Alopecia Areata in Palm Beach Gardens & Stuart, FL

What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia areata is a rather unpredictable form of hair loss that can also affect the nails. Alopecia areata is caused by the body attacking its own hair follicles. This can cause hair loss to occur on any area of the body, although it most often affects the scalp. Alopecia areata sometimes happen in cycles, where the body loses and regrows hair in varying degrees. However, it is difficult to determine the pattern of these cycles, and patients have the best chance at managing their symptoms by pursuing treatment.

How is Alopecia Areata Treated?

Alopecia areata may be treated with a variety of treatment methods, depending on the severity and location of the symptoms. Steroid injections are commonly used to treat alopecia areata, which can help stop the body from shutting down the hair follicles. Other possible treatment options include both topical and oral medications.

How Much Does Alopecia Areata Treatment Cost?

The cost of alopecia areata treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the procedures involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Alopecia Areata Treatment?

Alopecia areata treatment is difficult to predict without a consultation and subsequent treatment plan, as the cycles of hair loss and regrowth vary significantly from patient to patient. Still, with continued treatment and the monitoring of results over time, alopecia areata treatment is generally successful in reducing hair loss and improving hair regrowth. Our goal is always to help patients minimize the effects of alopecia areata and restore normal hair growth as much as possible.
