Over time, our skin becomes less elastic. Sun exposure, stress, smoking, pollutants in the air, and illness all conspire to create lines, wrinkles, and scars. Skin changes may be part of the natural aging process, but you have the option to reduce the visible signs of aging.
With the GentleWaves Skin Fitness system, you can restore and maintain healthier, smoother, and
What is LED Photomodulation?
The FDA-approved LED Photomodulation is the interaction of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to activate cells causing them to produce collagen and multiply. By building collagen, wrinkles are reduced and skin retains a more youthful, radiant appearance. LED Photomodulation also simultaneously suppresses collagen degrading enzymes that assist in the aging process. This combination of skin correction makes LED Photomodulation the perfect treatment to keep your skin fit.
How does LED Photomodulation work?
GentleWaves, the first LED device FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction, offers a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. In a process similar to photosynthesis in plants, the LED light interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce more collagen and elastin, while decreasing enzymes that breakdown skin. GentleWaves delivers this light in a unique, pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes.
Will the treatment hurt?
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.
What will I feel like after my treatment?
Within 4-8 treatments, skin becomes smoother and softer. Redness and brown spots will begin to fade.
Changes in the skin are progressive, so even months after your last treatment, you’ll notice continual
improvements in wrinkles and pores as well. You can return to normal activities and apply makeup
immediately following LED treatments.
Can I have LED Photomodulation with other treatments?
Yes. GentleWaves LED Photomodulation is an ideal stand-alone procedure, and in combination with
other rejuvenation techniques, it enhances the results, improves recovery, and ensures a true, full-face
treatment. It is highly complementary with other skin treatments such as Botox/Dysport and dermal
fillers, as well as laser and IPL treatments.
How is LED Photomodulation different from Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy?
Other light-based skin therapies including IPL and laser treatments rely on heat and thermal penetration
to create changes in skin appearance. LED Photomodulation does not use heat and the related tissue
trauma to affect change, therefore patients are not subject to the variables associated with thermal
wound-healing responses. GentleWaves Skin Fitness involves no pain, no side effects and no down time.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of treatments is required to get your skin in shape and looking great. The number of visits may
vary depending on the problem being treated. Results are progressive, so you will notice significant
improvement with each session. Since the skin will continue to age, maintenance treatments are
necessary to prolong and enhance healthier skin. Based on your skin’s specific needs, we will determine
the regimen that is best for you.
What are the benefits of LED Photomodulation?
With a series of treatments, GentleWaves reduces wrinkles and pores, and improves skin tone and
texture for stronger, smoother, better-looking skin that is radiant. GentleWaves can also be used to treat
sunburn. Since LED Photomodulation doesn’t require heat, patients feel no pain during the treatments.
GentleWaves is truly a pain free, risk free, and very affordable solution for shaping up your skin.
