Golden Proportions of the Perfect Eyebrows :

Golden Proportions of Perfect Eyebrows

The inner end of the ideal eyebrow is at the same vertical line as the inner corner of eyes. At this point, the female eyebrow is right on the edge of the bony socket of the eye. From here the eyebrow gently slopes upwards and outwards in the middle part. In the outer ⅓, the eyebrow arches upwards and is above the bony arch by several millimetres. If a line is drawn joining the outer edge of the nostril with the outer corner of the eye and the line is extended upwards, it should touch the outer end of the eyebrow. Outer end of the eyebrows can be at or above the level or inner end. The highest point of the beautiful arch of the eyebrow is at the junction of inner ⅔ and outer ⅓. 

Different Types of Eyebrows

Types of Eyebrows:

Round Eyebrows: 

Round eyebrow shapes follow the eye’s natural curve, and it’s the highest point in the centre of the eyebrow. 

Straight Eyebrows

Eyebrows do not have any arch or have minimal arch. 

Peaked Eyebrows

A high arch forming an unnatural peak.

Queen’s Eyebrows

Eyebrows are placed high up above the level of bone of orbit throughout. This is common in children and looks immature or surprised in older people. 

Long Eyebrows

Both inner and outer ends can extend beyond their ideal borders , making the eyebrows long. Long inner ends can make a unibrow and longer outer ends can make eyes look drooped. 

Short Eyebrows

A short eyebrow extends only as far as the outer to inner corner of the eye. 

Thick Eyebrows

They are dense and wide eyebrows. 

Thin Eyebrows

Thin eyebrows, even if they started with naturally thick eyebrows, can become thin from tweezing and waxing. Eyebrow hair can be thin because of medical issues. 

Diagonal Eyebrows

If the ends of your eyebrows are higher than the front, you likely have a diagonal brow shape.

Tapered Eyebrows

You’ll know you have a tapered brow shape if the inner parts of your brows are thicker than the tail. 

Asymmetric Eyebrows : 

One eyebrow is often higher than other eyebrow and shapes can be different on 2 sides .

Perfect Eyebrow Shape at Home

How to get the perfect eyebrow shape at home:

    1. Find the perfect eyebrow shape for your face shape.
    2. To identify the three points that you will need to look at when shaping your eyebrow, use the ‘pencil’ method. Place a pencil in a straight line along the side of your nose – this is going to be the beginning (inside) of the brow. Next, place the pencil along with your nose and across your pupil. This will be the arch and the highest part of your brow. Now move the pencil so that the end of your nostril and the outer edge of your eye are in line – this is the end of your brow.
    3. Make sure you’ve made yourself comfortable and have good lighting. Invest in a high-quality pair of tweezers – this essential instrument you’re using has to be effective in tweezing the eyebrow and grabbing the hair. You can also shave the extra hair easily with eyebrow shavers available online.
    4. Run an ice cube over your brows to reduce the redness, swelling, and pain, or apply some skin moisturiser.

What if all of this is not working anymore?

Eyebrows are not naturally perfect always and shaping them well can add to the beauty of every face says Dr. Priti Shukla . A lot of people do get eyebrows shaped but not having good knowledge of aesthetics and fear of going wrong makes them only remove extra hair and do clean up . With good knowledge of aesthetics eyebrows can be shaped to add the beauty and symmetry .Eyebrows go down with age starting in early thirties. This is inevitable because of gravity, loss of forehead skin tone and downward pull of muscles around the eyes. Some of you who have low eyebrows to begin with may feel the effect earlier.

Here are the solutions for eyebrow shaping that are safe and effective for anyone above 18.

Botox : Botox can help you get arched and elevated eyebrow . It can make eyebrow symmetrical too . Botox is safe for all ages . Botox micro injections feel like a mosquito bite . They are given around eyebrows into the muscles that are pulling the eyebrows down. Muscles treated with Botox stop over acting and lose the battle against their opponent group of muscles of forehead that pull the eyebrows up in victory. Additionally, if you have crows feet – those lines around the corner of eyes – they too vanish with Botox. Botox can be safely repeated every 3-4 months for maintaining the result of high eyebrows.

Beauty Victim

Hyaluronic (HA) fillers. Fillers are also injections – but diffent from Botox . Fillers are fantastic alternatives which can be injected under the temple muscle to lift the outer eyebrows. HA( hyaluronic acid ) is a substance that is naturally present in our bodies so filler injections are safe. Procedure takes less than 10 minutes and is painless. These fillers last upto 2 years.

Cat Eye lift : Cat eyes are a recent trend. Cat eyes mean that outer corner of eyes and eyebrows are lifted up .  An eyebrow thread lift is a system that plans to fix the hanging skin of your eyebrows and smooth away the wrinkles to give you a more young and fresher appearance. The thread lifts are minimally invasive techniques that successfully lifts, revives and firms the skin utilising absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) stitches. PDO will lift the skin as it gives volume while PDO threads support collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic corrosive creation of your skin. The thread lifts provide a prompt, recognisable lift bringing about a typically tighter, more youthful-looking skin. Thread lift result lasts a few months and can be repeated as needed safely .

Ultherapy or High intensity focussed ultrasound

Ultherapy or High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU)

This US FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for sagging skin uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen development and lift the skin in the temples, jaw, neck and even the chest. The engaged ultrasound energy works up the cell restoration by warming up deep tissues beneath your skin’s surface, coaxing the body to build collagen creation. Collagen is useful for keeping skin tight and HIFU helps with that.

RF skin tightening

RF is radio frequency treatment in which electromagnetic waves of high frequency are passed into the skin and they stimulate the collagen in the skin. This treatment is useful for those above 30 years of age when the skin starts losing collagen and gravity then pulls down the loose skin. RF treatment above the eyebrows, in temple and brow regions tightens the skin and can elevate the brow upto 1-2 mm. This treatment is repeated every 4 -6 months to restore lost collagen. 

Ambrosia clinic  uses fractional radio frequency technology to securely warm the deep layers of your skin, invigorating existing collagen and advancing new collagen development for more youthful-looking skin.

A word of caution: 

“ Eyebrow lift is highly individualized and results are also variable”, says Dr. Priti Shukla. Some get great results and some not much, based on the tissues. An expert plastic surgeon can assess your tissues and assess your expectations to give you the best solution. Assessment of total face and explaining to you if the lifted eyebrows will suit you or not, is also done at Ambrosia Clinic . 

Surgery like temporal brow lift, brow pexy, and upper eyelid blepharoplasty are solutions for those seeking drastic and long lasting results. Usually they are preferred by those with severe droop of eyebrows, not responding to any other method. Surgical solutions are also available at the Ambrosia clinic. 

Part 1: A Guide For the Perfect Eyebrow For the Ideal Face

Guide for the perfect eyebrows

Ever wondered what’s amiss in your beauty routine? Ohh, Yes!!! The lockdown home DIY’s did take care of the ‘facials’ and ‘mani-pedi’s’, but eyebrows were the ones that had to wait.

Perfect face deserves the perfect eyebrows.

Your eyebrows introduce you before you start to speak!!!!

& it’s so true.

A gentleman is known by the shoes he wears, but the eyebrow game shows a woman’s keen sense of self-confidence. So let’s find out the basics behind the perfect brows. Eyebrow revolution has decades dedicated to them. The ’80s had bush brows revolution, and the ’90s saw razor-thin eyebrows, while 2010 was an elevation with Cara Delevingne’s ‘brow brothers’ wild look.

The shape of Eyebrows and Face Cuts

The Shape of Perfect Eyebrows and Face Cuts:

Eyebrows play an essential role in elevating the features of the face. It can be daunting to find the correct brow color for filling the eyebrows. Any shade slightly darker or lighter can change the total look of your appearance for the better or worse but why take chances on that.

Let’s first understand the different eyebrows one should have according to the face cut or face shape:

  1. Oval face cut: In an oval face, the forehead is broad, and hence the chin and cheek area are quite prominent. If you are looking for statement eyebrows for the oval face cut, then a soft eyebrow with curved endings look the best.
  2. Diamond face cut: The most highlighted feature of this face cut is the cheeks. They are very outward in appearance and hence very distinguished. If you have a diamond face cut, then go for a full eyebrow with a curvier detail.
  3. Heart-shaped face cut: Heart-shaped face structure is very similar to that of the oval face cut, but the chin is more pointed. For this shape, curved and neat eyebrows do the trick.
  4. Round face cut: One most of the most common face structures out there is the round face cut. On a round face, the eyebrows should be pointed and arched. The sharp angle will add definition and line the features of the face.
  5. Square face cut: In this face cut, the width amongst all features of the face is the same. The jawline is very evident, and the look is angular. A fuller eyebrow will complement this shape better.
  6. Long face cut: In this face cut, the features like chin, cheekbones, and forehead are very long. A horizontal eyebrow shape suits this type of face structure.
DIY’s to Grow Thick Eyebrows

DIY’s to Grow Thick Eyebrows!!

Here are a few techniques or practices you can take up to improve the texture and density of your eyebrows.

  1. Castor oil: Castor oil has always received rave reviews for its hair growth potential. It is effortless to use and doesn’t irritate the skin.
  2. Onion juice: Onion juice has a fan club of its own. It is said to treat difficult alopecia situations hence comes highly recommended when it comes to hair growth matters.
  3. Olive oil: Vitamin E present in olive oil aids in hair growth. It helps the eyebrows get darker and more extended.
  4. Egg yolk: it is a very common fact that egg yolk is a great protein source. Daily application of egg yolk on eyebrows makes the hair grow denser.
  5. Coconut oil: The age-old traditional recipe comes to our rescue again. Pure coconut stimulates the growth of hair follicles in the eyebrows, thus prompting a fuller development.

Perfect Eyebrow- Of course, DIYs need time and attention to thoroughly work their magic. Ambrosia has bought solutions that take care of eyebrow troubles.

Medical treatment: According to Dr. Monica, consultant dermatologist Ambrosia Clinic, Hyderabad, some of the most common causes of eyebrow thinning are hormonal imbalances, infection, dermatological conditions, and immune system dysfunction, nutritional deficiency, chronic emotional stress, and physical trauma to the brow area. Overplucking of hair due to a psychological condition called Trichotillomania causes people to pull out hair from their scalp, eyelashes, and eyebrows. The thinning of eyebrows is also caused by other dermal medical conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, fungal infection, or contact dermatitis. Thyroid deficiency, pregnancy, and aging can cause eyebrow thinning too. Neurological medications like antidepressants, antiepilepsy, anticancer drugs, and hormones also initiate eyebrow thinning. Dermatologist consultation and diagnosis is very important before starting any treatment.

Perfect Eyebrow- Treatment of eyebrow thinning involves correction of deficiency and addresses the cause of eyebrow thinning. Topical creams and lotions are used to treat some conditions, and specific hair regrowth lotions are advised.

Dr. Priti Shukla, plastic surgeon, Ambrosia Clinic, Hyderabad recommends eyebrow hair transplantation when there is the loss of part of the eyebrow due to injury or burn.  Hair follicles are removed from the scalp and transplanted individually into eyebrows to fill the gap, keeping in mind the direction of the hair and natural look. This surgery is done under local anesthesia. Scars can be removed by surgery.

Microblading: Instead of a tattoo gun, very fine and tiny pointed needles that are held together in a small disposable blade and handle are used to deposit the ink pigment into the eyebrow skin. The result is very close to the natural-looking brows, and the ink doesn’t wash off.

Now, many wonder if micro-blading is tattooing but is a form of semi-permanent makeup tattoo. Exact and measured strokes make sure that the ink pattern mirrors the natural brows. The pigment isn’t ingrained deeply into the skin, and since it’s semi-permanent, the body does metabolize it up. The ink used for eyebrow micro-blading is not very concentrated, unlike the tattoo ink.  The semi-permanent eyebrows last 1 to 3 years depending on the type of skin, for example, in oily skin, the micro-blading effect fades away faster. At Ambrosia, we suggest regular touch-ups to keep up the appearance of maintained perfect eyebrows.

Eyebrows wigs are exactly what you think they are-miniature wigs for your eyebrows. They are stuck onto the natural eyebrows using special wig glue.  Eyebrow wigs last around for only 2 to 4 months only if taken care of. They can be cut and resized to suit your face shape and not that difficult to apply. Usually, people who have lost their eyebrows entirely or have really thin eyebrows use eyebrow wigs.
