Do you shy away from wearing short-sleeves because of your flabby upper arms, but dread the idea of surgery? Have you ever wondered – how do I get rid of excess underarm skin and fat without surgery? If you are not ready for surgery, there are several exciting non-surgical options that can be used to slim and tone the arms.
Non-invasive treatment for underarm fat
It’s impossible to spot reduce the upper arms, because you simply won’t take off weight in that area alone. However, there are several cosmetic laser treatments such as Exilis that can be used to reduce and tighten the upper arms.
Here are some of the frequently asked questions about Exilis treatment:
What is Exilis? Exilis is a non-invasive body sculpting device that uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy.
How does it work? The RF energy targets and heats up the lower level of skin,and fat layers in the upper arm. The heat destroys the fat cells, which are later eliminated by the body, and it tightens the skin at the same time.
Does it hurt? There is virtually no pain with Exilis, because of the controlled heating provided by its Energy Flow Controlsystem. Patients feel a warm/hot sensation during treatment, which is generally tolerable.
How many treatments will you need?It typically takes 2-3 treatments, spaced about 7-10 days apart, to significantly tone and tighten the upper arm area.
After Treatment: There is no downtime after Exilis treatment. However, there may be some redness at the treated area, which generally clears within an hour or two.
