Intimate Bikini Lightening Treatments

Many women & men experience skin discolouration and dark patches around the bikini line, intimate areas, perianal and between legs.

Bikini/Intimate Area Discoloration: What causes it?

Whats causes pigmentation around the intimate areaS? This varies from person to person as there’s various reasons for skin darkening or discolouration around the bikini area. Some causes may be a result from age, genetics, friction etc.



intimate area discolouration may be caused by friction, which contributes to hyperpigmentation. Some of the causes may be:

  • Tight clothing
  • Restive garments
  • Regular skin rubbing
  • Exercise
  • Sex

Everyday activities can produce excess amounts of keratin, which also contains melanin. The overproduction of these elements can, in turn, cause darkening or discoloration of the skin.


As we all know, our bodies change as we age. Especially in the pubic area, the skin’s elasticity and thickness can change over time. As skin’s thickness reduces and fatty tissues become thinner, pigmentation occurs, and the areas can darken as a result.


One of the most common reasons for skin discolouration in the pubic area is a hormonal imbalance or even just increased hormone production. Estrogen plays a main role here, as excess or sudden rise in the production of the hormone also creates melanin production.

Genetic Conditions

If you’ve ever wondered, “Why is my private area black?” the culprit could be PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome. Many women with PCOS experience a presence of dark patches around the vaginal or pubic areas. PCOS causes excessive production of androgen, a male sex hormone, which can cause a change in the colour of the pubic area.

Waxing & shaving

One of the most common reasons for hyperpigmentation around the bikini area is hair removal. Hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving and epilator techniques may cause skin darkening in these areas. Many clients notice pigmentation over time due to this.

Does Shaving Darken the Pubic Area?

Shaving results in ingrown hairs, irritation and razor burns. Regular shaving causes sensitive skin due to exfoliation of the pubic area, which leaves the area prone to friction and rubbing, which results in dark patches.

1. Laser Hair Removal

One of the BEST alternatives to waxing and shaving is laser hair removal. 

Laser hair removal does what waxing and shaving cannot – it penetrates the skin to destroy the follicle from the root and permanently reduces hair growth. It provides a far more ‘permanent’ hair removal solution than waxing or shaving. Laser hair removal London offerings help prevent in-grown hairs and sensitive skin caused by waxing and shaving and help rejuvenate and improve skin texture.
