What is Microblading? Microblading is a technique using a super-fine pen (technically, a bundle of 12 to 15 needles) to deposit pigment into skin. The tip is so fine, in fact, that it can create hair strokes that look legit. And the needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, which is what makes the method semi-permanent (versus permanent, like traditional cosmetic tattoos). Think of each stroke as a little paper-cut. (We know what you're wondering: Yes, it hurts, but your brow artist can numb the area first.) Compared to other techniques, microblading gives a very natural look and better simulates hair,
How long Microblading lasts? You'll need a touch-up in about four to six weeks then, microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your lifestyle and skin type. A few ways to extend it: Stay out of the sun, since it can fade the pigment, and avoid putting exfoliants (like retinol and glycolic acid) near your brows, because they'll lift the top layers of your skin with continued use—and the color with it.
What is Nano-blading? Microblading and Nano-blading both offer fine hair strokes that look natural and true to life, but nanoblading provides further precision and accuracy because it uses tiny needles, compacted together into an ultra fine blade. The Nano-blading technique will be able to create a more natural-looking brow shape because the artist can apply more accurate pressure and the pigment that is used is finer too. Nano-blading mimics the dimension and diameter of real hair on your skin.
How long does Nano-blading last? As a result of the gap between the two sessions, (first session and touch up) - to allow your brows to fully heal - you should have your perfect brows within eight weeks, but while the initial process is a lot longer than traditional waxing or tweezing the upkeep is much more minimum.
Your nanobladed brows should last one to three years before needing a maintenance appointment.

Healing & After Care Instructions: The #1 rule for eyebrows with microbladed hair strokes is a Wet heal. You can wash your brows very gently with Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena, but be sure to properly dry them afterwards and apply healing ointment. Avoid sweating excessively or using anti-aging/acne products on the treated area during the healing process, you can end up with blurry or faint hair strokes. Salt and chlorine can cause your tattoo to fade or change color – so it is imperative to avoid sweating and swimming. Please follow the instructions below to protect your cosmetic tattoo and promote a beautifully healed result.
WET HEAL FOR 10 DAYS! You may gently wash your eyebrows after 24 hrs of procedure, with Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena, but must keep your brows free from sweat and harsh products.
For the first 2 days, do not wash your hair at all or in a traditional manner in the shower (salon washes or dry shampoos are great alternatives). You want to avoid any harsh products touching your eyebrows.
For days 3-10, you can wash your hair in the shower but be sure to put to avoid hair products to touch your eyebrows while in the shower. You may wash your brows only with just water or a very sensitive soap (Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena). Once you exit shower immediately add your healing ointment (do not wipe with applied pressure as this can pull off the scab).
Do not rub, scratch, or pick at the treated area – this can cause scarring or pull out pigment causing premature fading. If you must tend to an itch, gently pat the area.
Remember that your cosmetic tattoo is a wound that is healing – treat it with care like any other wound. Clean hands are a must!
During the 10 day healing period, do not apply any products to the treated area (except for Vaseline temporarily). This includes make up, moisturizers, ointments and cleansers.
During the first month, do not scrub or exfoliate the treated area. Let any scabs fall off naturally.
For the life of the tattoo, never use the following products on the treated area: anti-aging, anti-acne, Retinol, renewal, skin-brightening, chemical peels, and heavy oil moisturizers. You can still use these products on the rest of your face, but take care to avoid the eyebrows. The better you care for your new brows, the better they’ll look and the longer they’ll last!
Healing Schedule / Typical Effects:
Days 1-2 The eyebrows are much darker and bolder than they will be when healed. The hair strokes will lighten and shrink throughout the healing process. Minor swelling may occur.
Day 3 Eyebrows can start to itch and appear a bit thicker in texture (this is a scab forming). Natural exfoliation begins – do not pick or scratch!
Days 4-7 Skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first – resist picking the scabs and let them fall off naturally. Be careful to avoid sleeping on your face, as this can rub off scabs.
Days 8-14 Any scabs that form will continue to flake and appear softer. The first part of the healing process is complete when there are no more scabs and the texture of the skin is once again smooth (typically around the 10-14 day mark). After this point you can resume working out, normal showering, and using makeup and gentle products on your eyebrows.
Days 15-45 Over these several weeks, color will gradually come back darker and more clarified. Continue to avoid exfoliation, excessive tanning and harsh chemicals. Schedule your follow up session after 6 weeks!
