Dark Underarms and Neck Treatments

We often see or experience this common problem but we rarely question it. People who suffer from this condition have no obvious discomfort and are usually unaffected by it.

It is common to think that dark underam skin is due to the accumulation of dirt or dead skin. This is infact a myth. Dark underam skin could be an indicator of serious underlying issues like excess insulin, pre-diabetes, or other hormonal and nutritional issues. Commonly used skin lightening creams alone cannot be used to resolve this problem.

We at MySkinCare.in can help you choose effective products from our collection of selected products for dark underarms, neck & skin folds.

We always focus on targeting the root causes of the problem for you. From correcting one’s metabolism to supplementing with nutrients responsible for causing the problem. We use simple but effective agents like alpha lipoic acid, metformin , micronutrient and herbomineral supplements that naturally enhance the body's Insulin Sensitivity.

Specifically formulated preparations for application on the dark folds are also available, which are effective yet safe for these sensitive areas.

Along with the dark folds many patients tend to get skin tags too. These are different from infectious warts, even though they look similar. We can connect you with an affiliated dermatologist near you for skin tag removal treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

AREN'T THE DARK UNDERARMS DUE TO SWEAT, DIRT AND DEAD SKIN ACCUMULATION?

No, the dark folds are not due to these factors. It is generally due to thickening of the epidermal layer of skin. And in some cases the scrubbing and excess rubbing may only cause more damage to the skin.

WHAT REALLY CAUSES THE THICKENING AND IN TURN, THE DARKNESS?

The thickening and the darkness of the skin is caused due to an excess of insulin secretion but in a few cases may be genetic and benign. Excess Insulin thickens the area due to growth factors like Insulin. They also sometimes cause warty growths of skin on the folds called skin tags. These growths are different from infective warts, by not being infectious.

IF EXCESS INSULIN SECRETION CAUSES DARKENING OF FOLDS, HOW CAN WE BALANCE IT?

The excess insulin secretion is generally due to a high carbohydrate diet and poor lifestyle choices, weight gain etc. Excess Insulin is sometimes associated with nutritional imbalances, like low vitamin B12, D3 and some other micronutrient deficiencies. There are many medicines, foods and supplements, which are used as insulin sensitizers for our body. One such medicine is Metformin. Very good results are visible when such products are used judiciously and in supervision.

METFORMIN AND INSULIN SENSITIZERS ARE USED FOR DIABETES, IS IT NOT A BAD IDEA TO TAKE SUCH MEDICATION WHEN I AM NOT A DIABETIC?

Taking medication for insulin resistance, despite not being a diabetic, may be an excellent idea especially if you are insulin resistant. Such treatments are proven to reduce your chances of getting diabetes and other metabolic problems later in life. Not only that, along with better skin, and lightening of the folds you may experience added benefits of weight loss and metabolic balance. We must remember to take such medication under professional supervision only.

DO LASER THERAPY AND PEELS HELP? OR SKIN LIGHTENING CREAMS?

Laser therapy and peels do help to some extent, but need expertise in handling them. Since the problem is internal, the solution should also be focused on tackling the root cause.

There are a host of products, supplements and natural foods that may help you. We at MySkinCare.in will guide you all the way.
