Ultrasound Skin Tightening & Lifting
Sofwave is an advanced non-surgical facelift alternative that involves no downtime, needles, or anesthesia. It works by using ultrasound technology to target the layer of skin that houses collagen breakdown during the natural aging process. Our bodies naturally turn off the collagen-building process during our 30s. Sofwave flips the switch and turns that process back on.
How does Sofwave work?
There is a specific depth within the skin that is optimal for treating wrinkles. Sofwave's technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. In addition, there is a cooling mechanism that keeps the uppermost layer of skin from burning.
The areas that are treated stimulate a healing response, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Before & After
How many treatments are needed?
Typically, the treatment protocol calls for 1-2 treatments, depending on the patient’s skin condition.
What does the Sofwave treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmth of the skin. There can be a topical anesthetic used before the treatment. Following the treatment, there may be some swelling and redness for a short period of time. There is no need to apply special care to the skin. Daily care can be resumed immediately post-treatment.
When can I expect to see results?
The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in the 3-month period after their treatment.
In Sofwave’s clinical trials, results have been shown in as little as, after one treatment.
