Why get Sofwave™ at RejuvenationMD?
Sofwave™ is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production, add firmness, and smooth out wrinkles to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin.
Collagen is a natural protein in your body that maintains your skin’s volume, tone, and moisture by making up the framework that keeps your cells connected to each other. Elastin is the natural protein in your body that allows your skin to maintain elasticity. These vital proteins break down as you age starting in your mid-20s, which gives your skin a more aged look.
Although there are many treatments for treating wrinkles and skin laxity and stimulating collagen production, none have been quite like Sofwave. Its ability to quickly and effectively treat deeper layers of tissue while bypassing the uppermost layer of skin make for a special, cutting-edge treatment.
How does Sofwave work?
When Sofwave’s fractional ultrasound heat stimulates the healing response in your fibroblast cells, it boosts new collagen and elastin production. When your body produces new collagen and elastin, fine lines and wrinkles smooth out and your skin looks firmer, tighter, younger, and healthier.
Sofwave triggers your body’s healing response, known as neocollagenesis, stimulating new collagen by heating the tissue in the lower layers of your skin (mid-dermis). The ultrasound beam heats at a depth of 1.5mm under the skin to create controlled damage which jump-starts the healing of existing collagen and the production of new collagen.
How much does Sofwave cost?
At all three of our RejuvenationMD medical spa locations in Bothell, Burlington, and Bellingham, we offer Sofwave for $1,500 and up.
The cost of your Sofwave treatment will depend on how many treatments you need to get results. We recommend most of our patients here at RejuvenationMD get two initial treatment sessions for best results, but many notice improvements after just one session. When you consult with us for Sofwave treatment, we’ll develop a treatment plan tailored to you.
All new patients at RejuvenationMD receive a $200 credit toward any treatment, which can be used toward Sofwave.
When will I see the results of my Sofwave treatment?
Because it takes time for new collagen to grow once your fibroblast cells are stimulated to repair your tissues, it can take up to three months to see results. We usually include two sessions in the treatment plans we recommend for our patients, so best results are usually visible at the six month mark following the first treatment session.
How long do Sofwave results last?
We typically recommend a series of two treatments for initial results followed by one to two treatments a year to maintain them.
