Your face reflects a lifetime of experience — laughing and smiling, squinting into the sun, and raising your brows when surprised. Over time, wrinkles and lines form, and the collagen that’s essential to keeping skin taut and smooth begins to break down. Thermage offers patients at our Worcester and Chelmsford, MA clinics a non-invasive solution that tightens the skin and restores a look of vibrancy and youth. Dr. Seth Kates and Dr. David Simkin can target the neck, eyelids, and other areas of the face, getting excellent results after only a single session that requires little downtime.

Who Can Benefit From Thermage?
Anyone who is concerned about the appearance of wrinkles or sagging skin can benefit from Thermage. Men and women who want to restore the definition of their jawlines are excellent candidates. It works on various skin tones and types, unlike laser skin tightening treatments. At our clinics, we treat all areas of the face, including:
- Fine lines around the upper and lower eyelids
- Hooded upper eyelids and brows that contribute to a tired appearance
- Sagging neck skin
We customize each treatment to address a patient’s specific concerns.
How Does It Work?
Thermage helped pioneer the use of non-invasive radiofrequency energy as an anti-aging treatment. Thermage focuses the heat generated by this energy on the deep tissue under the skin while cooling the skin’s surface at the same time. That ensures the skin isn’t damaged and your comfort is enhanced during the procedure.
Heating the deep tissue triggers the body’s natural healing process, which produces new collagen to improve the skin’s texture, tone, and contour. Most patients get the desired results after only a single treatment.
The Thermage Experience
The Thermage procedure usually takes about 45 minutes. During the treatment, a gentle vibration and pulsed cooling bursts help keep you comfortable as the device delivers radiofrequency energy to the deep tissue. Some patients request pain relief medication prior to the treatment, and the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted to enhance your comfort level while still getting the best results possible.
Little to no downtime is needed following the procedure. Most patients see immediate results and feel some tightening, but you can expect to see continuing improvement during the 6 months following your treatment as your own collagen grows.
