At Arogin we have an individualized management of vitiligo which is dependent of vitiligo parameters like type of vitiligo, present stage of vitiligo, extent of vitiligo and patient’s parameters like age, lifestyle, stress levels, psychosocial aspects, familial and personal responsibilities and commitments also give importance in this approach.
Management of vitiligo is divided as follows:
This is the first step. Vitiligo Panel of Tests are done to identify the underlying parameters in the blood which contribute the induction and progression of vitiligo. Based on this we follow a target-based treatment approach.
- Understanding the Vitiligo-
Patients are educated about the possible cause of their condition.
At our Centre we help patients to transform a phenotype (appearance of white patches due to genetic defects +inducing factors) to a genotype (no white patch due to the targeted management of inducing factors but you will be having the genetic defect which will be dormant).
Since there is no specific way for eliminating genotype especially in vitiligo, one needs to focus on maintaining it as genotype with out manifesting in to phenotype.
