Under local anaesthesia, a superficial sample of healthy skin will be taken using an appropriate tool (i.e., dermatome). The sampling area will be protected with a greasy dressing and it will take a few days to heal.
Using the Viticell® kit, the skin sample will be used by your doctor to extract from it the cells responsible for the re-pigmentation of the skin: keratinocytes and melanocytes.
The area to be treated will be first dermabraded, usually using a laser, in order to facilitate the implantation of cells from the skin sample. This intervention is performed under local anaesthesia.
The cell suspension will be then spread over the dermabraded area. The area will be covered with a dressing which will be changed by your doctor at your next visit.
