Triangular Alopecia

Triangular Alopecia is a rare, nonscarring form of hair loss found in the temporal region. Its shape can be triangular, oval, or lancet-like. The hairless patch is typically on one side but can sometimes appear on both. The skin looks normal, differentiating it from hair loss causes like Alopecia Areata. While diagnosis is mostly visual, many don't seek treatment, but options include using growth factors and topical minoxidil. The the condition is nonprogressive, with the affected area remaining stable, and differentiating it from other hair loss causes is crucial. Consult a certified trichologist for a definitive diagnosis and the various treatment options available.
