Intimate Lightening

Intimate lightening, also known as Laser based genital bleaching or anal bleaching, is a cosmetic treatment aimed at lightening the skin in the genital, anal and surrounding areas for a more uniform and youthful appearance. The procedure uses a CO2 based laser to regenerate the skin.

What Is Intimate Lightening?

This non-invasive procedure utilizes safe lightening agents to reduce hyperpigmentation and discoloration in intimate areas. Laser treatments are sometimes combined with topical creams to address both levels of skin pigmentation, the superficial level as well as deeper levels, where melanocytes produce pigment. Topical creams work to regulate pigment production, while our laser works to regenerate deeper levels of the skin to help melanocytes turn over for even skin coloring.

HavenMD uses a long pulse, fractional ablative CO2 laser to deliver energy past the epidermis into the deeper layers of tissue for maximal regeneration of the skin.

Intimate lightening can address hyperpigmentation and discoloration in various intimate areas, including the vaginal area, anal area, inner thighs, nipples, and bikini line. Intimate lightening is a very popular treatment in men looking to lighten their anal areas, inner thighs, and penis.

This treatment is suitable for individuals seeking to achieve a more even skin tone and enhance their overall intimate aesthetics.

Am I a Good Candidate for Intimate Lightening?

Ideal candidates for intimate lightening are individuals bothered by hyperpigmentation or discoloration in intimate areas and seeking to improve their appearance and self-confidence. They have reasonable expectations for lightening in comparison to their skin tone and follow pre and post procedural care guidelines.

Candidates may have concerns related to aging, hormonal changes, genetics, or previous skin conditions affecting intimate skin tone. This is a very popular treatment for patients looking to rejuvenate their most intimate areas utilizing science and evidence backed recommendations.

Candidates who have undergone laser procedures in their intimate area previously and have experienced darkening after a laser treatment are not good candidates for another laser based treatment to this area.

Expectations on the day of Intimate Lightening procedure

From walking into our spa to leaving, your visit will be approximately 1 hour-90 minutes. Patients undergo numbing for 30 minutes-1 hour. The area is then cleansed and the laser procedure begins.

Some things you can do to prepare for your intimate lightening treatment are to avoid medications that stop platelets from working, such as Aspirin, Aleve, and Ibuprofen/Motrin for 2 days prior, and to avoid drinking more than one alcoholic beverage the night before your laser treatment.

On the day of your procedure, your provider will review any allergies, active issues that will change your treatment pattern, and any potential contraindications to your treatment. Your provider will also give you an estimated pricing for your treatment plan.

Patients may be advised to avoid certain skincare products or medications that can increase the risk of skin irritation before the procedure. This includes retinols, hydroquinones, chemical peel agents, and mild acids such as BHA/AHA. Patients applying retinols to this area are asked not to apply their cream at least 1 week before treatment. Patients applying hydroquinone based creams are asked not to apply their cream 3 days before treatment. Patients are also asked not to undergo chemical peels 2 weeks prior to treatment.

Recovery from Intimate Lightening

After your procedure, your provider will give you everything you need for post procedural care. This includes an occlusive ointment for application to your treated area twice daily. Patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treated area immediately after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few hours.

This is typically described as a sunburn. After the procedure, patients are asked not to engage in sexual activity using the treated area, not to lie in pools, baths or jacuzzis, and not to allow sweat to pool in treated areas for 3-5 days. This is done to minimize the chance of infection. Results become noticeable within a few weeks and can last up to 6-12 months, with maintenance treatments recommended for optimal results. These treatments are typically done in sets of 3 when patients respond well to treatment.

Think: nonsurgical face lift for a fraction of the cost!
I was a bit nervous as this was my first consultation, but Dr. Mathias immediately put me at ease. She suggested the pixelated CO2 laser and she did warn me of some downtime after the procedure, but it was 100% worth it. Think: nonsurgical face lift for a fraction of the cost!
