Sofwave™ Skin Tightening

When did you first notice the skin along your jawline softening and wrinkles appearing on your neck? In a selfie? During a Zoom meeting? Our skin gradually loses elasticity as we age, leading to jowls, sagging brows, and loose neck skin. Sofwave skin tightening at our Toledo, Ohio, medical spa uses ultrasound energy to restore a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.  

What Is Sofwave? 

Sofwave is a handheld device that delivers ultrasound energy, precisely targeting a specific tissue depth. The heat generated by ultrasound energy triggers the body’s healing response, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The result is firmer skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines.  

Sofwave is cleared by the FDA to: 

  • Lift the eyebrows  
  • Firm and lift lax tissue on the neck and under the chin  
  • Improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles  

Most people see improvement after a single treatment, with results improving for several months as the skin produces new collagen.  

Who Is a Good Candidate for Sofwave?  

Most women and men who benefit from Sofwave treatments have mild to moderate skin laxity around the eyebrows, chin, jawline, neck, and décolletage. Sofwave is safe for all skin types. Plastic surgery is a more appropriate approach if your skin shows significant laxity. Sofwave is also a good choice for women and men who have already undergone cosmetic surgery and want to extend their results.

What Happens During a Sofwave Treatment? 

The treatment involves moving the Sofwave handpiece across the skin, delivering ultrasound energy to the deeper layers. To make your treatment more comfortable, you can request Pro-Nox™, which is also known as laughing gas. You’ll feel a warm sensation, but the Sofwave device cools the skin at the same time, and most patients experience minimal discomfort. A treatment typically takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the targeted area.

What Is Recovery Like After a Sofwave Treatment?  

Because it’s a nonsurgical procedure, Sofwave requires minimal to no downtime. Most patients resume their normal daily activities after leaving our office. Most patients don’t experience any bruising or skin discoloration after the treatment.   

Can You Combine Sofwave With Other Treatments? 

Sofwave works well as a stand-alone procedure, but we can combine it with anti-wrinkle treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler injections.
