Frontal Fibrosis Alopecia

What is Frontal Fibrosis Alopecia?

Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a localized form of lichen planopilaris, where scarring and hair loss occurs in the hair line. Post menopausal women are most commonly affected, though it can occur in younger women and men. The exact cause of frontal fibrosing alopecia is currently unknown. However, environmental factors such as sunscreen and cosmetic use have been associated with the condition.

What are my treatment options?

Once a diagnosis has been made, treatment options include the same topical, oral and injection-based therapies offered for lichen planopilaris.
