Laser armpit whitening is a solution to excess skin pigmentation in the upper arm crease. The darkness of the area, although it does not cause any other effect, can be a source of anxiety for many people who will make an effort to hide it.
It is not the only area of the body where this dark color can appear. Hyperpigmentation of the skin is also common in the bikini area, so we will tell you what it is due to, what advice can be followed to whiten it and why laser treatment is effective.
Causes of dark underarms
Darkening of the skin can be due to multiple causes. We review the most common.
Bad hair removal habits
Poor hair removal is the most common cause of armpit hyperpigmentation. We refer to the pulling methods, such as hair removal with depilatory creams or razor blades.
With this type of method, the skin is irritated and melanin cells are activated that explain the darkness of the area. The process takes place in other parts of the body, but it is most visible in the folds: armpits, thighs and groin. And it is that the rubbing of the skin also contributes to hyperpigmentation.
Even though this effect does not occur, the blade of a razor blade cuts on the surface of the skin. This causes the hair to appear thicker and darker when it grows back, so this type of hair removal is not recommended on any area of the body. In fact, women avoid it at all costs in places as visible as the face.
It is a skin disorder characterized by the darkening of certain areas, but especially in the folds and furrows. In fact, it is also possible that the texture of the skin changes and it thickens. The most affected areas are the armpits, the groin and the neck.
These changes are common in people with diabetes or obesity. There is no specific treatment, but the one that treats the disease they suffer from and that can return part of the natural color and texture to the skin.
In this case, more than an armpit whitening treatment, it is advisable to put yourself in the hands of a specialist who will issue a complete and specific diagnosis.
Is laser armpit whitening effective?
Laser hair removal is not only an effective method of hair removal, but it is respectful of your skin. It will free you from suffering the undesirable effects of other methods, such as irritations, redness or even small wounds and burns.
But, in addition to removing hair, the laser is used to treat the skin. The dermis recovers its natural color and properties such as elasticity and firmness, which will have a positive impact on the perception you have of yourself and your self-esteem. Do not hesitate to choose those treatments that make you feel good.
