Sofwave is an ultrasound device that delivers patented technology known as Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB) into the skin through the stimulation of new collagen. Sofwave is FDA-approved for lifting submental and neck tightening and fine line correction as well as tightening the lateral forehead to lift the eyebrow, reducing fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful appearance.
The Sofwave™ beams penetrate the tissue creating a fractional heating effect at the optimal depth of 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. We do recommend avoiding treatment over areas with dermal filler for 2 weeks.
An ideal Sofwave candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles on the lower face and neck area. A typical Sofwave patient is not ready for surgical intervention. Low-lying brows with skin laxity superior to the brow on the lateral forehead would also be a great candidate for Sofwave’s ultrasound tightening technology to lift brows.
Collagen is naturally occurring in the dermis and is responsible for keeping the skin firm and youthful. After our late teens and early twenties, we break down collagen, on average 1% annually which results in laxity of the skin and crepiness. Sofwave’s™ Synchronous
Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ technology produces heat delivering at a depth in the dermis to promote new collagen.
The For Your Best Self Sofwave treatment is done in one treatment. Rarely, a second time 4 to 6 months may be performed after the initial treatment for optimal collagen stimulation and fine line reduction. Be sure to communicate your aesthetic skin goals with your expert Sofwave provider to ensure your maximal results are achieved!
Sofwave is safe and no adverse events or reactions occurred in the clinical studies. Sofwave has a cooling mechanism known as the Sofcool™ that helps to protect the outer layer of the skin or the epidermis from burning.
The ultrasound technology delivered into the skin feels like a warm or “spicy” sensation that is short-lived with no downtime or recovery post-treatment. Patients will topically numb the area with our compounded magical numbing cream for optimal comfort! Patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately post-treatment.
Sofwave is a great alternative for those that are not ready for surgical intervention or lengthy downtime. Sofwave does not replace the need for surgery and will not deliver the same level of dramatic lifting as plastic surgery.
Sofwave results are not immediate, some patients report seeing results as early as 1 to 2 weeks post-Sofwave treatment. The collagen stimulation process is gradual and can typically take up to 3 months for full stimulation and results.

Dr. Novo not only heals the outside but also heals the inner you!!
Dr. Novo is phenomenal. Her staff is super friendly! I am very happy with the surgical procedure I had done, and would definitely recommend her.
I have been to several Dermatology practices through the years, some in Florida, some in the Northeast. I started using For Your Best Self when they opened in Suntree. I use them for all my fillers, skin care products, skin cancer checks and facials. The physicians and all the staff are very caring and skilled. The hydro facial is wonderful. I highly recommend them. They will make you look and feel you best!
