What is Alopecia?
Alopecia areata is a condition that causes hair to fall out in small patches, which can be unnoticeable. These patches may connect, however, and then become noticeable. The condition develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss. There’s currently no cure for alopecia areata. However, there are treatments that may help hair grow back more quickly and that can prevent future hair loss.
Narrowband Therapy for Alopecia
UVB Light Therapy is sometimes considered a treatment for hair loss from alopecia. Those who do undergo UVB Light Treatment have two to three sessions per week where the skin is exposed to UVB light. Sometimes patients will also be given psoralen, a medicine that makes the skin more sensitive to light, before treatment.
***Please note*** – we strongly advise that you keep your GP or Dermatologist aware of any therapy regime and always seek their advice on any treatment of your condition.
