Stretch Marks On Upper Arm
A photo of the area you are describing would be very helpful. Some things to consider with the upper arm is the location of the stretch marks and the looseness of the skin. Lasers can help with diminishing the appearance of stretch marks but cannot remove them. Lasers can also cause some tightening of the skin, but this tightening is usually minimal. If significant loose skin is present, then surgery (a brachioplasty) will give the most dramatic change and improvement in the shape of the arm. If stretch marks are within the removed skin, then those stretch marks are removed too. Surgery, however, will leave a noticeable scar on the inside of the upper arm. What is most important are your goals and expectations. Please consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss your needs. Thanks for the question.
