Vitiligo is a non-contagious skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose pigmentation. Around 1 percent of the population are affected by vitiligo and although not life-threatening, it can cause distress due to its unusual appearance. If you’re feeling self-conscious as a result of your vitiligo, rest assured that our experts will aim to help restore your confidence.
Vitiligo can occur at any age and on any part of the body. It is caused when the cells that produce melanin stop functioning or die altogether, but the rate and extent of colour loss is unpredictable. In some cases, vitiligo can affect the hair, eyes and inside of the mouth.
Although no medication can stop vitiligo, there are options that help to improve the skin’s appearance, either alone or in combination with light therapy.
