Signs of aging in women often begin to show in the neck. Despite best efforts to keep this gentle skin hydrated and free from signs of aging, some may find it necessary to seek out cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of sagging skin and fine lines. Cosmetic procedures requiring plenty of preparation and downtime can be especially daunting for patients looking to make minimal changes in their appearance, however, as technology continues to progress, more non-invasive options are becoming available.

In the case of a neck lift, Sofwave is a wonderful option to consider since it is non-invasive and requires no downtime following the procedure. Haute Beauty's expert on all things skin, Dr. Amy B Lewis breaks down the benefits of the Sofwave treatment below.

What is Sofwave?

Using Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB technology, Sofwave helps tighten the skin to minimize fine lines and wrinkles by rebuilding the collagen all in a treatment that takes about 30-45 minutes. Pricing varies depending on the patient’s needs and the area to be treated. While the treatment requires minimal planning and no downtime, some upkeep is involved. To maintain optimal results, it is recommended to repeat the treatment once a year to keep the collagen production revved up. However, the results of each treatment do not "fade away" like Botox or filler. You put yourself back in time and age from that point on.

In preparation, a topical anesthetic is applied to help make the procedure as painless as possible. Although Sofwave is very tolerable, patients can expect to feel a bit of heat on the skin generated by the ultrasound technology. A topical cooling system is built into the handpiece and can be adjusted in strength to minimize the heat sensation.

The non-invasive nature of the Sofwave treatment ensures that you should not expect any bruising or swelling. Instead, the treated area will likely be slightly pink for about 10 minutes following treatment. Similar to other cosmetic procedures, complete results aren’t immediately visible. Although some change to the skin may be visible that day, the results should be apparent 3 to 6 months later as new collagen is produced leading to tightened skin and a lifting effect.

Sofwave is FDA approved as a non- surgical brow lift, jawline and neck lift. For more information on expectations and how to achieve your preferred results, schedule a consultation with a professional.
