While there is no true and absolute cure for vitiligo at this time, there are treatment options that prove to be successful in removing lesions. Main therapeutic routes available include phototherapy and topical calcipotriol. A study by Ada, Sahin, Boztepe, et al., determined that “narrow-band UVB phototherapy is effective by itself in vitiligo, and shows that adding topical calcipotriol does not improve treatment outcome.”
