General Q & A


“The co-ordination of the international research on the preclinical and clinical studies were organised and carried out by the Centre for Multidisciplinary Regenerative Research of the University of Rome G. Marconi”

What is meant by Integrative Dermatology?

Integrative Dermatology is based on proven scientific research using a combination of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and mainstream dermatologic treatments. It is sometimes referred to as a holistic dermatology.

The treatment is a personalized solution considering all facets of the patient: –

  • With an emphasis on wellness and illness prevention
  • Focusing on physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, social and lifestyle issues
  • Incorporating evidence-based, safe and ethical complementary therapies

It looks to identify the triggers of a patient’s skin condition, treating these triggers and not just being restricted to treating the physical symptoms.

Holistic Dermatology combines scientific and herbal research with an expanded knowledge base that includes both CAM and mainstream practice.

Why is the Vitiligo.Clinic® treatment different?

The Vitiligo.Clinic effective herbal bioactive active treatments have been formulated by Prof. Tirant and are a combination of mainstream ingredients, herbal extracts, essential oils and active compound isolates. The treatments include both topicals and orals and can be used alone or in combination with various mainstream treatments.

Prof. Tirant has drawn on over 30 years of clinical treatment and research to develop synergistic formulations for both the topicals and the orals. These products contain ingredients that have been scientifically researched and shown to have proven therapeutic properties.

How quickly can I expect to see results?

It is very difficult to say how quickly a patient will respond to treatment because each patient is different.

Patients have different triggers and skin types and an individual’s commitment to adhere to their prescribed treatment plan will, of course, impact on response and length of treatment time.

Some patients have reported experiencing some repigmentation occurring within 3-4 weeks, whilst others have had to wait for 16-20 weeks. Generally, most patients will see some response within 3 months; others may have to wait for 6 months.

Treatment may have to be continued for 1-2 years to obtain optimum results.

It is very important though that you must remain patient ……. Vitiligo is a complex condition and is known to respond slowly ……. There is no quick fix.

Do you guarantee results?

Just as there is no cure for Vitiligo, there can be no guarantee for any one treatment.

The Vitiligo.Clinic will endeavour to provide you with the best possible treatments and if you also elect to have an Online Email Consultation, we will provide you with support during your treatment.

Why do I have to purchase the UVB lamp from another site?

The products which are available for purchase are manufactured by Michael Tirant Dermaceuticals (MTD); a company owned by Prof. Michael Tirant and as such can be covered under warranty and insurance.

Any product such as the UVB Lamp is not manufactured by Michael Tirant Dermaceuticals and as such the purchase of these items must be done by you, the patient, so that you will then be covered by the warranties provided by the supplying manufacturer.  (We can suggest a supplier of UVB lamp if you are interested – contact us at

If you do not wish to purchase this item you may instead elect to arrange for UV treatment with your healthcare Practitioner or Dermatologist.

Can I just order the products without an Online Email Consultation?
