Intimate areas, such as labia or anus, although not directly exposed to solar radiation, are areas susceptible to discoloration.
The problem of darkening the intimate areas is an aesthetic defect resulting from excessive assembly of melanin in this area and can be embarrassing for a woman. Most often it is a hereditary propensity, it can also be the effect of taking certain medications or following pregnancy and childbirth. Bleaching the labia or anal area is a procedure involving the irradiation of the treatment surface with the rays of the fractional laser, causing its brightening and firming. The procedure is performed in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia (anesthetic ointment). The treatment does not require hospitalization, however the skin after it is irritated and can cause discomfort.
