bleaching in your privates
do it? And more questions answered....
Jenna from Minneapolis asks, "I was recently watching an episode of Dr. 90210 and I saw the segment in which the actress Tabitha Stevens goes to a salon for
skin bleaching in her private area. I do have
Brazilian bikini wax regularly since my husband likes it and now I am wondering if
skin whitening in that area is for me. I mean, it is a bit dark down there and most women I spoke to say the same. What do you think?"
Indeed, this procedure is starting to emerge along with permanent
hair removal in that area. Japanese
and Brazilian women popularized the hair removal part and
the Hollywood actresses are now getting the skin bleached. And while it does not truly fit the definition of
plastic surgery, it is something that some medical salons and spas are offering. And like
hymenoplasty, no one talks about it much but if you ask discreetly any spa or salon will do it for you.
||What happens during the bleaching treatment?
The spa professional will first clean the area using a natural or sometimes synthetic antiseptic
cleaning product. Since many women choose to have hair removal done using
waxing or other
procedures at the same time, that will
be the next step. In the second stage, a bleaching chemical is applied and left on as it gradually lightens the skin color.
The chemical is cleaned and you are ready to go.
Since you are using a professional to do it for you, expect to pay between $50 and $100 depending on what else you include (e.g. waxing may cost extra in some cases).
Can you do it yourself?
Yes, a large number
skin whitening or lightening or
bleaching creams are available on the market. However, you may want to use the help of another person to get it right. Otherwise, make sure that you have enough
mirrors. Remember that only the
bleaching part can be done at home;
for hair removal you might want to use
Self tanning products
