Eyebrow alopecia is a common reason for both women and men to seek treatment. Eyebrow alopecia is defined as hair loss in the eyebrow arch. It can be diffuse or localized, partial or total, acute or mild. Dermopigmentation or permanent make-up of the eyebrows is an effective solution which realistically and durably mimics the eyebrow. It not only creates a natural dense effect, but also conceals scars.

FAQs on permanent eyebrow makeup
YES – They are apparent from the first dermopigmentation session. However, 3 to 4 weeks are needed for the cells to regenerate and for the pigments to stabilize and take their definitive color. Between one and three corrective sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired shade.
NO – The dermograph uses semi-permanent and bio-resorbable pigments. In other words, the tattoo will last for one to four years before gradually fading away. The patient can either maintain the pigments by performing a touch-up session, or change the pattern or color according to his or her needs.
NO – It’s much less painful than a classic tattoo, because the pigment is injected in the superficial layer of the skin. Moreover, the dermograph at the CMCC will always apply an anesthetic cream one hour before the session on the areas to be treated. As a result, the procedure is completely painless. A local anesthetic can even be provided to particularly sensitive persons.
NO – Pigments injected into the eyebrow arch are commonly used in aesthetic medicine and are hypoallergenic. They are of mineral or organic origin, and as such are biocompatible and well tolerated by the skin. The risk of an allergic reaction is therefore minimal.
YES – This requires the use of a tattoo removal laser. The dermabrasion technique can also be used.
NO – No special preparation is required and you can resume your social and professional activities immediately. The treated area will be a little red and swollen and small scabs may form. In addition, you should wait at least one week before exposing yourself to the sun, going to dusty places, making intense physical efforts, going to the swimming pool or the sauna.
YES – Dermopigmentation is strongly discouraged in cases of progressive skin diseases, infectious and viral diseases, autoimmune diseases, severe insulin-dependent diabetes, severe allergies, infectious dermatoses of the scalp, heart, kidney or liver failure, congenital immune deficiency, benign fribrous tumor, patients on Roaccutane, immunosuppression, pregnancy, breastfeeding or if the patient has a pacemaker.
NO – Dermopigmentation of the eyebrows requires the intervention of a specialist who has the necessary experience and skills to draw the eyebrows in the most natural way and to use medical pigments.
NO – The pigments are injected into the epidermis and will never damage the hair bulbs which are located in the dermis. Dermopigmentation therefore never damages the eyebrow hairs. It even tends to stimulate blood circulation in the eyebrow arch, which contributes to healthy hair.
