Titan for Upper Arms?

I've had two Titan treatments on my upper arms and so far there was only a .5 cm decrease. How effective is Titan on the upper arms?

TITAN can produce good results, but not for very loose skin

All the skin tightening lasers promise miracles. I have a skin tightening laser, but I tell patients that if they get a 20% improvement they got a good result.  It is not an answer for very loose skin that surgical procedures can improve.

TITAN might work on upper arms with slightly loose skin

Titan does tighten the skin of the face and neck. When used in very select patients it helps in body skin tightening.

It could help the upper arms if a minor deformity is present. In cases where there is a true excess skin I do not think it will be that helpful. In my practice I had few patients with minimal laxity not requiring an arm lift, in these patients it might be worse it since the alternative is long scar.
