Question:

Hello Shuna,

Your description of Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia seems to fit my scalp condition. I’ve had this for about two years, possibly three. My eyebrows are almost non-existent, so on Saturday, had a session of micro-pigmentation which has given me amazing semi-permanent eyebrows. Beforehand, the person who did it pointed out the redness and puffiness across my brows and when looking at my hairline, suggested that I might have frontal fibrosing alopecia. The thought of losing 6cms of hair depth worries me as I’ve lost about 2 cms already.

My doctor was not worried when I raised my concerns.

I would be grateful if you could give me some idea of you consultation fees. Many thanks.

Mrs X

Answer:

Dear Mrs X,

Thank you for your enquiry.

How astute of the therapist you suggest what the condition may be, perhaps it was my colleague Amy?

If this is indeed your condition, as there is another condition it could mimic- then there are ways to at least control its progression.

An hour consultation would be the best way to decipher, there may be a scalp application I could demonstrate the use of in a clinic treatment (for home use).

The fact that you live a little way from me is not a problem, after your initial visit to me, we can follow up on occasion via Skype or FaceTime if you feel it will support you better? I also feel it prudent for your hairdresser and I to act as “a team” around you and work together to achieve the very best for your hair.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
