Eyebrows play a big role in not only to make us look good but also help us to show facial expressions. If your eyebrows don’t have the thickness you want or suffer from hair loss in the eyebrow region, advanced treatments are there to restore eyebrows. Micro-blading, PRP, eyebrow pigmentation, and eyebrow transplant are commonly used methods of restoring hair in the eyebrow area. All these methods have different effects. Micro-blading involves injecting pigment into the brow area to create an illusion of hair.
Today, we will focus on eyebrow transplant as a method to restore eyebrow hair and how to manage eyebrows after the treatment. What makes eyebrow transplant one of the best methods to treat hair loss is giving the patient lifelong full hair. Hair loss in the eyebrow area may be due to genetics, an accident, over-plucking, or a form of hair loss. Whatever causes hair thinning in the eyebrow area, the most effective way to restore eyebrows is to have an eyebrow transplant.
How an Eyebrow Transplant is Done
Getting an eyebrow restoration is the simplest cosmetic treatment, requiring a few hours in the doctor’s office. The technique is also safe and offers a permanent solution to eliminate hair loss in the eyebrow area. Before moving hair follicles to the brow area, the doctor will first shave the donor area and apply local anesthesia. Anesthesia helps relieve pain when the surgeon removes hair follicles and implants them in the brow area. The procedure is done the same way as the hair transplant. However, since the area that needs hair grafts is pretty small, the area above the ear is enough to provide hair follicles. In hair transplant surgery, the back of the scalp serves as a good donor area.
The FUE hair transplant method is used to remove hair from the donor area since it is quite small. Follicles are removed one by one and implanted in the brow area. Since small punching needles that cut around each follicle are used, no visible scars are left in the donor area, nor the recipient area—the surgeon doing this treatment brings thickness by placing each hair follicle closer to one another.
Eyebrow Restoration Aftercare Management
Taking proper care of the area that gave or received hair follicles ensures that the outcome is good. Taking good care of these two areas also helps prevent infections so that healing will take place fast.
- The patient needs to avoid touching the eyebrow for a few days to avoid infection
- To heal quicker, the patient needs to spray the brow area with saline follicle
- The patient needs to wash his or her face 24 after the treatment with prescribed shampoo
- The patient also needs to avoid rubbing the brow area after the surgery or treatment
When getting an eyebrow transplant or any other kind of hair loss treatment such as an eyebrow pigmentation, the aftercare will determine the procedure’s outcome. If you have pre-existing medical conditions, it is good to first consult your doctor and share this information.
