Vitiligo Treatment in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer vitiligo laser treatment to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is a condition where the human body inhibits the pigment producing process of the skin’s pigment cells. This process causes the formation of white patches on the skin on all areas of the body. Surprisingly, the same patches can appear on the tissues inside the mouth and nose as well as in the inner layer of the eyeball. Hair can turn white as well.
Pigment can also be lost in the skin after a variety of surgical procedures and traumatic accidents. Examples include the white scars after facelifts and aggressive facial laser procedures such as carbon dioxide laser resurfacing. A variety of burns and other traumatic accidents may also lead to hypopigmented scars.
How can I treat Vitiligo or white scars?
A series of laser treatments with the Ra Medical Systems Pharos Excimer Laser can often lead to dramatic re-pigmentation of the skin. Our facility has researched the role of these treatments in the treatment for chronic stretch marks that have lost their pigment. Treatments are undertaken in a series of laser sessions. Improvement is the general rule when treating this type of condition.
How does the laser work?
These technologies represent one of the great advances in laser dermatology. The Ra Medical Systems Pharos Excimer Laser we use emits narrow band Ultraviolet B Light and have been shown to promote re-pigmentation in those who have lost pigment in their skin. They have also been shown to improve chronic stable plaque psoriasis, and aged white stretch marks.
