Underarm skincare regime has never been something I gave much thought about. I probably did nothing to really take care of them , well other than the usual scrubbing or shaving them quick in the shower and that's about it.
Coincidentally I was invited by Bionn to try their new underarms whitening treatment on the same day after I posted the below photo of my signature "sniff armpit" pose on my
instagram (adelinelittlesuns) :p
I didn't have much problems with my underarms but I decided that I want to find out more about underarms whitening since I'm one who loves wearing sleeveless tops especially in this ridiculously hot tropical island of ours.
There is nothing to worry if you are one of those women who suffer from underarms discoloration because it is neither contagious nor an incurable medical condition.
Some of the contributing factors for dark underarms
- Genetics, some people are more prone to developing them
- Shaving or rubbing from tight clothing that cause friction
- Reaction to deodorant or harsh skincare product
- Taking androgen-based contraceptive pills
We women are so lucky because the market has so many beauty products and treatments that can easily solve this issue. So if you're looking for a fast and effective way to brighten your underarms, read on as now I'm going to walk you through the steps of the new
Underarms Whitening Treatment from Bionn.
Step 1 : After cleansing , the Die-Peel machine is used to remove layers of dead skin cells accumulated at the top layer of the epidermis. The pen-like instrument of the Dia-Peel has an abrasive diamond tip that loosens the dirt and debris while the wand's suction component vacuums them away.
After this first step is completed, the surface of the underarms became smoother, revealing the "baby skin" layer underneath. This is to prepare for the next important step of the whitening treatment.
Step 2 : DPL Technology from the Colour Light Laser machine is then used to shoot 500nm to 1200nm intense impulses of non-coherent light that produce high outbursts of broad spectrum to the skin surface.
This laser targets the melanin under the arms,clears away stubble and follicles and also to refine the skin, resulting it to be at least a shade lighter.
Step 3 : Next, a cold antiseptic gel is applied on and rolled over with a cooling applicator shown below. This is to provide immediate relief , as well as anti-inflammatory and soothing effect to the skin right after the laser treatment.
Step 4 : Lastly, a serum mask that contains brightening enzymes is brushed onto the underarms to further lighten and nourish the skin.
Seriously, this is the first time in my life that I've a mask applied on my armpits.
The entire Underarms Whitening session took about 45 minutes to complete and it's totally safe, fast and painless (no numbing cream needed). The result (one shade lighter) is immediately visible from the first session and likely to improve further after more sessions.
Bionn Singapore is now having an irresistible offer of $52 for TWO sessions so call 61000663 now to book your slot if you want to achieve fairer ,radiant and more even-toned underarms.
Now I guess I should end this post with a selfie of myself and my happy armpit that has been so blessed to have gone through this pampering session with me.
