What is Sofwave?
Sofwave is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment to lift the eyebrows, improve facial lines and wrinkles, and tighten stubborn laxity in the neck and submental tissues. This unique ultrasound delivery system stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin with a fractional heating effect, therefore leading to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a lifted, tightening effect.
How long does Sofwave take?
Sofwave is a quick treatment that can be done within your lunch hour – it only takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the treatment area.
Is there downtime with Sofwave?
Sofwave is a ZERO downtime treatment. Some patients may report minor swelling and redness post-procedure. If experienced, this tends to resolve in 24-48 hours. In the clinical trials, no bruising, ulceration, pigmentation, or device-related adverse effects were reported. No patients had ongoing pain or tenderness post-treatment.
Because Sofwave is non-invasive, patients can resume their normal day to day activities directly after the procedure – patients can even exercise the same day!
Who’s an ideal candidate for Sofwave?
Sofwave is perfect for patients who experience mild to moderate laxity in the jowls and neck alongside those who are trying to reduce wrinkles and lift around the eyes and upper face.
Sofwave can be performed on any area of the body and can even be used to treat cellulite. Sofwave does not melt fat, but rather tightens skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates the production of new collagen.
How long does it take to see results from Sofwave?
Immediately post-treatment, some patients notice a lifted effect. The collagen regeneration process takes up to 12 weeks and patients will notice continuous improvement in the 3-5 month period post-treatment. Full results are seen at 4-5 months.
How many treatments of Sofwave do I need?
Most patients only need one treatment of Sofwave to reach their desired result.
How does Sofwave differ from other ultrasound technologies?
In recent years, the need for non-invasive treatments with proven results and minimal downtime has been in high demand.
Unlike most technologies which cause controlled injury to the upper layers of the skin to build collagen, Sofwave works underneath the skin, therefore leading to less downtime and lower risk of side effects.
