Sofwave Medical Ltd. has implemented an innovative approach to wrinkle reduction and lifting using proprietary breakthrough technology. Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam technology is FDA-cleared to improve facial lines and wrinkles, lifting the eyebrow, and lifting lax submental tissue (beneath the chin) and neck tissue providing physicians with smart yet simple, effective, and safe aesthetic solutions for their patients.

What is Sofwave?

Sofwave uses Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) technology to generate heat 1.5mm below the skin’s surface, in the dermal layer of skin, where collagen is created. The heat causes a targeted injury that triggers a very powerful boost of collagen production and tightens the existing collagen fibers, giving the skin a lift. The surface of the skin is unaffected, as are the fat and the nerves.

In addition to treating the fine lines and wrinkles on the face, Sofwave was recently FDA cleared to lift eyebrows, under the chin, and the neck. 80% of clinical trial patients saw improvement in 12 weeks.

Benefits of Sofwave

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Lifts eyebrows
  • Improves laxity of skin under the chin and on the neck
  • Results in 12 weeks and, anecdotally, within one week, as well
  • Quick, tolerable procedure
  • No downtime

Sofwave is excellent for someone who’s not a candidate for a facelift but everyone can use a collagen boost. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin, and it helps keep everything where we want it, but we lose about 1% of our collagen per year. Sofwave is a great way to restore that collagen.
The creation of new collagen and restructuring of existing collagen becomes noticeable around 12 weeks post-treatment. Although many patients have even quicker gratification.
Sofwave can also produce that sought-after snatched look. Sofwave gives a more chiseled jawline and more defined cheekbones without having to remove the fat from their faces that your going to want later.

How to Prepare for Sofwave

There’s no intense preparation for Sofwave. If you are prone to cold sores, you’ll want to pre-treat that day with valacyclovir to prevent an outbreak (this goes for pretty much any energy-based treatment). One more thing to remember: Some providers prefer not to inject neurotoxin or fillers 48 hours before or after Sofwave, so don’t expect to “get the works” that day.

What to Expect During Sofwave

We offer Pro-Nox (laughing gas) to take the edge off during the treatment. The Sofwave device is also equipped with a cooling plate that sits against the skin during the treatment to keep the skin’s surface from getting too hot. We also use a Zimmer cooling air device to help.
Ultrasound gel is applied to the face and or neck, which created a bond between the skin and the ultrasound transducer to conduct the energy. The heat comes on as a slow build: first nothing, then warmth, and just as you’re reaching the point where it’s going to be too much, you’re done. And then you move on to the next spot. For the last two seconds of each seven-second interval, it gets “spicy” or uncomfortable, but tolerable. The session takes about 30-60 minutes for the whole face and neck.

Sofwave is ideal for clients who want to safely and easily transform the look of their face and neck, reducing skin laxity and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The technology is appropriate for all skin types, including darker skin tones. The treatment can provide relief for those who wish to tighten the skin but aren’t quite yet ready for a surgical facelift. As with any cosmetic procedure, good candidates are mentally and physically healthy non-smokers who are expecting improvement rather than perfection.


Thanks to Sofwave’s Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology and built-in cooling system, patients do not have to undergo any downtime after their sessions. Sofwave is painless, and clients can return right away to their regular routines after treatment. Cosmetics can be applied right away, along with other beauty products. If you have any questions or concerns after your Sofwave procedure, do not hesitate to contact us. We’re here to support your experience long after you leave the office.


Most patients will see improvements within about 7 days. As collagen stores are gradually replenished, results will continue to evolve over time, with your full outcome visible at around the 3-month mark. The majority of people need one session per year, however if you have a heavier face or very loose skin, then 2 sessions (separated by 6-8 weeks) has been shown to be more effective.
