What is Sofwave?

Sofwave™ is an FDA cleared, non-invasive treatment of fine lines and wrinkles using a next generation SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology.

Sofwave uses ultrasound technology for:
• Lifting the neck, eyebrow and submental (under the chin)
• Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
• Improvement in the appearance of cellulite
• Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
• Improvement in the appearance of skin laxity on the upper arms

This breakthrough technology delivers a new standard of care to aesthetic treatments, providing safe aesthetic treatments for patients. With an exceptional safety profile that treats all skin types, Sofwave is a fast non-invasive treatment (30-45 minutes) that provides no interruption to daily routines for recovery.

How does Sofwave work?

Sofwave’s unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology generates heat at the exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel warmness of the skin but a topical anesthetic cream just prior to the treatment limits discomfort.

The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Following the treatment, there are no sensations and there is no need to apply special care on the skin. Daily care can be resumed immediately post treatment.

What results can I expect?

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.

In Sofwave™’s clinical trials, results have been shown in as little as, post one treatment.

Before & After

How is Sofwave different?

Invasive laser treatments like Fraxel require healing periods that may impact your daily routine. While non-invasive alternatives like IPL require multiple treatments to see results. Sofwave is unique in providing one treatment results with no downtime.

Ultherapy is another treatment that also uses ultrasound technology. The primary difference is that Sofwave uses ultrasound waves and Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy.

NYDG offers both Ultherapy and Sofwave. During the cosmetic consultation, the NYDG board certified dermatologist will recommend the best treatment option for your aesthetic goals.
