Technology is the backbone of our society. Computers and high-tech equipment run almost everything that we interact with in our daily live. Not that long ago it would have been considered crazy to tell someone that they would be carrying around a computer in their pocket capable of answering any question they may have, at any moment. Teachers in school always preached the importance of math, because we wouldn’t be walking around with calculators all the time.
As technology continues to advance and enhance our everyday lives, it should come as no surprise that this same advancement of technology is also changing the way we look at plastic surgery.
Things that required surgical procedures in the past now can be done using less invasive, non-surgical, procedures with incredible results. And while non-surgical procedures will never replace surgical ones when it comes to certain things, the technology available now is doing wonders for people around the world.
One such piece of technology that excited about when it comes to treating fine lines and wrinkles is Sofwave.
What is Sofwave?
Sofwave uses a proprietary ultrasound technology known as SUPERB (Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam) to heat the mid-dermal tissue at the right depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibers and improve the appearance of the skin. In other words, it uses ultrasounds to tighten the collagen under the skin to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Sofwave is non-invasive, requires no-needles or injections, and is extremely safe and painless. You’re not injecting anything foreign into your body and you’re seeing similar results to those injectable fillers that you may have used in the past.
Why Use Sofwave Over Injectables or Laser Treatments?
You may be thinking to yourself, why would I use this new technology when I know the outcome of using injectables and fillers or even laser treatments? And that’s a great question.
With injectables and fillers you’re injecting a product into your face in order to help fill in the areas under your skin that are causing the wrinkles. While this process is relatively painless, you’re still being poked with a needle in order to get the desired results.
With laser treatments, you have to be careful depending on your skin type. Different skin colors or types of skin can react differently to the lasers, which can cause unwanted results if you’re not careful. With Sofwave you don’t have to worry about that, it is safe for all skin types.
Sofwave is extremely safe. It does not damage the skin itself and the penetrating ultrasound waves only target the mid-dermal areas in order to help rejuvenate and tighten up the skin that may be causing wrinkles. There is no down time when it comes to the procedure, and it’s extremely quick.
Most patients see results within 12 weeks of a single, 30-40 minute session. The procedure leaves no redness or irritation on the skin, so you can go right back to your normal routine as soon as you walk out of the doctor’s office.
Is Sofwave Right For You?
As with any surgical or non-surgical procedure you need to be the one to determine if it’s right for you. With Sofwave, it has been shown that patients in their mid-30’s to early 50’s usually show the best results after having 1-2 sessions of treatment.
This isn’t to say that younger or older patients can’t receive the treatment, but the results may vary. Everyone is different so you may not see the same results as someone else, but most people report great results when using Sofwave.
This is a great way to help tighten up that lose skin or help reduce wrinkles and fine lines without the need for surgery or needles. It’s quick, painless, and allows you to go about your day immediately after your session.
We are always excited about new technological advancements in the world of plastic surgery, whether it be surgical advancements or non-surgical advancements, and the Sofwave is just another great example of something that wasn’t possible just a short time ago but will change thousands of lives moving forward.
We can’t wait to see what the future of non-surgical enhancement brings.
