How does self-adhesive tape that is placed over the wound pull the wound edges together?

In brief: It may

pull the edges closer in opposition but certainly does not guarantee that the wound will heal.
depending on when in the course this was done it may cause more harm than good by introducing infection or causing involution of the wound edge.
