Does anyone know of any alternatives when AA begins to attack your eyebrows. I know women sometimes tattoo them on or use that permanent makeup. Being a guy, I'm not sure that i could do that. I've had AA for over a year and for the most part have come to terms with it. this has set me right back to square one. I've gone back to just not leaving the house anymore and i hate it. Has anyone out there tried immune suppression? If so, what are the consequences? I hope someone will reply. I have know one else who can really relate.

Eyebrows are very hard to lose.  I do have eyebrow tattoos.  If you don't want to go that route, www.headcovers.com makes very realistic eyebrows that you glue in place.  I've heard only good things about them.  They make them specifically for men.

Please don't become a hermit because of alopecia!  Some guys wear glasses or baseball caps to conceal not having eyebrows.  You'll find what works best for you, but don't please don't let this limit your life.

I too have this problem.  In fact, I had injections in my brows yesterday and saw a permanent tattoo artist today.  I'm not sure I could do the tattoo though.  It's good from far but far from good when close up, you know?  In the meantime, I also just started Latisse and use an ultra violet light on my brows.  I'm hopeful I can get some growth but right now, I don't have much.  Haven't tried immune suppression.  What can you tell me?

I haven't tried immune suppression, my doctor refuses to do it. I sure I can find some one who will. I think from a guy stand point I may have found something that has definately is working on my scalp. I guess it would work for women with their equivalent. I have extremely low testosterone which as you might guess among other things has a part in hair growth in men. I have been using it directly on my scalp and my hair ' which was a train wreck has grown back almost entirely. I have two small spots that have hair but are making a comeback albiet at a slower pace. I'm hoping that the androgel with an immune suppression routine might do the trick. I guess the equivalent for women might work although I don't profess to know very much about what it supports within their bodies.

so you put androgel directly on your scalp and the hair has grown back?  Are there any potential side effects of it?

Hi Michael,

I jumped on the eyebrow tattoo bandwagon years ago and am very satisfied with the results.

You need to find a really good professional to achieve the right look.

Feel free to contact me for more information.

Hope to see you at NAAF in June 2014 San Antonio.
