Next Generation in Facial Treatment
Sofwave™ is a new, non-invasive skin-tightening device that uses breakthrough ultrasound technology to revitalize the skin. Using Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, Sofwave™ provides a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and can lift the eyebrows, neck and submental area in a single treatment session, no matter the season. It is proven safe on all skin types and color.
Our patients love this non-invasive treatment because they can easily fit it into their active lifestyles. Patients can complete their treatment and return to their daily activities immediately after. Sofwave™’s safety profile, utilizing an integrated cooling system called Sofcool™, protects the outer layer of skin while allowing the ultrasound treatment to reach the precise depth in the dermis to achieve ideal results.
How Does Sofwave™ Work?
Sofwave™ uses a unique synchronous ultrasound parallel beam array technology to deliver heat 1.5mm into the mid-dermis; the optimal depth for wrinkle treatment. The outer layer of skin is bypassed and protected by the Sofcool™ technology.
The ultrasound waves are converted into heat within the dermis, resulting in stimulation of collagen synthesis. As a result, collagen in the skin will be replenished, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as creating a smoother and tighter skin complexion.
What Can Sofwave™ Treat?
Since Sofwave™ uses synchronous ultrasound technology to treat the skin, any patient with mild to moderate skin laxity of the face, neck, and other parts of the body can benefit from this treatment. It has been proven safe and effective for all skin types, as opposed to traditional laser and light-based therapies that can cause burns on those with tanned or darker skin tones.
What Kind of Results Can I Achieve?
Sofwave™ stimulates your body’s production of collagen, the body’s natural protein that supports the youthfulness of the skin. With Sofwave™, patients can achieve the following results:
- Tighter, lifted appearance in the treated areas such as the brows, cheeks, jawline, and neck.
- Toned and firmer skin.
According to Sofwave™ clinical studies, 88% of patients were marked as improved or significantly improved in the appearance of facial wrinkles and necklines 12 weeks after a single Sofwave™ treatment.
Before & Afters
What Is Recovery Like and When Will I See Results?
Sofwave™ uses synchronous ultrasound parallel beam array technology to precisely pass through the skin’s surface without damaging the epidermis or the underlying structures beneath the dermis. Combined with the device’s integrated cooling system, there is no required downtime after a Sofwave™ treatment. A topical numbing agent is applied prior to treatment to enhance your experience and reduce any discomfort associated with the procedure. Overall, Sofwave™ is a quick, non-invasive, in-office treatment.
Results may be seen as soon as one to two weeks following treatment. However, the collagen regeneration process can take up to 12 weeks to produce visible results. This means you can see gradual improvements during the 3-month period after your Sofwave™ treatment.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate?
Sofwave™ is an effective, in-office treatment for men and women who are looking for skin tightening of the face and neck or lifting of the brow. This device is non-invasive and is safe to use any time of the year on any skin type.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The majority of patients will only need one treatment, while others may benefit from an additional treatment. The number of treatments needed will depend on how much skin laxity you have and your body’s individual response to the Sofwave™ treatment.
How Long Is a Typical Treatment?
A single Sofwave™ treatment typically takes 45-90 minutes to complete, following the application of a topical anesthetic for 45-60 minutes.
How Is Sofwave™ Different From Other Cosmetic Treatments?
Sofwave™ recovery is usually limited to mild redness or swelling. Sofwave™ is the only device that uses synchronous ultrasound parallel beam technology to boost collagen levels without affecting the skin’s surface. You can achieve noticeable improvement in just a single session without discomfort or downtime.
How Is Sofwave™ Different From Ultherapy®?
Both Sofwave™ and Ultherapy® use ultrasound energy to penetrate into the lower dermal tissue and boost collagen production. One difference with Ultherapy® is that it uses small needles applied to the skin to deliver its ultrasound energy, while Sofwave™ uses a non-invasive platform. Ultherapy® tends to be quite uncomfortable and can result in some downtime for the patient whereas Sofwave™ provides a more gentle treatment experience while still achieving very natural, noticeable improvements.
