MICROPIGMENTATION FOR VITILIGO
Micropigmentation for vitiligo is the process of restoring pigment in the parts of the skin that is affected by vitiligo, using specialized pigments and smart devices. Vitiligo is a skin condition where white patches/spots are developed on the skin and may spread over time. This is due to the lack of melanin produced by the skin and they can occur on any part of the body. When vitiligo is developed on the face, hands or other exposed areas, many may feel uncomfortable when they are around people.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MICROPIGMENTATION FOR VITILIGO?
- All paramedical micropigmentation procedures take at least 2 treatments. This may also vary depending on the skin, size of the treated area and the body reaction of the patient.
- Take note that micropigmentation for vitiligo is not a cure or prevention for vitiligo, but may camouflage the condition.
- To ensure that the pigment on the skin has fully stabilized and healed, treatments should be scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart.
- Some skin types may reject the pigments, so its important to get a proper assessment from a well-trained PMU artist.
