For the Treatment of Vitiligo
If you, or someone you know, is among the estimated 1 to 2 million Americans with vitiligo, you may be able to enjoy a more even skin coloration with excimer laser treatments.
Vitiligo occurs when the skin’s pigment-producing cells die or stop producing melanin. While there’s no cure, vitiligo can now be treated effectively with excimer laser treatments, which use a specific, wavelength of light which is precisely targeted to stimulate the repigmentation of the skin, without impacting healthy skin. These laser treatments can minimize and, in many cases, even eliminate vitiligo depigmented patches.
Clinical studies with the XTRAC® laser have shown that, in some patients, repigmentation can begin within six to 12 treatments, and can often be obtained in 30 treatments or less.
The number of treatments needed can vary from person to person based on a variety of factors.
