What To Expect

The Science Behind Your Confidence.

How Does Sofwave™ Work?

The Sofwave treatment is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound energy. It is less painful than Ultherapy and is known to boost collagen production. It’s safe to use on both the face and neck. The treatment usually takes 30 to 45 minutes. First, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin. This is followed by an ultrasound conductive gel. The handpiece then transmits the ultrasound energy throughout the skin. The procedure is painless and causes some warmth. After the treatment, there is minimal downtime and there are no side effects.

More About Sofwave

Starting in our mid-20’s, collagen and elastin start to break down causing our skin to wrinkle. Sofwave™ is a new, clinically proven, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen. Sofwave™ is FDA cleared for lifting the eyebrow, submental tissue and neck, and for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Sofwave is a non-invasive treatment for wrinkles and fine lines that does not require any surgery. While it can leave the treated area pink or slightly irritated for about 10 minutes, there are no serious side effects. The treatment is safe and the patient can return for subsequent treatments depending on the severity of the wrinkles and skin sensitivity. The skin may be pink and mildly irritated. The procedure is also painless and patients can cover any redness or sensitivity with makeup.

The Sofwave skin tightening treatment uses FDA-approved technology to tighten the skin and improve facial contours. This treatment has been clinically proven to improve facial features by improving skin elasticity, reducing fine lines, and lifting the chin and neck. The Sofwave procedure is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who uses the latest techniques and technology to help patients achieve their desired results. The treatment is quick, has little to no downtime, and patients usually only need a single session for optimum results.

After one Sofwave treatment, patients typically begin to see visible results within 3 to 4 weeks. This is because the Sofwave treatments trigger the body’s natural healing process. After the treatment, the skin will begin to regenerate collagen, which may take up to 12 weeks. The skin will continue to improve over the next three months or more, and the results are permanent.

The Sofwave technology uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB) technology to deliver energy to the skin at a depth of 1.5mm. The energy generated by the ultrasound stimulates the body to produce new collagen and elastin. These proteins in the skin can help tighten and smooth the skin.

The Sofwave is a non-invasive treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. The technology is similar to microneedling and radiofrequency, but is non-invasive. The Sofwave procedure is ideal for treating any area on the body.

The unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ generates heat at the right depth of 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling SofCool™ mechanism that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neocollagenesis, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

The treatment itself is fast, taking approximately 30 – 45 minutes for the full face and neck region. We prefer to numb the skin for 45-60 minutes prior to treatment.

Immediate results can be seen as little as 1 month, but peak results are 3-6 months. However, the collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in 3 months after their treatment.

At 3 months, a majority of patients were marked as improved to very much improved following a single treatment session only. 72% of the patients were satisfied with their results and rated them as improved to very much improved. The safety profile was strong with no serious adverse events reported by study participants.

Sofwave procedure is rated as mild to moderate discomfort and topical numbing is offered to help make this more comfortable. There are no needles involved and the skin remains intact. Compared to other devices, such as Ultherapy- Ultherapy is rated as typically more painful than Sofwave. Sofwave uses proprietary parallel beams to the skin which, the procedure does not result in the same kind of swelling or pain as other skin tightening devices.

Yes! Sofwave contracts the skin’s collagen resulting in a tightening and lifting effect. Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are all stimulated to be produced with this treatment.

Sofwave uses ultrasound technology to create heat within the skin’s mid-dermal layer. This heat activates the body’s natural healing response, which helps repair damaged skin and stimulate new collagen production. Sofwave also uses an integrated cooling mechanism called SofCool. This helps protect the top layer of skin from burn damage and keeps the client comfortable.

Yes! Because the targeted tissue is deeper than skin pigment, we can safely and effectively treat all skin types.

With mild to moderate laxity, Sofwave can make significant improvements, and with repeated treatments possibly avoiding a facelift or delaying the time in which your surgeon may recommends it.

Nothing quite replaces a facelift for more moderate to severe laxitiy, to this day, remains the gold-standard for those with excessive laxity.

Post Sofwave treatment there may mild flushing sensation that can be covered up with makeup for a few days after treatment. This is something that most people don’t notice and shouldn’t impact your social life.  Makeup can be worn same day after the treatment.

Sofwave uses ultrasound energy to tighten skin using ultrasound waves. This allows it to target multiple levels of tissue and produce an even and uniform effect. This avoids damage to deeper tissue or the outer layers of skin. Ultherapy, on the other hand, delivers energy deeper into the skin, closer to the bone. Patients who opt for Ultherapy often report significant pain during the procedure.

Because Sofwave uses proprietary parallel beams, the procedure doesn’t result in the same kind of swelling or pain. It also allows the physician to treat larger areas at one time. While Ultherapy has been around for years, Sofwave is still relatively new on the market. However, it has the same benefits of Ultherapy, and is a great option for those who don’t want to undergo surgery.

Ultherapy is one of the most popular non-surgical facelift procedures, and many celebrities have used it to keep their faces looking youthful and beautiful. The downside of Ultherapy is the risk of nerve damage and skin discoloration. Sofwave is less painful and can be used on all skin tones.

Sofwave uses ultrasound technology to create heat within the skin’s mid-dermal layer. This heat activates the body’s natural healing response, which helps repair damaged skin and stimulate new collagen production. Sofwave also uses an integrated cooling mechanism called SofCool. This helps protect the top layer of skin from burn damage and keeps the client comfortable.
