Sofwave is the breakthrough ultrasound technology for face, neck, eyelid and brow lifting.
Sofwave is the latest FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. It is suitable for all patients who are affected by signs of ageing. Visible results can be achieved with just one treatment. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and can be performed all year round. It can be combined very well with injectable treatments such as fillers or toxin treatments.
How does Sofwave work?
Sofwave uses a unique synchronous ultrasound parallel beam technology that generates heat in the middle layer of skin, the optimal depth for wrinkle treatment, while bypassing and protecting the outer layer of skin. The emitted sound waves are converted into heat, triggering a healing reaction in the treatment zones. This replenishes the collagen in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and create a smoother, firmer complexion. Sofwave also has a built-in cooling mechanism that protects the outer layer of skin during treatment.
SOFWAVE™ treatment goals:
- Shortening of the connective tissue fibres (collagen shrinking)
- Non-invasive stimulation of the wound healing effect with thickening of dermis (subcutis) and epidermis (epidermis)
- increased production of collagen (collagen neogenesis)
- New formation/activation of fibroblasts (sustained collagen production)
- Improvement of the elasticity of the treated skin surface

How long does a typical treatment take?
A single Sofwave treatment takes 60-120 minutes depending on the zones being treated.
When will I see results?
Initial improvements may be visible as early as one week after treatment. However, the process of collagen regeneration can take up to 12 weeks. This means that patients can see continuous improvements in the period of 3 months after the treatment.
What kind of results can i achieve?
Due to Sofwave’s ability to stimulate the body’s production of collagen, the natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness, patients can achieve the following results:
- Firmer, lifted appearance, especially in areas that have sagged or drooped (e.g. eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, neck)
- Tighter and firmer skin with youthful resilience (more elasticity)
In clinical studies, 88% of patients experienced improvement or significant improvement in the appearance of facial wrinkles 12 weeks after a single Sofwave treatment.
How is the recovery?
Due to the Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology, which precisely penetrates the surface of the skin without damaging the outer layer of skin or underlying structures, and the device’s integrated cooling system, there is no downtime after a Sofwave treatment. Patients can therefore return to their normal activities immediately. They can also resume their daily facial care routine immediately after treatment.
How does Sofwave differentiate from other ultrasonic treatments like HIFU (e.g. Ultherapy (Ulthera®)?
Sofwave is the only device that uses synchronous ultrasound parallel beam technology to increase the collagen content of the skin. The therapy is less painful than HIFU devices thanks to the new technology and integrated cooling. Due to the treatment in the middle layer of the skin (1.5mm depth), there is no risk of nerve damage or fat tissue breakdown, unlike devices with higher penetration depths.
