What should you ask your aesthetic doctor before having Sofwave?
How much does Sofwave cost and other questions to ask your provider!
Considering Sofwave ultrasound facial treatments for your fine lines and wrinkles?
If so, you likely have a lot of questions to ask your Sofwave provider. These may include:
Am I a candidate for Sofwave?
The answer is likely yes as Sofwave is colorblind and is safe for all skin types. “If you have mild to moderate laxity, Sofwave is a great choice,” says San Diego Dermatologist, Arisa Ortiz. “If you have advanced laxity, but don’t want surgery, then you will still benefit.
Here’s the difference between these procedures.
How does Sofwave work?
Sofwave is a next-generation ultrasound device that delivers Intense Ultrasound Beam™ (IUB) technology to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore natural, smooth skin features. The ultrasound energy bypasses your skin’s upper layers and directly targets the dermis, where it stimulates your skin’s natural collagen and elastin supply. Collagen and elastin are two of the main structural proteins found in skin that are responsible for its supple and youthful properties. Our natural supply declines with age
Is it approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?
Who can provide Sofwave treatments?
Proper training, certification, and experience are required to assure a safe and effective Sofwave treatment. This will vary by state, and physicians may delegate the procedure to be performed by nurses, aestheticians or other staff under their direction.

Are the Sofwave treatments painful?
Pain is relative, but most people tolerate the treatment very well with just a little numbing cream. Sofwave is considred to be a comfortable procedure without the severe discomfort of other ultrasound skin treatments on the market.
How many Sofwave treatments will I need?
You will see noticeable results after one 30-45-minute treatment, but typically, two treatments are recommended to achieve maximum results. Your Sofwave provider will develop a plan to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
Is there any downtime after Sofwave treatment?
There is no downtime with Sofwave. “You can go right back to your normal life and activities following the treatment. Makeup and sunscreen can be worn immediately as the skin’s surface is not affected,” says Dr. Ortiz.
Can I also get fillers with Sofwave?
Each provider has his or her own protocol. However, dermal fillers like Restylane (Galderma) and Juvederm (Allergan) are considered safe to be injected for Sofwave patients. Learn more about how best to combine Sofwave and fillers here.
Is there a risk of burning with Sofwave?
Sofwave comprises an integrated cooling mechanism that protects the skin’s outermost layer. The technology enables treatment at the optimal depth while ensuring that there is no damage done to the underlying structures beneath the dermis, or skin’s outer layer.
Can Sofwave contour the lower face?
Because the procedure boosts production of collagen and elastin under your skin’s surface, it can improve the lower face. Sofwave is considered to be a non-surgical chin lift that can help to tighten and tone the chin and jawline.
How does Sofwave compare to thread lifts?
Thread lift treatment lifts sagging mid-facial skin, including the cheeks and deeper folds, using temporary sutures. Sofwave builds up the collagen and elastin supply under your skin. A thread lift is considered a minimally invasive procedure, rather than a noninvasive procedure such as Sofwave Ultrasound. Learn more about the differences between thread lifts and Sofwave now.
