It is possible that you have never heard of superciliary madarosis, but surely you know its effects, it is responsible for the loss of hair from the eyebrows and eyelashes. In addition to its protective function of our eyes, the alteration of these features directly affects the balance, harmony and expressions of our face, creating dissatisfaction about our appearance and complexes that we can definitively resolve with a capillary micrograft. We will talk about that in the next post.
The eyebrows and eyelashes, historically in women, but for some time now also in men, have been a facial feature subject to the fashions of each moment. In recent years the trend is to wear them defined and very populated, but for a long time the tweezers roamed at ease in our toiletry bags and worked piecemeal to clean and shape the frame of our eyes. This abuse of hair removal, the genetic characteristics of each person or suffering from other causes of madarosis, make it a real challenge to reach the new aesthetic ideal for some people.
THE STORM ‘MADAROSIS’
This pathology does not have a single origin, the triggering factors are varied, and can be temporary or permanent.
- Common alopecia, arerata or extraction (hair removal)
- Scars from trauma or burns
- Inflammation or irritation of the skin in the area
- Hormonal factors
- Stress, pathological nervous state, or trichotillomania
- Dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, or eczema (psoriasis)
- Radiation therapy around the eye area
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Syphilis or leprosy (low incidence)
THERE GOES OUR LIFEGUARD!
There are various techniques to resolve the absence of eyebrows such as makeup, microblading, shading, extensions, micropigmentation, all of them temporary, and in the short or medium term the process should be repeated. The only definitive solution with a natural aesthetic result is the micrograft technique, a procedure based on hair transplantation but adapted to the particularities of the hair. The intervention is done under local anesthesia and lasts about 3 hours.
The hair follicles that are implanted in the eyebrows are extracted from the scalp, at the nape of the neck. Each follicular unit contains 1 to 2 hairs and, unlike the hair graft, in the technique developed to repopulate the eyebrows, only those follicles that contain a single hair are selected and implanted, which is more similar to hair and allows to obtain an appearance natural and aesthetic. For this, the previous work carried out in consultation is also important, where the design of the eyebrow line that will be followed in the implantation and the number of follicles to be transplanted is established.
Hair (head) and hair (rest of the body, including eyebrows) have peculiarities that differentiate them from each Hair (head) and hair (rest of the body, including eyebrows) have particularities that differentiate them from each other (thickness, growth rate, length, regeneration capacity). Therefore, it will be necessary to trim the hair of the eyebrows as it grows to equip it with the rest.
Like any surgical intervention, it requires a prior assessment of the patient to detect the reason for the alopecia and their general health to undergo surgery.
