Dr. Edwin Suddleson, Bosley Assistant Medical Director, explains that most women lose their eyebrows from over-plucking, some because their eyebrow hair has fallen out but everyone loses hair with age.
Permanent eyebrow restorations can involve a touch-up, enhancement or full eyebrow restoration.
It comes as no surprise that the same micro-technology and follicular unit transplantation used in scalp hair restoration is used in the permanent restoration of eyebrows with equally natural results.
An eyebrow touch-up typically involves 50-100 grafts and are for those who have small areas of hair loss due to over-plucking, genetic causes, and scars.
A typical eyebrow enhancement ranges from 101-199 grafts per procedure. Most patients are satisfied with a single procedure though if both patient and doctor agree that it would be beneficial, a touch-up can be done later.
A full eyebrow restoration is for those who have almost no brow hair. Kelly Becker who was born with no brow hair, was embarrassed and self-conscious about how she looked. She resorted to heavy pencil application, but the results for Kelly were unnatural and unsatisfying so she opted for a permanent solution, eyebrow restoration with Bosley Medical. Kelly’s story has been told on The Tyra Banks Show.
A typical full brow restoration ranges from 200 or more total grafts per procedure with most finding that one procedure is sufficient. View the Bosley before and after gallery of eyebrow touch-ups, full restorations and enhancements.
