Private Area Lightening

Private areas such as underarm, genitals, thigh folds may appear hyperpigmented for a number of reasons. The damp environment may increase melanin deposition, giving rise to darker looking skin. Nonablative laser treatment with Q-switched Nd:Yag lasers can shatter melanosomes and lighten the darker skin appearance 


Double step treatment with a laser micro-peeling to remove excess dead skin cells followed by a second laser pass which transmits short pulse bursts of 1064nm laser energy through the skin works to target the deeper pigments. 


Laser Lightening is used to treat the underarms, genitals, buttock creases and inguinal thigh folds.
