Unfortunately, there is no cure for vitiligo disorders. Vitiligo treatment is only used to slow down the depigmentation symptoms or stop it from further spreading. Vitiligo treatment cannot completely return pigment to skin areas that have already lost its melanin.
Over the years, various vitiligo treatments have been developed as a way of trying to find a cure for this skin disorder. Even though these vitiligo treatments cannot return pigment it is still a good goal to stop vitiligo from spreading throughout the body. Vitiligo treatments usually take from between six to 18 months.
