Starting in our mid-20s, collagen and elastin start to break down causing our skin to wrinkle. Sofwave is the latest ultrasound technology to help wrinkled and sagging skin in Columbus. The ultrasound energy is sent down to the skin’s layer where the most collagen is created, and it stimulates more production. There isn’t any downtime, and the treatment only takes about 45 minutes. The results are gradual, with the best results seen 6 months after the procedure. Typically one treatment is enough, but another treatment can be done 6 months after the initial procedure.
A good candidate for Sofwave is typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin aging. The potential patient should have some degree of fine lines and wrinkles.
Numbing cream is applied one hour before the treatment begins to properly prep the skin and make the procedure more comfortable—we also offer pro-nox to help relax if needed! The ultrasound energy gives off some heat so the tip of the Sofwave handle is cold to ensure the top layer of skin stays cool. After your treatment, you are able to go right back to your day as there is no downtime with Sofwave.
Immediate results can be seen as soon as 1 week following the treatment. However, the collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements in 3 months after their treatment.
With Sofwave, most patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from an additional treatment, depending on their body’s physiological response to the treatment.
The treatment itself is fast, taking approximately 30 – 40 minutes for the full face and neck region.
