What is the best skin tightening treatment

Skin tightening is a broad term that includes using all available technologies to erase the file line and deep wrinkles from the face.  This goal is achieved by Peeling the skin outer layer, the epidermis, and induce the fibroblasts to produce for collagen. Collagen is the main protein that produces volume and supports the out layer of the skin. As we age the skin loses it elasticity and its fibroblast will have less ability to produce this natural filler. Other factors such as photoaging by extended sun exposure, smoking, poor skin care, and hygiene impact skin well-being.
