Intimate bleaching is quickly gaining popularity among women who are seeking to reverse hyper pigmentation in the most private regions of the body. Serrão Rejuvenation Center, led by Dr. John Serrão, a board certified gynecologist who specializes in cosmetic gynecology and cosmetic surgery of the female body, offers intimate bleaching to patients in Orlando and Winter Park, Florida.
What is Intimate Bleaching?
If you looked in the mirror, you may have noticed that not all of the skin on your body is the same color. In fact, it is quite normal for the skin in intimate areas such as the vulva, anus, underarms and inner thighs to be a different color than the skin on the stomach or back. Intimate bleaching, as a result, works to lighten these darker regions–areas of hyperpigmentation–so that they match the skin tone in the surrounding areas of the body.
The Origins of Intimate Bleaching
Although intimate bleaching is now becoming mainstream, it was not always this way. In fact, the procedure began in the adult entertainment industry, before gaining popularity amongst mainstream Hollywood celebrities, and finally picking up momentum with women, worldwide.
Interest in this procedure grew alongside interest in Brazilian waxing and modern, social trends towards creating a smoother, hairless appearance. With less hair covering these intimate places, the darker skin color became more noticeable and, for some women, less appealing. Fortunately, intimate bleaching exists to address these cosmetic concerns.
How Intimate Bleaching Works
With a combination of professional treatments and a home care regimen, we can successfully lighten the desired areas. This means that the process of intimate bleaching will be done both in our office and in the comfort of your home.
It is important to note, however, that hyperpigmentation in any area of the body will require time and patience to reverse. Because of this, we recommend three to six treatments for our clients to see the best results. The specifics of your treatment protocol will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Serrão.
Although many individuals seek a DIY (do it yourself) alternative to intimate bleaching, these options can be less safe and less effective than what is available from a professional. These are highly sensitive areas of the body, and you should perform any bleaching with the utmost care.
Am I a Good Candidate for Intimate Bleaching?
The good news is that intimate bleaching is successful for a wide range of individuals. However, there are some for whom this procedure may not be a good fit. You may not be a good candidate for intimate bleaching, if you have a history of:
- Herpes or genital warts
Of course, the best way to determine your candidacy for intimate bleaching is to speak with Dr. Serrão. During your consultation, you will review your medical history and he will offer his advice for the best plan of action.
