International Vitiligo Center



Welcome to the webpage of the International Vitiligo Center!

The International Vitiligo Center is a private specialized clinic founded by Dr. Mats J. Olsson, Vitiligo Specialist with more than 25 years experience in the specialized field of Vitilgo and Pigmentation.

The aim and intent of the International Vitiligo Center is to respond to a need and demand from patients to obtain an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of their skin condition. The Center also conducts academic research collaborations in the field of pigmentation to constantly be at the leading edge of knowledge in the field and offer the best available treatments with scientifically proven medical benifits to our patients.

There are many different causes of loss of pigmentation and also the most common one, Vitiliogo, consists of several subgroups of different aetiological background.

We have developed the pigment cell (melanocyte) transplantation methods which today are the Gold Standard in the surgical treatment of Vitiligo.

We have also acquired the latest light therapy unit, enabling targeted treatment with focused UVB light at the optimal wavelength to treat progressive vitiligo lesions.

We invite you to contact us to discuss your specific condition. We will work hard to help you improve your skin condition with the most suitable treatment regimen.



After more than 25 years in the field we know Vitiligo and how to fight it!

Together with Colorado University in USA (Professor Richard Spritz) we are conducting a new vitiligo study there we look on what specific genes are involved in the development of vitiligo. At the Vitiligo Society meeting in Stockholm , May 24 2014, we will collect samples from all patients who would like to participate in the study. The sample is easy to collect (just a saliva sample), and there is no costs involved in participation. This type of study aim to understand the underlying factors better and thereby in the near future be able to direct a more precise and effective treatment.
