Sofwave Treatment

Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania Dr Wang with Patient Devon, PA

During the natural aging process, the skin can start to sag and fine lines and wrinkles can appear. Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania has a long list of effective treatments to reduce the signs of aging and support healthier, younger-looking skin. A popular choice to target mild skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles is the Sofwave procedure.

What is Sofwave?

Sofwave is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that tackles fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin using ultrasound energy. It is an FDA-approved treatment that stimulates collagen production by safely heating deeper skin tissue below the surface. Our expert team of board-certified dermatologists offers this procedure in our Devon office.

Treatment Benefits

Sofwave is a safe and effective procedure for patients with any skin type or skin tone. The benefits include:

  • Minimal discomfort and pain
  • Little to no downtime
  • Suitable for all skin types and tones
  • Visible results in a few weeks
  • Reduction in skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • Safe energy that protects the epidermis (outer skin) layer from damage
  • Long-lasting results

Candidates for Sofwave

Laser treatments can have varying success in reducing the appearance of skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. Some may also be ineffective and potentially unsafe for some with darker skin tones. Sofwave works for men and women of all skin tones without potential adverse effects like hyperpigmentation. The treatment is ideal for individuals with:

  • Mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles
  • Mildly lax or sagging facial or neck skin

If you are looking for a fast, lasting, and non-invasive procedure, Sofwave may be right for you. Our team of board-certified dermatologists will work closely with you to identify which treatments will help you reach your aesthetic goals best.

How the Technology Works

Sofwave is an ultrasound-based technology that uses high-frequency sound waves to promote collagen production deep in the dermal structure. The energy bypasses the surface layer of skin, making it a safe treatment with little to no recovery time. The device cools the epidermal layer during the procedure while targeting the mid-dermis to achieve clinical tightening without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue.

The ultrasound beam creates cylindrical-shaped thermal zones under the skin in the mid-dermis, which allows for precise heating and a natural healing response. As the skin heals, it naturally produces collagen, creating smoother, tighter skin from the inside out.

What to Expect from a Sofwave Treatment

Topical anesthesia is applied prior to treatment, and patients are given the option for inhaled nitrous oxide during the procedure. The skin is cleansed to prepare it for treatment, and then ultrasound gel is applied to the target area. This gel creates a bond between the skin and the ultrasound device, which is how the treatment is performed. The handheld device channels energy directly to the skin and has a cooling feature to prevent damage to the epidermal layer and keep patients comfortable throughout the process.

The Sofwave device can cover large areas for quicker treatment sessions. Most treatments last 20-60 minutes per session. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, and most patients do not experience side effects. Patients may resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment and can resume their regular facial skin care regimen right away as well.

Sofwave Results

Patients frequently see results as soon as a few weeks after a treatment. While many patients only need one treatment, others benefit from additional treatment. It varies based on your goals, amount of fine lines and wrinkles, severity of skin laxity, and how your skin responds to the Sofwave treatment. Collagen regeneration can take several weeks, and patients should notice consistent improvement up to 3 months after treatment. Results are not considered permanent but are long-lasting with maintenance.

Sofwave results in healthier, younger-looking skin due to increased collagen production. Within several weeks of a treatment patients should notice:

  • Tighter skin and a more lifted appearance in target areas
  • Firmer and smoother skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Youthful and healthy glow

After Your Sofwave Treatment

The ultrasound beam is a precise technology that bypasses the skin’s outer layer to treat underlying tissue. The innovative technology and the cooling features ensure that patients can enjoy a non-invasive procedure with no downtime and typically no side effects afterward. Sofwave is an extremely safe treatment option for skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles. Our team of experts at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania can help you identify if and when more treatments are necessary.

Sofwave vs. Other Skin Tightening Treatments

Sofwave is different from many other skin tightening treatments because it is non-invasive. No needles, no pokes, no pain. It does not impact the outer layer of skin and still results in visible and effective results.
