Intimate lightening, also known as intimate whitening or anal bleaching, is a popular beauty treatment in which Men can lighten or “bleach” the skin of their intimate areas to create a more even skin tone, lighten or eliminate discoloration and to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
This non-traumatic, comfortable cosmetic treatment is designed to lighten areas such as – Skin around the Anus and Crack, Perineum, Inner Thighs, Underarms, Nipples. Darkness in these areas is very normal and common amongst men and can occur for a number of reasons. These can include; Friction (skin rubbing on skin, chafing during exercise, weight loss or gain, sexual contact) Skin Genetics, Age (over time, and with age, these areas can become darker) and a number of other reasons. A man’s dark spots and discolouration is made up of a concentration of melanocytes or melanin, which our treatment will aim to break up, and in turn lightening the treated area and rejuvenating and tightening the skin.
Man-Lab uses two different brands of tried, tested and trusted products that are designed specifically for intimate lightening and rejuvenation.
Intimate Lightening Process - What Can You Expect?
Every man’s skin type, skin pigment, colour and sensitivity is different, that’s why we use lightening products with a unique blend of ingredients that are safe to progressively lighten with no down time. We use a number of trusted and result proven products at different acid strengths to cater to all different skin types. Treatments can take from 30-60 minutes depending on number of areas treated and the type of product your therapist will use. Please be aware that everyone’s results are different and your therapist will work with you to achieve your individual desired result.
A difference in the skin tone and texture can be noticeable after 1 treatment, however, a number of treatments may be needed. We suggest waiting 2-4 weeks between treatments and waiting 2-4 weeks after each treatment for optimal results (wait time determined on skin type). In some cases you can also expect some light peeling and sensitivity after your sessions, which is a normal part of the lightening and rejuvenating process. We do like to stress and be clear that as each individual case is very different, we can not offer guaranteed results nor can we offer a definitive answer on how your skin will react individually. If you do have any questions and concerns, please book in a consultation with a Man-Lab Therapist prior to booking your treatment.
Man-Lab also offers package prices for multiple treatments or multiple areas so please contact us as we are happy to cater to your individual requirements.
