Sofwave™ Skin Tightening & Wrinkle Reduction in NYC
Sofwave™ is the next generation wrinkle reduction in NYC; the non-invasive face lifting treatment which is clinically proven to rebuild collagen to reduce facial lines and wrinkles.
In this video Dr. Shelton is treating one of his patients with the Sofwave™ treatment for wrinkle reduction:
Sofwave™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology (SUPERB™) now has the clearance by the FDA to lift the lax skin in the submental and neck area as well as to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
What weakens collagen and elastin in your body?
Collagen works in conjunction with elastin like a connective tissue to keep the skin supple and flexible. However, collagen and elastin start to break down from as early as our mid-20’s. Then skin begins to sag and start to wrinkle prematurely losing its strength and flexibility.
How do you restore collagen and elastin with Sofwave™?
The treatment delivers ultrasound parallel beam technology which passes energy through the skin’s surface heating the mid-dermal tissue at the right depth and temperature. This process rejuvenates the collagen fibers and improves the overall appearance. The technology is designed in such a way to maximize patient’s convenience and minimize downtime.
Is Sofwave™ treatment painful?
Patients may feel a warm sensation on the skin when the ultrasound energy is delivered. Dr. Shelton cares about the comfort of his patients and usually administers pain medication and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to make the treatment more tolerable.
Results after a Sofwave™ treatment
Patients may notice an improvement in the overall appearance and a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines after just one treatment. However, they are expected to get maintenance treatments once every few years.
Are you a good candidate for Sofwave™?
Dr. Shelton recommends Sofwave™ for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles to some degree on the face and neck.
