Dear Patient,
Thanks for your query.
Punch graft is a technique for pigmentation in vitiligo affected area.
Once the grafts are taken up well then mild to moderate topical steroidal creams and misrodermabrasion can be highly beneficial for getting smoothness.
These creams are only to used after proper consultation with physician who has performed the procedure as he knows when the wound is healthy and other smoothening agents can be prescribed.
Steroids of moderate potency are prescription drugs.
