Phototherapy for vitiligo

The Vitiligo Solutions Clinic uses the very latest in vitiligo phototherapy treatment known as narrowband phototherapy, or narrowband UVB. On average each treatment takes between 20-60 seconds to perform. Narrowband phototherapy stimulates the melanocytes or pigment producing cells to re-pigment white patches of vitiligo. This takes time, on average 30-60 sessions are needed to see results. All phototherapy sessions are covered by Medicare with no out of pocket expenses to patients.
