Bleaching of the anus

Bleaching of the anus is a treatment that has very quickly become immensely popular, both for men and women. A lot of people dislike it when the skin around the anus is not even and therefore would like to have it corrected.

How is the anus bleached?

Praktijk Gabriels works with LiteScan. This is a fractionated CO2-laser. The laser reduces the pigmentation in the skin so that the area around the anus becomes lighter. In addition, it improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin. This form of treatment is also used in dermatology to lighten the skin on the face.

Before starting the treatment, the skin is numbed with a cream. More than one treatment may be needed, depending on the condition of the skin. A treatment takes about 15 minutes. Because the skin continues to age, repeat treatments will be necessary over time; on average, once every one to two years.

What are the advantages of bleaching the anus?

  • Less pigmentation.

  • Improved firmness and a lighter skin.

  • LiteScan is a safe laser treatment.

The colour of the skin around the anus is darker because it contains more pigment. Should you not like this,
you can choose to have the skin bleached, which will make the skin lighter. There is no medical reason for the bleaching of the anus.


Before you can have your treatment done, you will meet with our cosmetic gynaecologist, Drs. Joke Haartsen. You can explain what is bothering you and what your wishes are during this consultation.
