– Genital bleaching is a low risk procedure, that can have impressive results.
Skin, hair and the irises of your eyes all get their color from the pigment melanin. Melanin is produced in cells called melanocytes. Interestingly, the vulva has more melanocytes then many other body parts, yet it is the same skin tone as almost everywhere else.
Melanocytes respond to biological, physical and chemical stimuli and are part of the immune system. That is why during the lifetime due to shaving/folliculitis, friction from fabric and chafing, childbirth, hormones, infection, some medical conditions, age, or other factors, it can happened to genital and perianal region to become more dark – hyperpigmented. This hyperpigmentation is not pathological but to some people can be aesthetic problem.
