Arm Fat

The build-up of arm fat under the arms is a common condition that can obscure our muscle tone. Our non-invasive fat freezing and body sculpting treatments can target arm fat and reduce the appearance of 'bingo wings' without any invasive surgery or downtime.

Arm Fat Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

What causes arm fat?

Arm fat is usually caused by a gradual accumulation of fat, which many people find difficult to get rid of simply by going to the gym. As we age, our body stores fat in various areas, such as arms, which becomes more evident than our lean muscles. Our rate of metabolism also decreases, meaning fewer calories get burned. This can lead to arm fat looking more prominent.

What causes fat in the upper arms?

A primary concern for many people is the build-up of arm fat in the upper arms. The upper arms contain deep fat and subcutaneous fat layers, but as we age, the subcutaneous layer of fat that sits just beneath our skin often increases in size. This can lead directly to fatty deposits collecting around our upper arms, leading to the formation of ‘bingo wings.’ These sagging pockets of fat obscure our tricep muscles and can make us look and feel aged and out-of-shape.

How to get rid of arm fat

Adopting a healthy eating plan and completing arm fat exercises to lose arm fat is a great method to reduce the layers of subcutaneous fat build-up around your arm area. Strength-based arm exercises involving weight-lifting, like bicep and tricep curls and tricep dips are fantastic at helping us to lose arm fat in this target zone. However, this process is often time-consuming, and in some cases, it may not get rid of bingo wings with long-term results. This is where non-surgical body sculpting treatments like arm fat freezing can help. Losing arm fat non-surgically is a relatively quick and easy method that requires no invasive surgery or disabling side effects. It can also produce similar results to surgical arm lift treatments like liposuction, but without any of the troublesome recovery time. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we specialise in using CoolSculpting arm fat freezing as our primary method to minimise fat across the arms. But we also offer a range of additional treatments that can help to sculpt and tone the arms to give them a more contoured and toned appearance, while minimising the appearance of bingo wings.

Get rid of arm fat with our leading non surgical arm fat removal treatments.

Arm Fat Removal with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that can effectively reduce arm fat in the upper arm or ‘bingo wings’ area. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment which delivers proven results without surgery, anaesthesia or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells in flabby arms with results that are long-lasting and noticeable. And with the introduction of the new CoolAdvantage Petite, specifically designed to treat the unique shape of the upper arms, getting rid of these stubborn areas of fat is even easier.

Your practitioner will use the specialised CoolSculpting applicator to target areas of arm fat specifically.
