"Pauliegirl- I have a couple questions about your Accutane use. What is your dosage? Are the side effects still manageable? Last time I asked, I think you said you weren't really having any.
Finally, and most importantly (to me : )), are you…"
"Interesting but it's ONE person.
In my hand now I have a bottle of the sunscreen I had used for 25 years. It has no titanium or titanium products listed on the label. and I rarely used it on my forehead (always wear hats). At…"
"Whoa. Very interesting.
i didn’t understand why they might link FFA to sunscreen but studies like this would explain it. I use all non-nano zinc oxide now though one “Kiss My Face” product in my cupboard has 6% non-nano titanium…"
I just thought some of you may be interested in the article that will soon be published. It is a case study of one woman with FFA. They analyzed her hair and found titanium nanoparticles in the shaft. This chemical is found in many sunscreens and other cosmetics. The article is attached.…See More
"@Pauliegirl. Yes, I thought titanium was safe as well, along with zinc. I was a little confused by the findings. I have also been looking for a safe sunscreen. I think EWG rates titanium oxide as fairly safe, like a 3. Maybe I will stick just zinc…"
"Microblading is on my radar. There are two main reasons I hold back: 1) I've had a lot of skin issues (little bumps, wrinkling) that I think are related to FFA. I also have rosacea. I want to get the skin issues cleared up first because I know…"
"My post to the forum is awaiting approval, so I thought I would add it in both place, since there is talk of it. A new article just came out that showed titanium nanoparticles in the hair shaft of a woman with FFA. Just a case study, nothing…"
"I haven't. I use it on my hairline thought. My brows have been totally gone for about 2 years now, maybe longer. I'm not sure that there's any hope for regrowth at this point. Although, I guess I have nothing to lose."
"This really makes me wish I would have acted sooner. I didn't seek treatment until all of my eyebrows were gone. After my thyroid test came back normal, I just kept telling myself it was a phase...a very long phase. When I was finally seen by a…"
"AnnieMay, a study was just published that reports a link between FFA and rosacea. I also have rosacea. It was at its worst about 18 months ago. My cheeks were flushing and super hot for no reason almost every evening. It seemed to have calmed down…"
"I begun loosing my eyebrows six months before I had my first ever missed period; I tested the hormons and the levels are still normal, but I'm in perimenopause (my FSH is high), I'm pretty sure that FFA is somehow connected to the…"
"If the vast majority of women who have true FFA (by biopsy) are menapausal, then there is clearly a link. My doctor said "oh for sure they are connected, they just haven't found the connection yet." "
