Living with Vitiligo

logo of American Academy od Dermatology

Vitiligo is a condition that cosmetically affects a person’s skin, causing it to lose pigment. Pigment is what gives skin its color, and it is produced by cells called melanocytes (thus, another word for pigment is “melanin.”) Vitiligo can equally affect both men and women, and while it affects all races equally, it is more noticeable in people with dark skin. There is no cure for Vitiligo, but it can be treated and managed throughout a person’s entire life. Dr. Jamie Weisman founded Medical Dermatology Specialists to provide patients with a new level of skin care.

Vitiligo is a skin condition that is very different from other skin conditions. Because there is no known cure for this condition, many doctors have found little success in helping patients. However, Dr. Weisman and her entire team are dedicated to helping patients who have any type of skin condition that negatively affects their quality of life. Patients find that their confidence sores at Medical Dermatology Specialists because of the dedication that Dr. Weisman applies to all patients. Dr. Weisman has earned national recognition as a dermatologist who specializes in the role that autoimmune disease has on skin disorders.
