This is counter-intuitive, maybe futile, and never tried it myself. (I use black matte paper as found in some page protectors.) If the bleed is obvious to naked eye, even with backing, the scanner bulb can only make it worse, being an intense, brilliant light.
I would try to find a way to reduce the intensity of that light, see what results. I don't know of any scan s/w or hardware trick that would do this, haven't looked. Next would be put a partly opaque sheet (eg page protector) in front of subject. Will reduce quality of scan, but in what way? If too much detail is lost, nothing gained, but eliminating some detail when the scanner is intent on capturing it all is the purpose. Other effects maybe fixed in editor. ?
