"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

"I couldn't be happier with not only my results but they way I was taken care of by Dr. Soto and his staff. I searched for months for a plastic surgeon. After finding Dr. Soto I knew he was the right one. I drive 3 hours round trip to see Dr. Soto and I wouldn't have picked anyone else. I have had 2 surgeries by him and both were a complete success with great results. They answered all my questions, took the time to take my numerous phone calls and emails and never made me feel like I was bothering them. I followed their Pre and post-op instructions and have had no complications. Their night nurse is amazing and so caring. I truly feel like they I am family. I would recommend Dr. Soto for all your needs."- V.C. / Yelp / Nov 29, 2019

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.
