Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its Melanocyte (pigment cells). The melanocytes in vitiligo are destroyed, resulting in depigmented areas of skin. Hair that develops in vitiligo-affected regions may become white. Vitiligo patients must keep their skin protected from the sun. Also known as acquired leukoderma and piebald skin.

Vitiligo, often known as white spots, may affect any part of the body, although it is more frequent in sun-exposed regions. The patches usually begin on the hands, elbows, knees, legs, or face. Lips, rectum, and vaginal mucosa are some of the mucosal areas that might be affected. Vitiligo may impact the eyes, produce eye discolouration, and affect the retina.
Symptoms and signs:
Excimer laser treatments use the power of ultraviolet (UV) light to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including vitiligo, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. To perform these treatments, skin doctors use a handheld laser to deliver a concentrated dose of ultraviolet light to cause beneficial changes to the treatment area.
Excimer laser devices emits UVB light measuring 308 nm, which is known to have therapeutic effects for certain skin conditions. This wavelength of light can help re-pigment skin affected by vitiligo.
This use of light, also known as phototherapy, makes excimer laser treatments quite different from other skin therapies available today.
Excimer lasers are more effective, safe, and convenient than any other treatment for Vitiligo.
Clinical studies reveal that patients treated with the Excimer laser system obtain higher repigmentation than those treated with any other vitiligo treatment now available.
When you come for your treatment appointment, your skin should be clean and dry; no lotions, creams, or prescriptions should be used. Before and throughout therapy, review all areas of psoriasis with the doctor to ensure that all areas are treated consistently.
