Will microneedling helps with underarms loose skin?
I have severe loose skin after lipo and my country do not have a specialist in brachioplasty. I am trying all means to tighthen my under arms loose skin. RF does not seems to help and its is so expensive. If it does help, how do I use it on my under arms? Thanks.

I agree with Dr. Blinski. While theoretically it may provide and increased dermal thickening and potential tightening, in practice you would most likely not even notice the difference.
