Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. There are many ways to treat the vitiligo, in this article I will introduce the two method that to treat the vitiligo. the first one is laser therapy, the second is the UV therapy.
Laser therapy can be used to shape the diamonds or cut steel, and the light from a laser which stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. This laser is turn to specific wavelengths. In medical, lasers allow surgeon to work at high level of precision by focusing on a small area. You may feel less pain, swelling, and scarring than the traditional surgery. But this therapy needs to repeat many times.
308-nm new excimer laser treatment is one of the laser therapies. The long wave, medium wave of UV or the photochemical, and 308nm excimer laser are based on the UV. But there are some differences between them. The medium wave treatment is safer and effective than the long wave UV. Because of medium wave UV are no need to take some orally medication. So the reaction is lighter after UV radiation. The advantage of new 308 nm excimer laser is similar with the narrow band UVB. It only effect to the local white patches, it not injure the normal part of skin, the power is high, and energy relieve fast. It has been generalized used in recent years, and it has an obvious treating effect. It can use alone, also combine with the other medication, it need to take a long time, it is very suitable use for the facial and cervical, and small white spot.
The another method is the UV treatment
Narrow UV treatment: the narrow wave UVB (NB-UVB) radiation will generate a biochemical reaction. The whole body will generate a photochemical impact, Neuron modulation effect, cell molecular efficacy after the radiation. It accelerates the vitiligo pathological infiltration in skin lesions areas. It plays an immunity regulation role by secret some cytokines. And activate the tyrosinase, promote the synthesis of the melancytes.
