The Rejuvenating Power of Collagen

Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of bouncy, smooth, youthful skin. These proteins are crucial for healing, elasticity, and a hydrated appearance. The bad news? These start to break down in your mid-20s, which seems a little unfair. 

Don’t worry–there are ways to combat this process without requiring invasive procedures like surgery. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment that helps restore lost collagen and keep you looking fresh, Sofwave™ might be for you.

What Is Sofwave™? 

Sofwave™ is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that induces collagen production at the dermal level, helping to repair damage and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lift the brows, tighten underneath the chin, and contour the neck for a sculpted, youthful look in just one session. 

Sofwave™ uses Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, which passes through the top layer of skin (the epidermis) and reaches deeper into the mid-dermal layer, which contains collagen fibers. Operating at the ideal depth and temperature for effective results, the ultrasound technology works to painlessly penetrate the skin and rejuvenate and repair damaged collagen fibers. 

As the ultrasound technology gently heats mid-dermal tissue, the body naturally responds with its healing response: collagen production. In turn, the collagen begins to build up in the treatment area, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumping tissues for a lifted look, and improving skin laxity. 

What Are the Benefits of Sofwave™? 

Sofwave™ belongs to a family of treatment options that are considered “prejuvenating.” These treatments are ideal supplements to a healthy skin care regimen and provide long-term, rejuvenating results with continued use. 

Prejuvenation is a fantastic idea for younger patients who want to maintain the look of their youthful skin–and they can also prolong the need for more invasive surgery down the line. 

Sofwave™ and other prejuvenation treatments are also ideal for older patients who have already received facial rejuvenation surgeries, such as a facelift or brow lift, and want to maintain the results of their procedures. 

Essentially, prejuvenation is a supplementary treatment combined with daily skin care to significantly improve and preserve skin health. 

Adding Sofwave™ to your skincare routine can provide the following benefits: 

  • Lifted brows, contoured cheekbones, and a tightened jawline
  • Smoothed fine lines and wrinkles
  • Overall plump, bouncy skin 
  • A more sculpted appearance to the face

With continued use, Sofwave™ can help boost collagen production for a long-term solution without invasive surgery, downtime, recovery, or scars. It’s a win-win. 

What Is the Sofwave™ Procedure Like? 

Your Sofwave™ treatment couldn’t be more straightforward. No preparation is necessary for your procedure; just arrive with clean skin. Your Sofwave™ specialist may apply a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) to your face for optimum comfort. 

Sofwave™ takes between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas and the severity of your concerns. Your specialist will pass the device over your skin, heating the lower dermal tissues. You may feel some warmth, but this is manageable, and many patients note that treatment is quite soothing. 

Sofwave™ Recovery

No recovery or downtime is associated with Sofwave™ treatments—they are completely non-invasive, so there are no needles, incisions, or puncture wounds. 

The treatment area may feel warm to the touch and have slight redness, but this should subside within an hour to a day. 

Sofwave™ is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Unlike light-based therapies, there is no risk of burning with Sofwave™. 

Most patients see results after one treatment session. However, this may vary depending on the severity of concerns and your specific goals for the procedure. Your Sofwave™ specialist can create a custom treatment plan to suit your needs.
