At the Asarch Center, we can help patients in Colorado who are dealing with Vitiligo. Though vitiligo is not contagious or life-threatening, it can be life-altering. Some patients with Vitiligo experience low self-esteem, have difficulty in social situations and may develop serious depression. How you cope with vitiligo is a personal choice and many people choose to connect with others who have the same skin condition.
What is Vitiligo?
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.
Where Does Vitiligo Occur?
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.
How is Vitiligo Treated?
We offer treatment for vitiligo in Denver at the Asarch Dermatology and Laser in Englewood, CO with thePharos Excimer Laser, approved by the FDA in 2000. The Pharos Excimer Laser is recognized by dermatologists worldwide as the leading laser used to treat both psoriasis and vitiligo.
What is The Pharos Excimer Laser
The Pharos Excimer Laser 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 Pharos Excimer Laser treatments, improvement was documented within 11 treatments, with 75% re- pigmentation to facial spots.
