-Those who want to save time from daily makeup application.
What is the difference between Nanoblading and Microblading?
Despite the name, neither nanoblading or microblading utilizes a blade. Nanoblading creates the finest hair strokes with the least amount of skin trauma. It has minimal to no bleeding, faster healing time, miminal scabbing, longer lasting results, and is siutable for all skin types. It is considerably less invasive as it uses a digital machine to implant pigment rather than manually cutting into the skins dermis layer.
Does the procedure hurt?
Although perceptions of pain are highly subjective, every effort to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of your appointment is in place. This includes a topical anesthetic cream and gel are used to numb before and during the procedure. I also use a elevating knee wedge to help reduce back strain and pressure. Please keep in mind, if you are on your menstrual cycle, you will be sensitive to pain.
