Some people may ask that their vitiligo on face has influences their images all the time. And they have tried many methods but no effect. Is vitiligo incurable?
First, we need to make a clear understanding that is still a stubborn skin disease that have not been captured yet in medical field. Many doctors have tried various therapies to treat vitiligo, such as phototherapy, psoralen and ramification and ultraviolet ray. These methods can effect on melanophore that have not been destroyed completely or normal melanophore which are close to damaged cells in epidermis. And they can stimulate the cells function and make tyrosinase catalyze the synthesis of melanin. And then promote the split and movement of melanophore and make the pigment in white spot get recovered. Besides, in the immunosuppressive therapy, corticosteroid hormone will have some effects for vitiligo but the side effect is too serious.
Then,some hospital will use efficient narrow wave U - VB light therapy and it has some obvious effect on some patients. Some patients get vitiligo just because of their immunity system problems. Their own cells can not identify themselves and thus lead to the disease. Effective narrow wave UVB therapy can increase the immune globulin in local skin and activate human body and increase the phagocytic ability of white blood cells, and macrophages then to improve the immunity. At the same time, after UVB irradiation, there will be various activity factors to stimulate melanophore profile, generate melanin and move to depigmentation position. Then reach the purpose of treatment. If assisting with the medicine treatment, the effect will be much better.
Besides, in daily life,if you are not allergic to cosmetics, it would be better to use cover agent.But cover agent only temporarily solve the problem of the patient's face. If you want to get away from this "stubborn disease", patients still need to go to normal hospital in time for professional treatment. In addition, vitiligo patients should pay attention to preventing exposure, because there's no melanin in vitiligo patients and they are vulnerable to UV damage. Especially in the sunny season, vitiligo patients must complete their own protection and avoid excessive exposure in the sun.
