Nano brows require at least 2 visits. The first one is the treatment itself, while the second one is the mandatory touch-up appointment. Some artists charge for the touch up additionally, but since it’s mandatory, you can look at both sessions as a single expense.
Further touch ups are charged a separate price – the older the tattoo, the higher the price.
It’s important to note that the consultation with the artist is usually included in the price, but some salons may charge additionally. Check with your artist before booking if this information isn’t clearly stated on their website.
Detailed aftercare instructions are always included in the nano brow cost, and in most cases, so is an aftercare kit.

The nano brow cost depends on many factors. Here are the main ones:
The most important factor is the exclusivity of your artist and the salon. Well-known, experienced artists charge more than beginners and less famous artists. Remember that certified artists always charge more than uncertified ones who usually perform the treatment illegally – and this is highly justified.
The demand for the treatment also affects the price. In areas where the demand is huge, you can expect higher prices, but there are no rules. To get a better sense of nanoblading eyebrows cost, check out the results of PMUHub’s research in the chart above.
If there are many salons in your city or town, you can expect a wider price range. If there are only a handful of artists doing quality work, they’ll probably charge more.
Another important factor is the quality of the supplies used. High-quality pigments assure longer retention and a more vivid color that won’t fade into unattractive shades of orange or bluish, but they may increase the nano brow cost.

Your skin type won’t affect the nanoblading price. However, you should know that oily skin doesn’t retain pigment as long as other skin types, so you might need more frequent touch ups, and the long-term cost could be higher.
The average prices of all brow PMU brow treatments are similar. When compared to microblading, nano brows are slightly more expensive.
Even though the nano brow cost may seem a bit steep at first glance, consider the fact that eyebrows are a prominent feature, so it’s not a great decision to try and save money on this.
That said, it’s important to find an artist who does quality work without overpricing it. The best strategy is to compare prices from several salons in your area and go for an artist who charges somewhere around the average price.
Consult the price chart above. Chances are, PMUHub has already worked out the average microshading cost in your city.
Choosing a good, experienced artist is crucial to getting satisfactory results, but also to keeping you safe and healthy. That’s why you should never go to a self-taught, uncertified artist, although their low price might be tempting.
Once you find your artist, do a bit of research – take a look at their before and after portfolio, read their reviews, and contact them only once you’re sure you trust them.

Once you find your artist and book your initial treatment, promise yourself that you will follow the aftercare instructions to the letter. Unless you follow them carefully, your results might fade prematurely, which means that you will spend more money on extra touch-up appointments, and you might feel that paying the nano brow cost wasn’t worth it.
You also risk an infection.
Your artist will provide you with detailed information, but the basics come down to staying away from direct sun, not getting your brows soaking wet repeatedly, and not picking at them during the healing process.

Nano brows cost might seem high at first, but when you consider all the benefits of semi-permanent makeup and the confidence boost so many people get from it, it could actually end up being a way to save money, a lot of time and nerves.
If you decide to go for it, do thorough research on the artist you’re considering, and don’t automatically go for the cheaper ones. The deciding factor should primarily be the skill of the artist and the quality of their work.
