Sofwave™ in Bethesda, MD


What is Sofwave™?  Sofwave™ is an FDA cleared and clinically proven treatment to remodel collagen, which improves facial lines and wrinkles, and lifts the eyebrows, submental, and neck area.

Does Sofwave™ treatment work?  Yes!  Starting in our mid-20s, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing our skin to wrinkle and lose its elasticity. Sofwave™ is a clinically proven, non-invasive approach to remodeling collagen, which improves facial lines and wrinkles and a lifting effect to the eyebrows, neck, and submental region.  

What is a Sofwave™ treatment?  Using proprietary Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology, ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface (the epidermis), heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the precise depth and temperature to rejuvenate collagen fibers and improve the overall appearance of the skin. 

  • Is Sofwave™ effective? Most patients showed significant improvement after one treatment
  • FDA cleared to treat facial lines and wrinkles and lift the eyebrows, submental, and neck. 

Non-surgical – minimal downtime – 30-45-minute treatment.

How many Sofwave™ treatments will be required?

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. 

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, and lifting the eyebrow, submental and neck.

When will I see results from Sofwave™?

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. 

Can Sofwave™ help to get rid of cellulite?

In December 2022, Sofwave™ announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) clearance of Sofwave™ SUPERB™ technology to be used for short-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

Since 2021, Sofwave™ has also been FDA-cleared for reducing facial lines and wrinkles, lifting the eyebrow, and lifting lax skin of the submental and neck tissues.

What did Sofwave™ clinical trials show for improving cellulite?

In support of the cellulite FDA clearance, Sofwave™ conducted a multi-site clinical study that evaluated the safety and effectiveness of the device for the non-invasive dermatological aesthetic improvement in cellulite appearance. Sixty-eight women were treated in the U.S. Eligible patients received two treatments (two to four weeks apart) using SUPERB technology on one side (right or left) of the lateral/posterior upper thigh or buttocks.

Serial clinical photographs were assessed by blinded independent reviewers to identify pre-treatment images when compared to post-treatment images and to grade the pre-treatment and post-treatment images using the Cellulite Severity Scale. Improvement was also evaluated using the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale and the Laxity Scale. Post-study, the blinded reviewers correctly identified the post-treatment images for 89% of the subjects.
