Where Did My EyeBrows Go?
Where have all my eyebrows gone? I hear this everyday with my clients. Unfortunately one of the joys of aging is we loose our eyebrows.
Men loose the hair on their head and grow bushy brows. We loose our eyebrows and grow chin hair. It's not fair! Most of the loss is due to hormonal changes and much of it is over tweezing. I have heard too many times..."My sister waxed off my brows when I was 14 and they have never been the same and I am 55!"
Eyebrow hair grows through phases. As new hair grows underneath the old hair, the old hair eventually falls out. The hair cycle becomes shorter for women as they age due to hormones, with the new hair being not as strong as the older hair falling out. Eyebrow hair will grow back only about 20 times before the hair follicle gives up, which can cause eyebrows to thin as the hair is excessively tweezed, waxed or falls out. This explains why women at about 35 years of age begin to pencil in their eyebrows more and more. What a chore for the busy gal. You are not alone.
Permanent Makeup is a wonderful answer to the dilemma. When it is applied correctly, the illusion of having a softer, sexier eyebrow is achieved, permanently. What a Blessing!
