Our expert says:
I'm not a fan, I wouldn't spend that money on it, because a) there's no evidence that it works, and b) there's lots to say that other ways of training, that are cheaper, work better. And you're already doing them, so rather don't go there!
With respect to spot reduction, this is the principle obviously that explains why the gadgets don't work, but your question is a little different - what you're looking at doing is toning and that is possible, definitely. You just need a session of arm exercises - bicep curls, dips, tricep pull downs, shoulder press etc - the gym will have dozens of these exercises and perhaps see a trainer for assistance on the specifics. The importnat thing is to avoid lifting heavy - that's what causes muscle bulk, and so if you stick to lighter weights, and do more reps, then the outcome shifts to toning. So get a weight that you can lift comfortably 15 times, and do 2 or 3 sets of 15 reps, that should do it
