Flabby upper arms are a source of embarrassment for many women, to the point that they may even avoid cocktail parties, beach events, and wearing short sleeves in general, making summertime a difficult season and causing their social lives to suffer. The upper arms can be a particularly embarrassing place to experience loose skin and excess fat simply because they are so visible. It’s hard to go through life and perform daily tasks without anyone seeing your upper arms -- and long sleeves aren’t always enough to conceal these flaws. Drooping skin and fat deposits can be so pronounced that they redefine the profile of the upper arms, even when sleeved.
If the appearance of your upper arms is detracting from your self-confidence and interfering with your social life, we at Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center want to help. Our Upper Arm Rejuvenation Package is the best the Los Angeles area has to offer, and it consists of three main elements to have you looking and feeling your best again in no time.
Do you have unwanted fat deposits that hang noticeably from your upper arms? The upper arm is a common area for the type of stubborn fat that resists changes to diet and exercise. When these lifestyle changes aren’t enough, we recommend CoolSculpting as the only fat removal of its kind, freezing fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. Other fat removal techniques, including liposuction, ultrasound, and laser treatments, are all effective but come with unwanted side effects such as bruising, bleeding, and swelling, as the surrounding skin has been damaged in the process and must recover. CoolSculpting eliminates this uncomfortable recovery period by targeting fat cells alone, leaving the surrounding cells intact and unharmed.
CoolSculpting is a comfortable, gentle, noninvasive technique that has been demonstrated to have a pronounced impact on unwanted fat deposits. After your treatment, you can expect to see a visible, gradual reduction in the fat on your upper arms over the course of the following three months.
Loose skin certainly doesn’t help matters – hanging fat deposits are made all the more obvious when the skin is too loose to hold them firmly in place, and gravity tugs them constantly downward. Even in the absence of excess fat, loose skin alone is enough to give the upper arms a flabby, sagging appearance, as folds of loose skin hang from the arms and jiggle with movement.
Traditionally, nonsurgical skin tightening has been performed using either radio frequency wavelengths or ultrasound technology. The BTL Exilis Ultra is the only system to combine the two for increased efficacy and precision in treatment. These skin treatments rely on heat to stimulate collagen production and new tissue growth, and the combination of the two methods in tandem allows for therapeutic temperatures to be reached much more quickly. While collagen forms to provide the skin with greater structure, fibroblast production and blood flow to the affected areas also increase, optimizing the cells’ nutrition and waste removal systems for greater overall cell health. Meanwhile, the BTL Exilis Ultra’s cooling tip both maintains the patient’s comfort and allows the practitioner to retain a great deal of control and precision over the treatment process.
Even if a preferred shape is restored to the upper arms, you may still be embarrassed and self-conscious due to the persistent stretch marks that remain even after the fat that caused them has melted away. Fortunately, part of our Upper Arm Rejuvenation Package is a choice of two safe and effective stretch mark treatment options. The first is Fraxel, an incredibly precise fractional laser tool that creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones in just a single square centimeter of skin, allowing the practitioner to effectively target blemishes without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
The second form of stretch mark treatment we offer is Vbea, which specifically targets blood vessels to reduce the appearance of redness on the skin. It is especially effective in fighting those bright red stretch marks that stand out so distinctly on the skin’s surface. The Vbeam uses heat to constrict blood vessels, lessening reddish blemishes on the surface of the skin.
Don’t let embarrassment about saggy, droopy upper arms covered in stretch marks prevent you from enjoying the life you want to live for another day. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we strive to create a comfortable environment for our patients, and are committed to medical excellence and consistent professionalism. When you come to us for your nonsurgical upper arm rejuvenation, you can rest assured that we will keep you well-informed of all your options and how they work at every step of the way.
