How is Sofwave Different from Other Skin Tightening Devices?

Posted on May 17, 2022

Did you know that collagen production can begin to slow as early as your 20s? When this occurs, your skin’s elasticity declines which can lead to lax skin, wrinkles, and lines. If you are beginning to notice loose skin on the eyebrow area, under the chin, and on the neck? If so, we have an effective solution for you! Softwave skin tightening is a cutting-edge treatment to tighten lax skin for a more youthful appearance.

What is Softwave?

The Softwave is a cutting-edge, non-invasive wrinkle treatment that employs high-frequency, ultrasound-based technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a building block for strong, flexible, and youthful skin, so it is very important to maintain a youthful and healthy appearance. This treatment is also popular among patients looking for a no downtime improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles of their face and neck.

What to Expect During Treatment

During your Softwave treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure you are comfortable. Then, a handheld device is used to emit ultrasound energy to the treatment area. Treatment is completely non-invasive and can usually be completed within 30-45 minutes.

What Makes Softwave Different?

Software stands out from other skin tightening treatments in that it uses the intense ultrasound beam technology to penetrate the skin and promote collagen production and contraction within the skin. It also completely bypasses the epidermis so that there is no downtime after. During treatment, the device cools the surface of the skin to protect it from heat injury and minimize discomfort. The Softwave technology achieves a precise tightening effect within the dermis while preventing any damage to the underlying structures of surrounding skin.

Benefits of Softwave Skin Tightening

There is an array of benefits that come with the Softwave treatment, including the following.

  • Absolutely no downtime: This treatment requires no recovery or downtime, which means you can resume your regular activities right away. This treatment is a great choice for those with busy schedules!
  • Minimal to no pain during treatment: Softwave is non-invasive and there is minimal to no discomfort associated, making it a popular choice.
  • Technology protects the skin from heat damage: This technology bypasses the topmost layer of skin and protects the skin from heat damage and prolonged redness after treatment.
