Scenesse® Phase 1 Trial Results Published (afamelanotide) The multi-center, randomized trial ran for a six-month period and involved 55 vitiligo patients, all of whom received NB-UV-B phototherapy and half who also received Scenesse® (afamelanotide) in addition to the phototherapy. Everyone had statistically significant improvement, but results for those who received the combination therapy were superior. Scenesse® was administered via a subcutaneous dissolving implant about the size of a grain of rice. Repigmentation was determined by two scoring systems: the Vitiligo Area Scoring Index (VASI) and the Vitiligo European Task Force (VETF) score. Improvement for both groups of patients was seen early in the trial according to both scoring systems, but statistically significant improvement for the patients on the combination therapy came earlier and was more marked. By the end of the trial, those on Scenesse® plus phototherapy showed much greater improvement. The combination therapy resulted in much greater repigmentation on the face and upper extremities, and results were seen, on average, 20 days earlier than in those on NB-UVB phototherapy alone. Both groups of patients generated both follicular (around the hair follicle) and peripheral (marginal) pigmentation patterns. The study did not test patients on Scenesse® alone, although the authors note that […]

The study did not test patients on Scenesse® alone, although the authors note that this should be studied in the future. The study also did not test the therapy in lighter-skinned patients, but in the darker-skinned patients who participated, results were most marked in those with the darkest skin.

Scenesse® acts similarly to a natural protein that is important in stimulating melanocyte production and proliferation. Clinuvel Pharmaceutical, the maker of Scenesse®, sponsored the study.

Since vitiligo is considered an autoimmune disease, and because scientists have already located the gene responsible for vitiligo, perhaps this new treatment can be used to turn off vitiligo! A link to the article can be found at the end of this post, and while it is informative, I am going to do some more research this week on the myriad of medical sites to get in-depth information for us.

These support organizations help the people learn more about vitiligo and keep them informed of the best treatments available. They also help in sourcing support from other people who are also affected by vitiligo. Some of the well-known vitiligo support groups from around the world include the following:

What does Vitiligo look like?

Vitiligo look like a white patch on the skin and the white patches varies from light tan to the complete absence of the pigment. People are prone to this Vitiligo more commonly in the area which is below the elbow and this is not completely understood by anyone on why it is occurring. Vitiligo is of two types which is segmental Vitiligo and non segmental Vitiligo. Many people develop segmental Vitiligo in which the white patches develop only in one side of the body that is in one area alone.

What is melanin?

Melanin is a pigment of skin as well as hairs which will be present in human begins as well as animals. They will be dark brown in color. These melanin pigments are synthesized by the melanocytes which are the special cells and also help in storing the melanin pigments. Melanin pigments are the pigments which gives color to the skin as well the hair for human beings as well as for animals. These melanin pigments are derived from the amino acids tyrosine. When these melanin pigments fail to work properly then it will result in the condition of Vitiligo.

How does Vitiligo develop?

The pigment loss differs a lot from one person to another person and in many conditions Vitiligo develops in one small area but later if left untreated will start to spread to other areas of the body and also the white patches which are already present will start to grow in a larger size. There are conditions of the Vitiligo to also stay in the same area for about many years and this is because happening whenever a de pigmentation happens in that particular area. There are also chances for Vitiligo to re pigment by themselves without treatment also but only in some rare cases.

Are there cosmetics available for covering Vitiligo spots?

Yes there are many cosmetics products available to cover the spots which are caused because of Vitiligo. The commonly used cosmetic is the water proof make up. This water proof make will be applied only to the spots and after the application the affected areas will be seem to be equal to the normal skin tone. This water proof make up is available for every type of skin tone from fair to dark black. There are also products available which are of both water proof and also friction proof. People also use sun glass tanner products which must be applied to the white patches only in order to get a great relief.

What is Vitiligo Cover Lotion? Vitiligo Cover Lotion is a topical camouflaging product for masking vitiligo patches and blending these patches with normal skin tone. The product’s website is vitiligocover.com. It is a paraben-free formulation that does not contain dyes or bronzers. Therefore, it can be safely applied on any part of the body and it does not wash off in water. Vitiligo Cover Lotion provides an effective camouflage cover with only once weekly application. The active ingredient in Vitiligo Cover Lotion is dihydroxyacetone or DHA. It is formulated in a base made of a mixture of aloe vera, shea butter, rosehips oil and walnut extract. These other ingredients are included to help improve the tone and appearance of the skin while DHA camouflages the depigmented areas of the skin. Vitiligo Cover Lotion contains 8% DHA which is more than the DHA found in most of the competing vitiligo products. This active ingredient is obtained from natural sources (sugar cane plant). There is no need for color matching with Vitiligo Cover Lotion. Unlike vitiligo camouflage solutions such as makeups, the color that Vitiligo Cover Lotion gives the skin is derived from interacting with skin proteins to produce normal, depigmented skin. […]

What is Vitiligo Cover Lotion?

It is a paraben-free formulation that does not contain dyes or bronzers. Therefore, it can be safely applied on any part of the body and it does not wash off in water. Vitiligo Cover Lotion provides an effective camouflage cover with only once weekly application.

The active ingredient in Vitiligo Cover Lotion is dihydroxyacetone or DHA.

It is formulated in a base made of a mixture of aloe vera, shea butter, rosehips oil and walnut extract. These other ingredients are included to help improve the tone and appearance of the skin while DHA camouflages the depigmented areas of the skin.

Vitiligo Cover Lotion contains 8% DHA which is more than the DHA found in most of the competing vitiligo products. This active ingredient is obtained from natural sources (sugar cane plant).

There is no need for color matching with Vitiligo Cover Lotion. Unlike vitiligo camouflage solutions such as makeups, the color that Vitiligo Cover Lotion gives the skin is derived from interacting with skin proteins to produce normal, depigmented skin.

Vitiligo Cover Lotion is suitable for vitiligo patients of all ages. It comes in bottles and each bottle will serve for 2 – 3 months.

What is DHA?

Dihydroxyacetone is also called glycerone. It is a simple carbohydrate obtained from natural sources such as sugar cane and sugar beets as well as from the fermentation of glycerin.

DHA is prepared as a crystalline powder that absorbs moisture when exposed. It can occur singly as a monomer or as a dimer (2 DHA molecules stringed together). The monomer is very soluble in water and alcohol but the dimer dissolves a lot faster in alcohol.

Dihydroxyacetone is involved in the breakdown of glucose and fructose.

The unique pigmentation property of DHA was discovered in the 1950s when children receiving large oral doses of the drug spilled some on their skins. After a few hours, the skin would turn brown.

More studies show that although DHA turns the skin brown, it does not penetrate deep into the skin. Instead, it only reaches the outermost layer of the epidermis. Therefore, it is non-toxic and the skin change is a simple, harmless reaction.
How DHA and Vitiligo Cover Lotion Work

DHA reacts with a range of amino acids. Since amino acids make up keratin, the chief protein making up the skin, DHA interacts with amino acids in the outer layer of skin.

When DHA reacts with amino acids, it forms a class of compounds called melanoidins.

Melanoidins are also pigments like melanin. They produce different color tones from yellow to brown. However, the amino acids found in the keratin of the skin preferentially produce brown colored melanoidins.

Melanoidins are brown, high molecular weight polymers formed the combination of sugars (DHA) and amino acids.

This reaction does not required enzymes to proceed but heat and little moisture. It is similar to the Maillard browning reaction that occurs during the preparation of foods such as steak, toasted bread and roasted coffee.

DHA was approved in the 1970s by the FDA for use in cosmetic products.

Today, it is found in virtually all sunless tanning products (in concentrations ranging from 1% to 15%). The higher the concentration of DHA, the darker the result obtained from the tanning product.

It can be used alone or combined with similar sugars such as erythrulose.

Since DHA reacts with amino acids of keratin, the tan it gives the skin does not wash away with water or soap. However, prolonged contact with water or sweat may lighten the dark tan.

The tan effect of DHA usually stays on for 3 – 10 days and it is only removed when dead skin cells are exfoliated from the topmost layer of the skin.

DHA is safe to use as long as it is applied topically. Inhalation and contact with mucosal surface when used in spray tanning products may pose some health risks.

However, there are indications that DHA may reduce the production of vitamin D in the skin. This is probably due to the protection from ultraviolet irradiation offered by the heavy coloration of the skin.

Despite the tan provided by DHA, sunscreens are recommended alongside since the UV protection of DHA products do not last as long as the tan they impact.

How to Apply Vitiligo Cover Lotion

Before applying Vitiligo Cover Lotion, you should shower first and exfoliate your skin with a loofah or scrub.

This is required in order to remove dead skin cells that may be shed in a few days or the remnant of an older layer of Vitiligo Cover Lotion.

If the lotion is applied on the skin close to the shedding period of skin growth cycle, its effect may wear off sooner than expected. Therefore, exfoliate your skin and expose a new layer of skin cells.

Dry off your skin and apply the lotion.

Applying the lotion on your whole body or, at least, whole segments of your body is advisable. So, if your vitiligo spots are concentrated on your arms, you should apply on the entire length of the arm.

However, if you prefer spot application, take care to use a cotton swab to even out the edge of each vitiligo patch by removing any excess lotion from the edges.

To apply Vitiligo Cover Lotion, you may use an applicator sponge especially to rub the lotion on your face, arms and legs. Rub in a circular motion and make sure to cover skin folds such as the elbows.

When rubbing on your face, extend the application of the lotion to your neck and shoulders so as to provide an even tone in such contiguous visible area.

After application, rinse off your palm and finger nails with warm water, soap and a scrub.

The lotion usually sets within 15 minutes. Therefore, allow that time before getting dressed especially at nighttime before you go to bed.

It takes 6 – 8 hours for the camouflage to fully blend your vitiligo patches with your natural skin color and tone. So, try not to work out excessive sweat or get water on the areas covered within that time frame.

While applying Vitiligo Cover Lotion, refrain from applying any more than a light coat. Heavy application does not necessary produce a darker, uniform color. However, people with dark skin may need more than a light coat application.

Apply a regular moisturizer to keep your skin supple and add sheen to the new color tone. Also apply a sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. Vitiligo Cover Lotion does not contain sunscreen.

During the summer months, your skin acquires a natural tan. This gives your skin a deeper coloration which may not be matched by a single application of Vitiligo Cover Lotion. Therefore, a second and even third application of the lotion may be required.

Wait for 8 hours after applying the first layer before determining if you need a second layer. This will give the lotion time to set and work.

Subsequently, and after determining the number of layers needed to achieve an even color tone, allow only 15 minutes between the application of each layer.
Is Vitiligo Cover Lotion Effective?

Vitiligo Cover Lotion is an effective camouflaging product for covering up vitiligo patches.

It contains 8% DHA which is safe and enough to achieve satisfactory results.

One study in which a similar camouflaging cream containing 6% DHA was used for people with different skin types (including the darker skin types III, IV and V) showed that that concentration was enough to produce moderate to marked results in 89% of the study’s participants.

Different testimonies from actual users of Vitiligo Cover Lotion show that this products achieves an even higher success rate.

Its results can be dramatic as well as lasting and as long as the application instructions are followed, Vitiligo Cover Lotion seems to almost always work.

Even though DHA may cause contact dermatitis, such side effects are not reported with the use of Vitiligo Cover Lotion. This is mainly because the DHA included in the lotion is sourced from sugar canes and not synthesized in the lab.

In addition, the other ingredients in Vitiligo Cover Lotion such as aloe vera and shea butter are known to help maintain skin health. Therefore, it is unlikely that the lotion can irritate the skin.
