Fat freezing on the upper arms to sculpt and tighten

With just a single fat freezing treatment you can sculpt your upper arms.


Fat freezing offers long term fat reduction in targeted areas such as the arms as it permanently reduces the amount of fat cells in the area. While commonly used on areas like the abdomen and thighs, fat freezing on the arms has emerged as the solution for those seeking a non-invasive, effective, and targeted approach to sculpting arms.

Understanding fat freezing for the arms

The science of fat freezing

Fat freezing involves the controlled application of extremely low temperatures to targeted areas of the body, causing the fat cells to undergo apoptosis, or programmed cell death. This process triggers the body's natural elimination mechanisms, gradually removing the treated fat cells over several weeks. The science behind fat freezing is based on the principle that fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than surrounding tissues, making it a safe and precise method for body contouring.

Why fat freezing works so well on the upper arms

The upper arms can be enlarged as a result of your genetics, due to weight gain, due to aging or due to a combination of these factors. 

The loosening of the fat on the upper arms and unwanted excess of fat on the upper arms is mostly an issue for women, but the treatment can also be provided to men. 

Fat freezing is highly effective on the upper arms as the "problem area" perfectly fits into the fat freezing applicator, allowing for 20 to 40% fat reduction over the entire upper arm area with just a single fat freezing session. This level of fat reduction is clearly noticeable, with your arms looking and feeling tighter and smaller. Where arms move, or 'jiggle', the fat reduction will often cause a significant reduction in movement too. 

Fat freezing and excess skin

For the far majority of clients undergoing the fat freezing treatment on the arms the skin naturally tightens back up around the reduced fat.


It is highly unlikely and very rare for clients experience a sagging of the skin on the arms after fat freezing, as the skin is strong and capable of bouncing back in line with the fat reduction. However, where there is an issue of loosening skin, for example due to advanced age, skin tightening aftercare treatment can be offered in clinic. 

Where on the arms applicators can be placed

When treating the excess fat on the upper arms (the bingo wings) the applicators are placed at the most fatty area on the upper arm.


There are 2 positions in which the applicators can be placed on the arms. Either the applicators can be placed on top of the under arms with the arms resting above the head, or the arms can rest on top of the applicators with the hands meeting above the stomach.  

Alternatively to the placement on the upper arms applicators can also be placed on the side of the body directly below the arms, as this treatment helps to get rid of armpit fat, or the "bra bulge".

The benefits of fat freezing on the arms


Unlike traditional surgical procedures such as liposuction, arm fat freezing is entirely non-invasive. This means no incisions, anaesthesia, or downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

Precision targeting

Fat freezing allows for precise targeting of specific areas, making it ideal for sculpting the arms. This precision ensures that only the unwanted fat cells are affected, leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. This is particularly beneficial when addressing localized pockets of fat that may be resistant to diet and exercise.

Minimal discomfort

Patients undergoing fat freezing on their arms generally experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. While there may be a sensation of intense cold initially, the area typically becomes numb within a few minutes. This contrasts with the pain and discomfort often associated with more invasive fat removal methods. For some fat freezing treatment can hurt for the first few minutes of treatment.

Natural-looking results

One of the key advantages of fat freezing on the arms is its ability to deliver natural-looking results. The gradual elimination of fat cells allows for a subtle and smooth transformation, avoiding the abrupt changes that can occur with some surgical procedures. This natural progression also minimizes the risk of irregularities or asymmetry.

Versatility and customization

Fat freezing devices come in various shapes and sizes, allowing for customization based on the individual's anatomy and specific arm sculpting goals. This versatility ensures that the treatment can be tailored to address the unique contours and dimensions of each patient's arms, providing a personalized and effective solution.

Thoroughly researched

Fat freezing is one of the few non-invasive fat reduction treatments that has been thoroughly researched and FDA approved. The science behind fat freezing is well understood and the treatment is offered around the world by plastic surgeons and beauticians. For many professionals fat freezing is the choice when opting for non-surgical fat reduction due to its known safety profile and known efficacy. 

Booking in for arm fat freezing

You can book your arm fat freezing treatment online, by phone or email. Our online booking system is easy to use and allows you to view all availability in an instant. 

To book fat freezing for the arms you will select "2 applicators" as we use 1 applicator on each side. A 2 applicator treatment costs £175. 

Each treatment reduces fat in the targeted area on the arms, so it is not necessary to have multiple appointments to get the results you are looking for. However, depending on the original size of the arms and your goals you may want to have follow up treatments 6 to 12 weeks following your original arm fat reduction appointment.
