Microblading Vs nano-needling: which one is for you?

Both microblading and nano needling are forms of permanent makeup treatment that enhance your brows in a very similar end result. The procedure can create a “fake” brow or fill in your natural brow using tiny hair strokes that’s ideal for anyone looking for a more defined shape.


Microblading involves a small, sharp device of 10-16 fine needles, equipped with blade to penetrate pigment into the skin.  No machine is used here to make cuts; once the cuts are made manually by hand, pigment is deposited into the skin for a fraction of few minutes and anaesthetic is then applied to carry forward the treatment painlessly.

Nano needling is a procedure that uses conventional needle that’s a size of hair strand. This flexible device sits nearly 0.75mm outside the cartridge, where applying and adjusting speed and pressure can be done precisely to create the ideal hair stroke. It’s much cleaner and popular procedure to get precise and super fine hair strokes.

How long does it take to heal?

Both procedures are considered as an art form; technicians need at least 2 hours to complete the job. Give your technician enough time to their embroidery techniques, such as preparing for the eyebrows, drawing, and measuring, etc to get the brows you’ve always dreamed of. First ten days are to be dealt with carefully – no scratching or scabbing. Your brows get completely healed into the right skin color after a period of 3 to 4 weeks.  Nanoblading is less painful and offers more long-lasting effect than microblading.

In a nutshell

Both the treatments should be given similar skincare concerns, post the procedure. Both of them use a needling device to align the skin to make the products fully absorb. The main difference lies in the depth in which the needle deposits into the skin.  For example, nano needling penetrates till the upper layer, while micro microblading reaches the deep dermis of the epidermis. Nano-needling is best choice if you are concerned about dark areas or swelling, sagging skin, or wrinkles, and odd lines, while microblading could be your preferred choice, if you’re concerned about hypo-pigmentation, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, and deep acne scars.
