What is a Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by patches of skin that lose their pigment, resulting in discoloration. The exact cause of vitiligo is unknown, but it is believed to be an autoimmune condition in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the pigment-producing cells in the skin. Vitiligo can affect any part of the body and can have a significant impact on a person's self-esteem and quality of life. There is no cure for vitiligo, but there are treatments available to help restore the skin's color, including:

  1. Topical medications 

  2. Light therapy 

  3. Microskin pigmentation

  4. Tattooing

  5. Surgical procedures (such as skin grafts and melanocyte transplantation)

  6. Camouflage cosmetics
