Sofwave™ Treatments – The Perfect Addition to Your Summer Routine

As summer draws near, you want to ensure that your skin stays in perfect condition for as long as possible. However, UV rays increase your skin sensitivity, so there might be a few limitations in the treatments you can undergo safely. High-intensity laser treatments are something to be cautious of around this time. 

This makes the Sofwave™ treatment an excellent addition to your summer skincare routine. Whether you are tanned, not tanned, or have a skin color sensitive to the sun, this procedure is a perfect choice. In this blog, you will understand exactly how it could help you in the long run.

What Is Sofwave™?

The Sofwave™ treatment is a procedure that uses SUPERB (Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam) technology to deliver energy into the deeper layers of the skin. It’s a non-invasive procedure that does not break the skin, so you should not have any incisions to worry about.

The device’s ultrasound energy will generate heat within the skin, triggering its healing response. This starts a new collagen and elastin production, which improves skin elasticity and tightness, and it also reduces various signs of aging. You can use it on multiple areas, from your forehead and brows to your cheeks, jawline, and neck.

What Makes Sofwave™ an Excellent Summer Treatment?

Here are some factors that make this procedure an effective summertime option:

1. Less Sun Sensitivity

Unlike other lasers that can potentially increase your sensitivity to the sun using intense light, Sofwave™ uses ultrasound instead. This means there won’t be too much light to significantly increase your sun sensitivity. Avoiding sun exposure before or after the treatment is not particularly necessary to prevent hyperpigmentation. This makes it quite a practical option for the warmer days.

2. Cancels Out Sun Damage

UV rays have the potential to break down collagen while triggering the formation of excess melanin. Not only can this cause loose skin and wrinkles, but it could also lead to the appearance of age marks. Sofwave™ can maintain a healthy amount of collagen within the skin, preventing it from receiving more damage. This can keep you looking younger for longer, especially if you receive regular treatments and follow a good skincare routine. 

3. Minimally Invasive Treatment

Unlike many surgical or non-surgical procedures that involve a fair amount of downtime, Sofwave™ is minimally invasive. At most, you may notice some redness and skin sensitivity within the first two to three days of the procedure. That said, the potential recovery should not hinder your summer activities, and you should be up and about right after exiting the office. You will just have to wear sunblock and a wide-brimmed hat to offer extra protection.

4. Short Treatments

The duration of a Sofwave™ treatment is often around 30 to 45 minutes, give or take. Considering that summer is when you’ll want to spend as much time outdoors as possible, this can be very convenient for you. You can even opt for this treatment during lunchtime, returning to your daily routine right after your session.

5. Suitable for Every Skin Type

Sofwave™ is a type of treatment that can be used on every skin type, whether it’s dark or fair. As people with dark skin are often prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, this can make other laser treatments inconvenient during summer. Sofwave™ has a gentler action, so everyone can use it regardless of season and skin tone.
