What Is Sofwave?

Sofwave is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skin treatment system that reduces fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen with ultrasound beams. The Sofwave system utilizes SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam, a next-generation technology that is at the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine.

Sofwave’s unique ultrasound delivery system creates a fractional heating effect, and this is what effectively stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, which leads to a significant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Does A Sofwave Treatment Work?

During your Sofwave treatment, the device is passed over your face and ultrasound technology is applied. The Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology generates heat at the exact depth necessary for treating wrinkles in the underlying skin. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmth. Treatment is made more comfortable for you by applying a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism, called Sofcool™, that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.

The increase and regeneration of collagen in the treatment areas cause your body to rebuild and restructure the skin, resulting in tighter, firmer, rejuvenated skin that has few wrinkles and fine lines. This is why Sofwave is clinically proven to remodel the skin structure, improve facial lines and reduce wrinkles. Your outstanding results should appear over time with only a single 30-45-minute treatment. Some patients may need two, depending on the condition of their skin.


Following the treatment, there is no discomfort or other significant side effects to worry about, although your skin may be slightly red with limited swelling for up to a few hours. You can get right back to your normal work schedule or routines. No special care needs to be taken with the skin. Your usual daily skincare routine can be continued without restrictions.

Am I A Candidate For Sofwave?

Candidates for Sofwave are men or women who have mild-to-moderate facial fine lines and wrinkles, and mildly sagging facial and neck skin. Ideal candidates for Sofwave should meet the following requirements:

  • Would like a non-surgical solution to wrinkles and fine lines
  • Are generally in good health
  • Have no rashes, outbreaks, infections, or open wounds in the treatment area
  • Have no implants in the area to be treated
  • Do not have a dermal filler in the treatment area

When Can I Expect To See Results?

The collagen regeneration process occurs naturally within the body and can take time to reach its full effect. You will start to notice ongoing improvements within the first couple of weeks, which will continue to build over the next couple of months until you see the final, rejuvenated results. You will be able to enjoy these results for about one year, at which point it is recommended to repeat the treatment.
