When you hear the term ultrasound, you might think of medical scans. But did you know ultrasound energy is actually one of the most effective tools available for skin tightening? There are incredible benefits to ultrasound treatments like Sofwave, one of our most popular technologies at Reflections Center for Cosmetic Medicine. Here’s what to know about the benefits of ultrasound energy when it comes to skin rejuvenation and how our award-winning cosmetic physicians can help..
Sofwave is one of the best treatments available for patients who want facial rejuvenation without surgery. By stimulating new collagen in the dermis, the deeper layers of the skin, it can help fill in lines and folds as well as enhance the overall quality of the skin. This makes it a far better option for patients who have mild to moderate signs of aging than an invasive surgical procedure. In fact, with 1-2 years of lasting results, Sofwave can significantly delay the need for a facelift.

One pitfall of many skin tightening treatments, such as radiofrequency microneedling, is that they impact the surface of the skin, leading to a small amount of recovery. While skin resurfacing lasers are incredibly effective, it’s difficult to reach the deeper layers of the skin without disrupting the surface. Ultrasound technology is unique in that it can precisely target the deeper dermis while still passing through the epidermis, or outer layer, leaving it untouched.
One thing that drives many patients toward non-surgical treatments like Sofwave is the promise of more natural results. Sofwave works by stimulating and contracting the supportive collagen matrix under the skin, causing the skin to “shrink-wrap” back into its youthful position. This can be attractive to many patients, as opposed to surgical procedures that rely on the skill and experience of a plastic surgeon to recapture your younger visage. Additionally, many patients prefer the gradual emergence of results over time, rather than a sudden change that can come with surgery.
It’s hard to beat the natural lifting and tightening effects of Sofwave, especially when there’s no downtime required. That’s because Sofwave treats only the deeper layers of the skin, making your treatment virtually undetectable. Additionally, you can enjoy results with a single treatment (and maybe a touch-up treatment later on). Although many different procedures and technologies promise a “no downtime” experience, Sofwave is one of the few that truly delivers.
