Can makeup powder to darken eyebrow hairs starting from 1 month post op (before hairs were shedding) ruin an eyebrow transplant?

Eyebrow transplant, 2 months and 3 weeks post op, not seeing any improvement from when I started the procedure, please help

Eyebrow transplants typically start sprouting hair at  2-4 months.  In the meantime, topical power-based makeup is perfectly acceptable at this point.

Best of luck!

Post-Op Eyebrow Transplant

In an eyebrow transplant you will most times not see any new hair growth until between months 3 and 4. So don't panic, I am sure they will start to sprout any week now. Makeup powder used after 1 month post-op will not affect the transplant either.
