What is vitiligo? — Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of skin (and sometimes hair) to turn white or lose its color. Doctors are not sure what causes vitiligo, but they suspect it is caused by an autoimmune response. That is when the body's infection-fighting system, called the "immune system," attacks healthy cells. In this case, the affected cells are the ones that give skin its color.

What are the symptoms of vitiligo? — The main symptom is skin that turns white or loses its color. But which areas of skin are affected depends on the type of vitiligo a person has.

There are a few different types of vitiligo. The most common type is called "generalized vitiligo" or "vitiligo vulgaris." But there are others, including "acrofacial vitiligo" and "segmental vitiligo."

Generalized vitiligo usually affects both the left and right sides of the body the same way (symmetrically). It tends to affect:

  1. Fingers, toes, ears, or other body parts that are far from the center of the body
  2. Skin surrounding openings in the body, such as the mouth, eyes, and nose
  3. Stretchy parts of skin, such as the skin covering the elbows, knees, or finger joints
  4. Parts of skin that are injured or get rubbed a lot, such as the skin under shoulder straps, waistbands, and collar areas

Acrofacial vitiligo affects only the:

  • Fingers, toes, ears, or other body parts that are far from the center of the body
  • Skin surrounding openings in the body such as the mouth, eyes, and nose

Segmental vitiligo might affect only the left or the right side of the body in splotches.

Will I need tests? — Maybe. Vitiligo often happens along with other autoimmune problems, so your doctor or nurse might order blood tests to check for those other problems.

How is vitiligo treated? — Treatments help return normal color to the skin. The options include different medicines delivered in the form of ointments, creams, or gels. Another method is light therapy, during which, your skin is exposed to a special kind of light called "ultraviolet light" (also called "UV" light). This therapy is usually done in a doctor's office. Depending on the type of light therapy you have, you might take a medicine capsule before you have the therapy.

Is there anything I can do on my own? — Yes. Do your best to avoid getting a sunburn or suntan. Otherwise the spots of skin that lack color will look even more different from your healthy skin. To protect yourself from the sun:

  • Stay out of the sun in the middle of the day (from 10 AM to 4 PM), when the sun's light is strongest
  • Stay under a sun umbrella, tree, or other shady spot
  • Wear sunscreen – Put sunscreen on all parts of your body that are not covered by clothes. Then reapply sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours, or after you sweat or swim.

It's important to choose a sunscreen that:

  • Has an SPF of 70 or greater – SPF is a number that tells you how well a sunscreen protects the skin from harmful kinds of UV light.
  • Protects against 2 types of UV light, called "UVA" and "UVB" – Sunscreens that offer both UVA and UVB protection are sometimes called "broad spectrum."
  • Has not expired or is not more than 3 years old
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, long-sleeved shirt, and long pants
  • Do not use tanning beds

If you are bothered by the way your skin looks, you can use special cosmetic products to make the skin changes less obvious. Both men and women can use these products.

What if I want to get pregnant? — If you want to get pregnant, you should stop any medicines you use for vitiligo. If you use light therapy without medicines, that is still OK to do. Do not start medicines for vitiligo again until after you have your baby and are done breastfeeding.

What will my life be like? — In 10 to 20 percent of people, vitiligo goes away on its own. But in most people, the condition gets slowly worse, affecting more and more skin. If you are bothered or worried about how you look, speak to your doctor or nurse. You might also want to look into connecting with other people with vitiligo or joining a support group.

📢 Important Advisory for Patients Considering Cosmetic/Medical Procedures

Dear Valued Patients,

We believe in providing you with the best care and guidance as you consider cosmetic procedures to enhance your well-being. It is crucial for us to ensure that you are well-informed and understand the nuances of these procedures, including their limitations and potential risks. Please take a moment to read and absorb the following points:

No Guaranteed Outcomes: It is essential to comprehend that no medical treatment or surgery can be guaranteed to result in absolute benefits or complete recovery. We want to emphasize that there are no guarantees of being "cured" or achieving specific outcomes.

Informed Decision Making: Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to educate yourself about the procedure's details, potential risks, and anticipated outcomes. This empowers you to make informed decisions aligned with your personal goals and expectations.

Risk Considerations: No procedure is entirely risk-free. All medical interventions, including cosmetic procedures, carry inherent risks. Understanding and accepting these risks is a vital part of your journey towards achieving your desired results.

Doctor's Skill and Competence: We assure you that our team possesses the necessary expertise and competence in their respective fields. We commit to applying our skills with reasonable care and competence to ensure your safety and well-being.

Timing and Emotional Well-being: Optimal results from cosmetic procedures can be influenced by emotional factors. We recommend considering the timing of your procedure, especially in relation to major life events such as relocation, job changes, bereavement, relationship changes, or the arrival of children. Emotional stability contributes positively to your overall experience.

Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. By acknowledging these points, you are taking an active role in your journey towards self-enhancement. If you have any questions or concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the guidance you need.

Thank you for trusting us with your care.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
