Women in Sonoma and Marin County are no longer stuck hiding unsightly areas of cellulite under clothing. Plastic Surgery Associates can restore the smooth skin and taut shape they desire with NuEra™ Tight skin tightening and cellulite treatment. Unlike many traditional procedures, NuEra can successfully improve the appearance of stubborn, lumpy areas of fat without invasive surgery or a long recovery. Using high-powered, temperature controlled radio frequencies, Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales provide dramatic results, significantly improving skin laxity and reducing the appearance of cellulite, from head to toe.
NuEra Tight from Award-Winning Plastic Surgery Associates
NuEra™ Tight, by Lumenis, is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment designed to smooth frustrating areas of fatty tissue, while tightening lax skin to create a more contoured appearance. The innovative treatment utilizes state-of-the-art radio frequency heat that warms both the superficial and deep layers of tissue. This concentrated heat starts the collagen regeneration process, leaving sagging tissues looking taut and flat. Treatment with the NuEra system is comfortable and safe, needing no downtime and with no risk for serious complications.
NuEra Tight can provide significant results almost anywhere on the body, including:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Back fat
- Delicate skin around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks
Using powerful, temperature-controlled radio frequency controls, NuEra heats each specific area to the precise temperature for optimal results. The ability to treat multiple areas of the body makes it an excellent option as a standalone treatment. NuEra can also be used in conjunction with other treatments such as liposuction or a lift procedure.
Who is a good candidate for NuEra?
NuEra’s unique radio frequency system makes the treatment extremely safe and effective for most patients. Almost anyone unhappy with unsightly areas of lax skin and cellulite that proves to be resistant to diet and exercise can benefit from NuEra. An ideal patient will be in overall good health, understand the NuEra technique, and hold realistic expectations for the final results. However, not everyone makes a good candidate for NuEra. Although the technique is a trusted method for tightening skin and smoothing cellulite, the procedure is not for everyone. Those with moderate to severe loss in skin elasticity may require a surgical procedure to achieve the desired results.
A confidential consultation will be arranged with the experts at Plastic Surgery Associates prior to scheduling NuEra Tight. After performing a skin assessment, reviewing your medical history, and discussing your desired aesthetic results, Dr. Furnas or Dr. Canales will determine if NuEra could be the right option for your needs. If so, your surgeon will create a personalized treatment plan, complete with any additional techniques necessary to reach your desired results.
The NuEra Procedure:
As the top provider of aesthetic services in California, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales perform all of their procedures in Plastic Surgery Associates’ state-of-the-art office. Each NuEra session will take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the needs of each individual patient. As an almost painless procedure, no anesthesia is needed during a NuEra session. The Lumenis applicator has been meticulously designed for optimal skin contact, gradual heating, and ideal patient comfort. Once the NuEra applicator has been placed on the target area, the heat will gradually increase, allowing the patient to slowly get accustomed to the change in temperature. Although the treatment causes little to no pain, patients will have the chance to discuss the option of a topical anesthetic with Dr. Furnas or Dr. Canales.
Results from NuEra Tight:
Some patients may notice an immediate improvement in skin tightness immediately after their NuEra treatment. However, full benefits of the skin tightening and cellulite reducing procedure will take several weeks to appear as the body’s production of collagen and elastin increases. Over the following two to three months, the results from NuEra will continue to improve.
The youthful benefits from NuEra Tight can be long-lasting, however, they are not permanent. A personalized treatment plan, including follow-up NuEra sessions, can keep your body looking contoured and smooth. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales have extensive cosmetic surgery experience, giving them the knowledge and skill necessary to ensure optimal results for years to come.

What is NuEra?
NuEra Tight from Lumenis is a unique, nonsurgical treatment that can significantly tighten lax skin and improve the appearance of cellulite almost anywhere on the body. Using temperature-controlled radio frequency heating, NuEra heats both the superficial and deep layers of tissue, ramping up the body’s collagen production. This safe and effective treatment can restore a taut, smooth appearance to skin that has lost its youthful elasticity. As two of the country’s top plastic surgeons, Dr. Heather Furnas and Dr. Francisco Canales are excited to offer this state-of-the-art technique in their California practice.
How does NuEra improve the appearance of cellulite?
NuEra’s temperature controlled heating precisely warms targeted tissues. This localized heat encourages the body’s natural production of collagen. Over the coming months, as the collagen stores increase, tissues will become stronger and tighter. Areas of cellulite will continue to look smoother.
Where do Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales perform NuEra Tight?
NuEra Tight is performed in a private treatment room in one of the two Plastic Surgery Associates locations. With offices in Santa Rosa and Novato, Plastic Surgery Associates is convenient for everyone in Marin or Sonoma County.
Why choose Plastic Surgery Associates for my NuEra Tight treatment?
Plastic Surgery Associates was founded by board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales, in 1992. Since that time, the surgeons have emerged as two of the leading aesthetic providers in the United States. With over 30 years of cosmetic and plastic surgery experience, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales offer the safest surgical and noninvasive treatments, ensuring you will get the best possible results from your NuEra Tight session.
Am I a good candidate for NuEra?
The ideal candidate for NuEra will be in generally good health, unhappy with cellulite or aging, lax skin. A patient should be committed to the treatment plan and hold realistic expectations for their results. Those with severe tissue laxity may not make a good candidate for the procedure, as this skin may not bounce back. During a private consultation, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales can help to determine if NuEra Tight is right for you.
How soon can I expect to see results from NuEra?
While some patients will notice results immediately, the full benefits of treatment will continue to improve over the coming months. Over time, as the body’s collagen production increases, the skin will continue to look smoother and firmer.
Will I need more than one NuEra treatment?
More than one NuEra Tight session may be needed to achieve the desired results. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales will create a personalized treatment plan that outlines the number of recommended treatments. While the results of treatment are not permanent, a repeat session can further extend the benefits of NuEra.
Are there any side-effects from NuEra Tight?
NuEra is considered a safe treatment for lax skin and cellulite. Cleared by the FDA, NuEra Tight uses Automatic Power and Impedance Control (ASPIC), delivering precise heating to the skin’s surface for consistent, predictable results. Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales, both board-certified plastic surgeons, are among the top aesthetic providers in the country, focusing on patient safety and exceptional results.
How much does NuEra cost?
The cost of each NuEra session will vary according to the patient, based on the size of the area treated and the extent of correction. The only way to determine the exact price for your desired results will be to schedule an in-office consultation appointment with Dr. Furnas or Dr. Canales. During this appointment, our patient coordinator will review all of your payment choices.
Can I finance my NuEra Tight procedure?
To make paying for your NuEra treatment easier, everyone has the option of paying with cash and all major credit cards, as well as healthcare financing. Financing your procedure through CareCredit or Prosper Healthcare Lending allows you to set up a comfortable payment plan designed around your needs with low or zero interest.
