Excimer laser is also a option where laser light is put on vitiligo patches. One should understand here is that laser can only give recovery on white patches which has got black hairs on it. Vitiligo patches with white hair and or patches on finger tips do not get any recovery with this treatment. This is also a costly treatment and patient need to visit doctor clinic on regular basic.
Clinical studies at Kayakalp has shown that speed of recovery with Kayakalp treatment is at par with Excimer laser treatment and is also cost effective.
TATTOO/ Micro pigmentation
Many patients has got stigma about white patches and want to conceal white patches. Some patient ask me about making a Tattoo on white patches.
I want to inform you that this is a bad idea to make tattoo over a vitiligo patch. There are many clinics and you tube videos which show that you can put a skin matching color in vitiligo patch.
These videos does not show what happen after 6 months or one year of micro pigmentation.
I will like to share some of the pics of patient who had done micro pigmentation few months back with skin matching color but after few months this color get oxidized and become blue or different shade.
I have never come across a patient who is happy after one year of this treatment and worse part is that this treatment is irreversible and cannot be undone if you do not like after few months.
