Abstract

Alopecia areata is a common skin disease with diverse modalities of therapy. The eyebrows are one of the target sites of alopecia areata and may be the only affected site. We report our recent experiences of superficial cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen to promote eyebrow hair growth due to alopecia areata. According to our results, superficial cryotherapy of alopecia areata in eyebrows can be an effective mode of treatment.
