Your eyebrows may be a small part of your face but they can have a huge impact on your overall look and confidence. Looking after your eyebrows and keeping them neat and tidy can also be quite difficult which is why our threading service is so popular. But what should you do if you notice your eyebrows starting to thin?
Can you regrow thinning eyebrows? Well, the good news is you can sometimes but the first thing you will need to do is to find out why your eyebrows are thinning in the first place. This could be for a number of reasons one of the most common being over-tweezing.
Tidying and neatening up your eyebrows requires care, patience and practice many people who do their own eyebrow care fall victim to overdoing it and thus causing their eyebrows to look very thin. Some people also just naturally have thinning eyebrows so even with proper care your eyebrows can start to look thin again after a while.
Eyebrow hair will grow back normally but it can take a while the average time for an adult is around 60 – 65 days. However, if the area has been tweezed a lot then the hair follicles might be damaged which could mean it will take much longer or the worst-case scenario is that they might not grow back at all.
Eyebrow hair follicles are very sensitive which is another good reason to come to us for your threading and eyebrow care as well as skincare and many other treatments. But if your eyebrows simply aren’t growing back or you would like to try and speed up the process what can you do about it?
Growing Your Eyebrows – What Can You Do?
There are many different ways you can attempt to regrow your eyebrows but be warned no one method has a 100% success rate.
There are many popular home remedies out there that people will swear work one of the most popular being castor oil treatments.
While this might be a popular remedy and plenty of blogs and social media posts highlight it there is very little evidence that it actually works. So, don’t get your hopes up with this one.
There are other similar eyebrow and eyelash growth serums available which are again a little flimsy when it comes to evidence.
To ensure your best chance of success stick with more scientifically-backed solutions. Minoxidil treatments are one popular choice, these treatments do help promote hair growth however they usually come in a liquid form rather than a mousse or spray. So, using a Minoxidil treatment around your eyes is likely to be very difficult.
Many people instead opt to use Latisse which is the first FDA-approved product designed to help eyelashes grow longer, thicker and stronger. These benefits are also passed over to eyebrows as well you’ll be glad to know.
There is a lot of evidence to show that Latisse treatments can help eyebrows look and feel much thicker and fuller.
How much of an effect it will have can vary but it can tackle the issue of thinning eyebrows quite well.
Although you might need a threading treatment from us afterwards if the Latisse causes them to grow more than you expected! But at least you won’t have thin eyebrows anymore.
The problem with Latisse is that it is only available through a prescription so it can take some time to actually get it. Many people who use Latisse also find they need to keep applying it afterwards as well or their lashes will quickly start to thin out again.
Microblading is another way to tackle thinning eyebrows which is also known as eyebrow embroidery which should give you an idea about how it works. Small incisions are made around your eye and pigment is used to create fuller shaped eyebrows.
Once done you will have thick, strong-looking eyebrows that will last for around 12 months before fading away again.
Microblading will give you your desired eyebrows for a time but it can be expensive with initial costs starting at around £500.

If that is more than you want to pay then you can also use makeup and fillers to shape your brows to make them look thicker. This won’t last long in most cases but topping them up and shaping them again will usually be quite quick.
So, that finishes up our look at how to tackle thinning eyebrows. There are a lot of ways you can tackle this problem and it’s much more common than many people realise.
Whether you opt to use a hair growth treatment, microblading, or to fill them yourself you can get your eyebrows looking thick and full once more.
