About Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a serious skin condition, in the initial stage of this condition the patient can experience white patches or depigmented areas on some parts of the skin. This condition is caused when melanocytes – cells that are responsible for producing melanin are destroyed or stopped working properly.  This disruption in melanin production leads to the appearance of white patches that can vary in size and location.

This can affect people of every age group, irrespective of the gender. However, it is more noticeable in people with darker skin tones. The precise origin of this condition is still unknown, but it is believed that it stems from the autoimmune process. In this scenario, the body’s immune system erroneously targets and eliminates melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing skin pigmentation.

The impact of vitiligo extends beyond the physical appearance of the skin. Many individuals with vitiligo may experience psychological and emotional challenges due to the noticeable changes in their skin coloration. As it can cause skin patches all over the body, it can lead to self-consciousness, lower self-esteem, and reduced confidence.

In Dr. Health Clinic, individuals seeking specialized care for vitiligo can find experienced and compassionate vitiligo specialists. Our vitiligo specialist in Chennai have in-depth knowledge of the condition and employ advanced treatment approaches to address the specific needs of each patient.

Symptoms of Vitiligo

  • White patches or depigmented areas on the skin are the primary symptoms of vitiligo.
  • These patches may appear on any part of the body, including the face, hands, arms, legs, and genital area.
  • The characteristic patches of vitiligo often exhibit symmetrical distribution, appearing on corresponding areas on both sides of the body. This bilateral occurrence is a common feature of the condition.
  • Vitiligo patches may enlarge over time, and their borders may become more defined or irregular.

Types Of Vitiligo

Non-Segmental Vitiligo

Non-segmental vitiligo is the most common type of this condition and causes white patches that appear on various parts of the body such as the face, hands, and trunk.

Segmental Vitiligo

This type typically affects only one side or a specific segment of the body, such as a limb or the face. This condition tends to develop at an early age and progresses very quickly in the upcoming months or years of the condition.

Universal Vitiligo

Universal vitiligo is one of the rare and most severe forms of this condition. In this condition, the pigmentation can occur in any part of the body including the mucous membrane. It can have a significant impact on the individual’s appearance and quality of life.

Causes Of Vitiligo

  • Autoimmune disorder: Vitiligo is believed to be an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys melanocytes.

  • Genetic factors: Any history in the family for this condition can increase the risk of developing it.
  • Neural factors: Neural disturbances and imbalances in neurotransmitters may contribute to the development of vitiligo.

  • Environmental triggers: Certain environmental factors, such as exposure to chemicals, sunburn, or emotional stress, may trigger or worsen vitiligo.

Best Treatment for Vitiligo in Chennai, At Dr. Health Clinic

However, it’s essential to understand that there are now more research advancements and treatment options available than ever before. At Dr. Health, our comprehensive re-pigmentation therapy combines various effective treatments to address Vitiligo.

Pigment Stimulating Topical Applications

These topical applications, used in conjunction with unprotected sunlight exposure, stimulate melanin production from damaged cells.

Immune-Modulating Oral Medication

To counter the immune system’s erroneous response that destroys pigment cells, immune-modulating medicines block the faulty signals causing inflammation and cell damage.

Sunlight and UV Therapies

Exposure to UV rays from sunlight or artificial light facilitates the absorption of concentrated doses of Vitamin D, stimulating melanin production.

Combination Therapy with UVA Light and Oral Medication

This approach is effective for larger areas affected by Vitiligo, combining UVA light therapy with oral medication.

Antioxidant Therapy

Addressing oxidative stress caused by an accumulation of hydrogen peroxide, antioxidant therapy repairs cell damage and restores pigmentation.

Depigmentation Therapy

For widespread and unresponsive cases, depigmentation therapy lightens unaffected areas to blend with the affected ones.

Dietary Supplementation

Advice on a balanced diet with diverse nutrient sources helps in treating Vitiligo. Certain foods or additives that may aggravate Vitiligo should be avoided based on allergies or irritation.

Lifestyle Modifications

In addition to treatment, adopting appropriate skincare and lifestyle changes can be beneficial. Stress reduction is crucial, as it can hinder even the most effective treatments. Managing thyroid and blood sugar levels can help prevent the spread of white patches. Minimizing skin friction and trauma can avoid new lesions. Identifying and eliminating triggering factors such as infections, allergens, worms, or irritants is important. Sun protection is also essential.

when you take treatment you want it to work. This is only expectation. I am happy to say that treatment worked well. I had white patches on my eyelids and on finger tips. In the start it was slow, but then skin colored dots started coming and the patches got covered. I did not have any side-effects. Treatment for white patches is very effective.

Gopi Sharma
My 22 year daughter has large vitiligo spots over her entire body including her face. we have been to so many doctors allopathic, homeopathic, ayurvedic but no results. Then one day our neighbor lady who was already on treatment with Dr. Health told us about this treatment and good results in her case after using medicines from Dr.Pranjal. We immediately rushed to her and after consultation we have built lot of hope that our daughter got cured of vitiligo. Finally we started the treatment. Within first fifteen days we saw lot of redness over her entire patches which we confirmed as a good sign. We the saw brown dots over her face, stomach and leg patches and month after month she got normal skin at least I can say 70% by the end of seven months. My daughter is very happy now as she gained lot of her confidence back as we have seen the little girl going towards depression at times. All thanks to Dr. Pranjal for saving my child’s life.

Frequently Asked Questions for Vitiligo Treatment

Not all white spots on the skin are necessarily vitiligo. There can be other causes for depigmented areas, such as fungal infections or post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. Consult a dermatologist immediately to get valuable insights from a proper diagnosis.

Sun exposure can be beneficial for vitiligo spots in some cases. Controlled sun exposure, along with appropriate sun protection measures, may help stimulate melanocyte activity and promote repigmentation. It is advised to consult a dermatologist for personalized solutions.

Scientific research does not support the notion that specific combinations of food have the ability to induce or exacerbate vitiligo. However, maintaining a healthy, balanced diet is essential for overall well-being and can support the body’s immune system and skin health.

The duration of treatment for this condition can depend on various factors, which include the severity of the condition, response to the treatment, and individual reactions and factors. The treatment is usually long-term and can range from months to years.

There are various treatment options available today such as topical medications, phototherapy, oral medications, and surgical interventions. But these can only slow down the spread of this condition.
