5 Vitiligo Treatment Options

Being the experienced Vitiligo Treatment Centres in Singapore, Novena Vitiligo Medical Centre adopts modern technology and facilities to cure vitiligo. Drawing from a wealth of international resources, we utilise a multi-step, multi-pronged approach to help our patients at every stage of their condition.

Treatment options for vitiligo are largely dependent on the location and extent of pigment loss. Early diagnosis and initiation of treatment at an early stage tends to have better long term outcomes. Treatment can range from medication, to light therapy as well as melanocyte transplantation. At our centre, we utilise a combination of different treatment modalities to optimise patient outcomes.

U.S. 308nm VTRAC Excimer Laser Treatment System

A modern system which utilises targeted phototherapy to rapidly deliver concentrated dosings of ultra-narrowband UV light to specific areas of affected skin, while minimising exposure to healthy skin.

Waldmann UV Therapy System UV5002

For patients with larger areas of affected skin, our phototherapy booth allows patients to receive treatment all at once. With in built UV sensor systems for precise dosimetry and a designated temperature cooling system, patients can receive treatment in comfort with peace of mind.

Medication

We have formulated a special blend of oral antioxidants which have been shown to have a synergistic effect with our other therapies for treatment of vitiligo. In addition, there are 4 types of medication for external application available for prescription, to deal with different patients’ age, affected areas and onset time. These prescriptions are available exclusively at the clinic, prescribed under the supervision of our doctor.

Micro-blister Grafting

Very small blisters (micro-blisters) are formed over unaffected skin by means of a specialised device. These micro-blisters are then transferred to areas affected by vitiligo.

Melanocyte Transfer

Melanocyte cells are suspended from a harvested portion of skin from an unaffected area and transferred onto depigmented areas of skin.
