Levia for FFA
There may be some benefits but these data are new and there are no good published studies in FFA to guide us. There are data with the 308 nm excimer. Certainly finasteride, dutasteride, steroid injections, topical steroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors (tacrolimus and pimecrolimus), hydroxychloroquine and doxycycline are at the top of the list. See a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss if this is the route you plan to take.
Regrowth may occur with finasteride and dutasteride in some patients. But for many of the treatments, halting further loss is the main goal of treating this scarring alopecia.

In our office, we use prp/progesterone with great results. Hair transplantation is an alternative. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
