What is Nonsurgical Skin Tightening?
Nonsurgical skin tightening encourages firmer, healthier skin by allowing the body to create naturally occurring elastin and collagen in the skin. When you increase the amount of collagen and elastin in the body, you can improve the firmness of your skin. Dr. Manish Shah of Shah Aesthetic Surgery in Denver, CO uses a state-of-the-art treatment called Renuvion® with J-Plasma™ technology. This allows for better skin elasticity without surgery. This treatment is unique because plastic surgeons can apply controlled heat using a unique combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to specific areas just under the skin with amazing precision. This enables the skin to tighten. If surgery is not for you, but you want to improve the firmness and luster of your skin, then nonsurgical skin tightening at Shah Aesthetic Surgery in Denver, CO may be the perfect option for you.

Who Makes A Great Candidate For Treatment?
Over time, foundational skin nutrients can die off and your skin may lose firmness and possibly sag. Nonsurgical skin tightening with Renuvion J–Plasma technology can benefit many patients who want skin tightening results without invasive plastic surgery.

- Are in overall good health

- Want to firm up their skin
How Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Works
When undergoing this nonsurgical skin tightening procedure at Shah Aesthetic Surgery in Denver, CO, Dr. Shah creates a small entry point where a specialized device is placed just under the skin. Dr. Shah then releases a combination of both helium gas and radiofrequency (RF), creating energy that generates enough heat to expand the skin while the helium gas cools it, resulting in the tightening of the skin. This procedure can be used on almost any part of the body, including the abs, under the chin, upper arms, the neck, and thighs. The heat also promotes the body to produce collagen and elastin, which heals, tightens, and firms the skin even further.
After Your Session
Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided to you by Dr. Shah or his staff. You’ll probably notice some swelling and bruising, but this is normal and it goes away after a few days. We will also recommend that you wear a post-surgical garment for 6 – 8 weeks. Most of the patients of Shah Aesthetic Surgery report “feeling good” after a 3 – 5-day recovery following a Renuvion J–Plasma treatment. Although, recovery periods can vary according to other procedures that you may have had at the same time. One of the great things about the Renuvion skin tightening treatment is that you will be able to see results both immediately, and due to the collagen production in your body, continuing results in the months following.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical skin tightening cost?
The cost of a Renuvion J–Plasma nonsurgical skin tightening treatment may vary due to a number of factors. The size and the number of areas being treated and then if other treatments will be done in conjunction with this procedure are all factors contributing to the total cost. Dr. Shah or one of his highly qualified team members will go over a personalized treatment plan and the cost associated with it during your consultation. We will discuss payment options and medical financing if you need it.
What is collagen?
Collagen is an important protein that our body produces that aids in hydrating and healing the skin while keeping it elastic and firm. Over time and as the body ages, this important protein becomes depleted, which leads to loose and thinner skin. Nonsurgical skin tightening induces collagen production in your skin, rejuvenating back to a healthier and firmer state.
What areas can be treated?
Renuvion J-Plasma can be used virtually anywhere on the body that can benefit from skin tightening. This procedure is most common in the abdominal region among women addressing loose skin after pregnancy, but it is often used to tighten loose skin on the face, neck, arms, and thighs.
Can anyone perform this?
Renuvion is a unique procedure that requires specialized training. Dr. Shah and his cosmetic surgeons have been trained extensively on the procedure and are among the first to receive specialized training to use Renuvion J-Plasma in the state of Colorado.
Should I get nonsurgical or surgical skin tightening?
Many patients in the Denver, CO area desiring tighter and more toned skin consider this procedure over a traditional lift surgery. Although, this type of procedure is more ideal for younger men and women who desire more tone and tighter areas that are starting to experience some laxity.
