Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia
Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia is also known as Scarring Alopecia or Cicatricial Alopecia and can cause women to lose around the first five inches of their hair line.
The appearance of hair loss with this type of condition is often similar to that of a head band. It may begin at the ears and then gradually move upwards towards the hair line. It tends to affect Post Menopausal Women and can be a very gradual process. In some cases it can also cause the eyebrows to thin.
Causes and outlook
Scientists believe that FFA is caused by the immune system attacking the follicles which can cause inflammation which in turn damages the hair follicle. It is thought that as the majority of women with Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia are post menopausal there may be a hormonal link. Medical experts believe that re-growth with this type of hair loss is unlikely.
