Look into your closet; if there are no sleeveless & strappy outfits or swimwear, you are hiding something, your dark underarms. Smita Gautam of Skincity gives you the solution to this embarrassing problem.
More often than not, you are not quite sure about how and why it happened, it creeps up on you and before you know it, you feel helpless about how to get rid of it. The hype around quick fixes and ineffective solutions in the form of topical creams, deodorants, and bleaching agents, just delay finding the right and permanent solution.
WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?
It is important for you to understand what causes dark underarms and what you need to do to get rid of it permanently. There are three main causes of dark underarms:
- The first is a tendency for hyper pigmentation usually due to hormonal imbalance;
- The second is thick underarm hair growth, the associated problems and the wrong removal techniques used.
- The third is excessive sweating, the associated problems and ineffective solutions adopted;
Getting a clear diagnosis is important to finding the right solution to this problem. Dr. Niteen Dhepe, Medical director, Skin City says that hormonal imbalances and infections associated with the above- mentioned problems need to be addressed first following which, the latest available technologies, like Laser Skin lightening, can be done to get rid of the pigmentation. This method shows excellent results, not only in the under arms, but also in other hyper pigmented areas like the inner thighs, buttocks and other intimate areas.
He also wishes to impress upon those affected with this embarrassing condition, that shaving and waxing are redundant methods of hair removal. They cause ingrowths, folliculitis and other infections which further darken the underarms. Laser Hair reduction is the best method of hair removal, which will prevent and resolve these problems.
He further states that deodorants and anti-perspirants do more harm than good to people with Hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating; the chemicals in these products may react with the skin causing darkening. Besides, people with this condition are prone to bacterial infections, which worsen the body odour caused by sweating, hence causing terrible embarrassment and social ostracization of the affected person. There are several medical and minimally invasive surgical treatments available to rid you of this condition.
SkinCity has the largest range of lasers and treatments available to treat the causes of dark underarms thus resolving this problem and restoring your confidence.
