Ah, the relentless signs of aging. While skincare regimens focus mainly on facial wrinkles and fine lines, loose and sagging skin, and areas of unwanted fat, the neck is one of the first places that shows how the advancement of time is affecting our appearance. Unsightly neck skin, neckbands, and neck fat are major roadblocks to maintaining an attractive appearance. What if you could reverse these signs of aging with non-surgical procedures and non-invasive treatment to lift lax neck tissue and minimize all those wrinkles and areas of crepey skin? Well, now you can.

Sofwave Medical Ltd. (Sofwave™) is offering its Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) technology, which can dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles and lift the eyebrow, submental, and neck for all skin types – without surgery.

Experiencing an Innovative, Smart, and Safe Neck Lift

SUPERB™ ultrasound technology

It requires no needles, no incisions, no anesthesia, minimal downtime, and, best of all, no delay in looking fabulous! With just one quick and painless SUPERB™ Sofwave™ ultrasound treatment, you will be able to enjoy a more youthful appearance. This non-surgical procedure is designed to achieve ideal outcomes with minimal downtime through just one single treatment that lasts 30–45 minutes. This innovative treatment option is fast becoming the gold standard for plastic surgeons, who are recommending Sofwave™ treatments for patients searching for non-surgical procedures to achieve non-invasive lifts of the neck area, in addition to facial treatments.

Developing Non-Invasive Methods for Turning Back the Clock

To improve facial lines and wrinkles, Sofwave™ SUPERB™ technology revitalizes skin through ultrasound treatments that stimulate the new production of collagen – the protein responsible for the firmness and elasticity of healthy skin. As we age, our natural collagen production begins to slow, and, consequently, our skin becomes thinner and begins to sag with a crepey appearance. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the clinically proven Sofwave™ non-invasive approach to the promotion of collagen growth as an effective treatment for restoring skin’s lost volume and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles to improve face and neck appearances.

Developing Non-Invasive Methods for Turning Back the Clock

To minimize chin and jowl sagging, Sofwave™ offers non-invasive advantages over treatments that have been available from most surgeons for the past 20 years, such as BOTOX and hyaluronic acid (HA) injections. Sagging issues are caused by the platysma muscle, which is the sheet of neck muscle connecting the jaw to the collarbone. When we clench our jaws, this neck muscle pulls down the skin and soft tissue at the lower jaw area, eventually causing chin and jowl sagging.

While BOTOX injections or HA injections into the platysma muscle can prevent this pulling motion for a more relaxed chin/jowl appearance, these treatments can result in pain, irritation, or swelling at the injection sites. This new and proprietary SUPERB™ technology offers a game-changing, FDA-cleared, and non-invasive approach that rebuilds collagen, providing a more youthful face and neck appearance.

The non-invasive Sofwave™ SUPERB™ technology also offers a comparative advantage over deoxycholic acid injections, which have traditionally been another option for improving the profile of moderate to severe submental fat – the fatty tissue under the chin (also known as the “double chin”). To be effective, however, deoxycholic acid injections need to be given in a series of up to six treatment sessions. Additionally, patients might have to receive up to 50 injections at each session – resulting in possible pain, swelling, and discomfort at the injection sites. In contrast, Sofwave™ treatments are fast and painless, taking only 30–40 minutes to promote collagen growth in the face and neck.

The non-invasive Sofwave™ SUPERB™ technology

For the improvement of facial lines and wrinkles, Sofwave™ treatments also cause less discomfort than ablative and non-ablative laser treatments, intense pulsed light, radiofrequency (RF) energy, and high-intensity focused ultrasound. Each of these energies works in different ways to rejuvenate the skin and to reduce pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, redness, and other conditions.

To assist with neck lifts, deep ultrasound waves were introduced in 2009 for delivering energy into deep tissues. With this procedure, patients often feel a heating sensation and tingling below the dermis that can be difficult to tolerate, especially around more sensitive areas like the chin and jawline.

Radiofrequency microneedling procedures were also developed around this time as minimally invasive treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and sagging skin. RF microneedling technology involves heating the skin and puncturing the skin with needles to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and healing processes in order to achieve firmer and more rejuvenated skin.

more youthful face and neck appearance

In 2020, Sofwave™ unveiled its next-generation ultrasound technology for treating wrinkles and sagging skin while avoiding the need for surgical neck lifts. It is quickly becoming the gold standard for many doctors, as this ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface to heat the deeper layers of tissue at just the right temperature and location to remodel collagen fibers and improve the appearance of the face and neck.

To revive skin’s production of collagen, SUPERB™ technology uses high-intensity and focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin at the mid-dermis. This ultrasound energy causes tissue to heat up rapidly. Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain higher temperature, they are stimulated to produce more collagen – thereby providing a nonsurgical neck lift and returning skin to a younger, more wrinkle-free appearance.

Sofcool™ Cooling Mechanism

The SUPERB™ treatment’s Sofcool™ integrated cooling mechanism provides real-time skin temperature monitoring, thus protecting the uppermost skin layer from burning and ensuring the safety of this procedure. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called nucleogenesis, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

SUPERB™ technology enables treatment at the mid-dermis while ensuring that there is no damage to the epidermis or to the underlying structures beneath the dermis. This Sofwave™ breakthrough technology puts doctors and plastic surgeons at the forefront of innovation with smart, safe, and effective aesthetic nonsurgical procedures for their patients. Avoiding deeper layers of skin, these treatments promote new collagen and provide natural-looking results, which patients can achieve with minimal downtime.

Experiencing an Innovative, Smart, and Safe Procedure

Are you suffering from mild to moderate skin maturing? Do you hate your neck or your double chin, excess skin, skin laxity, sagging skin, or certain areas of fat? Do you want to avoid surgery?

If the answer is “yes” to any of these issues, then you are a good candidate for a nonsurgical Sofwave™ treatment to lift lax neck tissue or improve facial lines and wrinkles. The non-invasive SUPERB™ neck lift treatments offer a great alternative for adults who are not ready to undergo an invasive surgical neck lift that involves risks, general anesthesia, a painful recovery, and prohibitive costs.

Today, neck lift surgery is not the only option for combating signs of the aging process. Sofwave™ offers safe, effective, and non-invasive treatments for the face and neck that are ideal even for younger patients who exhibit early signs of aging. The FDA-cleared Sofwave™ SUPERB™ ultrasound treatment takes less than an hour to complete, allowing you to immediately return to your daily life.

These nonsurgical treatments take place in a physician’s office, where the compact SUPERB™ unit provides a high-intensity, high-frequency ultrasound beam array, which includes the parallel delivery of seven low-divergence ultrasound beams with low sensitivity to tissue inhomogeneity – thus ensuring repeatable and controllable energy deposition in the skin. These high-frequency ultrasound beams propagate through the tissue and create an array of seven unique geometric 3D cylindrical-shaped thermal zones in the dermis, separated by regions of undamaged tissue, creating a fractional effect in the mid-dermis region.

All of the system’s high-intensity transducers operate simultaneously. The fractional ultrasound effect creates a controlled, elongated, and directional thermal coagulation at a depth of 1.5 mm in the mid-dermis – achieving beneficial effects with minimal penetration, while ensuring no damage to the epidermis or to underlying nerves, bones, blood vessels, or face and neck tissue. The ultrasound energy is absorbed and cannot penetrate deeper than 2 mm, thus preventing injuries. The solid-state energizer module – which is robust and stable, with no moving parts and no optics – delivers consistent results. Pre-clinical trials demonstrated a clear tissue effect with optimal safety.

Treatment of aging skin or skin suffering from sun damage, especially in the neck area, requires that the thermal effect be localized in the mid-dermis. Sofwave™ technology’s high-frequency parallel beams, and the system’s integrated cooling mechanism, enable the thermal effect to remain localized between 0.5 mm and 2 mm within the dermis, with a center of treatment effect at a 1.5-mm depth.

The dermal tissue heating (60–70°C) induces collagen production and remodeling in the optimal vector direction relative to the skin wrinkles. The Sofcool™ integrated cooling mechanism protects the epidermis and assists in directing the effect in the mid-dermis.

The unique vector nature of Sofwave™ technology’s impact stimulates an inflammatory wound-healing response involving nucleogenesis and neoelastogenesis – all of which ultimately reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.

The Sofcool™ component ensures optimal epidermal protection and accurate targeting of the thermal effect, while also managing treatment comfort. The SUPERB™ ultrasound treatment is ideal for all skin types, as ultrasound absorption is determined by the microscopic and bulk mechanical properties of tissue and is independent of skin color or pigmentation.

Neck Skin Aging

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, patients may feel a warmness of the neck skin, which can be resolved by applying a topical anesthetic cream just before the treatment. Following this neck lift treatment, patients usually experience no sensations, and there is no need to apply any special care to the skin. Discomfort levels are usually very mild, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately. No post-treatment care is required.

Enjoying Revitalized Skin After a Single Treatment

After typically only one ultrasound session, most Sofwave™ patients report a high rate of satisfaction with their improved appearance. Sofwave™ technology is also designed to optimize patient convenience. It is possible to schedule a Sofwave™ session during your lunch hour, and then to return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment. There is no penetration of the skin with this treatment, so, unlike with surgical procedures, Sofwave™ patients can avoid discomfort, bruising, ulcerations, or skin pigmentation issues. This technology thus enables a true neck lift without surgery, pain, or downtime.

This energy-based Sofwave™ SUPERB™ technology is suitable for patients ages 22 and above. Sofwave™ reports high patient satisfaction, with most patients realizing clear improvements to their neck and facial appearance in as little as one single treatment.
