Who would have thought it?
Thanks to celebrities like Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins and Emilia Clarke, bushy, thick eyebrows are on the rise more now than ever. But, achieving this look is a challenge in itself, especially if you've overplucked your eyebrows in the past, or just generally have sparse, thin hair.
No doubt, there are countless products on the market that can help you obtain bold arches, such as eyebrow pencils, tints, gels and powders. But, if you're looking for something with a little more longevity, then you'll be pleased to know that there's a treatment that might just cure your sparse brows - eyebrow injections.
What Are Eyebrow Injections?
Eyebrow injections are a cosmetic procedure that can help to increase hair growth. A platelet-rich plasma injection is created from your own blood - the procedure involves drawing blood from the body, extracting the platelets, and then re-injected them into the area in need of treatment.
How Do They Work?
According to Gary Goldenberg MD, who spoke to Byrdie.co.uk, eyebrow injections deliver growth factors and nutrients to your eyebrows, as well as improving vascular flow. Some medical doctors argue that this could help to stimulate dormant hair follicles and in turn create thicker brows. So, this treatment a good choice for women who have sparse brows due to a history of overplucking or waxing.
How Soon Do You See Results?
It's different with every individual, but most people see results within two to four months. Also, be warned that the treatment isn't guaranteed to work on everyone.
What Are The Side Effects?
As with any cosmetic procedure, there is always a risk of infection, although this is very low, says Gary. You may experience some bruising for 24 hours after, too.
What Do Grazia Think?
Although this cosmetic procedure may help you achieve thicker brows, there are plenty of other less intrusive options on the market. We recommend opting for microblading for a semi-permanent result, or investing in a trusty hair growth serum!
