As you age, your skin changes. Starting in our mid-20’s, collagen and elastin start to break down causing our skin to wrinkle. Everyone goes through the aging process at different rates. Some people are lucky enough to avoid signs of aging through their thirties, while others start showing signs as early as 20. Let us introduce you to Sofwave, an innovative treatment that rebuilds collagen in your skin.
What is Sofwave
Sofwave is a new, clinically proven, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen and is FDA cleared for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave is a skin-tightening device that utilizes breakthrough ultrasound technology to revitalize the skin by addressing mild to modest skin laxity through the stimulation of new collagen production.
It uses a unique delivery form of ultrasound waves, enabling a fast and safe treatment for all skin colors and can be done on the face, jowls, neck and chest.
How does the Sofwave work?
Sofwave is a skin tightening treatment available at our Santa Monica office. Sofwave is the next generation of noninvasive cosmetic procedures designed to revitalize skin and help combat signs of aging. Sofwave uses ultrasound waves to deliver heat at a precise depth within the skin.
This heat promotes your body’s healing process, including the flooding of collagen into the targeted area. This collagen stimulation then provides improved structural support and some volume to the site, combating any fine lines, skin sagging, wrinkles.
What to expect during a Sofwave session
This device delivers heat at exactly 1.5 mm deep into the dermis, which is responsible for keeping your skin smooth. Many patients describe the sensation from the Sofwave device as warmth or tingling.
Patients looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles should expect a maximum of 45 minutes for their first session. Sofwave was designed to prevent patients from having to plan days around their facial rejuvenation – it can even be done during your lunch hour!
Sofwave is a highly effective treatment that delivers visible results in a single treatment. However, the collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks. Patients should expect to see ongoing improvements for up to 3 months after their treatment.
Recovering from a Sofwave treatment
Sofwave is a noninvasive treatment, therefore, you do not have to worry about having any recovery or downtime after the procedure. Patients are not expected to experience long-lasting side effects or adjust their usual routine in any way.
