What Is Anal Bleaching - Is Anus Bleaching Safe
Anal bleaching is the process of lightening the color of the skin around the anus . It is done for cosmetic purposes, to make the color of the anus more uniform with the surrounding area. Some treatments are applied in an office or salon by a cosmetic technician and others are sold as cream that can be applied at home.
The procedure was briefly shown in 2004 near the end of an episode Cosmetic Surgery Live .  One salon that performed the procedure received an increase in queries in 2005 attributed to an episode of Dr. 90210 on E! , when porn star Tabitha Stevens was filmed having her anus bleached.  It garnered several mentions in movies such as Brüno ,  and Bridesmaids ,  and in magazines.  
The treatment was apparently first offered in the US in California in 2005; it was reported to be available at the same time in Australia.  Spas outside of Hollywood were slow to begin offering it as a beauty treatment, with just one New York spa offering the service by 2007.  Creams are now sold for use at home,  and genital lightening is offered as a laser-based treatment in cosmetic surgery centers.

There are several methods to carry out the anal lightening process. The most common method is to simply use an at-home lotion or gel to target the darkened anal and genital area and gradually fade the darkened area over time. Most of the other methods that are used for skin lightening, like hydroquinone used to lighten skin and usually found in products marketed to darker skinned people to even out their skin tone,  and other popular methods like cryosurgery and laser lightening treatments, are also used for anal bleaching.

Many of these cosmetics contained ingredients that would irritate the sensitive anal area, creating temporary discomfort and even burning, scarring or incontinence.
