Vitiligo Clinic

Vitiligo or 'white spot' is not a medical disorder, yet has been frustrating to 1-3% of the population. It is characterized by areas of hypo or de-pigmentation on the skin surface due to destruction or loss of melanocytes. These are areas where the normal pigmentation of skin is missing or deficient. These spots can be many or few; they may be tiny or cover the body. While it is not a serious or life-threatening disorder, it has an impact on the social and psychological well-being of its victims. It can be localized or generalized, stable or spreading, childhood onset or adult onset.

Treatment options include phototherapies (UVA and UVB), 308nm excimer light and laser, immuno therapies and surgery. Skin City is the largest Vitiligo treatment center and has treated thousands of patients. Skin City has invented a new technique of Vitiligo mini skin grafting called 'Cyanoacrylate lamination technique'. This research was accepted to present in an international conference of ASDS (American Society of Dermatology and Surgeons), Washington, 2011.

Excimer Laser

The exicmer light source provides precise, targeted high energy photo therapy, utilizing xenon chloride to produce 308 nm wavelength of narrowband UVB energy, by electrical excitation of gasses. These rays are very intense in power, parallel in direction. Patches treated with excimer have no longer remissions than with photo therapies, so excimer stands at the highest level in photo therapy.
