According to the dermatologist at the Hospital Regional da Asa Norte (HRAN) Eugenio Kings of Brasilia, the traditional procedure, and the use of ointments and medicines, are set aside parts of the skin area of ​​the healthy body and transplanted to the area affected by the disease. However, the technique is aggressive, can leave scars and does not guarantee good results. With the improvement of the transplantation of melanocytes, the area is hit with a more uniform color and harmony, after four to six weeks. Not to mention that the procedure is much less aggressive than traditional clarified.

The area affected by vitiligo is scraped and the cells are placed under the affected skin.
