SOFWAVE™

The Latest in Skin Tightening Technology

As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, making our skin appear saggy. In fact, it’s one of the first signs of aging. The skin around your eyebrows, chin, or neck may appear looser as you age, which can make us look older than we feel. SOFWAVE™ can turn back the clock on the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin.

  1. CONCERN: Fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. TREATMENT TIME: Each treatment takes between 30-90 minutes, and patients have to use numbing cream for the 40 minutes prior to their session.
  3. RESULTS: Smoother skin, a more youthful appearance.

What is SOFWAVE™?

If you’re interested in addressing stubborn fine lines and wrinkles without surgery, injections, or lasers, consider SOFWAVE™. This game-changing skin-tightening treatment uses a unique ultrasound technology, designed to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, leaving you with a noticeable reduction of fine lines and wrinkles that look natural.

Best of all, there is no recovery time associated with SOFWAVE™. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment.

How Does SOFWAVE™ Work?

SOFWAVE™ uses Proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam Technology™ (IUB), where sound wave energy passes through the skin’s surface. This technology uses 7 high frequency ultrasound beams that help boost your skin’s natural collagen production. With this procedure, you can revitalize the appearance of stubborn wrinkles and sagging skin.

What Areas Can SOFWAVE™ Treat?

With SOFWAVE™, you can stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, leaving you with tighter, firmer, and smoother skin with a noticeable reduction in stubborn fine lines and wrinkles, and lax skin. With no recovery time, you can get back to your daily activities and wait for your body to do the rest.

SOFWAVE™ is FDA approved to address the following concerns:
– Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
– Tightening lax skin under the chin
– Lifting the eyebrows
– Lifting sagging neck tissue

Achieve the youthful, glowing results you want without surgery or painful downtime with SOFWAVE™. To learn more, schedule a consultation with our specialists at SKIN FIVE.

What are the Benefits of Using SOFWAVE™?

SOFWAVE™ is a non-invasive treatment, which means you don’t have to worry about any recovery or downtime after your procedure. You don’t need to worry about long-lasting side effects or adjusting your schedule.

Other SOFWAVE™ benefits include:
– Fast results that can be seen as soon as 1 week after treatment
– Safe procedure and FDA cleared
– Quick 30–40-minute treatment for face/neck

Additionally, it’s a safe and effective treatment option for all skin types, as opposed to laser and light-based therapies that may cause burns on individuals with darker skin. Because it’s non-invasive with minimal recovery time, it’s often referred to as a mini facelift without the scalpel.

What You Can Expect From Your Session

A single treatment takes as little as 30-45 minutes, so you don’t need to block out a significant chunk of your day. Because this procedure is so quick and simple, you can get it done on your lunch break! Patients may feel warmness in their skin as the ultrasound energy is delivered. Let your SKIN FIVE provider know if you experience any pain or discomfort so they can apply a topical anesthetic. Following treatment, you should not experience any further discomfort, nor do you need to use specialized skincare.

Patients can expect to see results as early as 1 week after treatment. However, the body’s natural collagen regeneration process can take up to 12 weeks, so you should expect to see gradual changes in the 2-3 months following treatment.

Who is a Candidate for SOFWAVE™?

Anyone over the age of 30 who has mild to moderate wrinkles will experience better results. You may be a good candidate for a SOFWAVE™ treatment if one of the following applies:

– The skin around the eyebrow line, chin, neck, or décolletage is beginning to look or feel less firm
– You don’t need a facelift just yet
– You are not interested in or ready for surgical treatments

Most patients will only need one treatment. However, patients may benefit from an additional treatment depending on the condition of the skin and the desired result. Your SKIN FIVE provider will discuss your treatment plan and goals with you to get the most out of your treatment.
