Sofwave™ Skin Tightening
One of the earliest signs of aging you may notice is skin that feels or looks less firm. You might see this around your eyebrows, beneath your chin, or in your neck area. This looseness in your skin may only become more pronounced as you get older. Sofwave is a game-changing skin-tightening treatment offered at our Houston medical spa that produces excellent results after only 1 session.
What Is Sofwave?
Sofwave tightens the skin by delivering ultrasound energy where it stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, the foundation of smooth, tight skin. It’s a safe, clinically proven procedure cleared by the FDA in 2019 to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. No downtime is needed following a treatment, which typically takes less than 45 minutes.
What’s the Difference Between Sofwave and Ultherapy®?
Both Ultherapy and Sofwave use ultrasound energy to tighten loose skin, but there are significant differences that make Sofwave the preferred option for most patients. One of the key differences is patient comfort during treatment. Ultherapy patients often report experiencing significant discomfort during a procedure.
Sofwave uses a technology called Intense Ultrasound Beam™ to generate heat at the precise depth in the skin, where it promotes the growth of new collagen and elastin. This focus on targeting the mid-dermal layer not only minimizes discomfort, but it also lowers the chance of experiencing certain side effects reported with Ultherapy ultrasound skin tightening.
Ultherapy delivers energy into the skin’s deeper layers, below the dermis and closer to the bone, which is why many patients describe the treatment as painful. This is especially true in more sensitive areas such as along the jaw.
Additionally, Sofwave also targets multiple points, covering a larger area at one time, while Ultherapy directs its energy to a single focal point.
Could Sofwave Help You?
You may be a good candidate for a Sofwave treatment if one of the following applies:
- You have mild-to-moderate skin laxity around the eyebrow line, chin, neck, or décolletage. This means your skin is just beginning to look and feel less firm.
- You don’t yet need a facelift, or you aren’t ready for surgery.
- You want to prolong the effects of an earlier plastic surgery procedure.
If you are in your 30s or older and fit one of the descriptions above, consider Sofwave to lift and tighten your skin.
How Much Does Sofwave Cost in Houston?
The cost of Sofwave depends on the area or areas you want to treat. We offer prices per area, or you can save by combining multiple areas in a single treatment (see table).

How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Patients often see initial results as early as 1 week following the treatment. The body’s collagen regeneration process, however, takes up to 12 weeks, so you can expect to see gradual improvements during the 3 months following your treatment session.
