What is it?

The main treatments are for lightening the underarms with lasers. These are: the Fotona Laser, the calibrated pulsed light and the CO2 Laser. In all these cases, the laser produces a controlled vaporization of the skin cells (epidermal), eliminating the pigments of the skin and promoting cell turnover. At the same time, the production and activation of collagen and elastin is stimulated, improving the texture and elasticity of the skin.


Underarm whitening treatments have multiple benefits:

  • They eliminate the darkening of the armpits, allowing you to wear any type of clothing without feeling uncomfortable showing this part of your body.
  • It can also be used on elbows, crotches and other areas of the body.
  • In addition to lightening the color of the treated skin, it improves the elasticity and texture of the skin.

How and for what?

The darkening of the armpits over the years is a cause of discomfort for some women. It may be due to the temporary hair removal techniques used, to the excessive use of deodorants, antiperspirants and perfumes, to excessive sweating accompanied by bad odor, or to hormonal disorders. In this way, laser treatments for underarm blemishes eliminate the blemished skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells. At the same time, the production and activation of collagen and elastin is stimulated, improving the texture and elasticity of the skin.


Laser underarm depigmentation treatments all have high success rates. It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months to see the full results of the treatment.
