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!
Does anyone use a IV lamp or laser phototherapy at home. Has it been successful? Which one do you use? Can you please share a link
Yes have bought dermfix for my son. Have only been using it for a few days now. The instructions manual is very limited. Does anyone else use it. Some tips will be great
For those who had effective re-pigmentation with home use handheld machine, do you use narrow band 311 UVB or latest excimer laser with 308 wavelength UVB?
I am going through menopause and developed dark patches of Melasma on my cheeks. I also have small white patches of vitiligo. Being brown I am now 3 colours on my face!. My vitiligo appears trauma induced and is present on elbows, arms and knees.
I wonder when the melasma goes if vitiligo will replace the dark patches? Has anyone experienced this?
I am from india, my son is having vitiligo. from 6 years we have been using different ayurvedic treatments over the years but its spreading. the major problem for me is the diet that comes with ayurvaedic treatment cannot vive give any food that is sour ( citric / Vitamin c ) and many more.

I looked into the clinics that does the laser but it’s so expensive and my insurance doesn’t cover it
Saw this post from 3 months ago but didn’t see any responses. Very interested as I recently got diagnosed
I used a cream called Protopic 0,1%
For the first 3 months it removed a spot on my neck. After a while it stopped working and the spread of my vitiligo started to increase.
I also was recommended to take vitamin D tablets (1000 ICU) and Zinc. I have found that the spread is not reversing or slowing down. Seeing that there actually isn't really a cure, I have come to a point where I have stopped using the creams.
If so, have you experienced success? I am researching for possible treatment for my 10 year old. Topicals and phototherapy have been giving her anxiety and I'm trying to find alternative treatments for now.
No, but please post if you get good results.
