Does Sofwave work around the eyes?
Rejuvenating drooping eyelids and under-eye bags with Sofwave
Due to the constant movement of the muscles and approximately 10,000 blinks daily, the eye contour is susceptible to signs of ageing. The delicate skin around the eyes is prone to various changes, including wrinkles, sagging, and loss of elasticity. Traditional surgical procedures were once the primary option for rejuvenating the eye area, but with advancements in aesthetic technology, non-surgical solutions like Sofwave have emerged as game-changers. Read on to understand the changes that occur around the eyes with age and how Sofwave offers a non-invasive approach to improving these concerns.
Understanding ageing eyes
The eyes undergo many transformations as we age. These changes are influenced by various factors, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors. Some of the common age-related issues that affect the eye area include:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Over time, the skin around the eyes loses collagen and elastin, resulting in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Factors such as sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions, and reduced skin elasticity contribute to the development of these visible signs of ageing.
- Sagging Eyelids and Brow: As the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, the eyelids and brow can start to sag, leading to a tired or aged appearance. This drooping effect may also affect vision in severe cases.
- Loss of Volume: The loss of subcutaneous fat and the weakening of underlying support structures can cause hollowness or sunken areas around the eyes. This can give a tired and hollow appearance, often referred to as tear troughs.
What is Sofwave and how does it work?
Sofwave represents a remarkable breakthrough in ultrasound technology. It has received FDA clearance for its ability to improve fine lines and wrinkles, as well as for lifting the eyebrow, sagging jawline, and neck tissue. What sets Sofwave apart is its non-invasive nature, ensuring minimal discomfort and downtime for patients. It works by stimulating the production of fresh collagen and elastin by utilising the remarkable combination of SUPERB plus Sofcool, which protects the skin and reduces recovery time.
Studies show that the device lifts the eyelids by up to five millimetres, and even jowly jawlines emerge more chiselled, so it’s perfect if you’re starting to notice increased laxity in the lower face. The secret lies in Sofwave’s intelligent delivery system, incorporating patented parallel beam technology. By precisely targeting the mid-dermis at a depth of 1.5 millimeters, Sofwave activates collagen production, leading to the desired lifting effect. Notably, unlike competing devices that may affect muscle or cause fat loss, Sofwave poses no risk to these tissues.
Can Sofwave improve the appearance of ageing eyes
The benefits of Sofwave in the eye region are endless. As well as giving a nice lift to the brow and subtly reducing a drooping eyelid, Sofwave can also improve crepey skin around the eyes, target lines under the eyes (which are hard to target with other methods), and smooth crow’s feet lines. The collagen regeneration process can take up to 12 weeks. Results can be seen as soon as one week after treatment, with improvements continuing for up to three months after treatment.
