Why do we get darker under arm area?

The skin under the arms is typically darker than the surrounding skin. This can be due to several factors, including genetics, friction, and the accumulation of dead skin cells. In some cases, dark underarm skin may indicate an underlying medical condition, such as acanthosis nigricans or Addison’s disease. Those concerned about dark underarm skin should contact us for an evaluation. Treatment options will vary depending on the cause of the darkness and may include topical lighteners, exfoliants, lasers, and prescription medications.

Any skin irritation may result in overexpression of melanin synthesis in the skin. This condition is referred to as Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may occur due to atopic eczema, recurrent friction, burns, skin infections, shaving and waxing. PIH is more prevalent in those with darker complexions. Melanin deposition may be superficial or deep in the skin, which explains why over-the-counter lightening lotions may be ineffective.

Certain skin care products, such as deodorants, may be overly harsh on the skin, resulting in underarm pigmentation. According to one research, deodorant fragrances are a primary cause of allergic contact dermatitis.

underarm whitening with laser

With so many safe treatments for pigmentation today, you do not have to worry about living with any blemish. Treatments like lasers, hydroquinone, and HydraFacial are great ways to whiten unwanted dark spots and make them look as new as the day you were born.

Underarm Whitening Laser Treatment Using a Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser and a Fraxel laser system, deeper pigmentation in the skin may be efficiently targeted. This therapy is appropriate for situations with persistent underarm pigmentation that has not responded to topical lightening treatments and for combined epidermal and dermal pigmentation cases. The laser light degrades the melanin, which is then removed by your body’s natural healing process throughout a few treatment sessions.
There is no downtime involved with laser therapy for underarm whitening. Occasionally, minor burning and tingling sensations may occur. This often lasts a few minutes to a few hours after the treatment. Following the operation, you may resume regular activities and utilize our prescription lighting products.

Under arm whitening FAQs

Laser technology is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including damaged skin, age spots, dark arm pits, and lines. Also known as laser peels, they use intense light beams to remove undesired, damaged, or pigmented skin.
At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, we have multiple lasers for the underarm whitening procedure. These include the Spectra Q-Switch, Fraxel and Fotona laser.
Professional assistance Using the laser treatment puts you at a low risk as you will be under surveillance of our specially trained staff before, during and after treatments. If there is any form of complication, the doctors are always available to ensure you receive optimal results. Fast results While some whitening treatments take weeks, or even months, to show results, this is not the case with laser treatments. Laser treatments are quick and improvements can be seen right away in some situations.  Immediately after treatment, your skin will look smoother and brighter and progressively improve as time goes on. Positive results In most cases, people have reported great results at the end of their treatments. Not all skin whitening products are equally effective, just as not everyone’s skin reacts the same. However, laser whitening techniques are proven to be effective and at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, we offer a range of laser treatment for all skin types. With this in mind, we do our absolute best to give the best results.
HydraFacial is a non-surgical, safe and there are no risks except for irritation and prolonged redness in a few cases.
For some, it may take approximately 7 to 12 weeks and for others, it may be longer. Nonetheless, it depends on the strength used as well as a person’s body. You must use the treatment consistently for 3 months before you can ascertain its effectiveness.
While hydroquinone is great for treating pigmentation, some risks accompany the use of it. Such risks hardly occur, but they do in some instances. Side effects can include: Severe skin redness, burning or stinging Blisters or oozing of the skin Discoloration or darkening of the skin. Severe cracking or even bleeding of the skin. If you are using hydroquinone, it is important to remember to protect your skin from prolonged sun exposure to avoid many of these side effects.

Underarm lightening complete guide

What are the risks or side effects involved in laser treatment?

Though laser treatments help improve the look of your skin, some side effects are involved in using lasers. While they occur rarely, there is always the chance. They can include:
  • Prolonged redness of the skin after treatment
  • Swelling of the area
  • Blistering
  • Scaring
  • Cold sore reactivation
  • Scabbing
Generally, to avoid these side effects, make sure that your doctor (or injection-certified pharmacists) or medical aesthetician is well-trained. Also, before starting treatments, we recommend booking a consultation and potentially a test spot to ensure your skin reacts well to the laser. If you are open about any medical conditions or allergies related to laser treatments, many of these side effects can be avoided.

What is Microdermabrasion or HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment that uses a medical-grade diamond tip to remove layers of dead skin cells. Also, it encourages the production of new and underlying skin.

What is hydroquinone?

Also known as benzene-1 or quinol, hydroquinone is a skin lightener used in several skin whitening creams. This is because it reduces the production of melanin in your skin.

How much does an underarm whitening laser treatment cost?

Laser resurfacing and whitening treatment costs depend on the affected area, and the type of laser used, as there are many different types of lasers. At Albany Cosmetic Center, our laser treatments for underarm whitening range from $200-$400 per treatment. Clients may require multiple sessions to see optimal results. After the initial protocol is completed, maintenance treatments every 6 months are typically advised.

How much does underarm whitening cost with Hydrafacial??

As with most treatments, the cost depends on certain factors. These include how many HydraFacial treatments the client needs, the center the treatment is offered, and the professional administering the treatment. At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, a single Microdermabrasion treatment costs $250, while a package of 3 treatments costs $600.

Can hydroquinone be used for underarm whitening?

Hydroquinone is one of the best skin-lightening agents available. Because of this, it is safe to use on almost any body part. Before applying hydroquinone, you must ensure that the area is dry and take extra precautions to protect your skin from the sun when using it. Hydroquinone is very effective for removing dark spots in the underarm area.

Underarm Whitening

A study was designed to compare IPL and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) whitening efficacy for underarm whitening in 20 volunteers aged between 24 and 34 who had five biweekly treatments. The complexion was assessed using Fitzpatrick skin-type paper and photos. Results suggested that AHA and IPL underarm whitening treatments improved skin tone and texture. AHA therapy improved skin tone by 65 percent for one level and 35 percent for two levels. Meanwhile, IPL therapy enhanced skin tone by 30% for one level and 70% for two levels. AHA and IPL improved the skin’s smoothness by 5 percent and 45 percent, respectively. AHA therapy resulted in a 30% improvement in skin colour and a 30% reduction in skin smoothness after one month, but IPL treatment resulted in no change in skin colour or smoothness.
Consequently, the degrees of whiteness and smoothness of IPL were 85 percent and 30 percent greater than AHA’s, respectively. For the examination of underarm irritation, redness, dryness, peeling, burning, and itching were identified as treatment-related symptoms. IPL therapy has fewer adverse effects than AHA treatment.
Moreover, the examination of treatment satisfaction revealed that participants in this study are 15% more satisfied with IPL than AHA.

General tips on how to brighten dark armpits

This is a question worth a million dollars, no? It would be best to address certain behaviours to tone your underarms equally with the rest of your body. A few changes to your lifestyle will go a long way toward achieving lighter underarms. Here is a few of them:

Don’t shave

Since shaving abrasions are one of the leading causes of dark underarms, it is reasonable to stop shaving your underarms. It does not imply that you will begin to develop underarm hairs if you stop shaving, but rather that you will turn to other hair removal methods, such as waxing. Some individuals may choose laser hair removal. One advantage of laser hair removal is that it may help you get a more radiant complexion.

Exfoliate

This one is similarly straightforward. Regular exfoliation can help you get lighter armpits by removing the top layer of dead skin. Apply a light exfoliating treatment and avoid rubbing your skin too vigorously since this may exacerbate the condition.

Change your deodorant or antiperspirant.

It is well knowledge that deodorants and antiperspirants irritate underarm skin, resulting in hyperpigmentation and other issues. Some of you may benefit simply by switching the brand of deodorant or antiperspirant you typically use. You may certainly give it a go to lighten underarm skin.

Manage the underlying medical condition

Certain medical disorders, such as African Nigricans, have dark armpits as one of their principal signs and consequences, and treating the illness should lighten your armpits. If you have dark armpits, Even with adequate skin care and cleansing, it is important to see a physician to rule out or address the underlying cause.

Wear relaxed clothing

Body-tight clothing causes friction in the armpit region, which eventually causes rashes and inflammation, resulting in skin darkening.
