ThermiSmooth at Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX is a scalpel-free treatment that can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and stimulate the production of collagen for the face, neck, chest, knees, and upper hands. The process works by using radiofrequency energy to penetrate the deep layers of your skin to stimulate the natural production of collagen. This stimulation improves the health of the skin and also works to address areas of unevenness. Considered a safe and effective treatment, ThermiSmooth is recommended by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Renee Snyder because it doesn't require the downtime that is needed for surgical alternatives. Following the treatment, you will be able to resume your normal daily activities.
"I had terrible acne problems for the first time in 22 years and decided to try out this clinic. Right away the appointment was booked within the week and in my first consultation they offered me a long term plan and short term solution for the pain. The clinic is very clean and the staff is very friendly, they definitely make you feel at ease. On top of everything the doctors referred me to specific pharmacies that could offer me lower prices for the medications. My acne mostly cleared within a month but follow up visits made sure It cleared completely and made sure I was comfortable with the treatment and long term use."- D.C. / Google / Oct 26, 2019

"I've been seeing Dr. Snyder for the past ten years. The first time was when I was splitting my time between Los Angeles and Austin while in graduate school. I had a major eczema problem on my skin. I had no clue that the skin problem was from the fumes of an art project I had been creating for a client, till I discussed the specifics of my days before the out break with Dr. Snyder. She was like one of those damn ghost whisperers, walking me through my days. When she nailed the source, she simply explained to me the problem was from the fumes of the chemicals I was working with at the time (industrial resin and a catalyst). She prescribed a steroid and gave me a skin routine, my eczema went away within a week. Amazing! She is still my "go to" dermatologist for other issues I have had over the past few years. Yes, I travel from LA to Austin to see her. She's that good. Keep in mind that she is straightforward and to the point but awesome!"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 02, 2019
"Dr. PARKER is an incredible dermatologist. I called on Tuesday morning in a panic because of an allergic reaction - she fit me in later that day. Not only did she work quickly to diagnose the problem, but she prescribed medications that fit my difficult and specific allergies. I called on Wednesday to check in and she spoke on the phone with me personally, and is meeting with me for a follow-up as well. 10/10 doctor all around- truly cares about her patients. Would recommend her to everyone reading this!!!! Best dermatologist experience I've had- and I've seen a lot of them."- C.C. / Yelp / Aug 22, 2019

The perfect candidate for ThermiSmooth would be anybody looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without having to undergo a major surgery. ThermiSmooth can be performed to help stimulate the production of collagen for several areas of the face and body, which can include the face, neck, chest, knees, and upper hands. ThermiSmooth is best for patients who show signs of aging or have mild to moderate skin laxity.
Performed as an in-office procedure, ThermiSmooth treatments generally take no longer than an hour. The technician will mark the region for treatment and begin the process by gently moving the handheld device over the skin. Most often, our patients describe the sensation of the treatment like a warm facial or body massage. For optimal results, it is advisable that you undergo 3 – 6 treatments scheduled about 1 – 2 weeks apart.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you will be ready to resume your normal daily routine but are encouraged to limit sun exposure for some time. Without any incisions or scarring, you can usually see results in approximately 2 – 8 weeks, depending on the area of the body that was treated. Results can last up to two years, but follow-up treatments are often required to maintain results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do ThermiSmooth treatments cost?
There are many variables at play when calculating the cost of ThermiSmooth treatments at our office. For example, you may require multiple sessions in a series, have multiple areas of concern, or skin with different levels of severity. This will all affect the price range. Please contact our office for more information.
I've lost a lot of weight. Will ThermiSmooth tighten up my facial skin?
If you have loose skin on your face from weight loss, the skin elasticity is likely too severe to correct without surgery. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for the ThermiSmooth treatments is to come in for a scheduled consultation. Dr. Snyder would be happy to discuss with you a strategy to get your skin looking healthy again.
Will I eventually need a more invasive procedure?
The ThermiSmooth technology will give you temporary results only. Even with plastic surgery in the future, your skin will continue to age, sag, and develop wrinkles. If you are looking for longer-lasting outcomes, you should discuss your concerns with Dr. Snyder during your consultation. She may have insight on what you can expect from this type of radiofrequency treatments versus other procedures. Dr. Snyder may also make recommendations on how to best get the results you want now instead of waiting until you are older. We want you to look as young and attractive as you feel.
Is the treatment painful?
No. Some of our ThermiSmooth patients leave our office with a slight red tint to their face or on the area of the body that was treated. The heat emitted will not burn your skin. In fact, there are many safety measures in place to protect your skin, such as our careful monitoring of the temperature while the ThermiSmooth treatment is in progress. You may feel slightly warmer shortly afterward, but there should be no pain during or after your treatment.
