Treatment Therapies for Leucoderma (Vitiligo):

Leucoderma Menu

In a few cases of leucoderma or vitiligo there is no need of any kind of treatment. You can change the appearance of skin using moisturizers and sunscreen. The time period for treatment of leucoderma varies from six to eighteen months depending on the severity of the disorder. Leucoderma treatment can be divided into two categories which are medicinal therapies and surgical therapies.

Medical Therapies

Topical Corticosteroid Therapy: Leucoderma is treatable using medicines, if the treatment is started in the beginning. The main drug for treatment of leucoderma is cortisone. For children below 10 years age cortisone is prescribed in the form of ointment and creams while cortisone in other stronger forms is given to the adults.

Topical psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA): This therapy is generally suggested by dermatologists if 20 percent of body is covered from white patches. This therapy is performed in the presence of artificial ultraviolet lights. The exposure to UV rays will turn white patches into pink which can be changed into natural skin color by increasing the intensity of UV rays.

Depigmentation: This therapy is generally recommended if more than 50 percent of your body is covered with white patches. In this the normal skin color is faded to match the already present white patches. The common drug which is used for this therapy is monobenzene. It is generally applied two times a day on the pigmented areas until they become white.

Surgical Therapies:

Autologus Skin Grafts: In this method cosmetologist cut down small pieces of skin from one area and attaches it with another part. The risk associated with this therapy is cobblestone and spotty pigmentation appearance.

Blister Grafting: In this therapy a blister of pigmented skin removed using suction surgery and is transplanted on the non pigmented area of equal size. But there are some risks of this surgical treatment including scarring and cobblestone appearance of skin.

Tattooing or Micro pigmentation: In this therapy pigment is inserted in the non pigmented areas of body by a surgical method. It is generally preferred for lip areas however the effect of this surgery gets faded with passage of time.
