Your underarms should be the same colour as the rest of your skin. However, the skin in the armpits might sometimes darken. Dark underarms aren’t usually a sign of anything serious, but they can be embarrassing for some people, especially when it’s time to wear tank tops and swimsuits. Underarm whitening with laser lightens your underarm and boosts your self-esteem.

Underarm whitening treatment uses a combination of Fraxel laser and Spectra laser to resurface the skin and remove the pigmentation.

What Causes Underarm Pigmentation?

Pigmentation on the underarms limits ladies’ choice of clothing and negatively impacts their self-esteem. Most cases of underarm pigmentation are due to an inflammatory reaction such as a burn from sugar waxing or using an old razor blade. Genetic factors can also cause underarm pigmentation.

to achieve the best results we combine the Fraxel laser and the Spectra laser to achieve the best results. The Fraxel laser 1927 nm wavelength provides non-invasive skin resurfacing, and the spectra Q-Switch nanosecond laser breaks down melanin pigment particles.

What Is The Procedure Like?

We make the underarm whitening laser treatment more comfortable by applying freezing cream and forced-cold air. Moreover, we will provide the client with a special cream to prevent hyperpigmentation and help to soothe the area.
