Loose skin can affect any area of the body, but the arms tend to be a very common area for this problem. Arms are often out on display, and when men and women suffer from loose skin it can affect their happiness and self-confidence.
There are a few causes of loose skin on the arms, with one of the main reasons being weight fluctuation. Individuals who have lost even a moderate amount of weight can be left with sagging loose skin on the arms and other areas. Another reason for loose skin on the arms is ageing, and this is a natural reaction to getting older. The skin will lose elasticity over time which, on this area is especially prone to the long term negative effects of gravity. This leads to sagging and skin that is less firm and tight than it used to be.
Men and women with loose skin on the arms have a few treatment options available that can help tighten and tone the area. Cosmetic treatments for treating sagging skin are becoming increasingly popular and offer impressive results.
Loose Skin On Arms Treatments At Hans Place Practice
Here at Hans Place Practice, our specialist team can help treat loose skin on the arms using a range of cosmetic treatments;
Renuvion is a ground-breaking treatment option for reducing loose skin on the arms and other problem areas. It is used to tighten the skin and the soft tissue below without the need for invasive surgery. Renuvion uses a small incision in the area to subdermally insert a wand which emits radio-frequency energy cooled by helium. This energy works to contract the tissue cells and boost collagen production in the skin, resulting in an instant firming effect.
While results can be seen instantly after treatment; they can continue to improve up to a year after the treatment as the body will continue to produce more collagen.
Some men and women with loose skin on arms will be able to be treated with just Renuvion; however VASER lipo can also be used alongside this. VASER lipo is used to selectively remove areas of fat and is recommended if loose skin on the arms is also accompanied by excess fatty tissue. It works by breaking down and emulsifying the fat while preserving other surrounding tissue.
