Hair transplant can help an eyebrow scar

This would be a very small procedure but you can fill the scar area with transplanted hairs from your scalp. As mentioned below, cosmetic tattooing is also an option.

Eyebrow scar

An eyebrow hair transplant will fill in this scar and hide it nicely. This is delicate work for women who want feminine eyebrows

Scar Coverage

Unless the scar is new, it is very unlikely you'd be able to naturally regrow hair in that spot. The most realistic looking option would be to have a small hair transplant, to manually place working hair follicles in the scar. Micropigmentation could also work to camouflage the area, though the area won't actually have hairs there.

Try Follicular Micro-Pigmentation

Hello, Maegano21.

The first thing that comes to my mind that can help you cover that scar is Follicular Micro-Pigmentation. With Scalp Micro Pigmentation treatment, pigment is used on the scalp to create the appearance of real hair follicles adding the appearance of density to thinning areas and covering unsightly scars. The appearance is so realistic that it actually looks like you have hair.

Other option would be to have hair transplanted into the scar, but the outcome is not always the best because scar tissue has very limited blood supply and makes it hard for hair to grow. However, it is still an option if you want the more natural result.

Best of lucks!!!

Options for Eyebrow scars

There are several options for improving the appearance of eyebrow scars. These are broadly classified as medical, surgical and cosmetic.

1. Medical options

Medical (pharmacological) options are generally not very effective for most people. One can consider using minxodiil or bimatoprost (Latisse) and seeing if any benefit can come about. If the scar is relatively recent this coukd help.


2. Surgical options

Hair transplantation is a fairly good option for eyebrow scars that are small and thin. It is not a great option for thick scars. Hair is typcially removed from the back of the scalp (donor hair) and placed in the eyebrow. Donor hair may also include the nape of the neck, beard area (men) as well as the body. The survival of transplanted hairs is unpredictable for many patients. In other words, the procedure may be a tremendous success and rarely a tremendous failure. Generally, hair transplants works fairly well in small thin scars and a good outcome is likely for yhe majority. Sometimes a small touch up session is needed as well about 6-9 months later in areas that did not completely take up hairs.

3. Camouflaging Options

Camouflaging options with microblading and the many variations of tattooing and micropigmentation are generally successful as well. This is a very good option for small scars. The success and naturalness depends on the pigments used as well as the skill of the tatoo artist. But for small scars, this too should be considered.


Conclusion

Eyebrow scarring is something that is commonly encountered. Injuries to this area of the face are quite common through life. Medical, surgical and cosmetic options are available for the scar.
