Dark Underarms

Book a Consultation


What Causes Dark Underarms?

Dark armpits are usually a result of an excess amount of pigment produced by your body.

Some of these causes include;

  • Acanthosis agricans (AD), a medical condition linked to obesity and diabetes
  • Chemical products such as deodorant or antiperspirants
  • Lack of exfoliation
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Shaving or waxing (which may cause PIH)
  • Excess progesterone and estrogen levels
"It is important to consult a doctor and avoid using at-home treatments that may cause your armpits to darken even more."


Underarm Lightening Treatments

At Veritas, we start all skin pigmentation treatments like armpit whitening with a proper medical examination. This is necessary to rule out skin diseases.

Due to the complexity of underarm whitening—deeper layers of pigmentation and poorer healing capability of our skin on the body than on the face–, it is necessary to get treated with proper equipment and an experienced medical professional.

A common mistake most make is to rely on a single pigmentation laser, such as the Q-switch Pico laser. While Pico laser can target pigmentation effectively, it can only do so for pigmentation limited to one layer of skin, resulting in unsatisfactory results and may lead to adverse side effects like hypopigmentation.

To permanently and effectively treat dark underarms, a combination of lasers is required.

Lasers for Underarm Whitening

BLEND is a proprietary combination of pigmentation lasers with no downtime.

A fractional laser treatment that targets all layers of the skin, one fraction at a time, similar to enhancing images pixel by pixel. This allows us to work on both the epidermal and dermal layer of the skin, effectively clearing the pigmentation.

Topical products may be prescribed for the underarms. These products are gentle yet effective at lightening pigmentation to avoid further darkening of the area from irritation.
