What is the best skin tightening treatment?

Skin tightening is a broad term. Treatments are used to erase fine lines and deep wrinkles from the face. This goal is achieved by peeling the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, and induce the fibroblasts to produce collagen. Collagen is the main protein that produces volume and supports the outer layer of skin. As we age the skin loses its elasticity and its fibroblast has 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.
