Localised vitiligo

If your vitiligo appears in localised areas, such as on the hands, face, genital area, etc. a combined treatment of Meladul Gel and Phototherapy is recommended.

Meladul, based on superoxide dismutase, helps to reduce the oxidative stress in these cells, improving appearance and favouring repigmentation.

The treatment in this cases is recommended as follows:

  • First, apply Meladul Gel everyday, twice a day, on the areas affected by vitiligo.
  • One hour after applying the gel, and only three times a week, use the narrow band UVB lamp, following the instructions.

The application times are measured in seconds and the initial exposure time is always 29 seconds, because the skin is de-pigmented.

The treatment should last between 6 and 24 months to obtain results.
