Your hair might become thin for a variety of reasons. For example, your scalp hair might become thin as you grow older. Not to be outdone, your eyebrows might follow suit. Your eyebrows also can become thin if you’re not gentle with them. For example, if you line your brows with an eyebrow pencil, be gentle. If you make it a habit of vigorously plucking, rubbing or scratching your eyebrows, hair in the area might fall out and never grow back. To remedy this situation, you might consider an eyebrow transplant.
Medications and Medical Conditions
Your hair might fall out if you’re undergoing medical treatments or taking certain medications. For example, you might lose hair from your eyebrows, as well as from your eyelash and other areas of your body, if you’re undergoing chemotherapy treatments. If you have an autoimmune illness, you might lose your hair. Autoimmune illnesses cause your body’s immune system to attack parts of your body instead of protecting you from illnesses. For example, if you have alopecia areata, your immune system will attack your hair follicles and cause your hair to fall out.
Stress And Traumatic Events
Physical trauma also can cause you to lose your hair. For example, you might lose your eyebrows if you receive a burn in the area. You hair also can fall out if you’re stressed. Simply being stressed can cause the hair to fall out on its own, or you might develop a habit of pulling your hair, or plucking at your eyebrows. Sometimes, if your situation changes, your hair might grow back on its own, but it might not come back at all. An eyebrow transplant might be necessary if you experience a trauma that causes you to lose your hair permanently.
Men and women can benefit from hair transplant services. Hair loss is just as common for women as it is for men, according to ABC News. Though men are often concerned about losing their hair, the worry for women might be stronger. When women lose their hair, they might also lose self-esteem and self-confidence. If you’re a woman who is experiencing genetic hair loss, you might consider a female hair replacement procedure. This treatment can give you back a full head of hair, or full eyebrows, and thus, restore your self-esteem and confidence.
