Laser therapy for vitiligo
Q: I am suffering from vitiligo (affecting lower lips and neack) for five years. I have taken allopathic medicines prescribed by Dr. Balasubramanium, Trichy. Now I am interested in laser treatment by Mrs. Radhika Reddy skin specilist and beautician (address:Angels advanced beauty clinic, 2B, Avenue, T53-99, Opposite 14 shops, Rejeswari Mansion, Anna Nagar, Chennai - 40. Ph : 044-6212547, 6213468). The cost of treatment is Rs. 30,000/- for 1 hour. I request you to give me advise regarding laser treatment, its side effects and your opinion.
A:Laser therapy for vitiligo is in no way superior to PUVA therapy being used all over the world and thus not worth spending money on - further it does not guarantee any cure.
