Sofwave™ is a clinically proven, non-invasive approach to remodeling collagen within the skin, which improves facial lines and wrinkles and a lifting effect to the eyebrows, neck and submental region.
Using proprietary Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at a depth of 1.5mm and temperature to rejuvenate collagen and elastin fibers and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
This non invasive, quick treatment treats all skin types and requires no downtime.
Ideal candidates are those who are in good physical condition, with mild to moderate soft tissues and skin laxity, looking for subtle gradual improvement with brow or cheek, jowls or neck sagging, or those wishing to delay signs of ageing (generally aged between 40-60 years). Traditional full face lift is better for more advanced ageing with platysmal banding and severe skin laxity.
Sofwave is a highly effective treatment that can deliver visible results in a single treatment. Usually after 1 week a difference is noticed and as the collagen regenerates the results will continue to improve over a period of 12 weeks, with the skin becoming smoother, tighter and lifted.
While Sofwave won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I see results?
Results are completely natural-looking and can be seen immediately after the treatment, but take 3-6 months to see the final result. Some people need a second treatment at 6 months to enhance the results.
70-80% of patients see a visible skin tightening result and 80% of patients in the FDA study saw b/w 2-4 mm lift in the eyebrow height.
Is Sofwave safe?
Yes, it’s completely safe and FDA approved for skin tightening.
What is the downtime?
There is no downtime. As with any aesthetic treatment, you may experience some mild, localized swelling or tenderness but it usually goes away very quickly.
How long do the effects last?
The gradual stimulation of your own collagen production means effects can last between 12-24 months.
“I went to Dr. Sabrina for my treatment and it did wonders to my skin. My skin felt lighter and tighter and more youthful just in two weeks after the treatment. I have always been scared of having treatments on my face but Dr. Sabrina took really good care of me and the treatment was painless!
I’m so happy my skin looks and feels more lifted without any invasive procedures.
Thank you 😊
