For years the treatment of eyebrow hair loss was merely makeup via the use of penciling. Permanent makeup or tattooing such as microblading or nano blading improved the overall appearance and is now one of the leading treatments for eyebrow hair loss. However, an eyebrow hair transplant procedure continues to be the gold standard in treatment of eyebrow hair loss. Here are 4 reasons why eyebrow hair loss is superior to tattooing such as microblading or nano blading.

#1: Eyebrow Transplant Gives Natural Results

Eyebrow hair transplantation is a procedure where the hairs from the back of the scalp are harvested in a minimally invasive manner and transplanted to the eyebrow area. The new hairs will grow and become hairs in their new location. By the nature of the procedure, the results are the most natural appearing eyebrows that are possible. Microblading and nano blading by nature are tattooing of the skin and although the techniques have improved over the years, the results are still not as natural as real hair.

#2: Eyebrow Transplant Results are for Life

After an eyebrow transplant, the transplanted hairs will grow for life. They will continue to stay where they have been transplanted and act and behave like normal eyebrows. Eyebrow microblading and nano blading, on the other hand, are tattooing and therefore will fade over time. The nano blading and microblading procedures will need to be repeated and in some cases as soon as 15 months.

#3: Eyebrow Transplant can be Styled

Eyebrow transplant results in new hairs growing where the eyebrows were before. Because of this, the new hairs can be plucked and styled in the same manners as real eyebrows. This means that if fashion and style changes, so can the results. Permanent eyebrow makeup on the other hand, is by nature unable to be changed once it has been placed. Therefore, the style will be your style for life and cannot be changed.

#4: Eyebrow Hair Transplantation can be Cheaper in the Long Run

As stated above, eyebrow transplantation is a one-time outpatient procedure that gives natural results that last a lifetime. For this reason, the cost of eyebrow hair transplantation is only for the one procedure. As mentioned earlier, microblading and nano blading are a method of tattooing and therefore will fade. These procedures will require touch ups and therefore continue to cost more. For this reason, in the long run, microblading and nano blading can cost more to maintain.
