Managing Alopecia in Women of Color

by Joshua Zeichner, MD, FAAD, Valerie Callender, MD

Josh Zeichner, MD sits down with Valerie Callender, MD to discuss her approach to patients dealing with hair loss, particularly traction alopecia and central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA). She shares tips for the initial visit and developing a treatment plan, as well as a maintenance plan. Studies suggest a multi-factorial pathogenesis, including a genetic predisposition and association with hair grooming. While CCCA can lead to permanent scarring, emphasis is now on early diagnosis, an effective treatment plan, and patient education about hair grooming habits that can help.
