Get In Touch

You want to look your best, but time and the stresses of life aren’t on your side. As early as your mid-twenties, collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful skin, start to break down. Production of these vital proteins slows, and the existing collagen and elastin fibers begin to weaken.

The result is skin that gradually loses its elasticity and starts to droop, leading to signs of aging like a crepey neck, sagging jowls, and eyebrows that migrate downward and make you look perpetually grumpy. Sofwave™ is a noninvasive treatment designed to smooth and lift these problem areas, giving you tighter, more youthful skin.

  • What Is Sofwave™?

    Sofwave™ is a device that uses ultrasound technology to heat the collagen fibers deep in the dermis, causing them to contract and tighten your skin. At the same time, the treatment stimulates the production of new collagen, rejuvenating your skin and extending your results naturally.

  • How Does Sofwave™ Work?

    Sofwave™ uses “Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array” technology to send ultrasound waves under your skin. The waves are converted into heat, causing the existing collagen fibers to contract, lifting and tightening sagging skin. The ultrasound energy also targets the mid-dermis, where new collagen is produced. The heat from the sound waves makes your body think that your skin is injured, signaling the body to repair the perceived injury by creating new collagen. The result is firmer, more youthful skin.

    The Sofwave™ device is also equipped with an integrated cooling mechanism, ensuring that the outer layer of the skin is protected during treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Sofwave™?

Ideal candidates for Sofwave™ are men and women who want to tighten and rejuvenate the skin on their face and neck. Unlike many light-based therapies for treating facial aging, Sofwave™ is safe for all skin tones, types, and colors.

How Is the Sofwave™ Treatment Performed?

When you come in for your Sofwave™ treatment, a numbing cream is applied to your face to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once the numbing cream has been absorbed, the device is moved across the treatment area in a grid pattern. The ultrasound energy is aimed precisely where it needs to be, and the device is set to penetrate your skin at a depth that will offer maximum results. Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes, at which time you are free to go about your day.

What Is Sofwave™ Recovery Like?

Because Sofwave™ is noninvasive, there is no need for downtime after the procedure. You can return to work and other regular activities immediately after your treatment, and you may also return to your daily skincare regimen immediately after the procedure. Some patients may experience a bit of pinkness and warm skin. It’s similar to if they’d gotten a mild sunburn, but this dissipates quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sofwave™

  • How many Sofwave™ treatments will I need?

    Most people only require one to two Sofwave™ treatments to see visible results, but the number of treatments needed will depend on the level of skin laxity. It is also recommended that you undergo additional treatments once a year to maintain your results.

  • When will I see my Sofwave™ results?

    Most patients see a tightening and smoothing effect immediately after treatment. Your results will continue to improve over the course of about three months as new collagen is produced.

  • How do I prepare for my Sofwave™ treatment?

    Come to your appointment with clean skin and no makeup or skin products applied. If you have active cystic acne or open wounds, you will need to reschedule your treatment.

  • Is a Sofwave™ treatment painful?

    Sofwave™ treatments are designed to be as painless as possible by using a topical numbing cream combined with the cooling technology of the device. However, some patients with sensitive skin may feel some mild discomfort but report that it is tolerable and short-lived.
