A 32-year-old woman with vitiligo was treated with 755 nm Gentlase laser hair removal, in an area of normal skin and an area of vitiliginous skin. The area of normal skin responded with hair reduction of 89% after four laser treatments, but the hair on the vitiliginous area did not respond. No Koebner phenomenon was observed after treatment.
