Treatment results will vary by person and type of vitiligo. The rule of thumb is that you will need to allow at least 3 to 6 months before you begin to see results from any treatment, and you may expect satisfactory results within 12-18 months.
Newly appeared spots can be efficiently treated soon after onset, typically within the first 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately, new patients often get trapped between physicians, dermatologists, insurance companies and their daily activities, and typically lose this best window of opportunity. Early treatment will produce better and longer lasting results, which is why medical care should be sought as soon as possible to stop the patches from spreading.
