Thursday, 15 November 2012 19:19


Main causes for eyebrow hair loss in men and women are:

  • Congenital inability of growing eyebrow hair. This condition is seen in many members of a family and is easily treated by eyebrow hair transplantation.
  • Physical trauma such as burn, accidental injuries. or over-plucking or reshaping of eyebrows. Hair transplant can effectively restore partial or total eyebrow hair loss in these conditions.
  • Medical disorders such as thyroid diseases. Hair transplant need to be considered when the underlying medical condition is under control.
  • Autoimmune disorders such as alopecia areata or lupus.
  • Psychological obsessive disorders causing self-inflicted obsessive plucking of eyebrows and eyelashes. In this condition that falls under category of trichotillomania, hair transplant cannot be used unless the psychological condition is completely treated and is under control.

Eyebrow Design

The eyebrows are one of the most important features on the face. In the right shape, they can create a perfect frame for the face.

Eyebrows are functional. They can prevent moisture such as rain and sweat from flowing into the eye. They shade the eyes from sunlight; prevent dandruff and other small objects from falling into the eyes, as well as acting as sensors for detecting objects being near the eye, such as small insects.

They have an important facilitative function in communication, especially in strengthening expressions, such as surprise or anger. Many makeup artists view eyebrows as a major feature in defining the face. In the wrong shape, they can sometimes cause what is known as a ‘false facial expression’, for example, looking angry or scared without meaning to.

The most aesthetically appealing appearance of the brow is dependent on the face shape. Let our experienced team decide with you the best eyebrow shape for perfect facial harmony.

There are Six Basic Face Shapes

Oval Face Shape

Round Face Shape

Long Face Shape

  • forehead is wider than the chin
  • prominent cheekbones
  • face tapers to a narrow oval chin
  • face width is almost the same as the length
  • face is widest at the cheeks
  • forehead, cheekbones and jaw line are all about the same width
  • tend to have a prominent chin
  • elongated appearance

Square Face Shape

Heart Face Shape

Diamond Face Shape

  • forehead, cheekbones and jaw line are all about the same width
  • squared jaw line is the most obvious feature
  • similar to oval but the chin tapers to a point
  • not common
  • typically the face is highly angular
  • forehead is rather short
  • face widest at the temples

Perfect Eyebrows

Oval Face Shape
The perfect brow shape is generally considered to be the soft angled shape. This is in fact the most popular stencil shape, and works beautifully with an oval face shape.

Heart Face Shape
A low arched-round brow creates a natural look. A high arch round brow adds (possibly needed) length to a shorter heart face shape.

Long Face Shape
A flat brow shape accomplishes this. It’s horizontal shape makes the face appear shorter.

Round Face Shape
A high arched brow accomplishes this. Look for a brow shape that follows a straight line to the peak of the brow, and creates more vertical lines. Stay away from a rounded brow shape. This makes a round face shape look very round.

Square Face Shape
Angled brows create this balance. Also consider the curved brow shape, suggested for diamond face shapes. The curves soften stronger features.

Diamond Face Shape
The curved brow shape does this. Notice that many beautiful celebrities that have a diamond face shape also have curved brows.

• Measure the length of your face with a ruler. (In this case the total length of face is 8inches)
• Divide the total length by 3. (8 ÷ 3 = 22/3 or 2.67)
• Measure the length from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of your chin. (In this case 21/3)
• If the length of nose-chin (21/3) is longer than the length of overall 1/3 length (22/3), chances are you have a long face.
• If the length of nose-chin is less than the length of overall 1/3 length, chances are you have a round face.
• If the length of nose-chin is equal to the overall 1/3 length, chances are you have an oval face.

Knowing your face shape is the first step to creating your most beautiful look!!!

Eyebrow hair transplant is a safe procedure and can create natural results for people who lost hair in the eyebrow or have scar in their eyebrows. This transplant is an effective treatment for both partial and full loss of eyebrow hair.

Eyebrow transplant procedure

Eyebrow transplant is done through harvesting scalp hair from the back of the scalp, known as the donor area. The removed skin is dissected with microscopic magnification to follicular units. Hair can be harvested with conventional strip techniques or FUE. The area is prepared and very small incisions are made in the eyebrow area. Tiny incisions produce a tight grip for the single hair grafts that are already harvested. In order to create the best natural results, making the normal looking direction and distribution is very important.

The growth of transplanted hair in eyebrow follows the pattern of scalp hair growth. Transplanted eyebrow hairs are permanent and grow constantly needing to be trimmed more often than normal eyebrow hair. Patients may need 40 to 300 follicular hair grafts for each eyebrow. The number of hair grafts may vary based on patient's sex and ethnic background and eventually individual facial features.

The procedure is performed using local anesthesia. Complications after this procedure are minimal. Redness, swelling and scabbing can be seen during the first few days after eyebrow surgery, but usually go away in 3 to 5 days. Daily washings will minimize scabbing and facilitate healing of implanted hair grafts. Newly transplanted hair to the eyebrow area usually falls out in the first 2 weeks, but new hair grow from those follicles in about 3 to 6 months. Full results are expected in about 6 months.
