Coolsculpting for arms
Coolsculpting works extremely well on the arms with no down time. Depending on the amount of skin laxity, I often combine coolsculpting with Thermage to give the best results. First we treat the arms with coolsculping. A week later we bring the patient back for Thermage. This combined approach works best when addressing both the fat and skin laxity. Please consult an experienced dermatologist for this procedure.

CoolSculpting (CS) is tried and true in fat reduction. CS does not advertise skin tightening but in certain areas of the body such as the back and flanks, CS does stimulate enough inflammation to shrink the skin around the loss of fat rather than loosen or hang.
I have yet to be convinced of any current or past technology that claims skin tightening. Occasionally you will see some immediate constriction but lack of permanent collagen stimulated production will last less than 3 months.
Consider a arm tuck with the scar in the armpit or a traditional arm lift (brachioplasty). Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for this procedure.
I wish you success in your desires!

- Hello, and thank you for your question. As a general rule cool sculpting is not recommended for skin tightening although there have been several reports that is documented some improvement. It is mostly used for fat reduction. We have tried several noninvasive tightening devices with mixed results. I would recommend that you seek out a qualified board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your treatment options with you at length. Best of luck.
Coolsculpting is at best only fair at improving arm fat
