Eyebrows serve two functional roles, primarily protecting the eyes from extreme sunlight, sweat and other forms of debris that may enter into the eye socket. Secondly the eyebrows serve as a form of expression. Eyebrows play a unique role in verbal communication. When talking our eyebrows move, allowing us to express certain emotions such as happiness, anger, pain and sadness. The facial expressions used in conjunction with the movement of our eyebrows, can have an influence on our daily relations.
The eyebrows play an important role in facial symmetry, contributing to the aesthetic appearance in both men and women. Well-designed eyebrows can promote the definition of cheek bones, leading to the face looking more symmetrical and eyes appearing brighter. Well-manicured eyebrows balance the facial features and frame the eyes. In the contrary, poorly shaped eyebrows do not give the face and cheeks a defined and aesthetically pleasing look.
Eyebrow hair loss can be due to a number of contributing factors including: physical trauma, local and systemic disease, over plucking (trichotillomania), and medical or surgical treatments such as chemotherapy, surgical removal etc.
If you currently suffer from eyebrow hair loss, or you eyebrows have been damaged due to excessive plucking and not growing the way you want them to, DHI hair transplant specialists may be able to help you.
DHI Medical Group has developed two forms of eyebrow restoration treatments. These treatments can provide a solution for every case and need.
