Ultherapy versus Sofwave seiche

You have seen celebrities, or maybe even heard your friends, who have tried Ultherapy®, the US FDA-approved solution for lifting and tightening the skin. On the other hand, you may have also encountered or read about the latest treatment today, Sofwave™, that can also do the same! Did you know that as much as they are similar, they also have differences too? But now you may ask, is one better over the other? Let’s find out.

What is the difference between Ultherapy® and Sofwave™? While both are non-invasive treatments, both are US FDA-approved, and both use ultrasound technology, they have their differences in depth and application.

Depth comparison of ULTHERA X & SOFWAVE seiche

Ultherapy® is currently one of the most popular and proven non-invasive treatments since it was launched more than a decade ago in 2009. It uses micro-focused ultrasound technology that can diminish fine lines and wrinkles and lift the neck, chin, eyebrows and upper chest safely and effectively by going into deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Sofwave™, on the other hand, is the latest treatment that is also US FDA-approved. It utilitizes Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam technology (SUPERB™) to facilitate collagen production and improve lines and wrinkles while lifting and tightening the face, eyebrows and neck. With Sofwave™, it targets mid-level (1.5mm) of the skin compared to Ultherapy® that can go into deeper tissues (up to 4.5mm). Since collagen takes time to create, both results begin to appear from the 3rd month onwards, but some say that some Sofwave™ patients begin see results sooner. Moreover, Sofwave™ is also said to be more comfortable and poses no risk for fat atrophy, that reports say may possibly happen in Ultherapy® patients because of its ability to penetrate deeper.

Is one better than the other? Not really, since they address different skin problems. Ultherapy® is ideal for deeper wrinkles, folds and sagging skin, whereas Sofwave™ is great for thin and loose skin that sags, but it can treat fine lines and wrinkles too! This is why between them, the “better” option will always depend on your skin’s needs.

Can treatments be combined? Yes! Depending on your skin concerns, your dermatologist can definitely recommend using both treatments OR combining them with other skin procedures too so you can maximize your results! While neither Ultherapy® nor Sofwave™ are substitutes for a surgical lift, they are the next best thing when it comes to tightening and lifting skin. Thanks to Ultherapy® and Sofwave™, you can now say goodbye to sagging skin and wrinkles and get closer to your #skingoals without going under the knife!
