If there is one woman who can tell us how to achieve flawless underarms, it is celeb dermatologist, Dr. Vicki Belo. Celebrity endorsers aside (and there are many), all you have to do is to take a peek at her Belo clinics to know she's trusted by everyone.
So what does it take to have the perfect kili-kili? Dr. Belo provides the effective remedies (and a Belo procedure, of course) in a video produced by Cosmo.ph (watch the full video below):
Dr. Belo knows this concern pretty well; she has sweaty underarms herself! "I have been doing botox on my underarms for the last five years. It's the most wonderful procedure. You can just forget about your sweaty armpits." Botox Hyperhidrosis is usually done once every six months and "the great about it is [your underarms] are really, really dry," she shared.
The Belo Medical Group clinics have several laser hair removal treatment you can choose from, such as Cool Glide Laser, G-MaxHarmony SHR, Light Sheer Diode Laser, and Motif Laser Hair Removal. Some are painful, but they require fewer sessions.
Uneven or chicken skin and discoloration are caused by friction due to shaving and plucking armpit hair. If you already have "those pimply little things, bumpy skin, or chicken skin," as Dr. Belo described, don't worry. Revlite is the procedure for you. It's a pleasant, non-invasive 20-minute procedure and takes about six to eight sessions every two weeks, depending on the patient's case. Revlite also helps lighten your skin and shrink your pores.
For getting rid of dark armpits, Belo has a laser procedure that lightens skin by 98%. "It's a laser called Starwalker, and it's amazing. You do it once a month for four months; that's usually the minimum," Dr. Belo described. It gets rid of the mottled skin, brown spots, and red spots. The laser targets melanin deposits and effectively lightens and smoothens the skin, improving the overall skin tone.
Of course, beauty treatments — even just for your armpits — come at a cost. But, hey, if there's any season to splurge and deal with those kili-kili issues, it's the holidays. Treat yourself!
