Saggy skin

Supple and firm skin has the ability to stretch and effortlessly revert back to its original form. But when this inherent ability wanes, the skin begins to sag.

Saggy skin: what you need to know

Saggy skin can appear on the face and body, causing such concerns as jowls, a sagging neck, bingo wings and loose skin on the stomach. There's many different options on the table to reduce the appearance of sagging skin. But the treatment largely depends on the severity of the sagging. 


At our award-winning London clinic, we offer effective, non-invasive, non-surgical treatments to help firm up the skin. During your no obligation consultation, we'll create a treatment plan to suit you and your skin concerns. If a surgical procedure would be better suited to treat your sagging, loose skin, our team of specialists will be honest and open about the best route for you.

Saggy and loose skin treatments

If skin laxity is too severe for a non-surgical treatment, surgery may be the best way forward. During your no obligation consultation, our specialists will assess your skin to see if a non-surgical treatment could be the perfect match. If it is, we'll create a bespoke treatment plan to suit your needs using one of our innovative technologies. These include: 

  • Endolift:
    Endolift is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a laser fiber to tighten the skin. This treatment is fully customised to the individual. Its laser generates heat beneath the skin to target fibroblasts responsible for collagen production. The skin is left firmer, tighter and rejuvenated. 


  • Ultraformer
    By utilising High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), an Ultraformer treatment tackles sagging skin effectively. It achieves this by delivering precise and targeted pulses of ultrasound to the areas needing attention. This process, known as thermal coagulation, initiates denaturation of existing collagen fibers. This stimulation prompts the regeneration of new collagen (the protein that helps keep your skin firm and plump).


  • Infini 
    The Infini uses radio-frequency to tighten the skin. As we age, our collagen and elastin levels deplete which causes the skin to sag. Radio-frequency stimulates collagen production at deep levels of the skin, which gives an overall tightening and lifting of the skin.

What causes saggy skin?

As we get older, our skin doesn't snap back like it used to. This is because the body stops producing as much collagen and elastin, proteins produced in the dermis, causing the skin to become less firm and ultimately sag. Add UV exposure, a poor diet and excessive alcohol consumption to the equation, collagen and elastin production can decrease even further. Repeated facial expressions and sleeping positions can also affect the elasticity of your skin, increasing the chances of saggy skin on the face as time goes on.

Weight loss
But that's not to say all sagging skin issues are caused by ageing. A big contributing factor to saggy skin is weight loss. Those who lose a significant amount of weight are often left with loose skin, especially if the pounds are dropped in a short space of time.

Women can experience saggy, loose skin, especially on the stomach, during and after pregnancy. 

Smoking not only harms your lungs, but also affects your skin. Nicotine reduces blood flow to the top layer of skin, restricting its oxygen supply, and chemicals in the smoke damage collagen and elastin, heightening susceptibility to skin that droops and looks older.

In rare cases
Saggy skin is also a symptom in rare cases where individuals suffer from granulomatous slack skin (GSS) or Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS).
