Hair Loss & Alopecia

Alopecia is partial or complete loss of hair caused by a disruption to your hair's growth processes.

What is it?

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition where the body's immune system targets hair follicles. The initial signs are usually small, circular, bald patches on the scalp. Some individuals may also experience itching during this stage. Complete hair loss typically happens over a span of six months.


Hair thinning and alopecia are often caused by genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, infections and the natural aging process. Other contributing conditions can include eating disorders, thyroid issues and diabetes.


The team at Mountain State Dermatology is experinced in treating all forms of hair loss and has successfully treated patients who have struggled to find success with past treatment options.


How is it treated?

Although there is no recognized cure for alopecia, there are several treatment options that have proven successful regrowing hair. Some patients find steroid injections and topical remedies to be effective. New JAK inhibitor prescription medicines are designed to target the immune response resulting in hair loss and is highly successful for many patients, even if other treatment options have failed.
