What is Sofwave Treatment?

Sofwave utilizes state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, generating heat at just the right depth to boost your body’s own collagen and elastin production. This process helps lift skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

After the age of 20, a person produces about 1% less collagen in their skin each year. By age 40, they have lost approximately 10 to 20% of their collagen.

By 50, they are down 20 to 40%, and so the trend continues. This means that our skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity with age.

Sofwave uses proprietary ultrasound energy that moves through the skin’s surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at a temperature designed to encourage collagen production and improve the appearance of your skin.

How Does Sofwave Work?

Sofwave uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology. This Sofwave technology emits ultrasound energy that goes through the surface of the skin and heats the mid-dermal tissues. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen, which in turn creates the appearance of younger-looking skin.

Where Can Sofwave Be Utilized?

Sofwave can be used to target a number of different areas. The most common treatment areas we address are the neck, jawline, brow, and face.

What Makes Sofwave Different?

A clinical study observed Sofwave’s effect on facial wrinkles. The majority of patients reported that their skin was improved or significantly improved within 3 months of a single treatment. On top of clinically-proven technology, Sofwave benefits include:

  • Non-invasive – Most patients can get right back to normal life quickly following treatment.
  • Safe for all skin types – Ultrasound technology is safe and effective regardless of the patient’s skin type or color.
  • Quick treatment – Fast 45-minute procedure for the full face and neck region.
  • Patient satisfaction – In a multi-center clinical study, 72% of the patients were satisfied with their results and rated them as improved to very much improved.

Questions? We can help!

Am I a good candidate for Sofwave?

A good candidate for Sofwave is 30 or older with mild to moderate effects of skin aging. Although most candidates are above 30, Sofwave can also be a great option for patients seeking preventative skin care solutions.

Sofwave has been fully cleared by the FDA, and there were no serious adverse effects reported during clinical trials. Part of what makes Sofwave so safe is the integrated cooling mechanism, which protects the uppermost skin layer from burning during treatment. Additionally, we apply a topical anesthetic cream to reduce any discomfort during the treatment.

As the ultrasound energy is administered, patients may feel warmness in the area being treated, although we typically apply a topical numbing cream just before the treatment. Following treatment, patients can return to their daily routine with little to no downtime.

A single sofwave treatment typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes depending on the treatment area.

There have been no serious side effects observed during Sofwave’s clinical studies, however, in some cases patients may experience temporary erythema, or skin reddening. This usually clears up in a few days. Some patients may also have discomfort or tenderness in the treatment area post-procedure. We encourage you to talk with our team about any concerns you have before starting treatment.

Sofwave has no downtime, meaning you can return to work or running errands as soon as your treatment is complete.

Immediate results can be seen as soon as one week following the treatment. However, the collagen production process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in three months after their treatment.
