What is nanoneedling (nano brows)

Hey Guys, it’s me Sabria again! For this blog, I’d like to discuss in more detail what exactly is nanoneedling or what I like to call it: Nano Brows. Before I begin to, I’d first like to thank all of my clients, website visitors, Instagram & Facebook followers. Without you guys, Brows & Beyond and myself would not be in the position that we are today! With that being said, I’d like to offer my beloved audience a glimpse of what I do for a living, and why I love it. If you’d like to check out my other blogs, click here. By the end of this blog, I can guarantee that you’ll be interested in the nanoneedling experience, and hopefully you’re ready to sign up for your new brows – or maybe even learn how to do it

Happy Reading!

1.What are nano brows?

Nano Brows are created using a nanoneedling technique that is kind of a mixture between Microblading & Powdered Brows. This permanent makeup technique is created with a singular needle that is operated by a machine. The nanoneedling technique is kind of like getting a tattoo but instead of ink, we use Tina Davies Permanent Makeup Pigments. This specific technique requires a device that’s catered to creating precise lines while administering pigment into the skin. 


2.What’s the difference between nanoneedling
(nano brows) & microblading?

The reason why I compare different techniques to microblading is because I generally do not like the microblading technique as much as I Powdered or nanoneedling techniques. I feel that microblading offers clients a limited look, takes longer, and is super invasive. Nanoneedling is less traumatic on the skin, giving you a more desirable look, as well as faster healing times. Microblading is done manually and the tools used can not only damage the skin more than nanoneedling, it can also create deeper lines which may not heal properly. Powdered Brows, which is explained more here, has more of an ombre effect whereas Nano Brows has more of a stippling/shading combination.

3.Will the nanoneedling (nano brow) technique hurt?

As a professional, I will never lie to you. If you’re new to needles or any cosmetic tattooing, nanoneedling might get a little intense. That’s ok though, before every procedure, I like to apply a numbing cream to help ease the pain- if any. To be honest, the pain level varies among clients- some have a higher tolerance than others. Even though the nanoneedling technique may hurt a little depending on the person, I can say honestly, it’s only a little! Lol

4.How long does the nanoneedling (nano brow) technique take?

I really do not like this question,  but over the years, it’s probably become the most common question I get among my clients- prospective & current. The reason why I don’t like this question is simple; what I love to do is difficult, and can be very taxing physically & mentally. It’s crucial to understand that there’s more to nanoneedling (nano brows than what it may seem. There are things like: Mapping, Sketching, Blending, & more. Permanent Makeup is truly an art form, but, if I were to give an estimated time frame on how long it will take to complete the Nano Brow experience, I’d say it would take me about 2 hours to complete.

5. How long does it take for nanoneedling (nano brows) to heal?

This is a really hard question to answer because everyone is different but so is their skin. It’s normal to see some scabbing or flaking as your Nano Brows heal. Scabbing and flaking of the brows usually last for 2 weeks. It will take up to four weeks for your eyebrows to return to their normal look and colour. This may seem like a long time, but trust me, it’s worth it!

6.How do I get nano brows?

Well before you do anything, do your homework! I have seen many people come into my salon over the years with not so great pmu work. It’s much harder to cover up a bad job than to just add to a great one. In other words, this is why I do not like to work with other artist’s work. I cannot stress enough how important it is to do all the research you can before booking your next nanoneedling (Nano Brows) appointment. From Artist Training to cost- make sure everything adds up and is legit. After you do that, you should be pretty much sold on nano brows; no matter the artist. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact me and set up a consultation.
