Sofwave Banner

WHAT IS SOFWAVE?

Sofwave is an FDA cleared aesthetic treatment using ultrasound technology for skin tightening as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. No downtime, no swelling, and a built-in mechanism to cool skin as it is being treated, resulting in elevated comfort!

Casas Aesthetics Plastic Surgery is one of the first practices in Northshore of Chicago area to offer Sofwave. Sofwave is the FDA cleared, non-invasive procedure used to lift and tighten skin on the face, eyebrow, neck, jawline, and body with no downtime. Sofwave uses a Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB) technology with 7 high frequency beams to deliver energy at a 1.5mm mid-dermis depth while protecting the underlying structures. A cooling mechanism is used to increase comfort and provide optimal epidermal protection.

REASONS WHY DR. CASAS, A FEMALE BOARD CERTIFED PLASTIC SURGEON, LOVES SOFWAVE FOR SKIN TIGHTING AND REDUCTION OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

  1. Sofwave is the newest generation of facial treatment.
  2. Innovative stimulation of new collagen.
  3. Sofwave has a cooling mechanism for optimal skin protection and increased comfort.
  4. Non-invasive and no downtime.

HOW DOES IT WORK

Pre-clinical trials showed a clear tissue effect with no damage to any facial structures. Sofwave uses a high intensity, high frequency, ultrasound beam array that specifically targets energy to the tissue at a 1.5mm depth while stimulating an inflammatory response involving neocollagensis and neoelastogenesis. Sofwave technology specifically targets the depth where collagen is the most abundant. The dermal tissue heating induces collagen production and remodeling. This combination results in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tightening of the skin.

Sofwave Treatment
 

SOFWAVE BROW LIFT & EYELID LIFT
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to treat drooping or hooding of the eye (skin laxity). Sofwave has shown to work by lifting the eyebrow and forehead.

SOFWAVE MIDFACE LIFT
An innovative approach to slightly lift and tighten the upper cheeks and midface. Sofwave is also used to rejuvenate the lower eyelid.

SOFWAVE JAWLINE LIFT
Sofwave firms and tightens the jawline area as well as the jowls (chin area) thus creating a natural contouring effect and a stronger jawline.

SOFWAVE NECK LIFT
Sofwave lifts and tightens the sagging skin on the neck and submental area to give a slimmer look. Sofwave has been shown to improve the appearance of loose neck skin.

WHAT TO EXPECT

After a thorough consultation, a treatment plan is established. The procedure takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes depending on areas being treated. Ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted area with an integrated cooling mechanism to protect the epidermis and increase comfort. There is no downtime following the procedure. Patients start seeing results within 4-6 weeks. Results may take up to three months as your body continues to build collagen.

AM I GOOD CANDIDATE?

Sofwave is ideal for mild to moderate skin laxity in the face and neck. Patients with significant skin laxity will likely benefit from a surgical procedure. Schedule a consultation for a thorough skin analysis and treatment plan.
