Vitiligo is a skin condition in which a person’s immune system removes pigment from the skin at certain parts of the body. Vitiligo is believed to be hereditary and have no known cure. Yet Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center does have available cosmetic treatment options for Vitiligo.

Vitiligo refers to the development of white patches anywhere on the skin. The immune system destroys pigment-forming cells, or melanocytes, which causes loss of skin pigmentation. The condition affects men and women between age 10 and age 40. Vitiligo appears to be hereditary and there is no known cure or prevention.

Vitiligo usually affects areas of skin that have been exposed to the sun. It generally appears in body folds, near moles, or at the site of previous skin injury. Some treatments, such as steroid creams and UV light therapy, can improve the skin's appearance.
