There are various treatment options depending upon various factors like age, severity, duration and extent of the disease.
Topical Steroids: Steroid creams form an important part of the treatment regimen. They can lead to re-pigmentation and also help in achieving disease control.
Other creams: Tacrolimus, Pimecrolimus, Calcipotriol, can also be used without the long term side effects of steroids.
Phototherapy: UVA and UVB are the two types of Ultraviolet Therapies available for treatment of Vitiligo. These are useful in cases of extensive disease. Topical creams can be continued along with phototherapy. The therapy is done in clinic 2-3 times a week.
At Garekars MD, NBUVB is used for treatment of Vitiligo.
Surgery: Surgery is used in cases where no new areas of pigment loss have been observed for a long period of time. Skin grafting, punch grafting, melanocyte transfer etc are a few surgical modalities available today.
