About SkIN TIGHTENING
As you begin to age, your body can start to lose collagen and elasticity, causing your skin to become thinner and looser with less resilience. To improve jowls, fine lines, wrinkles, deflated cheeks, and loose skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George A. Toledo and his skilled team provide nonsurgical skin tightening. This nonsurgical skin tightening treatment uses light technology to stimulate the body’s natural healing process in order to restore collagen production. Nonsurgical skin tightening is specifically designed for smaller areas, such as the face and neck, but it can be used on all areas of the body and requires no downtime afterward, making it a quick and convenient procedure performed at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center. Keep in mind that results are minor. For a more dramatic, long-term result, you may opt for a facelift. Contact our Dallas, TX facility to learn more and to schedule your initial consultation.
"So impressed with Dr. Toledo's rhinoplasty results! And even more impressed with how much my breathing has improved! I didn't even realize how blocked my breathing was until now, it really is life changing. Beautiful results. And a perfect little nose!"- J.D. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2019
"I would recommend Dr. Toledo to anyone. He is amazing at what he does and his staff was so welcoming and helpful every time I went in. I had rhinoplasty surgery and couldn’t be happier with the results."- B.S. / Google / Aug 08, 2019
"Let me start by saying if you are looking for a plastic surgeon, schedule a consultation with Dr. Toledo today! I had decided I was going to get a facelift two years ago, but wanted to find the right doctor and not rush into anything (even though I was eager to look younger again!) There are an almost overwhelming number of plastic surgeons in Dallas, let alone the state of Texas, so I was confident I would find a place. I had gone to three consultations at other offices and thought I would be happy at any of them, but when I came to see Dr. Toledo, I immediately saw the difference and knew this was the place I wanted to schedule my surgery. I felt at home right away - the office feels very comfortable and the staff were all friendly and warm to me. During the appointment, Dr. Toledo listened to my concerns and what I was hoping for in terms of results. He was honest and straightforward, explaining what was possible and what was not. He clearly has a great deal of experience and not only knows what is best, but took the time to explain what he could do for me. Just from the first appointment it is easy to see that Dr. Toledo cares about his patients and was not trying to sell me on different treatments or procedures. In fact, he even told me that I didn't need some of the other procedures that I was considering or thought I needed! He wanted me to be happy with the results, but made sure I had realistic goals. The day of my surgery I was very nervous, but as soon as I arrived to the office (the surgeries are done right in the office building!) everyone put me at ease. My recovery was manageable and the staff were incredibly patient with my questions and called multiple times to check on me. It has been 3 weeks since my surgery and I could not be happier! I feel like years have been erased off of my face and I have a new confidence that I haven't had in a long time! I don't shy away from the camera - I feel gorgeous! Thank you, Dr. Toledo."- L.J. / Google / Aug 01, 2019
"My 55 year old face looked like it was melting in the Texas heat. My forehead and eyes were droopy making me look tired all the time and my neck was hanging down like a turkey. Needless to say, it was time to talk about a facelift because I looked about 15 years older than I should. I have always heard Dr. Toledo’s name mentioned by ladies as the facelift king. I met with him and he recommended a face and neck lift, forehead lift and upper eyelid surgery. He also required I get medical clearance prior to surgery which I appreciated. I had my surgery in May. My recovery was quick, and I went back to work in 10 days. I had no discomfort or bruises but did have to keep ointment in my eyes for a couple of days. My results are perfect, I look like I’m forty again. My neck is smoothed with no sagging, but I love my forehead and eyes. People keep telling me my eyes look so bright and I look really happy. Well I look that way because of this incredible surgery but an excellent surgeon. Dr. Toledo and his staff are as good as it gets. After my experience with surgery and recovery I trust him completely."- B.T. / Google / Jul 25, 2019

Nonsurgical skin tightening is an ideal treatment for patients with:
- A desire for younger-looking skin
- Loose skin on the neck, face, or body
- Wrinkles and fine lines on the face
- A need for a procedure with no downtime
- A desire to avoid a more invasive surgical procedure
A nonsurgical skin tightening treatment is performed in one of our comfortable, spacious treatment rooms at our facility. The treatment area will be cleaned and prepped, and you will need to wear protective goggles to protect your eyes from the light. The handheld skin tightening device is then passed over your skin as it delivers light energy. The handpiece has a built-in contact cooling system to decrease any discomfort and protect the skin during the treatment, but you might experience a slight heating sensation. The procedure time will vary based on the size of the area being treated, but typically, the session lasts about 30 minutes.
What to Expect
Following a nonsurgical skin tightening treatment, you will be able to return to your normal daily routine. It is important that you wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure as your skin heals. You may be able to notice some differences in your skin, but optimal results typically take about 6 – 12 weeks to occur. For some patients, a series of treatments will yield the best outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Toledo and his team will create a treatment plan with the recommended number of sessions to create your ideal results.
Plan Your Procedure
Firm and Tighten
Without any necessary downtime or the worry of scarring that goes along with a surgical procedure, nonsurgical skin tightening may help you get the tighter and firmer skin you desire. Dr. George A. Toledo and his aesthetic team at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center are proud to offer this innovative procedure option for Dallas, TX patients.
