Union Square Laser Dermatology is one of the first practices in New York offering the FDA-cleared Sofwave technology, an innovative skin tightening treatment with no downtime and minimal pain management (optional topical numbing). Patients see visible results after only one treatment.
Sofwave uses Proprietary Intense Ultrasound Beam Technology™ (IUB), in which sound wave energy passes through the epidermis (the skin’s surface). There are 7 high-frequency ultrasound beams that propagate through the tissue to increase and regenerate collagen! This procedure tightens lax skin and improves the appearance of wrinkles — 86% of study subjects demonstrated improvement in wrinkle appearance.
Sofwave is a more comfortable and low-downtime alternative to Ultherapy. We offer integrated cooling, which enables treatment at the optimal depth in the mid-dermis, while ensuring no damage to the epidermis or to the underlying structures beneath the dermis. Sofwave results strongly depend on physician technique, safety protocols, and proper treatment parameters, which is why our treatments are personally administered by one of our board-certified dermatologists, not by a nurse, medical assistant or technician.
