Services ( View All )

Dr. Pentel at Dermatology Southeast is excited to offer Sofwave! Sofwave is a clinically proven, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen. Sofwave is FDA cleared for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave uses a unique delivery form of ultrasound waves, enabling a fast and safe treatment for all skin colors and can be done on the face.

As you age, collagen and elastin production begin to decline, causing the skin to develop laxity, or become loose. Sofwave is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation that can stimulate the production of collagen.

Sofwave in Jacksonville, FL can treat mild laxity of the face, neck, and other parts of the body.

The treatment may be safe and effective for all skin types, as opposed to laser and light-based therapies that may cause burns on those with darker skin.

Sofwave uses a unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Array technology that generates heat 1.5 mm in the mid-dermis, which is the optimal depth for wrinkle treatment, while the outer layer of skin is bypassed and protected. The emitted sound waves are converted to heat, causing the treatment zones to stimulate a healing response. As a result, collagen in the skin will be replenished, which may reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as create a smoother and tighter skin complexion. Sofwave also comes with an integrated cooling mechanism that protects the outer layer of the skin during treatment, preventing it from burning.

Results may be seen as soon as one week following treatment. The collagen regeneration process, however, can take up to 12 weeks to produce visible results. This means patients may consistently see improvements during the 3-month period after the treatment.
