Loose elbow skin treatment options question (Photo)
2 years ago
I'm 33 & naturally thin. I weight train, am working to gain weight/muscle, drink water, exfoliate, eat great. My arms aren't sagging/loose, just my elbows. I saw a procedure online - the Dr made an insicion just above the elbows & tightened JUST the elbow skin. Is this a good option? It would take too much filler to plump them, I'm not a good candidate for fat transfer, I don't need a brachioplasty & I'm not sure a tightening laser would have much effect. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have found a combination of Sculptra and radiofrequency treatments like venus legacy and thermage help increase the tightening in this area. Fractional laser like Fraxel added, can help increase collagen as well. Best, Dr. Emer.
