Struggling to Lose Bat Wings? Consider Nonsurgical Skin Tightening

By: Dr. Brenda Vozza


Are you unhappy with your arms? Do you feel self-conscious about wearing sleeveless tops or swimsuits? Many people struggle to achieve toned upper arms and end up feeling frustrated. Now, nonsurgical devices can improve the appearance of flabby arms without invasive incisions or downtime.

Bat wings are a common concern but often cannot be addressed through exercise alone. Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates, P.A. offers the advanced Accent Prime by Alma, which combines radiofrequency and ultrasound technologies for a slimmer and more contoured look. Learn more about this unique aesthetic treatment by meeting with Dr. Brenda Vozza in Longview, TX.

What causes bat wings?

Loose skin and fat pockets on the upper arms are often the result of age, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. Genetics can also play a big role in the development of flabby arms. Bat wings are frustrating and can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. They may even limit your wardrobe options.

While you can tone the muscles in your upper arms with strength-training exercises, this will not get rid of excess skin or fat. One of the only ways to achieve contoured arms is through a cosmetic procedure.

How does nonsurgical skin tightening work?

Nonsurgical skin tightening uses simple devices to improve your body contours. Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates, P.A. combines radiofrequency and ultrasound energy in one treatment through the Accent Prime system. This process gradually tightens loose skin and targets unwanted fat cells.

Accent Prime can be used on the upper arms or other areas of the body that cause frustration or embarrassment. There is no downtime needed after treatment in Longview, and you can return to normal activities almost immediately.

What happens during a consultation?

Dr. Vozza will work with you to create a plan that meets your unique goals. Our team will assess your arms and ask about your desired results. We also ask about any medical conditions that may impact your treatment. Generally, most people are candidates for Accent Prime as long as they are in good health. A consultation is the best time to learn about our techniques and what you can expect from the results.

What are the benefits of Accent Prime?

Patients at Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates, P.A. love Accent Prime because it is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. There are no needles, no anesthesia, and no scars after treatment. The device can also be used on patients of all skin types and tones. Additional benefits of Accent Prime include:

  • Smoother and tighter arms: The Accent Prime system tightens loose skin on the arms and reduces the appearance of bat wings. Patients can show off their arms in sleeveless tops and other kinds of clothing.

  • Reduced fat: The ultrasound energy in Accent Prime breaks down unwanted fat cells, which are then removed through the body’s natural processes. This can contour your arms and improve their overall look.

  • Improved self-confidence: Feeling unhappy about your appearance can impact your confidence. Accent Prime can help you feel better about yourself and boost your self-esteem.
