What is a facial aesthetics treatment?
Facial aesthetic procedures are advanced treatments with rejuvenating properties for enhancing your appearance and improving your self-image and pride. Today’s innovative facial aesthetic treatments and skincare combine both art and modern science, so that even small changes can provide dramatic facial improvements. These treatments can soften wrinkles, fill acne pockmarks, contour the face, and define certain facial features.
What are your facial aesthetic issues?
Do you have blemishes? Wrinkles? Sagging skin? A crooked nose? An unattractive scar? If you are unhappy with a specific facial feature, this negative feeling can affect your self-confidence and self-esteem.
When considering options for facial aesthetics, you should contact a medical professional for a consultation, as there are effective non-surgical and surgical procedures that can improve facial appearances.
What are the most popular procedures for surgical facial aesthetics?
In the U.S., board-certified doctors often perform these surgical facial plastic procedures:
Reshaping the nose
Reducing excess skin on upper and/or lower eyelids
Improving forehead wrinkles and droopy eyebrows
Tightening the skin on the face and neck
Removing excess fat under the chin or in the neck
Making certain facial features more defined
Reshaping the ears
Repairing defects with reconstructive surgery
What are traditional non-surgical types of facial aesthetics?
Non-surgical facial aesthetics can include everything from skincare to non-invasive procedures performed by qualified medical professionals.
What are some of the traditional non-surgical treatments?
Traditional non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments include:
(Botox) injections and collagen injections
Skin care and other products such as hyaluronic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, and retinoid products
Dermal fillers and fat transfer procedures
Chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion
Photodynamic rejuvenation and laser/light resurfacing treatments
Laser resurfacing and laser skin rejuvenation
Devices such as Sofwave to cause collagen remodelling
Of these traditional methods, what is the most popular treatment?
Botox injections are among the most popular cosmetic medical procedures. Botulinum toxin blocks the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle, which simply means Botox is a type of muscle relaxer.
Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract – and when that muscle stops contracting, the dynamic motion that causes wrinkles also stops. Consequently, the skin smooths out.
How has Sofwave™ revolutionized non-surgical facial aesthetics?
In 2020, Sofwave™ unveiled its next-generation ultrasound technology for treating wrinkles and lax skin. Sofwave™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) technology is now a preferred treatment for many doctors and their clients. The ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen and elastin fibers, improving facial and neck appearances.
How safe is Sofwave™ technology?
Physicians and patients worldwide appreciate the safety features of this Sofwave™ SUPERB™ advanced technology.
With these treatments, doctors require no needles, no incisions, and no anesthesia to safely restore your skin to a more youthful appearance.

The system’s Sofcool™ cooling mechanism provides safety through real-time skin temperature monitoring, protecting the uppermost skin layer from burning. Treated patients feel only minimal discomfort during the 45-minute procedure.
Has the U.S. FDA cleared these Sofwave™ treatments?
