Vitiligo is a common skin disease characterized by loss of skin pigment which leads to its whitening. Its treatment depends on topical creams, exposure to ultraviolet rays (PUVA or NB- UVB), and using Excimer laser to stimulate skin re-pigmentation and minigrafting.
Minigrafting is used for resistant yet stable cases (with lesions that are fixed in size and number for at least 6 months). All treatments achieve a success rate of 75%.
Minigrafting in most cases will be combined with exposure of ultraviolet rays for 4 months in order to achieve the best results.
Other lines of surgical treatment for Vitiligo are available.
