I totally understand where you are coming from. I even looked into getting eyebrows transplant but I wasn't a candidate. If you have autoimmune alopecia they won't consider you for the procedure. I was told the hair would just fall out. I even found studies that reflected eyebrow regrowth on someone with an autoimmune but the answer remained no.I am interested in fake eyebrows and I will be watching this topic in hope someone has additional information.
I am 7 years in and I still feel sad and helpless. Also, I never in a million years thought I would be in this situation. I had a head full of beautiful hair, so this is hard to deal with emotionally and physically.
I had mine tattooed. Very very painful.
I try to stay positive, but as time goes by it's really hard. I don't tell people I have alopecia. I even had a guy at my work tell me I should stop plucking my eyebrows and allow them to grow back in, so I can look better. He didn't know I didn't over pluck them they fell out. It amazes me how people are so free to give their unsolicited opinion on others. Hang in there I know it's difficult.
Hi, I'm dealing with same situation also. Although I've had my eyebrows tattooed (permanent makeup) but doesn't last very long and you do need touch ups. So for now I just continue with an eyebrow pencil which is so annoying. I so need a permanent fix.
Babycakes101, you are right the tattoo doesn't last very long at all. $400 and 1 1/2 years later, I use the pencil also. I didn't know they faded that fast. My Dad and my husband had tattoos and they were still in color 50+ years later.
Has anyone tried the Micro blading tattoo technique. It is suppose to look more realistic,which is especially important for a male. Thinking of it since taking cyclosporine for 9 mths hasn't done a thing for my AU of 1 yr.
Yea it's been about that long since I had mine done. Expensive but saves time in the mirror.
I can relate. I developed AU 6 months ago. I am still devastated, it's like a never-ending bad dream. I purchased a human-hair wig that cost me a bundle. I feel very anxious wearing it. I have decided to have my eyebrows tattooed. Nervous but at least I won't have the frustration of drawing them on numerous times a day.
