Is There Any Treatment for You to Get Rid of Your Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a medical condition in which our skin loses its pigmentation in patches. It is not a harmful or contagious disease, but it can affect your confidence and self-esteem. Let’s discuss if there are some better  options for you to get rid of it.  

Is There Any Treatment for You to Get Rid of Your Vitiligo?

Melanocytes are responsible for skin pigmentation. In vitiligo, these melanocytes are destroyed, resulting in skin depigmentation in patches. To date, there is no cure for preventing the development of depigmentation patches. Currently, there are several ways to cover up for uneven patches. 

One option is to approach an expert who will guide you to some options. One option is using prescription creams and ointments that lower the inflammation and prevents the spread of pigment loss. Other options are:

  • Skin grafting
  • Skin lightening
  • Photochemotherapy
  • Laser treatment

All these ways are expensive and need to be done by an expert. They have their own side effects that vary with the treatment you choose.

Lastly, there is an option to cover up those patches using cosmetics. There are tinted primers, foundations and powders that can help you conceal the redness, hyperpigmentation and depigmentation. You can choose shades that match your skin, and they will look all-natural and flawless. This is a short term cover-up, but it is handy, has no side effects and can be done really quickly without needing an expert.
