Airbrush Tanning

An experienced airbrush-tanning specialist can help you accentuate your biceps and forearms. By making certain areas darker than others, it can make it appear as if your muscles are bigger in those areas.

Jennifer Aniston’s airbrush tanner at Salon Republic does this and says, “….you could actually leave the peaks of the muscles lighter than the indentations. Using a darker tan or a heavier spray, I’d spray a darker line along those indentations and have the person flex their arms in specific ways, so that those areas didn’t get too dark.”

Makeup for Contouring

Just as you can contour your face with makeup, you can do the same with your biceps and shoulders. Jamie Kern Lim, the founder of It Cosmetics, says to use shimmer on the deltoids, and use bronzer where the shoulders separate. As long as you blend the shimmer and bronzer, she swears that no one will be able to tell the difference.


Smartlipo is an option for women who don’t have months to sculpt their arms. This laser liposuction device melts fat from the treated areas, which can get rid of flab that has accumulated over the winter. A small cannula is used to remove much of the melted fat; the body flushes out the remaining fat cells. The laser also smooths and tightens the skin in the treated areas to create a nearly flawless look.

At our plastic surgery practice, we use the maximum amount of laser joules, which help us target areas with the right amount of power. Not many surgeons use this level of joules, but we do because we believe it is the best way to contour the treated areas.
