Dr. Lim just approved this for me as it is 40 minutes to treatment each way and getting harder with work. I am just wondering if it will be a big machine as well, how would I operate it alone, and where would I put it?
Would love to hear from someone who has done this.
And - I am not even sure yet if my insurance will cover it yet.
Have a great day!
I use Dermalume 2X from National Biological Corp. UVB Narrowband. Use it twice a week. Improvement is slow. If nothing else, it stops the spread.

This also raises another question, has anyone noticed increase in their vitiligo post/during the use of antibiotics?
Thank you all in advance.
It didn't affect mine. Got 3 shots, not change in my spots.
If anyone would be so kind as to answer this question. I know everyone’s spots are different and unique, but was just getting a sense of an idea on what’s going on with my hands. Even though this can be different for everyone, this helps me get a bit calm in understanding how it happened to others, plus I LOVE hearing everyone’s story about how it started with vitiligo.
