I was very happy with this office. The office itself was attractive, clean, and very comfortable. All of the employees were very kind and helpful and Dr. Badia was wonderful. I will continue to use this office and recommend it to my friends and family.

Interesting Case —Vitiligo

Vitiligo - Treated at Florida Skin Center
Vitiligo Vitiligo

This is a 16 year-old patient who came to our office for white spots on her chin (picture on left). She stated she has had the spots for a long time and was prescribed a topical cream in the past that helped diminish them. Just recently the spots have come back and are becoming more prominent. They do not itch, hurt or burn.

What does this patient have? Read More >

This patient has a skin condition called Vitiligo. The exact cause of Vitiligo is unknown. It is thought to be associated with autoimmune conditions. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder. Melanocytes are responsible for producing pigment in our skin. Vitiligo can be a devastating disease especially those with ethnic skin. Vitiligo can be diagnosed by using a special lamp called a Wood's Lamp.

Wood's Lamp examination is a diagnostic test in which the skin or hair is examined while exposed to the black light. In Vitiligo patients the lighter patches of skin have sharper borders under black light and fluoresces bright blue-white. Sometimes a biopsy is also done to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment for Vitiligo can be very difficult. This patient underwent a treatment called Excimer Laser which uses narrowband UVB light to treat the Vitiligo. The patient was also given a prescription cream to use in conjunction with the laser treatments. The picture on the left from above is her initial photo and the one on the right is after multiple laser treatments.
