Is Liposonix Good for Flabby Arms? and How Many Treatment It May Take?

Treatment for "Flabby Arms”?

Thank you for the question.

Although it is not possible to give you good advice without direct examination or viewing pictures, “flabby arms”  generally cannot be treated with any modality except arm lifting. This procedure involves excision of redundant/loose skin and subcutaneous tissues. Any other modality of treatment will likely leave you with loose skin and an unsatisfactory aesthetic result.

I hope this helps.

Flabby skin

Skin can only be tightened by surgical excision. There are many devices that claim to tighten the skin but there is no proof what-so-ever.

Liposonix is not designed to tighten skin.  If you have moderate to severe excess of skin in your arms, you will most likely need skin excision to correct the contour and tighten the arms.
