Repair. Restore. Rejuvenate.
The anus is a sensitive and susceptible region of the body. ANAL REJUVENATION® is a specialty service offered by our proctologist in Los Angeles, Dr. Murrell, with the goal of repairing any abnormalities and restoring your anal region to its original form.
What is an Anal Rejuvenation® Procedure?
The anus is one of part of the body which most people disregard when it comes to dermatological care. But despite the taboo surrounding it, it’s important to remember that it is a sensitive organ that requires medical and cosmetic attention.
Over time, due to age, genetics, ill health and use, the anal muscles stretch and lose their elasticity. When this happens, the sphincter muscles in the anus lose both their shape and their ability to function well.
This is where the ANAL REJUVENATION® procedure will work wonders. A procedure designed to spruce up the anus, the ANAL REJUVENATION® treatment will give your anal muscles back their elasticity, shape, and strength; allowing you to live a life of quality.
The process begins with a private consultation during which Dr. Murrell will take the time to understand your situation and tailor a rejuvenation program to fit your needs. Dr. Murrell’s main objective during this consultation is to ensure you understand the whole process and so in turn feel safe and comfortable in the entire ANAL REJUVENATION® procedure.
Through the ANAL REJUVENATION® procedure, any aberrations of the anal region due to colorectal conditions such as hemorrhoids, anal tags, polyps, skin folds or anal warts will be addressed. If required, your treatment plan may also include cosmetic procedures for tightening and re-strengthening of the anal sphincter.
Depending on the extent of reconstruction needed, an Anal Rejuvenation® procedure may include injections, infrared coagulation, or more traditional surgical techniques. These can be done in Dr. Murrell’s office or in his state-of-the-art surgery suite.
An ANAL REJUVENATION® treatment can help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with many rectal conditions, and most importantly help to restore your self-confidence.
Medical Conditions Necessitating an Anal Rejuvenation® Treatment
Abnormal lumps and bumps can sometimes form on the anus, requiring immediate medical attention. In some cases, these growths may be indicative of a deeper physiological condition like internal infections or cancer. Immediate treatment is the best way to put a stop to any illnesses that may have set in.
Dr. Murrell recommends the ANAL REJUVENATION® treatment for anyone who has experienced – anal warts, fissures, anal polyps, skin tags, loose skin folds, hemorrhoids, anal fistula, and irregularly shaped and colored bumps and lumps. The doctor also recommends this treatment for anyone who feels their anal muscles are stretched and inelastic due to intense sexual activity.
At our clinic, Dr. Murrell will first conduct a thorough check-up of your colorectal area and will advise you on the next course of action. He will create a personalized treatment plan to suit your requirements and will carry out the anal rejuvenation procedure.

Non-Invasive and Surgical Procedures
The ANAL REJUVENATION® procedure is designed to:
- Improve the appearance of your anus
- Tighten the sphincter muscles
- Remove abnormal growths on the anus
- Remove precancerous and cancerous cells
- Does not alter sexual performance or pleasure
To perform the ANAL REJUVENATION® treatment, the doctor will use either one or a combination of the following treatments:
A neuromuscular modulator, Botox when injected, is designed to stop the sphincter muscles from receiving and sending signals, thereby remaining static and tight. Any ‘looseness’ in the anus will be reduced drastically.
Using a laser probe, the doctor will focus the high-intensity laser light on any growths or loose skin and tissue on the anus. The laser allows doctors to treat deep inside the anal walls, ensuring comprehensive treatment.
Surgical resection of abnormal growths and surgical tightening or loosening of anal walls is also an option. Here, once the surgery is conducted, the doctor will reconstruct the anus to reduce scarring and injury. All sutures will be placed inside the anus, ensuring that they aren’t visible outside.
Dr. Murrell will use a topical numbing cream to numb the area being treated. This will ensure that the procedure is absolutely painless and comfortable. You may experience pain once the anesthesia wears off. However, the doctor will prescribe pain medication depending on how you fare post-treatment.
Minor bruising, swelling, and pain are common symptoms, but these will reduce a few days after the procedure. Patients may experience pain while relieving themselves for a few weeks after the treatment. Complete recovery will take between 2-3 months.
We understand that recovering from anal rejuvenation can be a delicate process. Here is a detailed guide to what you can expect during your recovery.
The initial 24-72 hours following anal rejuvenation should be focused on rest and recovery. You will likely experience a bit of pain and discomfort, which Dr. Murrell can help you to manage with a prescription for pain medication. It is imperative that you do not drive, operate heavy machinery, or perform strenuous tasks. It is also absolutely necessary that you refrain from consuming alcohol while your body recovers from the anal rejuvenation process.
Once the pain has subsided, you may switch to Tylenol or Ibuprofen for pain management. You should stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and take a mild laxative to assist your body during bowel movement. It is not uncommon for patients to not have a bowel movement in the initial days following your procedure.
Taking baths using Epsom salts during the first couple of weeks will assist not only in the management of your pain, but also help to relieve swelling and discomfort. It is important to listen to your body and not over do it during these initial weeks. Most patients are fully recovered approximately six to eight weeks following anal rejuvenation.
Exercise and Intercourse
You can return to light to moderate exercise one to two weeks following your procedure. As your body heals, you will be able to add more vigorous exercises to your routine, as long as you avoid any activities that directly involve contraction of the gluteal muscles.
Regarding intercourse, most patients are able to return to vaginal intercourse or topping within one to two weeks following anal rejuvenation. Masturbation may allow you to see if your body is ready for intercourse as reaching orgasm stimulates contraction of the pelvic floor muscles and can cause pain. Remember to take things slowly and listen to your body. It will let you know what you are ready for.

Anal bleaching is a procedure that is used in the ANAL REJUVENATION® procedure process when the individual wants to pay particular attention and care to the appearance of their anus. It is a cosmetic treatment that can help achieve beautiful results.
The pigmentation around the anus can become darker due to genes, aging, hormonal changes, pregnancy, etc. Anal bleaching is actually exactly what it sounds like. A bleaching solution is applied to your anus which then helps to lighten the color of the perianal skin. This would be done so that the pigmentation of this area of the body appears more uniform with all the surrounding areas. The degree of darkness to the skin will determine the number of times this process is needed.
During your consultation Dr. Murrell will outline the different treatment options available and identify the best treatment plan for you.
Anal Bleaching for a Natural and Healthy Look
Anal pigmentation and discoloration are common cosmetic concerns that many people experience. Factors like hormones, pregnancy, and age can worsen the pigmentation, making your anal muscles look aesthetically displeasing. Bleaching is a great way to return the anus to its original and youthful condition.
A skin-friendly bleaching solution will be applied to your anus to reduce the discoloration and pigmentation. A patch test will be conducted to see if the solution is compatible with your skin or not.
The anal bleaching treatment takes place over multiple sittings, depending upon the degree of pigmentation and discoloration you have. Once completed, you will be left with beautiful and natural-looking results.Learn More About Anal Bleaching
