One treatment for vitiligo on lips is micropigmentation. I came across it in my quest for helping lip vitiligo patients heal. This process is used to colour the white patches on the lips artificially.

What is micropigmentation?
It is the implanting of colour pigments into the patient's white skin on the lips. Sterile needles are used with a motorized instrument to inject colour pigments. The patient is given topical anaesthetic, sometimes along with a sedative to calm the patient.The needles move in and out of the skin on the lips.
After the procedure, there may be swelling, soreness or redness in the lip area. The area should be left undisturbed without washing or scrubbing the skin on the lips for atleast two days. Otherwise, the pigments will wash off.
There are a few cons regarding this procedure. Micropigmentation is very risky. Sometimes, your skin may be allergic to the colour granules. It is a medical procedure and costly. It is not permanent. The colour eventually fades. It is a superficial and temporary treatment. It treats the symptom and not the cause. It helps to cover up the white spots on one are of the lips, but they may reappear on some other area of the lips. Also, it is very difficult to get the exact colour match for the lip skin.
It is better to treat the cause and cure yourself of the problem which is basically hormonal and nutritional imbalances. This can be done through the intake of natural, wholesome food; and thus, heal your body inside out.
