Have you grown to accept facial fine lines and wrinkles as a part of aging? Do you routinely try to camouflage them under make up, so they are not as noticeable? Do you long to revitalize your complexion without surgery? An innovative ultrasound treatment by Sofwave™ may be the answer for you!
What Is Sofwave™?
Starting in our mid-20s, collagen and elastin in our skin begins to break down, causing the skin to lose suppleness. Sofwave™ is a breakthrough technology that uses ultrasound energy to heat mid-dermal tissue to stimulate the production of collagen. An integrated cooling mechanism protects the upper layers of skin from damage. Sofwave is a unique approach to help rebuild collagen so that the skin is tighter and facial fine lines and wrinkles are reduced. The results are a rejuvenized complexion with minimal downtime and no unpleasant side effects. Many patients see marked improvement after one treatment.
What Is Treatment Like?
Sofwave™ is safe for all skin types. A typical treatment takes 30-45 minutes for the full face and neck region. A topical anesthetic cream may be applied to the treatment area first, and the patient will feel a warming sensation after treatment begins. Following the procedure, the patient may resume regular daily activities. No special care is needed, and side effects will be minimal. There may be a slight redness with limited swelling, but this should resolve in a few hours.
What Results Will I See?
Results are seen in the first week post treatment, with continuing improvements over three months as collagen regeneration occurs. Most patients will need only one treatment. Sofwave™ is less aggressive than other energy-based technologies such as lasers, which require a long healing period and considerable down time. It’s a gentler, less abrasive procedure than micro needling treatments. This non-invasive treatment is a great alternative for those who are not yet ready to undergo aggressive procedures or plastic surgery.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
Good candidates for Sofwave™ will have mild to moderate signs of skin aging with facial fine lines and wrinkles. For patients with more advanced signs of aging, Sofwave™ may not be an appropriate substitute for a surgical procedure.
