Raising Awareness and Providing Support: SkinMD Celebrates World Vitiligo Day

World Vitiligo Day is observed on June 25th every year to raise awareness about vitiligo and to support those who are affected by the condition. Vitiligo is a skin disorder that affects over 100 million people worldwide. It occurs when the cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives color to our skin, hair, and eyes, are destroyed, resulting in white patches on the skin. This condition can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and quality of life, which is why it’s important to raise awareness and provide support to those who are affected.

We’re Committed To Our Patients

At SkinMD, we are committed to providing the best possible care for our patients with vitiligo. We understand that living with this condition can be challenging, and our goal is to help our patients feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. We offer a range of treatments that can help to manage the symptoms of vitiligo and improve the appearance of the skin.

Treatments For Vitiligo

One of the most effective treatments for vitiligo is phototherapy, which involves exposing the affected skin to ultraviolet light. The experts at SkinMD are also proud to offer the XTRAC® excimer laser. This laser’s targeted beam of ultraviolet B light triggers the repigmentation of vitiligo patches, gradually improving their pigmentation and evening out the color of your skin. We also offer topical treatments that can be applied directly to the affected areas, such as corticosteroids and immunomodulators, that help inhibit immune cells. These treatments can help to reduce inflammation and promote skin healing.
