What You Need to Know About Nano Brows

While some trends come and go, others seem to evolve… and that’s what we’re seeing with the latest trend in semi-permanent eyebrow treatments. Microblading has long been hailed as a popular method for getting well-defined, feather-like hair strokes on eyebrows. However, nano needling is quickly gaining attention. So just what is the difference between microblading and nano needling?

The Difference Between Microblading and Nano Brows

Microblading involves using a small, sharp instrument of 10–16 small needles configured into the shape of a blade to deposit pigment into the skin. Small cuts are made and the pigment is left on the skin for several minutes before being gently wiped away.

Nano needling, or micropigmentation, is very similar to microblading. In a nano brow treatment, ultra-fine needles ranging in size from 0.18–0.35 are used to mimic the diameter and dimension of real hair in the skin. Since the needle sits inside the cartridge and depth penetration can be precisely adjusted, it’s easier for the technician to create perfect, natural-looking hair strokes.

Organic and non-organic pigmentations are specifically formulated for the sensitive eye area and come in varied shades and colours to get a more natural look.

Nano needles are fantastic as they are less likely to cause real damage to the skin or to implant the pigment too deep, causing scars as might happen with a heavy-handed microblading technician.

Although a microblading treatment may be less expensive that a nano needling session, you’ll get a LOT more bang for your buck with nano brows. A typical microblading session will last anywhere from 12–18 months; whereas, your nano brows can last up to 3 years!

Overall, you’ll get a more natural look with less trauma to the skin and more precision and accuracy.

What to Expect in Your First Nano Brow Treatment

As you might expect, it takes time and patience to create each meticulous hair stroke. Come to your appointment prepare to get your personalized eyebrow measuring, drawing, checking, and needling.

Your technician will discuss the colour and style of your eyebrows before the procedure. Topical anesthetic is used to make the process as comfortable as possible. In our experience, the tougher the skin the more sensitivity you may experience; however, in the long run those with tougher skin get better colour retention.

Keep in mind that your new nano brows will appear a couple of shades darker for the first week or so following treatment. A follow-up appointment (around 4 to 6 weeks later) will be required to perfect the shape and colour of your brows.

Caring for Your Nano Brows

After your initial and follow-up treatments, you’ll want to make sure to keep your new brows clean and healthy. To avoid any scarring or infection, avoid

picking at the scabs. Do not expose the treated areas to extreme heat or cold until the healing process is completed.

Initially, you’ll want to avoid using soaps, creams, or make-up around your brow area as they can have a negative effect on your new brows. Sun exposure, light and laser treatments, facial massages, and peels are not recommended until after your second appointment.

After your brows have healed, it’ll be important to use a cream with an SPF to protect your brow’s colour… but you already wear sunscreen daily to protect your delicate facial skin anyways, right?!! 

You’ll LOVE the natural look of your new brows almost as much as you’ll love how much time you’ll save each morning! If you’re interested to learn more about our nano brow treatments, give us a call at 705.256.6461 or reserve your appointment online.
