How does skin tightening work?

The basic premise of skin tightening and cellulite reduction treatments is the delivery of energy into the skin that heats the inner layer and stimulates collagen remodeling and tissue tightening. Many systems utilize either multi-polar, bi-polar, or uni-polar radiofrequency energy. Other systems use broadband infrared light pulses, either alone or in conjunction with vacuum technology and radiofrequency, that target water as its chromophore. To elaborate, a chromophore is anything that absorbs light, and each chromophore absorbs different light wavelengths at different degrees; thats how the infrared light used in these treatments specifically targets the deeper layer of the skin, while passing harmlessly through the outer layer.
