There is, actually, a medical procedure that will lighten the skin in your anal region. Using extreme temperatures, skin layers are modified or destroyed so that the area appears lighter in color. However, this procedure is not the cheapest and can only be done by a doctor. Moreover, cryosurgery is more cosmetic, will most likely not be covered by your insurance. Lastly, as this is classified as surgery, there are risks associated with the procedure. It can also be painful and take a while to heal.
Anal bleaching can also be achieved with the use of laser treatment. Using a high-powered laser, the layer of melanin that makes you darker down there will be removed. Thus, the result is lighter skin. This procedure is also not the cheapest, as you will pay for every visit you make to the doctor. Another downside is that at least a week before the procedure, you are not allowed to engage in sexual activity. Lastly, going through laser treatment is actually quite painful and uncomfortable. You will also need to take great care after the procedure to avoid infection, so maintaining good hygiene is critical.
Scarring used to be a risk many years ago, but newer methods have made this almost impossible. Still, laser treatment is the most effective and the quickest way to getting lighter skin in your sensitive areas.
Many procedures can be done in one of the numerous spas all over, and now you can easily find one that offers anal bleaching as well. Compared to the other methods mentioned above, you can expect to pay much less. And as they are not medical procedures, there is less risk to the patient. However, the truth is it won’t be that much different than doing it at home yourself.
They will be using a cream or gel, much like what you can buy yourself. Of course, the difference is that someone else will apply it for you, which is no easy feat. Unfortunately, you will most likely not be able to choose which product to use, as opposed to home treatments. Worse, the spa might also just instruct you on how to continue it at home.
Of course, you can simply buy a DIY whitening cream and do it all yourself with doctor-developed Intilight and it will be the cheapest and safest way.
