As we age, the elasticity of our upper arm skin starts to change. Heat treatments are available to tighten this loss of elasticity, such as radio frequency and ultrasound treatments (linkto Radio Frequency). Neither of these are permanent options but they can have great effects on otherwise untoned arms.
This treatment is mainly requested by women. Bear in mind it isn't suitable if you have a lot of loose skin on your arms.
An arm lift involves an application of either radio frequency (BodyFX) (link to BodyFX) or high intensity frequency ultrasound (HIFU) (link to HIFU). Radio frequency requires as many as six treatments performed weekly. With HIFU you will need 1-2 treatments, 3-6 months apart. We will talk through the choices with you at your initial consultation.
This treatment is not uncomfortable. In fact, radio frequency is quite pleasantly warm. On the other hand HIFU (link) can be a little uncomfortable, but we'll always take a patch test so we know exactly what level of ultrasound you can tolerate.
