In the quest for timeless beauty, there is a constant demand for innovative treatments that help turn back the clock and defy gravity. One such cutting-edge, non-surgical technology making waves is Sofwave. Sofwave is a treatment that uses parallel beam ultrasound technology to target several of the signs of skin aging. Naples, FL dermatologist Kathryn J. Russell, MD at The Woodruff Institute for Dermatology and Mohs Surgery, finds Sofwave to be a revolutionary option for patients who desire an effective solution for tightening and rejuvenation of the skin with modest pain and no downtime.   

Tailored for Timeless Beauty

According to Dr. Russell, Sofwave is a great treatment option for patients ranging from their 30s into their 70s or beyond who wish to rejuvenate their skin without resorting to invasive procedures. “As we age, the natural decline of collagen and elastin proteins in our skin leads to sagging and wrinkles,” explains Dr. Russell. “Sofwave works by heating the dermal layer of skin to promote collagen growth.”

Results are not instantaneous, but improvements can be seen in as little as a week. “Collagen regeneration can take up to 12 weeks”, Dr. Russell says, so patients can expect to see ongoing improvement for 3 months after a Sofwave treatment.  “70-80 percent of patients rated their results as improved to very much improved in clinical trials.” 

A Comfortable Process

Concerns about pain during a cosmetic treatment are natural, but Dr. Russell assures that the discomfort from Sofwave is modest at most and short-lived. “As Sofwave is performed, you feel some heat, but it is in short, quick bursts,” she explains. To enhance the overall experience, patients are offered topical numbing cream before treatment, and cooling devices are used during the procedure. “Afterwards, the skin can feel sensitive but looks normal.”

Dr. Russell advises, “Most treatment protocols recommend one to two treatments about three months apart.” This strategic approach ensures the gradual yet effective rejuvenation of the skin without imposing an overwhelming commitment on the patient.

A Natural-Looking Rejuvenation

Dr. Russell says Sofwave is a great anti-aging treatment even for those who’ve undergone surgery. “Even surgery is not permanent as people do not stop aging. Combating aging requires maintenance despite the treatments that are performed. Sofwave can be a nice, noninvasive procedure with minimal downtime to help maintain results.” 

This makes the treatment an excellent option for any patient concerned with anti-aging efforts, whether they have considered or had surgical interventions or not.  “It gives us a tool that can provide natural rejuvenation without making patients look like they had ‘work done’,” she explains. 

A Combination Approach

Dr. Russell says The Woodruff Institute offers a variety of treatments that can be done in combination with Sofwave. “They range from minimally invasive chemical peels and laser treatments to injectables and surgical procedures,” she says. “We try to match the needs and expectations of the patient to the right treatment regimen and procedures. Before any procedure, patients will have a consultation so that goals and expectations can be met.”
