Move over microblading, there’s a new hot technique in town – nanoblading.
We’ve caught up with award-winning permanent makeup expert and industry pioneer Karen Betts to clear up the difference between Microblading and Nanoblading.
Recently there has been an influx of interest in ‘nanoblading’ as the new alternative to microblading, but so many people are still wondering what’s the difference? Is one better than the other?
Let’s get back to basics; microblading is a brow treatment that uses a handheld tool with ultra-fine pins that create a channel in the upper dermis of the skin, in which pigment can be implanted. There are different sizes, arrangements and flexibilities of pins. Despite the name, neither microblading or nanoblading utilises a blade.
Nanoblading is the new ‘it word’ for a brow treatment.’ says Karen Betts, award-winning permanent makeup expert. It is a unique technique, performed using specialist needles in the digital machine. The finest singular needle on the market allows full creative freedom for the artist performing the treatment. This needle used with our unique nanoblading technique results in the finest, defined yet fluffy looking hair-strokes that are comparable to that of the microblading strokes, and in some cases appear even more refined.
The world of permanent makeup is continually evolving and expanding, and given the popularity of not just brow treatments, but lip and eyeliner treatments too, it’s safe to say permanent makeup is bigger than ever in 2019. We’ve checked out permanent make up before and we are big fans of these treatments. The fact that you can wake up and your make up is there even when you wash and dry your face is amazing to us – we can’t get enough if it!
