White Patches on Face Treatment

White patches can sometimes start in the face – around the lips or near the eyelids for some people causing distress as the physical appearance is compromised. When the white patches start on the face, treatment has to be started immediately since curbing the spread in the exposed areas is vital. In the initial stages of vitiligo, a cure for Vitiligo can be easily achieved when treatment is started early with Drcheena® homeopathic treatment.

The treatment options for white patches on the face, including those associated with vitiligo, can vary depending on the individual’s situation. Here are some common treatment approaches:

1. Topical Corticosteroids: These are commonly prescribed as first-line treatment for vitiligo and can help to re-pigment the white patches. Corticosteroid creams or ointments are applied to the affected areas to reduce inflammation and promote pigmentation. Their efficacy is very low though.

2. Topical Calcineurin Inhibitors: Medications like tacrolimus (Protopic) and pimecrolimus (Elidel) are alternative options for treating facial vitiligo. These creams suppress the body’s immune mechanism and sometimes can have several side effects.

3. Topical Psoralen plus Ultraviolet A (PUVA): PUVA therapy involves applying a topical Psoralen medication to the white patches, followed by exposure to ultraviolet A (UVA) light. This treatment stimulates melanocytes to produce melanin and is sometimes effective in re-pigmenting the skin.

4. Excimer Laser: This laser therapy delivers targeted ultraviolet B (UVB) light to the white patches, stimulating re-pigmentation of the skin. It is often used for localized areas on the face and can be an effective treatment option.

5. Micropigmentation (Tattooing): In cases where other treatments are not successful, micropigmentation can be an option. This option can be availed when white patches are around the lips to match the skin color.

6. Cosmetic Camouflage: The use of makeup or cosmetic products specially designed to conceal white patches can help improve the appearance of vitiligo on the face. These products can provide temporary coverage and are readily available.

7. Drcheena® homeopathic treatment can help when treatment is started early as soon as the initial diagnosis is made. Drcheena® homeopathic treatment helps curb the spread of white patches immediately. When white patches are present in exposed areas, care should be taken as soon as possible. Drcheena® homeopathic treatment can completely cure vitiligo in the face when treated early. Children show great results with Drcheena® homeopathic treatment and many children who previously suffered from white patches on their faces have become completely normal with no discernable difference.
