Bra Rolls

Bra rolls refer to the folds of skin and fat that can appear around the upper back and under the arms, often visible when wearing a bra or tight clothing. They can be bothersome for many people, but there are several non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments available to reduce their appearance.

Non-Invasive or Minimally Invasive Treatments

1. CoolSculpting (Cryolipolysis)

  • How it works: This procedure freezes fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.
  • Effectiveness: Can reduce fat in targeted areas like bra rolls; multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.

2. Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments

  • How it works: RF energy heats the skin and underlying tissue to stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and reduce cellulite.
  • Effectiveness: Can visibly reduce cellulite over several sessions; results may vary.

3. Ultrasound Fat Reduction

  • How it works: Uses focused ultrasound energy to break down fat cells, which are then metabolized by the body.
  • Effectiveness: Effective for reducing localized fat pockets; multiple treatments may be required.

4. Laser Lipolysis (SculpSure)

  • How it works: Laser energy targets and heats fat cells, causing them to break down and be absorbed by the body.
  • Effectiveness: Can result in fat reduction and improved contour with minimal downtime.
