Time &/or Removal: Adds sell "illusions of significant" (actually slight) skin tightening via heat (applied with a laser; an expensive way to apply heat to below skin surface level inducing some scaring/tightening). With time, if skin not continuously stretched, it will partially contract. However the only way for marked reduction is removal, all at once (risky) or incrementally (safer yet more time & expense).
