Fibrosing Frontal Alopecia
Fibrosing Frontal Alopecia is a scarring form of hair loss that predominantly affects the front and sides of the scalp, emerging silently. It is distinguished from typical hair thinning, as it leads to permanent hair loss due to follicular damage. This condition is part of a larger group known as Scarring Alopecias. The exact cause remains elusive, but it intertwines genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors. As the hair retreats, so does a piece of one's self-image, highlighting the profound impact of skin conditions on one's identity.
