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.
"My Muscle Wall Gave Way Giving my Abdomen an Unsightly Large Buldge - Denver, CO - I met Dr Shah in 2007 when he did a face lift for me. I was really happy with the results. When I found out no amount of diet and exercise would remedy the problem with my abdomen I contacted him. and even through I no longer live in Colorado, I knew he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery.I am a little over four weeks after surgery and I am thrilled with the results. I am 66 years old and healing well and now I have the tummy I have dreamed of having.Thank you Dr Shah I appreciate your skill and care!"- D. / RealSelf / Sep 05, 2015
"23 Year Old BBL Amid COVID - This site has been so helpful to me in conducting my research about a BBL. Once I decided on it, this site also helped me to find a doctor with results I liked! I had the surgery for a BBL (with tummy lipo) and neck lipo on June 12, 2020 and it's currently 9 days post-op. There will be more attachments to this review (including pictures), but I wanted to get the baseline set up. The reason I wanted to go through with this was because I saw women on here in their 40s who said they wish they did it sooner and that made me feel motivated to follow my dreams. I have never been embarrassed of my body, and I don't think I had a bad body. This surgery was just a way for me to enhance my body in a way I knew I would love. I do workout and eat healthy (this means healthy and not extreme dieting), but these are the kind of results I couldn't get at the gym. I am very happy with my decision and there will be more updates to come!"- W. / RealSelf / Jun 21, 2020
"The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I got a rhinoplasty with Dr. Shah about two years ago. From the beginning until now I've had a great experience. Both he and his staff are caring and helpful, I never felt in the dark about anything along this journey. In addition, they never pushed me to get other procedures that I wasn't interested in. The surgery was a breeze and the recovery was easy - I did the whole recovery with Ibuprofen with minimal pain. I am very happy with my results and feel much more confident in my body. I would absolutely suggest Dr. Shah to anybody looking for plastic surgery and would return to him if I decided to have more done."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 01, 2020

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

- Are experiencing the beginnings of wrinkles and fine lines
- 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.
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening 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.
Nonsurgical Skin Tightening 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.
