Not many people think about their eyebrows beyond routine grooming. A few hairs are plucked to shape the brows. You may even darken the hair with an eyebrow pencil for enhanced definition, but what are the solutions when your eyebrows start thinning and developing bald spots? Your eyebrows define your eyes and add balance to your face. It’s also noticeable and embarrassing when your eyebrows begin to disappear. Thankfully, West End Hair Restoration in Washington, DC has solutions designed to fit every client.
Common Causes of Thinning Eyebrows
Thinning eyebrows can happen to anyone regardless of gender. Sometimes thinning eyebrows is a part of the normal aging process. Other common reasons include,
- Medication side effects

Overplucking can also result in thin eyebrows.
What is an Eyebrow Restoration Procedure?
An eyebrow restoration procedure is part of the NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) services offered at West End Hair Restoration.
The advanced system is an outpatient procedure, only local anesthesia is required to numb the brow area. Individual hair follicles are extracted and transplanted in the eyebrows. The hairs are typically taken from your scalp since they are similar to your natural eyebrow hairs.
Since the extractions only measure around 0.8 mm, the procedure does not require any stitches or sutures. The procedure will not leave any visible scarring on the brow or your scalp.
Dr. Hannah will carefully follow your natural brow line to give you natural-looking results. How long the FUE procedure takes depends on the amount of hair loss, but most clients can expect an eyebrow restoration to take between three and four hours.
Is Eyebrow Restoration Right for You?
Eyebrow restoration is something to consider when you have missing or thinning eyebrows. There are multiple reasons for the condition that is often out of your control like aging and genetics.
It doesn’t mean you can’t have fuller eyebrows and you don’t need to color them in with a pencil. Contact Dr. Hannah today at West End Hair Restoration online or call the office at 202-785-4187 for a consultation.
