Treatment for Vitiligo and Leucoderma at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

Vitiligo treatment focuses on bringing back the skin's natural colour. While treatment can often alleviate symptoms, it rarely stops the disease from spreading. When topical treatments, such as steroids, have failed or when there are extensive patches of Vitiligo, phototherapy, a form of light therapy, can be used to reduce the appearance of the depigmented skin. The combination of ultraviolet (UV) A light and the medication Psoralen (applied topically or taken orally) is used in a treatment called PUVA (Psoralen and ultraviolet/UV A light therapy) to restore normal skin pigmentation.

AKJ Skin and Laser Centre offers treatment for Vitiligo under the guidance of Drs. Selvam and Nirmala who are veterans of the industry and trailblazers in the spread of laser therapy across Southern India. Throughout his career, Dr Selvam has cared for more than 150 patients from all over India, including the country's north and east.

Treatment with phototherapy at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre:
  • Stimulates the body's vitamin D production, which may cause re‑pigmentation.
  • Stimulates the production of melanocytes (the skin cells responsible for producing pigment), restoring the skin's natural tone.
  • UV rays dampen the immune system and stops new white patches from appearing.
People with mild Vitiligo may see improvement in the size of their existing light skin patches after just four monthly sessions. They may even be able to stop new patches from appearing altogether. The formula is harmless for both adults and kids.

Vitiligo/ Leucoderma Treatment Procedure in AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

At your scheduled consultation at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre Clinic, a consultant will review the problem areas and hear about any previous treatments you've tried. The severity of your condition, the extent to which it has spread, and the treatments you have already tried will all play a role in determining the course of action they recommend.

The best treatment for your Vitiligo depends on your natural skin tone and type. In addition, we will think about how you want to feel and how your condition currently affects your life. Medication and light-based therapies can help restore skin colour and even skin tone, but the results are variable and hard to predict.

Vitiligo is one of the many skin conditions we can treat with narrow-band UVB therapy. In phototherapy, the affected areas are subjected to ultraviolet light to facilitate healing during the treatment of Vitiligo with narrow-band UVB light (phototherapy). Depending on the patient's skin type and the spread of Vitiligo, phototherapy can be performed anywhere from once a week to three times a week. Light therapy is currently the gold standard when treating Vitiligo, which affects more than 20% of the body. This method works best on the face, the body, and the limbs.

We want you to be confident of whatever choice you make. It's fine and often recommended that you take some time to mull over your treatment options after your initial consultation with us before scheduling any actual procedures. If you have any other concerns or questions, contact us now.

If you're wondering if phototherapy is safe for you, talk to your doctor. To achieve this goal, they will:
Investigate your skin thoroughly by inspecting its entirety. They will also want to know sunlight europe affect you.
Inquire about your and your family's history of photosensitivity and skin cancer (disorders that make your skin more sensitive to the sun).
Inquire as to your pregnancy status or if you are currently nursing.
Discuss your medications with your doctor, including any patches, creams, herbal supplements, or OTC drugs you might be using (medications you get without a prescription). Some medications, including retinoids (including tretinoin), antibiotics, cancer treatments, and others, can increase your skin's sensitivity to UV light.
After phototherapy, your dermatologist will review any additional instructions you may need to follow.
After receiving a phototherapy treatment, you may experience redness, itching, or even a burning sensation. All of these are common reactions to this treatment.
The skin can become extremely dry after receiving phototherapy. Use a fragrance-free moisturiser at least once daily to keep your skin supple and healthy.
There could be a delay of up to 8 treatments before you see improvements in your skin. It could take up to two months for some people to notice a change. Your doctor, ophthalmologist, and dermatologist treating your skin condition may all need to see you again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any hope of finding a treatment for Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is currently incurable. However, the progress of the disease can be slowed or stopped through treatment. To encourage the growth of melanocytes, the skin cells responsible for pigmentation are grown back to their previous levels of activity. We also make efforts to transform the areas of pale skin into a more uniform tone.
Who is most likely to suffer from Vitiligo?
Anyone, regardless of age or gender, can develop Vitiligo. Vitiligo's exact origins and potential dangers remain unknown. Vitiligo might even affect those under the age of 20.
What Are the consequences of ignoring Vitiligo?
Without treatment, Vitiligo can rapidly spread across large areas of skin. Very rarely, some patches may fade or shrink.
How does one identify Vitiligo?
The diagnosis of Vitiligo will be made after the doctor has gathered relevant information from the patient's medical history. The doctor also conducts a physical examination, and runs a battery of clinical tests.
What are the common symptoms of Vitiliogo?

The symptoms of Vitiligo and leucoderma are as follows.

Skin depigmentation is the primary symptom of Vitiligo. However, there are additional warning signs that experts consider as vitiligo problem precursors.

  • Hair, skin, and eyelash colour loss
  • Discolouration of the oral cavity
  • Several different factors can cause eyeball loss or discolouration.
