Microblade vs Nano

Microblading is very popular at the moment, but its not the ONLY way to get natural, fuller brows!  Permanent makeup machines are also used to create super fine, crispy hairstrokes that actually last longer than microblading!

Here are the main differences:

Microblading:

* Manual technique- a handtool with very fine needles in a linear shape is used to create fine hair like lines to mimic hair. The microblade tool is dipped in pigment and then used to make a very fine cut in the skin, similar to a paper cut.

* THIS IS ALSO A TATTOO.

* This creates a ultra natural result

* NOT SUITABLE for all skin types – e.g Very oily skin with large pores, bleeders or very vascular skin types, older, thin skin types.

* 2 sessions is required 6 -10 weeks apart

* Annual touch up every 1 – 1.5 years is required there after to keep the tattoo looking fresh

* Clients that are used to filling in their brows often find Microblading to light.

* If not performed by a trained professional or to often (e.g touchups less than 1 year intervals) micro scarring can occur.

Machine hairstrokes (AKA Nano/ HD/ featherstroke/ feathering/ hairstrokes)

* A permanent makeup (tattoo) machine is used to create fine hair like lines to mimic hair. “Nano” is the name of the ultra fine needle that is used.

* Can be performed on most skin types, within reason.

* The technique can be adjusted to be as natural as microblading or bolder if the client prefers.

* 2 sessions is required 6 -10 weeks apart

* Annual touch up every 2 – 2.5 years is required there after to keep the tattoo looking fresh.

Both techniques look fantastic on the right skins and if performed by a trained professional.

I recommend what I think will work best for your skin type at your appointment
