"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Dr. Soto was by far the best choice I made in this process. I felt completely trusting in him and his staff to help me achieve the results I have always wanted. The facilities, the nurses, and everything else was exactly what I hoped for this whole time. Dr. Soto knew exactly what I wanted my end results to be, better than I even did. I could not be happier with the final outcome! I feel so confident and happy with myself and I owe it to him!"- B.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 25, 2017
"I had a mommy makeover (breast augmentation, breast lift, and full tummy tuck) done by Dr. Soto. I am more than thrilled with the results. He is an excellent surgeon and spends a lot of time with you during post-op appointments to answer your questions and concerns. He is definitely one of the best surgeons in the Orlando area."- S. / Healthgrades / Jun 20, 2017
"I came in for a second opinion on a previous breast augmentation. I was so unhappy with my previous results and now I am so happy with my new results. Dr. Soto is very professional and took the time to listen to my concerns and my needs. As a result I have a more natural look and feel, which is what I wanted. I highly recommend anyone to come in and meet with Dr. Soto and his team. You will be very happy with the results. Thanks Dr. Soto!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 19, 2017

About Mixto Technology
The MiXto is a carbon dioxide laser that uses “fractions” or skips of light to target skin tissue. This technology enables the technician to have a great amount of control without harming surrounding tissue. The intervals of light provide a calculated heating and cooling energy that produce less pain and require less recovery time than other skin tightening treatments. This process stimulates collagen production, smoothes wrinkles, improves brown spots, and tightens the skin.
During/After the Procedure
The treatment area will first be gently cleansed from any makeup, lotions, or oils prior to the MiXto laser procedure. Typically, patients don’t find the discomfort of the MiXto to be intolerable, but an local anesthetic can be applied to ease discomfort. Treatments usually take 30 minutes and once the session is complete, a protective ointment is immediately applied to the skin. Although patients can return to their daily activities after their treatment, they should refrain from direct sun exposure to protect their skin. Some results are instantly visible, but optimal results will be visible within 4 – 6 months.

Skin Tightening FAQs
How is Mixto different?
What sets MiXto apart from other laser tightening procedures is its high-end technology that enables greater results in a shorter period of time. A single MiXto treatment takes about 30 minutes where as other laser treatments tend to be at least one hour. The MiXto is also less invasive than other laser treatments and offers shorter recovery periods.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein found in the skin, bones, muscles, and tendons of the body. It provides structural support, strength, and elasticity. As we age, the production of collagen declines and therefore, leads to saggy skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of elasticity. MiXto stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, which helps to strengthen and maintain the integrity of the skin.
Patients will be given an Aquaphor® ointment to apply to their skin for the next several days following their procedure to ensure skin protection. They are also highly encouraged to refrain from outdoor activities that will expose their skin to direct sunlight. Frequent applications of sun protection are also very important to maintain results.
