Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX

Loss of hair in circular patches on any body part is referred to as Alopecia areata. The condition is reversible but new patches may come up again which too will heal.

Intralesional injection is the first line of treatment. Lasers are just supportive therapy. In most cases, lesions heal by themselves in 2-3 months.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more concerns.
