No need to explain what it is. Everyone knows and no one likes it.

Presently, the most popular approaches are Fotona and Ulthera, especially for the neck and jaw line, Thermage for general facial tightening and Endymed Intensif for skin tautness.

Loose Body Skin

The most common body skin concern is loose inner upper arm and inner upper thigh skin, virtually always in women. Next in line are “jelly belly” skin and wrinkles above the knees.

One of the best ways to tackle loose belly skin is Thermage in combination with PDO threads. Knees and inner thighs have shown a moderate response to Ulthera, especially in combination with a radiofrequency device. Loose arm skin needs a combo of Ulthera, fractional resurfacing and, occasionally, diluted fillers such as Sculptra, injected with a microcannula, as well as PDO threads.


The most common areas affected by skin laxity are the inner upper arms and inner upper thighs, particularly in women. Other areas include the belly, often referred to as 'jelly belly', and wrinkles above the knees.

For loose belly skin, we highly recommend Thermage, an advanced treatment known for its effectiveness in tightening and smoothing the belly area.

Yes, skin laxity above the knees can be treated. We have seen moderate success with Ulthera, especially when combined with a radiofrequency device, in improving the appearance of this area.

For loose arm skin, we often use a combination of treatments including Ulthera, fractional resurfacing, and occasionally, diluted fillers like Sculptra, which are injected with a microcannula for a more targeted approach.

Ulthera uses ultrasound technology to target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production. This results in a natural lifting and tightening effect, making it an effective treatment for skin laxity.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort during these treatments. We take every precaution to ensure your comfort and can use topical anesthetics if necessary.

The duration of results can vary depending on the individual and the treatment used. Generally, results can last for several months to a couple of years. We recommend a consultation to discuss what you can expect based on your specific condition and treatment plan.
