Get Lean Upper Arms with CoolSculpting Arms Treatments

People with fat on their arms can feel self-conscious or even embarrassed. This often leads to feeling like you need to cover yourself, even when the weather is nice. And sometimes, eating well and staying hydrated and active just aren’t doing the trick. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. 

While CoolSculpting stomach fat remains one of the most popular treatment areas, many patients also use CoolSculpting for bat wings. Flabby arms are challenging to slim with diet and exercise alone. But with the help of fat-freezing technology, experienced providers can give you sculpted arms!

How Arm Fat Freezing Delivers Superior Results

Upper arm CoolSculpting works through cryolipolysis, a cooling technique that reduces stubborn fat without surgery. Back in 2017, Zeltiq, the maker of CoolSculpting, introduced the CoolPetite applicator. This handheld device was made specifically for treating hard-to-reach fat bulges, meaning it’s perfect for treating fat that tends to accumulate in the upper arms.

Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells in a targeted area. The controlled cooling temperatures penetrate the skin and target fat cells, causing the cell membrane to become brittle. As a result, the membrane ruptures, and it cannot do its job. This event triggers the body’s immune response. 

Several weeks after treatment, the body naturally gathers the dead cells and disposes of them. Best of all, CoolSculpting provides long-term results for individuals treated, which you can see in CoolSculpting before and after images. Once the dead cells are removed, they can never return or regrow. It’s part of what makes this technology so incredible!

What Causes Fat Arms?

At Dermatology Laser Center, patients often ask specific questions about why their arms carry excess fat and why it’s so hard to get rid of. This is fair because upper arm fat is a notorious problem for men and women. 

Genetics, age, and hormones play a significant role in accumulating fat cells in the upper arms. Due to the biology of these specific fat deposits, they tend to resist diet and exercise, making them nearly impossible to lose. 

Before CoolSculpting, individuals struggling with “bat wings” didn’t really have many fat-freezing options. There was liposuction, an invasive surgery with many downfalls. But now, you can utilize non-invasive arm CoolSculpting to reduce upper arm fat.

Is Arm Fat Freezing Right for Me?

Unfortunately, CoolSculpting is not for every person. There is such a thing as the perfect fat-freezing candidate. The ideal candidate is a healthy, active adult struggling with fat cells resistant to diet and exercise efforts. In addition, the candidate should not be obese or severely overweight. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss program and should never be used to treat obesity. 

During your complimentary consultation, an expert technician evaluates your upper arms, discusses your goals and expectations, and determines if CoolSculpting suits you. If it is, our staff create a plan to fit your needs and budget.

What to Expect When You Try Arm CoolSculpting

The first step in this process is to schedule a consultation. You need to speak with a provider about your expectations and medical history, and they will need to assess your upper arm fat. If everything is clear to move forward, you’ll schedule your first session (if you’re doing multiple sessions). 

Your Arm CoolSculpting Session

The treatment requires no anesthesia; your provider will begin by applying a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator to the proper location. The upper arm applicator follows the curve of the arm for maximum sculpting. 

One session typically lasts 35 minutes, where you may feel slight pulling, tingling, intense cold, and aching. Once complete, your provider will massage the area to warm it up and help the body absorb frozen cells. After that, you’re free to go about your day! Most patients find it easy to get back to their regular routine, although we do recommend some extra rest to let your body adjust.

CoolSculpting Arms Cost

CoolSculpting for arms is priced per person because treatments are tailored to your unique goals. Some factors influencing CoolSculpting cost include the applicator needed, the number of cooling cycles, and any discounts or specials available. Depending on your needs, it can range from several hundred to a few thousand dollars. 

To get your precise price, schedule a complimentary consultation. During your visit, a specialist creates the perfect treatment plan that fits your budget and simultaneously achieves your aesthetic body goals.

Upper Arm CoolSculpting Safety

CoolSculpting has a high safety profile. A 2017 study backed the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting arm treatment. In this study, “Cryolipolysis for Reduction of Arm Fat,” 30 female subjects’ treated arms were showcased. The researchers found that CoolSculpting arms resulted in significant fat reduction

Moreover, 85% of participants demonstrated visible reductions in upper arm fat. This led researchers to conclude that “these data suggest that [CoolSculpting arms] provides rapid, safe, and effective arm treatment.”  It is important to note that CoolSculpting is skill-sensitive. The more skilled the person performing the treatment, the more impressive the fat reduction.

Upper Arm CoolSculpting Results

As mentioned above, once the fat cell ruptures, it triggers an immune response that collects the dead cells and disposes of them through the lymphatic system as waste. This process takes several weeks after treatment. 

After eight to 12 weeks, individuals see a more dramatic fat reduction, revealing a slim, sculpted appearance. Results continue to build on themselves, especially if you receive more than one arm CoolSculpting session. 

Two or three treatments may be the key to reaching your goals. We recommend spacing each session at least one month apart to give the body time to adjust. The body continues to flush out dead fat cells for up to six months after your final session.

Can Arm Fat Return After CoolSculpting?

Since the eliminated fat cells can’t come back, you can expect results to remain for the long term. But it’s important to note that not all fat cells in the upper arms will be frozen. 

There will still be fat cells remaining to give you natural yet transformative results. The existing fat cells can expand, so you should still follow a healthy diet and exercise routine. Combining an active lifestyle with advanced technology brings the best possible results!

CoolSculpting Arm Fat Aftercare

After a CoolSculpting session, you may feel stinging, itching, and skin sensitivity. The skin will be tender during this time, so give yourself some time to rest. 

We recommend doing the following for several days to minimize post-treatment side effects:

  • Stay away from sugary foods and drinks
  • Avoid drinking caffeine 
  • Pause alcohol and nicotine consumption 
  • Massage the area 
  • Take a pain medication
  • Apply warm compresses
  • Gently exercise and stretch

Be sure to find a trustworthy provider to guide you through the journey, from your initial consultation to offering the best CoolSculpting aftercare tips. It’s normal to experience temporary numbness, redness, and swelling. Some patients see bruising. We are here to make sure you’re comfortable and confident moving through this journey!
