Alopecia Areata Treatment for Hair Loss from Washington DC Dermatologist

Patients who have experienced hair loss are often interested in working with a dermatologist to discuss a cure or effective treatment that can provide noticeable results. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a dedicated Board-certified dermatologist who can offer treatment options for patients who have conditions such as alopecia areata.

What is alopecia areata?

Approximately 6.8 million Americans have received a diagnosis of alopecia areata, a condition that is caused by an autoimmune disorder. This disease causes the loss of hair from the scalp, face, and body. Patients of all genders, ages, and ethnicities are at risk of developing this condition, though it often appears first in childhood. The condition may cause patients to worry about their hair over the course of a lifetime, but it is beneficial to speak to a professional about treatment options for hair loss.

What treatment options are available for alopecia areata?

A Board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess will work with patients to determine the best treatment for their condition. While there is no cure, there are ways to stimulate hair growth in the area to improve one’s appearance as well as their self-esteem and confidence. Treatment options include:

  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Minoxidil
  • Topical corticosteroids
