    No treatment

    For people having a pale complexion, no treatment is recommended in their case. The depigmentation of their skin colour seems pretty vague, as compared to their original skin colour, due to which it’s less noticeable. Dermatologists recommend make-up or skin dyes in their case, as that serves to be get rid of the minute difference between the two skin tones.

    Topical corticosteroid creams tend to serve as a solution for returning picture to small areas within a time span of three months. However they’re also known for thinning of skin, which is a drawback that one has to endure for returning of the pigmentation upon their skin. These creams are used in case the patient has a very slight area affected due to Vitiligo.

    Ultraviolet therapy

    PUVA therapy is another well-known cure for Vitiligo. The therapy consists of a combination of a medication called Psoralen along with UVA ultraviolet light treatment. The medication is given in the form of pills to the patient, thus making the patient’s skin sensitive to light. The patient is then exposed to ultraviolet light twice every month, with the treatment set to continue for duration of nearly a year. In this process 50-70% of the pigmentation is expected to return on the affected area of the patient’s skin. However, the PUVA treatment also has side effects, which includes sunburn, freckling and an increased risk of cancer.
