When it comes to the tricky world of underarms, we’re almost always either looking for fuss-free ways to get rid of hair or searching for solutions to brighten our armpits.

Often, the two come hand in hand: if we’re scraping a razor blade against our skin every night, why wouldn’t our skin get irritated or become darker over time?

There are many other reasons for a darkening of the underarms like – in rarer cases – a bacterial infection, irritation from chemical products like deodorant, or, simply, because it’s in the genes. Nothing wrong with having darker armpits most of the time, but brighter underarms are certainly great for tank tops, beach days, and summer dresses.

If fairer underarms are what you need for a confidence boost, then we’ve got your back. Check out the best underarm whitening treatments in Singapore, including laser therapies and chemical peels!

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic

underarm whitening singapore

Sozo Aesthetic Clinic is a medical aesthetics clinic in Singapore that offers several solutions for your dark underarms, including Pico Laser Treatment and over-the-counter or prescription underarm whitening creams.

The Pico Laser Treatment sends high-energy laser beams to the skin in extra-short pulses, which means that more shots can be directed at the skin in the same duration compared to other traditional laser treatments.

This technology effectively lightens the underarms and removes stubborn pigmentation that other laser technologies might not be able to fade.

Doctors at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic will determine the cause of pigmentation in your armpits before customising an underarm whitening treatment that will be suitable and effective for you.

Pico Laser Treatment is priced starting from S$180.

underarm whitening singapore

A French aesthetics clinic, Estheclinic has over 20 years of experience and four outlets in Singapore at Tanjong Pagar, East Coast, Holland Village, and Serangoon Gardens – another two in Hong Kong.

The clinic’s Glow-to-Go Body Brightening Treatment started off as a treatment for the face (the Glow-to-Go Face Rejuvenation) before expanding as a service that lightens other parts of the body such as the underarms – thanks to proven brighter, glowing skin results.

Using IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology, Estheclinic’s underarm whitening treatment not only disperses pigmentation but also stimulates collagen production for more youthful-looking skin.

IPL directs high-intensity pulses of light to the skin’s dermis, heating the dark pigments and breaking them down. The heat also enhances the formation of collagen, which is what makes the skin firmer and tighter than before.

It also tightens and tones the skin, so your underarms look their best by the end of the treatment.

Customers often choose to couple this underarm whitening treatment with the clinic’s SHR (Super Hair Removal) Laser Removal service, which directs low-energy light pulses at a higher frequency to remove hairs safely.

Only Aesthetics

underarm whitening singapore

Instead of using laser technology to lighten dark underarms, Only Aesthetics applies a topical “mask” to the armpits and lets it set before wiping it off. The result is underarms that are fairer and smoother too.

That’s right, the clinic promises that its Underarm Whitening Treatment targets pesky bumps and rough skin that might be the result of shaving, which means you’ll get to walk out feeling more comfortable with lighter, smoother underarms.

The Underarms Whitening Treatment has a first trial price of S$138 (both underarms included). Check out this deal here.

Cutis Medical Laser Clinic

underarm whitening singapore

Even though Cutis Medical Laser Clinic is an aesthetic laser clinic in Singapore that offers a range of FDA-cleared laser solutions, its underarm whitening treatment doesn’t rely on laser technology.

Rather, the Pink Intimate System is a chemical peel treatment that uses ingredients like retinol, kojic acid, and vitamin B12 to lighten and tighten the skin, at the same time, nourishing it.

This treatment is so gentle on the skin that it can be used on other intimate areas such as the labia majora (the outer folds of skin at the vaginal opening) and the areola.

Address: 9 Scotts Road Pacific Plaza, Scotts Medical Center, #08-07, Singapore 228210
Opening hours: 10am – 8pm (Mon to Fri) | 9am – 4pm (Sat) | Closed on Sun

O Medical Clinic

underarm whitening singapore

If you’re afraid of the zapping of laser beams, consider O Medical Clinic’s underarm whitening treatment, which uses a custom chemical peel blend to lighten your delicate armpit area and target your specific skin concerns.

During the treatment, the esthetician uses a brush to gently apply the peel onto the underarms, and the final step is a thick mask, which helps to soothe and nourish the skin.

Although customers can expect to see brightening results immediately after one session, their underarms will appear lighter after several days. You’ll see more obvious effects when you go for more sessions as well.

Customers also often pair the underarm whitening treatment with either Laser Hair Removal or IPL Hair Removal services, available at the clinic!

Edwin Lim Medical Aesthetic

underarm whitening singapore

Edwin Lim Medical Aesthetic clinic in Singapore provides a range of treatments for acne scarring, anti-ageing, and hyperpigmentation.

The doctors at this medical aesthetic clinic will first determine the cause of your dark underarms before advising you on the best treatment options to achieve brighter skin. Available at the clinic are two underarm whitening solutions, the Spectra Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser and the PICO Laser, both of which are highly effective in removing stubborn hyperpigmentation.

The Spectra Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser directs a specific wavelength of light onto the skin to be absorbed by the melanin pigments. Once absorbed, the pigments are shattered into microparticles, which are removed from the body naturally.

The PICO Laser, again, sends laser light to the skin in ultra-short pulses, which prevents the skin from heating up and causing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

APAX Medical & Aesthetics Clinic

underarm whitening singapore

APAX Medical & Aesthetics Clinic is led by Dr Moses Ng, an elected member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery with over 15 years of experience in laser surgery.

With the doctor’s speciality in laser treatments, the medical aesthetic clinic offers two types of underarm whitening treatments: topical lightening creams and laser therapies.

The former targets pigmentation at the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, whereas the latter fades dark pigments in the deeper skin layer, the dermis. During the consultation, doctors also advise patients on whether the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser or PICO Laser is the better option for them.

underarm whitening singapore

IBHSKIN is a salon that’s focused on, well, skin. Regardless of whether you’re visiting for a facial treatment, hair removal, or underarm whitening, you know that your skin will come first and be in good hands.

The clinic’s signature OptimBright Underarm Whitening treatment is almost like a glow-giving facial, only, for your underarms. The treatment begins with cleansing and exfoliation to gently lift dead skin cells, and then the application of a cool gel to prepare the skin for the OPT (Optimal Pulse Technology).

Each pulse of light penetrates the tissue and destroys pigmentation, all whilst leaving the surrounding tissue healthy and unharmed. The esthetician presses the OPT device firmly against the underarms to zap at dark pigments and, once that’s done, applies a thick multivitamin mask to the armpits.

The mask further lightens pigmentation and even firms skin so that you see fewer fine lines or wrinkles on your pits by the end of the session.

IBHSKIN OptimBright Underarm Whitening treatment is priced at S$49 instead of S$340. Book here.

Address: 422 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3, #01-2532, Singapore 560422

The Clifford Clinic

underarm whitening singapore

Not all underarm whitening treatments that use PICO lasers are equal, and The Clifford Clinic’s one is set apart because it makes use of the Picocare 450 – a technology that stimulates collagen production in addition to lightening skin.

How it works is that specific wavelengths of light are directed onto the skin, heating up the areas of concern and dispersing the dark pigments within. When this happens, tiny bubbles are formed in the skin’s tissue and, as the skin heals, the bubbles are filled with collagen, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

If a laser underarm whitening treatment isn’t what your armpits need, doctors at The Clifford Clinic may also recommend chemical peels to lift dead skin cells and reveal fresh, bright skin underneath!

The PICO Laser Treatment is priced between S$250 to S$1000 per session. Find out more about treatment here.

Address: 50 Raffles Place, Singapore Land Tower, #01-01, Singapore 048623 (Exit B from Raffles MRT)

Veritas Medical Aesthetics

underarm whitening singapore

Pigmentation at the underarms can occur at the outermost epidermal or deeper dermal layer of the skin, which is why Veritas Medical Aesthetics uses a combination of lasers to reach both and brighten underarms effectively.

The medical aesthetics clinic calls one of their underarm whitening methods the BLEND Laser Protocol, which combines non-ablative lasers according to each individual’s skin type and needs.

There’s also the PERFECT Skin Resurfacing treatment – this one uses a laser beam, divided into microscopic treatment areas, to target the skin one fraction at a time – and Fotona V3 Redness Laser, which lets you bid redness goodbye.
