    I don't know this for a fact, but I suspect that celebrities either undergo laser or chemical peels, or use a drug called Benaquin cream. This is a drug that kills the pigment producing cells and is intended as a last ditch effort to even out the splotchiness that occurs in that terribly disfiguring disease called vitiligo.
