How eyebrow Microblading works at LuLu Beauty Lounge in Ann Arbor:
In this procedure, a pigment is inserted under your skin in an artistic and meticulous style. Unlike regular tattooing, the pigment is applied manually and carefully implanted by a hand-held micro blade device.
How long will it last?
Eyebrow Microblading is semi-permanent, meaning it will fade out with time. It will last between 1 to 3 years, depending on how you take care of your brows and how your skin retains the pigment.
What to expect...
Because you’re already thinking of getting your brows microbladed, here are a few guidelines on what to expect and what you can do to prepare.
Avoid certain products: If you drink a little bit more alcohol than you’d care to admit, or use retinol or aspirin, you’ll need to stop at least a week before the procedure. These products act as blood thinners, meaning you’ll bleed a little more than usual. But if you eliminate these products, there should be minimum blood loss; you most likely won’t even feel a thing.

Don’t rush it: Microblading is a small procedure, but a procedure nonetheless. Make sure you’re not in a hurry when you come in for your appointment. A couple of hours should do just fine, and given you’ll have the beautiful brows for up to three years, it’s worth the wait.
