What is vitiligo skin ? Vitiligo is a skin disease that causes the depigmentation of the skin. It manifests as light white patches on the skin or discolored skin patches known as macules. Macules typically start from small white spots on the skin which can grow to larger white patches as the condition worsens.
While one of the characteristics of vitiligo is white patches on the skin, white patches do not mean that someone has vitiligo. Other causes of white patches can include pityriasis alba, tinea versicolor and idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis. One way to determine is by using Wood’s lamp which will cause depigmented skin to glow under UV light.
VTRAC 308nm excimer light therapy for vitiligo laser treatment system like the standard narrow-band phototherapy is an effective UVB radiation treatment option for vitiligo.
Excimer 308-nm light is a form of targeted phototherapy that delivers a specific wavelength (308 nm) of ultraviolet B radiation to the vitiligous lesions using an excimer laser or an excimer lamp.
Its main advantage is that a higher dose of energy can be selectively effected over affected areas while sparing healthy skin tissues from potential adverse effects such as burns. The ultraviolet B radiation works by modulating the local immunity as well as stimulate melanocytes to undergo proliferation and melanin synthesis.
This therapy has higher effectiveness for areas around the face. Treatment is pain-free with no downtime. Patients treated with an excimer laser achieve significant results in a matter of a few months.
The cost of the excimer laser treatment depends on the number and the area of the patches. Find how much the laser treatment for vitiligo cost for you today.
