Hi Anonymous, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one needs to examine the skin to determine the best treatment protocol. As a general rule the following has shown to increase the elasticity of the skin and promote collagen production:
Topical: NeoStrata Glycolic acid peels and topical products that contain alphahydroxy acids, polyhydroxy acids, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin E.
Lasers such as Fraxel, Lumenis Ultrapulse FX
IPL & Bi-Polar Radiofrequency: Syneron eMax & eLight
Skin Tightening: Syneron Refirm, Thermage, & Titan
Newer Technologies: Syneron eMatrix (Bi-Polar Radiofrequency) achieves skin coagulation and collagen and elastin stimulation without the use of laser and is safe on all skin types
