Underarm Hair Removal and Lightening Made Simple in Toronto

In addition to hair removal, a popular ask for the underarm area is removing skin darkening in that area.

Underarm skin is quite sensitive, in fact, it’s delicate. It is why it is becoming more and more common to get laser hair removal in that area. The underarms are subjected to a lot of skin irritation due to razors, deodorants and even clothes rubbing on them, not airing them, etc. Because of the irritation a lot of hyperpigmentation may occur in the area. That is why the underarm area appears darker over time. 

Lightening the Underarm area

Limit the skin irritation in this area, first and foremost. Stop shaving in the area, don’t use harsh chemicals, and opt to provide some air through wearing sleeveless at home if possible.

After that, it’s best to seek professional help for the hyperpigmentation. Anything you do incorrectly could irritate the area again further, always trust a professional with professional-grade laser equipment. 

Different types of increased pigmentation require different lightening treatments.

Laser Treatments

At Magic Laser and Aesthetics, we use the GentleMAX Pro.

This offers long pulsed laser light delivery that closely matches the Thermal Relaxation Time (TRT) of melanocytes. By heating up these cell in benign pigmented lesions, you can bright about thermal damage to these lesions, and cells. Thus, removing the hyperpigmentation.

The skin appears smoother and much lighter as a result. 

Like chemical peels, microdermabrasion aims to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells. Except instead of using chemicals, it uses fine sand particles or a diamond-tipped wand.

The top layer of skin is where most of your hyperpigmentation resides. By gently removing it, the body naturally begins producing fresh, new skin. The idea is that this new skin will not be hyperpigmented, since it is not as irritated as the layers of dead skin being removed.
