Vitiligo is a skin condition and autoimmune disease that occurs in about 1% of the world’s population. In this skin condition, the skin loses pigment. As a result, milk-white areas are created that differ in shape and size. These places can expand over the years.
This condition is usually found around orifices and pressure points, such as the hands and feet. Vitiligo spots are also relatively more common in body folds, on mucous membranes and on highly pigmented areas such as the face and genitals.
At Huidzorg West you can get camouflage therapy for vitiligo. A self-tanning cream can also make the contrast between the white patches and the normal skin tone a little less striking. We are happy to give you advice or training on how best to apply this. By using a special fixing product, the camouflage is resistant to water and smudging. We also offer good sun protection products.
The following methods are used for this condition:
The cause of vitiligo is unknown. There are a few factors that can play a role in the development of vitiligo:
Your body’s immune system, which destroys the body’s own pigment cells
