Vaginal Whitening

Vaginal Whitening

The skin in the intimate and genital regions becomes more textured and dark as we age. Shaving and waxing affect pigmentation over time and contribute to the poor texture and uneven color. Some females seek safe and effective treatment options for hyperpigmentation and pubic lightening.Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center in Edmonton provides safe and effective vaginal whitening. It is a novel procedure that can aid in the removal of vaginal pigmentation and soften the labia texture. We frequently target the peri-anal region, labia majora, and groin region in this treatment

How does Vaginal Whitening Work?

We developed the Albany Vaginal Whitening Protocol, after gathering hundreds of patients’ results and feedback. 

Preparation phase

As a preparation for the treatment, we ask you to go through a chemical lightening process that involves applying Hydroquinone to your skin for two weeks. Although these lightning agents will not produce the desired results, they will help to reduce the activity of pigment cells and will assist in putting them into a less reactive state. 

Resting Phase

You will stop the bleaching cream for two days before the laser treatment 

Treatment Phase

During the treatment, we apply a combination of a nanosecond laser and Er:Yag laser to reduce pigmentation in the vaginal and groin area. 

  • Spectra Laser

The nanosecond laser employs a short pulse duration that targets pigment cells and causes a photoacoustic “shattering” effect which results in crusting and shedding of the skin, which heals after a few days. 

  • Fotona Laser

The Fotona Er: Yag laser targets water as a chromophore, which helps in skin resurfacing in order to obtain newer and lighter skin without using excessive heat.Vaginal Whitening is a safe and effective procedure that can aid in the removal of pigmentation and leave your vagina pink and soft.

Vaginal Whitening FAQs

After the treatment, patients can expect about 50 to 90 percent reduction in vaginal hyperpigmentation.
For a few days after the treatment, you may experience itching and mild burning. However, these usually go away. To relieve the itching and burning sensation, apply topical ointments. You can also resume your normal activities a few days after the treatment. For a few weeks, avoid activities like running, jogging, and sexual intimacy. Your skin will be able to heal as a result of this.
The client’s sexual pleasure may improve following the vaginal whitening course, as the clit will go through the same laser rejuvenation process.
If the results are not maintained, the hyperpigmentation may reoccur. It is best to use home lighting products and clinic maintenance treatments that use nanosecond pulsed light technology. It is required at regular intervals throughout the year following the initial treatment.
Many patients observe a substantial change in skin color of up to three shades after the first treatment; however, because pigment changes in the skin take time, four-week intervals will likely help you obtain the greatest results. After laser therapy, little redness and swelling may occur, and we advise you to refrain from sexual activity until you have fully recovered.
Several treatments are required. The first phase lasts 4 to 8 weeks, followed by a few treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart in the second and third phases. In general, improving the appearance of vaginal hyperpigmentation in this region takes 3 to 9 months.

Vaginal Whitening Complete Guide

Our clients love the laser vaginal lightening whitening treatment for the following reasons

  • The treatment session takes only 45 minutes on average
  • The instruction is easy to follow

The Procedure step-by-step

When you come in for your vaginal lightening process, the laser technician will gently clean the area and apply vaginal lidocaine cream to improve the comfort of the treatment. 

The treatment starts with the spectra laser, which we frequently use for pigmentation of the face and body. The laser targets the melanin molecule in the vaginal area and helps to remove the excess pigment that causes the darker color.

The Renovalase Fotona Erbium Laser is an ablative laser that removes the thin superficial layers of pigmented surface tissue. This, in turn, reveals lighter skin and promotes the development of fresh, less pigmented cells. The new skin will be tighter and smoother as the Fotona laser stimulates collagen and elastin formation, a lovely side of laser treatment. The lighter and tighter vaginal outer skin is worth the few days of redness and discomfort. 

Am I a good candidate for Vaginal Whitening treatment?

Vaginal whitening treatment is recommended for clients whose skin color in the groin area is darker than the rest of the body.

What are the expected side effects of Vaginal Whitening treatment?

Vaginal whitening is a safe treatment; however, there is a risk of hyper or hypopigmentation like any laser treatment. Thus, we perform a test spot during the consultation, and we monitor for any side effects before doing the actual treatment.

Who is not a good candidate for Vaginal Whitening treatment?

  • The Vaginal Whitening is not recommended for clients with the following:
  • Any strictures, conditions, infection, or abnormalities within the urinary system
  • Pregnancy, or trying to get pregnant, breastfeeding.
  • The use of oral Isotretinoin, Vit A, Accutane

What is the price of the Vaginal Whitening treatment?

The cost is $450 per session. Most client requires four sessions to reach optimal results; however, every case is different, and some clients might need fewer or more sessions depending on the observed results.

What is Vaginal Whitening treatment downtime?

You should be able to resume your usual activities, including employment, immediately after treatment. Clients are advised to avoid extreme heat exposure in the treated area to avoid side effects and recurrence of pigmentation.

How to get ready for Vaginal Whitening treatment?

Avoid anticoagulant or blood thinner medications (such as aspirin), anti-inflammatory drugs like Advil, and limiting alcohol intake to reduce the risk of bleeding.

The Fotona SMOOTH-mode treatment causes deep collagen remodeling and new collagen synthesis. When collagen is subjected to a suitable temperature increase, its fibers contract abruptly, causing the irradiated bulk tissue to constrict and shrink. The thermal effect on collagen is not just temporary when exposed to higher temperatures; it lasts throughout the collagen remodeling and neocollagenesis processes, resulting in new collagen and a significant improvement in the tightness and elasticity of the treated tissue.
