If you feel self-conscious or have had negative reactions from others to your vitiligo, we invite you to visit our cosmetic experts at Manhattan Medspa soon. We understand that it can be comforting and renewing experience to achieve a more aesthetic appearance in your skin color, so we offer advanced treatments for vitiligo in New York, New York. However, these treatments cannot prevent the continued loss of skin color or the possible recurrence of vitiligo. And because vitiligo appears as a loss of skin color in patches, it is one of the more noticeable skin conditions.
Our treatments work to even out the discoloration of your skin, which is caused by the loss of melanin in the skin. So, while vitiligo can affect all skin types, it can appear more dramatic in those with darker skin tones. It is also known to make individuals more susceptible to sunburn and skin cancer, but it is not life-threatening or contagious in any way. Also known as skin camouflaging treatment, vitiligo treatments can help you achieve a more even skin tone and regular appearance.
We ask that you do not apply makeup before your treatment. Following your treatment, make sure to avoid UV exposure as well as Alpha-hydroxy and Retin-A products for at least 10 days. And although we will provide you with a topical anesthetic, you may experience a slight amount of discomfort during your treatment.
