Eyebrow Hair Loss Treatment Options

You may not realize it, but eyebrows define your face. They are also a telling indicator of age. So when you begin to notice hair loss, it can be discouraging. While there are effective treatment options available, it’s a good idea to speak with your primary care physician first, to rule out any medical conditions. Underlying medical conditions may cause hair loss treatments to be unsuccessful.

Reasons for eyebrow hair loss

There are many reasons why people may experience eyebrow hair loss, including:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Alopecia areata (uncommon)
  • Insufficient protein, vitamins and iron
  • Rubbing the eyebrows
  • Aging
  • Excessive plucking
  • Anxiety

Effective eyebrow hair loss treatment options

If you’re looking for a permanent solution to your eyebrow hair loss, you have different options, such as:

  • Eyebrow hair transplant
    An eyebrow hair transplant is a meticulous process that requires each transplanted air follicle lie flat against the skin and in the natural growth direction of the other hairs of the eyebrow. Donor hair is typically extracted from the back of the scalp or just behind the ears using a micro-surgical instrument. You can return home the same day as your procedure, however, it may take up to seven days to completely heal. There are two types of eyebrow hair transplants, depending on the amount of hair loss and/or desired result:

    • Partial eyebrow graft
      A partial eyebrow graft requires between 100 and 200 individual hairs to achieve a well-shaped, smooth eyebrow.
    • Full eyebrow graft
      A full eyebrow graft required between 200 and 400 individual hairs.
  • Microblading
    One of the newest trends in eyebrow hair loss is microblading. Microblading uses a handheld tool that essentially tattoos your skin to create an illusion of thicker eyebrows.
