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
"If you’ve ever had the slightest thought about doing something extra for yourself, go visit with the staff at Artisan skin and laser. They will make you feel like family the minute you walk through the door. And, when you leave, your smile will be bigger than before walking in. They are a step above the rest!"- A.W. / Facebook / Sep 13, 2019

"Amazing results! Especially with the BBL! If you have any sort of skin pigmentation (freckles/sun damage) and haven't tried one yet, you're missing out for sure!"- K.I. / Google / Aug 08, 2019
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.
