An autoimmune disease, Vitiligo results in lightening of the skin. It’s a chronic, psychologically debilitating and difficult-to-treat condition.
The first line of treatment is normally a topical therapy. In addition, the 380nm Excimer laser is a reliably effective, fast-acting and well-tolerated intervention for a number of patients affected by localised Vitiligo involving less than 20% skin surface area. The Excimer laser is used to stimulate Melanocytes to help repigment areas. A treatment course is required and lesions demonstrate response within 3 to 4 weeks after treatment, but results vary from patient to patient and certain areas of the body respond better than others.
