The Risk of Shaving Eyebrows
Eyebrows should never be shaved. No one knows quite why, but there is a significant risk of not having the eyebrow grow back in. Or, if it does grow back in, it may grow back with an abnormal pattern or color to it.
This mistake is most commonly made by healthcare practitoners when a child receives a laceration to the eyebrow area; for example, by getting struck with a T-ball bat. In an effort to provide a completely unobstructed view of the cut to afford the best chance at a top-notch cosmetic result, the uninformed practitioner may shave the area. Hair in all other areas (except perhaps the eyelashes) will grow back if shaved and is routinely removed when stitches or sutures are placed.
