VITILIGO TREATMENT PROGRAM 2017-12-15T15:24:14+00:00



Cuba offers one of the world’s most advanced Vitiligo Treatment Program. Vitiligo is a non-contagious condition whereby white spots are produced on different parts of the body due to the lack of melanocytes (cells responsible for producing color). Areas likely to be affected by Vitiligo are the face and neck, scalp, hands, legs and genitals and, though to a lesser degree, the mucous membranes such as the inside of the mouth and nose. When Vitiligo appears on the scalp hair in that area turns white in color.

There are three types of Vitiligo classified by the number of patches and on which area of the body the patches develop:

  1. Generalized Vitiligo:

    This type is most common type.  It is the widespread of spots in a symmetrical way on both sides of the body.

  2. Focal Vitiligo:

    One or more spots in one area occurring mostly on knees, fingers, elbows, lower back or genitals.

  3. Segmental Vitiligo:

    This type is the least common. It is the presence of spots on only one side of the body.

The cause of vitiligo is still unknown however a number of studies have shown that it is more common with people who suffer from hyperthyroidism, pernicious anemia or adrenocortical insufficiency. Some of the factors that may lead to developing vitiligo are autoimmune reaction, genetic, oxidative stress, neural, thyroid disease, diabetes, sunburn, viral infection or exposure to certain chemicals are . Incidence worldwide of this skin disease is less than 1%, with some populations averaging between 2-3% and as high as 16%. It is most often diagnosed in people between 10 years old and 40 years old and is found in all ethnic, racial and gender groups though it is more noticeable on darker skinned people.

CubaHeal Testimonials

5 star review  As a patient with free health care and many different treatment options available my diabetic ulcer kept growing bigger. I have visited Cuba many many times before and heard and researched a drug called heberprot. Not found anywhere except Cuba. So by chance about 32 month later I found a company called Cubaheal located I markham. I contacted them and after I submitted my documentation history and pictures it took about 2 weeks and I was in Havana on my way to the hospital Circa Garcia. From the moment I stepped out of the plain until my return 31 days later I was treated by professional and courteous in every way. The facilitation and treatment plans were interpreted so as to know what the plans are. The people are caring and look after you beyond your expectations to make you feel better. It was a eye opener to see the possibilities of treatments that are available in Cuba.. I would highly encourage people with ailments contact cubaheal to facilitate a treatment plan for you. My foot ulcer wound is now closed from a baseball size on the ankle to closed in a month. You are a patient and are treated as such. You are not a number just being processed. You are there to heal. And I can guarantee if you follow the treatment plan you will leave in better shape. I must thank all the staff members here in Canada and everyone in Havana. While you are in Havana open your eyes and heart. You will learn a lot.
