Precision over Invasion
Nano brows is a semi-permanent makeup technique that involves using a digital device with a fine needle to create hair-like strokes in the eyebrow area. The device used in nano brows is similar to a tattoo machine, but it is designed to be more precise and less invasive.
How does it work?
The first step in the nano brows process is a consultation with a trained and experienced technician. During this consultation, the technician will discuss your desired brow shape, color, and other details to ensure that you achieve the results you want.
Once you and the technician have agreed on the brow design, the technician will clean and prep the eyebrow area to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup that may interfere with the process.
A topical numbing cream will be applied to the brow area to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
Next, the technician will use the digital device to insert the fine needle into the skin, creating hair-like strokes that mimic natural eyebrow hairs. The device is designed to be very precise, allowing for detailed and accurate strokes.
As the technician creates the hair-like strokes, they will apply pigment to the skin to create the desired color and depth.
After the nano brows procedure, the technician will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure that the brows heal properly. The healing process is generally quicker than with microblading, with less scabbing and flaking.
How long will it last?
Nano brows typically last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on individual factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. The longevity of nano brows can also depend on the depth of the pigment implanted into the skin, as well as the color of the pigment used. Over time, the pigment may fade and the hairstrokes may soften, resulting in a more natural-looking effect. It is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your technician, such as avoiding excessive exposure to sunlight and avoiding picking or scratching the brow area, to help prolong the lifespan of your nano brows.
Nano Brows vs Microblading
What is the difference?
Unlike Nano brows, Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that uses a handheld tool with tiny needles to create hair-like strokes. It can provide a natural-looking eyebrow enhancement and can last longer than other semi-permanent makeup techniques. However, microblading can be more painful, and the healing process can take longer than nano brows. Compared to nano brows, microblading is with a larger blade, which can’t be used to create the small curvature on a brow hair. When curving in Microblading, it is also hard to control consistent pressure, therefore causing unnecessary damage to the skin when deep cuts happen often.
Microblading can be more damaging to the skin because it involves using a handheld tool with tiny needles to create small incisions in the skin. These incisions are then filled with pigment to create the appearance of natural-looking eyebrow hair strokes. While microblading can be a safe and effective technique when performed by a trained and experienced technician here at Lash Pilot, there are still some potential risks and side effects that can occur.
The microblading process can cause damage to the skin’s natural barrier and can create small cuts and scrapes. This can make the skin more vulnerable to infection and can lead to scarring if not properly cared for. Additionally, microblading can cause swelling, redness, and mild discomfort, which can last for several days after the procedure.
Overall, while microblading can be a safe and effective technique for creating natural-looking eyebrows, it is important to carefully consider the potential risks and side effects before undergoing the procedure. It is also essential to choose a trained and experienced technician who follows proper safety and sanitation protocols to minimize the risk of complications.
Ultimately, the choice between nano brows and microblading will depend on an individual’s personal preferences, skin type, and other factors. It is important to consult with a trained and experienced technician to discuss which option may be best for your specific needs.
