Austin, TX area dermatologist Dr. Renee Snyder is proud to offer ThermiTight nonsurgical skin tightening from her private practice, Snyder Dermatology. ThermiTight is an innovative nonsurgical skin-tightening procedure, which helps to boost collagen and tighten loose skin. Our bodies have a full supply of collagen and elastin when we are first born. These natural substances help our skin to remain smooth, healthy, and resilient for years to come. However, over time, the supply of these nutrients begins to dwindle, causing a decrease in the elasticity of our skin and allowing lines, wrinkles, and sagging to occur. Austin area patients who wish to improve the overall appearance of their skin without cosmetic surgery may be ideal candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening with ThermiTight. This advanced technology using the ARVATI machine heats the skin beneath the surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin so you can achieve healthier skin without surgery. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Snyder at Snyder Dermatology today to learn more.

Surgical skin tightening and lifting are still the most effective way to treat severe sagging and loose skin. But ThermiTight nonsurgical skin tightening can help address many minor complaints if you are not ready to undergo surgery. ThermiTight can be used to treat many areas of the face and body, including the neck, stomach, arms, and thighs. Ideal patients for ThermiTight:
- Are at or near a healthy, stable weight
- Have lines or wrinkles on the face or body
- Want to boost the health and appearance of their skin
- Have mild to moderate skin looseness on the face or body
- Are in good overall health
Before beginning your treatment, a member of the Snyder Dermatology team will lead you back to one of our comfortable and thoughtfully decorated minor procedure rooms. The predetermined type of anesthesia will be administered before Dr. Snyder gently inserts the ThermiTight wand beneath the top layer of your skin. The handheld applicator will slowly begin to warm the treatment area, stimulating the production of collagen. Your results may take a few weeks to appear but will be long-lasting and gorgeous.
What to Expect
Because your procedure will be performed under some sort of anesthesia, you should make arrangements to be driven home following your treatment. You may experience soreness, redness, and/or swelling of the treatment area, but this will subside in the coming days. You should be able and ready to return to your daily activities the following day. Dr. Snyder or a member of her team will provide you with detailed instructions on how best to care for the treatment area to expedite healing and prevent infection. ThermiTight will provide long-lasting results that will improve the overall appearance of your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does ThermiTight cost?
Depending on the size and amount of areas being treated, the cost of ThermiTight nonsurgical skin tightening can vary. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Snyder will create a customized treatment plan, which will allow our team to better determine your out-of-pocket costs. Our facility does accept many payment methods and can help you apply for medical financing.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based tissue naturally produced by the body. Along with other functions, it works to help keep skin hydrated, elastic, and firm. However, through the natural aging process, the natural supply and production of collagen tend to slow down. This then leads to looser, thinner, and less elastic skin. With ThermiTight, this procedure will bolster your collagen production and help improve the overall appearance of your skin.
What kind of side effects can I expect after my treatment?
After your ThermiTight treatment, you may experience some redness, temporary swelling, and/or numbness of the treated area. This typically subsides within a few days. The results of your treatment will continue to develop in the months following your procedure as collagen continues to be produced. Some patients require several treatments before achieving their desired result.
