Many options are available today to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. Sofwave and Thermage are among the most popular non-invasive skin tightening devices available. Both are effective at resolving loose skin and fine lines, but which option can provide you with the best results?
Discover how Thermage and Sofwave work, their key differences, and which option has continuously provided more noticeable results.
How Does Thermage Work?
Thermage is a treatment option that uses radiofrequency technology to reverse signs of aging by addressing fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used on both the face and body.
During your treatment with Thermage, radiofrequency technology delivers heat deep into the skin where collagen is rich. Heat stimulates the skin and promotes the regeneration of broken-down collagen. The regeneration of these once broken-down collagen proteins results in skin tightening. Meanwhile, the tip of the tool vibrates and cools the skin’s surface to keep you comfortable and keep inflammation to a minimum.
How Does Sofwave Differ?
Sofwave is also a non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA for treating fine lines and signs of aging.
Sofwave differs because it uses the innovative SUPERB Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology instead of radiofrequency. Using this fractional heating effect created by the ultrasound delivery, it targets the mid-dermis, where collagen is produced. Damaging the collagen stimulates the body’s healing response, which causes it to create new collagen. With this new collagen production comes tighter, more youthful-looking skin.
Furthermore, the treatment only takes 30 to 45 minutes, whereas treatment with Thermage can last up to 60 minutes. Thermage also requires a few treatments to achieve the patient’s optimal results, unlike Sofwave, which can last up to one year.
There’s also no downtime required with Sofwave, a huge plus for patients with busy schedules looking to fit in a quick treatment.
