Body/intimacy lightening is a way to lighten the skin around a specific region, also known as intimate bleaching. Both men and women can benefit from this treatment. Depending on the region to be treated, the procedure can take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. There is no discomfort or pain associated with this body/intimacy lightening treatment. The inner thighs, underarms, vaginal, and anal region are all possible treatment areas. Individual outcomes vary depending on skin type, how dark/ pigmented the area is, and how lightened you desire to be.
Our Intimacy lightening procedure allows for lightening and resurfacing of intimate areas. This treatment results in a brighter and more even appearance of the skin in intimate areas. The Intimacy Lightening treatment consists of prepping and cleansing the skin with our Sage Skin MD antioxidant spray and then applying a brightening mask. We allow it to penetrate the skin through the use of steam for approximately 10 minutes. We then proceed to apply a multi-acid peel and accompany it with LED light therapy that aids in deeper penetration and lifting pigment. We conclude the treatment with a brightening Vitamin C and if requested we proceed to do the same to the posterior side/anal region (this side does not receive LEDs).
Why Undergo Body/Intimacy Lightening Treatment?
Body/intimacy lightening is a noninvasive treatment for improving the skin clarity and pigmentation of the underarms and intimate areas.
While hyperpigmentation is a common occurrence, some patients may find the pigmented region unappealing. Fortunately, these individuals can attain an even skin tone through consistent body/intimacy lightening treatments and home care.
Body/intimacy lightening therapy can help anyone with darkened skin (hyperpigmentation) in their underarms, genital, anal, or inner-thigh areas. While hyperpigmentation can be natural or inherited, it can also be aggravated by hormonal changes, pregnancy, an infection in the area, skin rubbing, and aging.
A consultation is required prior to skin/intimacy lightening therapy. One of our skilled skin experts will talk with you about what your main concerns are during your consultation and prepare a treatment plan for you. Your medical history will be discussed, including aspects like current medications, allergies, recent treatments, and any pre-existing health conditions. Our skin expert will instruct you on how to best prepare for your scheduled treatment.
You should wear unrestricting clothing and have the area being treated shaved on the day of your skin/intimacy lightening treatment. Your procedure will be performed in a quiet, serene, and hygienic setting by one of our well-trained professional skin experts.
During the lightening treatment, you will typically experience a small tingling sensation. After your treatment session you will be given aftercare recommendations to ensure the best possible results.
The recommended number of treatments to start with is 4-6 every 4-6 weeks and will vary based on the patients’ individual needs and desired outcome. Upon completion of your first treatment, the treatment will be customized per patient to increase results by adding different masks and increasing the level of active ingredients based on the patient’s tolerance. The procedure is normally completed within 45 minutes to an hour. In between treatments, our Sage Skin MD Brightening Pads should be used twice daily to boost your intimacy lightening results. We ask that you arrive to your appointment clean, shaven, and not on your menstrual term (except on other body parts).
Body/Intimacy Lightening Treatment Aftercare
After the body/intimacy lightening procedure, there will be no downtime or recovery time required. The area may be temporarily red and flushed in appearance. Redness will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment, and within the next 24 hours, the skin will be generally calmed. A cold pack may be used to encourage this process.
The skin of the treated area will be more prone to sun damage after body/intimacy lightening. Because of this, it will be important to avoid sun exposure, sun beds, and tanning. You will need to apply a proper sunscreen of SPF 30+ regularly.
Avoid steam rooms, swimming pools, saunas, and heavy exercise while your skin heals. Do not use any exfoliating products. You will be able to apply makeup again after 24 hours.
All skin types, even those with sensitive skin, may benefit from our Body/intimacy lightening therapy. The number of sessions you will require is determined by how pigmented your skin is in targeted area. For the best results, most people require 3-6 treatments.
Once all treatments have been completed and all redness has faded, the results of your body/intimacy lightening can be seen. The skin of the area will be lighter, creating much less of a contrast with the surrounding skin.
The Cost of a Body/Intimacy Lightening Treatment
The price of body/intimacy lightening treatment varies from client to client and depends on several factors. The number of areas being treated can affect cost, as can the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve your ideal results.
