There are many reasons why our eyebrows become thinner – age, hypothyroidism, eczema, or vitamin deficiencies are just a few. Over the years there have been few options of replacing them – penciling, powders or tattooing – but now we have choices.
Eyebrow transplant – similar to the hair transplant, the eyebrow transplant takes a strip of hair from the back of the head of the donor (you). They remove the hair follicles from the skin and then transplant them into small incisions made in the eyebrows. New hair will grow on average between 2-3 months after the procedure. As always, do your homework before paying just anyone to perform this intricate procedure.
Latisse – known for growing eyelashes, Latisse will also promote growth in the brow region. Apply daily and you’ll be seeing results in 3-4 weeks.
Eyebrow extensions – tiny hairs (either real or synthetic) are glued directly onto eyebrow hairs or to the skin to fill in gaps and thicken the eyebrows. This is very similar to eyelash extensions and lasts 7-14 days. Available on-line or in salons.
Eyebrow wigs – or lace front eyebrows. Hairs are sewn into a lace-like material and then are glued over your brow. Available on-line, in salons or view YouTube for a DIY eyebrow wig.
Until next time….
