BROW EXPERT AND EDUCATOR IN PMU
NanoBrows is a more safe, up-to-date, advanced version of microblading created by a machine technique using a nano-needle. A machine and nano-needle is used to create super fine hair strokes for a more flawless natural looking brow.
What makes Nanobrows different from Microblading?
•How the pigment is placed in the skin. Microblading is a line of microblades that you dip in pigment and drag through the skin. Nanobrows, similar to a conventional tattoo, the pigment is implanted into the skin using a poking motion.
•How much trauma is done to the skin. Dragging the blade through the skin creates a cutting effect. This damages the skin more as well as makes it hard for the pigment to grab the skin. The poking motion makes the pigment implant more as well as is less damaging.
•Who it works on. Microblading does not work on all skin types. You often hear how if someone has oily or mature skin, they are not a good candidate for Microblading(the stroke look). Thanks to Nanobrows, oily and mature skin types can get the stroke look. Reason for this is, you are basically taking a single needle and doing what is done with shading but with a nano needle and in a precise, concentrated stroke.
How long does Nano last?
Although skin type is a HUGE factor, how well they take care of their brows is just as big of a factor.
•Do they put sunscreen on their brows every day?
•Do they wear a hat when they are going to be outdoors all day?
•Are they using facial products with acids in them over their brow area?
NanoBrows will last between 1-3 years, before needing a touch up, depending on:
•Your clients skin type
• How your client maintains your semi-permanent technique
NanoBrows will last 3-5 years until it fades completely, if done correctly. In more oily skin types, the treatment may not last a full year before needing a touch up. In other skin types it can exceed 5 years.
Is Nanobrows Right For You?
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING APPOINTMENT!!
The most important part is finding the right artist. You want someone you can trust! Someone who isn't just trying to make money off you when they know you aren't going to get good results. It is important to determine whether your skin is fit and ready to be tattooed and you know your skin better than anyone. From sensitivity to the condition and quality of your skin, a lot goes into the safety and effectiveness of the microblading/NanoBrows process. As an artist, my goal is always to ensure that you receive the best possible results from your treatment. I will continue to further my education to try to accomadate as many people as I can. But the reality is not everyone is fit for microblading. This is heavily reliant on your skin being healthy, strong, and calm. Unfortunately, pre-existing skin conditions and skin treatments can heavily compromise the effectiveness of microblading, leaving both you and I in an unfavorable situation. So, before you go ahead and book your appointment, read the pointers below to find out if microblading is for you. But no stress if it is not! I now offer another service that almost anyone can do!

Skin ConditionS (Face Only)
Skin Complications - If you have skin which is prone to complications with eczema, psoriasis, chronic acne, rosacea and Seborrhoeic dermatitis (i.e., your skin is constantly flaking, itching, or aggravated in the brow area), chances are your skin is in a constant state of irritation and shedding and is not suitable for tattooing and your skin won’t hold the pigment more than 7 days.
Sunburn - If you are hoping to get microblading done but have gotten a sunburn, it’s best to wait until your skin has resumed it's normal colour and wait until your skin has healed before coming in for a procedure.
Previous Permanent Makeup - Always disclose if you’ve had previous permanent makeup so the artist can treat you accordingly. We will need to do an in person consultation. Some permanent make up treatments are too dark and can not be covered with microblading cause there will be no contrast and you will not be able to see the hair strokes. If this is you don't worry there is still hope! Click for more information. Some can be done with shading if you would like a thicker better shape. If the old permanent make up is faded enough we may be able to go over it with a darker colour and get a desired effect. But if you have scar tissue you may need NanoBrows to get it to stay.
Medications - Accutane/Retin-A: Individuals who have been taking acne medications such as Accutane within the last year will not heal well after the procedure. It’s very important that you wait a year before tattooing the skin. Similarly, Retinol and Vitamin A users should discontinue the use of each a month prior to their procedure. Latisse - Eyelash and eyebrow growth serum bring extra blood flow to the area resulting in more growth of hair/lashes. Do not underestimate the power of these products! If you have been using Latisse or any other eyelash or eyebrow growth conditioners, the skin in that area is in a hypersensitive state and will bleed easily. Be mindful to discontinue using these in the brow area for at least 1-2 months before going in for a session otherwise you will instantly bleed profusely and you will not be happy with your result.
Medical Conditions - Hair Transplant - A commonly unknown fact is that scar tissue will form within the eyebrow transplant site. If you've had a hair transplant for your eyebrows, microblading is not a suitable procedure for you. Irregular State - If your body naturally runs hot or you have a bleeding disorder, this will result in excess bleeding and prevent adequate color deposit. Autoimmune - Even more seriously, if you have an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, Thyroid problems that require medications, or frontal fibrosing alopecia, you should tell your artist so they can explain risks.
Other Conditions - If you are pregnant, nursing, have hemophilia, a heart condition, it is absolutely not recommended that you get any form of permanent make up done as this puts you in a high-risk position. People who have heart issues often are on medications that thin the blood which will cause excessive bleeding a poor results with microblading. it is also required that you het a doctors note if you have Diabetes.
Other Considerations you may have missed....Botox- it is best to get Microblading done 30 days BEFORE or AFTER you get botox so your muscles will be in a normal state of movement. Alternatively, if you regularly use botox, you will need to keep up on your botox to keep the same shape.
IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH CONDITIONS I ASK THAT YOU GET A DOCTORS NOTE SAYING IT IS OK TO GET THE PROCEDURE DONE! THIS IS YOUR FACE WE ARE DEALING WITH! SEND ME A MESSAGE BELOW AND I WILL SEND YOU ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE TREATMENT THAT YOUR DOCTOR WILL NEED TO KNOW.
