In this blog we will cover why your underarms get dark and how to lighten your underarms.
While you’re likely paying close attention to the needs of your skin on your face, there’s one area of your body you may unknowingly be neglecting. When’s the last time you gave your armpits a little attention? The skin around this often-forgotten area is super sensitive, and taking proper care of it can be tricky if you’re not well versed in the dos and don’ts.
There are numerous potential causes for underarms becoming darker. Some main causes include skin irritation and abrasion caused by shaving and applying chemical deodorants/ antiperspirants as sweat ducts are clogged. Wearing tight clothes also will lead to skin friction and develop a thick skin and darkened pigmentation under the armpits. Actually, darker skin under the armpits can be genetic too.
In this blog we’re not only to speak about tips to lighten underarms but how to give some extra attention to this little body part.

Tips to Lighten Underarms #1 - Underarms Peeling
Now it’s time to answer the question we all are here for. Many studies have proven that chemical peeling can work wonders in brightening the underarms.
In just minutes after application, the acids start dissolving the dead skin cells that are causing dark pigmentation that followed by a lovely chain reaction. Eventually, the topmost skin layer sheds away.
The shedding of topmost skin cells sends a signal to living cells that are underneath to move up. This increases collagen production, hence producing more hyaluronic acid.
Our doctor here at Lumina Aesthetics Clinic uses deep peel or a medium peel for peeling underarms, based upon your skin condition. Most of the time a medium peel is enough to exfoliate the skin and remove additional melanocytes.
If you are suffering from diabetes or some thyroid issue, consult with your doctor right away because it can worsen the problem.

Botox to treat excessive underarm sweating
Tired of having to bring an extra shirt with you everywhere you go?
Excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) can really burden your life. Have no fear, we have the answer to ease your life with Botox injections therapy. At Lumina Aesthetics we can stop signals to your sweat glands for up to six months.
Tell-tale signs that you may have hyperhidrosis include:
- Frequently sweating through clothing
- Sweating for no apparent reason
- Inability to control sweat with antiperspirants (even prescription-strength products may not work)
How can Botox stop excessive sweating?
Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands. Essentially, the brain sends signals via nerves to sweat glands to produce more sweat than necessary to keep your temperature regulated. When injected into the armpits, Botox works by temporarily blocking these signals, so your glands don’t receive the message to sweat.
Following a Botox treatment, most patients sweat less than half as much as they did before and many say they stay dry throughout the day for the first time in their lives.
