Men’s eyebrows

The study of men’s eyebrow is the missing piece of the big puzzle called dermopigmentation.

There are many people who suffer from alopecia universalis and not all react the same way. There are those who accept their condition and have no problem showing a hairless head, while others desperately want to find a solution.

Some people do not have hair in some areas because of the scars caused by severe burns. Where there is a scar, indeed, the follicle, and the surrounding skin of course, is damaged and hairs can not re-grow.

Another thing that can impair the growth of hairs is prolonged incorrect use of tweezers which may cause, over time, even some gaps in those areas where the tweezers are used.

The chart below reports some data from a sample of one hundred thousand people. As for alopecia areata, we are talking about people with half of their head with no hairs. As for alopecia universalis, we have twenty-five cases out of a hundred thousand, twenty-five people in a hundred thousand who have no body hair. Alopecia areata, on the other hand, affects 2% of the world population. There are also other forms of alopecia, including androgenic alopecia, which is the most common and the most frequent form of alopecia among men. This problem, which affects the scalp, inevitably involves the eyebrows, making them almost invisible and making a face looking inexpressive.

 

Alopecia areata: affects more than 50% of the scalp

Alopecia universalis: involves 100% of the body

To understand how to re-construct an eyebrow affected by alopecia, we start from the picture taken at the first appointment with our customer. Then, we analyse the situation to identify the right shape to be designed, based on face morphology and we start drawing the structure and the hairs. Usually, we draw the eye and straw hairs as well, to have an idea of the final result.

 

Then, we do not simply tattoo our design on the face of our customer. We test it on synthetic material to identify the right speed, needles and colours to be used.

Only after testing our work several times and only once we are confident, we can start treating our customer

Finally, we draw a shape, which is different for men and women. Men, indeed, have thick, full and often undefined eyebrows.

We divide our design into four different areas to be treated.

The first will be the most transparent area, also characterised by straw hairs, while the second area is the area of the body, which is full and usually darker. The third is an intermediate area, and, finally, the fourth area is the area of the tail, which is characterised by a different colour intensity.

As for men’s eyebrows, we usually consider the body and the tail and the body always occupies two-thirds of the total area. What is really different is hair arrangement. Men’s eyebrows are definitely lower than women’s eyebrows and colour intensity is less perceptible, while the tail is not so thin and definitely not high.
