Starting in our mid-20’s, collagen and elastin start to break down causing our skin to wrinkle.

Sofwave is a new, clinically-proven, no downtime, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen. Sofwave uses a unique delivery form of ultrasound waves, enabling a fast and safe treatment for all ages and skin colours and can be done on all facial areas.

Using proprietary Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™, energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface (the epidermis), heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the right depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibres and improve the overall appearance of ageing skin.

    How does Sofwave work?

    The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm under the skin. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling SofCool™ mechanism that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenasis, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

    How long does the Sofwave treatment take?

    The treatment itself is fast, taking approximately 30 – 45 minutes for the full face.

    How long does it take to see results?

    Immediate results can be seen as soon as 1 week following the treatment. However, 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.

    How is Sofwave different from other cosmetic procedure?

    Today there are various energy-based technologies designed to treat facial lines and wrinkles, among them: ablative and non-ablative laser technology, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), radiofrequency devices and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Yet, the need for non-invasive aesthetic treatments with proven efficacy, safety and minimal downtime, are still unfulfilled. The more aggressive options can cause damage to the upper skin, which in turn, requires a long healing period and considerable downtime. In addition, there is a higher risk of side effects, including discolouration and discomfort. Even RF micro needling treatments, that have recently become popular, can be uncomfortable, risky and require lengthy downtime. On the other hand, other non-invasive solutions haven’t shown adequate results High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) has also become an accepted mode of treatment for treating wrinkles. This treatment has been associated with multiple drawbacks, among them, limited treatment areas, longer treatment times, excessive pain and additional adverse effects, such as burns and injury to nerves. Sofwave’s unique Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ protects the skin surface with a cooling mechanism and the treatment is effective, safe and comfortable for most patients. There is no downtime or pain post treatment.

    Can Sofwave replace a surgical procedure?

    Sofwave is a great alternative for those who are not ready to take that extra step and undergo plastic surgery. The results will be more dramatic in a surgical procedure, but there are risks involved with a surgical procedure, with the anaesthesia and the occurrence of scar tissue. With Sofwave, there is no downtime at all and no risk of scarring, infection or nerve injury.

    How is Sofwave different from laser treatments?

    Sofwave uses sound waves which allow energy to bypass the surface of the skin to treat the underlying skin layer at a depth of 1.5 mm (the mid-dermis). This depth is perfect for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave can treat all skin colors, where lasers cannot. Lasers usually treat the more superficial skin layers and cannot go deeper without damaging the skin surface, therefore running a greater risk of burning.

    What does the Sofwave treatment feel like?

    As the ultrasound energy is delivered, patients may feel warmness of the skin. Treatment is comfortable simply by applying a topical anaesthetic cream just prior to the treatment. Following treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Patient may resume their daily care immediately post treatment.

    How much does Sofwave cost?

    The cost of a Sofwave® treatment can vary based on geographic location, and from clinic to clinic. Exact pricing should be discussed with your physician before undergoing treatment.
