Anal Bleaching is a process of lightening the darker skin around the anal area to create an even skin tone.
The area around the anus is generally darker than your actual skin color. It can also be caused by factors such as genetics, everyday friction, sweat, hormonal changes and pregnancy, infections, and certain medical conditions.
There are several treatments commonly available for hyperpigmentation around the anal area. Bleaching is one of the mainstream solutions. It is an effective and affordable method.
Anal bleaching is a treatment that lightens the natural pigmentation of the skin around your anus. And no, there is no actual bleach involved in the process. One method for bleaching involves chemical peels or creams. The treatment breaks down melanin which is a natural pigment in the skin as well as reduces the number of melanin-producing cells. Laser treatment is another alternative technique. Lasers can destroy excess melanin and slow pigment creation.
Some topical lightening agents can irritate the skin, causing mild stinging or burning sensation whereas laser bleaching is far less uncomfortable but it may also sting.
As the intimate areas are extremely delicate, it makes them susceptible to a variety of irritant and allergic reactions to a wide range of chemicals. The use of harsh and toxic ingredients in bleach cream can cause discomfort, temporary burning, permanent scarring, hyperpigmentation of the anus, and anal incontinence due to the burning of the anal sphincter fibers.
However, done by a skilled provider who knows how to look for and treat any reactions, anal bleaching is safe.
Usually, you may notice the change in the shade of the pigmentation after one session, but three or four sessions are recommended for optimal results, lasting up to six months. The results do not last longer than six months. Topical treatments last far less in terms of duration than laser bleaching.
Anal Bleaching is a safe and comfortable treatment which usually 20-30 minutes.
You can immediately continue the normal routine. However, before and after your appointment, some steps should be followed for effective results and quick recovery.
After the treatment is done, you will be given aftercare instructions along with lotion, cream, or gel to apply to the bleached area. This can help ease any inflammation. It may also help you avoid infection.
