One of the most common ways to reduce bingo wings is to tighten the skin that causes them. The sometimes unsightly skin on the upper arm is caused by loss of collagen and elastin, vital proteins that give skin its elasticity and strength. When these structures begin to decline, skin becomes weaker and less able to bounce back, causing, in some cases, considerable sagging.
Radio-frequency and ultrasound
Radio-frequency technology is used to tighten and lift skin, as well as improving texture and tone. It works by targeting the collagen fibres at various depths in the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms, which has a firming effect over time.
Using ultrasound technology, Ultraformer produces heat energy to stimulate collagen synthesis over time. This in turn helps to firm and lift skin for a tightening effect to reduce bingo wings without needing surgical intervention.
CoolSculpting - Fat Reduction
If lax skin is not the source of the concern, and instead the bingo wing appearance is caused by excess or stubborn fat in the area, our clinicians may suggest a fat reduction treatment instead. At PHI, we use CoolSculpting to target these areas with the new CoolAdvantage Petite applicator, which was designed specifically to treat smaller pockets of fat like those on the upper arms, above the knee, and on the mid back.
This uses cryolipolysis technology to ‘freeze’ fat without damaging the overlying skin for a long-term reduction in bingo wings, provided aftercare instructions and a healthy lifestyle are followed.
