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
"Dr. Toledo and his staff were incredible! They were so helpful throughout the entire process. They answered any & all questions I had before and after my surgery. Dr. Toledo gave me realistic expectations of what this surgery would be like which was helpful while recovering. He worked with me on perfecting what I wanted from the surgery and delivered exactly what we had decided together. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery, it is everything I wanted and more. I could not recommend this office enough!!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"I have been going to Dr. Toledo for almost 30 years. I trust him and I will be going to him in the near future, since I am getting older. He makes you look you very best. I recommend him to family and friends."- E.C. / Healthgrades / Jun 12, 2020
"No More Fears That I Am Part Bird! And I Can Breath Better, Too! - First things first, just get it done. If you are here reading this, the only advice I have is: DO IT! Do not wait. I HAD a big hook nose with a bulbous tip. My profile was hideous - I never, ever uploaded any pictures of my profile. When I got my hair done recently, the stylist loved the result and wanted to upload them to her web portfolio. Luckily for me, she was kind enough not to upload the ones where my nose would stick out. As in, the shots were only of the back of my head. I turned my head slightly to each side to catch the light. With most folks, their nose would not stick out past their blown-out hair. Mine did, and it ruined the shots because all you saw was this big beautiful hair and a massive, long, hook nose. Speaking of hair, I could never cut my hair. Most people with bobbed hair have elegant noses, just because it attracts so much attention to your face. Short story short: it was bad. With all that said, I am thrilled I chose an EXPERIENCED surgeon!!! My nose had to be broken TWICE, which is not a common occurrence for this procedure. I had done three consultations, and Dr. Toledo was the final one. The other two surgeons were young and had excellent credentials, but I just knew my nose was going to be complicated - and it was. There was more to my nose that met the eye (more on that in a minute), and I cannot imagine what someone less experienced would have done halfway through the surgery when they realized the initial break was not going to be enough to generate the desired results. That is the kind of thing you can only handle easily with decades of experience. No amount of textbook learning would save you here. My surgery was long, too. He operated on it until it was perfect. I am so, so amazingly grateful that I put my nose in expert hands. Best decision! Apparently, due to the size of my nose, you could not tell that it was quite crooked on the inside. I got a great bonus - I CAN BREATH! While fixing my massively complex nose, Dr. Toledo performed a septoplasty. WHAT!?! There is a stark difference in my airflow before and after the surgery! I could not run before the surgery, and now cardio is much easier for me. He is an ENT, after all! Just another reason to pick him. I hope this review inspires you to pass on the less experienced surgeon and pick the experienced ENT who knows what he can deliver for you. He will not promise anything he cannot provide. The photo of the 'after' he generates is spot on (my actual is better). I wanted a copy of it so I could compare the before and after, but all I have to do is look in the mirror. He is an artist. My dad is super happy with the result and says my face looks the way it always should have."- N.R. / RealSelf / May 22, 2020
"Finally my nose looks how I have always felt it should - Dr. Toledo and his staff were very helpful, informative, and caring. I am a nurse who had two rhinoplasties done by a different surgeon 10 years and very unhappy with the results. Dr. Toledo confidently said he would be able to fix my nose. Finally my nose looks how I have always felt it should and it looks completely natural. I would highly recommend Dr. Toledo for a rhinoplasty as he is very skilled in this area."- A. / RealSelf / May 05, 2020
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Ideal Candidates
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
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Procedure Technique
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 with Nonsurgical Skin Tightening
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.
