Constant shaving and plucking can eventually backfire on your underarms, causing darkness, thicker hair and uneven texture. Thankfully, you don't have to stick to that routine for long because we've got a few alternatives that'll give you the hair-free and even-toned pits you've always wanted. Keep scrolling for a curated list!
Which under hair removal treatment is the best for me?
You have tons of options when it comes to getting rid of hair growth in this area. Whethet you want a more temporary or permanent fix, here are our recommendations for underarm hair removal and their prices:
1. FACIAL CARE CENTRE Laserlight Soprano (P15,000-P20,000)
A virtually painless laser treatment that inhibits the growth of underarm hair. It takes around six to eight treatments for all unwanted hair to be removed, but it will definitely be worth it!
2. FLAWLESS Underarm Laser Hair Removal (P3500/session)
At P3500 per session, this treatment uses laser light to destroy hair follicles on your underarms to prevent further hair growth.
3. STRIP Underarm Premium Wax (P898/session)
If lasers aren't your thing, waxing is a great alternative that'll save you weeks of shaving.
4. DERMCARE IPL Laser Hair Removal (price available upon request)
IPL or Intense Pulse Light hits the hair follicles at the root with filtered light. Like most lasers, this slows down hair growth and should completely stop it after a few sessions.
What are underarm lightening treatments that are worth the price?
A history of plucking, waxing, or using deodorants incompatible with your skin are the usually suspects for darkening. Thankfully, there are treatments that specifically target pigmentation to whiten the underarms, so you can maintain even-toned and smooth pits moving forward. Here are a few that celebs love:
1. BELO Angel Whitening Laser (price available upon request, tel.no. +632 819 2356)
We talked about this treatment before for lightening dark circles, but did you know that it works for underarms, too? This treatment targets melanin deposit in order to help lighten the skin as well as reduce chicken skin.
2. SKIN STATION Intensive Underarm Whitening (P7000/five sessions)
A combination of exfoliating treatment that uses glycolic acid, diamond peel and a lightening essence for more even-toned underarms.
3. THE AIVEE CLINIC Pico Englighten (P10,000/session)
A unique dual wavelength and dual pulse duration laser that targets skin pigmentation issues. This one is pretty powerful, since it can actually be used to remove tattoos!
4. LET'S FACE IT Underarm Bleaching With Scrub (P4040/eight sessions)
Give your underarms a spa day with a round of exfoliation and a whitening treatment. Try this if your skin isn't sensitive and can withstand the exfoliation!
