The saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder couldn’t be truer when it comes to the eyelashes. Long, full lashes bring out the natural beauty of the eyes and help draw attention to one’s facial features. Eyelash transplant in the Philippines provides a permanent solution to thin, sparse, uneven, damaged or missing eyelashes.
As a facial hair transplant procedure, an eyelash transplant is an ideal treatment for those who are in good health and want to address thin, short, sparse or missing eyelashes due to genetics, injuries, incorrectly using eyelash curlers and extensions, or medical treatments like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
An eyelash transplant involves obtaining viable hair follicles from a donor site at the back of the head, then implants 1 hair using a specialized micro needle. On average, the doctor may implants not less than 80 -120 plus individual hairs per eyelid. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and takes up to 2 hours to complete.
Two weeks after the procedure, the newly transplanted hair will be shed, making way for fresh ones to grow. The regrowth process can take up to 12 weeks. Final results become evident at least on the 8th month after eyelash transplant and vary according to the patient’s desired results.
An eyelash hair transplant in Manila is a minor procedure with little to no downtime, though minimal physical activity is recommended 24 hours after the operation. Light bruising and scabbing are normal and should subside within 4-5 days.
Mild pain, tenderness, swelling and bruising are normal after the procedure and would go away in less than a week.
