What Is The Vitiligo Treatment?

Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin develops white spots due to  lack of melanin pigment. It is a persistent and usually long-term illness.
The illness arises when the body’s immune system damages melanocytes (skin cells that give color to the skin).

If the white patches are mild, dermatologists may offer topical creams, or oral medicine to help restore skin color and stop them from spreading. You can also choose advanced therapy Allopathy  for Vitiligo treatment.

Metamorphosis has qualified dermatologists to examine the white spots during consultation and deliver an ideal individualized treatment to get a clearer, even toned skin color with long lasting results. Medications and surgery would help in skin color restoration but the results may vary.

Patients who have long lasting stable vitiligo can consider the Surgery. The surgery known as Melanocyte-Keratinocyte Transplant surgery. In the surgery the white skin layer (white spots) are removed and is replaced by melanocyte or skin cell from another healthy area of the body. Later on after few months the replaced melanocyte starts developing fresh pigments that gathers on the surrounding skin resulting in the disappearance of white spots.
