confident that she would not let me make a choice that was going to end up looking strange or out of proportion but also that she wouldn’t override my opinions and do something I wouldn’t like.
I recently had my eyebrows refreshed. After 18 months they were still in great shape but they had faded naturally over time. The second experience was even easier in every way! I can’t express how much more confident I feel since having this done. It really has been the most impactful $400 I’ve ever invested in myself. My mom has been jealous of my brows since I had them done and just scheduled her first appointment for next month while she will be here visiting me.
You cannot go wrong with Tammy!
Tammy is an amazing person! She has great attention to detail and made sure my brows were perfectly drawn before she began. She is kind, caring and self assured. Her place is clean and I felt very safe having my procedure done by her. She is incredibly talented! Don’t hesitate to see her!!!
Do not wait any longer if you’re considering microblading. Tammy is amazing! Very thorough and clearly explains the best options for your needs. Highly recommend! Absolutely LOVE my brows and how now they are zero maintenance. Best decision to finally have them done.
Great experience! Tammy provided help in selecting a color for brows. She explained the process as it was happening. Provided detailed info on how to care for brows. I was nervous that the brows were really dark after, but faded to the color I was hoping for within 2 weeks. I’m very happy with results and would recommend Tammy.
This was my first experience with Microblading. Met first for a consultation so that I knew exactly what to expect. She took time to explain everything. Day of procedure she was very detailed oriented, explain everything, cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her. I am happy that I decided to have the procedure done. I can’t imagine not having eyebrows that look so natural and perfect. Thank you Tammy.
I love the results of my permanent eyeliner. The service was done in such a professional manner! After about a week my eyes fully healed and it is so nice to not have to apply eyeliner anymore! The studio were very clean and the service provided was professional but personal. I felt in safe hands with someone who had decades of experience. I highly recommend Lasting Beauty Cosmetics to anyone considering permanent makeup applications.
Very professional and knowledgeable! Tammy was able to let me know the best brow enhancement for my oily skin. She shaped my brow to best fit my face shape and bone structure.
I had been thinking about getting my eyebrows done for several years, but felt very nervous about it. I chose Lasting Beauty Cosmetics after reading very positive reviews. I’m so glad I did. Tammy listened to my concerns and gave me the eyebrows I had dreamed about. She was very patient and explained what she was doing at every step. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and would highly recommend Tammy and Lasting Beauty Cosmetics.
I’m a return customer to Lasting Beauty Cosmetics, since it was time to refresh my eyebrow microblading and my eyeliner. I wouldn’t consider going to anyone but Tammy. She takes the time to carefully plan the work with you, to make sure you will be happy with the result. She takes care to use anesthetic so you will be as comfortable as possible. Tammy spends quite a lot of time attending classes and improving her skills with the latest techniques. Not to mention, her studio is always spotlessly clean!
The owner, Tammy is fabulous. She took the time to make me feel comfortable and secure. She took the time to explain exactly what she was doing. She was very careful and precise, making sure my eyebrows were perfect and included my opinion along the way. I absolutely love them. I no longer need to paint them in and guess where they were before. I just get up and go! Thank you so much…love them!
