The best solution
For Vitiligo, we use micropigmentation to implant bespoke pigment colours so the area looks the same as the surrounding skin. This process is often called Skin Camouflage.
Skin Camouflage and Medical Micropigmentation is more widely known and recognised by doctors and medical facilities. Micropigmentation is now being recommended as one of the best treatments available for Vitiligo sufferers. Micropigmentation stays in the skin for 2 to 3 years and if you choose a specialist correctly the skin tone match can be very close to the skin surrounding the affected area.
Before proceeding with micropigmentation to conceal Vitiligo you MUST have a Skin Tone Patch Test. During the patch test, we will mix several pigment shades to match your skin tone and apply to a test area of skin. 4 to 8 weeks is then required for the patch test results to be seen. Once a colour (mixed for your skin tone) has been decided the treatment course can go ahead. On average and as a guide, 2 to 4 treatment sessions per area are required depending on how your skin accepts the pigment.
Aftercare for this treatment plays a big part in its success. Avoiding sun and any chlorinated water for at least 4 weeks is important. Also, any heat or steam treatments must be avoided for the first 5 days after each treatment session. Prolonged protection of the skin to sunlight should also be adhered to as this in itself can cause Vitiligo in the skin.
Skin Patch Test (SPT)
A Skin Patch Test plays an important role in determining the pigment colours to use to match your skin colour and tone. Skin patch tests are usually performed at the initial consultation. At least 4 to 6 weeks is required to see the results, then the course of treatments sessions can start. For skin patch test cost see HERE.
Pigments and matching skin tones
For skin camouflage procedures we mix bespoke pigment colours tailored to each clients skin tone and colour. The skin is not one colour so we mix several colours and apply a series of dots to mimic the natural look of the skin. We adopt the latest skin camouflage techniques and have 20+ years of experience at mixing colours to match skin tones.
