Sofwave Q & A

What is Sofwave? 

Sofwave comfortably delivers Intense Ultrasound Beam™ (IUB) technology, providing a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and restoration of natural smooth skin features, no matter the skin type. 

Sofwave clinically-proven approach to rebuild collagen, improve facial lines and reduce wrinkles. It uses Intense Ultrasound Beam™ (IUB) proprietary technology which is FDA cleared. Sofwave provides superior rejuvenation for your facial skin.

Starting in our mid-20’s, collagen and elastin starts to break down causing our skin to wrinkle. Sofwave is a new, clinically-proven, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen, thereby improving facial lines and wrinkles. Using proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam TechnologyTM (IUB), ultrasound 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 fibers and improve the overall appearance of aging skin.

Why Sofwave?

A multi-center clinical studies evaluated the clinical effects of Sofwave’s ultrasound technology on facial wrinkles and necklines, 88% of patients were marked as improved or significantly improved 12 weeks after a single treatment.

Proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam™ (IUB) technology with integrated cooling, enables treatment at the optimal depth in the mid-dermis, while ensuring no damage to the epidermis or to the underlying structures beneath the dermis.

Ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the right depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibres and improve the overall appearance of aging skin. Patients can get right back to normal life immediately following treatment.

This quick full face and neck treatment is more comfortable, easy to perform and can actually be done during a lunch break; taking approximately 30-40 minutes.

Darker skin types are more susceptible to burns with laser and light-based therapies. With Ultrasound, the treatment is safe and effective regardless of the patient’s skin type.

In a multi-centre clinical study, 72% of the patients were satisfied with their results and rated them as improved to very much improved.

How Does Sofwave Work?

The ideal depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Intense Ultrasound Beam™ (IUB) technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism 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.
