We revitalize dead and non-functioning pigment-producing skin cells.
The dermatologists at Dermatology Associates of Seattle offer comprehensive care for people with all types of vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a skin condition that occurs when the cells that make pigment, called melanocytes are eliminated. The destruction of these cells causes white patches to appear on the skin. These patches may vary in size, appear on any part of the body and affect males or females of any age or skin tone. Treatment of Vitiligo can be administered to all areas of the body where pigment loss has occured on the body inlcuding hair, and eyes.
Our most affective treatment to-date for vitiligo is narrowband UVB phototherapy. This can be done in a walk-in booth to treat the whole body or with a laser to treat localized areas. The lesions respond better to treatment with narrowband UVB if used in combination with a natural supplement and a topical anti-inflammatory cream.
