Vitiligo surgery

Are you suffering and hiding your skin because of the white patches? Don’t bother anymore. Skino Logixs aids you to have a Vitiligo free skin. Vitiligo (Leucoderma) in our clinic is diagnosed clinically by a doctor looking at the white patches presented over the skin. However, everything that looks white is not necessarily Vitiligo. Hence, our dermatologist (doctors specialized in treating skin diseases) conduct an analysis and evaluation of the white spots to assess the condition accurately using various tests.
From these analysis the expert would suggest an appropriate treatment to deal with the functioning of treatment. There are various surgical modalities to treat Vitiligo.

How is it administered?

The major goal to be achieved is the complete re-pigmentation and cosmetically matching the normal skin. The choice of surgical treatment depends on the patient’s extent of Vitiligo, the sites involved, the availability of equipment, and the expertise of the surgeon.
Various surgical methods includes tissue grafts and cellular grafts:
