Sofwave vs. Emface: What's the Difference?

Are you looking for the best aesthetic treatment to diminish lines and lift skin? Sofwave vs. Emface–here’s how to choose the best solution for your aesthetic needs.

Do you want to lift sagging skin, but the thought of going under the knife terrifies you? We have good news! A wide range of cutting-edge, non-invasive treatments are available on the market that can enhance your natural beauty and revitalize your skin. Two popular treatments—Sofwave and Emface—have emerged and claim to lift skin and combat wrinkles. But Sofwave vs. Emface–which one is better? And which one do you actually see results from? Let’s find out.

Emface is a newly launched needle-free treatment that claims to deliver skin-tightening benefits. Together, with radiofrequency and electromagnetic stimulation, the treatment claims to lift and contour your face without the need for injections. But these claims appear more to be a fad or a marketing gimmick, unfortunately.

Sofwave, on the other hand, is a better option because it delivers more effective results. It lifts the eyebrows, submental area, neck and reduces fine lines and wrinkles in one single session and works on all skin types and tones.  At Biolite, we are dedicated to offering our clients the best possible care, and Sofwave's exceptional abilities are a perfect fit with our ethos because it gives results that work.

What is Sofwave?

Sofwave is a ground-breaking device that stimulates collagen production in the skin using a patented Intense Ultrasound Beam (IUB) technique. The minimally-invasive process is becoming increasingly popular as a safe and effective alternative to invasive procedures like traditional surgical facelifts. This innovative device is specifically designed to target delicate and sensitive areas like the face, neck and chest that may be challenging to treat with other minimally-invasive techniques. Sofwave delivers precise and controlled bursts of ultrasonic radiation to the intended location using IUB technology. This skin-lifting procedure is quite similar to Ultherapy. However, the depth is less (1.5mm as opposed to 4.5mm), which means it focuses on skin-lifting specifically on the neck, submental area and brows without damaging the desirable fat in the face.

The device emits ultrasonic waves at a frequency of 3 MHz, which is ideal for penetration of the skin to the necessary depth without damaging nearby tissue. This treatment has received complete FDA approval for lifting the brows, submental (under the chin) and neck, as well as for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Softwave heats the tissues to 60 to 70 degrees Celsius. The collagen is thus damaged or denatured, encouraging the fibroblast cells to produce new collagen and elastin. The average treatment session lasts less than an hour, and the majority of patients report no pain or recovery time. The results are typically visible within a few weeks, with continued improvement over time as the body's natural healing process takes effect.

What are the benefits of Sofwave?

Here's why we recommend Sofwave over Emface:

Cutting-edge technology

Sofwave's advanced technology, coupled with our team of skilled experts, has made it the cornerstone of our successful treatments. This non-invasive procedure uses the ground-breaking Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPBTM) technology to boost collagen production, resulting in noticeable skin tightening, an overall reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a revitalized complexion.

Minimal Downtime, Maximum Comfort

Sofwave has an edge over Emface in terms of low downtime and discomfort. Although both procedures are non-invasive, Sofwave's cutting-edge technology provides faster recovery and more comfort. Additionally, the procedure can be completed within an hour, making it an excellent option for those with busy schedules.

Customized treatment plan

The cutting-edge technology of Sofwave can be used to address various problem areas like  the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, chin and neck. It gives our experts the freedom to customise treatments to meet each client's unique needs, assuring the best outcomes for each patient.

Why is Emface not a good option?

Even though Sofwave is an innovative breakthrough in non-invasive facial rejuvenation, it is important to compare it with other treatments on the market. Emface is one such procedure that claims to offer comparable advantages but falls short in a number of ways:

Results are not long-lasting

The collagen-stimulating effects of Sofwave result in progressive and long-lasting changes in skin firmness and texture. However, Emface requires 4-6 weekly sessions to get the desired results. Since 4-6 sessions aren't enough to provide long-lasting results, Emface is considered to be more of a gimmick.

Does not target the root cause

Deep dermal layer penetration by Sofwave's ultrasonic radiation promotes the production of collagen and a general improvement in skin quality. Emface can provide temporary solution for your skin concerns, but it does not treat the root causes of skin aging to the same degree.

Limited application

Unlike Sofwave, which can be used to treat a variety of problem areas, Emface works only on a few areas. It does not address the jowl, neck and chest region.

More expensive

Since you need more sessions of Emface to get the desired results as compared to Sofwave and the results are not very long-lasting, this procedure is heavier on your pocket.

At Biolite Dubai, we recognize that each individual has different skin concerns and goals. We prefer Sofwave over Emface because of its versatility and proven results. It allows us to treat a variety of issues, from lifting, treating fine lines and wrinkles to improving skin laxity, guaranteeing outstanding results for our clients.
