Vitiligo is characterized by loss of pigment in patches of the body. Vitiligo provides little physical discomfort, though it is often quite distressing. Vitiligo is considered an autoimmune process in which the body destroys its own pigment.
Narrowband UVB light, or Phototherapy, can help create repigmentation. It is currently considered the “Gold Standard” treatment when vitiligo covers 20% or more of the body. This process is slow, working from the outer edges of each patch inward, so regular vitiligo light therapy twice a week for a year or more. Phototherapy equipment has been well-studied and has been proven to be an effective treatment for vitiligo. Phototherapy vitiligo light treatment is generally well-tolerated in both adults and children.
