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.
"Dr. Tendler did an amazing job on my tear trough injections and lip injections. The best part was that it was completely pain free!!"- J.R. / Google / Dec 14, 2017

"I have had a handful of procedures done at Artisan 57. I love the peels and facials Kennedy performs (See you tomorrow for round #3 ?). Another service was laser hair removal on my upper lip done by Alyssa. I have dark brown hair that continued to grow coarser due to my access of waxing essentials at my previous job. It became a biweekly maintenance! She performed 8 sessions within a 10 month period. Quick and painless.. besides a mile zap which is more shocking than anything ? A pluck here or there is my only concern now. These two girls changed my ways of skin care and I love all the products they have introduced. Alyssa has also been a great addition to the team! Thanks for all you do ladies ?"- H.J. / Facebook / Sep 19, 2017
"Had a Halo Laser Treatment done 6/15/17. Love-Love the results! Totally worth it...planning on having another treatment in the future. I am 40 and started to get crepey loose skin under my eyes. Now it's gone! Skin is brighter and smoother. So happy! Staff was professional and friendly. Thank you!"- T.T. / Facebook / Jun 29, 2017
"I was very happy and well-pleased with the excellent job Dr. Tendler did on repairing my drooping eyelids. She is very caring and concerned about her patients. I enjoyed meeting her and am very happy with the work she did for me. Being able to see with wide open eyes, and no eyelashes blocking my vision is great. I didn't realize what a difference the surgery would make."- K.D. / Healthgrades / Apr 25, 2017
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.
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.
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.
