Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) is a kind of autoimmune cicatricial alopecia characterized by a destruction of the frontal band of the scalp. The pathology can even destroy the eyebrows, eyelashes and body hair on higher and lower limbs. The pathology affects mostly women and is more and more common. Eyebrows disappear and, after that, the frontal line of hair implantation recesses backwards progressively
When one of these symptoms show, a consultation with your Dermatologist proves vital because this autoimmune pathology must be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. This is a cicatricial pathology, which means that after the hair loss process, no hair growth will ever be possible so consult quickly a specialist to get a full assessment and treatment.
Hair implants do not provide solutions for patients suffering this pathology because the hair implanted will eventually also be affected by the pathology and fall out 3 to 4 years afterwards. However, there is a solution for these patients: the FAS technique.
