Nano Brows Treatment
Permanent makeup treatments have been proper life-savers. They can recreate the look of wearing makeup, but in semi-permanent versions that don’t wash off or smudge. The new era of the brow tattoo offers us a number of different techniques to choose from – although microblading is still number 1, nano brows have emerged as a close second.
Nano brows are a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that gives the brows volume and definition by adding fine hair strokes between the natural hairs. It’s done with a machine that implements PMU pigments into the surface layer of the skin, so not as deep as traditional tattooing.
The pigments are inserted in thin strokes that resemble the brow hairs, so the final look is very natural – the strokes are indistinguishable from the hairs. Of course, the technique can recreate brow arches from scratch for clients who don’t have any hairs due to certain conditions.
The results stay visible for 1.5 to 2.5 years, at which point they’ll fade away if left untouched. The colors used are formulated in such a way that the body breaks them down and they’re dissolved, which allows you to modify the look every once in a while instead of being stuck with it forever.
Nano Brows is the next generation of microblading. Here are the primary differences
Microblading Vs Nano Machine Hairstroke Method
The technique of Nano Brows uses a softer rotary pen machine with a single needle to inject the pigment into the skin in a fashion very similar to tattooing, but much less deep into the skin and hence less painful. Microblading uses a razor-like tool to scratch & cut the skin and then the pigment is filled into the tiny cuts. Because the Nano technique does not cut the skin, It is less invasive and is a less traumatic technique for the skin in comparison to the microblading technique.
The results of nano machine hair-stokes procedure typically last longer than microblading by 6 to 9 months and hence less frequent touch-ups are required
Microblading is not for everyone. If you have extremely oily skin, you may not be an ideal candidate for microblading treatment. It is also not suitable for thin, fragile, or sensitive skin.
Machine Hair-strokes, on the other hand, is amazing for clients who have very oily or delicate skin.
In microblading -When a hair stroke with pigment is initiated into the skin the possibility of outside elements such as the numbing agent, water from wiping the brows or even lymph fluid and blood can dilute the pigment which can result in poorly healed strokes or premature fading. A top microblading artist can reduce the likelihood of this happening but the possibility is still there, the nanomachine hair stroke service avoids these types of risk altogether. The Nano services allows you to have fully saturated hairs stokes with better retention, As a result, the nano machine strokes last longer because the device is able to implant more pigment into each hair stroke.
Both techniques are considered permanent makeup procedures and provide the look of realistic hair strokes in the skin.
In terms of immediate aesthetic value – On right skin, both methods can create results that look very similar and equally great for 6 to 9 months, however Nano strokes will retain their aesthetic value for a longer period
Another advantage is the stability of Color & Shape. Over time the Nano brow color stays more true to the originally intended color in comparison to the Microbladed brow color. Also there is less shrinking/thinning in shape over time. Due to this predictability in color as well, Nano brows are considered a safer brow procedure.
Nano brows take upto 3 to 4 hours appointment time in comparison to Microblading that needs up to 2 hours. It also requires a higher skill level, practice and experience for the artist to be able to provide the right Nano hair strokes service in comparison to Microblading.
When you are not sure about your artists’s expertise or taking a chance with a locally available less experienced artist, Microblading could be a safer bet as it does not last as long. However, if your artist is well recognized and extremely experienced then you are better off investing directly in the best technique of Nano Hairstrokes.
Yes, Because of the higher skill level & training required, more time consumed in the creation process, more sophisticated digital instruments involved, Nano brows can cost as much as double the price for microblading depending on your artist. However since they last longer, create less trauma to the skin, and stay true to the shape & color over time, the advantages of Nano brows are ample to consider investing in them over microblading.
The nano machine strokes services goes through the similar process of microblading. Your Artist will take you through the steps of drawing and mapping your brows just like you want them prior to starting the actual service. Once you confirm, the artist will numb your brow area with numbing cream to ensure there is little to no discomfort and then the nano brow strokes creation begins with the digital pen-like device. Your Artist will plan the stroke pattern most suitable for you , and then go through each stroke 3 to 4 times to make it dark enough to heal perfectly. This process can take up to three and a half hours so be patient.
Everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. That being said, most clients who received this service found it less stimulating on the skin in comparison to Microblading.
Remember, numbing anesthetic cream is added to your brow area prior to the service starting so that you can relax comfortably while you undergo your transformation. However, if you do experience any discomfort, let your technician know so that they can reapply the numbing gel and make necessary adjustments.
Equally important to your PMU Microblading Artist being really good at what they do is your ability to follow the rules of the game after your procedure is complete. This will greatly determine the outcome of you having the best healed nano brow results.
During the healing process your brows might feel slightly itchy and there may be some light scabbing.
Don’t worry this is all a part of the process! You will be given ointment by your technician that you should apply daily to your brows to help calm and lightly moisturize the brow area which will help with the healing process. The entire healing process should take about 10 days. In addition to applying the ointment, during this window of time it’s extremely important you follow theses set of rules listed below.
1. Avoid direct water contact to your brows for at least 10 days.
This means if you are leaving for vacation where you plan on enjoying water activities then you may need to wait for this brow service or change your vacation plans! This also means if you’re into hot yoga or any other physical exercise that will cause you to sweat and get your brows wet then you’ll have to put that activity on hold over the next several days.
2. Don’t pick at your brows if there is scabbing.
Although with the Nano Machine Brow procedure scabbing should be minimal you still should not pick if in case this does happen. Picking can remove pigment from the skin making the color not last.
3. Avoid direct sunlight, which also means no sun tanning at the beach or tanning salon.
4. Don’t apply any makeup or chemicals on your brows so that your brows can breathe and heal properly. This is key to you retaining maximum color.
Touch Ups and Long-Term Results
After your initial session you will need to come back in for a touch-up usually within 8 to 12 weeks. This will allow your artist to check your healing progress and color retention. This time will also be used to fill in or adjust the shape of your brows if requested. Touch up appointments typically last about an hour to 2 hours.
After successfully completing your after-care and attending your touch-up appointment the long-term results are you waking up to beautiful brows up to the next 2 to 3 years. Pretty awesome right? No more needing to take the extra time filling in your brows every day. Now you can choose to use the extra time however you please.
Depending on the color retention in your brows you may decide to come back prior to 3 years to receive a color boost. It’s completely optional and based upon your preference. The next session should be rather simple and should take less time than your original appointment assuming that you go back to the original artist who performed the service and that you want to keep the current shape of your brows.
