Insights About Nano Combo Brows

What the Heck are Nano Combo Brows?

Nano combo brows are a form of permanent makeup where both the microblading technique and powder/shading are combined. This technique is great for those who have sparse eyebrows, little to no hair, or those who simply want to add definition to their eyebrows and arch. Thrive Aesthetics, in Nairobi, Kenya is proud to offer nano combo brows services and other eyebrow services.

Combo Brows allow us to create an illusion of eyebrows hairs and soft powder that resembles a natural makeup look. Those with previous eyebrow tattoos or microblading must email a photo for approval prior to scheduling a service.


What’s The Difference Between Nano Combo Brows and Combo Brows/Powder Brows?

The main difference between nano combo brows and combo brows is the equipment used. For combo brows, a manual microblading tool is used to create strokes that mimic your natural eyebrows. For the nano combo option, a nanomachine is used to create these strokes. The advantage the nano combo has over the regular combo brows is;

  1. The result lasts longer
  2. Works just as well on oily skin individuals, unlike the combo brows which are most suitable for dry – normal skin individuals.


How Do You Prepare For a Nano Combo Brow Appointment?

If you have an ideal shape or color in mind, bring those reference photos with you to your appointment. You may also fill in your eyebrows as you normally would to share your desired outcome. If you regularly get your eyebrows waxed or threaded, please do so 72 hours before your service.

We ask clients to avoid any blood thinning medications for a minimum of 72 hours prior to the appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, Advil, and Ibuprofen. Tylenol is okay.
  • No working out the day of your appointment.
  • No Alcohol drinks 24-48 hours prior to your service.
  • No caffeine 24 hours prior to your service.
  • No Botox, fillers, or chemical peel facials within 4 weeks
It is highly advised that you avoid sun and tanning bed exposure for 30 days before and after your treatment. If you show up for your appointment with a recent tan or sunburn, you will be asked to reschedule resulting in a loss of deposit. Excessive sun exposure before and/or after your treatment may cause the eyebrows to fade into a lighter ashy hue.

What Are The Side Effects of The Procedure?

Immediately following the appointment, the pigmented area will appear to be dark, slightly bold in color and more sharply defined. Do not apply any cosmetics in this area for 7-10 days. If your skin starts to feel tight/dry around day 3-4, you may use a small amount of aftercare ointment provided to you. Oily skin clients are asked to blot the eyebrow area every 2-3 hours with blotting paper until fully healed. Please be sure to follow all aftercare instructions provided to you.

During the healing period, there should be minimal flaking of the skin. If there is some flaking, please do not pick, pull or rub. Allow the flakes to come off on their own. This process can take up to 2 weeks.

IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared or lightened. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

The complete healing process takes approximately 6 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften/lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost. Keep in mind that the skin regenerates between 18-45 days, your skin will need time to fully heal. Be sure to follow up with your 6-8 week touch up.


What’s The Recovery Period?

The surface symptoms of the nano brows healing process should subside within 10 – 14 days. However, the internal healing takes a few more weeks to heal (4-5 weeks).
