Upper Arms Treatments
Non-surgical Solutions: CoolSculpting vs Liposuction
Read on for answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment, and therefore requires no anaesthetic. A cold gel pad will be applied to the area to be treated, ensuring that skin is protected from the extreme cold; however, once the treatment begins, the area quickly becomes numb – so any sensation is minimal.
Our tailor-made CoolSculpting plans enable us to slim and shape the upper arms – and we use a variety of different-shaped applicators, which allow us to follow the body’s natural contours. Though the primary function of CoolSculpting is to refine the silhouette, it also has a mild skin tightening effect – a combination that also assists in lessening the appearance of slack tissue and “bingo wings”.
There is very little downtime with CoolSculpting, and most patients are ready to resume their normal activities straight after treatment. Some might experience tingling, redness or slight bruising in the area treated; however, this is normal and usually subsides in the following weeks.
The full effects of CoolSculpting take up to three months to be seen – the time taken for the body to eliminate the fat cells – however, some patients notice a reduction in stubborn fat pockets even sooner. While the fat cells cannot return to the treated area, it is important that you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle – for a sustainable, and long-lasting result.
