Synergy MedSpa

Your skin is the canvas on which your beauty begins. Whether you are already one of our plastic surgery patients or you would like to look younger and more vibrant without surgery, Synergy MedSpa in Austin, Texas, offers advanced med spa and skin care treatments to help you accomplish your goals. Men and women visit us for a variety of convenient, affordable, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation options.

Your Options

It has never been so easy to improve your appearance, and never before has it required so little time for treatment and recovery. We provide the following skin care options:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®: These injectable products temporarily deactivate the muscles responsible for some of our peskiest facial lines, including crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
  • Dermal Fillers: The active ingredients in injectable fillers can add volume and softness to lines, wrinkles, and hollows around the nose, mouth, and other areas of the face for a subtle lift and smoothness.
  • CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting Elite: Reduce areas of unwanted fat that form a belly, love handles, double chin, or other trouble spots without surgery, anesthetic, or downtime. We have 2 CoolSculpting machines for faster treatment of multiple areas.
  • CoolTone®: Get the contoured appearance you want by toning the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks with this nonsurgical treatment. CoolTone uses magnetic energy to stimulate thousands of involuntary muscle contractions during a 30-minute treatment.
  • Chemical Peels: Peel away the signs of aging, sun damage, and environmental exposure with our selection of clinical-strength chemical peels.
  • Morpheus8 RF Microneedling: Firm and brighten your skin with this customizable radiofrequency microneedling treatment.
  • Medical Grade Skincare: Rev up your at-home routine with nourishing Theraderm products.
  • BBL® Hero™ (BroadBand Light): The BBL Hero is the most powerful form of intense pulsed light technology on the market today. It addresses complexion issues related to sun damage and the natural aging process. 
  • HALO® Laser Skin Resurfacing: The HALO fractional hybrid laser skin resurfacing system is the most comprehensive laser skin treatment available at our practice. 
  • Contour TRL™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Minimize fine lines and wrinkles without the downtime associated with more aggressive CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments.  
  • NanoLaserPeel™: This gentler laser resurfacing treatment smooths fine lines, improves skin texture, and refreshes dull skin. It requires so little downtime that it’s often called a “weekend peel.” 

You can save on many of these med spa treatments, including BOTOX and dermal fillers, by becoming a Skin Club member.

Mara Piggott, RN-BSN

Mara is a skilled injector with over a dozen years’ experience as a registered nurse, the majority of which have been focused on aesthetic nursing. Her keen artistic eye, precise hands, scientific knowledge, and continued education make her one of the best at what she does. Mara believes that each and every patient is uniquely beautiful. She seeks to enhance that beauty in a way that ignites an inner confidence. Seeing her patients’ faces light up with joy after a treatment is what she lives for and is why she is excited to go to work each and every day.

As a student, Mara excelled in all subjects, but most enjoyed science and art. This, combined with a fascination with people, led her to pursue a degree in nursing. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Nursing with high honors in 2007.

The early years of Mara’s career were spent welcoming new lives into the world in a high-risk labor and delivery unit here in Austin. In the delivery room, she developed a calm and friendly bedside manner, which her patients appreciate to this day.

In 2014, after pursuing some aesthetic treatments herself, the aesthetic world caught her eye: the opportunity to meld her artistic talent, scientific knowledge, and interpersonal skills was exactly what she wanted and has been her passion ever since.

If you sit in Mara’s chair, you will get the sense of her intuitive, innovative, and perfectionistic style. She regularly trains with the best injectors in the world and uses cutting-edge techniques that maximize safety and results. She keeps her clients very involved in the process and works closely with them to make sure she is aligned with their goals. Mara looks forward to meeting you to customize a treatment plan and work with you towards your aesthetic goals!
