About Vitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition resulting from loss of pigment which produces white patches. Any part of the body may be affected. Common areas of involvement are the face, lips, hands, arms, legs, and genital area. Unlike conventional light therapies, the XTRAC excimer laser delivers a highly targeted therapeutic beam of UVB light to areas of the skin affected by Vitiligo. Some cases we use NBUVB light therapies
