How Can I Cover My Missing Eyebrows?
The overplucking of eyebrows causes bald patches in the affected area with random stray hairs – basically, sparse brows. It simply makes it challenging to regrow the full brows that were originally there.
Although many women successfully styled pencil-thin eyebrows, the trend for big and bushy eyebrows quickly came around.
This left women, who fell victim to the ‘90s trend, looking for the best eyebrow treatment. Therefore, many women used a brow pencil, brows powder and eyebrow pomades to create the illusion of fuller, thicker eyebrows at home. But there is a permanent solution.
What are the different eyebrow treatments?
When searching the internet for the best eyebrow treatments, you will find many makeup techniques as well as surgical procedures.
The best eyebrow treatment comes down to whether you are looking to surgically put hair into your brows or whether you want a temporary solution.
Eyebrow treatment options include:
- Brow makeup
- Eyebrow microblading
- Eye brow tinting
- Eyebrow hair transplantation
- Brow lamination
- Eyebrow tattoos
- Eyebrow threading and waxing
- Brow growth serum
What Are the Most Natural Looking Eyebrow Treatments?
- Eyebrow Tinting
Tinting your eyebrows is a good temporary treatment to create the appearance of fuller looking brows. However, this method only lasts for a few months before you need to get them redone.
For fuller eyebrows, microblading (aka brow embroidery) has become an extremely popular eyebrow treatment. During this semi-permanent surgical process, very fine cuts are made in the brow area that mimics lines of eyebrow hair. Once these cuts are made, a dye is applied to the eyebrows which is left to sit for 20-30 minutes. Then it is wiped off to leave the individual lines that mimic eyebrow hair.
- Eyebrow Transplant
An eyebrow transplant is the most natural looking eyebrow treatment because it uses your own hairs. Using the FUE technique (which is used for modern hair transplants), hair from the back of your head is transplanted to your eyebrows. While the hairs on your head and on your eyebrows are structurally distinct from each other, once transplanted the hairs adapt to the region and grow naturally. In fact, you can choose your desired shape of the brows to frame your face. Also, you never need to go back for a touch up as it’s a one-time procedure.
Microblading vs. An Eyebrow Hair Transplant
Eyebrow embroidery (aka microblading eyebrows) is a relatively new eyebrow treatment. During the procedure, tattoo ink is pressed into microincisions in the eyebrow area made with a surgical blade. These hair-like strokes require yearly top-ups (or every 18 months) as they eventually fade.
Although brow embroidery achieves fantastic immediate results, the dye does smudge and fade over time. Also, due to all the micro-cuts made in the brows, the skin becomes scar tissue which causes damage to the existing hair follicles. Therefore, microblading can cause long-lasting damage which stops your hair from growing back.
- Eyebrow Hair Transplant
In contrast, eyebrow transplants insert hair follicles from the back of your head into your brows. The hairs are implanted in the precise direction of hair growth for a natural look. This eyebrow treatment basically puts new hairs into your brows to make them fuller, thus restoring the thicker eyebrows that have been lost. An eyebrow transplantation treatment is the only permanent solution that achieves brows with a natural texture and dimension. It’s a one-off procedure, performed by brow experts, that doesn’t require top-ups. Additionally, the results are far more natural due to the texture of the hair, compared to the flat results of tattooing.
How many grafts are needed for an eyebrow transplant?
The number of hair grafts needed for an eyebrow transplant treatment depends on the condition of the hair loss. Typically about 300 hair grafts are needed for each brow to achieve full brows. With an eyebrow treatment, you can achieve much more natural, thicker eyebrows than you can with micro-blading.
Does eyebrow transplant hair keep growing?
Because the brow hair implants are taken from your head, they continue to grow like head hair. Recipients of an eyebrow transplant tend to trim their brows every few days to maintain the desired brow shape. Therefore, if you want thicker eyebrows on a certain day then you can let them grow out a bit more.
Suitability for an eyebrow transplant
As there are some conditions where eyebrow hair cannot regrow due to alopecia or an accident, an eyebrow transplant can be the only solution for permanent brows. In consultation with one of our experts we can advise you on the suitability of an eyebrow transplant based on your individual circumstances.
This means that you can change the style of your brows whenever you like. Hence, many brow transplant patients use eyebrow lamination in the months following their brow treatment for the perfect shape.
What is eyebrow lamination?
Eyebrow lamination refers to the creating of the appearance of full, slicked-up brows with a glossy finish that’s seen in magazines and on social media. Using a shiny setting lotion the brow hairs are brushed vertically to achieve a fuller, natural brow. This is good after an eyebrow treatment because it helps to train your brow to maintain the desired direction of growth.
How Much Does an Eyebrow Treatment Cost in Turkey?
Your eyebrow transplant cost is determined with one of our consultants based on your individual needs. The price is then determined based on the number of grafts that need to be transplanted to achieve the desired look decided in conversation with your transplant specialist.
For women wanting to fill their sparse brows with hair, eyebrow transplant treatments are the best solution. Not only is it a one time procedure, but you achieve the natural texture and definition you once had – maybe even better than before!
These brows are basically “designer eyebrows” because you get to choose the exact desired shape and thickness you like.
