Welcome to Vitiligo Treatment Center of South Florida. Our practice has been helping patients throughout Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade counties find a safe and effective solution to their problems with skin pigmentation.
The Vitiligo Treatment Center of South Florida was founded by Robert A. Snyder, MD in 2010 to help meet the undeserved needs of patients with vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a disorder of the skin and mucous membranes that results in localized areas of pigment loss. The disorder is often progressive, leading to the development of areas of skin that have no pigment and appear white in color. Vitiligo affects 1% of the population. It most commonly begins in the second and third decades of life, but can start at any age. Although the cause of vitiligo is unknown, current theories hold that the disease develops because of the immune system attack on pigment cells called melanocytes. Genetic and neurologic factors may also play a role in this disorder.
