Before and After of Sofwave TreatmentLearn More
From the founders of the aesthetic industry, Sofwave Medical brings a novel approach to skin tightening using SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology. Sofwave’s breakthrough technology delivers a new standard of care to aesthetic treatments, providing safe aesthetic treatments for patients.
Sofwave is the newest non-invasive skin treatment that targets wrinkles and stimulates collagen, revitalizing the face and rejuvenating your appearance without a need for downtime.
Sofwave has a number of benefits for those who are looking to firm, tone and renew their skin:
Candidates for Sofwave are adults who are beginning to show the signs of age and would like to rejuvenate their face without surgery. You may be an ideal candidate for Sofwave if you have mild to moderate facial fine lines and wrinkles, and mildly sagging facial and neck skin.
Sofwave is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles using a next generation SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology. The fractional heating effect created by Sofwave’s unique ultrasound delivery stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, which leads to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ 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. Sofwave is clinically-proven to remodel collagen, improve facial lines and reduce wrinkles, achieving ideal outcomes with minimal downtime in a single 30-45-minute treatment.
Typically, the treatment protocol calls for 1-2 treatments, depending on the patient’s skin condition.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmness of the skin. Treatment is comfortable simply by applying a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Following the treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Daily care can be resumed immediately post treatment.
The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in the three-month period after their treatment. In Sofwave’s clinical trials, results have been shown as soon as one treatment is completed. The results will last for about one year, at which point it is recommended to repeat the treatment.
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.
