"Hi Torgal, i also had the same thoughts about microblading, although i have seen fantastic results, i wondered how frequent trauma to the eyebrow area wouldn't result in scarring and then difficulty in achieving the desired result with the…"

"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…"

"Hi, that sounds awful, very disappointed that specialists don't really discuss side effects that you may experience on the drugs they prescribe, are you on any other medications?"

Side effects / results from finasteride

Since starting finasteride 3 months ago I’ve been having some side effects like watery eyes, stomach issues: gas, diarrhea. These side effects don’t seem to be normal for this medication so I’m wondering if anyone else has any of side effects from this drug. I’d also like to know if anyone has had regrowth from finasteride. I don’t know if I want to keep taking it if there’s no hope. See More

"Hi Jess, have you gone down the path of microblading your eyebrows?  If so are you happy with the results?  My eye brows are disappearing..one by one..still preserveri g with castor oil..I think i am in denial"

Jess replied to Torgal's discussion Eyebrow regrowth in the group Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia
"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."
