Intimate Lightening in Manchester and Cheshire

Pigmentation or darkening of the intimate areas such as under arms, external genitals, groin and perianal area, nipple and areola can have negative impact on relationship and self esteem. We offer medical grade intimate lightening in Manchester & Cheshire at CLNQ. Demand for these procedures has grown even more in popularity since hair removal and permanent laser hair removal of intimate areas has become more common. This treatment around the buttock area is commonly referred to as 'anal bleaching' and a common concern.

What Causes Pigmentation In The Intimate Areas?

Inimate hyperpigmatation is due to over production of melanin that involves the darkening around the anal and external genital areas. The melanocyte activity is higher is these areas. There are 20% more pigment producing cells, melanocyte, in the genital area compared to the face. The main causes include:


The ageing process takes place in the genital and perineal areas similar to the rest of the body. Reduced elastin and collagen production causes. Loss of elasticity and change of colour of these areas.

Genetic predisposition

It has higher prevalence in darker skin colours.

Hormonal changes

Fluctuating oestrogen levels are associated with pigmentation. Increased oestrogen levels present with contraceptive pills and HRT can stimulate activity of tyrosinase enzyme that leads to production of melanin.

Body care habits

Waxing, shaving and other forms of hair removal can cause abrasion to skin surface which leads to inflammation which results is melanocyte activity and melanin production.


Tight pants and underwear which rubs against inner thighs creating friction can also effect the skin by thickening and change of colour.


High sugar diets, oestrogen is also present in some foods.
