Dr Gina’s Guide to Sagging Skin Treatments

Sagging skin is a common concern, occurring as a natural part of the ageing process as elastin and collagen production decrease, after significant weight loss, or following pregnancy. It can appear on most parts of the body including the face, neck, arms, and stomach, and can be accelerated by a range of external factors such as UV exposure and pollutants, and lifestyle choices including a poor diet and smoking.

Whilst there are skincare products that target sagging skin, treatments can provide more effective and more noticeable results. If you’re looking to boost your confidence and restore a refreshed, firmer, and lifted appearance I’ve put together a list of innovative and non-invasive treatments that can help below.

Best Treatments for Sagging Skin


This unique technology bridges a gap in aesthetic medicine, allowing us to address deeper facial structures including muscles that contribute to the appearance of ageing and skin laxity for improved results and a painless lift. A much loved treatment at Ocean Cosmetics for a reason, this non-invasive technology combines radio frequency (RF) and high-intensity electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) to tighten the skin and enhance the facial muscles. This is ideal to target the forehead, cheeks, and corners of the mouth, restoring volume, plumping the skin, and boosting collagen and elastin production with little to no downtime.

What is an Emface treatment like?

This treatment takes 20-30 minutes, and feels like a warm and gentle facial massage with soothing pulsations. It’s a perfect lunchtime treatment that supports a refreshed complexion whilst leaving you feeling relaxed, all without any downtime or aftercare required.

How many sessions are needed and when will I see results?

We typically recommend a series of four Emface sessions, however additional treatments may be required depending on each individual patient’s goals. Optimal results are typically visible 2-3 months following your last session.


EndyMed Skin Tightening

This treatment uses signature 3DEEP radio frequency energy to stimulate natural collagen production, improve skin elasticity and structure, and tighten loose skin. This treatment is available to target skin laxity on the face (as our EndyMed Skin Tightening treatment) and the body (as our EndyMed Body Tightening treatment).

What is an EndyMed Skin Tightening treatment like?

This treatment takes 30-45 minutes, where a RF handpiece is used to administer gradual heat into the skin and stimulate elastin fibres. There is no downtime, and no numbing required beforehand.

How many sessions are needed and when will I see results?

We recommend a series of six treatments, with results seen instantly before they lightly fade, and optimal results appear after around 28 days. This treatment lasts three to six months.



This treatment harnesses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to tighten, firm, and lift the skin. HIFU waves target the superficial muscular aponeutoric system (SMAS), simultaneously heating the tissue which tightens and firms whilst promoting collagen regeneration. It is ideal to target sagging skin on the face, jowls, and chin whilst softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is an ULTRAcel Q+ treatment like?

This treatment takes 30-60 minutes with no downtime.

How many sessions are needed and when will I see results?

Results are visible immediately after the treatment, with collagen regeneration occurring after 2-3 months and lasting up to 6 months.


Exion Body

The Exion platform is the newest addition to the BTL family and a recent addition to our clinic. This platform has three treatment types, including Exion Body which targets sagging skin with the added benefit of facilitating fat reduction of up to 22% in hard to reach areas. This treatment brings two modalities together including Monopolar RF and ultrasound to tighten skin by promoting hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin production for up to an 85% improvement in skin laxity. This is ideal to address the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.

What is an Exion Body treatment like?

This is a comfortable procedure where patients may experience warmth in the treatment area. There is no downtime.

When will I see results?

Results are visible around one month following your Exion treatment, with optimal results seen after three months.
