Forschner, Buchholtz and Stockfleth conducted an analysis to compare the many therapeutic options for treating vitiligo. “For generalized vitiligo, phototherapy with UVB radiation is most effective with the fewest side effects.” However, “no single therapy for vitiligo can be regarded as the most effective as the success of each treatment modality depends on the type and location of vitiligo.”
