Can full eyebrows spark a fashion trend? Supermodel Cara Delevingne has done just that with her thick, bushy brows.
Studies show that the fashion trend has caused eyebrow transplant inquires to go up by 45%. Of those doing the inquiring about an eyebrow restoration, 70% have admitted to over plucking and over tweezing. Much of this eyebrow plucking occurred in the 90s when the trend toward thin eyebrows were the rage.
But that was then and this is now. Fortunately, eyebrow restoration is a safe and effective treatment for sparse, thin or even missing brows when it’s performed by a competent eyebrow transplant surgeon.
The procedure is similar to a standard hair transplant, wherein a small strip of tissue is removed from the back of the head. Single hair follicles are then removed from the strip and transplanted into incisions in the eyelid. The donor strip is normally removed lower on the back of the head where the hair tends to be finer for a more realistic looking eyebrow transplant.
DiStefano hair loss restoration centers can also do eyebrow restoration where donor hair is removed one follicle at a time using a process called the Individual Graft Technique (IGT™). Because there is no incision there is no scar. This is especially desirable for those who wear their hair short.
