Are dark underarms making you feel self-conscious? Are you tired of wearing sleeved shirts all the time to hide your underarms? Luckily, there are various non-invasive skin color correction treatments readily available these days to whiten dark underarms. While you may be tempted to try home remedies to whiten your armpits, these pale in comparison to professional treatments from a licensed cosmetic clinic.

Not only are these home remedies less effective, but they could also take months—even a year—to see a noticeable difference. Why prolong the process when you can get a professional treatment with a more immediate result?

Home Remedies vs. Professional Skin Color Correction Treatment

If you’ve put up with dark underarms for so long, it might be safe to assume that you’ve done a bit of research on how to lighten the skin without going to a cosmetic clinic. On the Internet, you can find various proven and effective ways to lighten dark underarms. While these may have worked on others, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will work on you; primarily because we each have different skin types and conditions. Your body’s reaction to the natural remedies also plays a huge role in the success or failure of the DIY treatment.

You may have come across a few DIY suggestions like scrubbing the armpits with a thin slice of potato, or rubbing the area with lemon, cucumber, vinegar, or baking soda. You may have also heard of making a mask out of mashed apples and applying this on your armpit. The frustrating part about all of these home remedies is the time it takes for them to take effect. And most of the time, the results aren’t even as noticeable as a treatment professionally done.

With a skin color correction treatment from a licensed doctor, you can see visible results after just one treatment. Laser treatments and chemical peels are two effective ways for lightening dark underarms. These procedures are non-invasive and there is little to no downtime at all. The best part is that you won’t have to wait long before you can finally show off your perfect underarms.

Additionally, with a professional treatment, the doctor can determine the right approach and procedure for your case. During the initial consultation, the doctor may perform a test or two to determine your skin type and condition. He or she will also discuss with you in full detail the procedure recommended for your underarm issues.
