About our Intimate areas lightening and whitening products

The intention of  intimate areas lightening is simple is to lighten the skin!  However, beyond the location, the difference is that vaginal whitening is never done with bleach or hair products! This whitening process must be done with specialized products, so today we bring you all About our Intimate areas lightening and whitening products!

What exactly does it consist of?

Intimate area lightening is a procedure that uses topical creams, chemical peels, or laser treatments to lighten the skin in the bikini area.

Although it is often referred to as vaginal bleaching, it does not affect the internal vaginal canal in any way. The Procedure affects the external genitalia [the vulva] and occasionally the inner thigh, so it should not be confused with vaginal rejuvenation.

How is it done?

From dangerous home remedies and store-bought ointments to special serums and laser treatments, there are various ways to whiten the vagina. But just because vaginal whitening can be done in various ways doesn’t mean you can use any product or go anywhere. For the process to be safe and have the desired results, in the case of creams, you must know very well the type of product you will use. Now, if you are going to undergo laser whitening, you must be in a specialized aesthetic center.

The process of Intimate area lightening will then depend on the type of treatment you will do.

 If you opt for creams that whiten your intimate area, you can do it from the comfort of your home using the ointment and leaving the prudent time according to the instructions.  Now, if you decide on the laser, you must attend a center specializing in this type of procedure, and they will tell you exactly how long it will last and the process you will have in your treatment.

Do you use bleach?

Definitely No! Again, despite the name, Intimate area lightening is never performed – and should never be performed – with pure bleach. So-called “bleaching ingredients” are often found in creams and serums but don’t contain bleach.

Why do people do it?

Generally, people do it hoping to achieve the same complexion as the rest of their bodies. Besides,  that tendency that we don’t like to exhibit those dark spots on our intimate parts guides us to be able to use these types of treatments to lighten our intimate area, and for many of us, it makes us feel good to have an even skin tone.

Is it normal to have a darker intimate area?

The truth is that the skin of the vulva is not supposed to be the same color as the rest of the body. The pigmentation of the labia can change for various reasons, such as age, pregnancy, and hormone levels.

However, some people expect what the vulvar area is supposed to look like and, as a result, go to great lengths to achieve a certain look. The skin all over our body changes over time, including the delicate and sensitive vulvar and vaginal area.

There are several reasons why changes may occur.

 Natural and normal hormonal changes that accompany different stages of life, such as pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause, affect your skin color. 

It can also result from frequent bikini waxing, as waxing can cause the vulvar skin to become calloused, giving it a darker tone. In addition, genetic skin types, aging, and weight gain are other typical causes of these skin color changes.

That said, if the skin on your vulva has undergone a sudden and severe change, see a healthcare professional. The change could point to a major medical problem such as eczema, vulvar cancer, vulvar lesions, or diabetes.

Are there other benefits?

Cleansing the intimate area has no physical health benefits. It is because some people don’t feel confident and comfortable with their vulvar area darkened, and getting one or two shades lighter; can increase self-esteem and acceptance.

Intimate areas lightening treatment for couples

This is a common question for many couples who undergo this treatment. The important thing to know is that it is natural, normal, and common for the vulva or intimate area to have a darker tone than the skin around it. Both must accept each other and know the type of treatment they will undergo.

Remember that a safe treatment depends on a variety of factors, among them:

  • what treatment is used
  • on which part of the intimate area the treatment is applied
  • the frequency of application
  • the duration of the treatment
  • your body chemistry
  • who, if anyone, is supervising or performing the treatment.

That said, topical creams or lasers supervised in a salon are generally considered safer than at-home options.

Does it hurt?

It depends entirely on what you have done, your body’s physiology and reactions to the treatment, exactly what you put on your body and where, and for how long and how often.

What are the possible side effects or risks of Intimate area lighting?

Ultimately, it depends on what you have done. In the short term, certain products may cause vulvar and vaginal irritation, swelling, burning, inflammation, and infections. In the longer term, certain procedures, such as lasers and bleaching creams, can cause loss of sensitivity. Or the opposite: too much sensitivity (i.e., pain).

For their part, certain Intimate areas lightening treatments (not the good ones) may burn the vulva, resulting in permanent scarring, which may cause loss of sensation or pain to the touch. And sometimes, scarring occurs over the clitoral hood, which can cause it to stick to the clitoris, making arousal incredibly intense and painful. That’s why you should always use treatments that are dermatologically tested and have been specially designed for this purpose.

Is there anyone who should not try it under any circumstances?

Anyone who doesn’t know the risks associated with vaginal bleaching should not try it, so if you decide to try it, do your homework and please work with a professional to guide you through the process.

If you use something at home, take certain precautions:

  • Test it first on a small patch of skin on your forearm and wait at least as long as the package says to see if you have any adverse reactions.
  • If you have an adverse reaction – such as pain, itching, or discoloration – on the skin of your arm, you will probably have it on the skin of your genitals.

Has your vulvar skin recently undergone a drastic color change? If so, ask a healthcare professional to help you determine if there is an underlying medical reason.

Is your vulva simply darker than you think it should be, or would you like it to be? You can rest assured that your vulva is healthy and normal. Vulvas and vaginas are like snowflakes. No two are alike – being different is normal! Having darker labia skin is normal too. If you go ahead with lightning treatments, take the above mentioned precautions to reduce the risk of long-term damage.
