Nano Brows - The Modern Way To Get Soft Natural Looking Fluffy Eyebrows

Date of Publish: 2024-03-27

Are you interested in getting PMU, semi permanent make-up eyebrows, but you might not be an ideal candidate for Microblading? Do you want fill in scars, missing hairs or thin eyebrows for a thicker lush natural appearance? Then Iconbrows Nano Brows may just be the solution for you.

What are Nano Brows?

Nano Brows is the latest PMU technique available where instead of using a handheld blade to individually inject small amounts of pigment into the upper layer of the eyebrow skin tissue, you instead use a handheld machine with a very small needle to do controlled injection of the pigment into the upper layer of the eyebrow skin tissue to create fine hair-like designs.


Nano Brows have many advantages with an experienced PMU artist doing them; such as perfect lines that can be drawn effortlessly on the skin, reduced risk of scarring, high quality beautiful designs.

What is the difference between Microblading and Nano Brows?

  • Microblading is a PMU technique where we use a collection of around 10-16 fine needles configured into a blade shape to carefully cut into the skin to add pigment, creating detailed lines and shapes that gives you natural-looking designed eyebrows.

  • Nano Brows are done by using a machine with a single fine needle to carefully add pigment into the eyebrow skin tissue with a rotating upwards and downwards movement of the needle. It is similar to that of a tattoo machine but no where as deep and painful as a traditional tattoo. Nano Brows are only done on numbed upper-layer of the skin-tissue and start fading away after a few years unlike tattoos that are done deeper to remain on the skin for decades. Nano Brows also have a faster healing time compared to Microblading, as there is less direct contact with the skin.

At Iconbrows we are Experts in all PMU techniques. If you have a skin-type that is not suitable for Microblading, we could recommend Nano Brows instead. If you want a more finer line eyebrow design, then Nano Brows is recommended over Microblading. But both techniques are great if you are looking for a service that gives you eyebrows with a natural look.

The best service that gives you hyper-realistic eyebrows will be our own Iconbrows Fusion Brows, which brings the beauty of individual hair-like lines from Microblading with the depth and fullness of Microshading giving you the perfect eyebrows.

What should I know before deciding between Microblading or Nano Brows?

If you are looking for natural-looking eyebrows that fill and fix some issues you have with your eyebrows such as missing hairs, scars or thinning, or if you simply are tired of drawing in your eyebrows every morning and want to sleep longer during your morning routine? Then both options are great for you. The real difference between the two options are determined by your skin-type and if you wish to have softer brows with Nano Brows or more defined lines with Microblading.

How long do Nano Brows last?

Generally, Nano Brows last between 2-5 years. Please note that results vary depending on the client's skin type, aftercare and lifestyle. Each client will react differntly to the pigment. Some skin types retain pigments better than others but on average most clients need a touch-up session every 12-24 months to maintain the shape and color.

Is the Nano Brows procedure painful?

Most of our clients feel no pain, some even fall asleep during the procedure because we use a high quality ecological friendly localized topical anesthetic to ensure your eyebrow skin is sterilized and numb before we start. At most you may feel some pressure, pressure and mild pricking sensation.
