Until recently most body sculpting treatments were not intended or were not suitable for upper arm sculpting. One of the reasons was that not much attention was paid to the upper arm. If you undergo various body treatments and do not treat the upper arm you are making a mistake.
With some people upper arms are a great problem because they do not succeed in tightening the excess of skin or to remove fat. Oftentimes both issues should be treated. Therefor, for those individuals wearing short sleeves is not an option because of aesthetic reasons. Usually for upper arm sculpting a surgery was used, which unfortunately results with scars, long-term recovery and swelling of the arms. Today surgery is used only in extreme cases when issues cannot be dealt with non-invasive methods. Now that we have efficient methods at our disposal let us use them so we can wear short sleeves again.
This method uses electromagnetic energy which effect water molecules by turning them and thus releasing energy. The created energy destroys fat cells which are then urinated and the connective tissue is damaged. This is a sign for the organism to repair the damage by creating new connective tissue and strengthening the existing one. This method is used for reduction of fat and volume with a skin tightening effect. 6 treatments are needed and intervals in between the treatments are 2 to 4 weeks. Initial results can usually be seen a few months after the last treatment because the organism needs time to remove the fat and to tighten its skin. Final results are visible 6 to 9 months after the last treatment. Until then minor improvements can be seen daily. Because of a slow metabolism results come later. There is no recovery period.
This method uses phosphatidylcholine, a substance which forms the cell membrane. Its role is to destroy the membrane of all fat cells and boost metabolism. The smallest needles are used to inject phosphatidylcholine. 1 to 3 treatments are needed and 5 to 8 weeks must pass between treatments. Apart from reducing volume, this method tightens the skin. Volume reduces 2 to 3cm per treatment (in average). Recovery time needed is 3 to 5 days because bruises and swelling of arms is possible.
This method has the same principles as lipostabil, but uses electric energy to inject the phosphatidylcholine. 6 to 10 treatments are needed. Weekly 1 to 3 treatments are done. No recovery time is needed.
Co2 is injected into the skin in order to destroy fat cells and boost metabolism. Injections are painless, but slight discomfort can be felt as gas enters the organism. There is no recovery time needed and there are no bruises. 6 to 12 treatments are needed or 4 to 6 treatments if combined with other methods.
