Vaginal Bleaching Procedures
Chemical peels and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) are two popular methods used for vaginal whitening. Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layer and stimulates new cell growth. The chemical solution used for vaginal whitening peels contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). AHAs work by breaking down the protein bonds that hold dead skin cells together, while TCA is a stronger chemical that penetrates deeper into the skin.
During a chemical peel for vaginal whitening, the skin in the vulva, perineum, and anal area is cleansed and prepped for the procedure. The chemical solution is then applied to the skin using a brush or cotton swab, and left on for a specific amount of time depending on the strength of the solution and the desired result. The solution is then neutralized and removed with water, and a soothing cream is applied to the treated area.
IPL, on the other hand, uses pulses of light to target the melanin in the skin and break it down. This reduces the production of melanin, which leads to a lighter and brighter skin tone. IPL for vaginal whitening is a non-invasive procedure that is performed by a trained technician using a handheld device that emits pulses of light. The device is placed over the skin in the vulva, perineum, and anal area, and the pulses of light are delivered in short bursts. The procedure is painless, and patients may experience a mild warming or tingling sensation.
