Vitiligo Treatment In Singapore: A Comprehensive Guide By A Medical Doctor

Vitiligo Treatment In Singapore: A Comprehensive Guide By A Medical Doctor

Vitiligo is an acquired skin condition where areas of the skin lose their pigment over time, resulting in the formation of white patches on the skin. Famous personalities living with vitiligo include Winnie Harlow (of America’s Next Top Model fame), Joe Rogan, Amitabh Bachchan, and most notably, of course, Michael Jackson. 

This is not a rare condition. In fact, as many as one in 100 people are estimated to be living with vitiligo. However, even though vitiligo is relatively common in our population, there are large gaps in knowledge regarding the condition in Singapore and Asia.

As a doctor who focuses on treating patients with vitiligo, I decided to write a guide to share my experiences. I will touch on the condition, how it is managed in Singapore, and methods with which people living with vitiligo can improve and maintain the health of not just their skin, but also their overall physical wellness.

Read on to find out more about:

  • What is vitiligo and what causes it?
  • What are the symptoms of vitiligo?
  • Who is more likely to get vitiligo?
  • Is vitiligo hereditary?
  • Can vitiligo go away by itself?
  • Can vitiligo be prevented?
  • How is vitiligo diagnosed?
  • Can vitiligo be cured?
  • How is vitiligo treated in Singapore?
  • When should I seek treatment for vitiligo?

While there might be many factors that contribute to skin health and reduced pore size, we need to understand the root cause of skin problems first rather than going for one treatment or another unthinkingly. After that, an appropriate treatment can be chosen based on your needs and lifestyle.

Dr Chin Yee Choong is the medical director of Dermclear Aesthetic & Laser Clinic. He gave some advice to DoctorxDentist readers about treatments for improving skin appearance. Here's what he had to share about medical aesthetic treatments available in Singapore.

Psychiatrist Dr Ng Beng Yeong recently answered questions from DoctorxDentist readers about who is most at risk for postnatal depression, and what the chances of having schizophrenia after childbirth could be. Here's what he had to share.
