From bold arches to a long, strong-looking tail, there's only so much a pencil, powder and pomade can do to enhance the hair in your brows. The latest trend sweeping New York city is PRP for brow hair growth. Traditionally PRP (platelet-rich plasma) was used to promote healing in joints from sporting injuries, then it was the heal-all in skin rejuvenation, naturally correcting the look of ageing, crepey-looking textured skin. However, it has also been used to stimulate hair growth on the scalp, so why not the brows? 
For a quick biology lesson: PRP is when the platelets from your blood are extracted, spun in a centrifuge, and then injected back into the skin to boost collagen production. According to New York-based dermatologists, it can also help promote bushy, runway-ready brows - bring it on we say. Once we find a clinic offering this service here in New Zealand, we will update you.
