Vitiligo is a skin disorder that can cause skin to lose color, creating patches of lighter skin on various areas of the body. The cause of this condition is unknown and the skin disorder is not contagious or life-threatening. Vitiligo may affect your self-confidence about your appearance and lead you to seek treatment. If you live in Gwinnett County, vitiligo treatment at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville can help you achieve lasting relief.

Symptoms of Vitiligo

The symptoms of vitiligo include patches of lightened skin on body areas typically exposed to the sun. Some individuals may experience slight itching or burning sensations in the affected area. Genetics and autoimmune disorders can put an individual at higher risk for this chronic skin condition.

Types of Vitiligo

There are four types of vitiligo that Lawrenceville individuals in Gwinnett County can experience. Generalized vitiligo is the most common form of this skin disorder and features a random scatter of pigmentation across the face and body. With universal vitiligo, over 80% of the body may be affected. Focal vitiligo features missing pigmentation skin patches in localized areas of the body. Acrofacial vitiligo typically occurs only on the hands or face.

A Lawrenceville dermatologist in Gwinnett County can recommend the best treatment option for your needs.

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
