Board Certified Dermatologists located in Columbia, MD

As we age, it can be challenging to maintain the healthy, youthful appearance of our skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin are some of the most common concerns that contribute to the visible signs of aging. If you are noticing these changes in your own skin, but are unwilling to undergo surgery, you need look no further than Medical & Aesthetic Dermatology in Columbia, Maryland. Thanks to the continuous advancements in the field of cosmetic dermatology, plastic surgery is no longer the only option available. Sofwave™ is one of the latest technologies to be offered by Dr. Cheryl Bansal as a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option for patients who are concerned with fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity affecting the face and neck.

Using the Sofwave Treatment for Wrinkles and Fine Lines

How does Sofwave™ work?

The Sofwave™ treatment uses a proprietary technology called Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while lifting and tightening skin. The treatment delivers ultrasound energy to the most collagen-rich layer of the skin, creating a controlled thermal injury and triggering your body’s natural healing response. The result of this process is the production of new collagen and elastin leading to a rejuvenated appearance without the need for surgery. Sofwave™ is a no-downtime procedure, so patients can return to their daily activities immediately, and with treatments typically lasting only 30-45 minutes, Sofwave™ can easily fit into the busiest of schedules. Patients can expect long lasting results in as little as a two treatments, while patients who want more dramatic improvements can have treatments done regularly.

What areas can Sofwave™ improve?

The Sofwave™ treatment is best used to treat wrinkles and skin laxity in areas such as:

  • Eyebrows
  • Jawline/Submentum
  • Neck

Who is a good candidate for Sofwave™ treatment?

The ideal Sofwave™ candidates are individuals who have mild to moderate skin laxity with visible fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave™ can also be used in younger patients as a preventative treatment, to maintain a youthful appearance, or in patients with moderate to severe skin aging wanting more dramatic results, however, multiple treatments may be recommended in this case. Sofwave™ is safe for all skin types and can be used any time of year to boost collagen production for a healthy glow and rejuvenated appearance!

Is the Sofwave™ treatment safe?

The safety and efficacy of Sofwave™ have been evaluated by the FDA and is approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, as well as, for lifting the eyebrows, jawline, and neck. Sofwave™ boasts a highly rated safety profile, mainly due to its integrated cooling technology called Sofcool™. The Sofcool™ system cools and protects the outer layer of skin from thermal damage, while allowing the ultrasound energy to penetrate to the precise skin depth as determined by your treatment provider for the most ideal treatment. More traditional light-based devices are prone to burning darker skin types, however, because Sofwave™ utilizes ultrasound energy rather than light, it is safe for all skin types and tones.
