Sidelaze Arm Lift
Mildly lax skin of the upper arm can be improved with a single brief Sidelaze treatment. Sidelaze LASER brachioplasty is performed under the skin so that there is virtually no healing time, minimal risk of scarring, of discoloration, or wound healing problem compared to brachioplasty surgery, and is more effective than other technologies such as radiofrequency (Titan) applied to the outside of your skin.
Sidelaze is directionally controlled LASER applies a therapeutic dose of energy to the underside of the dermis of the skin that stimulates new collagen formation, thickens the dermis, and tightens the skin reducing the laxity of the upper arm skin. Sidelaze can be combined with liposuction for patients with mild amounts of excess upper arm fat.
This hour to hour and a half long procedure is performed under awake sedation technique, using a pain pill, a sedative pill and liposuction anesthetic solution instilled in the area treated. The treatment is done via needle holes, through which Sidelaze LASER probe is passed, therefore, usually no sutures are needed. Patient are typically able to leave within a half hour of the completion of the procedure.
The improvement may be noticeable within days of the treatment and will continue to improve for four to six months.
