How to Tighten Skin

The epidermis (outer layer of skin) sloughs off and, as a result, the new epidermis is smoother, tighter, and more even in skin tone. Furthermore, the dermis (deeper layer of skin) produces more collagen leading to thicker, stronger, and firmer skin support. With fractional CO2 laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.
