Loose skin is among the first noticeable signs of aging. This can occur beneath the chin, in the neck, around the eyes and along the jawline. Many patients would prefer non-surgical options for tightening their skin. For those patients, Sofwave is an ideal option. This skin-tightening technology relies on powerful ultrasound energy to boost collagen and elastin levels, providing the foundation for a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Sofwave is an ultrasound-based technology cleared by the FDA to improve skin laxity in the brow, neck, and beneath the chin. It can also help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and creases that form as we age. By triggering the regeneration of collagen reserves, Sofwave helps to restore a youthful support system for the skin. There is no downtime with this treatment, so patients can return to their normal activities right after their treatment. Furthermore, it recently has been approved for cellulite treatment which is very exciting!
Sofwave is safe and approved for patients of all skin tones who are looking for non-invasive skin tightening. The best candidates are those who are realistic in their expectations and positive in their outlook. Dr. Demetri will assess your facial features and discuss if Sofwave can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Since Sofwave uses a unique Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology that heats the skin to promote collagen production without causing any damage to the epidermis, there is no downtime! Furthermore, Sofwave provides a built-in cooling system that ensures patient comfort at all times. Patients can return immediately to their normal routines and begin to use skincare products right away as well.
Sofwave promotes tighter, more elastic skin as well as a more lifted appearance in the midface. You can expect improved definition along the jawline, and even elevated brows. While many patients experience improvements in their skin within the first week of treatment, collagen regrowth can take up to 12 weeks to become fully visible.
The treatment itself is rather fast, taking approximately 30 – 40 minutes for an entire face and neck region.
Most patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from an additional treatment, depending on your body’s response to the first treatment.
Immediate results can be seen as soon as 1 week following the treatment. However, the collagen remodeling process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements until 3 months after their treatment.
Sofwave is FDA approved to lift the eyebrow, neck and submental tissue and to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
