What Is Madarosis?

Madarosis comes from the Greek word madaros, which means bald. Superciliary madorosis refers to the loss of eyebrow hair.  Madarosis might cause self-esteem issues in the person. Medically, a balding eyebrow might be a sign or result of other diseases. If you have balding eyebrows, you can turn to us for help.  We can use our hair restoration procedures to restore the natural balance of your face

Personal Habits Might Make You Lose Your Hair

Be gentle with the areas around your eyes, because some of your personal habits might cause superciliary madarosis. If you’re in the habit of plucking, scratching and vigorously rubbing your eyebrows, you might pull the hair out permanently. Once you do that, you might find that you’re using more of the eyebrow pencil to redraw or make your eyebrows look fuller. If your personal habits have permanently removed your eyebrow hair, we can help. We’ll discuss your options, which might include an eyebrow transplant.

Skin Disorders Can Cause Hair Loss

Skin disorders that inflame and irritate the eye area can cause eyebrow hair to fallout. For example, if you have eczema, your skin might be extremely dry and itchy.  This dry itchiness might cause you to scratch profusely, and that scratching might pull out your eyebrow hair. If you scratch out a few hair follicles, the hair might grow back. But, if you scratch out a patch that doesn’t grow back, you might need a medical hair restoration procedure to address the situation, and this is where we come in. We’re experts in restoring hair for a natural look and feel.

Systemic Diseases Might Result in Hair Loss

Systemic diseases, such as psoriasis, affect many organs or tissues in your body. Some of these diseases cause alopecia, which is the medical term for when you lose hair from parts of the body that normally have hair. Alopecia is often permanent. Rather than constantly fuss with eyebrow pencils or temporary tattoos, you might find that an eyebrow transplant suits your needs.

Medical Treatments Might Cause Hair Loss

Drugs and medication meant to cure you of certain illnesses might have an unwanted side effect. These treatments might cause you to lose your hair.  For example, patients undergoing chemotherapy for various cancers might lose their hair in the process.  This is because chemotherapy goes after rapidly dividing cells, healthy or otherwise. Hair follicles are of the most rapidly dividing cells in your body, so chemotherapy might cause your hair to fall out. This means you might need to look to experts who can restore your hair and help you look your best.
