Intimate lightening treatments in London are a popular choice amongst many wishing to reduce hyperpigmentation and discolouration around the intimate area. Our treatment utilises the CO2 laser to effectively reduce damaged skin, revealing renewed, healthy skin tissue. It involves little discomfort and downtime and is a safe treatment.

Pigmentation irregularities in intimate areas

The CO2 laser emits controlled pulses of light energy, which penetrate the skin’s layers to target excess pigmentation. This energy is absorbed by melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, causing it to break down and disperse. As a result, the treated area gradually lightens, achieving a more even and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

  • Safe and Effective: The CO2 laser we use, the SmartXide Touch Fractional CO2 Laser by DEKA, has a proven track record of safety and efficacy in treating pigmentation irregularities.
  • Precision: The laser’s precise targeting allows for accurate treatment of specific areas, ensuring optimal results. Healthy tissue remains untouched.
  • Minimal Downtime: Unlike more invasive procedures, our Intimate Lightening Treatment typically requires minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities shortly after the session.
  • Discreet: At Eve Clinics London, we understand the sensitive nature of intimate concerns. Our experienced professionals maintain strict confidentiality and discretion throughout the treatment process.

Causes of Skin Pigmentation in Intimate Areas

  1. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as those experienced during pregnancy, puberty, or menopause, can contribute to increased melanin production in intimate areas, leading to pigmentation irregularities.
  2. Friction: Friction caused by tight clothing, repetitive movement, or certain activities can irritate the skin in intimate areas, leading to inflammation and hyperpigmentation over time.
  3. Shaving and Waxing: Regular shaving or waxing in intimate areas can cause irritation and inflammation, resulting in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) as the skin heals.
  4. Genetics: Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to developing pigmentation irregularities in intimate areas, as certain skin types are more prone to producing excess melanin.
  5. Sun Exposure: Although intimate areas are typically covered, prolonged sun exposure without adequate protection can still contribute to pigmentation issues. UV radiation can stimulate melanin production, leading to darkening of the skin over time.
  6. Skin Conditions: Certain skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, or fungal infections, can cause inflammation and pigmentation changes in intimate areas as a result of the body’s immune response.
  7. Age: As we age, our skin’s natural renewal process slows down, leading to a buildup of dead skin cells and a decrease in collagen production. This can contribute to uneven skin tone and pigmentation issues in intimate areas.
  8. Chemical Irritants: Exposure to harsh chemicals present in certain skincare products, detergents, or personal hygiene products can irritate the delicate skin in intimate areas, leading to inflammation and pigmentation changes.

What does hyperpigmentation look like?

Hyperpigmentation in intimate areas typically appears as areas of darker pigmentation compared to the surrounding skin. The colouration can range from light brown to deep brown or even black, depending on the severity of the pigmentation.

The affected areas can have:

  1. Patchiness: Hyperpigmentation may appear as patches or spots of darker skin, which can vary in size and shape.
  2. Uneven Skin Tone: The skin in intimate areas may have an uneven appearance, with areas of increased pigmentation interspersed with normal skin tone.
  3. Increased Pigmentation along Friction Lines: In areas where there is increased friction, such as the inner thighs or groin area, hyperpigmentation may be more pronounced along the lines of friction.
  4. Texture Changes: In some cases, hyperpigmented areas may feel slightly raised or rough to the touch, especially if there is underlying inflammation or irritation.
  5. Symmetry: Hyperpigmentation in intimate areas may occur symmetrically on both sides of the body, although this is not always the case.
  6. Variation in Colour Intensity: The intensity of hyperpigmentation may vary within the affected areas, with some areas appearing darker than others.

It’s important to note that hyperpigmentation in intimate areas can vary greatly from person to person and may be influenced by factors such as skin type, genetics, and underlying medical conditions.

What to Expect

Before the treatment, you will have a medical consultation with one of our skin professionals to discuss your concerns and goals. Based on your individual needs, a personalised treatment plan will be tailored to ensure the best possible results. We will also conduct a patch test to ensure you are suitable for treatment.

During the treatment session, a numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area to enhance your comfort. The CO2 laser will then be carefully applied to the targeted areas, delivering controlled pulses of light energy. While you may experience a mild tingling sensation, the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Aftercare: Following the treatment, you may experience some temporary redness or mild discomfort, which typically resolves within a few days. It’s important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by us to ensure optimal results and minimise the risk of complications.
