The Science Behind Sofwave™: How it Tightens Your Skin

Non-invasive skin-tightening treatments like Sofwave™ sound almost too good to be true. Visibly firmer skin? And boosted collagen? With no downtime? We can see why some might be sceptical. But when you delve deeper into the science of the treatment, you start to understand how it gives such impressive results – all of which are backed up by clinical trials and FDA approval.

So, for those who like to know exactly how their treatments work, this guide is for you. Here’s how Sofwave™ gives you younger-looking skin and smooths cellulite in just one session…

First, what is Sofwave™?

Let’s start with the basics. Sofwave™ is a non-invasive treatment that improves laxity and lift, so you can enjoy noticeably firmer, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. A strong alternative to surgery, the device harnesses SUPERB™ technology, which stands for Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam. Put simply, it’s a type of ultrasound energy that triggers tightening and toning deep within the skin.

So, how does the ultrasound energy work?

The Sofwave™ device is passed over your chosen treatment area, whether that’s the face, the jawline, the neck, or any other part of the body. As this happens, the ultrasound beam generates heat in the dermis – the middle layer of your skin – which reaches temperatures between 60 to 70 degrees celsius.

This high level of heat causes a controlled injury to trigger your skin’s healing process, so it springs into action to produce new, pore-plumping collagen. What is collagen, you ask? It’s the vital protein that’s responsible for the firmness of your skin, and because it depletes as you age, it needs a boost if you want to restore that tight, toned look. It takes time for collagen to rebuild, but when it does, skin appears smoother and more lifted; perfect for smoothing cellulite or treating sagging skin from head to toe.

Does it hurt?

A device that hot sounds like it should burn your skin – but Sofwave™ won’t. The heat is delivered directly to the dermis, while an integrated cooling mechanism protects the surface layer of skin. So, while the treatment is powerful enough to accelerate collagen production, you will experience little more than a warming sensation and a slight reddening of your skin.

What is Sofwave™ FDA-approved for?

Sofwave™ can be used for an immediate reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, with the FDA approving its use for a range of targeted areas. It’s been clinically proven to lift eyebrows, target the neck and submental (below neck) areas, firm skin on the upper arm, and even smooth cellulite.

What else should I know?

One of the other big benefits of Sofwave™ is that, because it uses ultrasound energy, there are no restrictions for those who have got a suntan. While many similar procedures advise you to stay out of the sun, Sofwave™ can be carried out on all skin tones and types. This means even in summer you can enjoy tighter skin.

What can I expect when I book Sofwave™?

At Mallucci, we offer the most bespoke approach to Sofwave™, kickstarting your treatment with a consultation and a VISIA Skin Analysis. It’s this analysis that helps you understand the starting point of your complexion, so you can go on to track the progress of your results, and get an in-depth review of skin’s improved firmness.

One to two sessions will be all you need to achieve your skin goals, with maintenance treatments carried out one to two times per year. As for results, some patients have seen changes in their skin after just one week, with optimal results visible at 12 weeks. There’s no better time to get started.

I’m ready to try it…
