Treatments that aim to hide the white patches - Skin Camouflage
Skin camouflage uses special coloured cover creams that are put on the white patches of vitiligo. Skin camouflage does not alter the disease but improves the skin's appearance. The aim is to find a colour to match the colour of your skin. Some special cover creams can be prescribed which are available over the counter and some are prescription items. The cream can disguise vitiligo very well which may greatly increase self confidence.
Treatments that aim to reverse the changes in the skin:
There is no once and for all 'cure' for vitiligo. However, some treatments have been shown to slow down the progression of the condition, and some treatments cause affected skin to regain pigment and colour in some cases. No single treatment for vitiligo works well in all cases. The response to the various treatments is variable. The following just gives a brief overview of current treatment options.
Surgical Management :
Treatment to completely de-pigment the skin
In some people with extensive vitiligo a treatment may be considered to make the remaining normal areas of skin to go white. This makes all the skin an even white colour. This is done only after a full discussion with a specialist. The removal of all the skin pigment is permanent and it takes about a year to complete.
SKINIC also maintains a comprehensive on-site Pharmacy. This means that in most cases you can pick up your prescription straight after your appointment. Both pharmaceutical and cosmetic products are available.
