Vitiligo Treatment in Bangalore or white patches treatment has treated many people having mild to serious vitiligo stages and types.
Vitiligo is a skin disorder where the skin starts to lose its colour causing the appearance of white patches on the skin.
If a person develops vitiligo in a place where hair grows, the hair growth also loses natural colour and turns white. The discolouration starts from the forearms, hands and generally from the feet and face.
Over a period of several months, Vitiligo that starts with small white patches may continue to gradually spread all over the body. It can also develop on the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, genital and at the end of the large intestine (colon) or rectal areas. Moreover, it can spread to the eyes and inner ears. About 1% of the global population has this condition where the skin cells producing the pigmentation chemical in the skin are destroyed by the body’s immune system.
Smaller patches that can be called macules that are 5 mm or less usually shift and change over time with some areas losing and regaining their pigments. However, the larger patches stay in the same place and continue to widen and spread. The amount of affected area is different for every person.
Vitiligo is a common skin disease in which there is a loss of pigment from areas of the skin. There are various treatment options available to help control active patches of the disease. When it comes to improving a faded complexion, there are many effective options for treatment. Phototherapy, narrow-band ultraviolet (UV) B, non-cultured melanocyte transplant. The use of phototherapy enables the control of active spots. As a result, most patients go on to see repigmentation.
Our dermatologists believe that the major reason for vitiligo seems to be that melanocytes are destroyed. If you want to overcome this problem and achieve a really effective solution, please do visit Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic in Bangalore.
At Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic we have an extensive and individualized range of medications and natural treatments that rely on the parameters of vitiligo such as type of vitiligo, stage, the extent of vitiligo, and so on. We considered vitiligo to be both depigmentation and repigmentation disorder. It is a multifactorial, life-altering skin problem.
It requires a multidisciplinary approach. The most important thing to do in the fight against vitiligo is to take good care of yourself. Vitiligo treatments, such as UV therapy, however, do not cure vitiligo.
Causes for Vitiligo or Leucoderma or White Patches:
Vitiligo disorder causes skin discolouration(melanocytes) in the form of small white patches which increases gradually all over the person’s body. Melanin is the chemical produced to provide and decide the colour and tone of the skin and hair.
This loss of pigmentation is caused mainly due to loss of melanocytes that produce melanin for the skin. It can also affect the hair growing on the affected area of skin and the area inside one’s mouth. The primary cause of this failure of production of pigments is unclear but it may be related to –
Autoimmune Condition – Disorder of the immune system that kills its own cells.
Heredity – A family history of the disorder passed down to the descendants.
Accidental contact with some strong toxic chemical.
Stress-induced triggers, excessive sunburn or skin irritation.
Types of Vitiligo :
Vitiligo or Leucoderma disease causes white spots on the skin and discolouration of hair growth in affected areas of the body. It can also cause white patches on the face, ears and inner ears. There are different types of vitiligo disease –
This type is where small macules appear in different places of the body while progressing symmetrically and is the generalized type of Vitiligo disorder. It is also the most common type of Vitiligo disease that people develop.
When the occurrence of white patches is restricted to one side of the body or one particular area of the body it is a segmental type of Vitiligo disease. In this type, patches start appearing on one part of the body like hands or face at a younger age.
The type of Vitiligo disease where the mucous membranes of the genitals and/or the mouth are affected is called the mucosal type of Vitiligo disease. Patches start to appear on the genitals and the inner area of the mouth.
In this type of Vitiligo disorder, white spots on the skin appear in one particular area and do not spread in any chosen pattern within one to two years. This is a rare type of vitiligo disorder where white spots occur in one area of focus and does not spread for a long time.
Trichome is one of the types of Vitiligo disease where the white spot area is in the centre of a light pigmented skin followed by natural coloured skin.
A type of Vitiligo where more than 80 % of the body is covered with white patches or lacks pigments. This type of Vitiligo causes discolouration on nearly all skin surfaces and is rare.
In this type of Vitiligo, the affected areas of skin are usually the face and the hands and other body openings like the eyes, nose and even around the ears.
Symptomsof White Patches / Vitiligo:
Melanin production and maintenance in the body decide the colour of the skin, hair and eyes of a person. When these melanin-producing cells called melanocytes die or stop functioning, a person starts developing Vitiligo or white patches on the face or skin. This disease affects all skin types but the visibility of the white spots may be higher in people with darker skin. Vitiligo and its symptoms are not life-threatening or contagious. Symptoms of vitiligo include –
The appearance of white patches on the face, hands and other areas around the body openings and genitals in the beginning.
Premature greying of hair on any part of the body due to loss of pigments on the skin and scalp spreading to hair.
Loss of colour pigments of hair on scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes or beard.
Loss of skin colour pigments on the mucous membranes or the inner lining of the mouth and nose.
Vitiligo / Leucoderma Recovery:
Vitiligo disease may start at any age in a person’s lifetime but for most people, it starts before the age of 30. It is not predictable how this disease progresses and sometimes it may even stop without the need for any treatment. However, in the majority of the cases, the skin colour pigments are lost gradually starting from small white patches that spread all over the body.
Vitiligo treatment helps in restoring skin colour in affected areas but it does not help in preventing continued loss of pigments or the recurrence of it. There are different recovery treatments available for vitiligo disease.
This vitiligo (melanocytes) treatments are chosen depending on the age of the person, the area of skin involved, the pace of spread and the effect it is having on their life.
These treatments can best be suggested by doctors by approaching a combination of some medications along with light therapy when the symptoms of vitiligo start to show. These treatments may have to be continuously judged in a span of a few months to notice the difference and try different approaches or stick to the same. Doctors may also suggest an application of medicine to the skin as maintenance post-treatment to help prevent a recurrence.
Treatment For Vitiligo or White Patches
Medication to soothe inflammation – when early symptoms of vitiligo start to show, applying a prescribed cream to the affected skin might bring back the pigments. It is easy to apply the cream but the results take a long time to show and may also have side effects like skin thinning.
Medications for the immune system – As one of the vitiligo causes may be an immune system disorder, some medications may be prescribed to affect the immune system in a way that the areas of depigmentation come back to normal.
Therapies – Phototherapy or light therapy with narrowband Ultraviolet B rays helps in reducing or slowing the pace of vitiligo spread. Many times it is used in combination with a plant-derived substance called psoralen for the white patches on the skin to regain colour.
Depigmentation – In this process, when vitiligo disease has spread to most parts of the skin, application therapy is done to the unaffected areas to lighten them so that they blend with the affected areas.
Surgery – If treatments do not show a response there is another option of surgery treatment. Skin grafting, blister grafting and cellular suspension transplant are a few options.
Prevention Of Vitiligo
Though the results vary from person to person and are unpredictable, it is possible to restore skin colour or even out skin tone through medications and light-based therapies. Some Vitiligo recovery treatments may have serious side effects and hence your doctor may rather advise applying makeup over the affected part.
