Comparison studies of the newest phototherapy treatment methods have been conducted to establish the best treatment method. To this date, there is no evidence to prove that one phototherapy option is greater than the other, therefore excimer lamps, excimer laser, and narrowband ultraviolet B options were all deemed effective and safe when aiming at the re-pigmentation of vitiligo lesions.
