Social Pressure on Vitiligo Patients | Fight it With Microskin

Vitiligo is a common skin condition related to the discoloration of skin in patches which spreads on the outer skin of the body.  Vitiligo patients in India often face a cruel social pressure which they do not deserve for sure. In India, many people also call this disease a result of the wrongdoings in their past lives and patients are blamed for their lesions. This undue pressure causes psychological stress on the patients and with time many patients go under depression too. A harmless disease like Vitiligo becomes a serious cause of concern due to social stigma and the many cosmetic reasons & expectations attached to it. However, there are ways to conceal Vitiligo patches which can help avoid social pressure and make better first impressions.Social Pressure on Vitiligo Patients

Microskin To Conceal Vitiligo Patches

Microskin is the new revolutionary cosmetic skin correction formula that covers up vitiligo patches and corrects skin discoloration. This light semi-liquid foundation-like application is put on the outer skin to hide the depigmented circles. The main difference between Microskin and other cosmetic camouflage treatment is, it does not rub off easily on clothing and stays longer on the skin. It is also water-proof & smudge-proof. Unlike other cosmetic applications, it allows the skin to breathe and suits almost everyone.

The vitiligo surgeon custom prepares this cream to match an individual patient’s skin color, with maximum precision. Microskin can be applied through a stipple or airbrush, as suggested by the doctor. Depending on skin types and a particular part of the body, Microskin stays on the skin for several days and a slight touch up can give an even longer lasting result. This liquidized skin-color corrector does not give any makeup effect but makes the affected skin look more natural.

Microskin is the best solution for the social pressure that vitiligo patients face every day. Be it a party or interview or any social gathering, Microskin helps in creating a normal-like first impression for them. Once applied, Microskin stays on the skin for several days and does not wash off. It’s a layer of cream that sticks to the skin allowing it to breathe and fade away gradually with time. This is what makes it different from normal foundation cream. Its easy self-application makes it preferable for daily wear or for such events as patients can apply the cream by themselves.

Dr. Munish Paul, Dermatologist & Vitiligo Surgeon, recommends Microskin due to its safe and easy application. The vitiligo surgeons/Dermatologists prepare the right shade matching the real skin tone for individual patients. Patients can bring home the application and apply by themselves on the depigmented area to cover the white patches. The application can be done through a spray or sponge rub. Microskin not only hides white patches but also helps patients to stand confidently in society with an even tone skin.

Melanocyte Cell Transplantation or MCT as Vitiligo Treatment

This surgical approach is now being considered as “may be a cure”. Unfortunately, science is still not able to find a permanent cure for this condition but there are many cases where Melanocyte Cell Transplantation (MCT) Melanocyte Keratinocyte Transplant Procedure (MKTP) as Vitiligo Treatment has made wonders.

The new approach to treat vitiligo is cellular grafting. This surgical approach is now being considered as “may be a cure”. Unfortunately, science is still not able to find a permanent cure for this condition but there are many cases where Melanocyte Cell Transplantation (MCT) Melanocyte Keratinocyte Transplant Procedure (MKTP) as Vitiligo Treatment has made wonders. The idea of MCT is to remove the top layer of pigmented skin and replace it with healthy pigment cells (melanocytes) taken from another part of the body. Within a few months, the transplanted melanocytes start making pigment and deposit it to the surrounding areas. The success of this treatment wipes away the white spots and, in many cases, it has worked like magic. Patients with successful results don’t need any standard vitiligo treatments after that. However, not everyone is the right candidate for this Treatment of Vitiligo.

A Deep Insight into Melanocyte Cell Transplantation:

Vitiligo or white spots start appearing on the skin when immune cells sneak into the skin to find melanocytes and kill them. Melanocytes are the cells that produce pigment in our skin. So killing melanocytes stops the pigment production process and skin starts to lose its color.

In this Melanocyte Cell Transplantation (MCT) treatment, new melanocytes are transferred to the affected area. But, the immune cells active in that area kill the new melanocytes too which drives failure of this Vitiligo Treatment. This treatment shows higher success rate only if the disease is stable where the immune cells are quiet and no longer destroying the melanocytes. In such condition, the new melanocytes start working and bring the original skin color back. Now, the problem is, it is very difficult to know when the disease is stable. In common practice, the Dermatologist carries out this treatment only if the patient has no lesions from last 1-2 years.

This Vitiligo Treatment appears to be excellent for, segmental vitiligo patients. As in the segmental vitiligo, the disease is limited to one portion of the body, chances of success rates appear to be higher. 80-90% of such cases have seen success and may never require further vitiligo treatment. That’s the reason why this treatment is addressed as “may be a cure” which is normally never used for any other vitiligo treatment.

In Cellular grafting or Melanocyte Cell Transplantation (MCT), the top layer of the affected area’s skin is removed and melanocytes & other skin cells from normal skin is transplanted into that area. Among all other Vitiligo Treatment procedures, cellular grafting has appeared to be the most successful one until now. In medical terms, this process is also called as Melanocyte-Keratinocyte Transplant Procedure or MKTP.

But, I know only a few centers around the world that offer this treatment. This was the biggest reason I have started offering this treatment into my own SKIN LASER CENTRE. Here, we not only offer treatment but also provide post-treatment care to ensure the complete success of this process. This procedure requires special equipment and professional training. At our center, we have experienced excellent success rate for MKTP so far. As per my opinion and experience, it is the best Vitiligo Treatment for right patients, whom we decide after a careful series of examination. This procedure is a bit costly than others and thus I suggest the treatment only to the patients who fulfill the prerequisite health conditions.
