Punch Grafting

This is a time-tested technique with excellent results for vitiligo treatment. This technique can be used to treat any part of the body including most difficult sites likes bony prominences, breast and genitalia. Multiple thin small skin grafts are taken from normally pigmented skin and then grafted over the white vitiligo area. Normal skin colour may develop in 3-6 months.

Suction Blister Epidermal Grafting

This technique gives excellent results as the graft is very thin and is best for lips and eyelids. A very thin skin graft containing melanocytes is obtained by applying suction over the donor area. This melanocyte full skin is grafted over the white skin patch which will regain pigment in next 3 to 6 months.

Autologous Melanocyte Transplantation

This technique is useful for treating fairly larger areas of the body. Melanocytes are harvested in a cellular suspension form and transplanted over white vitiligo area of skin. Excellent results can be obtained by post-operative treatment including phototherapy.
