Intimate Depigmentation: Reclaim Your Confidence and Comfort

Intimate Depigmentation ​

Intimate hyperpigmentation is a common concern and can very much negatively affect one’s self esteem and impact on quality of life. 

Darkening of the intimate area...​

Can be a result of a number of factors including:

  • Genetics​
  • Hormones, such as during pregnancy ​
  • Physical friction, from for example, rubbing with clothes​

What is the process of intimate depigmentation at Dr L'Art? ​

Our medical experts have carefully crafted a depigmenting protocol combining in clinic chemical peels and at home topical creams in order to depigment, brighten and maintain the results.

Which specific areas can be treated?​

  • The genito-perineal area​
  • The perianal area ​
  • The mons pubis ​
  • The inner thighs and groin ​


What is it?

It’s a topical treatment (applied to the skin) that combines one session in a doctor’s office with an in-home cosmetic treatment. The in-home treatment is key to obtaining the desired result.

How does it work?

dermamelan® intimate features an exclusive dual action mechanism to achieve a result that persists over time and avoids pigmentary rebound. On the one hand, it accelerates skin renewal and peeling, greatly lightening any existing spots. And on the other, its regulatory action acts on the source of the problem to avoid the appearance of new spots.

Is the treatment completely painless?

It is a process in which the skin is gradually renewed in a controlled way. During the initial phase and after the treatment in the clinic, the skin is red and may feel hot, but this sensation is mild and expected and disappears after 24-48 hours. During the at-home stage, minor peeling is normal and the area may feel sensitive at times. These effects clear up after applying the home products recommended by your specialist.

Is the treatment compatible with my usual activities?

Since the treatment is topical, it is not invasive and the manifestations associated with it do not prevent you from leading a normal life. However, you have to adapt your daily habits as needed to adhere to the home cosmetic treatment and avoid direct exposure to the sun.

When is the best time of year to have the treatment?

Since this is an area where direct sun exposure can be avoided, the treatment can be done at any time of year.

What are it's advantages when compared with other depigmentation treatments?

Other treatments, such as laser or peelings, have a corrective action on spots by removing the pigment that accumulates in the skin, but they do not avoid the reappearance of spots. dermamelan® intimate has a dual action – corrective and regulatory – to treat the root of the problem by controlling the overproduction of pigment to keep them from reappearing.
