Our arm lift treatment is designed to reduce or get rid of loose or sagging skin on the upper arm, usually caused by ageing and often referred to as ‘Bingo Wings’. At Illuminate, we use a combination of CoolSculpting (fat freezing) and thread lifting to restore firmness and re-contour the arm, along with carefully chosen body products to improve skin quality.
This is a bespoke treatment, with our recommended solution tailored specifically to the condition of each individual patient’s arms.

How does this treatment work?
CoolSculpting freezes away unwanted fat on your arms, which is carefully identified at your initial consultation. Thread Lifts enable us to give a ‘lift’ to specific areas of the arm by inserting threads with a cannula, through a tiny hole made in your skin. We will then recommend skin care products for on-going use to help maintain the firmness of your arm and improve the appearance of your skin.
What happens during my treatment?
This will depend on your individual treatment solution. If CoolSculpting is being used you will be sitting down and can watch television, read a magazine and enjoy and cup of tea. For Thread Lifts, you will be lying down with your arm slightly elevated.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
When CoolSculpting takes place you may feel some numbness in your hands, which will disappear after treatment. Following treatment, you may also feel some numbness in the treated area for a few weeks. Mild discomfort and bruising are common with Thread Lifts.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Anyone over 18 years old who is concerned about the shape of his or her upper arms.
