A Guide to Intimate Area Brightening: Say Goodbye to Skin Discoloration
Looking your best doesn’t have to be difficult to achieve – whether you are looking into getting a surgical procedure to change the appearance of your labia or if you are hoping to get a simpler, easier procedure to do something like lighten the skin around your intimate areas. Both types of procedures are gaining more and more popularity as the self-care positivity movement continues, which is wonderful, as both are great ways to help you get the overall look and confidence you are hoping for. Procedures such as intimate lightening are relatively easy and have lasting results that can help you look and feel better – even in intimate areas!
What is Intimate Lightening?
Intimate lightening is a procedure that involves lightening the skin around the intimate areas. While the procedure is called intimate lightening, don’t be fooled. This versatile procedure can actually be used anywhere on the body, such as the underarms and face, or even in areas such as the back of the knees and anywhere where you might want to lighten up areas of skin that have darkened over time. Since the areas around the intimate areas, on both men and women, tend to have much more rubbing and friction, these areas can darken more easily over time.
Intimate lightening is a procedure that uses natural ingredients, such as citrus and botanicals, to lighten the skin safely and naturally.
What Areas Can Be Lightened with Intimate Lightening?
Intimate lightening can be used on many areas of the body. The ones that are treated most frequently include:
Intimate areas (both on men and women), including the anus
While the procedure can be done on any area of the body, it was specifically developed to be safe to use in intimate areas, such as the vaginal area or the penile area as well as the anus.
What is in the Intimate Lightening Solution?
Unlike the traditional over-the-counter chemical-laden creams and ointments that promise skin-lightening results, professional intimate lightening treatments have all-natural ingredients that are safe for skin, even the most sensitive skin. These include citrus oils and botanicals – plant-derived ingredients – that are not harsh on the skin. If you are someone who breaks out easily or suffers from a skin condition such as eczema that makes other creams and treatments completely off-limits for you, intimate lightening can still happen for you – and safely!
How is the Intimate Lightening Procedure Done?
The intimate lightening procedure is done as an outpatient procedure in your doctor’s office. It involves taking the lightening solution and applying it to the intimate area or other area that is to be lightened. After, the patient may sit and wait for the cream to do its work – usually between thirty minutes to an hour. After that, the solution is removed, and the patient is free to leave. There is no downtime after the procedure.
While you may notice results immediately after the first treatment, it is important to note that you will most likely need several sessions before you reach optimal results. The procedures are usually done on a certain schedule for the area and level of lightening desired.
Is Intimate Lightening Permanent?
Intimate lightening is not a permanent procedure – skin will naturally darken again over time due to a variety of factors. Because of this, you may need to undergo the treatments again in the future or set up routine maintenance treatments to ensure you keep the area the desired shade.
Is Intimate Lightening Painful or Uncomfortable?
Since intimate lightening uses natural ingredients such as fruit extracts, it is definitely worth noting that pain and discomfort will not be felt during the procedure. It is completely safe to be used anywhere on the body without worrying about chemical burns or other side effects from harsh solutions that you can purchase at drug stores.
