Labial bleaching, commonly known as labial whitening, is a gynecological cosmetic procedure that uses laser to brighten the skin on the labia. The treatment works by getting rid of skin hyperpigmentation, which might have been caused by different factors like hormones, aging, childbirth or genetics. At King’s College Hospital, our doctors use FemiLift, which is the next generation in laser intimate treatments.
Candidates for Labial Bleaching with Laser
To be eligible for a labial bleaching procedure, you have to fit a certain criterion including:
- Having realistic expectations
- Being in good physical and psychological health
- Not having skin ailments like psoriasis, lupus, genital warts or herpes
- Having significant pigmentation on the labial skin
Expected Results After the Procedure
After a laser labial bleaching procedure, your skin tone will be brighter than it was before and more youthful with a smooth texture.
Frequently Asked Questions About Labial Bleaching with Laser
- How many labia whitening sessions are needed?
Laser labia bleaching requires between two and six sessions for effective results depending on the severity of the pigmentation. Each case is different, so, the treatment is tailor-made to fit the patient’s needs. The specialist will give you more information on this during consultation.
- When will the results be seen?
This depends on the nature of your skin pigmentation. You can start seeing the results from the first month onwards, depending on the number of labia bleaching sessions needed. But your doctor should be able to give you more information on this.
- What is the cost of labia bleaching with laser?
The cost of labia whitening is determined upon consultation with our board-certified aesthetic gynaecologist. This also depends on the nature of the skin pigmentation as well as the patient’s skin tone.
- Is there any downtime after the procedure?
Just like any other laser skin treatment, you should expect a degree of downtime after the labia whitening procedure. The skin will feel sensitive immediately after, which should disappear within 24 hours.
Labia Whitening Precautions
Immediately after the whitening treatment, you’ll be provided with a topicalcream, which you should apply continuously for up to six months. During this time, you should avoid sun exposure to the treated area. Additionally, for the first 24 hours after the laser treatment, the area should not come in contact with water.
