The Best Creams, Gels & Kits for Anal Bleaching Treatments
Anal bleaching might sound like an intimidating procedure, but in actuality, it’s very easy to do yourself at home and, as long as you are educated about the options available, the chances of experiencing any unpleasant side effects are low.
Like any other skin lightening procedure, bleaching is intended to target discolored areas of skin to make them lighter and more aesthetically appealing.
Infancy science speak, bleaching creams and gels reduce hyper-pigmentation which is when there is an excessive concentration of melanin (dark pigment) in an area of skin.
Remember that results will vary depending on your ethnicity and the natural level of pigment in your private areas. Those with a darker complexion will require more treatments over a longer period of time.
If you’ve decided to add anal bleaching to your beauty regime, whether to boost your self-confidence, give your sex-life a lift or surprise your partner, then it’s important to learn a little more about the process before taking the plunge and buying a home anal bleaching kit.
Steps to Treating & Lightening The Anus
Firstly, if you have any infections, illnesses or are pregnant and/or breastfeeding then you should always consult a doctor before undergoing a bleaching treatment. This is because some products contain harsh chemical ingredients which can be potentially harmful.
For example, the chemical hydroquinone is present in many anal bleaching formulations but is now banned in all EU countries and across Asia after being linked to an increased risk of cancer, chemical burns, and other skin irritation.
Also, avoid any product containing mercury or an abundance of acid-based ingredients.
Contrary to some anal bleaching myths, discoloration around genital regions has nothing to do with whether you keep yourself clean or not, but is in fact related to your ethnicity and your body’s natural level of melanin (the dark pigment which causes discoloration).
Although poor hygiene isn’t the direct cause of skin discoloration, good personal hygiene is crucial in preparing for the anal bleaching treatment.
Wash and moisturize your anal region thoroughly and always make sure that it is completely dry before applying any anal bleaching cream or gel.
Always be extra gentle when drying your butt as it’s easy to break the skin by being too rough on intimate areas. If this happens then you’ll have to allow yourself time to heal before applying any anal bleaching products.
If any bleach comes into contact with micro-tears in the skin then your body will tell you!
Should you experience any burning sensation, pain or other irritation while applying bleach, stop treatment immediately and apply vaseline to protect the skin. Read more on the side effects of Anal Bleaching.
Read the instructions!
Every anal bleaching treatment is designed to achieve the same aim – a lighter, more aesthetically-pleasing ass, but the number of treatments and precise directions for use will vary according to the product that you buy.
Any product which contains hydroquinone is likely to require fewer treatments as this strong chemical agent works quickly. However, with this added strength comes an increased risk of skin irritation such as a burning sensation and, in worst case scenarios, chemical burns.
Forms of Treatment
Although you might prefer the idea of anal bleaching in the privacy of your own home, many beauty spas now offer butt beautifying treatments on their standard treatment menu.
Pros: Spa technicians typically use stronger intimate bleaches than those that you would purchase as part of a home-kit.
This means that the lightening results are likely to be faster and more effective.
Furthermore, so long as you have done your research and booked an appointment with a reputable spa with high levels of hygiene and expertise, you can rest assured that your unmentionables are in the right hands rather than having to learn how to apply bleach yourself.
Cons: As you would expect, the cost of spa treatments is likely to be far higher than any DIY option.
What’s more, you will need to book a series of appointments (depending on the level of hyperpigmentation/darkness around your nether regions).
Secondly, not all spas adhere to the same standards so it’s best to check out customer reviews or go on word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted friends before booking an appointment.
If you arrive for an appointment and notice that the place isn’t sparkling clean, or that the technician is reusing products then don’t be afraid to make a run for it and find someone who values your intimate health as much as you do!
Laser surgery might sound a little futuristic and somewhat scary, but it is one of the most effective, long-lasting (potentially permanent) anal bleaching treatments. Here’s what you need to know:
Pros: As only qualified technicians are allowed to perform laser surgery you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
The finished results of laser whitening can be remarkable as the discolored layer of skin is completely removed during the procedure.
As well as a sparkling vajayjay you’re also likely to leave your appointments with a course of antibiotics to greatly reduce the chances of contracting an infection.
Cons: Laser treatment doesn’t come cheap. Prices vary widely, depending on the area, clinic and seniority of the technician, but you will need multiple sessions, particularly if you suffer from extensive hyper-pigmentation or have a naturally dark skin tone.
Although you will be given a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort in private areas, it can take a few days to fully recover from laser treatments during which time you may feel a burning sensation, itching and other irritation as the skin heals.
Although it might sound like something out of a sci-fi film, cryosurgery is actually a very effective anal bleaching treatment.
Pros: Similarly to laser whitening, cryosurgery treatments can only be undertaken by a trained practitioner.
During your appointments, the technician will likely administer a local anesthetic before blasting discolored skin with liquid nitrogen making it a relatively painless procedure.
The extreme cold of the liquid nitrogen freezes and kills the unwanted discolored cells leaving the lighter natural skin in their place. Cryosurgery can have long-lasting results and can be extremely effective for those with dark complexions.
Cons: You might have already guessed that cryosurgery is definitely not the cheapest anal bleaching option out there.
As with laser treatment, you will need several appointments depending on the severity of your hyperpigmentation.
Although the sessions themselves are practically pain-free, the invasiveness of the treatment means that recovery can take a few days during which time you could potentially experience skin irritation, blisters and an increased risk of infection.
It almost goes without saying that you won’t be able to have sex for a few days after (although you probably won’t feel like it anyway!).
Is it really worth having my anus bleached?
Head-to-toe beauty treatments used to be the preserve of celebrities and a small number of people who could afford them. Thankfully, that’s no longer the cases.
More and more people are choosing to undergo anal bleaching treatments, whether they want to please a partner or boost your self-confidence.
The thing to remember is that there are many different options out there, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
We would recommend home-kits, but only those which exclude hydroquinone and the acid-based ingredients listed above.
It’s natural to feel a little nervous about applying a beauty treatment to such a sensitive area, but the risks are low and the results are definitely worth it.
