Transform Your Arm in Your Lunch Hour | Minneapolis

Many women in Minneapolis and St Paul hate the fat deposits and sagging in their upper arms, which is more noticeable in their middle age. It is also very difficult to hide.

Many of us have a short list of go-to exercises to help tone the upper arms. Although exercise can tone your muscles in the upper arms and shoulders, it usually won’t help much in reducing the fat and tightening skin.

Now, if women have an hour in their lunch time, they could have their arm transformed with lunch break lipo. Lunch Break Lipo with new Vaser or laser lipo technologies is a great way to achieve lean, sexy arms. Yes, in just an hour, we are able to have your upper arms transformed.

Most patients see results almost immediately and return to normal activities either right away or the next day. Vaser or laser are on the cutting edge of liposuction technologies as they are less invasive and gentler than traditional liposuction. Most patients only require one treatment.

You are able to schedule the lunch break lipo without consultation if you are healthy. A small percentage of cases with severe skin sagging may require the combination of liposuction with a mini or full arm-lift, we recommend you to have the complimentary consultation if you think you have a case with severe skin sagging.

Younger patients with tight skin in the arm may also consider Hi Def liposculpture for firm, sculpted athletic upper arms.

Shu Cosmetic Surgery Offers Blunt Tip Needle for Painless, Bruise-free Dermal Filler Injections

Filler injection is among the most common non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures in Minnesota. Traditionally, the procedure requires the use of sharp beveled hypodermal needle. It is typically painful while injecting in the facial skin, especially when a large volume of filler is used or when used in sensitive areas such as the lips because it is cutting through the skin and tissue. It also could potentially cut through small blood vessels which can cause bruising.

With the introduction of a blunt tip needle, also called a microcannula, it is possible to have a near painless and bruise-free procedure. Blunt tip needles for filler injections are similar to regular needles, but they are longer and more flexible, and they have blunt tips and ports on the sides allowing the filler to be distributed more evenly.
There are many advantages of a blunt tip needle for filler injections.

• Less pain: traditional filler injections need numerous needle sticks, but blunt tip needles need only two entry points for a typical filler injection. A longer, more flexible needle with a blunt tip is able to reach much larger areas.

• Bruise-free: The beauty of the blunt tip is it allows the needle to easily steer its way around blood vessels instead of cutting through them with traditional needles.

• More skin rejuvenation: Mechanical stimulation caused by the needle’s back-and-forth movement induces micro-trauma in local tissue, which stimulates fibroblast to produce new collagen and stimulates platelets to release growth factors.

The patients in Minneapolis and St Paul are thrilled that they can feel less pain and can say goodbye to bruises after injections. For more information on painless, bruise-free filler injections with blunt tip needles, please call 952-922-9999.
