Genital Bleaching Peel

  • 186 Accesses

Abstract

Patients with darkness in the genital area, without previous symptoms or diseases, but who do not feel comfortable with the appearance of the area, in general, don’t present a good clinical outcome with conventional medical procedures already published in the literature. In this chapter, we show our clinical experience combining chemical peel and Q-switched Nd/Yag laser.
