Vitiligo is characterised by well demarcated, cutaneous, macular depigmentation, with worldwide prevalence estimated to be between 0.2-1.8% [1]. Vitiligo treatments aim to encourage re-pigmentation and include topical corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors and NB-UVB phototherapy. Camouflage can also be prescribed to help mask the appearance of vitiligo, although this is frequently only prescribed for the face.
