What is Intimate Area Lightening?
Initially made popular by the adult film industry and adopted by Hollywood movie stars as nudity became more commonplace, intimate area lightening is now becoming more mainstream along with Brazilian waxing and laser hair removal. Many people find the discoloration of the male and female intimate areas off-putting. Although the discoloration is completely normal, many people prefer to lighten the area so that it matches the rest of their skin tone.
Intimate area lightening is a process of bleaching the hyperpigmented (darker) skin of the surrounding the genital and anal areas to create an even skin tone that is cohesive over the entire body. This hyperpigmentation is completely normal and is the result of melanin, the pigment found in the skin.
Areas of the body that are exposed to UV rays or heat have more melanin than other places, making the genitalia more susceptible to hyperpigmentation because they are covered by clothes and naturally warmer than other parts of the body.
Hyperpigmentation can be exacerbated by other factors such as the natural process of aging, hormonal changes and pregnancy, infections, and a number of other medical conditions. Anything that causes excess heat, inflammation, or friction can cause areas of the skin to darken. But penile, vaginal, and anal whitening can remove this hyperpigmentation after just a few treatments.
