Sofwave Liverpool… A new ultrasound treatment has recently made its way to the UK, generating a lot of excitement. You may have come across the name Sofwave on the aesthetics grapevine. This innovative ultrasound technology is gaining popularity among the top practitioners. Keep reading if you’re curious to know what the hype is about. Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building is an exclusive Sofwave Clinic in Liverpool and among the first in the UK to introduce this cutting-edge device.
Sofwave is a unique ultrasound technology that differs from high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building’s very own Sofwave™ expert Dr Sunnetha, explains it like this: Unlike other ultrasound technologies that concentrate energy to create a focal hotspot beneath the skin’s surface, Sofwave™ using its SUPERB™ Technology, works inside the skin. With each energy pulse, Sofwave creates seven parallel cylinders that extend straight down from the skin’s surface and connect 1.5mm below the skin. This formation generates collagen-remodelling heat along a line, treating a larger tissue area than other ultrasound devices. The energy delivered by Sofwave is approximately six times higher, resulting in more effective skin tightening.
Before the treatment, the client’s face is prepared with a topical anaesthetic cream and painkillers, ensuring a numb sensation. Each pulse lasts about five seconds, and any discomfort is minimal and lasts for only one or two seconds.
Sofwave™ with its SUPERB™ Technology is an FDA-cleared treatment that effectively addresses fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in various areas such as the brow, submental area (below the chin), and neck. Aesthetics of The Royal Liver Building’s in-clinic Sofwave expert recommends this treatment for individuals in their forties or fifties looking to enhance collagen levels, diminish signs of ageing, and rejuvenate their skin. What makes Sofwave even more appealing is that it requires only one treatment, eliminating the need for multiple clinic visits. The treatment provides an initial lift through its thermal response, with full results becoming visible after approximately three months and lasting up to a year.
