Causes of loose skin

Sagging skin and loss of definition can appear anywhere on the body and face, most common areas are the neck, abdomen and sagging skin on arms. One of the main causes of loose skin is age. As we age, our skin tends to lose collagen and elastin, the supportive connective tissue that makes it look firm, plump and youthful.

This process can result in sagging skin around the face, neck and body. In addition to this, facial muscles can weaken with age and eventually cause a drop, resulting in loose skin. Sun exposure can also reduce skin’s elasticity. Finally, sudden weight loss, especially large amounts of weight over a short period of time, can be dramatic causes of loose skin, sagging skin on arms, abdomen and other areas.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

Temporal Lift

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
