ArmTite, or Minimally Invasive Arm Lift, is a new, non-surgical solution to sagging skin and tissue in the arms.
Despite a healthy diet and countless hours of exercise, many people are faced with loose, sagging upper arms or “bat wings.” ArmTite is a non-surgical procedure that can tighten the area, resulting in beautiful, slender, athletic-looking arms.
ArmTite uses the same RFAL technology as a BodyTite procedure. RFAL stands for “Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis,” which generates heat. Like all RFAL treatments, ArmTite is performed under local anesthesia. A radiofrequency transmitting electrode is inserted into a small incision in the arm. The electrode then delivers radiofrequency to the fatty tissues. This procedure liquifies fat and stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
The best candidates for ArmTite have moderate stubborn fat deposits it the upper arms that are not responsive to regular dieting and exercise. They should be overall healthy and at a stable weight. Some patients with excess loose skin, such as those who have lost a significant amount of weight, may see better results from a traditional, surgical arm lift. Dr. Shienbaum will advise which procedure is best for you.
There is little downtime associated with the ArmTite procedure. Most patients can quickly return to normal, non-strenuous activities such as work or school after receiving ArmTite, typically after resting for a few days. Results are immediately visible, and continue to improve for three to six months after undergoing the procedure, as collagen will continue to improve after receiving ArmTite.
