Skin and Pore Tightening
ALISA uses yellow light (580-950nm) to blast collagen cells to boost production. It is ideal for treating dull skin appearance, textural damage such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and mature skin.
Removal of Redness and Brown Spots
On the other hand, ACLARA and ALIVIA use green light (535-950nm). ACLARA destroys excess melanin cells which are expelled from the body 2-3 weeks post treatment. This photofacial is best to lighten and clear light to dark pigmented lesions.
ALIVIA cauterizes superficial vessels. Once cauterized, the vessels dissolve back into the skin. The ALIVIA photofacial is the best choice to diminish redness and dissolve broken capillaries.

Why are my underarms and bikini-line discoloured and rough?
The appearance of skin discolouration in the underarm and pubic regionsare a common concern noted with Hair Removal clients. These dark patches may be accompanied by other symptoms such as irritation, rough texture, odour, or small growths.
It is important to properly diagnose the causes of your condition in order to understand the triggers and prepare a treatment plan for silky, even-toned skin.
Possible causes of skin discolouration
1| Health Factors
Although this may not be the most common cause, underlying health conditions and medications account for a large majority of the possibilities.
Acanthosis – a skin condition described as dark, velvety skin, in the groin, underarms, elbows, knees, neck, or groin area
Acromegaly – a condition that causes overproduction of human growth hormone
Cushing’s Syndrome – a condition caused by an excess production or exposure to cortisol
Human growth hormone
2| Genetic Influences
Hyperpigmentation or ‘dark patches’ are most prevalent in skin tones that naturally produce higher levels of melanin.
Melanin is the pigment produced by the skin cells that provides it with colour. The amount of melanin in the skin fluctuates with sun exposure and in cases of scarring. Because darker skin tones retain and produce more melanin, they are at higher risk of developing dark patches and scars.
The skin’s natural response to trauma is to repair itself in the affected area by producing fresh cells to replace the damaged cells.
Repeated friction over sensitive areas of the skin due to tight or abrasive fabricscan cause micro-trauma to the skin which in turn stimulates the repair process. The skin then forms an abundance of cells over the pressure sites giving way for the appearance of dark patches, or streaks in the skin.
4. | Shaving
Shaving the bikini line and underarms can be harsh on the sensitive skin covering these areas, especially considering these areas are often populated with fast growing hair that requires frequent shaves.
When the sharp blades of the razor glide along the skin, they make just enough contact with the skin to scrape away a thin sheet of dead skin. This can cause micro trauma to the skin, triggering the repair process which then draws pigment to the area.
Skin interaction with ingredients found in deodorant can often lead to discolouration. Aluminum compounds in deodorants keep the underarms dry by blocking the pores from excreting sweat and helps prevent odour by inhibiting the bacterial growth.
Although there are
many different contributors to this skin condition, there are also various
remedies that may provide relief. Stay tuned for Pt.2
IPL Phototherapy uses light energy to treat major skin conditions and permanently remove unwanted hair. It delivers pulses of UV light into the skin on areas of the face, neck, arms, hands, and legs. The depth of light penetration is measured according to the condition being treated.
With just a quick pulse of light we can diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries and remove unwanted facial and body hair.

ALISA (Skin Tightening/Rejuvenation)
Ideal for treating dull skin appearance, textural damage such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and mature skin.
The chemicals used in peels are acids that are derived from natural sources. A peel involves chemically removing the outermost layers of the skin which in return promotes exfoliation and cell turnover. Depending on the type of peels used they can help treat fine lines, textural issues, acne, scarring, redness and provide a fresher, healthier appearance to the skin.
Chemical peels can be done on any area of the body, most commonly the face, neck, chest, hands and back.
Peels range in strength and have amazing benefits, however, they contain powerful peeling agents and have the ability to really hurt someone if not properly administered. Through a a proper consultation, your professional service provider will educate you about the peel and the expected outcomes including post treatment instructions.
Different peels can be mixed together and are known as blended peels. They can also be mixed with other ingredients such as vitamin c, hylauronic acid and dead sea minerals to pack an extra punch and provide a variety of additional benefits.
Whether you’d like to use peels as an anti aging method, or have a clear skin goal, your service provider can create a treatment plan customized for you.
