Brows frame your face and the eyes –especially now that we all wear facemasks– are the first thing people look at when they meet you. So for those who have lost their eyebrows or thinned them down due to overplucking, there is hope.
Eyebrows are the focal point of the face and frame your eyes and cheek area, if you are one of us who have spent years thinning them down, you can consider an eyebrow transplant. It is ideal for people who have over-tweezed their brows, have lost them due to genetics or aging, but it won’t particularly work for people who suffer from alopecia or an autoimmune disease.
How does an eyebrow transplant work?
While people might turn to an eyebrow transplant because of injury, trauma or because of other skin conditions, the most common reason for getting a brow transplant is excessive tweezing.
It works like any other hair transplant, but the hairs are inserted at a sharper angle to create a natural look, as opposed to coming straight up and out.
While in the past tissue was taken from the scalp and placed on the area needed to treat, it looked quite unnatural. Modern techniques involve the transfer of single hairs to make it look more natural. The entire process takes about three or four hours.
Expect to be prescribed antibiotics, painkillers and oral steroids after the procedure. You might experiment some swelling and some bruising, but it is very easy to tolerate. It is extremely necessary to keep the area dry for five to seven days. Don’t worry if some hairs fall out, because they will regrow slowly in 3 or four months.
The best about this procedure is that the hair continues to grow, you can trim it regularly and it is preferable to microblading.
