The Revolutionary Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment in our London Clinic.

Self London is an expert-led clinic for dermatological treatments in London. We are proud to have Sofwave in our energy-based device portfolio, a cutting-edge non-invasive skin tightening procedure designed to rejuvenate your skin and restore its youthful glow. Sofwave is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for those seeking to combat signs of aging in a non-invasive manner.

Key Benefits of Sofwave

  • Non-Invasive: No incisions or needles are required, making the procedure comfortable and free from the risks associated with surgery.
  • Minimal Downtime: Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment, with no need for extended recovery periods.
  • Quick and Convenient: Each session typically takes around 30-45 minutes, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Sofwave stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in gradual, natural-looking improvements.
  • Versatile Treatment: Suitable for all skin types and tones, Sofwave can address a wide range of aging concerns.
  • Proven Efficacy: Clinical studies have demonstrated significant improvements in skin laxity and texture following Sofwave treatments.

Sofwave is an innovative skin rejuvenation technology that utilizes Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology (SUPERB™) to precisely target and treat the mid-dermal layer of the skin. This revolutionary procedure stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. Unlike other skin tightening treatments, Sofwave provides impressive results with minimal discomfort and no downtime, making it an ideal solution for busy individuals seeking an effective result without surgery or injectables.

Sofwave’s technology delivers ultrasound energy to the mid-dermal tissue, where it generates controlled thermal injury. This thermal effect stimulates the body’s natural healing response, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. As a result, the skin gradually tightens and lifts, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving tissue laxity. The procedure is performed using a specialized handpiece that glides over the skin, ensuring precise and even energy delivery.  

The number of treatments required varies depending on individual skin conditions and desired outcomes. Many patients achieve significant improvements after just one session, while others may benefit from additional treatments to achieve their optimal results. During your consultation, our expert-led team will assess your skin and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

During a Sofwave treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the target area to enhance comfort and ensure effective energy transmission. The handpiece is then used to deliver ultrasound energy to the skin, creating a warming sensation as the energy penetrates the dermal layers. Most patients find the procedure to be well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort. The entire process takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Sofwave is known for its safety profile, with most patients experiencing minimal side effects. Some common, mild side effects include redness, swelling, and slight tenderness in the treated area. These effects typically resolve within a few hours after the treatment. Our dermatologists will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

Patients often notice initial improvements within a few weeks following their Sofwave treatment, with continued enhancements over the next three to six months. As collagen production increases, the skin becomes firmer and smoother, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging. The longevity of results varies, but many patients enjoy the benefits of Sofwave for up to a year or more before needing maintenance treatments.

Sofwave is suitable for most individuals seeking non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation. However, it may not be appropriate for those with severe skin laxity or certain medical conditions. A consultation with our experienced dermatologists will determine if Sofwave is the right treatment for you. We will evaluate your skin type, medical history, and aesthetic goals to create a customised treatment plan.

Sofwave offers several advantages over other skin tightening treatments. Unlike some procedures that require multiple sessions and significant downtime, Sofwave provides noticeable results with minimal discomfort and recovery time. Additionally, its advanced ultrasound technology allows for precise energy delivery, ensuring consistent and effective treatment outcomes. Compared to surgical options, Sofwave is a safer and less invasive alternative with natural-looking results.

Yes, Sofwave can be combined with other aesthetic treatments to enhance your overall results. Many patients choose to pair Sofwave with treatments such as dermal fillers, Botox, polynucleotides, broadband light (BBL) or Halo laser to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. During your consultation, our dermatologists will discuss the best combination of treatments to achieve your desired outcomes and whether these are deemed necessary.

Preparing for a Sofwave treatment is straightforward. We recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure and discontinuing the use of any skin-irritating products or treatments a few days before your appointment. Our team will provide you with detailed pre-treatment instructions to ensure the best possible experience and results.

Following your Sofwave treatment, it is important to follow our post-treatment care instructions to optimize your results and minimize any potential side effects. These may include using a gentle cleanser and moisturiser, and applying sunscreen daily. Our team will provide you with a comprehensive aftercare plan tailored to your specific needs.

The longevity of Sofwave results varies from patient to patient, but many individuals enjoy the benefits for up to a year or more. Factors such as age, skin type, and lifestyle can influence the duration of results. To maintain results (as the chronological ageing process is ongoing), we recommend scheduling periodic maintenance treatments as advised by our dermatologists.
