Vitiligo is a skin condition which causes the skin to lose color, leaving behind patches of lighter skin. The amount of coloring lost varies from person to person and Vitiligo can affect people of all races and ethnicities. The cause of vitiligo remains unknown and can appear at any age, affecting 1 out of every 100 Americans.
Vitiligo usually affects the skin, but it can develop anywhere that you have pigment. Patches of your hair can turn white and some people even lose color inside their mouths or on the eyes.
We offer treatment for vitiligo in Denver at the Asarch Center for Dermatology and Laser in Englewood, CO with the XTRAC Excimer Laser, approved by the FDA in 2000. XTRAC is recognized by dermatologists worldwide as the leading laser used to treat both psoriasis and vitiligo.
The XTRAC system uses a precision-focused UVB beam of light and is effective in treating vitiligo, a skin condition evidenced by the absence of melanin, the skin’s primary pigment. In a recent clinical study of 32 patients with vitiligo, undergoing XTRAC treatments, improvement was documented within 11 treatments, with 75% re- pigmentation to facial spots.
