Why choose Sofwave

Facial lines and wrinkles are a natural consequence of aging. Over the course of a lifetime, collagen and elastin fibers gradually become looser and weaker, causing skin to sag and wrinkles to form. There are many non-invasive treatments available to reverse these signs of aging, and Sofwave brings an effective and novel approach to skin rejuvenation.

Sofwave is FDA cleared and uses a Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The heat radiated by the device stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which gives the skin strength and flexibility. This in turn makes the skin appear softer and more youthful.

The ultrasound heat also triggers the tissue repair response in your cells, facilitating restoration and repair of damaged and creased skin.

This gentle, energy-based technology is a non-invasive solution to the common signs of aging, lessening the visibility of lines and wrinkles for a fresher look.

Ideal Candidates for Sofwave Treatments

Sofwave is designed for all skin types and tones. The ideal candidate for Sofwave treatment is over 30 years old and is experiencing mild to moderate skin aging. If you are experiencing some sagging in facial or neck skin or would like to pursue a non-invasive treatment for lines and wrinkles, you might be an ideal candidate.

Wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin are influenced by the depletion of collagen and elastin caused by aging, which means people who are experiencing these features of the aging process will get the most from the procedure. The energy-based Sofwave treatment will be tolerated well by most patients, but your suitability will be discussed during a consultation about your personal skin history and ideal outcomes.

Immediately prior to the treatment, topical anesthetic treatments are often applied to the skin. It will take a few minutes for the numbing to take effect.

An ultrasound receptive gel will then be applied to the area, and the Sofwave handpiece will be moved over the skin’s surface, transmitting the heat over the skin. Comfort levels may vary from patient to patient. You may experience a warm sensation, but the integrated cooling system protects the skin and ensures no damage to the underlying structures.

For the full face region, a treatment will usually take 30-45 minutes. Most common areas of treatment are the brow, chin, cheeks, and neck areas. The duration of the procedure will depend on which areas are targeted.

No specific skin treatment is required following the procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling, sensitivity, and numbness for a few days. In rare cases, the swelling may last up to a week. However, most patients are able to continue their normal activities immediately and resume daily skincare straight away, no downtime necessary. Clinical trials show that the treatment has minimal risk.

Further sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. Typically, treatment will be 1-2 sessions, but this will depend on individual goals as well as the severity of skin issues and concerns. Each session is aimed at improving skin texture to create a tighter and more youthful appearance.

Sofwave can be used to treat a number of the visible effects of aging on the skin. These include:

  • Loose and sagging facial or neck skin
  • Lines around the cheek, mouth, and eye areas
  • Loss of collagen and elastin
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Loose jawline and jowls
  • Skin imperfections

Multiple areas can be treated at one time, but this depends on the details of your personal treatment plan which will be tailored to you and your specific needs.

Many patients see a noticeable improvement in their skin texture immediately after the treatment. However, the final results will slowly develop over time. Visible results will usually appear one week after the procedure, with gradual refinement in the months afterwards.

Collagen can take time to regenerate within the skin, and it may take up to 12 weeks to see the full effects. For this reason, patients may see continual improvement in the 3-month period following the procedure. Follow-up treatments may help you achieve an optimal outcome, but clinical trials show that many people need only one treatment to see results.

SculpSure© is a revolutionary treatment.  There is absolutely no downtime associated with the procedure.  Patients may feel a little tenderness in the treated areas for a few days, but this sensation is comparable to that of an intense workout, and should not disrupt your regular activities.   There are no permanent marks or scars associated with this treatment.  Most patients return to work right after their SculpSure© treatment.  You are free to leave the clinic as soon as you are ready.
