SoftWave therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment. Some patients feel only a mild tapping or pulsing on the skin, while others experience slight pain or discomfort in the treatment area. Your specialist can adjust the intensity if discomfort is significant. The level of discomfort may also depend on the amount of pain the patient is already experiencing. Most patients are able to tolerate any discomfort for the duration of the treatment, which lasts just 10-15 minutes on average.
