Desire to compete with western world has led to changes in perspective of our urban females also. Females are a lot more confident and conscious nowadays. They understand the importance of active sexual life and intimate health which does not stop just by giving birth to their progeny. A discoloured perineal region is hated by both males and females and results in low self esteem and sexual dysfunction. They not only want their face to be perfect and young but also the vulva to be equally attractive. The swim wear which used to come till mid thigh has gradually transformed to show both your hip bones side ridges. Hence whereas in the past, there were discoveries about new bikini hair removal methods only, focus now has also involved how to keep vulval skin young and less pigmented.
Yes, we are referring to new trend of genital bleaching which is a procedure to lighten darkened skin in genital areas – labia majora, internal thighs and the perianal area. Hyperpigmented skin is usually due to melanin excess. This can be patchy or involving large areas and make the skin thick and prune like. Many of our females are still ignorant about it, hence they can just walk in to KALOSA CLINIC to understand this better. This page would definitely give you an insight about the possible methods and their advantages.
We should also understand that labia and vulva color are unique to each person and are totally natural and healthy. There is no ‘normal’ look and undergoing these cosmetic procedures is entirely your own decision.

At Kalosa Clinic, we have two options for genital bleaching
Pre-Conditioning - This is an important step to achieve better results and reduce post procedure pigmentation. It is usually started 6 weeks before the actual procedure. We highly recommend this to have best results.
Pre Peel Instructions –Thorough counselling of the patient is done for the pre procedure instruction.
Sun exposure and smoking to be avoided from 2 weeks prior to the therapy.
Procedure is not preferred during menstruation.
Peel Procedure –
Usually medium depth peels are used eg- azelic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid peels.
Areas covered are Labia majora, perianal and thigh (labia minora is never touched)
Usually 2-3 coats of peel are applied.
Each session takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
Post Peel Instruction – treated area should not be rinsed for 6 hours post procedure.
No intercourse or swimming is allowed for next 3 days.
Adequate hygiene and moisturization to be followed.
Results – Usually 5-6 sittings are required.
Skin peeling appears 3-5 days after the procedure.
Options–CO2, Erbium, Q Switch.
At Kalosa, we usually prefer CO2 laser.
Mechanism – It causes tissue ablation and promotes accelerated re-epithelisation, and tissue regeneration. This makes skin tone even and texture better.
Darker skin tones are not suitable for laser bleaching due to risk of hypo-pigmentation (patchy white areas appearing following the laser treatment).
