Microblading is growing in popularity and is fast becoming one of the hottest techniques for eyebrow tattooing. The reason for microblading’s propularity? The RESULTS! The results show that it is difficult to tell the difference between the tattooed eyebrow hairs and the real hairs Microblading is a manual method that is performed without the use of an electrically powered machine. Pigment is applied into the skin using a hand instrument fixed with a very fine blade. It is with this “blade” that realistic eyebrow hair strokes are replicated. The results can last anywhere form 12 to 18 months.
Permanent make-up is a form of tattooing that has been designed for the face
Together with a special pen-like instrument and quality pigments, colour is placed into the second layer of the skin known as the dermis
Because colour is placed “in” your skin and not “on” your skin the result is softer and more natural looking than conventional make-up. Permanent make-up is also known as “cosmetic tattoo”, “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” and “dermagraphics”
Skin Needling also called micro needling or derma rolling is a powerful skin remodeling technique. We use a handheld device that has rows of very, fine needles that lightly pierce the skin. The device creates vertical and horizontal, micro-perforations into the epidermis or top layer of the skin. This creates a perceived “injury”. This “injury” is enough to stimulate the body’s wound healing response. The healing response stimulates the skin to regenerate collagen and elastin, resulting in thicker skin, younger looking skin. Recommended treatment areas include: Improves aged, sagging skin and sun spots / Smooths fine lines and wrinkles / Plumps up fine lines / Vertical lip lines / Skin tightening and rejuvenation / Enlarged pores / Stretch marks / Improves acne scars, chicken pox and surgical scars. On average, patients have some slight pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for one to two days. Visible skin needling results usually require multiple sessions. Improvement in skin tone and texture will start to show within six to eight weeks. Your skin will continue to improve drastically in the following months. After a series of procedures, a significant improvement will be noticeable. Shape It Up recommends anywhere between three to eight treatments as a general guideline.
