Saggy, Baggy, Flabby Arms Tucson

If you have batwings that you hate, our new technology to help tighten skin without lasers or surgery may be the thing that you are looking for. Of course your arms will look better if they have lean muscles in them. As we age, we lose fat and muscle mass along with bone mass. When that happens skin doesn’t have much to “hold onto” so it appears to be saggy.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, it’s found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. It is the substance that holds the body together. Collagen forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. Collagen grows in humans until we reach our mid 30’s. Production then slows down and we recycle it. As we age, our skin takes longer and longer to regenerate itself and move from the dermis, where live skin cells are made, to the epidermis, (the skin that we see) which is ready to sluff off as it is dead cells. The only way that you’re body naturally makes new collagen is if you injure yourself and the body heals it.

When you stimulate collagen production, you are building new healthy skin cells again. If you have a major injury, your body produces a lot of collagen in the area. This is what causes scarring. If you have small or micro-injuries, you will stimulate small amounts of collagen that don’t bunch up, therefore leaving you with tighter more toned skin.

This is what Collagen Induction Therapy is all about. (CIT) There are many ways to induce collagen production. Exfoliation, peels, laser treatments, cosmetic acupuncture, skin needling, derma-rolling and plasma arc treatments are some of the ways to produce new collage.  Except for laser, we offer all of these treatments.  The plasma arc is the latest technology used at our spa.

What’s the process?

The electric arc produces a short flash when the probe comes close to the skin. This flash causes a micro burn to the epidermal layer (top dead layer) of your skin. The microdamage that was intentionally caused by the flash registers in your brain and the brain sends out a message that it needs to repair that damage. It produces collagen and elastins and makes your skin newer, healthier and more toned and tightened. The treatment “burn” causes a temporary de-hydration of the skin; this results in immediate tissue retraction and lifting. The treatment is topical and is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.

Once the area starts to heal, collagen and elastins start to grow giving the new skin, a tighter, more toned look, taking years from your appearance. Unlike surgery, there will be NO scars after the healing period.  If you have serious sagging from weight loss or advanced aging, brachioplasty (arm) surgery may be what you need. But, if you are patient and want to see continual improvement in the tone of your arms as collagen forms, give us a call.

All appointments are final and cannot be rescheduled without 48 hours notice. Please double-check your schedule to ensure that you are available during the time of your booking. Appointments also require a $100 non- refundable deposit to secure your spot. This deposit is then deducted from your final amount on the day of your procedure. A patch test and aftercare products are also a part of your first visit. Your procedure will be performed AFTER your patch test has successfully healed.


Deposits are forfeited if the client does not to show up to their appointment or cannot commit to their original scheduled appointment without 48 hours notice.  Anyone who is more than 15 minutes late for their appointment may be asked to reschedule, and it will be considered a cancellation. That much lost time will not allow the technician to complete the procedure properly. The time cannot be “made up” by rushing or omitting important steps.  

For consultations and appointments, call 520 275-4510 for Tucson’s only plasma fibroblast spa! It is necessary to do a patch test for each visit to see how that area will react to the treatment. The healing process will show how you well reacted and will give us a better idea of how many sessions you will need to achieve your goals. Your first actual treatment will be about 2 weeks from your consultation and patch test. Please remember this info as you are scheduling your appointment time.

We do offer discounts on packages.
