#1 Chemical Peel That Treats
$350 Reg. First Time Client $250
For many people, hyperpigmentation and dark underarms can be a source of embarrassment, and your patients may feel a lack of confidence and self-esteem because of it. Underarm hyperpigmentation is a common occurrence for many patients, but much more common in darker Fitzpatricks and ethnicities, such as Hispanic and African Americans.
In some cases, underarm discoloration is due to a skin condition called “acanthosis nigricans.” This condition can cause dark, velvety patches in body folds and creases. Acanthosis nigricans can affect healthy people, or it can be associated with certain medical conditions. Additionally, factors such as genetics, improper hair removal, chemical-laden deodorants, fragrances, and loss of elasticity can also be culprits to unwanted underarm discoloration.
How is it treated?
While it's cooler outside, winter is the perfect season to treat underarm hyperpigmentation with VI Peel Precision Plus.
