What is Scarring Alopecia?

Scarring alopecia, also known as cicatricial alopecia, refers to a collection of hair loss disorders that may be diagnosed in up to 3% of hair loss patients. It occurs worldwide in otherwise healthy men and women of all ages. According to medical reports, it is usually caused by the result of infections, chemicals, burns or autoimmune disorders.

Scarring alopecia’s do not create visible scars, but rather they attack the hair follicles beneath the skin. If the disease advances quickly or is left untreated the hair follicles can be damaged, or scarred, beyond repair. This results in a shiny bald spot where a follicle, or pore, is no longer present.
