What is Sofwave?
Sofwave Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™, FDA-cleared to improve facial lines and wrinkles of the face and neck.
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.

- Treats all skin types
- High patient satisfaction
How it Works
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 fibers and improve the overall appearance of aging skin.
Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. No special care is required afterward, aside from basic skin maintenance and sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen.
Frequently Asked Questions
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 procedures?
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 discoloration 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.
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 anesthetic 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.
