Can Sofwave™ Tighten Sagging Jowls?

Sagging jowls and skin laxity are some of the most frustrating things we see in the mirror. While you may think surgery is your only solution, Sofwave™ offers a non-invasive option. This effective treatment tightens and strengthens your skin to lift and tighten your face and neck for natural-looking, youthful results. 

What is Sofwave™ Skin Tightening?

Sofwave™ is a skin-tightening method that uses focused ultrasound energy. This energy reaches the deep layers of the skin, triggering new collagen production. Sofwave™ is an excellent option for those who want to address skin laxity but are not ready for a facelift (or have had a facelift and starting to see it fail.) Sofwave™ can address sagging in your brows, neck, and midface areas. Sofwave™ can also effectively improve the appearance of cellulite. 

How Does Sofwave™ Work?

Sofwave™ uses SUPERB™ (Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam) technology. This ultrasound energy travels into the skin to a precise depth of 1.5mm, which can be adjusted to meet different skin types and needs. The ultrasound energy heats the deep layers of the skin, stimulating your cells to produce new collagen. This energy also causes the collagen fibers in your skin to contract and tighten, increasing lift and firmness. 

Can Sofwave™ Tighten Sagging Jowls?

Sofwave™ can be used all over the face to provide lift and tighten the skin. Sagging jowls are one of the most common concerns treated with Sofwave™. Treatment restores the definition of your jawline and restores youthful firmness without a neck or facelift. People who have treatment for their sagging jowls may also opt for treatment of the neck and area under the chin for a more sculpted lower face. 

Other popular areas for Sofwave™ treatment include drooping brows, lines and wrinkles, and loss of definition in the midface. Sofwave™ can help people put off the need for a facelift or brow lift, often for years. We recommend a consultation to find out if Sofwave™ can provide the results you hope to see.

What Results Will I See With Sofwave™?

Most people only require one Sofwave™ treatment to achieve results. You will start to notice improvements within a few weeks as new collagen develops. Your results will continue to improve for up to six months after treatment. Yearly maintenance treatments will keep your skin firm and lifted. While Sofwave™ will not produce the same results as a facelift, many people find it the ideal solution to your sagging jowls. 

Is There Any Downtime After Sofwave™?

Non-invasive Sofwave™ requires no downtime. You can return to your usual activities immediately, but you may notice redness and sensitivity that can last for a few hours. We recommend using sun protection and medical-grade skincare products to protect your results over time.
