Vitiligo treatments

Restoring the physiological conditions for pigmentation:

It has been shown that treatment with pseudocatalase limits oxidative stress and hence damage to the melanocytes which are responsible for skin pigmentation.

  • Topical or systemic administration of gingko biloba, antioxidants such as vitamin E and superoxide dismutase (SOD), can limit depigmentation and even, according to some studies, promote repigmentation, ideally in combination with phototherapy.
  • Vitamins and minerals (B12, E, selenium, calcium, folic acid) help to compensate for deficiencies in vitiligo patients.
