Nano Needling VS Microblading

What is micro blading and nano needling? 


They are both techniques in which pigment is deposited beneath the surface of the skin to create the illusion of single hair strokes. 


What is the difference between microblading and nano needling?


Microblading involves the use of a fine blade or multiple fine blades to deposit pigment beneath the skin ,whereas nano needling uses an ultra fine precision needle with the aid of a cosmetic machine.


Is the procedure painful? 


A topical numbing cream is applied to the brows prior to the treatment and most clients report either no or minimal discomfort. 


Similarities between Microblading and Nano Needling: 


Both methods give the illusion of fine ,natural and realistic hair strokes. 

Both use pigment instead of ink. 

Both processes are customizable to your desired brow shape, colour, thickness, and arch to compliment your facial features. 

Both will eventually fade over time. 



Differences between Microblading and Nano Needling: 


Nano needling results are much less likely to blur over time and remain much more crisp, clear, and natural looking. 


Nano needling is the latest in semi-permanent eyebrow technology. It uses the smallest needle in the industry (0.18mm) to deposit pigment slightly deeper under the skin, therefore the results are longer lasting and require fewer touch ups (if any). 

Nano needling is performed with the aid of a cosmetic machine and therefore allows the pigment to be deposited more evenly and is a much cleaner process than microblading (less bleeding, reduced risk of scaring, faster healing time, less flaking, ect. )


Microblading is a manual procedure done with a blade and depending on the pressure used by the technician, the pigment can be implanted too deep or not deep enough. Microblading often requires 3-4 touch ups and can last 1-3 years. 

Nano Needling lasts between 3-5 years and usually requires only 1 touch up (although a color boost may be necessary depending on the clients skin).
