Official Title: Comparison of the Efficacy of Micro-holes vs. Laser-assisted Dermabrasion, for Repigmenting in Vitiligo Skin
In Brief: The principal objective is to compare the efficacy of laser-assisted dermabrasion + autologous epidermal cells suspension grafting versus dermabrasion using micro-needling technique + autologous epidermal cells suspension grafting and dermabrasion using micro-needling technique + placebo suspension grafting in stable vitiligo. A total of 10 patients with stable non-segmental vitiligo will be included in the ITT population. In each patient, three separate test areas will be selected in the same part of the body. One area will be pre-treated with dermaroller and receive the hyaluronic acid suspension alone and the two others will receive the epidermal cell suspension in hyaluronic acid after pre-treatment either with dermaroller or laser-assisted dermabrasion, each patient being his own control. Targeted phototherapy with excimer lamp (308 nMm) will be applied on all test areas 1 week after cell grafting.
