Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me what the effects of tweezing have on the eyebrows compared to say like the face, do they grow back darker or coarser? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> [color:“blue”] [/color]
Actually, eyebrows are one of two places on the body that one could actually get permanent hair removal from just plucking alone. The follicular structure is so shallow, and the skin so thin, that the scar tissue from the tissue injury can create a similar situation to the thick callus formed by electrology.
In the Movie Pink Floyd’s The Wall, there was a Lloyd’s of London policy made up for Bob Geldolf to insure against his eyebrows not growing back when they shaved them off.
The skin at the eyebrows and legs are so shallow compared to the depth of the hair, that one can actually remove all the skin to the depth of the follicle. On the legs, there is also a situation where lowered circulation causes the leg hairs to lessen in later years thereby starving the follicles of the legs for blood. Many older women who have never utilized even temporary hair removal methods find themselves with reduced leg hair, or even hairless legs, in their later years from this biological event alone.
Of course, if one wants sure hair removal, directed at only the hairs they wish to remove, electrolysis is still the best way to go. It is still possible that plucking one’s eyebrows will lead to increased thickness, color changes, or follicular distortion.
Well i guess i’m a little confused, it seems like everyone else says they won’t get darker like you know how eyebrow fashions change how can people let them grow back if they get darker could you please explain. When i was younger i tweezezd way to much out i got carried away and when they grew back it seemed like they were much darker but people say it is because i’m getting older.
Jenny340 and Jim are both correct. Jenny, if you tweezed your eyebrows over the age of 60 many of the hairs may not grow back. Keep in mind that everyone reacts differently, we are speaking in general terms.
