Laser Therapies

Laser treatment of vitiligo

The Lémanic Clinic is the first in Switzerland to use the revolutionary techniques of the Excimer Laser for the re-pigmentation of vitiligo patches and other pigmentations of various origins such as scarring.

Indications

  • Vitiligo must not be too widespread.
  • Various kinds of de-pigmentation.

Technique

The Excimer Laser produces UV rays with a wavelength of around 308nm, which allows it to have a very precise impact on the chosen target in a short space of time. The treatment is painless and does not require any medication to betaken. This technique is particularly well suited to patients who present with a case of vitiligo that is not too severe.

Program

  • A minimum of 10 treatments should be estimated, allowing 2 per week, followed by 1 per week.
  • Depending on the skin's phototype, good results can be seen after only a few treatments.

 Results

  • Good to excellent (especially on the face).
  • Variables for the hands and feet.
  • Some cases do not respond to treatment.

Advantages of the technique

  • Good results are possible where certain classic treatments have failed.
  • The highly selective exposure only treats affected zones, sparing healthy areas.
  • compared to conventional phototherapy: fewer treatments needed for a markedly superior cosmetic result.
Interesting facts
  • Suitable for patients presenting more localised cases of vitiligo.
