Microblading's Big Sister...
The Nano Brow technique here in Virginia Beach, VA is a method of designing hyper real eyebrows strokes with a PMU machine vs a needle based manual hand tool. The ending results are crisper longer lasting hair strokes, for a variety of skin types including oilier skin.
The process is a a slower more controlled method of using a PMU machine to re create hair like strokes in a pattern that still mimics natural hair growth patterns. So expect your appointment to last a little longer than our Microblading appointment.
We do use a topical anesthetic to lessen discomfort, but some scratching may be felt. Everyone's pain threshold is different whether you're getting Nano Brows or Microblading. We do our best to keep discomfort to a minimum.
Because we are now using a PMU machine to create the hair like strokes your eyebrows may appear darker than when done with Microblading. But no worries, your strokes will heal into a softer natural final look. Aftercare protocols are similar as with Microblading, but some scabbing may occur, which is normal.

Please choose your Microblading artist wisely. As this service becomes more popular there are many stylists who have not been properly trained or licensed, doing it only for the money and do not have the experience to provide this service professionally.
I have been inundated with emails asking if I can fix Microblading 'gone wrong', or going over another artists 'not so good job'. This is very challenging to do...best advice I can give is to choose your stylist wisely.
Experience, and passion matter...especially when it comes to a service on your face!
Consultation, Custom Brow Mapping, & shape designed for your facial features and your preference. Until January 1st 2022, Your 4-6 week touch up is included, normally $150
Maintenance Sessions 3 months+
Refreshing of your Nano Brows and strokes if you've had a hybrid brow set done.
Maintenance is different for every client. It is HIGHLY recommended that you return for your 4-6 week appointment so that we may build upon the initial faded pigment, and perfect your shape and color.
Some clients may require a touch up within the first 6 months...while others will not require a touch up until 18+ months.
Microblading deposits pigment into the epidermal/dermal junction layers of the skin. Your skin's ability to hold and retain the pigment and other factors such as strictly following aftercare, appropriate skincare, spf usage, age/genetics and exfoliation will determine your maintenance needs. And also determine your healed results, which cannot be controlled by your artist.
Every client is different, and no two results are the same!
Please understand your results may not look like ANY of the pictures here because your unique face is different from every other person. But I do my absolute best to give you the most beautiful brows for your face.
***All appointments require a non-refundable reservation fee which is applied to your scheduled appointment. Reschedules will apply your deposit.***
Please see the What to Expect Information below...Keep Scrolling!
What to expect when getting PMU Eyebrow Services like Nano Brows.
DO NOT expect your brow strokes to heal perfectly after the first session. This is a 2 sometimes multiple step process. It takes time, and it's important to keep this in mind when deciding to have Microblading done. See You Should Know Page!
BE PATIENT during your 4-8 week healing process your brows will change and appear different from day to day, THIS IS NORMAL. Your brows may heal differently in different areas of the brow...this too is Normal.
Immediately after your procedure your brows will appear darker and more defined and this may last up to 5 days . Your brows may also be tender the day of the service. They may also appear more solid, strokes may seem to disappear and it may look wet and painted on. THIS IS NORMAL.
Around days 4-5 you may or may not experience scabbing and your brows may look dry and flakey. DO NOT PICK your scabs, keep applying the Brow Balm or an approved natural oil and let them fall off naturally. If scabbing gets picked off prematurely missing stokes will result and cause patchy brows.
Your brow strokes will take up to 4-6 weeks to fully heal. During the first 2-3 weeks the hair strokes may seem faint this is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over your brows. Give your brows another week or so and the hair strokes will in most cases re-emerge.
You may experience itchiness in the brows after 10 days for up to 2 months due to the healing process of the epidermal layers. Adding the Brow Balm or coconut oil may relieve this itchiness.
Not everyone's hairstroke brows will heal clean and crisp. Hairstrokes for oilier skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined. Also those who are heavy bleeders, or smokers may need more touchups.
