How does UV Light Treatment help Vitiligo?

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.
