Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes the skin to lose its color. Smooth white areas appear on a person’s skin. If you have vitiligo in a place that has hair, the hair on your body may also turn white. It occurs in about 1% or slightly more of the population throughout the world. It affects all races and genders equally; however, it is more visible in people with darker skin.
Vitiligo usually begins with a few small white patches that may gradually spread over the body over the course of several months. Vitiligo typically begins on the hands, forearms, feet, and face but can develop on any part of the body, including the mucous membranes (moist lining of the mouth, nose, genital, and rectal areas), the eyes and inner ears.
The condition occurs when melanocytes (the skin cells that produce melanin, the chemical that gives skin its color, or pigmentation) are destroyed by the body’s immune system.
We provide surgical treatments with a very high success rate to patients with stable vitiligo. That means, no new spot developed or change in the size of the existing ones in the last one year.
The results vary from patient to patient. In some cases, the response to vitiligo treatments is immediate, while in the other cases, the considerable results are seen after a few months. Likewise, the repigmentation at non-hair bearing region like finger tips and ankles is a little slower than that in case of other body areas. For the best vitiligo treatment in Kathmandu, visit us!
