Vitiligo

Safe, Effective Vitiligo Treatments

Vitiligo is a skin disease which presents as symmetric white patches, most commonly on the face, lips, hands, arms, legs and genitals. Half of those affected are under the age of 20, and 1 in 5 have a family member with the condition.

The cause of vitiligo is thought to be autoimmune, meaning that the body attacks its own pigment-producing cells. Most patients with vitiligo are otherwise healthy. Occasionally, vitiligo may occur with other diseases such as thyroid disease or alopecia areata.

The course and severity of pigment loss differ with each person. There is no way to predict how much color an individual will lose. In general, because of the contrast in color, vitiligo appears more obvious in patients with skin of color.

Treatment Options for Vitiligo

Treatment of vitiligo begins with topical corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitors. For best results, at Spring Street Dermatology, we often utilize these agents along with full body or excimer targeted narrowband UVB.
