Loose skin can occur on almost any area of the body, but some areas are more prone to loose skin than others. Loose skin on the thighs is a common complaint for a lot of men and women, and the upper leg is prone to storing excess fat and skin.
There are a number of factors that contribute to loose skin, with ageing being one of the main causes of loose skin on the thighs. As the body gets older, the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin are decreased. These are the proteins used by the body to keep the skin tight, taut and firm. Over time, the skin becomes saggier and looser because these proteins are not as prominent anymore. Loose skin on the thighs can also be caused by sun damage, as overexposure to the sun rays diminishes collagen levels.
Loose skin on the thighs is a completely normal issue that affects a large number of people, but for some it can lead to a lack of self-esteem and confidence. This drop in morale about their bodies can mean that many men and women are looking for treatments for loose skin on the thighs.

An effective loose skin treatment is Renuvion, which uses groundbreaking technology to firm and tighten the skin. A Renuvion wand is inserted subdermally through tiny incisions in the skin. This wand transmits a radiofrequency energy cooled by helium to the thighs and this contracts the tissue to boost collagen production. The increase in collagen levels results in the skin on the thighs being instantly firmed.
