LASER INTIMATE SKIN LIGHTENING
We are the only provider in Tampa Bay that specializes in Laser Intimate Skin Lightening!
Intimate Skin Lightening, as the term implies, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reverse skin darkening around Intimate areas namely the Vaginal Labia, Bikini or Inner Thighs, Perianal Area and it also encompasses areas involving a fold like Underarms, Back of Neck, Elbows and Knees and more.
Did you know that over a quarter million men and women per year perform Laser Intimate Skin Lightening? This treatment is almost as common as shaving your legs!
Intimate Skin pigmentation is often due to shaving, friction from fabric, childbirth, hormone related, or simply due to aging. Laser Intimate Skin Lightening is a safe and comfortable treatment, usually completed within 20 minutes. Generally, around 3-4 treatments are recommended every 20-30 days for optimal results, however, depending on the case, sometimes even 2 treatments are sufficient!

INTIMATE SKIN LIGHTENING TAMPA
Using our Fotona SP and StarWalker Lasers, an advanced non-invasive ablative technology, we gently remove micro thin layers of pigmented surface tissue, revealing lighter skin and stimulating fresh, less pigmented cell development.
The greatest advantage of this laser technique is that vaginal bleaching can be achieved fairly quickly and with little effort on your part. An additional benefit of using the Fotona Erbium Laser as vaginal bleaching is that the new skin developed will be tighter and smoother because of the stimulated collagen regeneration. Furthermore, there are few side effects and generally a mild sensitivity and temporary redness resolve within a few days.
Common areas are:
- Anal (perianal)
- Inner Thighs
- Bikini Line
- Posterior neck
- Under Breasts
There are many causes ranging from lifestyle to health. Discoloration of intimate areas can be caused by aging, hormonal changes from pregnancy, infections and medical conditions such as Contact Dermatitis or STDs, and only a properly trained certified professional can help you determine the best course of action or if Intimate Skin Bleaching (ISB) is right for you. There are a few things that you can do in the meantime to prevent the skin from further discoloration; however, they are not guaranteed. Avoiding coffee, dark sodas, and artificial colors in food can help with the discoloration of the peri-anal area, for example. Discontinued use of deodorants that contain alcohol also helps with pigmentation in the underarm area. The use of G-strings, not only makes the rectal opening more visible, hence the need for some women to bleach the peri-anal area, but the actual use of G-strings causes the peri-anal (and vaginal) area to become darker with the rubbing of the material (usually nylon) against the skin, causing laceration or burning of the skin. So, women who are frequent users of G-strings tend to have darker peri-anal and vaginal areas.
Shaving and waxing the pubic area causes more pigmentation due to heat, inflammation and friction. In general, anything that produces heat, inflammation, laceration, and friction may cause hyperpigmentation, also known as Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH).
As with anything, you should consult a doctor if you suspect that health is the culprit. A certified personnel is able to determine if a health condition might be present and refer you to an appropriate health provider. A thorough consultation to determine the contraindications is necessary.
Everyone’s skin is a bit different so there is no hard and fast rule for how long it will take to lighten your skin.An average of 3-4 sessions is what we recommend to get noticeable changes. Again, as everyone is different and reacts differently to the same treatment, the need for more sessions is possible.
