I would be pleased to answer your question .

The cosmetic method of treatment include application of trichloroacetic acid in the area which has no color . Its burns the local area chemically and then brings color into the white patch .
that would be the best practice approach and you can get that done at an Dermatologist clinic .

Thanks and take care
