What is Ultherapy?
When you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment to tighten your skin, you should consult with our board-certified dermatologists at Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX. We offer ultherapy, a nonsurgical skin tightening that delivers the results of a facelift without the painful surgery and downtime. Using ultrasound energy, ultherapy can tighten the skin of the wrinkles and lines on the eyebrows, neck, and chin, as well as along the chest area. This energy delves deeply into the layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. Your body will naturally respond to the treatment for younger-looking, tighter skin.
Plastic surgery will yield dramatic results with a surgical lift of your skin. Ultherapy will provide subtle results in comparison. During a private consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists on staff, we will discuss which procedure is the right plan for you. If you would like to learn more about this highly-advanced noninvasive skin tightening treatment, please contact Dr. Renee Snyder's office and schedule a consultation.
"Rachel Evans is my hero. I first came to her a few years ago with a long list of treatments that I was sure I needed, but she told me to put my money toward the most effective treatment. I have had Ultherapy done by her twice now, and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results. I am 51 years old, and last night someone actually thought I was 35 (I'm a former smoker and tanner, too). I really appreciate her honesty and her professionalism. She will NOT sell you treatments you don't need—she'll give it to you straight. And trust her, because she'll help you look great."- T.A. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2017
"Generally you go see a dermatologist when you are having some sort of skin issue or thing you want to address. After seeing 6 different dermatologists over a few years and never getting results I came across Dr. Renee Snyder. Not only does this doctor take the time to listen to all of your challenges and concerns, but she is direct and aggressive in her approach yielding the best results. Her team is extremely knowledgeable and super sweet. She is straight to the point with her approach to targeting all your skin needs. She has the most cutting edge treatments in the Austin area. Her experience and expertise creates an environment that trumps any other in this field. I have found the best dermatologist and if you are needing to figure out who to go to she is your golden opportunity to skin health. The best thing is, if you are on the fence about a protocol, she is a straight shooter and if she doesn't think it is right for you she won't try and sell you on any service or treatment. After your appointment, make sure you go see Rachel for Microneedling and Ultherapy. It makes you look even more amazing!! Then check out their non-toxic skin care and make-up products for sale. Best in the industry!"- G.W. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2017
What to Expect with Ultherapy
Before ultherapy is performed, the treatment area is thoroughly cleansed. The doctor will apply an ultrasound gel onto the skin and then place the handheld applicator onto the patient’s skin. Using ultrasound imaging, we will be able to see deep within the skin to pinpoint the correct positioning for energy to be delivered. The ultrasound energy will be delivered underneath the surface of the skin. A patient can expect to feel small bits of energy delivered into various depths of the skin. Some people may feel a prickling sensation, so a doctor may suggest taking a pain reliever or similar medication prior to treatment. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 – 90 minutes.
Ultherapy Anticipated Results
Since ultherapy is noninvasive, there is no downtime associated with the treatment. A patient will be able to return to day-to-day activities immediately. After the procedure, a patient’s skin may look flushed but this should subside within a few hours. Some patients report tenderness, slight swelling or a tingling feeling, but these symptoms typically go away in a few days. Right after the procedure, patients usually see a slight improvement in appearance. Within 2 – 3 months, most patients see a dramatic difference since the body has started to naturally regenerate collagen. Since ultherapy isn’t a surgery, patients need to realize that results won’t be comparable to those of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy is a good option for patients who aren’t willing are able to go under the knife for cosmetic surgery. This procedure is also ideal for people who are looking for a quick procedure with no downtime. It is also significantly less expensive option than a classic facelift. Our dermatology office recommends this treatment for individuals whose skin is mildly to moderately loose. Patients with slight to moderate loose skin around the neck, a sagging or double chin, a sagging eyebrow line, or lines and wrinkles in the chest area might be good candidates for this procedure. For more information, we invite you to call our dermatology office and schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dermatologists.
