Vitiligo is not life threatening or contagious, but people who have the condition often experience lowered self-esteem because their irregular skin tone is obvious and distracting to others. This condition effects people of all races and genders, and is thought to be caused by genetics or an autoimmune disorder.
There are two types of vitiligo: segmental (unilateral) vitiligo that only affects one area of the body and will eventually stop spreading, or non-segmental (bilateral) vitiligo that appears on both sides of the body and begins either on your extremities or near your eyes.
There are many different treatment options available for those with vitiligo, including:
Our dermatologist can help you determine which treatment method is recommended for the type of vitiligo you have.
