Sofwave™ in Pittsburgh
Newest Generation Skin Tightening
Sofwave is a revolutionary, FDA-approved technology that improves facial lines and reduces wrinkles with minimal downtime. It is a skin-tightening device that utilizes proprietary synchronized parallel ultrasound beam technology to address moderate signs of aging, including skin laxity, and provides a refreshed, lifted appearance.
As we get older, collagen and elastin begin to break down, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. Sofwave’s unique delivery system of ultrasound energy smoothes wrinkles and revitalizes the skin. It can be used on the face, neck and many areas of the body, including décolleté, arms and hands.
With over 20 years experience helping patients look and feel younger, Dr. Roxana Barad is renowned for her expertise in treating aging skin and imperfect complexions. She offers Sofwave in Pittsburgh to help people achieve the natural appearance they desire.
How Does Sofwave Work?
Sofwave is the latest generation of non-invasive treatments that rejuvenates the skin and minimizes signs of aging with no downtime. The proprietary delivery of synchronous parallel ultrasound waves deliver targeted heat precisely where it is needed to induce optimal collagen production. Within 1 - 3 weeks following treatment, signs of new collagen production begin to be seen, providing structural support to the skin and gradual skin tightening that continues to improve over the next 6 months. This gradual collagen creation smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, and improves sagging.

What is Sofwave Used For?
By targeting the middle layer of the skin where collagen should be most abundant, Sofwave works to restore collagen, which helps with:
- Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
- Firming and toning the skin
- Lifting and tightening lax areas (effective for brows, jawline, and neck)
How are Sofwave treatments done?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to enhance comfort in preparation for the treatment. Patients feel warmness on the skin as the treatment is delivered. The Sofwave device provides optimal epidermal (skin surface) protection as it is equipped with a cooling mechanism to protect the top layer of skin.
Following treatment, no special care of the treated area is required, and patients can resume their normal activities. Mild swelling and redness may occur, but are minimal and typically resolve within 24 hours.
Most people benefit from initially doing 2 treatments at 6 - 8 week intervals, and maintenance no sooner than 6 months later.
Are there any risks with Sofwave?
Sofwave has an excellent safety record with no adverse events reported in clinical studies.
