Eyebrow Hair transplant

The two most common eyebrow transplants are as follows: 

  • Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
  • NeoGrafting

The average cost for full brow transplant is approximate $5000.   Cost may vary depending on where you live and the number of procedures.  In some cases, individuals need additional sessions to fill in the gap after the initial procedure.  

FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) involves approximately four-inch-wide slice of scalp from the back of your head. It does leave a scar, however, the procedure is less noticeable for women with long hair because they can hide the scarred area with hair.  On men, it may be more noticeable since they tend to keep hair shorter on their head.  It may also be noticeable for some women with thinning hair.  The technician then dissect all the hairs from the four inch slice to graft in wherever you'd like. 

The second most common procedure is called NeoGraft or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method .   It involves a medical device that harvests individual hair follicles from your scalp with minimal damage or scarring.  The hairs are harvested from various areas of the scalp to ensure variety of hair thickness.

In general, both FUT and FUE methods are overall successful.  However, 100% of hair transplant is not guaranteed to stimulate new hair growth.  Henceforth, additional procedures may be needed.

In both procedures, regularly maintaining and trimming the new brow hair is required.  Unlike natural brow hair, the transplanted hair will grow thicker than natural brow hairs and tends to grow in length.  The new brow hair may appear to be course/heavy and grow in various direction.   So it requires weekly maintenance to trim and train hair growth pattern.  This can be achieved with mini scissors and a clean mascara brush. 

Some clients request permanent makeup to fill in some of the gap in between brow hair.  This is not recommended within the first few years of new hair growth cycle.

Permanent Eyeliner turns blue grey

Before Permanent Makeup Brows and Liner                                                       After Permanent Makeup Hairstroke Brows and Eyeliner                                                C ommon question asked by my clients: I had permanent eyeliner done in the past.  The original artist used Black pigment.  It looked great at first, but as the pigment faded, it turned Blue Grey.  Why does this happen and what can I do? As mentioned before, all pigment fades over time.  Carbon Black pigment has a lot of the primary Blue color.  Therefore, as the other colors in the Black fade, the blue color remains. Touch ups are essential to keeping permanent eyeliner looking fresh and crisp.  If you have blue grey liner, ask the artist to add Orange Pigment to the Black Pigment to counter balance the Blue.  The Orange pigment will turn the blue into a soft brown, and with the added black pigment, the blue will not be noticeable.

What is the difference between Micro Blading and Tattoos

What is the difference between Micro Blading and other Permanent Makeup modalities. Microblading is a tool that is popular with the newer generation of permanent makeup artists.  The marketing of Microblading has dominated our industry in the past 2 to 3 years. Microblade is a hand held tool where the series of needles are configured tightly to form a "blade" or a "knife".  The artist uses the "blade" to cut "hair like" incisions into the skin.  The pigment is then smeared into the cuts.  The width of the blade is extremely narrow so that the artist can create an illusion of eyebrow hairs. Due to the narrow width of the blade, the artist must minimize the space in between each stroke.  If the strokes are placed too far apart, the tattoo may appear sparse when healed.  If the strokes are placed too closely, then the pigment from each stroke blend into the next stroke and causes pigment migration or a shaded look.  Immediat
