1. Autologous skin grafts
It includes removal of skin from one area of your body and transplanting it to another body region.
2. Skin grafts using blisters
The doctor produces blisters on your pigmented skin by applying heat, suction, or cold. The top layers of the blisters are then removed out and transplanted to a depigmented skin area.
3. Micro-pigmentation (tattooing)
This method includes implanting pigment into the skin with a particular surgical tool. It works best for the lip area, especially in people with dark skin. But it is difficult for the doctor to perfectly match the colour of the skin of the surrounding area.
4. Autologous melanocyte transplant
In this procedure, the doctor uses a sample of your normal skin and places it in a laboratory dish comprising a particular cell-culture solution to develop melanocytes. When the melanocytes in the culture media multiply, the doctor transplants them to your depigmented skin patches.
