What is bleaching?

When a woman has given birth, or gets older, the vagina can change. For example, the skin of the labia majora can become a bit saggy, wrinkled and darker. Some women find this very annoying and unsightly and are bothered by it. Are these complaints recognizable? We would like to give you more information about the bleaching of the labia. Besides bleaching the labia by means of laser treatment, you can also opt for a peeling.

Happy Peel

A peel is effective for discoloration of the skin of your pubic area. With a chemical peel, the top layer of the skin can be removed. This eliminates small lesions in the skin, such as traces of scars and small wrinkles. The cosmetic gynecology assistant then applies a cream to your pubic area. The skin recovers after the peel and then looks fresher and younger.

You can go home the same day and in principle you will not experience any pain. The skin does feel dry and a bit tight. It is important to protect your skin from sunlight. Going under the sun for the first few weeks is also out of the question. The treatment takes on average 20-30 minutes. The treatment is virtually painless, but you can experience a tingling sensation. The effect of a peeling is immediately visible. The second treatment follows after two weeks.
