Intimate whitening, also known as intimate lightening 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 discolouration 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, and in some cases, the Scrotum and Shaft of the Penis. 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 dark) 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, in turn lightening the treated area and rejuvenating and tightening the skin.
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 in most cases. Depending on your skin tone, we suggest 1-3 treatments to achieve your desired result. We suggest 1-2 treatments for Caucasian skin and 2-3 treatments for Ethnic skin, however, each individual desired result is different. We suggest waiting 2 weeks between treatments and waiting 2 weeks after each treatment for optimal results. 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. 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.
Before the treatment…
To prepare the skin you will need to :
- Wax 3-5 days before (In some cases we can perform the treatment after Waxing but please consult your therapist regarding this) or
- Shave 1-2 days before
…after the treatment
To speed up and enhance the results, its extremely important to follow the therapist aftercare advice. We suggest – No sport or exercise for 24-48 hours, no sexual contact for 24 hours, keep the area moist, use wet wipes in place of toilet paper. Clients should also use any aftercare products as directed by your therapist and please contact or text Man-Lab if you have any concerns or questions post treatment.
Once you have achieved your desired result. we suggest one session every 6-12 months.
