Benefits of our Memphis Sofwave

SkinBody Memphis is the only practice in Memphis offering the FDA-cleared Sofwave technology, an innovative skin tightening treatment with no downtime and little to no pain.  (topical numbing cream applied)  Patients see visible results after only one treatment.
Sofwave is FDA cleared for:
  • Lifting the eyebrow
  • Lifting lax submental (beneath the chin) tissue
  • Lifting neck tissue
  • Improvement in facial lines and wrinkles

Sofwave uses proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam Technology™ (IUB), in which sound wave energy passes through the epidermis (the skin’s surface). 7 high-frequency ultrasound beams are delivered through the tissue to increase and regenerate collagen. This procedure tightens lax skin and improves the appearance of wrinkles.  According to clinical studies, 86% of subjects demonstrated improvement in wrinkle appearance.

SKIN LAXITY

While it’s not unusual to experience some degree of skin laxity as we age, many people start noticing the signs between ages 35 and 40. The loss that occurs during this period is due largely in part from decreased production levels for collagen fibers,

elastin fibers, and hyaluronic acid — a molecule that helps the skin retain moisture.

Significant or rapid weight loss, pregnancy can also loosen the skin.  Here are some other factors that can cause loose skin. 
  • menopause
  • sun exposure
  • tanning beds
  • certain medications, such as steroids and corticosteroids
  • smoking
  • drinking

HOW IS SOFWAVE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SKIN TIGHTENING DEVICES?

Sofwave’s proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam technology creates multiple 3D dimensional cylindrical shaped thermal zones within the mid-section (dermis) of skin, where collagen resides. The treatment results in a building and tightening effect that can help reduce fine lines or wrinkles for those looking to have their appearance enhanced without surgery!

In order to enhance your comfort and safety, the device will cool skin as it treats. This helps prevent heat damage from occurring at a cellular level which can lead towards follicle disruption or even scarring!

HOW DOES SOFWAVE WORK TO TIGHTEN THE SKIN?

The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and
wrinkles.

SOFWAVE SKIN TIGHTENING & WRINKLE REDUCTION

Sofwave  helps you look younger by restoring the collagen support that firms and tones skin thus improving the elasticity of your skin to help reduce wrinkles. Those repetitive movement wrinkles such as smiling, squinting and pursing one’s lips can be reduced by the use of Sofwave. This is because the breakdown of the collagen is directly under the skin as to the deep folds around the mouth and jowls are due to volume loss.  Sofwave helps remove wrinkles in a natural way.

 

SOFWAVE BROW LIFT & EYELID LIFT

Sofwave’s non-surgical treatments have been proven to produce great results for the brow and eyelid area. Very few non-surgical treatments are able create such consistent improvements.

Frequently Asked Questions For Sofwave

Sofwave is a next generation skin wrinkle treatment that is non-invasive with no down-time.  This ultrasound-based technology utilizes a high frequency, Intense Ultrasound Beam to induce collagen production within the skin.

Tighter and lifted appearance on areas that have started drooping or saggy (e g brows cheeks jaw line neck). Tone and youthful skin.  In clinical studies 88% of patients were marked improved/significantly improved in the appearance of wrinkles and necklines 12 weeks after a single treatment. 

Sofwave directs 7 high-frequency ultrasound beams through the skin to converge in a 3D grid at a depth of 1.5mm below the surface of the skin, creating a series of hot spots of targeted treatment. By not heating the surface of the skin, and not treating the entire tissue plane at 1.5 mm depth, Sofwave is able to produce great results without downtime.
Sofwave helps tighten skin and improve the appearance of fine lines on the chin, brow, cheeks and neck areas. This innovative, nonsurgical treatment can give patients tighter, firmer skin, and boost collagen production while requiring little to no downtime.
The safety profile is strong. The integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool™ protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.  No device-related adverse events were reported in the clinical study.

 Sofwave is well suited for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and neck. Someone in poor health, who smokes, or has excessive sun damage on their face is not a good candidate. Patients with more significant laxity will benefit more from a surgical procedure. If you are looking for a no downtime alternative for skin tightening of the face and neck, then Sofwave may be for you.  As always, it is highly recommended that you schedule an in-person consultation to determine which treatment will be best for you.
No specific preparation is required.
There is some discomfort associated with the procedure and varies from patient to patient.  Some areas may be more sensitive than others and it will depend on how much energy is needed to optimize results.  In order to reduce the discomfort in those area, we use a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure.  The cooling device at the tip of the ultrasound transducer helps reduce discomfort as well.  Most patients tolerate treatment well. 
There is no real downtime from Sofwave. No bruising and no pain. The majority of  patients have no visible signs of the procedure immediately after completion.  You do not need to take time off from work, social activities, workouts, or even red carpet appearances.
 
Some patients may experience a bit of transient redness in the treatment area which may last up to an hour. You can easily cover any redness with makeup right away, if you like.
Sofwave treatments are safe and the technology is FDA-cleared. According to Sofwave’s clinical studies, its safety profile was excellent and there were no adverse events reported. Sofwave has the ability to measure and control skin temperature and comes with a cooling mechanism that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. In other words, Sofwave accurately targets the thermal effect while providing optimal epidermal protection.
The majority of patients will only need one treatment, while others will benefit from an additional treatment. The number of treatments will depend on how much skin laxity you have and how you respond to the Sofwave treatment. Treatments can be repeated annually to maintain the results.
Sofwave treatment stimulates new collagen. The process of neocollagenesis takes about 3-6 months. Most patients will start to see some results around 4-6 weeks after treatment, but should continue to see additional improvement over the following several months.
