Laser Vulvar whitening

Laser Vulvar whitening

Laser vulvar whitening is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment to make your vaginal skin lighter. Also known as a bikini whitening treatment, it is a form of cosmetic and aesthetic gynaecology that helps women to enhance the appearance of their intimate areas and boost self-confidence. 

Why do you need laser vulvar whitening treatment?

Vaginal whitening treatment is not medically necessary but is an entirely personal preference. Vaginal hyperpigmentation is absolutely natural and is caused by friction (while walking, running, or sexual intercourse), childbirth, excessive sweating, dryness, and hormonal and physical changes. It happens to many women and might have happened to you too. 

For some women, vaginal hyperpigmentation is not a big deal, while for other ladies, it can lower self-confidence and affect their sexual life. So, if you are someone who wants an even skin-tone vagina, then this treatment is for you. 

Why choose Laser for vulvar skin whitening?

Certainly, there are some surgical and medicinal treatments for skin lightening. Surgical procedures can be intimidating and invasive and might leave scars, not to mention downtime, and medicines can take too long to get the desired results; even so, they might not even work for you. However, laser treatment is minimally invasive and very effective for vulvar skin whitening. Lasers have been used for cosmetic treatment for a long time, From anti-aging laser facial treatment to laser hair removal. Lasers provide painless and long-lasting effects for treating skin tissues. And now cosmetic gynecology is also using lasers for various treatments. 

How do lasers work for skin lightening?

Melanin present in our skin tissues is responsible for the darkening of the skin. Apparently, skin tissues in our intimate areas, like the pubic, groin, anus, vagina, and perianal area, accumulate more melanin causing darkening of the skin. Likewise, your vaginal area appears darker than your skin tone. 

The energy from the laser beam will heat the tissues of the skin. This will do two things, it will micro peel the top layer of vaginal skin and suppress melanin production, and secondly, it will stimulate new collagen genesis in the tissues. The new collagen production will nourish and lighten the skin over time. This process will discolor your outer vagina, from the valva to the perineum, and it can depigment your anus as well. 

After laser treatment, your surgeon may prescribe you some skin-lightening creams for better results. 

Can I get this treatment? 

Yes, if you want to, you can get this treatment; it is risk-free and painless. Just make sure you:

  • Don’t have any vaginal infections like vaginal warts
  • Don’t have lupus and herpes

Consult your gynecologist before getting this treatment. 

What is the procedure and how to prepare for vulvar skin whitening with a Laser?

The treatment follows a simple procedure, which can take 3-5 sessions, 30-40 mins each, 4-6 weeks apart. The number of sessions depends on your specific skin and your satisfaction. If you are fit to get this treatment, here is how the procedure follows;


Before the day of treatment, keep these things in check:

  • No saving, waxing, using hair removal cream, 3 days before the treatment
  • Keep your outer vaginal skin clean and moisturized 

During Treatment: 

On the day of treatment, wear comfortable clothes to the clinic, preferably cotton clothes, and keep your vagina dry. The doctor will numb your vagina with a topical cream or anesthetic to ensure you want to feel any pain. The doctor will focus a laser device on the dark, pigmented area of the vagina. And the Laser will send a beam to the targeted area, removing the top dark layer of the vaginal skin and spontaneously triggering collagen production in the tissues. This will eventually lighten the skin complexion and make it even with the rest of the skin tone, giving it a glowing, pinkish, and nourishing under-tone. It will also make the vulvar and outer vaginal area tight and firm. The vaginal skin will be exposed to the laser beam for about 15-20 mins. Afterward, the practitioner will apply a cooling ointment to the treated area to cool down the skin. 

Recovery period and Post-treatment:

There is no need for recovery time. The procedure is totally safe without any cuts and scrapes; you’ll not have to bear any pain. You’ll just feel some soreness. You can just continue your day after treatment. However:

  • Don’t apply anything to your vaginal area for 3-4 days unless suggested by the physician
  • Wear soft, comfy cotton undergarments
  • Maintain hygienic vagina
  • No sex for 3-4 days, and refrain from more physical activities like sports
  • Keep treated skin safe from sun exposure.
