Over the years, you expect there to be changes to your appearance. Among one of the most common issues to occur is thinning hair. While you may be prepared for it on your scalp, you never expected it to affect your eyebrows. Although it may seem like an isolating condition, thinning eyebrows is more common than you might believe. There are several reasons it may happen. No matter the cause, there is a minimally invasive option for eyebrow restoration.
Causes of Thinning Eyebrows
Although thinning eyebrows is common, it is often a sign of an underlying problem. If your brows are not as lush as they once were and you are experiencing other symptoms, you may need to visit your doctor. A few of the most common causes can include:
It is estimated 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid disease. One of the most common symptoms of both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism is thinning eyebrows. You may also experience weight gain, excessive fatigue, or you may always feel cold. If thyroid disease is the issue, medications will restore your health and allow your eyebrows to fill back in.
Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, is a condition that can occur anywhere on the body. Topical irritants can lead to red and itching skin. If it occurs on the face near the eyebrows, it can cause them to look thin. You can help to ease the symptoms using a mild soap or facial cleanser.
Your hair needs key nutrients to stay healthy, including vitamins A, B, D, and E. You also need iron, calcium, and acid L-lysine. If you have a nutrient deficiency, it can lead to hair loss, fatigue, and weakness. Resolving the deficiency will correct the problems while preventing more serious complications.
Restoring Thinning Hair
It is natural to experience thinning hair as you age, but if it is sudden or accompanied by other symptoms, you may need to see your doctor to ensure there is nothing more serious causing the problem. If simple changes do not resolve the issue, you can restore your eyebrows using a minimally invasive solution. NeoGraft uses your own hair to create thick, beautiful eyebrows. You will enjoy lasting results that look natural.
