By penetrating the scalp epidermis and suppressing the T-cells considered responsible for alopecia areata hair loss, phototherapy can reactivate otherwise healthy hair follicles. Regrowing hair is a difficult challenge for any treatment modality, including phototherapy. Results may vary.
Phototherapy treatment for alopecia areata requires multiple sessions (usually around 5-10 minutes each), so we’ve developed every aspect of our practice to allow for a convenient and highly supportive experience for patients.
If you have alopecia areata and desire treatment, light therapy may be a good treatment option for you. Call today for a consultation with one of our licensed nurse practitioners.
