Your brows are central to your appearance. They frame your face, give you expression, and, for better or worse, are frequently part of beauty trends.
At NeoGraft Hair Restoration, Dr. Dana Brownell and her staff have helped many people who are unhappy with their brows, either due to over-plucking, dermatological conditions, or injury. There’s no denying that being unhappy with your eyebrows can have an enormous impact on how you feel about your appearance.
You don’t have to live with brows you dislike. And you don’t have to wake up each morning to the prospect of trying to draw on brows. We can help with highly effective NeoGraft® eyebrow restoration.
How eyebrow restoration works
There’s not much difference between eyebrow restoration and hair restoration, except, of course, that your eyebrows are on your face. You may have some trepidation about undergoing a procedure in such a visible area. And what does recovery entail?
Using a highly specialized procedure called NeoGraft, Dr. Brownell removes healthy hair follicles from an area of your scalp and places them precisely in the area you want them to grow: your brows. NeoGraft involves no scalpels or stitches — and you won’t have scarring, either.
The planning stage
Dr. Brownell brings her considerable skill and knowledge to the procedure. Beforehand, you and Dr. Brownell work together to create an image of how you want your brows to look. You’re encouraged to bring in photos of yourself before your brows were thinning or images of people with brows you would like to emulate.
We also extensively discuss your medical history. If you have a condition called trichotillomania, which involves obsessively plucking your own hair, you may not be a good candidate for eyebrow restoration. A few other conditions, such as a history of complications following cosmetic surgery, may make eyebrow restoration a poor fit for you.
Most of the time, though, once you’ve established your goal with Dr. Brownell, the procedure can go forward.
Eyebrow restoration is a careful process, but NeoGraft is a revolutionary method of performing it. We don’t use a scalpel to cut strips of skin, and you don’t need stitches after transplantation.
The NeoGraft process is called follicular unit extraction (FUE), and it’s extremely precise — removing individual hair follicles from the back part of your scalp. You can usually expect the procedure to take 2-3 hours.
After eyebrow restoration
Your brow area is likely to be swollen and red immediately after the procedure. But within a day or two, you’ll be able to tell how much fuller your eyebrows are.
Within a week or two, your new eyebrow hairs are likely to fall out. This is normal — sometimes called shock hair loss — and it’s not cause for alarm. Your new hair follicles remain intact from the FUE procedure, and the hair regrows in a few months.
Because the hair follicles are transplanted from your scalp, you need to trim them to the length of eyebrow hairs. You don’t, however, want to pluck them!
