Here at Juventus Cosmetic Surgery, we work with the CANDELA CO2 Laser treatment.
The CO2 Laser treatment is a procedure that not only can be used to enhance the appearance of wrinkles, scars and dark spots on your face; it also can be used in your intimate area to treat dryness, pain, loss of elasticity and hyperpigmentation.
This laser treatment is the perfect solution for Hyperpigmentation, as it causes less irritation than traditional chemical bleaching. The procedure only takes 30 minutes to remove the melanin from the desired area. Depending on the amount of pigment in your skin and the desired result, you would need between 1 or 2 sessions.
After the procedure you’ll need to take special care of the area, keeping it as clean as possibles and refraining from sex for at least three days after the treatment.
