What is knees loose skin?
After fat loss or any rapid weight loss, skin around the knees may appear loose and wrinkly. Knees loose skin is also a natural process of aging. Even with exercise it is very difficult to target to those quadriceps muscles of the front of the knee as well as muscles below the knee sufficiently to tighten that skin.
Sun damage contributes to the breakdown of collagen and elastin leaving your skin thinner and unable to ‘snap back.’

What can be done?
The Thermage CPT is a comfortable solution using radio frequency to stimulate collagen production to tighten sagging skin. Results are seen in 3-6 months and can last for years.
- Surgical Knee Lift
- Venus Viva Diamond Polar: A series of radio frequency treatments that tighten loose skin. No medication is required for pain management.
- Fraxel Laser: Although not indicated for skin tightening, the Fraxel laser can be used on most areas of the body to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen through fractional wound healing. This skin improvement and thickening of loose knee skin will provide a tightening effect. For best results, combine Thermage and Fraxel – Thermafrax.
