from 2010 until September 2011 I was wearing eyeglasses that were too tight, and I suppose the tightly fitted frames lead to a pressure-induced alopecia at both lateral scalp sides, decreasing the blood flow passing through the external carotid artery. The right side of my scalp shows reduced hair density. Is this due to an ischemic process? How do I know if the alopecia is scarring and if this process is reversible? Up until now the hair hasn’t regrown. Thanks a lot
I suppose anything is possible. Perhaps you have traction alopecia, but I wouldn’t say it is from an ischemic process. If the problem has been ongoing, the hairs may not grow back. Only time will tell (about 1 year), but I suppose if it has been since late 2011, you would know by now.
Transplants work well if it does not grow back, and in fact, you would never know that they are transplants.
