Alopecia Areata Treatment in Wellesley, MA

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes unwanted hair loss all over the body, including the top of the head, eyebrows, and more. Essentially, the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles, causing them to shed hair in patches about the size of a quarter. Nearly seven million people across the US suffer from alopecia areata, and it is typically considered a pediatric condition since most people experience the first signs of hair loss as children.

There is no cure for alopecia areata, but there are hair loss treatments that can help hair regrow more quickly. Most pediatric dermatologists will prescribe corticosteroids, which are drugs that suppress the immune system and slow the hair loss substantially. These may be applied topically, taken orally, or injected. Photochemotherapy may be an alternative for some children, particularly if they cannot use traditional therapies as treatments.

If your child is experiencing hair loss, contact Premier Dermatology today to schedule a consultation. Over time, it is possible to reduce the signs of alopecia areata.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
