Skin Tightening With Sofwave
No one likes to see loose or sagging skin on the face and neck. Jowling, or loose drapes of skin that hang off the jawline, might a natural part of the aging process, but this can be extremely distressing for both women and men. While a facelift or a neck lift is a fantastic procedure to eliminate loose skin, it is still a surgery requiring anesthesia, incisions and downtime. Many patients don’t have the time, or don’t like the permanent nature of surgery.
For those that are looking for options to treat non-invasively, Sofwave is an excellent option and it is available in our office in Ponte Vedra.
Smart Mode of Action. Volumetric Directional Thermal Impact (VDTI)
The high-frequency ultrasound beams propagate through the tissue and create an array of volumetric cylindrical-shaped 3D thermal zones in the dermis separated by regions of undamaged tissue, thereby creating a fractional effect in the mid dermis.
The fractional ultrasound effect creates a controlled and directional, thermal impact (60-70°C) parallel to the skin, at depth of 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. The targeted treatment zones stimulate an inflammatory wound- healing response involving neo-collagenesis and neo-elastinogenesis all of which lead to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Sofwave: A Ground-Breaking Ultrasound Technology for Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As you grow older, your skin becomes thinner and less elastic and you develop fine lines and wrinkles. These age-related changes can make you older than you feel. Skin rejuvenation treatments can help take the years off your face. Now, an innovative new technology called Sofwave has made it easier than ever before to look and feel younger. You can get noticeable improvement in the quality of your skin with just one quick, painless treatment in the office. Continue reading to learn more about Sofwave and what it can do for you.
What is Sofwave?
Sofwave is an FDA-cleared device for the non-invasive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles in aging skin. The system uses next-generation synchronous ultrasound parallel beam technology that is designed to maximize patient convenience and minimize downtime. This means you will notice a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines after one fast, convenient, comfortable office treatment. No needles, no cuts, no anesthesia, no risks associated with surgery. And no disruption of your daily routine.
How does Sofwave work? How can it help with fine lines and wrinkles?
The Sofwave system generates ultrasound energy which produces a fractional heating effect in the skin. The platform is designed to deliver the ultrasound energy and heat at the right depth so that there is no damage to the skin surface or underlying structures. The heat stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin in the dermis (the middle layer of skin). Collagen and elastin are the proteins that give the skin its smooth, youthful appearance. With age, the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin decrease, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin, the Sofwave treatment leads to tighter, firmer, smoother skin with a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
How long does a typical Sofwave treatment last? How many treatments will I need?
A typical Sofwave treatment for the full face lasts around 30-45 minutes. This means you can fit it into your busy lifestyle, perhaps even schedule a “lunchtime facial.” The treatment itself is easy to perform and pain-free with no downtime, meaning you can return to your active lifestyle immediately afterward.
Many clients see noticeable improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after just one Sofwave treatment. However, some clients may require an additional treatment, depending on the amount of skin damage. Our staff will examine your skin and advise you about the number of Sofwave treatments you will need to get optimal results.
How Long Does It Take To See Results From Sofwave?
The results of a Sofwave treatment may not be visible immediately. This is because it takes the body some time to regenerate new collagen. You will notice some improvement in skin quality about 2 weeks after your treatment. You will continue to notice ongoing improvement in the smoothness of your skin in the 3 months following your Sofwave treatment. Clinical trials have shown that many clients need only one treatment to see noticeable results.
What Does The Sofwave Treatment Feel Like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, patients may feel warm sensations on the skin. Sofwave is comfortable with the application of a topical anesthetic just prior to treatment Post treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care to the skin Clients can resume their daily skincare routine immediately after treatment.
