The Big Problem With Nano Brows And Why You May Be Struggling to Get the Best Healed Results

Updated: Jan 20

Many times we are privileged to see so many amazing nano brow transformations performed by some of the most talented PMU artists showcasing their work on social media.

As admirers of the beautiful work there tends to be a number of questions related to how the artists achieved such fabulous results. Questions around the types of needles, pigments, PMU machine and even speed are typically asked.

While those are great initial questions, the most important question that should be asked is how did the nano work heal in the client's skin?

Achieving the best healed results with nano brows requires attention to detail and a personalized approach. In this article, we will delve into some secrets to creating stunning, long-lasting nano brows that can help you in case you're healed results aren't coming back exactly like you'd want them. Below are a few things to consider that you could be doing wrong.

1. Beware of Pigment Overload

Pigment overload is a real concern and can lead to blotchy results that nobody wants. To prevent this, be mindful of the amount of pigment you use. It's essential to strike a balance between saturation and subtlety, and this can vary from client to client. When in doubt, start with less pigment and build up if necessary.

If you've had issues with pigment overload, take the time to perfect your technique, and consider seeking additional training to improve your skills.

2. Your Spacing Is All Wrong!

Proper spacing between nano brow strokes is crucial. If strokes are placed too closely, they can blend together during the healing process, leading to less defined and uneven results. To avoid this, ensure there is enough negative space between each stroke. Take the time to measure and plan the spacing carefully to give your clients the best possible outcome.

3. You're Taking a One Size Fits All Approach!

Becoming a master of nano brows and achieving the best-healed results involves more than technique. It's about adapting and customizing your approach to each client's unique needs:

No two clients are the same, and no technique should be one-size-fits-all. If you've found yourself following a generic approach, it's time to change that. Don't rely solely on the machine speed your instructor used; your hand speed may differ. Adapt your machine speed (higher or lower) to match your hand's natural rhythm and the desired result. Learning to adjust and customize your approach is key to achieving stunning healed results.


In your journey to becoming a nano brow expert, always remember these three fundamental points for achieving the best-healed results: watch your pigment use, ensure proper spacing, and be adaptable in your approach. By mastering these aspects, you can provide your clients with the beautiful, long-lasting nano brows they desire while also growing your reputation and business.

As you continue to learn and innovate in the world of permanent makeup, you'll be on the path to success.
