In Aesthetic Dermatology, the New Wave is Sofwave™

By Sofwave™

Sofwave™ Medical brings a new, non-invasive, minimal downtime approach to skin rejuvenation treatment that has revolutionised the field of aesthetics.

Sofwave™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) technology offers a next-generation procedure that promotes the growth of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin so patients can experience refreshed and smoother skin after just a single treatment session.

Non-invasive Sofwave procedures, which are safe to use on any skin type, are answering the growing demand for treatments that deliver noticeable skin rejuvenation.

Since its debut in 2020, this innovative concept has resulted in Sofwave technology becoming a preferred device in aesthetic practices worldwide.

The Sofwave SUPERB device emits a high-intensity, high-frequency, parallel ultrasound beam array through seven transducers that are in direct contact with the skin.

The system’s Sofcool™ mechanism provides cooling and real-time temperature monitoring for excellent epidermal protection.

These ultrasound beams simultaneously propagate the tissue and create a frictional heating effect at the precise depth of 1.5 mm in the mid-dermis and at the optimal temperature range for the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres – resulting in the subsequent remodelling of the collagen and elastin, and the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Dev Patel, medical director of Perfect Skin Solutions in the UK, comments on Sofwave’s ability to revitalise skin:

“Sofwave takes your skin back in time, and there is science behind it to back that up. You just slowly transform into a healthier version of yourself. After Sofwave treatments, our patients still look like themselves, but a fresher, more rejuvenated version. With Sofwave, you also have no fear of looking unnatural – unlike what can happen with some other treatments like dermal fillers.”

Confirming the science behind the process, Sofwave technology has earned four broad clearances from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for improving facial lines and wrinkles, as well as for improving the short-term appearance of cellulite – and also for lifting eyebrows, neck, and submental areas.

Additionally, in March, the FDA cleared the way for Sofwave to introduce its more compact “Precise” applicator, which delivers the same safe and effective SUPERB technology of the original larger-sized applicators, but with a more condensed transducer configuration for further precise and convenient delivery of pulses around small, curved areas, such as the eyes and mouth.

Sofwave CEO Louis Scafuri comments:

“Sofwave has established itself in 37 countries around the globe, received countless awards from the beauty industry, and has been recognised by many of the top key opinion leaders worldwide for its solid science and outstanding clinical results.

We continue to add functional yet transformational feature sets to the initial SUPERB platform’s design. The Precise SUPERB applicator will enable treatment of hard-to-reach anatomical sites with the ability to accurately target the area of treatment – and with a superior ergonomic design – while delivering the same safe, comfortable, and highly effective treatment.”

Sofwave accolades

Sofwave has indeed received numerous accolades, including:

  • In March 2023, the 13th Annual NewBeauty Awards recognised Sofwave as the winner in its “Best Non-Invasive Cellulite Treatment” category.
  • In 2022, Cosmopolitan magazine’s Holy Grail Beauty Awards honored Sofwave as “Best Game Changer” in its Winning Product category.
  • NewBeauty magazine also recognised Sofwave as “Best Latest in Ultrasound” in its April 2022 Beauty Awards.
  • SHAPE magazine’s 2022 Skin Awards named Sofwave a “winner to help achieve your healthiest complexion.”
  • ELLE magazine’s “2021 Future of Beauty Awards” named Sofwave as one of the best in its “In-Office Skin Treatment” category.

Before the Sofwave procedure begins, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the patient’s targeted skin to ensure their comfort while minimising what is, for most patients, a very tolerable level of discomfort as the ultrasound energy is delivered.

For professionals in aesthetic dermatology, the Sofwave system is simple and extremely intuitive to operate, making it possible to delegate the administration of the procedure to staff members following brief training. Procedures cover a wide area of skin and typically take only 30–45 minutes to complete. Afterwards, patients are able to immediately return to their daily activities with their skin fully refreshed.

Clinical studies have shown that this non-invasive procedure poses no risk for adverse effects or damage to the skin or body. Skin improvements were documented for the vast majority of patients.

All of this translates to a very positive return on investment (ROI) for aesthetic professionals who offer Sofwave treatments.

Sofwave system

Sofwave’s SUPERB technology continues to generate an industry-leading trove of clinical data demonstrating the efficacy, patient safety, and comfort of its device when compared to conventional invasive and non-invasive solutions.

As Dr. Gregory Mueller, a plastic surgeon whose practice is in Beverly Hills, California, attests:

“For a non-invasive treatment for anti-aging, Sofwave has really knocked it out of the park. Sofwave is very effective, and my patients love it. We can also use Sofwave procedures in combination with fillers, injections, and other technologies. The feedback on Sofwave is tremendous. We have several minimally invasive technologies in our office, and Sofwave is our No. 1 technology because the patients see the results. They also love it because there are no needles, no bruising, and no downtime.”

These days, even celebrities are going for a more natural look when making improvements to their facial skin. That’s why Sofwave ultrasound technology is taking the lead over dermal fillers, injectables, and other methods utilised in the beauty industry. Unlike these more traditional procedures, Sofwave treatments signal the body to increase its own production of collagen and elastin so that patients end up with a natural and more youthful result.
