GentleWaves LED Photomodulation
GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation technology is the interaction of light delivered through LEDs (light emitting diodes) to activate skin cells causing them to produce new collagen. Sun exposure, smoking and most environmental elements lead to skin aging and the breakdown of collagen in our skin. This technology converts light energy within the cells, similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants. GentleWaves® LED technology can now offer a totally natural, non-thermal method of skin rejuvenation to reduce the visible signs of aging.
GentleWaves® does not rely on thermal energy so there is no trauma to the skin, no pain or discomfort and no side effects. The main benefit is a smoother, softer and creamier looking skin with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, brown spots and skin redness.
Other major benefits from GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation include:
Painless, No anesthesia , No discomfort
No Downtime: Lunchtime procedure
Quick: Treatments can take less than 5 minutes
Suitable for All skin types
Affordable: Compared to many other anti-aging treatments
GentleWaves® has been scientifically tested and FDA submitted studies demonstrated a 60% global improvement in overall skin quality. In addition, GentleWaves has been found to be effective in improving the appearance of the neck and chest wrinkles, which has been difficult to treat up to now. GentleWaves® LED Photomodulation can also be used in conjunction with other procedures such as IPL, skin rejuvenating lasers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels & Botox® to enhance the results.
No. GentleWaves is a truly pain-free skin rejuvenation procedure. Treatment is quick and very relaxing. The energy delivered by the LEDs does not rely on heat, so it safely and gently treats all skin types.
Typically a series of 4-8 treatments is recommended. We recommend scheduling these once a week for consecutive weeks, or twice a week (depending on your schedule and availability).
Within 4-8 treatments, skin typically becomes smoother and softer, and redness and brown spots begin to fade. Changes in the skin are progressive, so even months after your last treatment, you’ll notice continual improvement in wrinkles and pores as well. You can return to normal activities and apply cosmetics immediately following your GentleWaves treatments.
