What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is one of the most common hypopigmentation disorders characterized by progressive loss of melanocytes. The disease is seen at an average of 0.5-1% of the world population. Vitiligo affects all genders, all races and children equally.
Vitiligo is clinically manifested by the gradual decrease in skin color (acromic macules), especially in the face, arms-legs and genital area. This situation causes a negative aesthetic appearance in humans and affects people’s self-confidence. It is also considered as a multifactorial disease in which genetic, autoimmune and neurogenic (nerve-derived) elements play a role.
What Is Pigmenting Lotion Used For?
The pigment enhancer “Pigmenting Lotion” is used in the treatment of:
• Skin depigmentation caused by any kind of burn.
The lotion contains a substance that increases melanocytes and melanin and stimulates tyrosinase enzyme activity. In addition, the calcium in it actively supports the pigmentation process of the skin by stimulating the secretion effect of melanocytes.
The skin color obtained during the treatment process can become the same with the patient’s normal skin.
