Sofwave

Sofwave utilises advanced ultrasound technology to deliver focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin. The key principle behind Sofwave is the controlled application of this energy to stimulate collagen production, leading to skin tightening and rejuvenation. Sofwave is used to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and is effective in tightening loose or sagging skin. By promoting collagen synthesis, Sofwave helps improve skin elasticity, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance.

About

Sofwave is primarily used for non-invasive facial and body skin tightening and rejuvenation. The treatment is designed to address various cosmetic concerns related to aging and skin laxity. Some of the common uses of Sofwave include, wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, facial and body contouring and improving skin texture

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Sofwave device emits ultrasound waves that are focused on specific target areas of the skin. Unlike some other ultrasound-based treatments, Sofwave uses a specific frequency of ultrasound energy designed to reach the mid-dermis, a layer of the skin where collagen fibers are located.

The ultrasound energy is absorbed by the targeted tissues in the mid-dermis. This controlled heating stimulates a thermal response without causing damage to the outer layers of the skin.

The heat generated by the ultrasound triggers a wound healing response in the skin. This response includes the production of new collagen and the remodeling of existing collagen fibers. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, contributing to its firmness and elasticity.

As collagen production increases, the skin undergoes positive changes. The new collagen fibers contribute to improved skin tightness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The overall result is a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Sofwave is considered non-invasive because it does not involve incisions or the removal of outer layers of skin. This means there is minimal damage to the skin surface, leading to a faster recovery compared to more invasive procedures.
