Permanent makeup is a technique which employs pigmentation on the dermis as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup, such as eyelining and other permanent enhancing colors to the skin of the face, lips, and eyelids. It is also used to produce astonishing natural looking eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age, disease, such as alopecia totalis, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance, and to camouflage scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast's areola, particularly after breast surgery. Most commonly called Permanent makeup, other names include dermapigmentation, micropigmentation, and cosmetic or paramedical tattooing. All our services (except Paramedical Tattoing) come with a free complimentary top up.
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. This minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective. The micro-injuries created stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, which are the key to new, youthful-looking skin, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. Micro Needling uses a micropigmentation machine with a needle cartridge. The treatment is safe and does not require anything to be implanted into the skin. It works on exactly the same principle as many other dry needling techniques. This straight forward technique is the most effective treatment for scars. It is precise and targeted and you are not causing unnecessary trauma to unaffected parts of the skin.

Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous hair. Highly effective in minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant. It's great for prepping the skin prior to peels, enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients. It involves controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade held at a 45-degree angle for the removal of keratinized cells on the outermost layer of the skin and fine vellous hair.
The technique of implanting pigment after the creation of fine incisions in the skin may date back thousands of years, but the trend towards using the technique for eyebrows emerged in Asia and was known as feathering or embroidery prior to becoming known as microblading. Similar to permanent makeup eyebrow treatments using a machine, the Microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that can be very natural looking. The needles used come in a variety of diameters so that the thickness of each individual hair stroke can be customized to each client depending on the width of their natural hairs as to make the microblading process look more natural. he color choice is patient specific and is mixed using a natural selection of micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone.
Created by skin care experts, Genuine Dermaroller products provide a safe and simple alternative to intensive in-clinic micro-needling treatments. Micro-needling has long been used in-clinic to help stimulate the repair processes within the skin in order to tackle textural issues and the early signs of ageing, by using a roller packed with tiny needles to create tunnels in the surface layers of the skin. The success of such treatments has led to the development of less invasive types of skin needling, which use a shorter length needle, to penetrate the skin. This act of puncturing the surface triggers the production of collagen and elastin to fill in these holes, which then has a knock-on effect on other depressions in the skin such as wrinkles and fine lines. These holes in the surface – which can’t be seen by the naked eye – also make it easier for the active ingredients in any serum or cream to penetrate deeper into the lower layers of the skin, essentially enhancing their corrective benefits and guaranteeing users better results in the long term.
scalp micropigmentation - Scalp 4 H
A novel remedy for baldness, ‘scalp micropigmentation’ is essentially the process of having your scalp tattooed with tiny dots that resemble the appearance of stubble, giving you that short, ‘buzz-cut’ hairstyle. It’s touted as an ‘effective solution to hair loss and there’s no invasive surgery, no scarring and no down time. The procedure can also be used to conceal the scars from hair transplantation or to make thinning hair seem thicker, particularly useful for male and female pattern baldness. In contrast to tattoos, the procedure does not penetrate as deeply, and the inks used are less prone to colour change over time.
ReMake Up has now fully introduced Scalp 4 H and welcomes all enquiries and consultations. We can only promise you a fair, professional, trustworthy advice and service. The first step is to book a consultation with
EYEBROW TINTING & SHAPE
This technique allows to add depth and shape to your brows, which frames and flatters the face. As the tint tends to last for a couple of weeks it takes away the fuss of filling brows in daily with make-up, allowing you more time for your mornings or before events.
We will discuss shape, length and, of course, colour. As tinting lasts for a few weeks it’s important to completely understand what are your expectations and look you want to achieve with the procedure.
PHI LASHES LIFTING (With tinting option)
Basically, the Lash Lifting is an eyelash lift that acts from the root and not only gives your Lashes structure, it also adds volume, whilst moisturising and caring for them. The treatment is a gradual process, during which the eyelashes are protected and hydrated, lifted and shaped, in order to be painted. It is not painful, and most of the time you will be with your eyes closed. The result is super natural since the work is done on our eyelashes, without extensions or other applications. It is as if you had a light mascara pass, which leaves your eyes looking much more awake and highlighted from the first moment of the day!
Radio Frequency Treatments for Skin Tightening and Face & Body Contouring
Radio Frequency stimulates collagen growth which improves skin laxity. The electrical pulses heat the deepest skin layer (the dermis) without damaging top layers of the skin (the epidermis). See Skin Layers picture below.
This heat stimulates new collagen growth. Collagen production in our bodies reduces as we age, normally at around 40 years old, or after the menopause in Woman. The reduced levels of collagen deteriorate the structural support framework holding your skin (and cartilage in joints) which causes the skin to sag with wrinkles and lines forming.
What is Lipofirm Plus and how does it work?
Lipofirm Plus is a medically certificated system that can provide non-surgical alternative treatment to Liposuction. Through the use of Ultrasound Cavitation and Radiofrequency it induces face and body contouring. The use of Ultrasound process induces natural fat and cellulite reduction and the Radiofrequency stimulates skin tightening.
Ultrasound Cavitation Treatments for Cellulite and Fat Reduction
To spark cavitation, ultrasound is used to sonically burst the fat tissue, effectively by shouting at the subcutaneous fat tissue it causes its’ structure to crumple. The high frequency sound wave creates bubbles which implode with the changed pressure. The implosion breaks up the fat tissues (triglycerides) into liquid (diglycerides) which then leave the body naturally.
The closest surgical alternative comparison to Lipofirm treatment for fat removal is Liposuction. With Ultrasound Cavitation the hand piece of the Lipofirm Plus machine is placed on top of the precise area of the skin holding the fat that is to be targeted. The monopolar transmission of the machine can then penetrate the layers of your skin to reach the Subcutaneous Fat layer and trigger it’s break up without the need for any invasive surgical procedures.
