Underarm and Intimate Area Laser Whitening
What is Underarm and Intimate Area Laser Whitening?
Dark skin under your arms and in intimate areas can be an embarrassing condition, but there are several treatments that can alleviate the discoloration. Our Revlite Treatment is ideal for these areas and is easy, safe and chemical-free. It takes less than 20 minutes, with no smelly creams, daily maintenance, or peeling involved. Plus there’s no downtime, so you can go back to your usual activities right after!
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on how dark your skin in initially, and your response to the initial treatment. If your skin is only one or two shades darker, then only one treatment may be required, however most people that seek treatment for these areas have a larger difference in skin shades and require 5 to 10 treatments. Your doctor can advise you during the initial consultation.
Is It Painful?
At Dermamed Skin clinic, we use super cooled (-20 degrees) air which takes most of the pain away from the laser treatment and it is generally very well tolerated. If you wish, numbing cream may be applied 30 minutes beforehand or local anaesthetic may be injected by the doctor.
Does it work for other areas?
Yes, the Revlite is a Q switched laser that works specifically for pigmentation in unwanted areas. It is most often used for facial pigmentation (freckles, sun damaged pigmentation, melasma and more), hands and arms (“liver” spots), decolletage area (sun damage). It can also be used on intimate areas such as nipples and genital areas to lighten the skin there permanently.
