Latest research as of October 2016 shows a good safety profile with HA based fillers and autoimmune conditions including VITILIGO, lupus, and other conditions. This is my preferred method of skin rejuvenation and acne scar revision in patients with vitiligo, as lasers can worsen this condition. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
