You can get younger-looking, firmer skin with SofWave™ non-invasive skin tightening. 

What is SofWave™?

SofWave™ is the breakthrough technology for the patient who has mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles but is not ready for a facelift yet. Maybe you’ve had fillers and toxins in the past but need something more and you don’t have to be stuck with days of downtime. And maybe you’re afraid of looking unnatural from surgery, like you’ve ‘had work done?’ Well then SofWave is for you! It is a holistic and antiaging treatment, turning back the clock while allowing you to look like yourself, just more youthful!

SofWave uses revolutionary fractional ultrasound technology to restore tighter, smoother skin. The ultrasound energy reaches through upper layers of skin and into the dermis where it stimulates increased collagen production and tightens the collagen you already have. This new collagen smooths your wrinkles and gives you a firmer, younger appearance. Unlike many other methods of stimulating collagen production, SofWave™ causes no surface injury to the skin and usually achieves your desired results with a single treatment.

How Does SofWave™ Work?

SofWave™ uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam technology (SUPERB™) to target the dermis, the layer of the skin where collagen is produced. The ultrasound energy travels harmlessly through the outer layers of skin and reaches into the dermis. At about 1.5mm deep, SofWave heats the tissues and initiates collagen production. Unlike lasers or microneedling, ultrasound energy does not cause injury to the surface of the skin, resulting in less discomfort and no downtime. SofWave™ allows a high level of customization so your New York Skin and Vein expert at our Oneonta or Binghamton location will tailor the depth and intensity to meet your needs. 

What Results Will I See with SofWave™?

SofWave™ treatment results may become visible within a few weeks, with full results developing within three to six months. During this time, your skin cells produce more collagen, rebuilding your skin’s support system. This increased collagen production gives you long-lasting results, often with a single treatment. Results last a year or more, and you should schedule a yearly treatment to maintain your firm, youthful-looking skin.

Is There Any Downtime with SofWave™?

Since SofWave™ uses non-invasive ultrasound energy, you can return to your usual activities immediately after treatment. You will not have any downtime, but your skin may look flushed and red for a few hours. Some people notice that their skin feels warm but not uncomfortable for a few hours after treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for SofWave™?

SofWave™ is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Ideal candidates want to address mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. SofWave™ makes an excellent choice for those in their 30s or older. It effectively targets areas including:

  • Brow and Forehead
  • Around the eyes
  • Cheeks and Jowls
  • Under the chin (submentum)
  • Neck
  • Cellulite too!
  • Soon there will be SofWave Treatments on the body as well

SofWave™ can be used as a preventative treatment to maintain high levels of collagen, preventing lines and wrinkles from becoming visible. You are a good candidate if you have some skin elasticity and do not have significant sagging. The treatment can be repeated in a few months if you would like to see greater improvement in your results.

What is a Typical Treatment Like With SofWave™?

SofWave™ treatment uses a handheld device that administers the ultrasound energy in a cycle lasting a few seconds. During each cycle, the ultrasound energy transfers heat into the skin, which will feel hot, but cooling technology protects the skin and reduces the sensation. Treating the face and jowl area typically takes 60 minutes. Numbing cream is applied to your face to make you comfortable and ProNox (nitrous oxide or laughing gas) is available if you are very sensitive.
