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. 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.
"I went to Dr. Dorner for my breast augmentation. I am so happy I did! They look and feel amazing, he delivered exactly the look I wanted. I can’t believe I waited so long to get this procedure done. I would highly recommend Dr. Dorner l!"- T.C. / Google / Jan 10, 2021
"Dr. Dorner is an excellent physician. I have known him for several years and would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced, talented surgeon.

"I'm 71, Dr. Dorner is my third and the most talented plastic surgeon. At my consult, we discussed fat and skin around my neck. He knew immediately how to correct it and explained the process. During my necklift with liposuction, Dr. Dorner took additional steps to ensure better than expected results. He also performed laser skin resurfacing using more than one laser. The results are amazing. My fine lines are almost non-existent. Dr. Dorner's technical and artistic skills put him in a league of his own. -CD"- C.D / Office Visit / Aug 21, 2020
"I wish I could give more than five stars; AMAZING experience! I've struggled to build muscle/bulk in certain areas of my body my whole life and decided it was time to take action. For about 6 months, I researched options and plastic surgeons, mostly based in LA and NY. I luckily stumbled across Dr. Dorner in my search and I'm so glad I found him. The whole staff is very friendly, supportive, smart and very accommodating. Dr. Dorner made recommendations based on the results I was trying to achieve and I have to say, he knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery."- R.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

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.
What to Expect
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.
How long does it take to see results?
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.
How many treatments does it take?
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.
How long is a typical Sofwave Treatment?
The treatment itself is fast, taking approximately 30 - 40 minutes for the full face and neck region.
