If you notice patches of your skin losing color or pigment, you might be experiencing vitiligo, a chronic autoimmune condition. This process occurs when melanocytes, the cells responsible for pigment, are attacked and destroyed, resulting in white and milky skin. Although vitiligo is not curable, our board-certified dermatologists at Feinstein Dermatology offer treatments to help you manage these symptoms. If you’re in Delray Beach, FL, we’re here to provide vitiligo treatments tailored to your needs.
Types of Vitiligo
There are two types of vitiligo: generalized and segmental.
- Generalized vitiligo causes white patches to appear on both sides of the body, often in a symmetrical pattern. For example, you may notice white patches on both hands and knees. The loss of pigment can be rapid, progressive, and cover large areas of the body.
- Segmental vitiligo is far less common, and usually occurs at a young age. It is characterized by white patches on just one part of the body, e.g., one arm or one leg. In some cases, segmental vitiligo also causes the partial loss of hair color.
To begin your treatment journey, schedule a comprehensive diagnosis with one of our board-certified dermatologists. Once we determine the type and severity of your vitiligo, we may suggest advanced laser technology as a treatment option. This cutting-edge laser therapy effectively clears vitiligo patches without causing harm to the surrounding healthy tissues. While it doesn’t cure vitiligo, laser therapy provides long-lasting relief from your symptoms. We also offer new, highly effective topical treatments as part of our comprehensive approach to vitiligo management.
