Three weeks into wearing false eyelashes, Angeleno, Michelle Barrera ended up with bald spots on her lash line after removing them. Realizing the severe damage the false eyelashes and thick black lash adhesive caused on her eyelashes, Barrera admits she went into hiding.

“I didn’t even want to go outside,” she said. 

She wore glasses to hide her bald lashes. “I felt really insecure about myself,” she admitted. She knew she needed an eyelash restoration, but was worried and unsure of her options.


After her VeeLashe, eyelash transplant, Michelle was able to go back to her regular routine and no longer hiding her eyelashes.

Devastated, she spent months concealing her frustration with her eyelashes. Barrera’s story is just one of dozens upon dozens of other women’s cumbersome experiences with false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. Many continue hiding their balding lashes by wearing the fake eyelashes to shamefully cover up with hopes no one will notice. 


Michelle got fake eyelashes at her local nail salon. After removing her the extensions, her eyelash line had bald spots and her eyelashes stopped growing.


Women who desire long luscious eyelashes go to extreme measures to achieve sexy fluttering eyelashes even if it means spending an immense amount of hard-earned money buying the latest celebrity-endorsed eyelash products, medicinal remedies like Latisse or even wearing the little tiny fur coats on their eyelashes, fake eyelash extensions composed of either man-made materials or animal fur.


Embrace Your Individuality With VeeLashe™

Desperate for a more permanent solution, while cosmetic treatments and procedures continuing to increase in popularity, Barrera looked to Dr. U who suggested the Veelashe procedure using body hair. Upon examining her entire body hair donor scope, Dr. U determined that the closest match for her eyelashes were her thick caliber leg hairs.

Dr. U used Michelle’s leg hair for her VeeLashe eyelash transplant.


Because Dr. U uses his DrUGraft technology, he utilizes any hair including all body hair to perform a successful eyelash transplant. Also meaning he is not confined to the use of only head hair, which conventional eyelash transplant methods must contend with. In actuality, Dr. U considers head to be an unsuitable fit for eyelash transplants because head hair has a thick non malleable caliber that is devoid of the desired curl that is an aesthetic and functional characteristic of eyelashes.On the other hand the chosen body hair was malleable with a curl that is easily adaptable to a natural eyelash curl flow.

Embrace Your Individuality With VeeLashe

While patients may be wondering how much eyelash transplant cost. Dr. U Hair and Skin Clinic in Los Angeles developed a revolutionary eyelash restoration procedure that is transformative and cost-effective for patients – VeeLashe. 

 VeeLashe, a Dr. U evolutionary hair transplant surgery that uses pubic hair for eyelash transplant, is a permanent procedure that has provided patients with long and voluminous eyelashes without the mink or glue. In Barrera’s case, Veelashe eyelash transplant delivered a permanent and natural fuller looking result much to her excitement.

“Every woman that goes out to get fake eyelashes from someone should really look into this,” she said. “Because it’s something that is going to last you, your whole life.”


Michelle's VeeLashe Results

Michelle’s eyelashes were restored through VeeLashe, eyelash transplant surgery. Her results were longer and natural lashes.


At Dr. U Hair and Skin Clinic, Dr. U began noticing that the traditional methods for eyelash transplantation that consisted of extracting hair follicles from the scalp and resulted in unnatural looking eyelashes and lashes that required significant amounts of upkeep post-operation. For this reason, he started researching new donor areas that could potentially be used for eyelash transplant surgery. 

Hair from the pubic area was determined to have some of the best characteristics that mimics the natural curliness of an eyelash. Pubic hair follicles can be safely extracted using the innovative FUE technology, Dr.UGraft™, and harvesting the follicles as usable long term grafts. 

For most individuals, the characteristics of their pubic hair made a more natural fit for thicker, natural-looking lashes. Plus, the maintenance associated with a pubic hair eyelash transplant is significantly less compared to the time needed to prepare lashes following a conventional eyelash transplant.

Through VeeLashe™, it’s easier to achieve permanent long and natural eyelashes. This eyelash transplant means not relying on extensions or prescription solutions. This is also an individualistic approach in eyelash transplant in Los Angeles by Dr. U. 


Why Pubic Hair? Because Not Everyone’s Inclined Towards Conventional Cosmetic Choices

For centuries, the imagery of dark, long eyelashes has symbolized the definition of feminine beauty. From depictions in famous paintings, to the emphasis of lashes in works of poetry and song lyrics there’s no denying the high pedestal of which society places on possessing luscious, attractive eyelashes.

Unfortunately, for many women, wanting their version of perfect eyelashes may seem unattainable. Due to VeeLashe™, women can now wink with the eyelashes of their dreams. 

There are several advantages of using pubic hair for an eyelash transplant:

  1. A natural curl which emulates natural eyelash curliness
  2. Fuller, thicker-looking eyelashes
  3. Slower growth compared to head hair

Pubic hair consists of flat, ribbon-like qualities and the ability to hold a desired curl easier in comparison to straight hair with circular cross-sections. Therefore VeeLashe ™ is the only eyelash transplant that actually provides natural, thicker-looking eyelashes.
