Treatment of Alopecia Areata in Santa Monica

Alopecia areata is a common problem that results in a patchy loss of hair on the scalp or beard areas. It can occur in both men and women and has been thought to result from stress or immune-modulated damage to hair follicles. The treatment of alopecia areata is guided by a primary diagnosis by a trained expert in the field.


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and expert in the treatment of alopecia areata in Santa Monica. Once diagnosed, the patchy area of hair loss is managed by intralesional injections of corticosteroids. Response times vary from patient to patient, but most individuals will experience a regrowth in hair follicles within weeks of treatment.
