"Vitiligo is a persistent skin condition that involves white areas of skin caused by a lack of melanin, the pigment that gives skin, hair, and eyes color.Vitiligo can affect any part of the skin, but it is most common on the face, neck, and hands. When a person has the illness, the pigment cells called melanocytes are lost, resulting in irregularly formed white patches on the skin."

Why excimer laser?

Excimer is a non-invasive laser treatment that offers a targeted and effective approach for promoting repigmentation in vitiligo patches.

Excimer laser treatment utilizes a focused beam of ultraviolet (UV) B light to target and stimulate repigmentation in the affected areas of the skin. The excimer laser emits a specific wavelength of UVB light that is directed only at the vitiligo patches, sparing the surrounding healthy skin.

Five of the most impressive benefits offered by Excimer Laser:
  • Targeted Treatment. Excimer laser emits a specific wavelength of ultraviolet (UV) B light that selectively targets the vitiligo patches. This targeted approach helps to deliver the therapeutic effects directly to the affected areas.
  • Repigmentation. The UVB light from the excimer laser stimulates the melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in the skin, to produce melanin. This promotes repigmentation of the depigmented patches, helping to restore color to the affected areas.
  • Minimized Side Effects. The focused nature of excimer laser treatment reduces the risk of adverse effects on unaffected skin. The laser only targets the vitiligo patches.
  • Customizable Treatment. Excimer laser therapy allows for precise control over the dosage and duration of the treatment. This flexibility enables dermatologists to customize the treatment based on the individual's skin type, extent of vitiligo.
  • Non-invasive: Excimer laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure that does not require any surgical incisions. It is considered a safe and well-tolerated option for vitiligo management.

What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a patchy skin discoloring or whitening due to lacking melanocytes. Men and women of all racial and skin tones, as well as both genders, are equally susceptible to the illness. But if you have an autoimmune disorder like Hashimoto's (thyroid disease), alopecia areata (hair loss), or a close blood family with Vitiligo, your risk of having it rises. There are several sub types of Vitiligo, including:

Generalized Vitiligo: The most common type of Vitiligo causes macules in various places on your body.  
Segmental Vitiligo: It is a type that only affects one side or part of your body or a particular area, such as your hands, face ,or legs.
Localized Vitiligo: Vitiligo does not have a wide range of symptoms. It can affect a single body part (focal vitiligo) or your mucous membranes (mucosal vitiligo).
Focal Vitiligo: A rare form of Vitiligo called focal Vitiligo develops when the macules stay in one or two areas and do not migrate outward in a predictable way.
Universal Vitiligo: A rare type of Vitiligo causes more than 80% of your body not to develop pigmentation.
Mixed Vitiligo:
It is a type when several vitiligos happen at the same time.


What causes Vitiligo?

While it is known that vitiligo is caused by a lack of melanin, it is not entirely clear what causes this depletion.Melanin is the pigmentation of the skin that is produced in the body by melanocyte cells.

Vitiligo is largely thought to be an autoimmune disorder in which the body's antibodies assault these melanocytes. Because they are destroyed, the damaged area of skin is unable to produce pigment, resulting in white spots on the skin.Given that many persons with vitiligo also have other conditions including Graves' disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the idea that it is an autominnue disorder is reinforced.



Asked By Others

How does excimer laser treatment work for vitiligo?


Excimer laser treatment works by delivering a controlled dose of ultraviolet light to the affected areas of the skin. This stimulates the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. The laser is targeted specifically to the depigmented patches of vitiligo, sparing the surrounding healthy skin. Over a series of treatments, the repigmentation process can occur, gradually reducing the visibility of the vitiligo patches.

Is excimer laser treatment painful?

Generally, excimer laser treatment is well-tolerated and minimally uncomfortable. Some individuals may experience a slight sensation of warmth or tingling during the procedure. However, the treatment is usually brief, lasting only a few minutes, and any discomfort is temporary. The dermatologist may apply a cooling gel or use air cooling during the procedure to enhance comfort.

How long does each excimer laser treatment session last?

The duration of each excimer laser treatment session depends on the size and extent of the vitiligo patches being treated. Typically, a session can last anywhere from a few minutes to around 15 minutes. The exact duration will be determined by the dermatologist during the initial consultation and may vary throughout the course of treatment.

How many excimer laser treatment sessions are required for vitiligo?

The number of excimer laser treatment sessions needed for vitiligo varies from person to person. It depends on factors such as the extent of the vitiligo, the response to treatment, and individual skin characteristics. In general, multiple sessions are required, typically ranging from 20 to 30 sessions spread over several weeks or months. The dermatologist will determine the treatment plan based on the specific needs and progress of each patient.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with excimer laser treatment?

Excimer laser treatment for vitiligo is considered safe and has minimal associated risks. However, some potential side effects may include temporary redness, itching, or dryness in the treated areas. In rare cases, there may be slight blistering or hyperpigmentation. It is important to follow the dermatologist's instructions for aftercare and to protect the treated skin from excessive sun exposure. Discuss any concerns or specific medical conditions with your dermatologist before undergoing the treatment.

How effective is excimer laser treatment for vitiligo?

Excimer laser treatment has shown promising results in repigmenting the skin affected by vitiligo. However, the effectiveness may vary depending on factors such as the extent of vitiligo, the individual's response to treatment, and adherence to the treatment plan. It is best to consult with a dermatologist to assess your specific case and determine the potential benefits of excimer laser treatment for you.

How long does it take to see results from excimer laser treatment?

The timeframe for seeing results from excimer laser treatment can vary. Some individuals may start noticing improvements after a few sessions, while others may require several weeks or months of treatment before significant repigmentation occurs. Patience is key, as the repigmentation process takes time and varies from person to person.

How long do the results of excimer laser treatment last?

The longevity of results from excimer laser treatment can vary from person to person. In some cases, the repigmentation achieved through excimer laser treatment can be long-lasting. However, vitiligo is a chronic condition, and there is a possibility of new patches forming or existing patches spreading over time. Maintenance sessions or other treatments may be needed to manage the condition and maintain the results.
