Get the perfect brows with nanoblading!

What is Nanoblading?

Nanoblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing. Using super fine needles, pigment is deposited into the skin creating individual hair-like stokes that mimic the look of natural hair.

Who is Nanoblading good for?

This technique is good for anyone who wants to enhance the look of their existing brows, fill in any gaps caused from over plucking, medication, ill health, age, to define their shape, add colour and depth, improve symmetry, add fullness without the need for eyebrow make-up powders and pencils. 

What is the difference between Nanoblading and Microblading?

Both Nanoblading and Microblading use a hand held tool to deposit pigment into the skin using needles. However, Nanoblading uses smaller, finer needles and therefore, creates incredibly natural brows and improves precision and accuracy in comparison to Microblading. Nanoblading is my preferred technique. 

How long does Nanoblading take to do?

Including a consultation to discuss your desired shape and colour, this procedure can take between 1.5hours to 2hours. A follow up appointment must be arranged 4-6 weeks later for a top up. This usually takes no more than 1hour.

How long will my Nanoblading last?

Nanoblading can last anything between 1-2 years. Gradually, the pigment will begin to fade due to the natural process of the skins cell turnover (shedding and renewing of the skin). Therefore, a yearly top up is recommended to keep your eyebrow pigment looking vibrant. It is important to note that everyone’s skin is different and therefore other factors may alter how well the pigment lasts in the skin. For example, over exposure to sunlight, medication, skin exfoliators (AHA’S, BHA’S), retinols.

How long does Nanoblading take to heal?

Nanoblading is fully healed within 4-6weeks, when all scabs have naturally shed from the skin. It is important to note that during the healing process, the scabs should be allowed to naturally shed and never picked off otherwise this could cause loss of pigment.

Is Nanoblading painful?

This procedure may cause a slight discomfort for some people. However, numbing solution is applied to the eyebrows to avoid this. Every care is taken to ensure my clients comfort and wellbeing.

Do I need a patch test prior to a Nanoblading treatment?

A patch test is required 72hours prior to this treatment to ensure suitability. This will be provided to clients with full instructions to do at home or alternatively applied by myself at the Beauty studio.

Are there any pre-existing conditions that prevent clients from having Nanoblading?

Not everyone is suitable to have this treatment due to medical conditions and medication. Those who keloid scar cannot have this treatment, those who are on Accutane must be off of treatment for 1 year, serious illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy, autoimmune diseases require a doctor’s note, if you are taking blood thinning medication. A full consultation is needed prior to treatment to determine this.

Can I get Nanoblading done whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

This treatment must not be done whilst pregnant. Once you have stopped breastfeeding this treatment is safe to do.

Can I get Nanoblading done if I have Botox/Fillers?

This treatment is safe to have done. However, it should be performed either 4 weeks prior to your scheduled procedure or 4 weeks after your procedure.

Is it safe to have Nanoblading whilst using topical creams such as Retin A or Retinols?

You must cease the use of Retin A or Retinols for 14 days prior to your treatment. Avoid using on or around the area for a further 30 days’ post treatment. Due to the nature of Vitamin A, it will increase the skins cell turnover. Therefore, if applied continuously over your pigment, it could result in the pigment fading prematurely.

How can I prepare before my Nanoblading treatment?

  • It is important that your eyebrows are free of any make-up on the day of your appointment. 
  • Do not take aspirin, niacin, vitamin E/ibuprofen for 72hours prior to your procedure. However, it is important to note, do not discontinue any medication that you are currently taking without consulting your doctor first.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, energy drinks for at least 24hours prior to the procedure.

  • It is recommended to shower and fix your hair prior to your appointment, as you will need to take extra care not to get your brows wet for several days.
  • It is recommended all clients read through in detail their pre-treatment advice pack, prior to their appointment.

Can I wax, thread, tweeze or tint my eyebrows before or after Nanoblading?

Eyebrows can be waxed, threaded, tweezed and tinted at least 72hours prior to treatment. However, it is recommended that any tinting or waxing after Nanoblading, should be carried out 30days after the procedure when the Nanoblading is fully healed.

Can I have chemical peels, microdermabrasion, mesotherapy or other intense facial treatments prior to Nanoblading?

It is recommended that any of the above treatments are carried out 4 weeks prior to treatment or 4 weeks after treatment when eyebrows are fully healed.

Are there any after care procedures?
