The effects of aging on the skin are familiar to all of us. Over time, the skin changes in four ways: it loses thickness, loses elasticity, loses adherence to the underlying tissue, and is affected by gravity.
At the same time, the deep layers of fat, muscle and bone thin as well. The amount of elastic tissue and collagen present in the dermis (the deep layer of the skin) also decreases.
One area where these changes are especially apparent is the upper arm. An arm lift can remove and tighten up loose skin in the upper arms, resulting in a firmer, more youthful contour.
The principal drawback is that the procedure may result in a visible scar along the inside or back of the arm.
Sidelaze Precision TX is a new LASER technology that can tighten lax skin and in patients with modest skin excess can improve the contour and laxity of the upper arms without the need for skin excision and scarring resulting from conventional brachioplasty, or arm lift operations.
