Depending on where you live, you may have colder seasons where bundling up in bulky sweaters for three months out of the year is normal. Bulky sweaters are awesome for hiding all those “problem areas” on our bodies, but eventually, spring and summer arrive and the jig is up. Sweaters are going to be replaced with sleeveless styles to accommodate the warmer weather. Aging or significant weight loss can take its toll on our arms, and the skin can begin to sag, look crepey, and jiggle. If you can relate to this, you should know that this can end right now without surgery!
What Is a Non-Surgical Arm Lift?
Brachioplasty is the term used to describe a traditional arm lift that involves surgery to remove excess fat and skin from the upper arm area. Traditional liposuction is utilized to remove unwanted fat cells and then the excess skin is cut away using an incision and a scalpel. The results are a more contoured, sleeker upper arm area, however, a traditional arm lift leaves a fairly significant scar.
A non-surgical arm lift is a procedure that is done without surgery or the use of sutures. Excess fat is removed and the skin on the arms is tightened resulting in smoother, firmer, and more attractive upper arms.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Arm Lift?
Good candidates for a non-surgical arm lift are Individuals with mild to moderate saggy, loose, or crepey skin on the upper arms that would like to tighten and improve the way they look without surgery.
Candidates should also be in good overall health free from any medical conditions that would prevent them from having the procedure done. These can vary depending on which procedure is being used.

What Procedures Can Be Used to Perform a Non-Surgical Arm Lift?
1. BodyTite to Target Excess Fat and Loose Skin on the Arms
Bodytite is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). This provides a two-for-one type treatment eliminating fat deposits while tightening the skin in one procedure.
A long thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the fat layer just under the skin that simultaneously works in tandem with the radiofrequency tool being slid on the skin above. The unwanted fat is turned into liquid and eliminated while the skin becomes tighter.
Some results can be seen immediately and further results will manifest over the next several months as the body naturally produces new collagen and elastin in the treated areas.
2. Evolve for Non-Surgical Arm Lift
Three non-surgical treatments make up the Evolve Contouring family. They can be used as stand-alone procedures or used together for optimal results. Evolve treatments can help firm and shape the upper arm area and eliminate excess fat and jiggly skin. Individuals with any skin type can benefit from Evolve treatments. These treatments are fast and painless and require no downtime.
- Evolve Tite can tighten the skin and create smooth lines on the upper arm by targeting the subdermal layer of the skin using radiofrequency heat energy. Not only can it target and reshape the upper arm but will also jumpstart the body’s natural collagen production so results will continue to improve over time.
- Evolve Trim can remove unwanted fat deposits and cellulite in smaller areas like the arms through the combined use of a negative tissue vacuum and heat reaching into the lower layers of subcutaneous fat. Evolve trim will leave the arms looking smoother, tighter, and more contoured.
- Evolve Tone is an amazing treatment that helps create muscle definition without multiple “arm days” at the gym. It uses electronic muscle stimulation or EMS, which causes involuntary muscle contractions that increase your strength and the definition in your arm muscles. It is a great follow-up treatment to use after any excess fat has been eliminated and the surrounding skin has been tightened.
3. PHYSIQ Body and Arm Contouring
PHYSIQ is another amazing treatment that is non-invasive using the combination of EMS and Sequential Thermal and Electrical Pulse (STEP) therapy. It reshapes and firms resistant areas such as the upper arms.
PHYSIQ can target both excess fat and muscle at the same time on the arms. Electrical stimulation coupled with deep heat work together to tighten skin, enhance muscle definition, and reduce unwanted fat.
4. Morpheus8 for Saggy Skin on the Arms
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment utilizing both microneedling and radiofrequency together to work wonders on areas like the upper arm to reshape, contour, and tighten the skin. It is safe for most skin types and can be used with other tightening treatments for optimal results. Morpheus 8 is usually done in 3 treatments and provides excellent long-lasting results.
