Your eyebrows frame your face, amplify emotion, and enhance expression. But you may have been noticing that your eyebrows are becoming thin or wispy, and that this is impacting your appearance, and not for the better. If this is the case, is there anything you can do so promote eyebrow regrowth, or is eyebrow loss irreversible?
Causes of eyebrow hair loss
The answer will depend on the causes of your eyebrow hair loss. Causes can include skin conditions such as eczema, hypothyroidism, severe nutrient deficiency, chemotherapy, over-plucking, scarring and yes, hormonal changes related to aging.

Yes, eyebrow regrowth is real
Once we have determined the cause of your eyebrow hair loss, in many cases regrowth can be addressed by the application of Rogaine® (minoxidil) and by undergoing an eyebrow transplant. Unlike eyebrow tattooing or dying, which can result in a look that appears fake or odd, solutions involving Rogaine or undergoing an eyebrow transplant uses your own hair for a permanent and totally natural look.
What is an eyebrow transplant?
A small amount of hair follicles are removed from the donor site on another part of the body (usually the back of the head) then transplanted into the eyebrow area. The transplanted hairs blend with your existing brow follicles, and mimic their natural color. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually lasts less than a day. The results are permanent.
Do eyebrow transplants look natural?
Caveat emptor! An eyebrow transplant is an extremely delicate procedure requiring a highly artistic touch. If done by the wrong person the result can look phony, irregular or out of place. Make sure your surgeon is highly skilled in matching the natural look color, texture and orientation of your brow hair and skin tone. Do not trust this procedure to just anyone.
