We explain hyperpigmentation and the range of treatment options available.
As we age, skin on the arms can become loose and appear to sag.
We’re all familiar with the term ‘bingo wings’, which, whilst used in jest, can be something that people feel self-conscious about – so much so that they hesitate to wave or lift their arms in public, or choose to wear clothing that covers their upper arms.
There are lots of reasons why skin on the arms can loosen and show the signs of ageing. Natural loss of collagen and elastin as we get older can cause skin to lose its youthful elasticity. Lack of muscle tone or weight loss can also be factors, as well as hormonal changes as we grow older, with the decrease in testosterone production.
The good news is that there are a number of treatments and approaches to improving, smoothing and toning skin on the arms so there’s no reason not to raise your hands.
Providing one of the highest levels of hyaluronic acid available on the market, Profhilo is a unique, injectable, hydrating gel.
Profhilo is delivered into the skin via a series of small injections and has a prolonged, stimulating effect on the dermal cells which triggers the patient’s own, natural, anti-ageing processes.
After a month, patients can expect skin on their arms to feel smoother, softer, tighter and plumper. A second treatment then fully stimulates the collagen and elastin production for optimal results.
Known for its ability to rejuvenate and sculpt the skin, Venus Freeze is an award-winning skin contouring treatment.
Venus Freeze is a treatment device that is used to reduce wrinkles, improve cellulite and skin laxity – so it is an ideal treatment for those who wish to recontour the skin on their arms.
The treatment combines magnetic pulses and radio frequency to raise the temperature of the skin. This process creates a thermal effect, which enables collagen remodelling. This has a rejuvenating effect on the skin without discomfort or down time.
Venus Freeze can achieve significantly younger looking skin on the arms.
Skin Care Products
At Melior Clinics we are official distributors of some of the world’s leading cosmeceutical treatments and therapies.
Cosmeceutical products differ from purely cosmetic products. They are able to deliver pharmaceutical-grade benefits for the skin, this means they are more effective at treating certain skin issues as, often, they work at a cellular level.
Our product ranges contain ingredients such as retinol, salicylic, lactic, and glycolic acids in concentrations that have a retexturising effect, to improve the appearance of skin – this can be particularly beneficial for the arms.
Our practitioner will recommend the most appropriate skin care products and regime for your individual skin type and desired outcome.
