ThermiTight or Arm Lift
There are many machines, on the market, that claim to deliver heat to the skin for remodeling of collagen. Thermi delivers that heat through a probe or external through Radiofrequency.
Every machine on the market for the last 10 years or so has failed to prove it's efficacy, in delivering the heat and tightening the skin
If you read these companies claims of the mechanism of action, it is vague, un scientific in describing the anatomy and the ultimate effect on tissue without any scientific data.
This market of non-invasive tightening of tissue plays on the emotional decisions of patients and marketing ploys.

Thank you for your question and posting appropriate pictures. ThermiTight is an excellent minimally invasive procedure to provide tightening of the skin. I reserve that for patients that have loose skin in this area. In your case, you better option would likely be laser liposuction SmartLipo to remove fat and tighten the skin at the same time. You would need to have a consultation for proper recommendations.
Thermitight for arms
I've been performing ThermiTight for skin tightening for face and body for the past 2 years. It clearly works and is the best non-surgical treatment for skin laxity (in my opinion). However, it doesn't replace surgery--especially in people who have lost a lot of weight. If the goal is to obtain the best possible result and the tightest skin, then you'll probably need to go with surgical excision. If the goal is to get a mild improvement, then you could consider ThermiTight. It all depends on your expectations. I recommend going in for a consultation with a plastic surgeon who performs ThermiTight as well as arm lifts. Good luck!
