Eyebrow hair transplant
Eyebrows can be missing or thinning for a number of different reasons, mostly from over plucking, alopecia, scars caused through facial injury/burning, or age.
At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we offer the revolutionary, for eyebrows. We can help to build on a thinning eyebrow, and even create a natural looking, realistic eyebrow for those with no hair at all.
Eyebrow Restoration: The Process
With single hair grafts, prepared under the microscope, eyebrows can be created and thin eyebrows can be made denser with our eyebrow restoration procedure.
Donor hair is extracted from the back of the scalp, using the. It is then prepared under a microscope. After this, the donor hair is inserted into thinning areas in the eyebrows, or around the whole brow area to create natural looking eyebrows using a 23 gauge hypodermic needle under a high magnification microscope.
This is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of the hairs into tiny incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth. No scalpels are needed and no stitches are required. The procedure is 100% micro-surgical. Patients will regain their natural growing eyebrows with no side effects.
Eyebrow Restoration: The Results
You will be able to see the direction of the single transplanted hair follicles that our doctors follow in order to produce a perfect aesthetic result.
The results are dramatic yet undetectable. However, transplanted eyebrow hair must be periodically (typically once a month) trimmed because it will grow the length of scalp hair. Surgical scars from facelifts and brow lifts can also be corrected in the same manner.
The cost of the procedure depends on the number of hairs required and an approximate guide is between £2,500 to £7,000.
7.Hair Loss Treatment
There are a few medications that have been proven to stop hair loss, or even reverse the balding effects of hair loss. Both of these medications have proven very effective in clinical trials for re-growing thinning hair at the top of the scalp. In Propecia, some clinical studies have shown that as many as 80% of the users saw a significant decrease in the appearance of their baldness after use of the medicine.
Both of these medicines work in the same way to battle hair loss: they inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the hormone that causes hereditary balding. This hormone can affect hair follicles that are genetically vulnerable by breaking them down and preventing hair growth in the future. By using medication to inhibit this process, patients can experience renewed hair growth. Not only does the medication halt or slow the process of hair loss, but it can even cause hair to begin to grow again.
Rogaine is one of the most commonly recognized forms of treatment for thinning hair and for hair loss, and it also originally required a prescription. However, in 1995, it became available in 2% strength Rogaine over-the-counter.
One thing to be aware of about using medication to treat hair loss is that, while it has been proven that these medicines are successful, they typically do not have any effect on re-growth at the front of the hairline. This area may resist the medication more than the crown of the head, and so it is often recommended that patients take the medication to halt hair loss, and then use other methods, such as a hair transplant, to replace lost hair that will not re-grow on its own.
