Sofwave

Everyone goes through the aging process at different rates. Some people are lucky enough to avoid signs of aging through their thirties, while some less fortunate people start showing signs as early as 20.

And while there have been some options like surgery or other minimally invasive procedures that help reduce the signs that have developed throughout the face, there hasn’t been anything on the market like Sofwave.

So, for the first time, The Maas Clinic is excited to bring this new and cutting edge technology to the San Francisco community.

What Is Sofwave?

Sofwave is the next generation of noninvasive cosmetic procedures designed to revitalize skin and help combat signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and moderate skin laxity. Its proprietary Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB technology is the newest on the market and aims to address these aging issues by rebuilding collagen within the skin.

As we grow older, the natural creation of collagen in our bodies begins to rapidly decrease. It is estimated that after the age of 20, people lose collagen production at a rate of 1% every year. Multiply that loss by 10 or 15 years, and it should come as no surprise that you notice changes in your appearance by the time you are in your thirties.

To help remedy those changes, Sofwave uses ultrasound waves to deliver heat at a precise depth within the skin. This heat promotes your body’s healing process, including the flooding of collagen into the targeted area. This collagen stimulation then provides improved structural support and some volume to the site, combating any fine lines, wrinkles or skin sagging.

Sofwave also uses a technology called Sofcool, designed to protect the outer layer of skin from damage as the internal layers are treated. In other heat transfer procedures, it is common for the outer skin to deal with some damage due to the treatment. But by supplying the treated area with topical cooling, that damage is avoided.

Am I a Candidate for Sofwave?

If you are experiencing wrinkles, fine lines or skin laxity on any area of your face, then Sofwave could be a good option for you. There are no restrictions on skin type or complexion, and it can address virtually any area of the face, which makes this one of the most versatile options on the market. It is crucial that you have realistic expectations about the results that Sofwave can provide.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Maas and the rest of our expert medical staff will help you get an exact idea of what kind of results you should expect for your specific conditions and anatomy.

How Should I Prepare for Sofwave?

Sofwave is a noninvasive treatment, which means you do not have to worry about having any recovery or downtime after the procedure. There will be no long-lasting side effects or the need to adjust your usual routine in any way. You simply come in for your procedure and leave our office with a refreshed appearance.

While the process is relatively straightforward, we encourage our patients to keep a list of any questions or concerns you have so they can be addressed during the initial consultation. Ensuring that all of your points are answered will help you feel better about moving forward with your Sofwave procedure. We are committed to spending as much time as is necessary with you need to make sure you feel comfortable.

What Should I Expect from a Sofwave Procedure?

When it comes to treating fine lines and wrinkles, the entire Sofwave procedure takes a maximum of 45 minutes. This treatment was intentionally designed to prevent patients from having to plan days around their facial rejuvenation. Sofwave can even be done during your lunch hour, meaning you don’t even need to take an extended lunch to find the results you are looking for.

The procedure begins with a simple cleaning of the area that will be treated. Once it has been cleaned, the Sofwave medical device will be applied to your skin. This device delivers heat at exactly 1.5 mm deep into the dermis, which is the primary area responsible for keeping your skin smooth. Many patients describe the sensation from the Sofwave device as warmth or tingling.

What Should I Expect During Sofwave Recovery?

Here is some of the best news: you can expect minimal recovery, if any at all, from Sofwave ultrasound technology. The advanced Sofcool technology prevents the kinds of damage associated with other nonsurgical skin tightening treatments and drastically reduces the amount of redness or soreness that you will experience after the procedure is complete.

You still might have a little redness or irritation, but it is so minor that it is unlikely anyone other than you would notice.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Sofwave?

You can expect to see substantial and noticeable improvements in fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity throughout the treated areas in the face. These results will be long-lasting but will also require maintenance since your body will continue to lose collagen production at a steady rate. Most patients will need touch within a year, but your medical professional will work with you to determine the best treatment plan.

Can I Combine My Sofwave with Other Procedures?

Since Sofwave is nonsurgical, you can safely combine it with many other procedures you would like performed. Botox and Dysport are two common treatments that patients have alongside Sofwave since they can help bolster the amount of improvement made to particular areas with wrinkling, but many patients also go for other filler options like Juvederm or Restylane.

If you are interested in combining multiple procedures, make sure to bring it up during your consultation. Your medical professional can help you develop an effective treatment plan and suggest other procedures that can be performed alongside your Sofwave regimen.
