Eyebrows: The Trend that Won’t Stop Growing

 It seems like everyone is obsessed with their eyebrows recently, and this trend is not going anywhere fast. Each person’s eyebrows are unique and should be shaped to complement an individual’s face. But what happens when there isn’t quite enough hair to shape? That is where the eyebrow transplant comes in.

Brow Event

There are a number of causes of eyebrow hair loss. Hair loss can refer to an over-thinning of the eyebrows, patchiness, or baldness of the entire eyebrow region. The most common problems that can be treated by an eyebrow hair transplant include:

  • Over-plucking of eyebrows that results in permanent thinning or hair loss
  • Naturally thin eyebrows
  • Hair loss due to illness
  • Trauma or surgery that has left scar tissue in the region, resulting in hair loss
  • Certain skin conditions

An eyebrow hair transplant is an effective way to permanently restore hair growth in the eyebrow area. Eyebrow hair transplants are performed similarly to scalp hair transplants, but they require an additional level of skill and artistry to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

After a successful transplant by Dr. Thomas Griffin, your eyebrows can then be exquisitely sculpted by deme’s very own Ani White, LE, the two-time Best of Philly “Brow Whisperer” herself.

To learn more about the procedure performed by Dr. Griffin, visit the Griffin Hair Restoration Center of Philadelphia’s website by clicking here, and join us on June 3rd from 6-8 p.m. at the Murano, 2101 Market St. in Philadelphia, for a discussion on hair loss in men and women, robotic hair transplants, eyebrow transplants, and how to find the best brow shape for your face. Complimentary wine and cheese will be served. RSVP by June 2nd to Cgeorgedeme@aol.com.


A Charity We Love: Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia

Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia is a cause close to deme’s heart. Betsy Rubenstone, Director of Skin Care found comfort in CSCGP as she began her own battle with stage four lung cancer back in 2013, and she now gives back to the cause that has helped to support her.

CSCGP’s mission is “to ensure that all people affected by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.” This mission is achieved through numerous programs, many of which are listed below:

Programs for Children

Summer Camp.  Camp allows children to have a week of supportive fun with other kids who are going through a similarly difficult experience.  Meals are provided every day, and for some kids, this is their main meal for the day.  Camp gives the parent(s) a desperately needed break to rest or attend medical appointments.

Kid Support.  Kid Support is a 10 week program for a child with cancer or a child with a parent battling cancer.  Each week, mental health professionals and counselors work with kids to normalize the cancer experience and teach coping strategies that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives.  Parents attend a concurrent “Parent Support Group” to share the challenges of raising a family while going through treatment.  For many parents, this is a life line of support which decreases anxiety and depression and helps them adhere to their medical treatment plan.

STAC (Straight Talk About Cancer).  STAC is a peer support group for teens ages 12-18 who have cancer themselves and/or a parent with cancer. Our mental health professionals currently run these groups in eight local schools. The groups occur during the children’s regular school day.

Programs for Adults

Mindful Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi & QiGong, Zumba, Couch to 5K Exercise, Pilates, Reike Share

Living with Cancer Support Groups, Caregivers Support Group, Men’s Breakfast, Bereavement Support Group, Specific Cancer Support Groups (Breast, Colon, Lung, etc.)

Writing for Wellness, Art Therapy, Singing Circle, Quilting, Cooking/Nutrition Programs, Look Good, Feel Better

Educational Programs such as Frankly Speaking about Lung Cancer, or Open to Options to help cancer patients navigate through all treatment options available to them.
