Vitiligo in African-American skin—Can it be treated?

Vitiligo is patchy depigmentation, loss of normal color, of the skin. This is particularly troubling in African-American skin as the contrast of the two skin tones can be very dramatic. In our office, we treat vitiligo especially on the face and hands of African-Americans with an in-office procedure whereby we apply a tanning solution followed by ultraviolet light. Multiple treatments are necessary and the results are usually very rewarding.
