For many years we have specialized in pigment failures of the skin. There are many different kinds of aetiologically distinct disorders leading to white patches of the skin. Also the most common type, “Vitiligo,” consists of several different subgroups with heterogenic background.
In an evaluation process we define and classify your type of skin condition and its status. This guides us to the treatment regimen which will be most likely to lead to a successful outcome.
As well as individualized pharmacological treatment approaches, we offer state of the art transplantation methods to restore the loss of pigmentation by transplantation of your own pigment cells. We have developed the Gold Standard of transplantation methods, all of which are documented and published in leading international scientific and medical journals. In principle we plant new pigment cells (melanocytes) in the affected white area. We also offer the latest treatment in the field of UVB-therapy, using targeted treatment which focuses a beam of the optimal wavelength directly to the vitiligo spots, sparing the uninvolved, normally pigmented skin.
Let us help you to find out what treatment option is best for your condition. ”There is always something that can be done to improve the condition.”
A consultation 20 minutes cost 900 SKr (about 135 USD) and can be requested at:
08-xx xxx xx (national call)
+46-8 xx xxx xx (international call)
A telephone consultation can also be requested on the e-mail address above for patients living far from Stockholm. In that case background material such as the history of the condition (anamnesis) and digitalized pictures of the skin lesions first have to be sent to us for evaluation. The cost for a telephone consultation is the same.
After more than 25 years in the field we know Vitiligo and how to fight it!
International Vitiligo Center has in November 2016 initiated a new collaboration with a treatment center in Geneva, Switzerland. For more info See www.swissvitiligocenter.com.
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.

New Vitiligo device:
In September 2011 The International Vitiligo Center has finalized an agreement to be a European agent
for the new targeted (focused) UBV device Levia® for the effective treatment of vitiligo.
