Hi. Welcome. The skin of the outer aspect of your arms is pigmented. It is normal phenomenon in Asians. These lines are called the pigmentary demarcation lines or Futcher's Lines. It is normal thing and does not need treatment. Moreover, no treatment is effective as it is just a normal physiologic variation. I advise you not to go for any Laser n all for this.
