I had the pleasure of doing permanent makeup for Renee recently and this is what she had to say.

“For years I was buying brow pencils because of my eyebrows being thin and barely visible . I am so glad I gave Kim a call. My eyebrows never looked this good. She has so much knowledge and helps you find the best color and shape for your eyebrows. Best decision I have ever nade, ” -Renee S.

There is no time like the present to start taking care of your skin. Microneedling is a great way to get started. Microneedling is a treatment that helps your body to produce collagen, tighten , brighten and improve the overall look and condition of the skin. Treatments can be done as a one time visit or as a series to get maximum results in a short period of time. A numbing agent is applied to the skin so that when the very small grooping of needles brushes across the skin it feels like a vibration or a pickiness depending on your sensitivity. The needling does not tear or damage the skin. Because the needles penetrate to the dermal level where the nerve endings are, your brain interprets the process as injury and produces new healthy skin. This process will continue for 5 months after the treatment. Skin texture improves, fine lines and wrinkles will smooth out. Dark spots will be diminished or go away. Microneedling is good for stretch marks and scars as well. With the treatment on the face for example, one area (around the eyes)costs $150. The whole face can be done for $300

permanent makeup creates beautiful eyebrows and eyeliner that lasts

Spring is a great time for permanent cosmetics.  Most people are more active in the warmer weather and engage in many outdoor activities.  Having permanent makeup allows you to swim, bike, hike, picnic etc. without having to worry about your makeup smearing or coming off.

Eyebrows frame the eyes and have a dramatic effect on our appearance.  If the hair is sparse in this area many people feel the need to use pencil or powder to fill in and add shape to frame the eye.  Even if you are an artist or are really good with makeup this can prove to be a very difficult and tedious task.  Even when you are able to make the brows look great, life gets in the way and can wipe them off.  Eyeliner can make the lashes look much thicker and enhance the appearance of our eyes by making them look more open or brighter.  Warm weather activities can make it hard to keep the eyeliner from smudging or getting washed away.

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, can be the answer to these problems.  Please call for information and come in for a free consultation to see if permanent cosmetic are right for you.

How does it work?  A numbing agent is used on the treated area and a digital pen device is used to implant natural looking pigment into the dermal layer of the skin.  Your body will encapsulate the pigment and hold it in place, much like a tattoo.

How much does it cost?  Eyebrows are $400.  Eyeliner ( top and bottom) is $400.  This price includes 2 visits which are required to complete your procedure.

What if I’m scared? Most people are at least a little apprehensive,  that is normal.  Having permanent makeup is an important decision and it should not be made without a thorough consultation and a full understanding of what to expect.  At La’Derma you will be sure to receive a detailed description of the process and full support for insuring the best possible outcome.

Is your skin, dehydrated, sagging, wrinkled? Do you have brown spots, scars, stretch marks? Microneedling can help. Read more…

Most people love the look and feel of a little sun.  Sometimes after the summer is over, we notice the effects that don’t feel so great.  Microneedling is a great way to turn back the aging process by stimulating the body to produce collagen and healthy new skin cells naturally.  It literally improves the skin from the inside out.  No artificial fillers or toxins are used.  There are basically 3 levels of treatment.  Meso therapy is a treatment that only affects the epidermis or top layers of the skin.  With this treatment your skin will immediately look more hydrated and plump. It takes less than an hour.  There is no down time.  Meso therapy is very relaxing and affordable.  From now until November 20, 2017 it will be $79.  The second level of treatment, microneedling, affects the dermis or underlying layers of skin.  This treatment improves the skin’s elasticity, texture and can eliminate brown spots. It works on sagging, wrinkles, and stretch marks.  This can be done on the face, neck, arms, legs, stomach etc.  The skin will appear red ( like a sunburn ) for 1 to 3 days after.  This treatment is more permanent because it works on the dermal layer.  The skin will continue to improve for 5 months.  There is a minimum charge of $150 and discounts are applied for doing multiple areas.  For example the whole face would be $300.  The third level of treatment is to minimize lines or to treat scars.  This treatment stimulates your body to grow new layers of skin to fill in lines and or replace scar tissue with healthy new skin.  Line and scar treatments start at $150 and discounts are applied for multiple areas.  Consultations are free and there is no obligation…check it out today.                  610-781-7131  Ongoing special….Buy 3….get one FREE

Summer is a great time for Microneedling to tighten the skin

             Summer is a wonderful time of the year for most people.  We look forward to being outside in the beautiful weather and enjoying a lot of outdoor activities.  With the warm weather comes less clothing.   This can be somewhat uncomfortable for some of us.  Even if you are able  to eat well and work hard to stay in shape you may have some sagging skin.   This can happen due to weight loss, surgery, injuries or just simply getting older.  Microneedling can help.  Think of it as exercise for the skin.  Microneedling is a treatment that helps your body to make tighter, healthier skin, naturally.  It is similar to how exercising makes the muscles firmer and tighter.  The first photo shows sagging skin that was a result of weight loss.  This person eats very healthily and works hard to stay in shape.  She was not happy with how her upper arms looked in short sleeves.  The second photo shows her skin after microneedling.    The skin is tighter and her arms look more fit and toned like the rest of her body.                                                                                                                                                                  


This photograph shows sagging skin and stretch marks on the stomach.  This can happen with weight loss or after child birth.  The second photo shows great results after just one microneedling treatment.  The skin is tighter and the stretch marks are almost gone.

Looking your best with permanent makeup

Permanent Cosmetics

Warmer weather is here and activities are heating up too.  If you are active or just enjoy looking your best without spending a lot of time getting there, permanent cosmetics may be for you.  Not everyone is blessed with thick, full eyelashes and perfect brows.    Aging, over-plucking, and scars are a few reasons why the brows may have thinned out.  Permanent cosmetics can fill in the spaces in the brows that time has erased.  Permanent eyeliner makes the lashes look fuller and


your eyes more bright and attractive.  Permanent Makeup allows you to wake up looking more refreshed.  Participating in activities such as swimming, biking, hiking, golfing etc, will no longer smudge your eyeliner and brows.  Permanent Eyeliner or Brows can look even more natural than makeup due to the fact that the pigment is in the skin rather than on top of it.  Call today for your free consultation.

Microneedling for the whole body

Before photo of loose skin on the stomach

Microneedling is a great treatment for improving the condition and appearance of the skin.

In the before photo the skin on the stomach is crepey and stretched due to weight changes.

After one treatment there is considerable improvement in the look and texture of the skin.

There is no down time with this treatment and it is very affordable.  Treatments start at $150 .



Compare Microneedling skin treatments to botox, fillers and microdermabrasion.

Compare Microneedling for your skin treatments.  If you are considering some type of treatment to improve the appearance and condition of your skin, compare microneedling.  Microneedling is a safe and effective way to get your body to improve your skin by producing it’s own collagen.  This production can increase skin’s elasticity, firmness and appearance.  Fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots will diminish and your skin will be more hydrated.  Microneedling is also a great way to treat stretch marks and scars and sagging skin.  Instead of injecting a foreign substance into the skin, microneedling uses tiny needles in a penlike device that are”brushed” over the surface of the skin without cutting or damaging the skin.  This process stimulates the brain to “make new skin” by sending a fresh supply of collagen and elastin to plump up and fortify the lower layers of skin without damaging or removing the top layers. As the outer layers of skin gradually and naturally slough off the new healthier layers are exposed.  This produces a healthier, younger look to the skin.  The new layers of skin will contuinue to improve over the next five months.  You can have one treatment done and wait 5 months to determine if and when you want another treatment or you can schedule a few treatments spaced about a month apart to get maximum results in the shortest time frame.  The only “downtime” is a flushed appearance to the skin for 1-3 days.  Clean foundation can be applied on the second day to conceal any pink or redness in most cases.  Treatments start at $150 for one zone ( ex: between the eyebrows, or crows feet)  Special pricing is available when combining areas.  Other areas that have been successfully treated at La’Derma include the neck, decolletage, arms, hands, legs and stomach.

Microneedling is an effective and affordable way to greatly improve the condition of the skin and combat the aging process.  Unlike peels and laser treatments, microneedling speeds up the process of new healthier skin cells without damaging the outer layers of skin.  This treatment keeps the outer layers of skin in tact and looking good.  This treatment stimulates the brain to make new skin improving collagen production and elasticity.  The result is firmer and thicker skin.  Microneedling also diminishes dark spots due to sun exposure.  It can greatly improve the appearance of fine lines and smooth uneven texture.  Raised scars can be broken down and new skin created in the area.  In the case of acne scars or pocked looking marks, new skin can fill in the hollowed area.  Even if your skin is in good shape, microneedling is a very safe and effective way to encourage your body to produce healthier, younger looking skin for years to come.   As we age, the skin naturally becomes thinner and collagen production slows down.  This creates a flatter and drooping look.  By stimulating the natural production of collagen you can stay ahead of this process.  Free consultations available at La’ Derma. 10-781-7131
