Sometimes also called intimate whitening or anal lightening, intimate lightening is a procedure in which the darker skin around the anus is lightened with the use of a gentle lightening cream. This procedure can also be performed on other areas of the body where you may have darker skin. If this is a source of embarrassment to you, intimate lightening may be the answer.
Darker Skin in
The skin in these areas can also sometimes darken due to other factors such as pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, or simply aging.
Whatever the cause, if having darker skin in your most intimate areas is a source of concern or embarrassment, you don’t have to live with it.
How is Intimate Lightening
When you arrive for your appointment, the area will be prepped and cleansed. Once it dries, a trained medical aesthetician will apply the hydroquinone-free whitening gel in a gentle, circular motion. Immediately afterward, they will apply a soothing cream to help avoid skin irritation. The entire treatment takes only about 20 minutes.
The number of sessions you'll need will depend on your skin tone, and how much lighter you want to go. Your skin may be 1 to 4 shades lighter after just the first treatment, but results vary from person to person.
If you want to expedite results, you may purchase an at-home gel for $80 to use daily until your next in-clinic intimate lightening session. Your aesthetician will instruct you on how to use the at-home gel.
Intimate lightening is safe for all skin types.

An alternative at-home method for lightening the underarms is a roll-on treatment that usually costs around $80. Used alone, it can gradually lighten the area. However, it’s even more effective when used after an in-clinic treatment.
