Just like skinny leg jeans and bell bottoms take turns being the trendy thing, so do thin and bushy brows. The problem is, if you live through a time when thin brows are in, you may struggle when thick brows take the stage. That’s because years of waxing and plucking can inhibit your brows’ ability to grow.
Although most people think of male pattern baldness when they hear the phrase “hair restoration,” the fact is that Dr. Dana Brownell and her staff at NeoGraft Hair Restoration can help with just about any kind of hair loss, including sparse eyebrows.
If you’ve resorted to makeup in an effort to make your eyebrows appear fuller, there’s a better way. Eyebrow restoration can help you ditch the makeup and get your old brows back.
Brow restoration is sometimes referred to as an eyebrow transplant, which may conjure images of removing the brows of one person and grafting them to another’s face. But that’s not how it works at all!
An eyebrow transplant at NeoGraft Hair Restoration involves removing individual follicles from one part of your body — usually behind your ear or on the back of your neck — and placing them in exactly the right places on your brows.
Each follicle grows a hair, and by moving them one at a time, intact, they’re more likely to survive the transplantation and thrive in their new role as perfect eyebrows.
The NeoGraft difference
Eyebrow restoration works very similarly to any other hair restoration. We use a process called follicular unit extraction (FUE), which means removing and transplanting individual follicles, rather than a strip of skin containing many follicles.
We use the NeoGraft FUE system, which is much faster and causes far less damage to the follicles.
The art of brow restoration
Eyebrows are so important to your appearance! They frame your face and contribute to your expressiveness more than many people realize. It takes more than technical skill to provide superior eyebrow restoration.
Dr. Brownell uses a special program to create a brow blueprint with you before your procedure. You bring in photos of eyebrows you like, and she designs a restoration process to create the look you want.
What to expect after brow restoration
In the days after your procedure, your brows will scab over, but that’s perfectly normal. You may need to avoid vigorous exercise for some time, and you’ll notice the transplanted hairs fall out — but don’t worry! That’s normal, too.
It may take a few months for the hair in the transplanted follicles to grow back in, but when it does, your brows will be thick and full. You need to trim them periodically to maintain the length you want, and you should definitely avoid plucking or waxing.
