About RF Skin Tightening
For ARTisan patients who are looking for a conservative non-surgical approach to correct loose, sagging skin on the body or face, we can offer radio frequency (RF) skin rejuvenation to tighten the skin. Best for mild to moderate skin looseness, RF skin tightening uses powerful energies to target the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the body's natural collagen production. As the collagen levels increase, patients usually see healthier skin with better elasticity, fewer wrinkles, and less damage. At our office in Sioux Falls, SD, our providers use the ThermiSmooth or the Thermi250 Systems (high-powered, noninvasive, temperature-controlled RF technologies) to help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
"I had BBL therapy this morning. What a great experience! Dr Powell and the entire team were fantastic. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. I was very comfortable during the procedure, and was able to go to work as soon as we were done. I will be going back for sure! I highly recommend Artisan and Dr Powell."- M.L. / Google / Jul 18, 2019
"The space is beautiful and my facial was unbelievably relaxing. Anna did a really fantastic job teaching me all about the different products she used during my facial. She customized treatment specifically for my skin and recommended product for me to use at home. I am loving the way my skin feels!"- L.A. / Google / Dec 19, 2019
"I had my first visit to Artisan yesterday. I am a 55 year old female and considered Botox injections for a while now. I did Dysport not Botox and I am very happy with the results. Aging is difficult and if you are considering doing something for yourself, I would highly recommend doing this! R.AK."- R.K. / Google / Apr 27, 2022
"Friendly staff, beautiful treatment rooms. I saw Megan for a BBL. Megan took the time to listened to my concerns and treated as needed. Thank you Artisan!"- J.F. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I highly recommend seeing Anna for a facial! Her communication is excellent and at the beginning she asked me if I wanted to have things explained to me or if I wanted it just quiet, if I wanted extractions, etc. you will be impressed with her communication; it made the experience comfortable and pleasant. The amount of pressure she applies with her movements is perfect. The products are high quality and the whole experience is soothing. She applied a very nice tinted moisturizer at the end so I felt like I could go out and run errands looking more polished. You (or your significant other😊) will not be disappointed with a facial from Anna!"- L.W. / Google / Mar 05, 2022
Men or women with skin laxity who are looking for a nonsurgical approach to improve the appearance of the skin may be a candidate for an RF skin rejuvenation treatment. Generally, it is a safe approach with little to no downtime and minimal risks.
RF skin rejuvenation utilizes controlled heat to target underlying skin tissues to support new collagen production. A cooling gel or oil may be applied to act as another layer of protection for the surface of the skin.
What to Expect
A series of four treatments spaced out approximately 7-14 days apart is recommended for optimum results. It is important for the client to understand that this treatment does not stop the aging process. We Artisans recommend a follow up appointment one year out to see if a "touch up" service may be warranted.
Some redness and swelling may appear in the treated area and will subside after a few hours. It is important for you to follow the post-treatment care prescribed including staying hydrated!
Plan Your Procedure
Look Toned & Tighter
The RF skin tightening approach is beneficial for people who have mild to moderate cases of skin laxity, wrinkles, and/or volume loss. In some cases, it may be recommended prior to a surgical lift to stimulate collagen, which will also help the healing process once the patient undergoes surgery. Learn more about this treatment at a private consultation in our practice. We look forward to meeting you.
