Anal bleaching is more common now than ever for people to groom their intimate areas, and this makes the difference in skin color much more apparent, as women and men become more aware and more comfortable with their bodies.
Anal bleaching isn’t just something porn stars and Bridesmaids do. More and more women are whitening back there. But MDs say, despite claims to the contrary, it might not be totally safe.
Spas anal lightening
While some spas offer anal lightening, it can be dangerous if the technician isn’t trained properly, and you can never guarantee the cleanliness of the facilities. Dirty spas and unexperienced technicians who offer anal bleaching services can cause herpes, scarring, and even infection. Since the risks of getting your ass bleached in a spa are so high, the demand for anal whitening treatments is off the charts – and is predicted to grow even more this year.
