An Overview of Arm Fat

Each arm comprises about 5% to 6% of the human anatomy. Because there is a significant amount of muscle in the human arm, there is also a relatively high proportion of fat in the arms. As a rule, women have more difficulty losing arm fat than men, but either gender can accumulate extra layers or pockets of fat in the arm. Diet and exercise are sometimes effective in losing arm fat, but for many, they’re unable to achieve their desired aesthetics this way.

The Causes of Arm Fat

The number one cause of arm fat is overall obesity. If you have a high BMI, you are also more likely to have arm fat. If you feel that your body weight is normal or that your arms are disproportionately fat, there may be other causes at play. Here are some other factors that can contribute to the appearance of arm fat:

  • Genetics – Your body type is significantly impacted by genetics. If your genetic ancestors had excess arm fat, you might be fighting an uphill battle.
  • Hormones, particularly in women – Hormones can affect the way you metabolize food and store fat, but in women, they can also create swelling in the breast tissue. This can create the appearance of fat in the area where your breasts meet the shoulder and arm.
  • Swollen lymph nodes – While this doesn’t actually increase the fat in your arms, it can promote the appearance of fat upper arms.

If you believe that you have a condition unrelated to fat deposits or obesity, contact your physician to schedule an appointment.

Why It’s Hard to Lose Arm Fat

Arm fat can be extremely difficult to lose with diet and exercise. Overall fat reduction should have an impact on arm fat, but because so much of the way that human beings carry fat is determined by age, diet, hereditary genetics, and gender, you may see results elsewhere but not in your arms. Here are some of the reasons that people find it difficult to lose arm fat:

  • They are genetically predisposed to have arm fat.
  • They have a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Their diet doesn’t promote fat reduction.
  • They have a hormonal imbalance.

Fortunately, the Emerald Laser method provides an effective treatment for individuals who have difficulty reducing arm fat.

How Laser Fat Removal Works for Arm Fat

The Emerald Laser treatment uses ten 532-nanometer low-frequency lasers to target fat cells. The lasers are pointed at the fat cells through the skin. The beam creates pores in the walls of the fat cells and liquefies the lipids inside. The emulsified fat then drains from the cells and is disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system. The fat cells are left intact, which means they can store normal amounts of fat if needed. This is one of the key benefits of laser lipo. The destruction of fat cells resulting from other reduction methods, like liposuction and fat freezing, can have counterproductive and unhealthy results.

What You Should Expect after Laser Fat Removal

One of the greatest benefits of laser lipo is that there is no recovery period. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately after leaving our treatment centers. Because the entire process takes less than an hour, you can schedule a session before or after work or even on your lunch break. In some rare cases, patients experience skin discoloration, which has cleared up in a day or two.

Fat Removal for All Areas of the Body

Emerald Laser’s laser lipo doesn’t only work effectively on arms but on all areas of the body. Emerald Laser is the only laser fat removal product to receive premarket clearance from the FDA for overall circumference reductions. Emerald Laser has also received 18 other market clearances from the FDA. Laser fat reduction can also be used to address fat around the chin, neck, hips (including love handles), thighs, waist, back, shoulders, and more.

Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Laser lipo has several advantages over surgical fat reduction processes. Non-surgical fat removal means that you can avoid the necessity of anesthesia or even a localized anesthetic. Additionally, there is no recovery time for laser lipo. The Emerald Laser method doesn’t involve incisions or injections, and there’s no downtime, no pain, no bruising, and no side effects.
