After 20 years, vitiligo has come back with a vengeance on my face. My doctor is having a hard time locating topical and oral psolaren. Can you please help me locate it? I have not started any treatment, so the "Dermapen" is not correct. The application apparatus made me choose a treatment or it would not submit.
There is a new treatment that is going to change how vitiligo is currently being treated. It actually activates the pigment cells to produce melanin and it decreases the inflammation caused by the condition rather than psoralen, which just makes you more sensitive to light. It is called Melanotan and it requires an injection a few times a week. Too much to discuss here but if you are interested, please call the office at 408-867-7400 for info.
