Aug 16th 2014 at 5:49 AM

The combination of phototherapy and topical immunomodulators - In the treatment of vitiligo is most effective. Because immunomodulators should not be used in conjunction with radiation, it is recommended to combat the affected areas in day phototherapy only in the evening.

Surgical treatment - Suitable for vitiligo, which is stable, i.e. further propagate; there are various methods, usually mini grafts, followed by phototherapy.Total treatment - General treatment is suitable for patients with impaired more than 20% of body surface.Light Phototherapy - In this case, the use of whole-body radiators (booths that resemble solarium) that emit UVB 311 nm (which can be used in children older than 6 years) or UVA (320-400 nm) together with tablets that take 2 hours to irradiation and to sensitize skin to radiation.

Light is carried out 1-2 times a week for at least one year.Medicaments - The overall treatment is performed only rarely (prednisone tablet). An alternative treatment of vitiligo is extensive bleaching of the skin, which is made substance that is not available in Europe. The effectiveness of local and total phototherapy, preferably in combination with local drugs occurs at a sufficiently long period of treatment in about 70% of patients. New pigmentation is not complete, is uneven. Best respond to phototherapy face, neck, arms, and torso. More detailed information about vitiligo treatment is given at .
