Procedures that tighten the face and neck include laser skin tightening, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Laser skin tightening is considered effective because it stimulates the production of collagen in the face, which ultimately has a tightening effect. This procedure is performed by a cosmetic dermatologist, according to Cosmetic Surgery Today.
Chemical peels have a more mild impact than laser surgery, particularly when performed at the superficial level. They are best for directly treating wrinkles, scarring and lesions on the skin.
Microdermabrasion also reduces lines and wrinkles by sanding away at the surface of the skin, and ultimately thickening collagen to tighten the skin on the face.
