Surgery is as complex as it sounds. Liposuction is one of the fat-loss surgeries used to tome the arms. People think liposuction is the easiest way to lose arm fat permanently. But, it’s not as healthy as you think.

Not all the patients are prescribed for liposuction. If you have skin sag problems, liposuction can make it worse. It’s not for everyone. You need to go through a physical exam. This decides whether you’re fit for the surgical procedure or not. Some patients experience side effects of the weight loss surgeries.

Scientific Nonsurgical Treatments:

Acoustic waves:

Acoustic waves are extremely strong non-focused sound pulses that induce vibration within the body. This is similar technology to the extra-corporeal shock wave therapy which is sometimes used to treat kidney stones and other ailments, such as foot pain caused by heel spurs and plantar fascitis.

In aesthetic medicine, the acoustic radial soft waves were successfully modified to the clinical needs of cellulite therapy and for the treatment of other aesthetic conditions.

How does it work?

  • The firmness and elasticity of the dermis increases.
  • Blood circulation and collagen production is significantly stimulated.
  • Restored elasticity of skin & connective tissue
  • Visible improvement in skin texture

High focused ultrasound:

HFU uses targeted ultrasound energy to burst fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. The released fat is used up in the body. Our body cannot form new fat cells after a specific age, so the destroyed fat cells are never replaced. Less fat cells means less space for body to deposit fat. If one follows a healthy lifestyle that we advise our patients; these results are permanent. This can help people with genetic predisposition to deposit fat on arms.

Ion Magnum:

When we exercise our brain sends signals to the corresponding muscles. Ion Magnum mimics these signals so that the muscle tissue is made to believe that it is performing a muscle-toning workout. In return what you get is the benefits of an intense, professional workout minus the pain, physical exertion or inconvenience of conventional exercise. It reduces both surface & visceral fat & also builds muscles & improves muscle mass. This naturally increases metabolic rate which further initiates fat loss from arms.

All the nonsurgical treatments have effective and visible results and have no side effects.
