Women talk freely about cellulite, firmness of breasts, and no to taut and flat tummy as they would like and more often than not consult a cometic surgeon for remedies.

Slight discoloration is normal but often not desirable.  Intimate area lightening or vaginal bleaching treatments in India help increase the self confidence of men and women in these intimate areas and thus give them an increased feeling of attractiveness and empowerment. These treatments are also called as genital bleaching.

The vagina and the pre anal area are a very sensitive part of the body and issues with it can have a serious impact on life. Though dark vaginal skin is not a health issue it is still an emotional issue. Dark or pigmented skin at the intimate area quite common are caused because of hyperpigmentation due to increase density of melanocytes that darken the skin. There is no one factor that contributes to vaginal darkening, top intimate area lightening doctors in India list the following main factors that cause intimate darkening

  • Age: It is quite natural for the skin to turn dark as a person ages. This happens because of hormonal changes, changes in the skin elasticity and texture etc. Older men and women have a darker intimate area skin than their younger self.
  • Lack of ventilation: Wearing tight clothes and undergarments that don’t let air circulate freely around the intimate regions are another major cause of darkening of the skin and affecting its texture and tone. Therefore, top cosmetic gynaecologists in India always recommend wearing well fitter undergarments that allow free circulation of air and don’t let the sweat clog skin pores.
  • Friction: The main cause of skin darkening of the intimate areas is constant friction. This can be cause of walking, obesity, exercising and even intercourse. Wear G strings for long periods of time, or wearing nylon clothing can also cause friction and change in skin tone of the vaginal and pre anal areas. Use of shaving creams and waxing the intimate areas also increase friction and cause lacerations leading to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which makes the skin dark.
  • Sweating: Some sweat is good for the vluva as it keeps a check on its pH balance, however it can be major contributor in darkening of skin if it washed or cleaned properly. Sweat is composed of biochemicals which can affect the skin and hence it needs to be taken care of properly.
  • Skin infections: Infections, tears in the intimate region can cause itching and dry skin. this in turn darkens the skin tone and can even result in pigmented patches on the skin.
  • Heredity: In some men and women dark skin areas are a heredity trait. This does not mean that it cannot be treated or resolved.
  • Bad eating habits and smoking: Imbalance in body because of use of narcotics etc. reflects on the skin tone and increases pigmentation. This coupled with some of the above mentioned factors result in tone difference in skin.
