What is nanoblading?
Nanoblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo technique that uses a fine nano needle. It fills in scarce, thin eyebrows for a thicker appearance. The procedure involves the use of pigmented ink and a super fine needle to create hair-like tattoo strokes. These strokes look like natural hair. This technique doesn’t only thicken the appearance of eyebrows, it can also change the shape of your brows.
What’s the difference between nanoblading and microblading?
Nanoblading is similar to microblading. The difference is that nanoblading uses a smaller needle than microblading. Precision and accuracy improves because of the smaller needle, allowing for more natural looking results.
A smaller needle also means less pain and bleeding. Another difference involves how long results last. Microblading may only last up to 12 months, whereas nanoblading may lasts up to 3 years
How do I prepare for my procedure?
To prepare for your treatment:
Don’t wax or tweeze your eyebrows a week prior to treatment.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, aspirin, and fish oil supplements at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
Don’t get a facial at least 2 weeks prior to treatment.
Don’t sunbathe or tan the day of your procedure.
Don’t use retinol or Vitamin A products 1 month prior to treatment.
What’s a nanoblading procedure like?
You’ll start by discussing the desired shape and color of your eyebrows with Faezeh. She will then draw out the desired shape, removing excess hair and making adjustments for symmetry. Once you agree to the shape and color, Faezeh will apply numbing cream to the area being bladed. She will then use the needle and pigment to create hair-like strokes and fill in your brows. After the initial session, you’ll return for a follow-up session in about 8 weeks to perfect the look. She might add additional strokes and tweak the shape of your brows. This is known as the perfecting session.
What should I do after the procedure?
After the procedure, keep your eyebrows as dry as possible.
Wipe your eyebrows daily with a damp cloth, and then apply moisturizing cream provided by Faezeh.
Avoid sweating, saunas, and hot baths for the first 7 days.
Don’t wear makeup around your eyebrows for at least a week.
You should also avoid tanning beds, light therapy, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels for the next 30 days.
What results should I expect after the procedure?
It takes about 4 weeks for nanobladed eyebrows to heal. Initially, your brow color may be darker than expected. You may also have swelling, soreness, and redness. The color will lighten as your eyebrows heal and new skin develops over the area. It will take 3 to 4 weeks for tattoo eyebrows to blend with your natural hair.
