Frequently Asked Questions

Skin Lightening/Brightening/Bleaching

What is skin lightening?

Skin lightening, or intimate skin bleaching at a Salem, Oregon beauty salon, is a treatment of brightening and lightening the skin in anal, genital, and other intimate areas like inner thigh and underarms. This treatment is also know as Anal Bleaching, Intimate Skin Bleaching, and Skin Whitening.


Who can you use these products?

Skin lightening, or intimate skin bleaching at a Salem beauty salon, is a skin treatment for men and women and all skin types.  The South Beach Skin Solutions lightening system I use in my Salem beauty salon is formulated to be used on even the most sensitive skin and can be used anywhere on the body. Whether you wax, shave, laser, or are all natural, skin lightening will work for you!


Does it hurt?  

No, with the South Beach Skin Solutions system there is no stinging, burning, or unpleasant smell.


Where can I use these products?

The lightening system I use in my Salem beauty salon can we be used anywhere on the body. The most common areas are the genitals ("anal bleaching"), inner thighs, underarms, and bikini. It will also work on any dark pigmented skin.


Is skin lightening safe?

The South Beach Skin Solutions lightening system is an all natural skin lightening system that uses bearberry root and licorice root. It does NOT contain hydroquinone, Kojic  acid, mercury, or steroids.  This means that the skin bleaching system used will never hypo-lighten or hypo-piment your skin.


Can I get skin lightening if I'm pregnant?

Although all these products have been tested and are for sensitive skin, pregnancy may lead to more hyper-pigmentation.  I prefer you wait until after pregnancy to start lightening your skin.


How long will it take to see results? 

You will immediately see a shade lighter in your skin tone and with proper use, most people will see their desired intimate skin bleaching and skin treatment results in just 5 - 6 sessions at a Salem, Oregon beauty salon when both home care system is being used in conjunction with intimate skin bleaching being done in studio. However, reaching desired results depends on the cause and severity of the hyperpigmentation.  Scars and burn marks typically show results quickly, while hormonal issues may take longer.


Can I get skin lightening after waxing?

Yes, after waxing is the best time to have your skin lightened. All your follicles are open, which helps the product penetrate the layers of skin for better results.
