Get Your Bounce Back

Glenview & Highland Park SofWave at Skin Deep Medical Spa

By our mid-twenties, collagen and elastin levels are already on the decline. In the past, those wishing to correct sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face and neck often had to resort to surgery to see actual results.

Fortunately, aesthetic technologies are constantly improving, offering non-invasive methods to improve your skin’s tightness and tone. SofWave is an ultrasound-based technology used to smooth, lift, and firm areas like the forehead, brow, midface, neck, and the submental area under the chin. Safe for every skin type, SofWave stimulates collagen in the dermis to give you a beautifully refreshed appearance. Read on to learn more, or schedule your Glenview or Highland SofWave appointment with one of our aesthetic specialists and get ready to enjoy the confidence boost from loving your skin!

SofWave Skin Remodeling

Tighten With SUPERB™ Technology

What is SofWave?

Imagine looking in the mirror and feeling good about your skin’s elasticity and firmness. SofWave is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation platform that uses a patented Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) to target the lower layer of the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which helps restore elasticity and smooth lines and wrinkles throughout the face and neck. Treatment sessions are quick, comfortable, and come with no downtime.

Ultrasound Action

Your SofWave Procedure

We care about matching you with the best treatments for your goals and skin type. Your visit to Skin Deep always begins with a consultation. Your provider will ask you about your goals and assess your skin type and specific areas of concern, ensuring that SofWave is a good fit.

Most SofWave sessions last about 30 to 45 minutes. A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. The SofWave applicator also has a built-in cooling device to provide maximum comfort as the ultrasound energy heats the lower layers of your skin. Next, a clear ultrasound gel is applied in the treatment area, and the SofWave device is gently placed against the skin in the targeted areas. You may experience mild warmth or tingling sensations as the ultrasound energy is delivered into the skin. However, discomfort is usually minimal, and most people tolerate the treatment well.

Seeing is Believing

SofWave Results

You may start seeing improvements in your skin’s texture and tone within one to two weeks of a SofWave session. It can take about twelve weeks or longer to see optimal results, as collagen production works to boost the dermal layer. Overall, skin tone and elasticity are improved, and sagging skin in areas like the neck, jawline, brows, and cheeks is tightened and subtly lifted. Patients tend to be very happy with the improvements they see in their skin after a SofWave session.

SofWave Recovery and Aftercare

SofWave comes with minimal aftercare requirements. Mild skin tenderness is standard in the first couple of days following the treatment. You must avoid excessive heat, sunlight, and strong topical products like Retin-A for about one week to protect the skin as it recovers and responds to ultrasound remodeling. Taking good care of your skin at home and leading a healthy lifestyle can help keep your skin glowing and firm after your treatment.

SofWaveFrequently Asked Questions

One of SofWave’s benefits is that it is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Ultrasound energy passes through the skin's surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the proper depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibers without damaging the skin’s outer layer.

Ideal candidates for SofWave treatments are individuals looking to improve the appearance and texture of their skin without invasive procedures, typically those with mild to moderate skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, or loss of elasticity.

SofWave treatments typically do not come with downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. There may be mild redness or swelling, but these side effects usually subside within one to two days.

In many cases, one SofWave treatment provides excellent results. For deeper lines or wrinkles, we may recommend additional treatments. Your aesthetic specialist will craft a treatment plan based on your goals and preferences.

This can vary from person to person. Most people will see some improvements within the first two to three weeks, but gradual improvements may continue for twelve weeks or longer as the skin responds to boosted collagen production.
