Vitiligo occurs when the skin loses melanin, which is the pigment that determines skin, hair and eye color. This results when the cells that produce melanin are damaged or destroyed and can no longer produce natural pigment. It presents with gradually enlarging white patches on the skin. We offer several treatment options, including topical therapies as well as phototherapy with narrow band ultraviolet B light (NBUVB). Schedule an appointment at Myers Dermatology to discuss the best treatment options and establish a custom treatment plan for your vitiligo. Repigmentation of the skin is the ideal goal of treatment. We have years of expertise treating both adults and children with vitiligo.
