What is SofWave™ Used For?

Have you noticed skin laxity around your forehead, around your eyes, or under your chin? SofWave™ is a non-invasive way to tighten loose skin and define your features. This treatment offers an entirely new option for those with mild to moderate skin laxity or cellulite. 

What is SofWave™ Skin Tightening? 

SofWave™ uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam technology (SUPERB™). This non-invasive form of ultrasound energy precisely targets the dermis without causing any injury to the skin’s surface. It triggers collagen production for tighter, smoother skin. This innovative ultrasound technology addresses many areas of skin laxity and is also FDA-cleared to treat cellulite. 

What is SofWave™ Used For?

Because it works with no needles, incisions, or skin damage, SofWave™ can be used in many locations. Popular spots for SofWave™ treatment include:

  • Forehead and brows
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Under the chin
  • Neck
  • Cellulite

SofWave™  skin tightening technology works in these areas to lift and tighten the skin, smooth lines and wrinkles, and add definition. Because it uses your own collagen, SofWave™ produces natural-looking results.

SofWave™ is also a preventative treatment for those wanting to keep collagen levels high. It makes an excellent option for people in their 30s or older who want to halt ongoing signs of aging. One SofWave™ treatment can provide enhanced collagen production that defies aging for a year or more. 

How Does SofWave™ Work?

SofWave™ works using SUPERB™ ultrasound energy. These precisely targeted beams travel 1.5 mm through the outer layers of the skin. They act on cells in the dermis, where they trigger skin cells to produce more collagen. The energy also causes existing collagen fibers to tighten, leading to increased skin firmness. The added collagen also makes skin thicker and enhances volume, giving your features more definition and helping to smooth the appearance of cellulite. 

Is There Any Downtime After SofWave™?

Because SofWave™ so precisely targets the dermal layers of the skin without harming the surface, this treatment requires no downtime. You can return to your usual activities immediately after your treatment. Your skin may feel flushed and warm for a few hours after treatment, but most people do not find this uncomfortable.

What Results Will I See With SofWave™?

SofWave™ results begin to appear a few weeks after treatment. You will notice that your skin looks tighter and has more youthful firmness. Lines, wrinkles, and cellulite dimples fade as your skin becomes stronger and more resilient. SofWave™ results typically last at least a year, especially with good skincare and sun protection. Schedule yearly maintenance appointments for lasting results. With no downtime, SofWave™ provides a convenient and highly effective way to achieve tighter skin. 

Am I a Good Candidate for SofWave™?

Almost anyone is a good candidate for non-invasive SofWave™. Ideal candidates have mild to moderate skin laxity and want to address it without invasive procedures. Ultrasound energy is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates for preventative SofWave™ want to prevent signs of aging and skin laxity from developing.
