Alopecia areata(AA)is a common,inflammatory,nonscarring type of hair loss.It may be related to T-lymphocyte interaction with follicular antigens(autoantigens),environment,autoimmune disease and so on,but the exact pathogenesis of AA still remains unclear.Traditional treatment methods include topical glucocorticoids,minoxidil,topical irritants,sensitizing agents,and immunosuppressants.However,those managements are often accompanied by side effects.Laser and phototherapy,as a new regimen can decreases the adverse effect.In this review,we provide a comprehensive summary of laser and light-based modalities for the treatment of alopecia areata.
