Get tighter wrinkle-free skin with Sofwave in Delray Beach. Sofwave is a skin tightening and lifting ultrasound device that stimulates collagen production. The treatment is completely non-invasive and requires zero downtime. This game-changing device provides great results even after your treatment.

Our team of medical professionals at Allenby Cosmetic Dermatology is trained to perform safe and effective Sofwave treatments. When you book a consultation, we custom-tailor your treatment plan to achieve your dream skin.

What Is Sofwave?

Sofwave is an ultrasound device specifically created as a skin-rejuvenation option to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles on the face, brows, neck, submental area (under the chin), and other parts of the body.

The ultrasound waves target the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, where collagen and elastin are produced. New collagen and elastin fibers restore support, tightening sagging skin. With an increase in collagen and elastin, the treated skin becomes plump, firm, and hydrated.

How Does Sofwave Work?

Sofwave works by creating controlled micro-injuries in the area for treatment. This will trigger the fibroblasts in the layers of your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, improving skin quality and elasticity and rejuvenating your skin.

Since Sofwave uses ultrasound technology, it is very safe and creates only minimal discomfort. Clients can expect their Sofwave treatment to be pain-free thanks to the integrated cooling mechanism. Topical anesthesia can be used beforehand to ensure the patient’s comfort during the treatment.

What Makes SOFWAVE Different?

Sofwave works in the same way that radiofrequency and microneedling treatments do—the ultrasound waves used in Sofwave also trigger the body’s natural healing process by creating small and controlled injuries in the dermis. This improves signs of skin aging. What makes Sofwave stand out from other treatments is the technology that prevents damage to nerves, fat, and blood vessels.

Sofwave sends ultrasound waves up to 1.5 millimeters into the skin, to the layers where collagen is abundant. This controlled and uniform depth avoids damage to the outer layers of the skin, deeper tissues, muscles, bones, facial nerves, fat, and blood vessels.

Am I a Good Candidate for Sofwave?

The best candidates for a Sofwave treatment are healthy individuals who want to prevent or correct mild to moderate signs of aging. This treatment is a good option for those who want a quick treatment with no recovery period.

A Sofwave treatment may not be safe for people with open wounds and cystic acne. Those who have implants like pacemakers may experience interference from ultrasound. If any of the previously mentioned situations apply, consult with us to explore your options.

As part of your consultation, we will perform a skin assessment to determine if Sofwave is the best treatment for your skin. Arrange your consultation today.

Your SOFWAVE Consultation

A Sofwave consultation will involve a conversation about your appearance goals and an assessment of your skin concerns. Be ready to discuss your complete medical history as well to make sure you are eligible for the treatment.

You will be given an overview of the Sofwave treatment process and a timeline of possible results. The dos and don’ts before and after the treatment will also be discussed in detail to help you get the full benefits of the treatment.

How to Prepare for a SOFWAVE Treatment

Since a Sofwave treatment does not damage fat, tissues, nerves, or blood vessels, no strict preparation is necessary for the skin. On the day of your Sofwave appointment, do not wear makeup. It is best to use mild soap on your skin.

What Happens During a Sofwave Treatment?

A Sofwave treatment will begin with applying topical anesthesia to the selected area for treatment. While waiting for the numbing cream to take effect, the Sofwave device will be calibrated according to your skin type, appearance goals, and energy level. The device is equipped with a real-time monitoring system to protect your skin.

Once you are ready, the Sofwave device will be moved across the treatment area, emitting ultrasound energy. Minimal discomfort may be experienced. Depending on your treatment plan, the device may be moved across the area for treatment twice or more. After even coverage has been provided, treatment will be complete. The whole session can last for 30 to 45 minutes.

Are There Any Side Effects After a Sofwave Treatment?

Expect redness and minimal swelling after a Sofwave treatment. These should go away shortly. Your skin will also be very sensitive for a brief time during your initial recovery, so make sure to wear the recommended sunscreen.

How Long Do Sofwave Treatment Results Last?

It’s important to remember that enhanced collagen and elastin production creates natural results gradually. Initial results are immediately visible after a Sofwave treatment, and best results can be experienced three months after the treatment. The skin will be tighter, and fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced.

Results can be seen for one to two years after the treatment. To preserve your results, avoid lifestyle choices that can speed up the skin’s aging process, such as prolonged sun exposure and smoking. Proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are key.

Most patients only need one treatment of Sofwave. Those with severe laxity and sagging may get a recommendation to undergo two Sofwave treatments in one year, with an interval of six months between the sessions.

How Much Do Sofwave Treatments Cost?

The total cost of Sofwave treatments will depend on the selected areas and the recommended number of sessions. During the consultation, we will discuss your treatment plan’s price and recommend the ideal number of Sofwave sessions for optimal results.

How Old Should I Be to Receive a Sofwave Treatment?

Most patients in their thirties or older who have begun to notice mild to moderate six laxity are excellent candidates for Sofwave therapy. It can be a phenomenal preventative treatment to potentially avoid more invasive procedures in the future.

How Do I Know if I Should Get Sofwave Therapy or Another Cosmetic Procedure?

The Sofwave procedure is ideal for creating smoother, more youthful skin, but where your symptoms have occurred and your other treatment goals can affect which protocol is right for you. It’s possible that a combination of different procedures might be the best choice for your needs. Your exact treatment plan will be determined during your consultation.
