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 have spent the last several years wanting to fix my nose but wasn't sure what I needed done exactly / was scared of the process. I decided to just get a consultation to see what my options were. Doctor Toledo's office made the process extremely easy from day one. They had flexibility in their appointments and did not make me wait at all. Doctor Toledo was able to pinpoint exactly what I needed done to my nose. It was nothing major, but it really made an impact on my breathing and physical appearance. I dedicated shortly after the consultation to go through with what he recommended. After that, his staff did everything to make it a smooth process for me. Ester at the front office sat down with me and went over everything I should expect and made sure I didn't leave the office with any questions. They did give me a ton of pre-op instructions but they were all easy and simple to follow. These instructions are a reason my surgery and healing process went so smoothly. On the day of the surgery I was greeted once again with several friendly staff members. They calmed my nerves by getting my excited about this change and I don't even remember falling asleep in the OR. The healing process was also painless. I was up and working the next business day and had no pain at all. The results of the surgery exceeded all of my expectations. I hardly had any swelling just one week after the surgery and the physical appearance was exactly what I wanted. I am also now able to breath better than I did before. If you are a person who is considering a nose job, I wouldn't even think of going to anyone else besides Doctor Toledo. You will be treated with the highest level of care and I promise- your results will be amazing! I am thankful for everyone in that office who made this a truly amazing experience."- MC / Other / Apr 28, 2021
"Truly Life-Changing -Best Decision I Ever Made!! I went in for a Septo-Rhinoplasty almost two months ago and am thrilled with my results! I'm almost thirty and had struggled with insecurity over my crooked nose since I was a child. It may seem a bit melo-dramatic but I always felt like my nose held me back from so much in life. I would hold back from wearing certain hairstyles because they'd make my nose stand out more and absolutely hated wearing my hair back in a bun or ponytail unless I was working out. It was hard for me to make eye contact with people because I felt like all they could see when they looked at me was my nose. Of course this isn't true, but it was hard to convince my mind otherwise when I believed that my nose was ugly. Silly as it may sound, I just wanted my nose to stop controlling my life! I wanted to be able to smile and not worry about how my nostrils flared out. I wanted to get dressed up for a fun night out and actually FEEL pretty rather than constantly carrying around the burden of self-consciousness. When I found Dr. Toledo, I was impressed by all the excellent reviews he had and how natural his work turned out. He is truly a kind and caring man who wants to change people's lives. His staff is equally caring and professional and I felt at ease throughout the whole process. Something very important to me as well was that he asked ME how I wanted my nose to look and worked with me to develop a realistic outcome based on my facial structure vs. telling me what HE wanted to do to my face. He is definitely an artist who values the desires and opinions of his patients. Two months post-op, I finally just feel free. I have a nice, smooth little sloped nose now and I absolutely love it! My confidence in interacting with people has soared and I can finally just go about my life normally as opposed to be constantly being preoccupied with my looks. I say this as someone who is NOT a superficial person. Having this procedure done was never about perfection and completely changing the way I looked. Rather, it was about altering one feature that brought a crippling amount of insecurity so that I could have a weight lifted off my shoulders. Trust me, my body has many imperfections including pointy ears and a crooked smile. But those are all imperfections I can deal with and even embrace as making me uniquely me. My nose was the one imperfection I could not embrace and I feel so relieved to finally just be fully confident and happy. Thank you to Dr. Toledo, Esther, and your amazing staff for changing my life!"- K.L. / Other / Mar 28, 2021
"I saw Dr. Toledo at least 10 years ago and knew that if I ever decided to have a neck lift, he would be the one I would choose to go to, even though we haven’t lived in the Dallas area for many years. Dr. Toledo and his staff are very professional and caring, and he is definitely someone you can trust working on your neck and face. Today I am 4 weeks post-op and am beyond thrilled with my results. I have no regrets whatsoever and would highly recommend Dr. Toledo to anyone seeking a cosmetic procedure."- D.S. / Google / Feb 23, 2021
"Dr. Toledo and his staff are extremely professional and welcoming. We cannot be more pleased with our experience and the outcome of the rhinoplasty done on my daughter just a month ago. Dr. Toledo delivered what he promised and my daughter is extremely pleased with her new look. The process and experience was exactly as Dr. Toledo and his staff explained to us during our pre-op appointment. They were very detailed about the whole process including the surgery itself, after surgery do’s & don’t and the healing process. We would like to express our gratitude & appreciation for Dr. Toledo’s professional expertise and his ability to make us feel at ease during the whole experience. We'll definitely recommend Dr. Toledo and his staff to our friends and family."- A.S. / Google / Feb 18, 2021
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

Toledo and his aesthetic team at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center are proud to offer this innovative procedure option for Dallas, TX patients.
