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.
"As I’ve gotten older, the number of medical specialists I see regularly has grown. And I’ve discovered I’m picky when it comes to who I trust with my issues. I recently had an appointment with Dr. Foley, and it seems I can cross Dermatologist off my list. Dr. Foley immediately set me at ease and was friendly and personable throughout my visit. She and her staff took great care of me professionally and seemed to value my time as much as her own."- L.G. / Yelp / Jun 19, 2021

"Overall a quick, painless experience. I had a painful skin growth that needed to be removed. Didn’t spend any time in the waiting room. The whole process took about five minutes. I wish more of my doctor’s appointments were this easy."- B.P. / Yelp / May 19, 2021
"First time to this office. Beautiful office and the Staff is very welcoming. Dr Foley and her nurse made me feel at such ease and made me feel like not all hope is lost. This will be my 3rd Dermatologist to help with my Chronic Rosacea."- R.C. / Facebook / May 06, 2021
"I have been seeing Dr. Snyder for 8 years now. She is hands down the best dermatologist I have ever seen. I appreciate her direct no nonsense manner and her overall approach to aging. She is always one to err on the side of "less is more" and has countless times advised me against something I was inquiring about because she felt it was simply too soon. I truly trust her opinion and approach. Anytime I have come in with a dermatological issue her recommended remedy has always worked on the first try. I would never dream of seeing anyone else. Dr. Snyder is my end all be all"- M.F. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021
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.
