How Does SofWave™ Work for Skin Tightening?
SofWave™ uses unique SUBERB™ (Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam) technology. This form of ultrasound energy travels to a depth of 1.5mm into the skin. This layer of skin contains fibroblasts which are cells that produce collagen. The ultrasound energy heats this layer, triggering these cells to increase their collagen production. As a result, you can expect visible skin tightening with long-lasting results. SofCool™ technology protects your skin from the heat and keeps you comfortable throughout the treatment.
How Long Does Sofwave™ Skin Tightening Last?
Like other treatments that trigger collagen development, SofWave™ results take time to develop. Your results will start to appear after a few weeks, with full results visible within a few months. You can expect your SofWave™ results to last a year or more. Yearly maintenance treatments can keep collagen levels high and your skin looking firm. While the majority of people only need one SofWave™ treatment, a select few with deeper wrinkles need more than one to achieve the skin tightening they want.
What Can SofWave™ Treat?
Sofwave™ is FDA-approved to treat several areas of the face and neck. SofWave™ can treat mild to moderate skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and the appearance of jowls. It can treat lines and wrinkles almost anywhere on the face, including the undereye area. It has been shown to visibly lift the brows, tighten loose neck skin, and improve the contours of your lower face. It is helps tighten your neck and especially that little wattle under your chin! It has received FDA approval as well for cellulite and is being studied for wrinkles on the rest of your body as well.
