Darkening of the vagina and anal parts can be unsightly, embarrassing, and bothersome for some females. Sometimes the darkening of these areas is because of hormones and genetics. The change of color usually starts at puberty and can progress with time. Some ethnicities are also more susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
The darkening color can not only affect the vagina and anus but can also affect the underarms, neck, elbows, and knees. Sometimes rubbing and friction can also make the process of darkening of these areas even worse. This is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. VJazzy Wellness has the best bleaching services for intimate areas.
In the process of anal bleaching, chemicals are applied to the skin around the anus or under am or areola to lighten the naturally deeper pigmentation. It is a cosmetic procedure. The bleaching products that are mostly used include hydroquinone or kojic acid to lighten the color over time.
It is usually a five-step process that uses gentle yet effective chemical peel ingredients and at last, it is followed by a finishing mask. The results can be seen after the first session but it is often recommended to take three to four sessions for the best results that can last up to six months. After the treatment, you can be given some cream that can be applied at home.
There are a few processes of vaginal bleaching that are a bit different from anal bleaching. The procedures involve using topical creams, chemical peels, or laser treatments for lighting the skin. For vaginal bleaching kojic acid is often listed as the most active ingredient in the products used for this service. It is a chemical exfoliant.
It comes from a form of fungus that is taken from the natural rice fermentation process and is typically a safer route than other chemicals. Another chemical often found in vaginal bleaching products is hydroquinone which is considered to be more dangerous. It is made sure that the product does not upset the vaginal pH so no infections can develop.
Another method of vaginal bleaching is laser treatment. Vaginal bleaching is performed with a laser machine. The laser machine is adjusted according to the need of the patient. The required dose of the beam is applied to the inner and outer lip to the vulva areas. The laser beam breaks down the melanocyte cells.
This prevents melanin production in the targeted area. Melanin is the pigment that causes the skin to darken and hyperpigmentation happens. Hence the skin becomes lighter and also smoother after the treatment. It depends on the patients requirements to see how many sessions of treatment are needed for it. Usually, one to three sessions give the best desired results.
After the treatment, the patient is needed to take intense care of hygiene and keep the area extremely clean. It is also recommended to avoid any sexual intercourse for three days after the treatment. The patient has to wear loose-fitting clothing as well for some days so no irritation or complications occur.
