Vitiligo, also known as Leucoderma, causes depigmentation of the skin, especially on the face, limbs or the genital area. It spreads very quickly and can cause depigmentation of the entire skin.
Melanocytes are the cells responsible for production of melanin, the pigment which given gives color to the skin. When affected by this disease, they get destroyed.
Cure for vitiligo
A group of doctors from Cuba have discovered a cure for this disease and developed a complete treatment, for which you need to consult the “International Clinical Service” and stay in Cuba for at least 3 days.
Consultation terms are from Monday to Friday, 8:30AM to 4:3 PM, and the consultation costs 120.000 CUC. For a skin biopsy you`ll have to pay 150.000 CUC, and every treatment session costs 40.000 CUC.
During the treatment, you don`t have to stay in the hospital, since it`s ambulatory. Also, you don`t need to make reservation, because all of the patients are treated in order of arrival.
The address of the “Histotherapy Centre” is Calle 18, No. 4302 corner to 43. Miramar, Playa, Havana, Cuba. After a couple of treatments, you can go home and continue the treatments from there. The prescribed amount of medications depends on how affected is your skin by the disease. The vitiligo medicine, called Melagenina Plus, costs 36.000 CUC per bottle, but before you can buy it you need to undergo a medical examination and have a prescription from the Centre. The price includes consultation and 3 sessions.
The vitiligo medication is actually an alcoholic extract from human placenta, which can increase the production of new melanocytes and speed up the process of melanin production.
