Would you feel more comfortable in your skin if certain areas were lightened and brightened? People of all skin tones can develop dark spots resulting from friction. Patches of darkened skin occur commonly in the underarm, inner thigh, vaginal, and anal areas. Luckily I am here to help!
This series of body-safe chemical peels does not "bleach" the intimate area, but rather it stimulates rapid cell turnover to reduce hyperpigmentation. This includes dark spots resulting from shaving, ingrown hairs, or healed blemishes. You can book your first treatment as soon as 5-7 days after hair removal.
To see results, expect to commit to 4-6 monthly treatments and one or more home care products depending on your level and area of hyperpigmentation.
Start with a consultation with a professional esthetician and decide if intimate lightening is right for you.
We ask that you try to plan your lightening appointments around your cycle and provide at least 24 hours notice for any appointment changes. If you have your period and you undergo this type of treatment, the skin may become inflamed due to hormones. Please reschedule if your period will interfere.
After we apply the lightening treatment, we will apply a product that you will leave on the skin. You will remove it yourself at home after 4 hours. For the next 24 hours, avoid intimacy, heat, excessive friction, and tight clothes. Do your best to keep the area clean and dry. You may notice skin flaking in the days after treatment. Due to the nature of the products used, please wait at least a week after your service to perform hair removal. You can begin home care products 3 days after your service.
In a sense, yes. However, we do not use bleach or skin whitening agents such as hydroquinone. For this service, we use a series of advanced chemical peels to lighten hyperpigmentation. Of course, intimate lightening can be done on other areas of concern as well.
We cannot perform intimate lightening on damaged or sunburnt skin. The area must be free of any wounds, sores, or infections. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus in that area, please consult your doctor on using antiviral medication prior and after treatment. People using certain medications including Accutane, Retin-A, Differin, or Renova cannot do intimate lightening. Pregnant women should obtain approval from their doctor before treatment.
