The Cosmetic Skin Clinic's 2019 Roundup
One of the main reasons to avoid wearing sleeveless tops and dresses is due to dreaded bingo wings. The upper arms are a frustrating – sometimes embarrassing – area of concern for many women, especially if you are fit and with low body fat.
Workouts for biceps and triceps are unlikely to firm arm fat. Surgery is an option but leaves a visible scar. Instead, there are several non-surgical arm lift treatments that are highly effective against unwanted arm fat and crepey, sagging skin on the inside of the upper arms.
For example, CoolSculpting® can significantly reduce unwanted arm fat, EMSculpt can sculpt and tone the biceps and triceps, while Ultherapy® and Thermage® CPT are skin lifting and skin tightening treatments with durable results.
*DISCLAIMER Patient experience and results may vary. These are dependent on a number of factors such as lifestyle, age and medical history.
As we age, our bodies slow down the production of essential proteins that enable skin to stretch and contract: elastin and collagen. Connective tissues and muscles deteriorate and skin under the arms becomes loose and sagging.
We offer a variety of arm lift treatments which are sometimes more effective when combined – your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
CoolSculpting – fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment for the reduction in arm fat ‘bingo wings’, which are due to deposits of fat in the upper arm area:
Ultherapy – uses focused ultrasound imaging to tighten and lift sagging arm skin:
Thermage CPT – a safe, non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) technology that tightens and firms up the skin on the upper arms:

Some people find arm fat freezing treatment a little uncomfortable during the first 5-15 minutes when the CoolMini applicator freezes the skin and fat, but very few patients have reported experiencing sensation during treatment and all have said it subsided quite soon.
With Ultherapy, discomfort may only happen when the ultrasound energy is delivered, but this is a temporary sensation and a positive sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated. A recent upgrade, Ultherapy Amplify, has been introduced which has been found to be more comfortable.
We use the latest Thermage CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology) which has a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue and cooling effects to protect the skin’s surface and deliver better patient comfort. Throughout the procedure, your practitioner will ask if you are fine with the level of heat sensation to make sure you feel comfortable while achieving the very best results for you.
