A sure tale sign of aging in women is thinning of the eyebrows. Not only does the hair start to get thinner, but some brows nearly disappear and may turn gray. Some even stop growing in altogether. Any kind of hair loss is tough, especially for women, and with so many products or options available like eyebrow pencils and powders or hair restoration, how do you know what works and what looks most natural?

They say a woman’s feminine looks come from her eyebrows, so having fully expressive eyebrows is a simple way to turn back the clock. Eyebrow restoration uses the same techniques as hair restoration — a hair follicle is transplanted to enhance the appearance of a woman’s brows and reshape the contour of them, permanently. The procedure can be performed using one of two innovative methods. Hair follicles from above your ear can be extracted, processed, and transplanted into the treatment region, or the transplant can be executed through Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The latter method does not require stitches and will not leave a visible scar anywhere. Both eyebrows can be transplanted in the matter of a few hours.

With the look of fuller eyebrows hitting fashion runways and growing among celebrities more and more, people are seeking out eyebrow restoration. It is a great way to look and feel younger while keeping up with beauty trends.
