We are proud to say that we are the leading skin tightening clinic in the country and as the first in Ireland to bring you Sofwave™, we also consider ourselves the leaders in this treatment.
Sofwave™ is a breakthrough technology in Ultrasound energy used to treat mild to moderate skin aging in a non-invasive manner. This unique treatment can tighten skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and significantly lift the brow and submental tissue.
In one treatment session, skin is refreshed, smoother and more youthful. Sofwave™’s breakthrough, non-invasive Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ answers the growing demand for treatments that deliver noticeable wrinkle reduction, lift the eyebrows and neck, and tighten the appearance of lax tissue in the submental neck regions.
Compared to similar technologies, Sofwave™ has been carefully designed to be more comfortable, faster and safer for clients. There is no downtime, and patients need not worry about muscle, nerves or fatty tissue injury.
With the application of numbing cream to the skin’s surface pre-treatment, we do our very best to ensure patients are comfortable during the procedure.
As a non-invasive treatment, you don’t have to worry about serious adverse events and can take advantage of accelerated collagen and elastin production – without undergoing an invasive procedure.
What is involved?
We ask that all of our patients arrive at the clinic 30-60 minutes before the treatment for numbing cream application to the areas being treated. As with any ultrasound treatment, there can be an amount of discomfort, which we will manage with each patient throughout the treatment.
Once in the treatment room, ultrasound gel is applied to clean skin. Depending on the areas being treated, you may expect the treatment to last anywhere from 30-45 minutes. There is no downtime following this session, and clients can return to their typical day-to-day activities immediately, applying makeup if necessary. Some clients are a little pink leaving, and often skin feels tighter directly post-Sofwave™ treatment. Results can expect to be seen anything between 3 and 12 months later.
Am I A Candidate?
Anyone in good health can have Sofwave™, particularly those looking for non-invasive skin tightening to lift heavy eyelids, sagging submental tissue, fine lines and wrinkles.
It is the perfect complementary treatment to injectables to improve problem areas and suits all skin types. Ultrasound technology can be used for those in their 20-30s as a preventative measure for signs of ageing, with most clients opting for Sofwave in their 40s and beyond.
For patients who prefer a one-off treatment, as opposed to weekly sessions of skin tightening, this is ideal, with many needing their subsequent maintenance treatment 18-24 months after their first.
Skin tone and sun exposure do not affect Sofwave; however, it is contraindicated for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
What results can I expect to see?
The unique treatment uses the latest technology to address skin issues often associated with ageing. Most patients notice that the procedure:
- Speeds up the collagen regeneration process
- Reduces wrinkles and marionette lines
- Tightens the skin around the jawline and on the face
- Plumper, more youthful skin
- Reduces jowls
How many treatments will I need?
Unlike most cosmetic procedures, Sofwave™ can help you to achieve optimal results in only one two sessions. People with greater concerns over sagging or lax skin might benefit more from two treatments, but your specialist will evaluate your skin during the pre-treatment consultation.
