Sofwave Q&A

What is Sofwave™?

Sofwave is the latest technology to revitalize the skin through innovative stimulation of the production of new collagen. Ultrasound is a type of energy that comes from sound waves and is extremely gentle. It won’t damage or burn your skin, but it will go deep enough to stimulate the production of new collagen the protein that makes the skin firm.

During your treatments with Sofwave at Martha Viera Dermatology, you can expect to be in the office for 30-45 minutes per session. You’ll feel warmth on the skin as the device sends energy into your tissues, but you won’t feel any pain. Your provider offers you a topical numbing cream to prevent any discomfort.

Following the treatment, the collagen in your skin continues to grow for several months. However, you can start to see a difference after 3 months.

Which areas can I target with Sofwave?

Sofwave can target wrinkles and sagging in numerous areas, especially in the face and neck. The skin in these areas tends to wrinkle and lose collagen faster than other areas because they see more sunlight compared to other areas of your body, which stay covered.

Some of the most popular areas to target with Sofwave include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Neck
  • Chin and jaw
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth area

The treatment smooths wrinkles and helps lift regions of sagging skin and tissue, like jowls and the jaw. It typically only takes one session to get results, but your provider might recommend more than one session under certain circumstances.

Who can benefit from Sofwave?

To find out if you can benefit from Sofwave treatments, you should come in for a consultation at Martha Viera Dermatology and discuss your treatment goals. A major part of the aging process and one of the reasons why you get wrinkles is the loss of collagen over time. This process accelerates for women as estrogen decreases, which makes the skin thinner and drier. 

If you’re in your 30s or older and have mild to moderate signs of skin aging, your providers at Martha Viera Dermatology may recommend Sofwave as treatment. You’ll need to have at least a few prominent wrinkles and fine lines to notice a difference from your Sofwave procedure.
