This skin-tightening treatment has become the go-to for beauty-savvy women

Kerry Hanaphy’s eponymous South William St location is the first high-street clinic in Ireland to introduce Sofwave – the hottest non-invasive skincare treatment making waves across the globe.

“Skinovator” Kerry Hanaphy has long been at the cusp of new techniques and treatments throughout her 18-year aesthetics career, and is known for providing her clients with only the very best service.

Now, as the South William Street location becomes the first high-street clinic in Ireland to introduce Sofwave, Kerry is once again at the forefront of new technology. This non-invasive treatment is gaining fans everywhere from New York to London for its ability to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all without the need to go under the knife.

With zero downtime, instant results, little to no pain and only one session needed to see results, it’s no surprise the beauty elite are flocking in their droves. A session lasts just 30-45 minutes and uses a small (but mighty) handheld device that uses focused, high-frequency, high-intensity ultrasound technology, to produce heat below the surface of the skin, targeting the tissue in the mid-dermis. 

This naturally stimulates new collagen and elastin production, rebuilding the skin’s supportive network from the inside out without damaging the surface. The combination instantly blew Kerry away, and she knew it had to be on offer to her loyal client base.

What areas are suitable?

Sofwave can be used on a variety of areas across the face and neck to treat fine lines and wrinkles, lift the eyebrows, and tighten mild jowling and loose skin on the face, under the chin and across the neck. Further treatments across the body are currently being analysed and approved.  

Is it painful?

Thanks to a pre-treatment topical numbing cream, Sofwave causes little to no pain. The Sofwave device is also equipped with a cooling plate that works in tandem with ultrasound technology, ensuring the skin’s surface stays cool throughout. 

When will results be seen?

Immediate tightening can be seen after the first Sofwave session, with longer-lasting results noticed as soon as one week following the treatment. The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients are expected to see ongoing improvements for up to three months. 

To find out the best options for your skin, book a free consultation and talk through your skin journey with Kerry and the team.

The Kerry Hanaphy Clinic on South William Street, Dublin 2, offers Sofwave in four unique areas; The Full Face & Neck (RRP €3,250), Brow Lift (€1,250), Lower Face and Submental (€1,750) and Lower Face, Neck and Submental (€2,195). Find out more at kerryhanaphy.com.
