Laser Vaginal Lightening (Vulval Bleaching)

What is Laser Vulval Bleaching (Vaginal Lightening)?

Laser Vulval Bleaching / vaginal lightening, also known as “Laser Vaginal Bleaching” or “Vaginal Bleaching”, is an advanced, laser-assisted, 30 to 40-minute procedure that helps to lighten the pigmentation of the vaginal skin to achieve the desired result of an even toned, lighter skin which improves the aesthetics of your intimate regions. Putting it short and straight, it can be called ‘Whitening of Vagina’.

Depending on your condition, the procedure can consist of two or more sessions. This low-risk, non-surgical, laser assisted treatment is performed under local anesthesia and is painless.

Laser Vulval Bleaching is particularly advantageous for women that have genital hyperpigmentation – a typically harmless condition that causes the formation of uneven patches of dark coloration in the vaginal region for women.

How is laser vaginal whitening/lightening done?

What we do at our clinic is a non-invasive procedure performed using advanced laser. The patient will be first put under anesthesia (local). Once the anaesthesia takes effect, the laser is used to remove the pigmented layers of melanin. Pigmentation of skin is caused by accumulation of melanin by the Melatonin hormones.


Is whitening of vagina a painful treatment?

No. The patient will not feel any pain during the procedure. Usage of advanced double wave laser will be almost painless and even scarless.


What is the cost of vaginal lightening?

The cost will vary from patient to patient and from clinic to clinic.  It depends on the level of pigmentation happened and the number of sessions required. At our clinic, we can assure you that we will keep the prices highly affordable.

Recovery from Laser Vulval Bleaching (Vaginal Lightening)

Complete recovery from Laser Vulval Bleaching usually takes about a week’s time. It highly recommended that you refrain from sexual intercourse for at least 4 days post the procedure.

It is common to experience mild discomfort, itching and sensitivity soon after the procedure. Furthermore, the procedure by itself is painless but you may experience feeble pain after the procedure for which pain-killers may be prescribed by your gynecologist.

Is there any other approach for Laser Vaginal Lightening?

Yes, there are chemical peels (genital peels) that are available. But they are not an alternative to Laser Vaginal Lightening because the results given are very short lived. A chemical peel is a non-toxic chemical that is applied to the area around the vagina. The top most layer of skin around the vagina is only 0.1mm thick and the chemical peels aim to remove that layer revealing the underlying layer that looks much lighter than the top one. Genital bleaching using chemical peels are done as an out patient procedure. A cosmetic gynecologist will be able to apply the chemical evenly and at appropriate places so that your vagina or vaginal canal remains safe.
