Recent studies have shown that women are paying increasingly more attention to their arms. Toned and sculpted arms are considered to be the sign of a young, energetic and healthy body.
While regular exercise can tone your upper arm muscles, it cannot change skin quantity or laxity. Even if your body weight never fluctuated much, your arms may always have suffered from excessive slackening of the skin. Age also affects skin elasticity, causing once firm skin to loosen and sag.
Depending on your morphology and expectations, aesthetic surgery or medicine can help you to address these issues.
Arm lifting (or brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure that involves tightening the skin on the inner side of the arms. Brachioplasty reshapes and tightens your upper arms. The surgeon will use liposuction in combination with other surgical techniques to remove excess tissue and skin.
Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical procedure that reduces fat cells (adipocytes) through freezing. This non-invasive method does not require any anaesthetic. It involves cooling down the fat cells to -8°C to trigger their destruction (lipolysis) naturally and definitively. Cryolipolysis may be indicated to reduce fat deposists in the arms.
The HIFU technique, applied in our practice and without anaesthesia, uses a high-precision ultrasound technology in which short or a series of consecutive pulses are emitted through heads working at different depths. The highly targeted use of ultrasonic waves helps to reshape existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen in areas where it is necessary to firm up and tighten the skin. This almost painless technique allows you to resume your activities immediately.
ZField is a cutting-edge technology that promotes targeted muscular development, combined with the burning of fat. The treatment is performed by means of electromagnetic pulses that help muscles to contract. This painless treatment brings about powerful, so-called supra-maximal, muscle contractions. The muscle tissue responds by thoroughly reshaping its internal structure, building muscle tone and burning fat.
