Sofwave™ is the latest in non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments and offers a new generation in collagen induction technology. With a high-frequency, intense ultrasound beam, Sofwave™ can bypass the upper layers of the skin and induce collagen growth in the deep layers for a plumper, more youthful look over time. At the same time, gentle warming generated by ultrasound waves can contract collagen for noticeable skin tightening. With one treatment, you can enjoy a brighter, more rejuvenated look.
Before & After
Sofwave™ uses a specialized ultrasound beam that creates a cylindrical thermal zone in the middle layers of the skin where the collagen matrix exists. This generates a gentle warming effect which induces your skin into a healing response – while more collagen is generated, the existing collagen is tightened. All this is performed externally through a comfortable applicator with no incisions or needles necessary. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.
The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

- Lax skin
- 30 - 45 minutes
Sofwave™ is an effective option for areas of the face, neck, and décolletage where visible aging signs occur.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmness of the skin. Treatment is comfortable simply by applying a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Following the treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Daily care can be resumed immediately post treatment.
Typically, the treatment protocol calls for 1-2 treatments, depending on the patient’s skin condition. Because it is based on your current skin health, r provider will be able to better assess your skincare needs.
You may experience some minor redness and swelling which subsides within a few hours. Otherwise, there’s no bruising or discomfort after treatment. You’ll begin to notice your results emerge over the course of 4-6 weeks, which will continue to improve over the following months. The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in the 3-month period after their treatment. Our team can recommend the best way to maintain your results using our best in professional-grade skincare and other anti-aging treatments.
Sofwave™ is a non-invasive treatment for skin tightening. Clinical trials have shown the technology to be effective and safe. Immediately post treatment, the skin may appear slightly red with limited swelling for up to a few hours post treatment.
