Arm Lift

One of the main reasons to avoid wearing sleeveless tops and dresses can be due to the appearance of our upper arms. It can also be genetic, even if we are fit, maintain a healthy lifestyle and have low body fat.

As we age, our bodies slow down the production of essential proteins that enable skin to stretch and contract because our elastin and collagen diminishes. Connective tissues and muscles deteriorate and skin under the arms becomes loose and sagging. Workouts for biceps and triceps are unlikely to firm the arm fat, surgery is an option but leaves a visible scar. Alternatively, there are several non-surgical ‘arm lift’ treatments that are highly effective at sculpting, tone and redefine the upper arms.

Contact our team of specialists in London and Buckinghamshire to find out if this is the treatment you need to achieve the look that you’ve always wanted!

Different treatments achieve different outcomes. We would recommend an initial consultation with one of our qualified medical practitioners who will assess you and devise a personalised treatment plan that’s tailored to treat your concern.

It depends on the arm lift treatment recommended for you, or if you are having a combination of the treatments mentioned. Our medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need at the time of your consultation.

There is little to no downtime with any of the treatments mentioned above. You may experience a little redness immediately after treatment which disappears very quickly. In some cases, you may experience slight bruising, but this can disappear in a few days. But with all these treatments you can resume normal activities right away.

When the CoolPetite applicator is first placed on the area being treated, you may feel a slight pulling sensation as it turns colder in the first 5 minutes but all this subsides very quickly, so you can sit back and relax to watch TV, which is available in all of our CoolSculpting suites.

EMSculpt just feels like an intensive workout, but you are lying down and can relax during the treatment.

With Ultherapy, temporary discomfort may be felt when the ultrasound energy is delivered, but this is only a temporary sensation and a positive sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated. With the upgrade of Ultherapy Amplify, it has been found to be much more comfortable treatment.

Thermage CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology) has a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue and cooling effects to protect the skin’s surface to deliver improvedpatient comfort. Throughout the procedure, your practitioner will checkthe level of heat sensation to make sure you feel comfortable while achieving the very best treatment results for you.
