What can I do to fix loose skin?

Collagen and elastin are two vital proteins that contribute to the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Collagen provides structural support, while elastin allows the skin to stretch and bounce back. As we age, our body’s production of these proteins naturally decreases, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and the formation of wrinkles and sagging.

To combat the signs of ageing and improve skin appearance, it is essential to stimulate collagen and elastin production. At the Medisha Clinic, Dr. Nish offers advanced treatments that effectively address these needs, including PDO thread lifts, PDO rejuvenation threads, and Profhilo.

Professional treatments for Loose Skin

PDO Thread Lifts

PDO thread lifts are a non-surgical treatment offered at the Medisha Clinic by Dr. Nish, designed to tighten and contour the skin. This procedure uses dissolvable polydioxanone (PDO) threads inserted under the skin to lift sagging areas and stimulate collagen production. The result is a more youthful and firm appearance with minimal downtime. PDO thread lifts are suitable for various areas, including the face, neck, and jawline, providing a subtle yet effective lift.

PDO Rejuvenation Threads

At the Medisha Clinic, Dr. Nish also offers PDO rejuvenation threads, which work to enhance the skin’s texture and elasticity. Unlike PDO thread lifts, these threads are primarily used to rejuvenate the skin rather than lift it. The threads stimulate collagen production, improving skin firmness and reducing fine lines and wrinkles over time. This treatment is ideal for those looking to refresh their skin’s appearance and achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion.


Profhilo is an innovative injectable treatment available at the Medisha Clinic, performed by Dr. Nish, that hydrates and remodels the skin. Unlike traditional fillers, Profhilo spreads evenly beneath the skin, enhancing its hydration and elasticity. This treatment is particularly effective for addressing skin laxity and improving the overall quality of the skin on the face, neck, and hands. The result is a natural-looking, dewy, and revitalised complexion with minimal downtime.

Topical Treatments for Loose Skin

In addition to professional treatments and a collagen-boosting skincare routine, there are topical treatments that can help address loose skin. One popular option is the use of firming creams or lotions. These products often contain ingredients like caffeine, retinol, and antioxidants, which can temporarily tighten the skin and improve its appearance.

Another effective topical treatment for loose skin is the use of radiofrequency devices. These devices emit energy into the skin, heating the deeper layers and promoting collagen production. This can lead to a tightening effect and improve the overall firmness of the skin.

Lifestyle Changes to Prevent and Improve Loose Skin

Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to loose skin. By adopting certain lifestyle changes, you can reduce your chances of developing loose skin and improve its appearance if you already have it.

One crucial lifestyle change is maintaining a healthy diet and staying hydrated. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and omega-3 fatty acids can provide the essential nutrients needed for healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water also helps keep the skin hydrated and supple.

Regular exercise is another vital factor in preventing and improving loose skin. Incorporating both cardio and strength training exercises into your routine can help maintain muscle tone, which in turn supports the skin and prevents sagging. Focus on exercises that target the areas where you have loose skin, such as squats for the thighs or push-ups for the arms.

Skin Care Routine for Firming Loose Skin

To complement professional treatments, topical products, and lifestyle changes, establishing a consistent skincare routine is essential for firming loose skin. Here is a suggested routine that can help improve skin firmness:

  1. Cleanse: Start by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type. Avoid harsh cleansers that can strip away natural oils and further dry out the skin.
  2. Exfoliate: Regular exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, which can improve the appearance of loose skin. Choose a gentle exfoliant and use it 2-3 times a week.
  3. Tone: Apply a toner that contains ingredients like witch hazel or rose water to help balance the skin’s pH levels and tighten pores.
  4. Serum: Use a serum that contains collagen-boosting ingredients like retinol or peptides. Apply a few drops and gently massage into the skin.
  5. Moisturise: Finish off your routine with a moisturiser that is rich in hydrating ingredients. Look for products that also contain antioxidants to protect the skin from free radicals.

Remember to always apply sunscreen as the last step in your skincare routine during the day.
