Vitiligo

Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin condition that affects over 62.4 million people worldwide. It occurs due to pigment-producing cells not functioning properly. Vitiligo may present as a loss of skin color to one or many different parts of the body.

The experience of living with vitiligo is different to each individual with the condition. For some, the loss of skin color, or pigment, is embraced and celebrated as part of the individual’s unique identity. For others, vitiligo can be emotionally challenging or even devastating as people’s behaviors toward those with vitiligo may be hurtful. This is often the result of the public’s general lack of understanding about the condition.

At Array, we believe everyone deserves the freedom to love the skin they are in. If someone with vitiligo desires treatment, narrowband UVB light therapy is an option for them. Narrowband UVB light therapy can activate pigment producing cells to begin producing one’s natural skin color again.

We treat frustrating symptoms of skin conditions with light therapy, so you can live brighter.

Light Therapy For Vitiligo

Light therapy is a commitment, and not a quick fix. Treatment is required two or three times each week and may be necessary to continue for several months, depending on the individual’s desired result.

We typically see some new pigment gain by 15-20 treatments, and more significant improvement around 30 treatments. Some body areas are more responsive to light therapy than others. For example, the face and neck usually improve quickly, while the hands and feet may require more treatments. When patients are satisfied with their level of improvement, we encourage them to take a break from light therapy and monitor their skin closely.

It’s important to keep in mind that while light therapy is the gold standard treatment for vitiligo, there is no cure for the condition. Many patients who gain pigment with light therapy keep their new pigment, while others can go on to lose it again in the future. If a patient notices white patches reappearing, we recommend they resume treatment again quickly to prevent further pigment loss.

If you have vitiligo and desire treatment, light therapy may be a good treatment option for you. Call today for a consultation with one of our licensed nurse practitioners.

Vitiligo Patient Stories

“I’m so happy. My friends tell me my face looks so good. I used to wear a lot of makeup to cover my vitiligo when I went to church or the store because if I didn’t, people would stare at me and it made me so uncomfortable. Now I can go out without any makeup on!”

“This treatment has made a huge difference in my life. As a Beverly Hills physician, how I present to patients is important. I’m much more confident now since I’m no longer worried patients will be distracted by my vitiligo. The results I’ve gained from phototherapy have even positively impacted my marriage. You have no idea how grateful I am.”
