Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

Frontal fibrosing alopecia

This type of alopecia is increasing in prevalence worldwide. Patients typically present with hair loss in the frontal scalp region and it can affect the eyebrows and eyelashes. This is a form of Lichen Planopilaris.

Frontal fibrosing alopecia is characterised by hair loss and scarring on the scalp around the forehead and hairline.

Early detection and prompt treatment are necessary to prevent definitive scarring and permanent loss. The main objective is to reduce the inflammation and prevent the disease progression.
