Eyebrow restoration is a unique specialty in itself and requires a lot of expertise. For starters, it is important to establish the causes of loss of eyebrows and ways of restoring eyebrows under different scenarios.
Some of the common causes of loss of eyebrows include:
There are two popular treatment options available for thinning eyebrows:
This has remained a very popular option for clients with thinning eyebrows.
This is becoming an increasingly popular option as the outcomes are getting significantly better.
There are two options available similar to a hair restoration surgery. The grafts needed to restore the eyebrows can be extracted using FUE or FUT (Strip) technique.
I personally prefer FUE as I can pick finer hair follicles from the back of the ears or the nape of the neck. Besides, I believe FUE is a lot less painful and the outcomes are much more predictable than in a strip surgery.
Most of the protocols applicable for hair restoration surgery apply to eyebrow restoration.
I prefer to extract the grafts from the back of the ears or the nape of the neck. This would yield grafts with finer hair to mimic those of the eyebrows. I prefer to use a 0.9 mm titanium tipped punch.
Once the grafts are extracted, local anaesthetic is administered to the eyebrows. The next step, incision making, is possibly the most important step and requires utmost attention to dictate the angles.
Once the incisions are made, I use a 0.8 mm choi implanter to replace the grafts.
The client is advised to spray the grafts with saline spray for 72 hours and once the 72 hours have passed, the client can treat their eyebrows like the rest of their hair.
The eyebrows go through phases of shedding and growth for around 6-9 months and by the end of 9 months, most clients notice 70-80 % of the transplanted hair grow through.
