UVB light: Laser therapy is an effective treatment for vitiligo, although impractical for the treatment of widespread or large lesions, since it is focused on small, targeted areas. Combination with topical therapies can be helpful. The laser emits ultraviolet light which somehow interferes with the autoimmune process that may be destroying the melanocytes (which give us our skin pigmentation).
