Top Treatments for Over-Plucked Eyebrows: Santa Monica Hair Transplant

At Santa Monica Hair Transplant and Restoration Center we are excited to discuss the latest developments in the field of eyebrow hair restoration. As eyebrow hair restoration specialists, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach to eyebrow restoration translates to the best results. This should involve a healthy and balanced diet including vitamin supplements such as biotin, minimally invasive procedures such as PRP injections, and finally micro-hair transplantation. Hair transplant for thinning eyebrows is not a new phenomenon, but recent advances in knowledge and techniques are making eyebrow transplant a more common remedy.


Eyebrow hair transplant in Santa Monica


There are basically two techniques for eyebrow hair restoration, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known at the strip method; and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT a strip of your hair is removed from the back of the scalp; the strip is usually processed by specially trained technicians under a microscope and then the Follicular Units are transplanted to the recipient site. This method was considered the gold standard for decades and many surgeons still perform the procedure, however there are serious downsides to this method such as a permanent scars, greater pain, and longer recovery time. Lower graft survival is also a major deterrent to performing FUT on the eyebrows.  The benefit is lower cost.


FUE involves the harvesting of individual hair follicles and transplanting them into the recipient area. We refer to the FUE technique as micro-hair transplantation because it requires meticulous attention to detail and the individual follicles are selected based on caliber, density, and quality. This translates to minimal risk of permanent donor scars, less pain, faster recovery, and greater survival of the grafts.
