Is there any documentation of success with Xeljanz (Tofacitinib) to calm the scalp irritation and even regrow hair?

68 yr female affected with frontal fibrosing alopecia under the umbrella of lichen planopilaris for over 6 years. Scalp is scaly, itchy, inflamed. Follicles become irritated and then die. Tried oral meds of Tamoxifen and plaquenal prescribed by Duke for 2 years to no avail.

I’m trying to understand if this drug prescribed for RA might be used successfully off label as a topical treatment.
