Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ned Snyder offers ThermiTight nonsurgical skin tightening from his practice, Snyder Plastic Surgery at The Breast and Body Center in Austin, TX to help boost collagen and tighten loose skin. When we are born, our bodies have a full supply of collagen and elastin, which helps our skin to remain smooth, healthy, and resilient for years to come. However, in time, the supply of these nutrients begins to dwindle, decreasing the elasticity of our skin and allowing lines, wrinkles, and sagging to occur. For patients who wish to improve the overall appearance of their skin without cosmetic surgery, nonsurgical skin tightening with ThermiTight is an excellent solution. ThermiTight heats the skin beneath the surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin so you can have firmer, healthier skin without surgery. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Snyder today to learn more.
"I had an amazing experience with beautiful results - I couldn’t be happier with my breast augmentation results. Everyone that I met from my first consultation to my post follow up after surgery were extremely helpful and informative. Dr. Snyder himself is an amazing surgeon. My results are perfect and better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend him if you are thinking about this procedure. His PA, Jen was extremely helpful and informative as well.

Skin tightening surgery and lift procedures, like facelifts, are still the most effective solution for severe sagging and loose skin. However, nonsurgical skin tightening can help address these conditions if you do not want to go under the knife. 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 your treatment begins, one of our skilled team members will escort you to one of our well-appointed and comfortable treatment rooms. After the predetermined type of anesthesia is applied (most commonly, local anesthesia), Dr. Snyder will gently insert the ThermiTight electrode beneath the subdermal layer of your skin and begin the treatment. The handheld applicator will begin to heat the treatment area, stimulating the production of collagen. Results can take a few weeks to appear but are lasting and beautiful. Enjoy the benefits of skin tightening without the side effect of scars and downtime.
What to Expect
As the procedure does include anesthesia of some sort, you should plan to have a responsible adult drive you home following your procedure. The treated area will be sore and may be red or swollen following the procedure. However, you should be able to return to normal activities the following day. Dr. Snyder or a member of his team will provide you with detailed instructions on how best to care for your skin to prevent against infection. If Dr. Snyder sends you home with a prescription, it is important that you take the medications according to the instructions provided. 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 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.
