What is Sofwave™?

Sofwave™ is a non-invasive treatment that is FDA cleared and clinically proven to remodel collagen, which improves facial lines and wrinkles, lifts the eyebrows, submental, and neck area with minimal downtime! Sofwave™ uses proprietary Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, ultrasound energy to precisely pass through the skin’s surface (the epidermis), heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the precise depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibers and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

How does Sofwave™ work?

The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Sofwave’s unique technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and lifting the eyebrow, submental and neck.

What areas can Sofwave™ treat?

Sofwave™ can be used in multiple areas of the body, however the most common areas are:

  • Brow
  • Neck
  • Lower face
  • Lower face and neck
  • Full face
  • Full face and neck

What can I expect?

During your consultation, you will talk with one of our experts about your expectations for the treatment. Once it is decided that Sofwave™ is right for you, we can schedule your next appointment for the treatment. The treatment can last from 1 hour-2 hours depending on what areas we recommend treating.

Are there any side effects with Sofwave™?

Sofwave™ is a non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. Clinical trials have shown the technology to be effective and safe.
Immediately post treatment, the skin may appear slightly red with limited swelling for up to a few hours post treatment.

When will I see results?

Optimal results are usually seen 3-4 months following your treatment. Some patients may need multiples treatments to achieve their desired goal. This may vary from person to person since each treatment is customized to fit your individual needs.
