Vitiligo is an uncommon autoimmune condition of the skin, wherein the immune system attacks the pigment-producing skin cells (the melanocytes) and causes a temporary reduction in pigment. Clinically, this appears as white patches on the skin.
Patients with vitiligo often feel upset and self-conscious about their uneven skin tone. We can help by evaluating your skin and customizing a treatment plan for you. Sometimes, vitiligo is due to an underlying medical problem. We can help determine if there is a cause for your vitiligo and start appropriate treatment.
