Dr Dhawan Offer a Cure for Vitiligo Patches on the Skin

Patients in the areas of Fremont and Milpitas, CA who are dealing with vitiligo may be seeking treatment or even a cure for this skin disorder. Vitiligo can make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance due to patches on the skin. Patients have what appears to be color loss to patches of skin that may be in one area, or can spread

Is there a cure?

At this point, there is no cure for vitiligo. However, patients do have the option of treating it with a variety of methods. Spreading of vitiligo may be stopped with the use of certain medications or other treatments. Drs. Sunil Dhawan, Shurong Chang, and Robert Roth can describe the treatment options to patients who come into their practice for an evaluation.

How does vitiligo form?

Many patients want to know why they developed it. The doctors of the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery believe that an autoimmune disorder causes vitiligo. The body mistakenly attacks the melanocytes present in the skin. There is a possibility that some patients develop the disorder due to genetics and a predisposition to this and other conditions.

Treatment for vitiligo

There are several treatment options for patients with vitiligo:
  • Topicals
  • Sunscreens
  • UV therapy
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Immunosuppressive medications
  • Steroids
  • XTRAC laser
Determining which treatment is right for you is achieved during an evaluation.
