Dr. Jamie Weisman of Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta GA

Alopecia Areata is a medical condition in which a person’s immune system attacks the hair follicles. There is no known reason why the immune system makes its attack, but Alopecia Areata is known to be a genetic condition. Generally, this condition is most common in people under the age of twenty, but people of all ages may be affected. Both men and women are equally affected.

Hair is an important part of a person’s appearance. When someone starts to lose clumps of hair it can be extremely disheartening. In most cases of alopecia areata, hair falls out and leaves totally smooth, round, hairless patches on the scalp. The hair usually grows back within 6-12 months, but other bald patches may occur in new spots. Some people try to adjust to living with this condition without treatment. They choose to wait for the hair to grow back and wear hairpieces in the meantime.

For others there are treatment options available. The most common treatment is corticosteroids injections into the scalp. This is a successful treatment for many people, and their hair will grow back at the site of the injection. Children may be treated with topical corticosteroids that are applied to the hair loss sites.

If you have been diagnosed with this skin condition, Medical Dermatology Specialists will work with you to determine the best treatment options for your alopecia. Dr. Weisman and the qualified team at Medical Dermatology Specialists will provide specialized care for this condition that can affect each patient differently. Our progressive knowledge and treatments will help you find long lasting solutions to effectively treat your alopecia areata.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
