The success of the Pigmentation for Vitiligo procedure is dependent on the correct skin tone colours being selected to achieve a look that ‘merges’ into the surrounding skin. In order to achieve optimal results, Kyla will create custom blends of pigment and may carry out several test patches on the vitiligo site. After 6 weeks the colour will stabilize and you and Kyla will be able to decide on which of the patch test colours to proceed with.
Once the colours have been decided upon, Kyla will implant the pigments into the vitiligo sites using her Titian Wash™ technique. This will mimic the subtle colour variations found in your natural skin.
Each pigmentation session normally takes one hour. You may require only one treatment session, or multiple sessions if you have a larger area to cover or if your skin proves to be more resistant to the pigments. Every person’s skin type, skin thickness, color level, and presence of thick or thin layers of scar tissue will cause pigments to absorb differently. All of these factors are assessed during the consultation and test patch of treatment. Kyla will take time to discuss your particular situation with you.
