Once we have extracted the required amount of hair, we transplant individual follicular units in the desired areas, to restore bald areas and create a natural-looking eyebrow. It is very important that your transplanted hairs for your eyebrows are done in a way that harmonizes well with your eyes. Once we harvest the hair we will also make sure that is implanted at the right angle to replicate original growth. Because the transplanted hair will come from the back of the head, it also requires us to match natural colour of the area being transplanted. These hairs will initially grow faster and will require trimming for the 1st year or two.
1. micro pigmentation: using organic pigment (that can fade over a course of 3-5 years and will need retouching) a similar look to the picture on the right you have attached can be created. There are limitations to this technique and generally 2-3 sessions are needed to create the perfect brow.
2. Transplantation: artistry in this procedure key in design and angulation of your new brow. Growth begins at the 2nd month post procedure and in about 6 months you will have 50% of your results. The first year, you will need to trim your brows twice weekly, then once weekly the second year. By the end of the second year, trimming will be needed once every few weeks.
If you have no eyebrow hairs, you may be a good candidate for eyebrow transplant surgery.
