Nanoblading vs. microblading:
Which eyebrow procedure is right for you?
Remember the 1990s? They may be longer ago than we’d care to admit, but let’s face it: Some things are better left in the past.
Kind of like those skinny eyebrows we tweezed and plucked into oblivion back in 1999. Yeah, you know the ones.
Despite what you may have seen or read, no, skinny eyebrows are not making a comeback. Not for us, anyway.
Having full, thick eyebrows lets the world know we are decisive, confident, and self-reliant—but achieving that look (and those feelings) can be time-consuming and overwhelming.
Daily shaping and shading. Applying products to keep our brows in place. Not even knowing where to start!
We totally get it. Trying to look and feel our best can be fraught with frustration—but it doesn’t have to be.
So, what’s the solution? How can we have the perfect eyebrows—all day, every day—with minimum effort?
That’s where microblading and nanoblading come into play.
For brows that will always look great and allow you to simplify your makeup routine, consider these two safe and effective eyebrow procedures.
Nanoblading is a procedure (ranging from $250 to $2,000) that uses a fine needle to apply pigmented ink under or around your eyebrows. If that sounds like getting a face tattoo, well, it sort of is. But don’t freak out! Nanoblading is only semi-permanent. And the procedure is performed with maximum precision and controlled movements for the most natural-looking eyebrows. The result is the appearance of thick, shapeful eyebrows in just four weeks.
- Long-lasting effects (up to 3 years!)
- Works for various skin types
- Effective on oily and scarred skin
- Allows you to customize brow shapes
- Creates perfect symmetry
- Applies the finest hair strokes
- Uses superfine needles
- Provides natural-looking results
- Lengthy procedure (up to 2 hours)
- Can cause some discomfort
- Some patients may be allergic to procedural pigments
Microblading is similar to nanoblading, except the ink-pigment procedure (between $500 and $2,000) does not penetrate as deeply into the skin. This causes the desired effect—the appearance of thick, full eyebrows—to fade away more quickly, which could be considered either a pro or con (depending on how you view your results).
- Applies realistic-looking brow hairs
- Gives the appearance of thicker brows
- Recommended for patients with very little eyebrow hair
- May stimulate natural hair growth
- Usually limited to dry skin types
- Not recommended for sensitive skin
- Not recommended for pregnant or breast-feeding patients
- Not recommended for someone with a lot of natural eyebrow hair
- Lasts up to only 12 months
- Uses larger needles than nanoblading
- Results in more bleeding
