Anal Bleaching

What is anal bleaching?

Our Anal Bleaching treatment allows you to create a more uniform color of the anal area. We prefer the term anal pigment lightening as we use a hydroquinone-free lightening agent that is non-toxic and specifically designed to be safe to use in intimate, delicate areas. The genital area has the highest density of melanocytes (cells that make pigment) than anywhere in the body. The denser the pigment, the darker the skin. After the first session, most patients experience their skin tone lightening one to two shades in skin tone. Depending on your melanin depth, you may need additional treatments and, over time, you can expect to lighten up to six shades with consecutive treatments. Clients may book sessions one week apart for five weeks to see optimal results. Continue treatments once a month to maintain results.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does anal bleaching hurt?
No, there’s no pain, burning or discomfort during the application or recovery process. In rare occasions a patient may report very mild itching or dryness 1-3 days post peel. But it can be easily relieved by applying moisturizer to the area.

2. Does anal bleaching lighten up the hair around the hole?
No, the solution that we apply is a mild chemical peel that doesn’t actually contain bleach and therefore doesn’t interact with the hair it touches. Anal bleaching solutions years ago had various harsh ingredients, like peroxide, which would lighten hair and cause irriation. This formula is gentle and effective.

3. How many treatments does it take to see results?
It takes about 5 treatments to see up to 6 shades lighter, but most patients say they see results after the second treatment. It’s recommended to do the full series of 5 treatments and then just a touch up every 3-6 months.

4. Why should I bleach my hole?
There are no medical benefits to anal bleaching. Most people chose this service because they are looking for a lighter and brighter hole that many people find aesthetically pleasing. However, if you are also undergoing laser hair removal, one benefit of having a lighter and brighter hole is being able to take advantage of higher settings on the laser for hair removal, which means faster and better results.

5. What’s the process of anal bleaching like?
It’s quite simple. Our Aesthetic Nurse will apply the solution to your hole and the surrounding area, allow it to dry using a hand held fan, then reapply the solution 1-2 more times. Once it’s done being applied and has dried, you’re all set to go. You just wash it off before bed.
