It is a skin condition in which blotches of white color start occurring anywhere on the skin due to dysfunction or loss of skin color imparting cells called melanocytes on the affected location.
Even though vitiligo is simply visible but not always a person is able to identify the difference. Getting unusual uneven skin tone visibility on your skin should be tested by a dermatologist as soon as possible to confirm vitiligo so you can get right medical advice before it progresses. Some of the signs to look out for as a warning would be premature graying of your hairs and uneven skin tone in patches especially around mouth, eyes or hands.
The answer to this question is just predictive from centuries. It is assumed major factors that play an important role for somebody suffering with it are- • Heredity/Family history – People with vitiligo patients in their blood relatives have greater chances of suffering from it. • Autoimmune condition- In this your immune system causes disorder by erroneously attacking your own tissues. • Other random possible causes – critical sunburn or skin trauma, a trigger event which caused a lot of stress or terror to the person or as a reaction due to coming in contact with some corrosive chemical compounds.
There are no effective ways to prevent vitiligo permanently. Once it occurs it usually increases. Getting it removed with an expert dermatologist is the best solution to go for. Along with its removal, doctors may suggest you medications which can help in treating future relapses or new patches.
Vitiligo surgery is the best method for effective removal of white blotches on your skin. Here at Tvak Skin & Laser Clinic, we perform vitiligo removal in following ways- • Punch grafting – It is the most common way because of its simple techniques and efficacious results. In this, small areas of skin is taken from thigh or buttock areas then placed on the hypopigmented zones. It considered the best method for vitiligo surgery. • Suction blister grafting- It is especially used on lip and eyelid areas affected with loss of pigment. It doesn’t cause any scarring. For this to work, it is expected for vitiligo to have been stable for more than a year. • Melanocyte transplant – In this, top epidermal layer which has the white spots is pulled out. Then actively working melanocytes from healthy skin area are transplanted to the affected location. Within few months, the transferred cells start performing their normal function hence white patches starts disappearing.
