If you find yourself concerned about skin laxity and the visible signs of aging, rest assured that you’re not alone. Many individuals begin experiencing skin loosening, known as skin laxity, typically between the ages of 35 and 40. This occurs due to the natural decline in collagen networks, elastin fibers, and hyaluronic acid—an essential molecule responsible for maintaining skin moisture.
In addition to age-related factors, there are other circumstances that can contribute to skin laxity. Significant or rapid weight loss, as well as pregnancy, can cause the skin to become loose. Moreover, certain health and lifestyle factors play a role in skin laxity, including menopause, damage from ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, artificial tanning, specific medications such as steroids and corticosteroids, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption.
What is Sofwave?
The One treatment to rule them all
Sofwave is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that uses high-frequency ultrasound waves to promote collagen production and improve skin texture and elasticity. It is a popular choice among patients who want to achieve younger-looking skin without the need for surgery or downtime.
With one treatment , yes ONE treatment, you can invest in the quality of your skin not only for today but for the future. As we age, we need to consider more than the maintenance of facials but getting deeper into the skin to produce the collagen it needs for you to be at your best.

How does Sofwave work?
The Sofwave device emits high-frequency ultrasound waves that penetrate deep into the skin stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of new blood vessels.
Ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the right depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen. Delivering Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, with very minimal downtime, you can expect to in a single 30-45 minute treatment, no matter the skin type to see results.
Sofwave’s unique technology enables the controlled delivery of energy, in terms of amount and location, while protecting the skin surface with an integrated cooling mechanism, without interruption to your daily routine.
The ultrasound waves combined with the device’s integrated cooling system, protects the outer layers of the skin so that this non-invasive treatment can fit into your active lifestyle allowing you to go back to your daily activities without having to hide away for days waiting for your skin to settle and heal.

Sofwave utilizes its exclusive Intense Ultrasound Beam Technology™ (IUB), employing sound wave energy that penetrates the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. By delivering 7 high-frequency ultrasound beams into the tissue, it effectively boosts collagen production and rejuvenates the skin. Through this procedure, lax skin is tightened, and the visibility of wrinkles is significantly enhanced. Clinical studies have shown that an impressive 86% of participants experienced a noticeable improvement in the appearance of wrinkles.
Sofwave is a more comfortable and low-downtime alternative to other treatments. It offers integrated cooling, which 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.
SOFWAVE SKIN TIGHTENING & WRINKLE REDUCTION
Sofwave works to restore the collagen support that firms and tones skin – and it helps reduce wrinkles by improving that elasticity and restoring the bounce of youthful skin. Sofwave works best for wrinkles that are formed by repetitive movements, such as smiling, squinting, pursing your lips, etc. (crow’s feet and fine lines around the mouth, cheek, and undereye) versus those that are caused by volume loss, like deep folds around the mouth and jowls. This is because wrinkles caused by repetitive motion are really just repeated bending and breaking down of collagen directly below that part of the skin’s surface, and when we can restore and repair that collagen, the skin looks smoother and more youthful.
Sofwave helps remove wrinkles in a very natural and subtle way – think of it as a filter for real life! For those persons not wanting to use anti-wrinkle treatments like botox but still want to soften the lines this is a great option to consider. If you’re seeking a comprehensive and impactful single treatment for your entire face or face and neck, without the risk of unnatural outcomes, Sofwave should be at the top of your consideration list.
HOW DOES SOFWAVE TIGHTEN THE SKIN?
Precise Heat. Precise Locations.
Sofwave’s ultrasound beam generates cylindrical thermal zones that run parallel to the skin at a depth of approximately 1.5mm within the skin (see diagram below).
These thermal zones precisely heat the mid-dermis, triggering a “healing” response in the body.
Over the next 6 weeks to 3 months, new collagen is produced, resulting in skin tightening and rejuvenation.
Overall, Sofwave offers a non-invasive, customizable, and safe treatment option for patients looking to improve their skin. Its high-frequency ultrasound waves make it effective at addressing a variety of skin concerns, and its minimal downtime makes it a convenient option for busy patients
Before and After
Frequently Asked Questions
Because of Sofwave’s ability to stimulate your body’s production of collagen, which is the natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness, patients could achieve the following results:
- Tighter, lifted appearance, especially in areas that have started to droop or sag (e.g., brows, cheeks, jawline, neck)
- Toned and firmer skin with a youthful bounce
According to its clinical studies, 88% of patients were marked as improved or significantly improved in the appearance of facial wrinkles and necklines 12 weeks after a single Sofwave treatment.
Sofwave helps tighten skin and improve the appearance of fine lines on the chin, brow, cheeks and neck areas. This innovative, nonsurgical treatment can give patients tighter, firmer skin, and boost collagen production while requiring little to no downtime.
No specific preparation is required.
The amount of time varies based upon the individual and the coverage area. We start off by applying a powerful numbing cream to the areas which are being treated. We also can provide oral pain medication for those who may feel particularly nervous or anxious. The duration of your actual treatment will be about 20-45 minutes, depending on which areas are treated.
There is some discomfort associated with the procedure and varies from patient to patient. Some areas may be more sensitive than others and it will depend on how much energy is needed to optimize results. In order to reduce the discomfort in those area, we use a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure. The cooling device at the tip of the ultrasound transducer helps reduce discomfort as well. Most patients tolerate treatment well. When necessary, oral pain medications can be administered in office.
There is no real downtime from Sofwave. No bruising and no pain. The majority of patients have no visible signs of the procedure immediately after completion. You do not need to take time off from work, social activities, workouts, or even red carpet appearances.
Some patients may experience a bit of transient redness in the treatment area which may last up to an hour. You can easily cover any redness with makeup right away, if you like.
Sofwave treatments are safe and the technology is FDA-cleared. According to Sofwave’s clinical studies, its safety profile was excellent and there were no adverse events reported. Sofwave has the ability to measure and control skin temperature and comes with a cooling mechanism that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. In other words, Sofwave accurately targets the thermal effect while providing optimal epidermal protection.
The majority of patients will only need one treatment, while others will benefit from an additional treatment. The number of treatments will depend on how much skin laxity you have and how you respond to the Sofwave treatment. Treatments can be repeated annually to maintain the results.
The safety profile is strong. The integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool™ protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. No device-related adverse events were reported in the clinical study.
Sofwave is well suited for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and neck. Someone in poor health, who smokes, or has excessive sun damage on their face is not a good candidate. Patients with more significant laxity will benefit more from a surgical procedure. If you are looking for a no downtime alternative for skin tightening of the face and neck, then Sofwave may be for you. As always, it is highly recommended that you schedule an in-person consultation to determine which treatment will be best for you.
Sofwave treatment stimulates new collagen. The process of neocollagenesis takes about 3-6 months. Most patients will start to see some results around 4-6 weeks after treatment, but should continue to see additional improvement over the following several months.
Sofwave is a non-invasive procedure which cannot achieve the same results as a surgical facelift. A facelift specifically targets the hanging jowls and the hanging neck. Sofwave is a less invasive treatment to tighten the fine lines and wrinkles of the face and neck. There is currently no non-surgical equivalent to a facelift. However, some people may think that they need a facelift when they may benefit from less invasive treatments such as Sofwave.

The results of Sofwave treatments can last for several months and up to a year or more, although some patients may require maintenance treatments to maintain their results.
Sofwave is generally considered safe, with minimal side effects. Some patients may experience redness or mild swelling after the treatment, but these side effects typically resolve within a few hours.
Sofwave can be used on all skin types, although patients with darker skin tones may be more sensitive to the treatment and may require a lower energy setting.
