Sofwave™ Treatment in Stuart, FL & Treasure Coast Area
Sagging skin is one of the first signs of aging. You may notice a loss of firmness under the chin, in the neck, around the eyes, in the midface, and along the jawline. For those patients who are interested in non-surgical options for skin rejuvenation, Sofwave™ can be a solution. This skin-tightening technology uses powerful ultrasound energy to boost collagen and elastin levels, laying the foundation for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What is Sofwave™?
Sofwave™ is an ultrasound device cleared by the FDA to treat facial lines and wrinkles and lift sagging skin around the eyebrows, neck, and under the chin. This ultrasound energy is precisely directed through the skin’s surface to heat the mid-dermal tissue at the optimal depth and temperature. It helps to rejuvenate collagen fibers and improve the appearance of the skin to be smoother and more supple.
What Does the Sofwave™ Treatment Involve?
This procedure is non-invasive, causes minimal discomfort, and is a once-per-year treatment. During the process, patients are resting comfortably the entire time. We apply a topical numbing cream to the skin before treatment and use nitrous gas to keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure.
Once the face is numb, we use a handheld device to heat the skin in a grid-like pattern. Additionally, Sofwave™ has a built-in cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.
The treatment takes about 60 minutes, and most patients find it to be comfortable. After, the skin may be slightly red and inflamed but it will go away the next day. Patients may resume their daily care immediately post-treatment.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Sofwave™?
Sofwave™ is safe and approved to be used on all genders and skin tones anytime during the year. It is best used on anyone over 30 years of age who has mild to moderate skin aging. Potential patients should have some degree of signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is a great alternative for those who are not ready to take that extra step and undergo plastic surgery. However, it is also a great procedure for post-facelift patients that want spot treatments after their procedure.
What Results Can I Expect?
Patients can experience firmer, more elastic skin and a lifted appearance in the midface, under the chin, and around the eyebrows, after Sofwave™. Patients may see immediate results after a Sofwave™ treatment, but the full benefits of the treatment may not be seen for up to 12 weeks, and results last up to one year. That is because it takes time for the body to produce new collagen. A multi-center clinical study revealed that most patients were marked as improved or significantly improved 12 weeks after a single treatment.
