I had this scar a little over 3 months would the hair missing on my chin grow back or are the follicles too damage? (photo)

I would start with Plato's Scar Serum and Kenalog IIT. Hair loss may be permanent and I would avoid any type of hormonal therapies like Progesterone. FUE may be indicated.

There is nothing that will regrow hair into a scarred area.  Hair transplantation sometimes works well.  I have tried progresterone injections with success in a few patients in combination with rogaine foam. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
