About RF Skin Tightening

For Artisan 57 patients who do not need or want a surgical lift to correct loose, sagging skin on the body or face, we can offer radio frequency (RF) skin rejuvenation to tighten the skin without the nuisances of surgery. 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.

Ideal Candidates

Men or women with skin irregularities such as wrinkles, stretch marks, or cellulite who are looking for a nonsurgical way to improve the skin may be a candidate for an RF skin rejuvenation treatment. Generally, it is a safe approach with no downtime and minimal risks. If the skin shows signs of laxity, it is understood that there is a significant loss of collagen or fat tissues, which help keep the skin tight. RF rejuvenation stimulates collagen and elastin production to change the skin's shape.

Treatment Technique

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. This treatment is most effective with skin irregularities such as wrinkles, stretch marks, or cellulite. 

What to Expect

Your skin tightening results may be long lasting since the treatment is not superficially limited and increases collagen. It's important for the patient to understand that this treatment does not stop the aging process. There are cases in which an RF treatment is repeated when deemed necessary.

Some redness and swelling may appear in the treated area and will subside after a few weeks. It is important for you to follow the post-treatment care prescribed.

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.
